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.

Surrounded by rolling countryside with a view to the mountains. Such a special spot with delicious upscale food.

Excellent food and service with a regularly-changing menu. This time, two of us had outstanding scallops and pork belly, one had a really tasty ox-tail spaghetti chitarra, and one had very delicious short ribs. The salads are very good and large, deserts are limited but very good, and the cheese plate appetizer was excellent.

Overall, we experienced terrible service both at the bar and during dinner. The bartender didn’t acknowledge us even thought he only had two other customers. Eventually we had to ask for menus and were extremely surprised to receive two glasses of wine when my husband ordered a beer. We were even more surprised when the bartender charged us incorrectly for the wine but didn’t say anything. Our server at dinner was equally slow. We enjoyed the cheese plate, arugula salad, and burger, but my husband’s scallops were chewy and underdone. Ultimately, we asked for our check half way through our entrees because we didn’t want to wait another 40 mins for our server to return. Gorgeous view and nice dinner but not worth the drive or cost with such terrible service. We will not return.

the hostess was amazing. However we were served bloody raw chicken that the server said was fine to eat because it had been brined. Our server was beyond rude the whole time. We had called ahead about a dairy allergy and he refused to speak to the kitchen to see if the accommodations they had said were possible when we called days before our reservation were actually possible. The plates were very small for the price and didn’t it taste that good. I would not return. The building was beautiful. Such a shame the experience didn’t come anywhere close

Dining on the patio was amazing. Really incredible atmosphere and attentive staff that made it a wonderful experience for my husband and I. I love that they bake their own bread and make their own pastas and everything that came out was very fresh and the presentation was quite impressive. Nothing beats tapas style dining with a mountain view.

Restaurant 17 is yet another restaurant with great potential, that falls short due to poor execution. My wife and I visited during Greenville Restaurant Week, and R17 had a three-course menu. We made our selections and waited a very long time for our first course. Once it finally came, our main entrees (second course) came no more than 2minutes later. I had ordered fish and my wife steak and neither tasted properly as the fish was cold (they only offered that re-heating would probably not a good idea, so I was stuck with cold food) and my wife's steak required "keeping warm" which obviously changed the cooking temperature. At the end of the day, the service was not outwardly bad, nor was the food bad, but at this price point, the execution did not meet expectations. Granted, the hostess happily met our seating request, the cocktails at the bar were excellent and the waiter team acknowledged my wife's food allergies as noted in our reservation. The location is excellent and we were seated outside, as requested, and had unobstructed views of the mountains. At the end of the day, Restaurant 17 is a good, but not great restaurant, which is disappointing as there is so much potential.

This is a lovely place with really creative, beautifully served, food (lamb meatballs and tomato pie were our favorites, but everything was very good). We live (relatively) close, but want to come back to stay; its adjacent Hotel Domestique is very romantic! (the setting overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains is breath-taking)

The food was excellent, fresh, local produce and ingredients. Food preparation was excellent and to our liking. Really loved the devil’s eggs, tomato pie and tomahawk ribeye. Good wines as well as by the glass. Service was good, but a bit slow and servers were overworked, wait for food was a bit slow but overall an excellent experience! They even surprised my wife with a complementary dessert for her birthday.
