Tables at fine-dining restaurants are known for their fancy white-linen outfits, unlike tables in home kitchens, which are free to go nude in the privacy of their own homes. Dress up for a nice meal with this Groupon.

A series of sensual portraits by Tamara de Lempicka graces the walls of 717 South’s dining room. The flashy art-deco aesthetic extends to the whole dining room, where burnt orange and blue walls glow in contrast to angular black stripes. 717 South’s plates of upscale fusion fare are no less elegantly appointed: chefs - including recent Tampa Best Chef Competition's "Chef of the Year" winner Robert Masson - drizzle fresh seafood, aged Hereford steaks, and farm-fresh chicken with sauces, herbs, and salsas inspired by Asian, American, and Italian flavors. In addition to the dining room, guests can perch on the outdoor patio, which is secluded enough for sharing romantic dinners or tenderly whispering nutrition facts.

“The hostess seemed to be a little out of it. There were a lot of servers using the computer up there, chatting and didn't acknowledge us, just walked on by. (first door impressions can be a make or break experience) The bartender also seemed in a hurry for our order which was strange since the bar was not busy. I had made a reservation but no tables were ready so we sat at the bar for a drink. The server was ok...she also seemed a little rushed and pushy. We weren't sure if it was because we were sitting down to eat at 8:30 and they were tired or what but usually we have good service. However overall the food was fabulous and that is the reason I go to 717!”
