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”.

Elegant presentation and the food was amazing. We had the beet/berry salad. It was healthy and beautiful. My husband had the burger and fries. Really exceptional. My vegetable plate was a 10. Amazing combination of flavors. Highly recommend this restaurant.

I brought the wife to Restaurant 17 for a early Mother’s Day. The wait staff, food, and ambiance was spectacular as usual and a great way to finish a weekend of cycling and enjoying the nearby towns of Travelers Rest and Greenville. Thanks for making it a special early Mother’s Day!

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)!!

This is by far my favorite restaurant in the area! The food is always perfect. The views are beautiful with the grounds and the Blue Ridge Mountains. All the staff has one goal to make sure you have the best experience possible! No matter what occasion you are going for it is not going to disappoint. You can see the love and passion on each plate that Chef Haydn Shaak and his team has for the culinary arts! We bought our neighbors for their first time and now they can't wait to go back! I tell everyone about Restaurant 17!

The location and service was very good. The speciality cocktails were very yummy and the wine list was good. The food was not up to expectations. Bread was stale and the appetizers was not as described. The sausage and pasta small plate was very good but basic. The Domestique Puttanesca was below average. Oily, lacking flavor and made with gluten free ziti( not specified on menu). The location and service made up for the lack of a fine dining experience.

As I waited for my date to arrive, I sat at the bar with a nice view out the window at the mountains. Had two scotches that were fine and date had a couple glasses of wine. We were moved to our table and the service was serviced by the bartender. No appetizers offered and asked that there were none. I order Shrimp and Grits, now I am 6'5" by 275 lbs. and they brought me out, what I believe to be the worst serving I have ever had in my life. Grease was floating on top of the grits and the two pieces of 1/4 by 1/4 bacon was pitiful. Now for the shrimp, I took out of my pocket to verify, the size of the shrimp was hidden under the dime. So I enjoyed the total of five shrimps in my bowl of greasy grits that I not even if the grits weren't instant.

All this for a grand total of $100.00
