Description: Market 17 is proud to be serving delicious, creative dishes that are literally from the farm right to the tables of our diners. We call this "wine country cuisine" because the emphasis is on fresh, clean food from top purveyors along with an abundant wine list. For the more adventurous diner, Market 17 offers 'dining in the dark'. It is our chefs table in a private room that allows a new way to experience food. Once your sight is turned off, all the other senses are heightened. It's a fun and unique experience to enjoy our food. (Due to limited seating, reservations for dining in the dark can be requested via open table notes but are not guaranteed. Please call 954.835.5507 to confirm dining in the dark reservation requests.) Our menu will change daily and we'll always offer amazing tasting menus for you to sample what the chef has created. Come and experience for yourself what all the buzz is about!

Excellent "Market fresh" vegetables. This is a real find in strip malled Fort Lauderdale, a real restaurant that cares about what it serves rather than return on investment. A definite must-try!

There are a number of positives about this restaurant. I like the farm to table concept (the menu lists the farms/sources). When we were seated, we were offered black napkins (we both had on black slacks) which is always a nice touch (so you don't end up with white fuzz all over your black pants!). We couldn't decide between a... More

You know you have a real friend when he recommends a place like this for an anniversary dinner. Great location near the intracoastal and the beach (2 minute drive), the place is dimly lit and decorated with great modern taste. Impressive wine list although I'm no expert but there seemed to be something for every taste and from every region.... More

We chose this place for our last meal because of the farm to table concept and the fact that Cobia was featured on the menu that night. The front desk girl could not have been less inviting when we arrived. She basically asked us why we were here? To dine I guess.... Our server was great and the Cobia by... More

Although we are locals, we had not visited Market 17 until this past week. Friends of our had heard about Market 17 from a yacht chef who was in town. He highly recommended the food and atmosphere. Market 17 is located near Port Everglades, so very convenient for cruise passengers, and private yacht owners and crew who would like a... More

The restaurant is hidden on the bottom floor of an office building – was surprised how nice the interior looked – there was no one at the host stand when we arrived – someone came up and said “will be right back” 2 minutes later some else came up and said are you being helped – we said no, and...

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday this past week, and both of us had never dined at Market 17 before. I'm so glad that this was available! My boyfriend absolutely loved it, and it was an amazing experience. They lead you into a small, dark room, and begin talking about the dinner before they turn the lights off.... More

The start of our recent dining experience here should have been a forewarning. This restaurant touts that its menu changes daily to take advantage of what is available from its many local suppliers, yet one of the appetizers that we ordered was sold out at 7:05 PM, although the dining room was 75% empty. How can this be? Two of... More
