What a great feeling this restaurant has, from the location and decor, to the ambience. My husband and I drove from Greenville to find this gem and we were rewarded when we found they had foie gras on the menu.

Having just shared our disappointment, I did contact Danielle, the hotel manager. She was most understanding, and accepting of our honest feedback regarding our dining experience. And, we do believe her as she ensured us that our next experience will be a positive one.
Thanks to Danielle, we will be back.
Kudos to her!

It was a great atmosphere, but dinner didn't last very long. We were one of the last people there and it was only 9:30. Foot was delicious and cooked very well. Service was very polite and great to us.

This was our third time to go for Valentine's Day and we would go again. They had a three-course meal and we enjoyed it all. From the oysters to the duck and then the chocolate fondue. It was all delicious.

We went during restaurant week. This is a very attractive venue and the service and food were extraordinary. Servings were generous, the wait staff very unobtrusive but attentive. This is a nice find in our new home, Greenville. It would be a top restaurant in Cincinnati, where we are from.

We had made reservations during Restaurant Week and showed up ten minutes early. The staff wasn't ready for a lunch crowd. We were seated after wandering around for 15 minutes looking for anyone working there (we were their only customers at that time). They didn't have any iced tea, so we drank water. My husband ordered coffee, it was served cold in a soup cup. They took our order before another couple arrived 20 minutes later, got seated and served them 15 minutes before us. We ordered sandwiches and soup and everything came out of the kitchen cold. (Melted cheese sandwiches are not very good when served cold.) We were all disappointed with Restaurant 17 - and we were so looking forward to our meal there. It felt as though the staff was busy prepping for their evening dinner and we were an inconvenience that interrupted their prep time. Their prices are a bit outrageous even for a high end restaurant.

Thanks to their participation in Restaurant Week, we were able to sample their fine restaurant and spectacular mountain views after our recent move to Greenville. Beautifully presented and mouth-watering cuisine with and equally impressive wine list. We will be regulars!

Did not know it was restaurant week, so the menu was limited and the staff busy. I don't think they are used to having 100 diners. Felt pressured to order. The main courses were served within ten minutes of the first course. So, when I started on my shredded lamb and purple cabbage it was not only dry, overcooked, but also not warm. New waitstaff and new Chef. After Chef Greg McPhee and Chef Nick Graves, the bar is set pretty highly. I will go back next month and try again. I'm hoping this was just an off night.

Was extremely excited to finally try this restaurant. I was told by many people that it was not that great...I however wanted to give it a try. Well I was totally flabbergasted! There were more servers than people eating yet I waited 20 min for a glass of wine and was asked four different times what I would like to eat???? Anyway the food was great! The atmosphere fantastic but the service was horrible!!! Like I was in an alternate universe!

Very good meal. I had an appetizer of crab rangoon that was quite goos and grouper for the main that was very tasty. The panna cotta for dessert was a nice finish. My wife had an appetizer of country ham with johnnycakes that was very good and a main of a small plate of shrimp and grits that she enjoyed a lot. We like this restaurant because the menu is constantly changing and of exceptional quality. I wish they would improve the look a bit by replacing the plastic table tops and plastic chairs with something more befitting the price range.

The food was good but not great. The crab "wontons" not as crispy as they should have been. The risotto was overdone. The pear sald was very good and the pork chop was cooked well.
All the food ideas and combinations were good ideas but not executed as well as they could have been. Thanks

We have enjoyed Restaurant 17 over the years, but we were disappointed this visit. My duck dish was wonderful but my wife’s beef dish was not good at all. Further, the service was inattentive in a room with few other guests. The new menu was limited as well. We will try it again but this was not up to par.

Both hubby and I ordered the duck confit and risotto. When our food arrived we asked where the duck was and the waiter said it was in the risotto. We searched and searched and believe the dish should have been duck-flavored. Even with that mishap...the food was so amazing we barely missed the hidden duck. We’ll definitely be back. We’ll maybe bring a gift of duck callers so we can find the duck in the future. LOL

My fiancé and I are getting married at the Hotel and wanted to see how the food, ambiance and service were going to be prior to big day. I must say that everything want absolutely incredible our server Robert had just started working there but provided excellent service. When he didn’t know the answer to the questions we asked he was honest and found the answers for us immediately. The ambiance was perfect! And the Food! To sum the food up in one word would be impossible! There was a whirlwind of tastebud emotions going off with every bite from each dish the chicken lollipops, the pecan crusted scallops, ribeye, the cauliflower polenta

I was in the Asheville area and made trip to Hotel Domestique and Restaurant 17 due to being a fan of George Hincapie’s. I loved the ambiance and did get that French countryside feeling. I had the arugula salad, which was fantastic! Such a delicious mustardy? dressing that perfectly complemented the peppery tang of the arugula. The accompanying goat cheese croquet was delicious. My main course was the veal parmesan. While tasty, it was not my favorite, and is why I gave the food a 4 rating. The veal was a thicker than usual cut and had a nice crispy coating as though it had been in the deep cooker. I didn’t mind that so much as the flavor of the pasta sauce. I can’t place what herb was used to make it different, but it just didn’t quite work for me. The plating seemed odd to me also—it was all on one side of the plate and 1/2 the plate was empty. (Not to say I didn’t eat it or enjoy it!) For dessert I tried the sweet potato semifreddo, which I liked a lot. The service was very good and I received just the right amount of attention. I would love to come back and try more things.

We had been trying to get to Restaurant 17 for a while, so we decided to go for my birthday. We arrived early for our reservation and had no problem sitting at the bar until our reserved time. We were 1 of 3 or 4 other couples waiting in the bar for our tables. Odd thing was, the hostess was emphatic that they were fully booked, but there were at least 4 open tables in the dining room at any given time. There was a group of ladies seated behind us that were extremely loud. I wouldn't consider this restaurant good for a romantic dinner... there are too many hard surfaces to bounce the noise around. For all the hype we heard before going, the food was good, but not exceptional. Our waiter, Sam, was excellent. We took Uber there, but became concerned finding that it's kind of in the middle of nowhere. We asked the hostess and she said she would look into alternative ride solutions for us in case we couldn't get a ride back to Greenville. However, she was gone when we finished dinner never coming to us to let us know what alternative options there might be. My husband and I agree that we would be unlikely to return.
