Another lovely evening at Eat 17. The food was delicious I had a rare bavette and my friend the sea bass. Followed by an excellent cheeseboard. The wine was good as were the cocktails. Would highly recommend. Have been so many times - the butter milk chicken is scrumptious. Wish you still did Steak Tartare. Love the wine list and that Tokaj is on this.

Great service we had from Rae - she was very patience with our group while we decided and asked a load of questions (we could also be confusing at times). Very pleasant night - my husband and I normally go there on special occasions such as birthdays.

Had much better meals at Eat 17. Waiter didnt know soup of the day and then presented us with a specials menu. We ordered a fish dish from that menu and 10 minutes later were told we shouldnt have ever had that menu and it wasnt possible to do. We asked for peas as a side for one of the children in our party and were told this was impossible and in fact peas were in my starter (so I imagine it would have been). Took a long time to get the bill and pay, it felt as if the staff were maybe a bit overwhelmed and not really on top of things. However the food itself was very nice as usual - hopefully a one off.

My mum and I had a lovely time at Eat17 - the service was excellent! The food was very good (maybe a bit too much butter sauce served with gnocchi). I will be coming back!

We went for lunch and both had the buttermilk chicken burger, which was delicious. Service was excellent and would definitely go again.

The food was amazing. We had a sumptuous range of starters and wonderful main courses we were only sad we had no room for puddings. The cocktails and mocktails were brilliant and the staff were very happy to change their ingredients to suit us. Also really good quality wine was available by the glass. The steaks were superb and the duck pappardelle wonderful. The service was amazing from the start and we had a great spacious table. My family visiting from California were really impressed with the high standard of food and service compared to other similar priced restaurants they have visited here and in the rest of Europe or the US. The only fault they found was with the local parking restrictions.

Incredibly good food, really great ambience within the restaurant and the service was delightful. I was served by a waitress who was working her first ever shift for Eat17 and she was friendly, attentive and made my birthday super special! Would definitely recommend!

We're regular customers at Eat17 and felt quite disappointed after our meal last night. The service was incredibly slow - we had to leave without having dessert because our starters and main had taken so long to arrive and then we sat with our dessert menu for ages without anyone coming to take an order. After leaving, we waited for our taxi under the awning at the front of the restaurant and a waitress who was clearing the tables, made it clear we were in her way by saying 'excuse me' every single time she walked past us in an unfriendly tone despite there being space for us to stand there and her to walk past. Unfortunately, this isn't the first time the service has been disappointing. I visited with a group of friends (all with buggies and babies) recently (on a Monday at midday). Our numbers had reduced from the original booking and I had tried to call 6 or 7 times to let the restaurant know but no one answered. When we arrived a waitress (I believe she might be the manager or owner) was very rude to me and essentially told me off for not warning them our numbers had changed. When I tried to explain, she cut me off and said the same thing again. My friends, who had never been to the restaurant before were really unimpressed with all of this. It's a shame because the food is really lovely, but the service is very hit and miss.

We went in a Wednesday evening for my birthday. It was quite quiet but still had a good atmosphere. We live in the area and have seen how busy I can get on the weekends! Excellent food, wine was lovely; just a really nice evening.

The food was fantastic and the restaurant is very nice with a good atmosphere. Our waitress was really pleasant but the kitchen seemed too busy as we didn’t get our starters until 40 minutes after arriving and the main course wasn’t served till more than an hour after arrival. We would have liked coffee and dessert but didn’t have time. As a table for two I did feel a little like our order was held up by the kitchen being busy with big tables.
