Service was maybe the worst that I have ever seen. The manager should be fired. He/she are not paying much attention to anything. I am not sure what was worse the kitchen or the waiter.

The kitchen was slow. The waiter was slow. They messed up orders. The steak was actually fine and all of the help was friendly.

For an extra fee, you can get premier seating by the window facing out to the field along the third base line. Such an amazing view for the game and overall wonderful experience. Would definitely be doing again next time at the stadium.

If you make a reservation using OpenTable it is very convenient and very helpful at check-in. The staff at the host/hostess stand do an amazing job of honoring requests for seating. They are super busy but always greet my family and me with a smile. The food choices are great, basic ballpark food, sweets, mini sandwiches, pastrami carving, cheese and meats area, Sunday omelette/waffle station. Hotdogs, pizza, meatballs, Ceasar salad, baked Mac and cheese and many more. My daughter was asking for bacon, so I suppose that’s the only thing missing in her experience. Lol. Our servers in the tiers section never disappoint and actually go above and beyond! Always make us feel comfortable.
I’ve enjoyed eating here with kids, for a date night, for girls day at the park. We will return!

A fun experience. Watching batting practice during dinner was a plus. We had the Market Table, food was OK, not great. Expensive for what they offered, especially with the $10 extra charge for window seating. Wine and beer price was reasonable.

Everything was great. Quiet day so we weren't rushed sat for an hour and a half. Only issue was that soft drinks were not included in price and we only found out when the bill came. Waiter brought loads of water but didn't ask if we wanted any other drinks. All in all price was well worth it and we will definitely go back.

Unfortunately this is way overpriced for the type of food that they serve. I am in the restaurant industry and I have to say that the food is adequate at best and very overpriced. Pizza hotdogs burgers macaroni and cheese etc. are all very filling and there is only so much that you can eat. Much better value in the ballpark all things considered. I definitely would not go back to that specific restaurant! Citi field is fantastic as well as the entire staff however this restaurant does not hit the mark. Sorry but save your money!

Lunch menu is so much better than dinner menu, and dinner is 10.00 more. Much more offered during afternoon games. Don't know if I would do the night games there any longer.

The Porsche Grille is a great option for folks attending a Mets game to have a decent sit-down meal in lieu of the many types of sandwiches offered around Citi Field. The salad bar / marketplace set up has a wide range of choices while the dinner menu has safe, dependable options. The main problem with the Grille is that it's very expensive for stadium dining.

We went for lunch prior to a game. Only the buffet Market Table is available during lunch. Entrees, which include the Market Table, are available for dinner. Overall, a very satisfying experience. I recommend and will go again, hopefully for dinner.

Started off with drinks. They were reasonably priced and contained a good dose of alcohol. The Market Table was also reasonably priced in light of the quality of food. I think that there could have been more of a selection, particularly of hot dishes, but what was offered was very good. The John's Pizza, Mac and Cheese and meatballs were excellent, as was everything on the salad station and bread bar. On the other hand, the hot dogs were terrible and should be avoided. The deserts were okay but quite ordinary.

Service is very attentive. Our very nice waitress anticipated every need and responded quickly. She deserves an A++.

My 20 year old daughter and I had won a pair of Mets tix from the Daily News which allowed us entry into the Porsche Grill. The reservation was handled perfectly, they upgraded us to a nicer table with a view of LaGuardia airport/Flushing Bay which included the sunset over Manhattan. The food was excellent and the choices were outstanding. We both came with an appetite and still could not try everything from the market table which was freshly made. My daughter got the pasta with a creamy mushroom sauce which was fantastic while I just stuck with the all you can eat choices-all of which were fine. Suggestion: You may want to split an entrée as the market table will fill you up. We went before the game started so we saw no need to pay the extra $ 10 each for a field view but if the weather is bad or too hot/cold-this would definitely be a good option but this seating, unlike the overall restaurant, is limited so you would have to watch the weather and reserve in advance. I gladly gave the $ 20 I saved by not going with the terrace/field view as a tip to our excellent server Barbara who was not only very attentive (water always filled, plates cleared away) but was very kind in always asking us if everything was OK and patient in explaining how everything worked. This was a daddy daughter end of summer splurge before she went back to school and to top it all-the Mets actually won! Will love to take my whole family next year but this is a splurge which will cost you about $ 50 per person, not including drinks, tip or added entrée, but the food, view and service can not be beat. Enjoy!

I have always had a good experience until this time. My daughter was going away to college and this was her last Mets game this year. She wanted to eat at the PORSCHE Grill again. We both ordered the steak but hers came raw. The waiter Paul was great as usual and apologized and took the steak away. It took over 40 minutes for my daughter to finally get her steak. What a poor experience.
Again our waiter Paul was great but it would have been nice if a manager would have offered a discount or something for the long wait.

The Grill does not make it easy to confirm seats on the patio, but once you get reservations there it's fantastic. We were there for the second year for a family reunion! Our waitress was the best... Michele D.

Dining experience was poor. My wife and I were told that we needed to complete our meal in a hour and 15 minutes because they were busy tonight and needed the table for customers coming in at 6:45pm. During the meal, my wife and myself needed to send back the pork chop entrees to be cooked some more which took some time. This was done gracefully by the server.
Unfortunately, my wife who is wheelchair bound and has a dx of Stage III Cancer needs to eat slowly. At 6:55pm, two employees abruptly and rudely removed 2 chairs not being used from the table. The server apologized for the rudeness of the 2 young women. I jokeingly said to the server" they will be lifting and taking the table away next". The server asked if we were interested in coffee and dessert but we refused. I paid the bill which came to $200.00 ( which included the tip to the server). We left the restaurant to watch the Mets lose again to the Yankees.

The food is ok, the service is good but really, it's all about the experience and the view. Took my mother in law's for her first mets game at Citi (she's been a fan since '69) and the "upgrade" to the tiers was worth the extra $10 a head.

All in $80pp after tax and tip is definitely too much but for a special occasion it was worth it.

Always come to Porsche club. Many reasons.
I've come with friends and for special occasions. I've come with my family on a regular basis. We always find something to eat and it's yummy. I've been for brunch and for dinner. The wait staff has always gone above and beyond, especially Raul. The host/hostess staff is always smiling and willing to accommodate. They have offered tiers seating if available and have done their best to accommodate any special requests regarding seating (we have kids-keep us away from main traffic, we are celebrating and would love to be seated by the glass). Was even super nice when we celebrated a double birthday.
