Very good restaurant. Our second time. We will definitely return with friends. Our only complaint was the noise of chairs moving on the floor upstairs. Food and service was excellent! Thank you

Enjoyed a nice dinner on the patio overlooking the pool with hills and vineyard in the background. Food was excellent with normal size portions. Nice wine/drink selection.

Always amazing food and incredible ambiance at Restaurant 17! The staff is very friendly and often remembers details from your last visit. I had the peach salad and mussels small plates and it was plenty for one person as a post-bike ride dinner!

The price to quality ratio is too high. The restaurant is a lovely setting and is truly something special. I’m just not sure this place has decided what it wants to be. We loved the farm to table commitment but the dishes simply were not memorable. My recommendation would be strive for some show-stopper dishes and focus on the quality of every single bite.

Very good food. We started out with the deviled eggs, which were quite tasty. I had a melon salad and shrimp and grits “small plate”, which was a bigger portion than I expected (but I still ate it all!) Both were very good. My wife had the flank steak, which was cooked just right. We ended by splitting the peach crisp for dessert, which was a very fine meal ender. Really good food; the only knock I have is that I wish the menu changed more often than it does.

Even though it had a modern decor, it had a warm ambience. The music was invasive, but the waitress accommodated me by turning the volume down. Music was not appropriate for the type of atmosphere. Service was excellent and the food delicious. Most of the patrons wore business casual attire, several women wore summer dresses, some of the men wore sport coats so my question is why does the manager, hostess, and wait staff wear jeans?
I loved the view of the trees in the mountains, but didn’t appreciate the poolside view. You may want to put greenery (shrubs, planters) to block this view.

I went in early July and fell in love with the hotel and restaurant. I set up a reservation for my parents’ anniversary and they loved it as well.

Main waiter disappeared after the food was ordered. Mussels served were half closed, steak had no seasoning and chocolate torte was burnt.

Very loud. The scallops were amazing. The trout was okay. One of the desserts was peach cobbler and was brought out cold. They corrected it and brought out a fresh one. I had been wanting to try Restaurant 17 for awhile and had high expectations but they didn’t deliver.

Robert, our server saved the day, he was great! We were immediately turned off due to the lack of service at the bar when we wanted to sit and have a drink first. After 10 minutes of not being acknowledged we decided to take a seat at our table. The food was delicious, only complaint was how quickly our 3 course meal was served, but it was restaurant week. The dessert stole the show, best part of the meal, hands down, besides the beautiful view!

Was a great evening with future family in law. Food was fantastic & wine was fantastic. Whole experience was great until we left when there was a shirtless man who appeared to be very inebriated & disgruntled. Would’ve loved more notice and precaution from the restaurant as this occurred right outside their entrance.

We were there for restaurant week because of the variety of choices. My husband had the empanada appetizer which was OK. I had the mussels which were great. Then came entrees... his game hen wasn’t cooked through and the fried polenta cake was soggy and purple! my duck confit was the most unappealing plate I have seen. The duck was over cooked (maybe left over?) and rested on a plate of brown stuff. Dessert was passable.
They did comp our drinks, but we will not return.

The atmosphere was like a 2nd rate country club . the view was of the pool. At one point , ayoung boy walked through the dining room with only wet swimming trunks dripping water and the noise from the pool was distracting. The food was outstanding except for the dessert.The chef is very creative .Sit upstairs if you go

My husband and I ordered the trout. We also had the Domestique salad. Food was prepared to perfection. It was a quiet evening so it was difficult to rate noise level. Staff was very friendly & attentive.

We stayed in the hotel last December, but never got to the restaurant. Now that we live here in the area, we went to 17 with friends...and we were really impressed. The food is imaginative, well-presented and very good. I haven’t had Duck in a long time, but the description intrigued me. It was well-cooked with a nice sear on the fat (could have been a bit more) but the meat was moist and not too rare. The sauce/veggies surrounding was fantastic with local corn, blueberries and micro greens. My wife had two small plates...one, a watermelon salad (photo) and a shrimp and grits. The shrimp dish she reported was good, but a bit too “thin” in texture for a good grits in her opinion. Dessert was a Chocolate Sundae...just OK...was more like ice cream with some fruit. Of course, ice cream is always a favorite. Great spot...we will certainly be coming back. Oh...BTW, the view of the mountains was terrific...and sitting on the deck on a nice night would be great!!!

The waiter was very good. The food quality was good. The food quantity was ridiculously small for the price we paid. A half of plate of pasta is not what I would call a classy experience. Nice place, nice ambience, nice waiter, food quantity terrible. Probably won’t be back.

The location cannot be beat. A great place for a special occasion. The lunch menu was a bit limited so not sure if they change it regularly if you stay there as a guest for several days. However, the chef was extremely accommodating so it seems they would modify or create off-menu items if desired. We sat outside overlooking the pool and the mountains. Cyclists can return from a ride and come straight to lunch without an issue. A nice, peaceful getaway.

Hidden gem. Gorgeous surroundings with lovely restaurant. Food exceptional. Was a fabulous treat. Only negative was the chocolate torte which wasn’t to our liking. Otherwise this restaurant redefined the culinary experience.

The food was good, not great, but there were clearly issues with service that night. Ambience is ok, not very warm or cozy, something as little as a votive would have helped. The biggest thing it has going for it is convenience, although much more interesting food can be found a 15 min drive from hotel.
