It is a shame that the menu and the food is so mediocre. For the past 18 months same drab tastless menu. Nothing exciting, The only tasty treat is the Kobe burger. So much potential such a waste. For heavens sake get a new chef !

The view over the PC is great! The food and service were very good. Portions of the spaghetti with clams was tiny, but very tasty. I would definitely recommend eating here, just ask about portion size of your entrée.

Food, as always, was excellent. Service, as always, was outstanding. Frequently this restaurant offers luncheon specials and it didn't have this option, which I missed. Pricing is a little high, but the quality warrants it.

Felt like we rented the entire restaurant when we arrived around 5:15pm. It got busier after 6:30pm. I liked coming little earlier to see the cars on the track. What a beautiful place to meet for dinner. I really enjoyed it very much!

After participating in the Porsche driving experience my friends and I had lunch afterwards at restaurant 917. Food, service, and the view of the driving tracks were all superb.

Even if you’re not participating in the driving experience, Restaurant 917 is worth a visit. This is my second visit to the restaurant and it was just as good as the first. We had we had 5 in and our party so we decided to do family-style dining and ordered six different items to share. The burger was my favorite, by far one of the best I’ve had.

Valentines Day dinner. Everything was great. My only complaint is that the octopus was a bit chewy but other than that everything else was great. The small details of the butter, chocolate and Ice in the drinks are exceptional my boyfriend really enjoyed it as he’s a Porsche lover.

Booked this for my partnering I for Valentine’s Day. He is a huge Porsche fan and we have one as well. I booked the reservation for 1:30pm because the restaurant overlooks the track that they test the cars on. I asked in the booking for a table overlooking the track and they delivered. The restaurant is upstairs of the Porsche experience center so you walk in the main doors and at reception you are given a visitors pass and from there you have the entire building to explore. Upon arrival at the front of the restaurant the greeting was great and seated immediately to our perfect table. We we’re greeted with pretzel bread and a black slate stone with Porsche shaped butter and sea salt. Ben our server was amazing and recommended certain items and cocktails on the menu. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was incredible. It was the whole experience that I had only hoped for. The only thing I would say was the lighting inside is bright due to the windows so I wore my sunglasses (due to sensitivity) but that’s the only negative and I wouldn’t even go as far to say that’s a negative. I highly recommend 100%

Fantastic place for dinner or lunch. We went for lunch during the week and had a great experience. Both the food, service and ambiance was great. The food was a little pricey but that would be my only 'complaint'. Definitely will go back but I'll try dinner next time.

My soup was luke warm and my spaghetti was really clam fettachini. The portion was way to small for the price. My bowel arrived looking quite empty. The ambiance is great since I am a car guy. Watching Porsches slide around the track is awesome and the entire place is super sano.

We had another wonderful experience dining on 2/9/2019. I ordered the tasting menu. Omg
I had a lovely tuna sashimi on home made rice crackers that was perfectly seasoned and fresh. The presentation was on rocks with dried ice. The second course was a prawn that was good not exceptional in a yummy curry sauce with some butter. Beautiful presentation and good. The finale course was equally outstanding as the first course and I cleaned my plate wow
I was provided surf and turf. The surf was one large shrimp with the sauce under it. Very good and tasty. The turf was a wagyu piece of sirloin. I never order meat and I consider myself a vegetarian who eats a lot of fish. This is my first experience with ordering meat. Can I say it was Devine and I ate every last drop. So much food that I fasted on Sunday until dinner
My husband ordered the appetizer grilled octopus - delicious and the entree pork loin wrapped in bacon with more pork. Amazing

Too full to eat dessert.

Cannot wait to return

I think we’ve had dinner 3-4 times and always a special experience

I booked my husband a surprise Porsche Experience behind the wheel of a 911 Carrera and lunch afterwards for his birthday. He loved it! However, service at the restaurant was a bit disappointing - we didn’t get seated for close to an hour after our reservation time and while we waited we sat at the bar. The female bartender repeatedly talked to us, then walked away without serving us fully. I finally got a glass of champagne, but my husband did not get his drink until I asked the male bartender to get it for us. She was chatting with guests and wandering around during that time. We were finally seated and service got a lot better, although it took awhile to get refills of water and it was quite hot inside the entire building. But, the food was delicious and it was a beautiful restaurant. Our waiter Ben was very nice and gave my husband a little birthday brownie bite and some tasting chips for Absolution Brewery, their beer partner. But we will go back someday and try again.
