Porsche Experience Center’s Restaurant 917
Excellent experience all around and very attentive service
Food was mediocre, but ambiance was great! Great service, hostess and server both extremely helpful! I would up the game on food selection, and it would bring more customers that would in turn want to drive like I do now! Thanks!
My husband I came for dinner in Feb 2018 and it was an incredible experience. I brought two of my friends for their birthdays and was disappointed that they sat us right behind the bar where some great kids were at the bar trying to have a good time... the problem was it was loud and distracting . So my lesson learned ... ask to not sit by the bar. They were also setting up for an event while we were still having our meal..
Great place for lunch. Lot of fun watching the cars go around the track while dining. Service was incredible - we had Mary as our server.
Despite having a reservation, we were turned away upon arrival. Per security at the door, there was a private event. 30 minutes later, while dining elsewhere, the manager called to inquire about our whereabouts. I advised him that we were turned away. He apologized, said there was a mix-up and said he’d follow up and will make it up to me/us. I called a few days later and spoke to the hostess who said she’d pass along to the manager. It’s been over a week and I still have not heard from the manager. This was such a disappointing experience from such a nice restaurant.
Our dining experience was phenomenal because of the vegitarian options the food was exceptional. I ordered the beet salad, winter vegetables, and the flourless chocolate cake with soy ice cream. My date ordered the scallops and stated that, "they were the best she ever had"! I will definitely recommend this restaurant to my family and friends. Thank you for the warm professional service and exquisite food.
Enjoyable fine dining and comfortable ambiance while overlooking the track where guests can experience the power and responsiveness of various Porsche models.
Very good restaurant overlooking the Porsche Experience center track. We were able to watch some of the cars doing their maneuvers.
This was my second lunch at the Porche Experience Center Restaurant and excellent again. Both food and service were ourstanding. We were there for a business lunch and a great environment to have a conversation as long as you can resist keeping your eyes off the track and the skid pad. Given lack of great restaurants off the 405 between north Long Beach and South Bay, this one is a hidden gem.
Great attention to detail. Took my 14 yr old son for a mother-son outing
A most unusual experience - Porsches coupled with great food. Expensive but worth it
Great food while watching Porsche's go around the track, what's not to like :)
Enjoyed our company holiday party. Great service. I would like more options on the desert menu but overall five star experience.
Always great. Thank you.
917 is a unique dining experience partly because of its location - a Porsche museum of sorts - beautiful showroom featuring some of their sports cars. The restaurant is above the showroom. The ambiance, in my opinion, could have been a little warmer, but the food was excellent along with the service. They ran out of a featured item at 7 p.m. which was odd given the restaurant was not full, but everything we had was fabulous. Definitely pricey, but worth it for a special night out.
The food is the best in LA and the service is beyond perfection!
Great food and service. Not as good as driving a turbo but a great experience.
Wonderful place to dine. Service and food are great plus you get to watch the Porsche drivers on the track. On your way to the Restaurant you get to see so many Porsche cars.
From the moment you walk in the building you knew this place was going to be special. It started with the receptionist to the building, she was very pleasant and helpful. My reservations was 11:15 am. I had a window seat just overlooking the track. My waiter Ben, was probably the best waiter I've ever had. In fact, from the host/hostess all the way to guys who brought the food/dessert out to my table, all these guys were on top of their game. The service I got here was probably the best...attentive, knowledgeable, friendly, classy, etc.
First they bring out a steam towel to your table. Next, they brought out Pretzel bun with Porsche shape butter with sea saIt on the side. First I ordered Evian water. I had the Mule drink(2)...excellent. For lunch I had the flat iron steak...delicious. And for dessert I had the Almond cake...perfect. The portions are just right. When the I bill came, it was actually less than what I had expected. Probably because the food, the service and the atmosphere of the place just makes it feel like it's worth more expensive.
The location of this place is inside the Porsche Experience Center on the 2nd floor. When you walk in the building you have to check in with the receptionist. The lobby has several Porsche on display. They also have a nice Porsche boutique on location. I will definitely be returning every chance I get.
Always takes guests here for an unforgettable dining. Food is great, service is awesome. They took out some items from the menu. Hope they add more. Obviously missing are shrimp dishes. My family is shrimp and seafood lover.
Wonderful ambience, a fairly quiet environment (which I like), especially if you like motors and wheels. The drinks and the menu are great, imaginative, balanced and tasty. I'll be back.
Absolutely love the 917! I, as well as my co-workers, have brought numerous clients here . Amazing food and great service! The 917 never fails.
This is our 3rd time in this restaurant, twice for lunch and once for dinner, and for sure it won’t be the last. 100% recommended, it has everything: great food and wine selection, great service, and I love that it’s a quiet place with an elegant ambiance, one of few restaurants where you can still talk and have a nice conversation instead of being fighting with background noises such as plates, music or the conversations from all the neighboring tables. The Tomahawk steak is amazing!!!!! We love everything about this place. Lastly, all the staff throughout the entire building at all the different sections are super nice and make you feel welcomed.
Delicious food and view! Neat experience
After Disneyland, the Porsche Experience Center could be the happiest place on earth. Great food, great cars, great track...great experience! I’ll return to dine, drive cars and shop at the Porsche store.
It was a great meal. Ended buying a car I didn’t need, so it was a regular Wednesday for me.
I don't think the employees "work" because they all enjoy what they're doing.
Everyone was so courteous and helpful. We wanted for nothing.
The food was exceptional. We had the scallops and short ribs, both done to perfection.
Truly is an experience.
Wonderful location overlooking the Porsche Experience racetrack. Beautiful restaurant with excellent service and food. A must for any event or occasion.
Wow! I was amazed by the ambiance and food at the Restaurant 917! Wonderful customer service from everyone including the front desk security! There was a server there for his first night (Nestor?) on the job and he KILLED IT! He did an incredible job by being attentive and making sure we were satisfied with all of our needs. I would recommend this place to my clients and friends in the LA area. I will be back again during the day for lunch. Food was delicious and well-prepared. Thank you for the experience!
The service is always excellent and the food is great. Cocktails are on point and there is a corkage fee if you bring your own wine.
Great food and fantastic experience! We love this place
We always enjoy going to this restaurant. The last time we went was for the PECLA anniversary parade. We participated and thought that going to the restaurant for brunch was a must. And always glad we went.
Great tasting food and presentation, elegant restaurant. I’m big with restroom cleanliness and the restroom was clean and elegant with a huge fresh flower bouquet. The attention to details from food to place is superb!
One of a kind experience with a wow factor. Fine Dine Porsche Style- love it. Highly recommended!
Excellent food and service in a unique setting on the Porsche track with a great view. Will definitely be back!
Great place that many don't know about. A new regular higher end lunch place.
Had a dinner with friends to celebrate a couple birthdays. The food was very good, well thought out and expensive, but you get what you pay for. IT.WAS.WORTH.EVERY.PENNY.
Good ambiance, quiet. Next time I'll try to get there earlier to actually watch people on the track.
Expensive but nice after doing the driving experience. Burger was good other entre was very small and I never found the meat that was supposed to be in it.
Nice views of the track. Better food. Cauliflower Romanesco beautifully presented & quite tasty.
The best food and service ever! Awesome chefs, great food and presentation and awesome waiters!
