We had a great time at Restaurant 17 for our anniversary dinner. The food and cocktails were delicious and it was so nice to watch the sun set over the mountains and have a nightcap by the fire pit under the stars. We'll definitely be back! Hopefully to spend the night :)

Staff seemed very flustered, it took a good 10 minutes for us to finally be greeted. The food was mediocre at best. We were disappointed, as we've been several times and this was by far the worst. Not sure we would return.

Thank you for your review. We apologize that your experience was not up to par. We had a storm partially knock out out power, and we were without internet all evening, which resulted in major technical difficulties. Our staff did their absolute best to keep the restaurant open. Our host team had to reconfigure seating for all of the guests who had requested to be seated outdoors to ensure all of our guests could be accommodated. I apologize your experience suffered as a result.

First time here since Covid…and it was a pleasure. Celebrated our anniversary, and came in through a really strong thunderstorm. Pulled up to the front door and one of the hostesses came out with an opened umbrella before we even stopped the car. My wife was able to get into the restaurant without a drop of rain. I parked and came in under my own umbrella…the hostess took my umbrella and gave me a cloth towel to dry any rain off my hands or arms. Once seated, we ordered a couple of drinks - delicious! We ordered the charcuterie board, which was plenty of food but since we were pretty hungry, we also ordered two small plates for dinner. Both pasta dishes were delicious…my sage sausage and pasta was so filling! We had no room for dessert. Had a wonderful evening and definitely will be back!

This was our first time dining at Restaurant 17 and we will definitely be going there again. The food was awesome, our server Angie was a pleasure and the staff were great!! We will definitely share with our friends to try this place. The prices were reasonable and again, the food was well worth the money.

Restaurant 17 was outstanding- food is at high level both creatively and with execution. Clearly talent in the kitchen. Well worth the drive from Greenville, both for the food and the setting with mountains views.

We had reserved a table on the patio, but not specify the covered part. It was just sunny for brunch outside. If you like to sit outside in the sun take a hat. The food was great, we ended up eating inside. Beautiful place, good service, a very nice outing on a beautiful day.

Great food and service (Sam) for birthday dinner. It was a warm and sunny evening and we sat outside in the courtyard. Very pretty and the tables were far spaced, and situated perfectly to be in the shade of the trees.

Great venue but they screwed up where they place the tables and restaurant. The restaurant overlooks the swimming pool while adjacent to it is a lovely area that I’ve looks the former vineyard and mountains. No table cloths, cheap tables and chairs and a very limited menu proved disappointing. The pictures show the OTHER side of where the restaurant is, and that’s truly beautiful. We were disappointed.

We had a fabulous meal and excellent service not to mention a beautiful view. Will definitely return. The beet starter and burrata starter were out of this world and it seemed the sauce work on each of our entrees was of note. The 4 of us had different entrees-had trout, fried chicken, beef, and a pork chop entree and 2 of us took home leftovers...large servings.

Resturant 17 has two above average key items from my overall three star rating.
The two key items:
- an incredible view
- and a chef who can prepare Charleston & Napa Valley type of foods. Food prep & presentation were outstanding.
The hostess was very friendly & professional and we were seated promptly.
After those two key items, the overall quality deteriorates.
Our server was friendly except he would literally disappear for 10-15 minutes at a time.
We ordered cocktails and fortunately they arrived before sunset... There were no large parties and the restaurant was not at capacity. So, we were uncertain of the delays.
The interior of the restaurant is at best tired and the beautiful views are only obscured by dirty windows. We recommend you dine outdoors.
If your view is an asset, invest in professional window cleaners.
Restaurant 17 is located in a unique setting not far from Greenville.
The restaurant is “kid-friendly”.

WOW.
I love finding new hideaways and gems worthy of review, and Restaurant 17 was no exception. Dinner under the stars in the cool mountain air was perfect for our 35th Anniversary! The front of house staff was very professional and accommodating, and our waiter had good knowledge of the menu options. Appetizers, salad, entrees and dessert were all truly delicious (thanks, Chef!). All food items are locally sourced, as well.
Restaurant 17 is located at Hotel Domestique in Travelers Rest, S.C. - sounds far but was an easy scenic drive from Greenville. We got a tour of the hotel and a glimpse of their rooms - so if you can play hooky and spend the night, you'll be happy you did.
ENJOY.

The food presentation was just ok, but the desert was terrible.
The steak flavor was very good, I asked for medium and received medium rare, but it’s ok.
The pasta.... that one was amazing, perfectly executed (flavor and texture)!!
