    Lovely atmosphere and good service. However, there was a party of 20 who were being served at the same time as us so it took a long time to get our food. They did come over and apologize for the wait (2x) but when we got our food it was over cooked (short ribs) and lukewarm. Disappointing for a restaurant at this price point. Drinks were great.

    Restaurant 17 is a favorite of mine . The setting is visually pleasing and just a short drive from Greenville. It has a charming european feel. The food has always been delectable, but the service is lacking. I suppose adequate staffing is difficult in today's world. We will continue to frequent, but always plan to enjoy a leisurely stay.

    We come to Restaurant 17 often - because the food is exquisite and the service is excellent. No matter whether we visit for breakfast (or the lovely Sunday brunch), lunch or dinner, we are always impressed. Our party of 4 for dinner enjoyed appetizers, a selection of the dinner entrees and a variety of drink options - all perfectly prepared. We will be back soon!

    We enjoyed a beautiful evening having dinner in the courtyard. Food was excellent, especially the charcuterie plate. Service was a lot slower than usual but I think that was because they were short-staffed. We didn't mind that much overall since we were enjoying our time there.

    The food is excellent. You'll find some seasonal variations on familiar recipes that perfectly suit the day or night. We had brunch and the omelet was perfect. Service is pleasant and accommodating, and the view is beautiful. It's a hidden gem, stop in next time you're running from Greenville to Hendersonville, just off Hwy 25. You'll be glad you did!

    The restaurant could be great but instead it felt bare bones. I don't need oversized plates but this food was minimal. The beet and squash salad could have used some flavor and a few more greens of arugula. My octopus was tepid and lonely. The atmosphere on the patio while allowing for a pretty view felt cold and not welcoming.

    We dined here for the first time for our 26th Anniversary. Amazing experience. We enjoyed drinks at the bar for about 90 minutes before our reservation time. The bar mixologist was excellent. The menu of cocktails was diverse and unique. We enjoyed our cocktails out on the patio area with a beautiful view of the surrounding hills on a clear crisp night. For dinner we started with the Buttermilk Ricotta Dip with grilled Focaccia bread. One of the best things I have ever had. So simple yet so flavorful. For dinner we ordered the Sausage and Peppers and Truffle and Mushroom Burrata. Both unbelievable. So flavorful and presented beautifully. The dining atmosphere was excellent as was the service. We will definitely return.

    They made it very special for my boyfriends birthday! We had excellent service and the views were so breathtaking. The appetizers were amazing and our entrees took a little bit to come out. The manager apologized and gave us a great discount for the minor inconvenience. We did not mind at all. Overall an amazing and romantic experience and I highly recommend! The ingredients are all fresh from the state as well

    When I made the reservation, I asked for outdoor sitting and I mentioned that it was for my daughter's birthday celebration. When they called me to re-confirm the reservation, I explained that I wanted a table next to the fountain. They said that it was called courtyard and they did not have any available, but at the time of our arrival if they could have one, they would let me know. We arrived at the restaurant, and they did not mention anything about the courtyard sitting, so they put us in the patio area. After ordering the appetizer, we went for a walk for some minutes around the courtyard and we saw two empty tables ..so there were some available tables there !!. When the waiter went the first time to our table , he never asked the reason we were there....I was originally expecting like a note on the table saying "Happy Birthday"...(this because days ago I took my wife to this restaurant for our anniversary and there was a note on the table saying" Happy Anniversary" and they gave us as a present a glass of Champagne to each of us). We finished the dinner and we asked for the check. Nobody had said anything until this point about our birthday celebration, so I finally thought they had forgotten the main reason of being in that restaurant. When the waiter came to our table to pick up the signed check..he said " Happy Birthday".....I was in shock !!. They had not forgotten why we were there !!. They said it just the last second. It was a shame !!

    Loved our girls night out here! The crafted cocktails were great and they had a nice wine selection. We ordered the buttermilk ricotta for appetizer, the pumpkin ravioli and the New York strip for dinner and all was delicious! But the scenery and atmosphere is worth the trip here alone! We sat in the courtyard since the weather was nice but the whole place is just beautiful! You feel a world away in just a short drive!
