While it’s an interesting place and a pretty setting, the restaurant had nothing but hard surfaces, including a concrete floor, no tablecloths, and unpadded chairs. There was a party upstairs, and the noise spilled right down to the dining area, so we chose to eat outside, but the only available table was in the sun, and it was quite warm. Our waiter was great, but food only so-so.

Wow! The setting is absolutely fantastic. A view of the mountains from a beautiful building that radiates tranquility. And amazingly the food and service only enhance this setting. A good wine list of reasonably priced New World and Old World wines. Great locally sourced menu. The Carolina trout was delicious. As was the duck breast. The goat cheesecake was a perfect way to end the meal. Well worth the short and scenic drive.

Finally got to experience this place! Our waiter seemed a little timid and inexperienced. My trout was fantastic, excellent presentation. My wife had chicken and loved it! Wine list was very good and we took advantage of that, really enjoyed our choice. Dessert was only real disappointment. Seemed too small and lacked panache.

Our server Brandon was the most positive thing about 17 although he should have noticed that my rather small martini glass was 1/3 filled when the olives were removed and 2/3 filled with olives included. I thought they were bringing the shaker as many classy restaurants do. But more Tito’s came after I pointed it out.

Food was “ok”. Medium burger was red inside. Small pasta plate was really small. Cheese platter was excellent.

We live nearby but had not been to Restaurant 17 in maybe 2 years. A lot of changes took place, and during those changes we had disappointing dining experiences. For whatever reason, we ate there again recently. Once again, they have experienced some changes, but I hope these last because this dinner was great for all 4 of us. If you haven't been to Restaurant 17 in a while, you should give it a try.

Everything was very good the ribeye steak was two pieces cut out of a larger piece so you felt like you were eating a New York strip.
My wife had the pork chop and it was a little tough appetizers sides drinks were all excellent next time I’ll get the lamb

Well we were blown away by the setting in the mountains. The restaurant is located in the Domestique Hotel, which looks like a French chateau... totally charming. The drinks are innovated and delicious as is the food. The menus is out of the ordinary and delicious. They serve in season only dishes. I had the soft shell crabs. They were uniquely prepared and delicious! My friend had the pork chop it was fantastic! Tender and juicy. We were 3 people so we had several appetizers all good.
The service was very warm, friendly, attentive and prideful.
Also they have excellent wine selection.
Seventeen is a jewel of a place.. a totally special experience

We enjoyed it. The lamb was not my favorite. I’m a big fan of lamb, and this one missed the mark. However, the cheese board was AMAZING. And the Sundae was fantastic as well.

Having just shared our disappointment, I did contact Danielle, the hotel manager. She was most understanding, and accepting of our honest feedback regarding our dining experience. And, we do believe her as she ensured us that our next experience will be a positive one.
Thanks to Danielle, we will be back.
Kudos to her!

We went during restaurant week. This is a very attractive venue and the service and food were extraordinary. Servings were generous, the wait staff very unobtrusive but attentive. This is a nice find in our new home, Greenville. It would be a top restaurant in Cincinnati, where we are from.

We had made reservations during Restaurant Week and showed up ten minutes early. The staff wasn't ready for a lunch crowd. We were seated after wandering around for 15 minutes looking for anyone working there (we were their only customers at that time). They didn't have any iced tea, so we drank water. My husband ordered coffee, it was served cold in a soup cup. They took our order before another couple arrived 20 minutes later, got seated and served them 15 minutes before us. We ordered sandwiches and soup and everything came out of the kitchen cold. (Melted cheese sandwiches are not very good when served cold.) We were all disappointed with Restaurant 17 - and we were so looking forward to our meal there. It felt as though the staff was busy prepping for their evening dinner and we were an inconvenience that interrupted their prep time. Their prices are a bit outrageous even for a high end restaurant.

Did not know it was restaurant week, so the menu was limited and the staff busy. I don't think they are used to having 100 diners. Felt pressured to order. The main courses were served within ten minutes of the first course. So, when I started on my shredded lamb and purple cabbage it was not only dry, overcooked, but also not warm. New waitstaff and new Chef. After Chef Greg McPhee and Chef Nick Graves, the bar is set pretty highly. I will go back next month and try again. I'm hoping this was just an off night.

Was extremely excited to finally try this restaurant. I was told by many people that it was not that great...I however wanted to give it a try. Well I was totally flabbergasted! There were more servers than people eating yet I waited 20 min for a glass of wine and was asked four different times what I would like to eat???? Anyway the food was great! The atmosphere fantastic but the service was horrible!!! Like I was in an alternate universe!
