    My wife and I had a great dinner and experience last night. Our wait staff was amazing and very attentive and friendly. Our food was very flavorful and served in a timely manner. I had the the steak which I like medium rare and it was perfect. My wife had the shrimp and she said it was also delicious. We split the ricotta for an appetizer which was really nice as well, but we left a little in the dish because we ran out of bread. Highly recommend this restaurant for the food, service, view, ambience, wine list, unique farm-fresh dishes, and the overall experience.

    We've dined at Restaurant 17 about six times now. We have always had fantastic service and amazing food. The menu changes based on the season and availability of items. Drink menu is also outstanding with a nice selection of wines and cocktails. It can be a very busy place, so make reservations.

    The restaurant has beautiful views, though the stark contrast in lighting on a sunny day makes photos difficult. With that, I am out of good things to say. We had a large party of 11 people. We were told initially we would have two servers, but other than plate delivery, there was only one. The service was excruciatingly slow. We were there for almost two and a half hours. There were long stretches where we received zero attention from our server and drink glasses sat empty. Why should the server care, though? They KNEW that due to the large party they would be receiving not the customary 15% gratuity automatically, not the 18% that most other fine dining establishments would charge for a large party, but TWENTY PERCENT! The service rendered was most certainly NOT deserving of the tipped (extorted) amount. We were celebrating the birthdays of four family members, and our experience was topped off with an exorbitant plating fee of $3 per person for the cake we brought in. Now we have done plenty of fine dining before, and certainly understand an uncorking or plating fee, but when slicing and putting cake on a plate costs twice as much as the cake itself, perhaps that’s a bit much? Saying as much to the manager fell on deaf ears because, “they sell desserts costing up to $15 and their servers work hard.” (Oh, really?) It’s safe to say that the next time we plan a family celebration, Restaurant 17 will not be considered as a possibility.

    My wife I were married at Hotel Domestique last year and it is our favorite place to visit on special occasions! 17 has the best food you are going to find in Greenville which, along with the Mediterranean ambiance, makes for an unforgettable experience every single time. You wouldn't believe you are 30 minutes from downtown Greenville. We recommend to anyone who asks and we will most definitely be back!

    We got there early to take in the scenery and grabbed a drink at the bar. Sam was great and offered multiple ways to make an espresso martini. The staff seemed to really engage in making sure everyone got top service. Michael, our server, was attentive and always there when we needed something, but gave us enough time to enjoy. The food was phenomenal. The portions were great sizes and had multiple portion sizes to choose from. I’ll be dreaming about the ricotta dip!

    We celebrated our 31st anniversary here and it was so lovely. We had a nice table with a lovely view and exceptional service. Barb was friendly and personable. The brussels sprouts were the best we've ever tasted and my husband's rotini pasta with housemade ricotta was fabulous! However, my NY steak was a bit tough and lacking in flavor otherwise I would give this dining experience a 5 out of 5 stars. We will definitely return to Restaurant 17.

    Visited on a Sunday night which proved very quiet with only a few tables booked. Food and service were both good, but menu is pretty limited. The wine list is pretty good and has a varied selection with focus on European wines. A more varied menu with more options would help this become a more frequent repeat visit type of place.

    I had heard such wonderful reviews of Restaurant 17 and when it was an option for Greenville Restaurant Week, it was the first place we reserved. The only problem, which was NOT the restaurant’s fault, but it was so cold in the upstairs dining room. But, the Manager moved us to under a heater. And, made this 5 Star food and experience even more comfortable. I will most definitely be back in the Spring and can’t wait to eat outside on the Terrace. The location is stunning and service was impeccable. Even met the Sous Chef Chris as we were checking out the Hotel and He deserves recognition. And, needs to compete on Food Network’s CHOPPED show!!!!!
