Perfect place to be with my friends that I haven't seen in a while. Service was great. We needed time to catch up and the waitress did not rush us at all. She gave us plenty of time to sit and chat without feeling pressure to give up the table.
I took a small group here for dinner before a comedy show and it went extremely well. The wait staff was attentive and prompt and the food was delicious. Try the house made chips with the blue cheese sauce as a starter. Our group loved them.
Have been here for the last 4 Thanksgiving and usually very busy. Made a reservation and when we arrived there were only 3 other tables. Not impressed with the menu, pricing or the service. Had to ask for rolls and what came out was marble wheat toast. Sorry not for a Thanksgiving dinner at $55 person
The wife and I decided to dine at any restaurant during Restaurant Week as a last hurrah before welcoming a child into our lives. We ended up here because reservations were available here as opposed to all of the more desirable restaurants. Decor is modern and neat. Live music for the night was nice, both audible but unobtrusive.
Pros: - Friendly staff, helpful despite slow food service. - Large and delicious desserts. - I would recommend the crab chowder.
Cons: - Just about anything I tried to order was unavailable. - Slow service despite the restaurant being pretty empty.
Came to T17 for Restaurant Week on a Friday evening. Although this is a nice looking place it was such a bad choice in the end. Upon arrival no one greeted us for some time. The service was so poor with long waits in between each course. My party was not satisfied w/meal. It was a couple of things that was good such as the braised beef and beef quesadilla but for the most part the meals were not very enjoyable. I really feel that the poor service is what made the evening bad. Overall it took over 2 hours to finish a 4 course meal when there was really no other customers in the restaurant. So would not recommend this place for anyone's dinning experience.
