The server was inattentive while having few customers to wait on. The food was pretty good and nicely plated.

A brasserie, in France, is a place where you can eat at any time, just a salad or just a dessert or a full . meal, or just have a drink, and that's exactly what you can do here

Ok if you are in the city this place has room,

Saturday night is pretty busy in town, not here.

Seriously its a bar off the hotel, and stick to bar grub.

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

Food was great, reasonably priced, the lady on the front desk was fabulous, friendly, helpful with a huge smile. One of the other waitresses was a little terse and a bit serious

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.

room: needs complete make-over. chairs just hanging together, new paint job needed, new floor needed.
service: cup of tea came w/o teacup. then cup came without teaspoon.
at lease they didn't rush us out, but that may be because there were very few customers.
price matches the premium hotel they are in, but Tavern 17 does not deserve the fee.
should have gone to a diner for Sunday lunch.

I had a great meal at Tavern 17 and so did everyone else in my party, however slightly overpriced. Also, the wait staff was very rude and not welcoming or helpful at all. Also the windows were all open and the restaurant was freezing cold.

Waffles and smoked salmon Benedict were good. Service was extremely amateur. No smile or eye contact. Dropped off my credit card on the table and didn't even give my date and I a proper farewell; didn't say good bye, thanks for coming in, or have a good day. The service really ruined what I thought to be a good meal.

Our breakfast group meets once a month here and has been doing so for a couple of years. We really enjoy the service and the ambiance as well as the waitresses and servers who have always been very friendly and go out of their way to accommodate us.

I had eaten lunch at Tavern 17 many times, but this was the first time there for dinner. Our party of 4 were the only diners at a table; there was a couple seated outdoors and many people at the bar, so it was a bit strange to have the whole place to ourselves. The menu is varied enough that our vegan diner found an appetizer and an entree that pleased her (crab soup and a cheese-free pizza). The short rib quesadillas were delicious, and the sweet potato fries were some of the best I've ever had. My husband loved his steak, saying it was melt-in-the-mouth good. Service was extremely efficient and very friendly. The wine list is decent. The re-designed Warwick Hotel lobby might be a train wreck, but the hotel restaurant is a winner.

I was a little disappointed that for $28.00 you get just four average size scallops. While they were good they were not worth $7.00 a piece.

I went for brunch on Sunday and was a little disappointed... The food was okay and the service was fine. I would give it another try but was not impressed by the experience.

This restaurant was not a top choice for a graduation dinner with my family. But, just two days prior to my college graduation I was put on a liquid diet. I needed to find a restaurant that had soup I would like, and food my family would enjoy, that would also be a nice place to celebrate. Tavern 17 ended up being PERFECT! The food was incredible! It's a very nice little place, very cozy and comfortable. The only downside is for a not so busy night, the service was a tad slow. Overall - great! I will definitely be back!
