"We always get the private room, and service is excellent."
"The Pork Lollipop is awesome, although a little pricey, & is worth every cent."

Sat at the bar on a Thursday night. A trendy noisy but pleasant atmosphere. The bartender, Christie, was excellent & did not treat me like a tourist. The Pork Lollipop is awesome, although a little pricey, & is worth every cent.

Wow, we were so happy to find 717 South! We were in Tampa for the weekend (from Palm Beach County), which included our Anniversary, and I used my phone to find a local restaurant that wasn't one of the high-end chains. We had a wonderful experience, a booth toward the back, quiet and almost private, our server, Michael, was terrific, and our meals were perfect. This restaurant offers great value for the meals, drinks and service. Both thumbs up! They do accept reservations even though we didn't have one (we went fairly early) and there's even parking.

I've been here a couple of times with co-workers -- it seems to be my boss' go-to place for a team lunch. We always get the private room, and service is excellent. The food is good, the selection is good, the prices are high. (like most places in South Tampa, I guess.) The setting is more formal than my taste, and I can find food as good for less money. If I were paying the check I wouldn't come here.

Went there by accident when strolling around SoHo. Atmosphere was inviting, staff friendly, crowd hip. But: food was way below the acceptable level for the price and ambition. Actually we were suffering from indigestion afterwards.

We had dinner here early on Saturday night. The food and service was impeccable. Our server picked my dinner for the night and I'm certain I couldn't done better myself.

Trendy environment and elegant presentation, but that's all. This place is a paper tiger. Overpriced food made with mediocre ingredients. You can find a much better meal for the price.

Like many of the other reviews I found myself feeling a bit disappointed with my expectations. The menu reads great. The ambiance, location, and wait staff was more the acceptable, but the chef skills and recipes were definitely lacking. It was palatable but far from great and boarderline good. Just acceptable. Really disappointing. I had really hoped for better.

Came in to use our Groupon. We were greeted right away and seated immediately (we had a reservation, but it wasn't too crowded). The service was friendly, and our waiter was patient as we interrogated him on the best menu choices. My fiance ordered the Chilean sea bass, and I ordered the salmon. We received very generous portions, and both meals were incredible. The sea bass melted in our mouths, and the salmon was so flavorful. Intimate atmosphere with interesting art and decor. Much roomier on the inside than it looks from the outside. Also has a full bar area if you're just looking for drinks and small plates. Great date night spot, and there is also a sectioned-off room for business meetings and private parties. Will be back in the future to try more of the menu.
