We had a very positive experience dining here. Our waiter was attentive and quite helpful. We had appetizers that were delicious. The roasted Brussels sprouts were tasty. The crab soup had chunks of crab in it. Our entrees were lamb and filet mignon. The lamb was cooked to perfection and the filet was unbelievable. The jalapeno sweet mashed potatoes were... More

Decided to go for happy hour, before dinner. Staff at reception were not overly accommodating and we had to press to be put on a waiting list for a table. The choice of draft beers for happy hour was limited to two options and did not include our preferred choice. We had 18oz rib eye, which was ok, but not... More

Met a friend for a glass of wine. She had to wait a long time to get service as it seemed like the bartender was checking the hostess stand related to dinner reservations. Not too friendly but the wine was very good!

Love this great Tampa classic that offers great Italian and pan-asian fusion in an elegant setting. My husband always goes for one of several excellent pasta dishes, and I love their take on sea bass and grouper, and anything duck (their duck burger is not only out of the ordinary, it is superb!) They also offer plenty of small plates... More

Eight of us attended prior to a show. While pondering over appetizers, our excellent server suggested the Pu Pu Platter. It is priced at $49 and the menu says it serves 2-4. Don't let that fool you. We all had plenty and backed off so as not to ruin our meals. We had practically everything on the menu and everyone... More

Finally my husband and I got a chance to try this restaurant – we were not the slightest bit disappointed. Everything tasted fantastic – fresh, yummy, and artfully presented. As an appetizer we had the calamari, sautéed. It was a very generous portion prepared in a lighter garlic sauce. The sauce was zesty and perfect for also dipping our bread.... More

Seven 17 had it all together the night five of us came to dine. The server Joshua was knowledgeable, attentive and all the professional talents you come to expect but seldom witness. The food was well presented on the plate and delicious to taste. The featured dish Chilean sea bass was beautiful before devouring. It had grilled shrimp, squash with... More

Go here often and this visit was just average. Scallops were over cooked and tough in the risotto.Drinks were inconsistent, one way to strong, the other very weak. The bright side is the service was excellent and this has always been consistent. Will go back for one more try.
