717 South Ratings and Reviews
Had great food and drinks. Apps and drinks came out immediately. Dinner took a while due to the server chatting it up with another table for about ten to fifteen minutes. Watched out plates be put out for her to bring to us. Another server wound up doing it because she was chatting it up with the other table. The server who brought us our food gave our server a look like what are you doing.
717 is fantastic! It is a great spot for dinner, but an outstanding place for lunch. Their lunch specials are always delicious and their chef changes the specials up often. Additionally, the service is very friendly without being overbearing. I meet clients as well as friends at 717 for lunch often and it is a consistent good choice. I highly recommend 717 for a great meal and outstanding service.
We had a lovely Christmas Eve meal that was delicious and perfect for the occasion. The bar area was really beautiful. It wasn't too loud for the older set that was visiting and the menu was varied enough for you and old. We will go back. Excellent service too.
The food was very good but the usual American menu--nothing out of the ordinary but done well. The atmosphere is very pleasant. I will compliment the service--we had 8:15 reservations but one of our party was 25 minutes late (yes, that was most irritating). The kitchen closes at 9:00. Our server (I think her name was Sylvia) was very nice about the wait and made sure that we had anything we needed while we waited (and waiter and waited). She gave us fantastic service--we never felt that we were being hurried along.
717 South is a great restaurant in south Tampa. It’s cozy but beautiful in the inside. The wine list is extensive .... we chose a Malbec that was wonderful! The food is fresh and delicious. There’s lots of choices for everyone! Our waiter was attentive and helpful . We went there before seeing a play at the Performance Arts Center and realized how close it is. We will be returning soon!
Fantastic food and service. The restaurant was cozy and quiet which would make a wonderful option for romantic dinners or dinners where you want to hold an actual conversation. Our server was very attentive, upbeat, and always kept our water glass full. My colleague said they had the best lamb chops he's eaten in a while and it was perfectly cooked. The smoked pork chop was outstanding and oh so tender. The other two people in our party opted for the Wild Mushroom Risotto with Shrimp and Scallops and said it was to die for. We were too full for dessert but split a creme brulee anyway and it was wonderfully light and creamy. We will definitely go back to 717 South.
Wife and I went to our go place for special occasions, This time it was our 12th Anniversary. Lina was our server and was very cordial and helpful. Wife had the maccadaminan chicken and I had the pork chop, both were excellent. Wine and beer for starters while enjoying the bread and marinara sauce. Quiet Sunday night so we were able to hear our own conversations. All in all a special night, thanks 717
I was really impressed. The Risotto was wonderful. We also shared the special that day, grouper with gnocchi and something else that I've forgotten but the meal wasn't forgettable, it was delicious, the fish was cooked perfectly and not loaded down with sauce so you could enjoy the taste of the fish. We had a booth and we could hear each other talk (business meal at 7pm) which to me is the most important thing. We were staying at the Marriott Waterside and it was just an $8.00 Uber ride away so very convenient. The area is really hopping with restaurants. The Uber driver said it would be packed by 9pm (it was Saturday night). Would highly recommend this restaurant. Also to me from Boston area, very good value, food was exceptional for the price.
Haven’t been to 717 in a couple of years and it once again did not disappoint! Scheduled through Open Table and were promptly seated by a friendly hostess. My risotto was so creamy and the scallops were cooked to perfection. My husband and friend both ordered the seared tuna and it was cooked perfectly. Her husband ordered the steak and also cooked perfectly rare. Our waiter proactively split our salads which were both delicious! Wonderful meal and experience.
