Table 17: Anyone been?

I am going to Table 17 in Riverside on Sunday night, and was just wondering if anyone's been, and if so what you thought of it.

  1. Seach and you will find reviews, it was discussed about 3 month back. I think that the general consensus was: nothing to write home about.. I've been once but not rushing back.

    1. I've been a couple of times. I think its a good neighbourhood place. Small menu, well executed if not very exciting. Service has been friendly. Sunday is free corkage so make sure you bring a nice bottle with you.

      1. I really like Table 17 - food has been great and prices are very good, especially on a Sunday with table d'hote and free corkage.

          I was soooo hoping that the meal would impress me as much as the atmosphere and decor of the place but sadly, it did not. Our waiter was great but the meal wasn't. It was okay but like foodyDudey says, I'm not rushing back either.

            I really did not enjoy my experience there. The service was absolutely horrible, I was embarassed for my guests... and the food was really VERY mediocre.

        2. This is a good, solid, neighbourhood place. Not worth a special trip, but good value if you're in the area. On Sunday and Monday they have zero charge for BYOW - but you are restricted to a smaller menu (at a low price).
          Given the dearth of places open on Sunday/Mon, I think this is a good option - but probably wouldn't make an effort on other nights.
          Service has been appropriate both times I've been.

          1. It's a good neighborhood option with well executed food and selection of drinks served in a nice room that's dressed-up but comfortable. I'd go back again.

            Not sure about the servers -- sometimes it seemed like they were trying and not getting it and another time just didn't know or care too much. I wouldn't say they were unfriendly or cool, just adequate and didn't make you want to up-tip.

              I think it really depends on what you order. I really enjoyed my short rib main but Mr Millygirl's steak frite was just plain awful. Seems the long slow cooked items would be the way to go here.
