The atmosphere was good, the food was good, the service was good, we ate outside every day was nice
The server was friendly and efficient. The food was mediocre with a high price. Nice restaurant for cocktails but I wouldn’t plan on getting a great meal. We were one of only three tables in the entire restaurant. We recognize it is hard times financially for restaurants and are grateful that we have any place to eat out at all considering this virus situation.
Great food and quite place. In a great part of Tampa.
We celebrated my friend's 40th birthday here. They were so easy to work with and made it a night to remember. We highly recommend coming here!
Always great service and food! My husband and I have NEVER been disappointed! We enjoy trying the specials but the puffy tacos apps are a must.
Usually enjoy Michelle's service and attention but she was on vacation and Hannah was in her place. Very hospitable and great conversation!
Dinner was great I was there for Father’s Day. The Father’s Day menu was fantastic. And that Southern cornbread is the TRUTH!!
Drinks perfectly crafted, excellent food and outstanding service. I'll be back!!
My daughter and I had dinner at 717. It couldn't have been nicer. We had a spacious booth in the back. Our waitress was delightful and we were able to find items that suited our tastes. In this period of social distancing our table was perfect. We had just about finished eating when 2 booths across the way were occupied.
We had an amazing brunch! Service and food were excellent!
Food and service always very good.!
Very good,food could have been warmer.
Even though the Covid situation provides some understandable challenges, here is a description of our recent dining experience. We ordered a glass of white wine and Blanton's bourbon, received a glass of white wine and red wine. Waitress went back to fix the order, then I was told they were out of Blanton's. Table bread was burned and dry. Pork belly appetizer was not crispy and mostly cold. Ordered the steak dinner, which was supposed to come with a chef-crafted beer. When I asked the waitress if it did in fact come with the beer when she delivered my plate, she answered, "oh sure, I can get that for you." The dish I was given came with mashed potatoes instead of a specialty potato cake. Waitress took it back to the kitchen, then came back and told me they were out of the potato cake so the chef just used mashed potatoes instead. I was given the option to order a free additional side. At this point, my wife was midway through her dinner, and my steak was getting cold, so I declined. Turns out the steak was dry and overcooked, medium-well at best, and I order medium-rare. I've had better steak at Applebees, shocking considering they charge $42 for this dish. They did offer a free desert, but the dinner was ruined so we got the bill and left. At no point were we offered an apology, we were constantly treated as if we had special requests. The manager said "looks like we ran out of that potato cake huh." I have no idea why they would think it is fine to substitute components of their most expensive dish without telling the customer first. Just because there might be challenges with provisions doesn't mean they can throw anything on a plate and assume that it is close enough. Shameless. Thoroughly ruined a birthday celebration dinner.
We always enjoy 717. Rock-solid menu (we are addicted to the cauliflower gratin), great service staff, diverse wine & cocktail menu...it's always a reliable 'go to.' The one shortcoming? Loud music that is better suited for a club after midnight than a SoHo restaurant at 730pm on a Saturday! Very challenging to hear dinner companions and staff--but a simple fix! Hey 717--try some groovy upbeat house music at a lower volume! Otherwise, a definite 'recommend.'
717 South will never fail you. Tiffany’s was on target every step of the way. Highly recommend 717 South for any occasion. Always upbeat and attentive staff
We celebrated my mother’s birthday here and it was perfect. Our server Anthony was attentive, informative and very personable. Food was amazing, all the seafood dishes were delicious including scallops appetizers. Extensive wine list with lots of good choices under $50. We will be back!
Food was really good.
The 717 South not only has excellent and delicious food, but the atmosphere is exceptionally relaxing and comfortable. The Whiskey Pig and the Sea Bass with polenta are our favorites. The staff is always pleasant and very knowledgable of the menu, and of course they are conscientious of the current pandemic situation in regards to your safety.
Hannah is an excellent server in all respects!
Always enjoyable with very good service and delicious food. I highly recommend.
Love this restaurant, always have a great meal here
We had been here several years ago and were not happy the food.
I was told the restaurant is under different ownership. The food and set this time were excellent. We are definitely going back.
Great QPR, huge portions, great food and service, decent wine selection...
Waiter was friendly and enjoyed our first time visit at 717.
overall a nice evening -some dishes were great - a few were cold and portion size was skimpy
felt very safe
Delicious food! Our server Angelique is always pleasant and upbeat!
We had a delicious meal and good service. I felt that they did all that is required to be safe during the virus.
The food was fantastic, the service was excellent, and the atmosphere was very pleasant and relaxing.
I haven’t been to 717 in YEARS but we needed an escape from home isolation and 717 had an opening. My husband and I met another couple. 717 is doing a great job spacing parties and our waitress was fantastic. The tuna was excellent and perfectly prepared. Food did take longer than expected to arrive, I suspect because they’re managing takeout also. 100% worth the wait. We will add this into our regular rotation!
The food and service was excellent. We felt very comfortable with the safety precautions in place.
The food was very well prepared and the service was terrific. We really enjoyed the scallops appetizer and the grouper.
I like the menu at 717 S. My husband and I had the brunch. He ordered the pulled pork and poach eggs, he is still talking about how delicious the combo was. I had the cuban also with poached eggs cooked perfectly. We enjoyed two glasses of wine and one dessert. Our bill was about $60.
We felt the restaurant was clean and staff made us feel safe. This was our first dinning out since restaurants have reopened .
Excellent food, drinks and service. We will be back for sure!
717 South was excellent. Everything cooked to perfection and the wait staff was friendly and attentive. We will definitely be back...
I loved the mushroom risotto with chicken. Exceptional taste and a good size portion, too!
Dinner and atmosphere was fabulous
Angelica provided outstanding service!
Mother’s Day. We had a reservation, but we still had to wait 20 min. I didn’t care for that, but to only have one dessert choice was def. not cool. We love this place and have been many times. I’m going to chalk this up to holiday and learning the ‘new normal’ with this virus. Hopefully next time will be better....
Just opened up from the Virus. Did a good job. Glad to get out and see they were up and going again.
The service was awesome! Great cocktail selection and the Skillet French fries poutine was so delicious! I hope they keep them on the regular menu. One of the best shrimp and grits too!
