Lunch with friends. Had creamy spinach crepe with a small Bistro salad; hubby had tuna melt and a potato and bacon soup (think waist lines ladies!) Sat inside as slightly breezy but still had a lovely view.

Food was excellent. Wait staff was below average. Hostess was a gem. Did most of the work that would normally be done by wait staff. Very polite even when wait staff was being very rude.

This was a return visit after a lovely supper on the patio 2 years ago. The strong winds sent almost all diners inside on this visit. And it was our good luck because the pianist was playing! We overheard several say they'd returned that evening specifically for his music- lots of Cole Porter , Irving Berlin, and others of that... More

Ate here twice during our trip to Hilton Head. Food is well cooked and the service is very attentive. In addition the protion sizes are closer to what we normally expect in the UK so we wern't put off.

One couple had pork tenderloin, it was not tenderloin just strips of pork. It was very dry. The menu was not cheap very high end price wise. The mussels were excellent. The Caesar salad was nice but minuscule.

Dropped in for a beer and shared main course - spinach crepe which we hugely enjoyed - light and full of flavour. This restaurant is highly rated in TripAdvisor - unfortunately it is unlikely we can return for a full meal but from this little sample - what a shame. Would recommend.

We have recently stopped by Bistro 17 for lunch and dinner. Both meals were exceptional! Lunch outside could not have been more enjoyable. We later took our granddaughter for dinner in the restaurant and we're equally pleased. The food was delicious and the wait staff was friendly and extremely helpful. Though we didn't have a reservation for dinner, we were... More

We had a delicious dinner at Bistro 17. I had a veal chop cooked to perfection. I highly recommend dinning outside weather permitting...

We tried to eat at Bistro 17 mid week in March, 2017. We did not have a reservation (didn't think we needed one) and the place was packed inside. We were told to pick out a table out on the patio and someone would be with us shortly. Needless to say....no one was "with us shortly." It took about 15... More
