About Market 17

Market 17 is proud to be serving delicious, creative dishes that are literally from the farm right to the tables of our diners. We call this "wine country cuisine" because the emphasis is on fresh, clean food from top purveyors along with an abundant wine list.

For the more adventurous diner, Market 17 offers 'dining in the dark'. It is our chefs table in a private room that allows a new way to experience food. Once your sight is turned off, all the other senses are heightened. It's a fun and unique experience to enjoy our food. (Due to very limited seating, reservations for dining in the dark can only be made by phone)

Our menu will change daily and we'll always offer amazing tasting menus for you to sample what the chef has created. Come and experience for yourself what all the buzz is about!

Our dinners were beyond delicious. Everything was cooked to perfection. The mix of spices was almost exotic. Truly worth going back. Dessert was ok. Service was great. Very attentive waiter, but not intrusive.

The food was amazing, So flavorful and would definitely go back. My aunt said the filet mignon was one of the best she ever had. I had the only vegetarian dish on the menu and it was flavorful and delicious. I would have loved the option of a vegetarian appetizer besides a salad. The desserts were sub par. We ordered the cookies and carrot cake and Creme brûlée. All 3 were oily and we actually wasted the cookies. The wine list is very extensive and the manager recommended a delicious wine based on we told him. Overall AMAZING, but I would skip dessert

New Years Eve dinner with friends and we were treated like the only people in the house despite every table being occupied. Freddy our server was awesome, food delicious and flavorful. Marcos at bar is worth meeting to enjoy his encyclopedic knowledge of cocktails and the food.

We took my brother and sister-in-law out for a nice dinner and we were not disappointed. As we took our seats we could tell we were in an for an elegant and upscale experience. The wines and Belgium Ale we selected and the pork belly and ceviche appetizers we began with were all delicious and we had fun sampling them. All the entre selections we chose were outstanding and we agreed the seared tuna took the top honors at our table. The chocolate ganache dessert was outstanding as well. We had the best time! The only negative thing I can say is the big sign outside was damaged and left me wondering how it could be allowed to remain missing the "17" in the name Market 17.

The food was delicious, service was attentive and quick, although the entrées were a bit late getting out of the kitchen. The cocktails are well made, and they have a nice by-the-glass wine list.
I would definitely return and recommend.

 (Nashville)·Dined on December 28, 2017

We found this restaurant on Yelp while on vacation in Ft. Lauderdale. We were really looking for a great high-end seafood restaurant, but their seafood selections that evening were quite narrow. No fresh shrimp coctail to be found... This is because the menu changes daily based on availability? Frown.
We had the charcuterie to begin. Meat and cheese were delicious but the pickled vegetables were not pleasing to our palates. Some may like it but that is a personal taste thing.
We both ordered the filet, which was beautifully done and melted in the mouth! The vegetables were perfectly roasted, not over cooked and not raw. Bravo!
Our waiter was attentive, but not overly so, and very personable.
We dined outside, which was romantic.
It was not the seafood I was looking for that evening, but the food, server and ambiance made it a very enjoyable dining experience.
The only minor things to note: The location is difficult to find, really tucked away. Our cab driver knew where to drop us, but our driver at the end of the evening couldn't find us, so we had to walk across the street to the Walgreen's to meet up with him.
Another minor issue is that the outdoor dining area is so poorly lit that you must use your cell phone flashlight ap to read the menu or see your date. On the bright side, your makeup will look great no matter what. There is a 1 inch drop in the patio where the concrete has settled, which could have been a disaster in the dim light except that our server pointed it out. Thank goodness, because I manage to find every crack in the world to trip over, unfortunately.

Terrible experience. Website said that the entire menu was available. But we were only allowed to order from a price fixe menu. Cauliflower soup had no taste what so ever. Beet salad had huge chunks of mozzarella. Beef tenderloin was cooked good but way too salty. Duck confit was 50% fat. Carrot cake dessert was cake with a few pieces of carrot thrown in. Absolutely not worth the $$$$ spent. 1 star out of 5 is being generous.

What a great night. We celebrated our 30th anniversary and couldn’t have had a better dining experience. Our waiter, Chad, was awesome. He didn’t dote, but seemed to be there when we needed him. The food... wow. We had the chefs six course tasting menu. Each course was unique and very, very delicious. We will definitely be going back.

We went here to celebrate my sons birthday. The wait staff was very professional. We had the charcuterie which was delicious. I had the crispy duck confit, my son had the whole snapper, his fiancé had the shrimp and my hubby had the chicken thighs. Everything we had was very tasty and original. They use local omg whenever possible, which I really love for freshness and to support the local businesses. They brought out an ice cream scoop with candle at the end for my son which was a nice touch.
