One of the best in Harrisburg with perfect Asian fusion cuisine, a lively environment, and excellent service. I haven’t had a bad meal here. The tuna was perfect and the drinks were well made.

1700 is a restaurant that immediately comes to mind, whenever we're dining out. We can't say enough about the quality of food, the imaginative way it's presented and the amazing flavor. It's always a great experience, and we mean always. We've never walked away disappointed. Whenever we step foot in 1700, there is a sense of being enveloped in a tasteful, calm and sophisticated environment without being pretentious. We love dining at 1700!
