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!

“Dining In The Dark”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2014

My Fiance and I had the opportunity to attend the Market 17 Dining In The Dark. The event was fabulous and it's worth a look online. You are seated in a completely dark dining room, the servers wear night vision goggles so they can see but you can't. It's unbelievable for those of us who take our sight for granted. The sounds and smells roar and the meal is the most delicious combinations and courses.

“Favorite Fort Lauderdale Restaurant”

Our favorite place in Fort Lauderdale, good food and service, a bit overpriced for what you get but there are not many better values in the area.

“Great food, great location, great cocktails. But...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

This is a fun place to eat! Market 17 prides itself on using locally sourced grass fed beef, pasture raised chicken, local pork, locally caught fish and local veggies. It shows in the quality and freshness of the food!
We tried the tasting menu with wine. The food was outstanding and the chef did great job of pairing the wine with each course. 6 courses, six wines. And, the chef was very willing to make changes based upon dietary restrictions. My wife is allergic to shrimp and cannot each chocolate. So- the first course ceviche was made just for her without shrimp. Dessert- (amazing by the way) heavily featured chocolate. Her dessert was prepared just for her... and wasn't just thrown together. It was equally wonderful.
Our server, Karen, was fun, attentive and very knowledgable. She was outstanding!
So, why the "But?" While the food was truly outstanding in taste, the portions, even taking into consideration that this was a six course tasting menu, were small. I would guess that each piece of meat was less than 2 oz- 2 or 3 small bites. While I don't want to walk away from a dinner feeling stuffed and uncomfortable, I do want to walk away feeling satisfied and not ready for sushi. At $125 per person, a bit larger portions would have been appropriate.

None the less, well worth a visit. The effort of using sustainable and local food translates to deliciousness on you plate!
