Food was really good. We could tell the chef, Matt Lee and his team cooked it with their hearts! My friends and I appreciated it very much!
Outstanding experience from entering the building to leaving. Awesome restaurant ambience as well, and they went out of their way to make me comfortable as a single. Not to mention the food was outstanding.
Kobe burgers were delicious and the servers attended to all the details. Special mention: the Porsche-shaped butter was awesome!!!
This restaurant has everything in the car lover especially a Porsche car lover could want. Excellent service, inventive cuisine, and the chance to watch PORSCHE is run around the track. Perfect for lunch, dinner is much more a dining experience.
I had the sea scallops and they were so soft and tasted beautifully as how the plate looked. Came here with my boyfriend and his mother. They loved the food and ambiance as well. Great service. P.S. Take a picture of their butter!
Came here for lunch with coworkers who loved being able to watch the cars while eating. Would definitely come back again. Food is excellent quality, and not as expensive as one might think.
The service as well as the food as beyond expectations. It’s was also very interesting to watch the cars race around the tracks. Good overall experience!
If you are into Porsche, a great place. The presentation is wonderful as is the taste.
Excellent service and a great view of the track. The food was prepared to perfection and the staff was very accommodating. Great way to spend the evening relaxing.
Great find in an area where there isn’t much in fine dining. Great food and their service is fantastic. Love going there, the ambiance is great.
Great ambiance and our waiter and other staff were very friendly and attentive.
Great experience, wonderful food and ambiance and the wait staff is top notch!
Our waitress, Mary, was so delightful!! It was fun to sit and look out over the Porsche test track and see the cars going through the different courses! Next time we go, we'll include the Driving Experience before our dinner!
Driving at Porsche Experience
Had an amazing time celebrating a family birthday here. Our reservation was at 1:15 and the drivers started taking cars around the track again at 2 after a lunch break. Fun to sit at the restaurant and look out over the track and watch the Porsches zooming around. Service was fantastic, the food was delicious, and our waiter was attentive and kind. Highly recommend!

Our waiter was so kind and the food was amazing.
Nice view of Porsche track. Good service and food.
Great setting to view the test track and the Porsche's doing their thing! Very smart looking restaurant with interesting menu. Service by Tyler was attentive and friendly and the food was delicious. Great way to spend an afternoon.
Perfect birthday lunch for my husband! We enjoyed watching the various Porsches on the driving track!
Truly outstanding- beyond what our expectations were.
The Staff was exceptional as was the food. We will definitely be returning.
It exceeded our very high expectations!
Unbelievable service! The view is great for Porsche enthusiasts! I would definitely come back here again for another special occasion dinner---the butter was just mind blowing!
The food and service was excellent, but way too loud to carry on a conversation!
Very disappointing lunches. We both ordered the Chicken with Romaine ($20) and it looked like a side dish salad, very little chicken. I had ordered a chicken salad on a previous occasion which had whole chicken pieces, not small cubes. People at other tables had Kobe hamburgers and other dishes which would be more filling. For dessert, my friend had Goat Cheese Creme and I had the Hazelnut Praline, both $10. So-so.
Worse part was that there were no cars on the "track" for most of the meal. Going for lunch on Friday is not recommended therefore.
Great experience to watch the Porsche's run the tracks
Quite enjoyed the food, service, and cars. Attentive service. Leisurely pace.
trackside dining, epic cars. a car lovers dream. the food is excellent, check out the daily special for authentic german dishes
First you get to walk through the collection of antique cars! Then go upstairs to the restaurant. Menu is creative and inventive! What if the Porsches drive around the track is a blast!
Strawberry rhubarb dessert was tasty!
We've had two meals here...one lunch and one dinner. Both were a disappointment on most levels. The restaurant location is unique and very interesting. The concept is just not enough to carry off the mediocre meals and very slow service. Also, overpriced.
Love having lunch here. Great food, great service and an awesome view of some really nice cars!
I love the food, and watching Porsche going around the track
Food and service were outstanding! A true dining gem in an unexpected location. Dishes were impeccably conceived, perfectly executed, and beautifully plated. Food quality was better than many similarly-priced restaurants we have eaten at in Southern California as well as in other states. Cocktails were wonderful -- not too syrupy as they often are elsewhere. Some of the desserts were really creative and uniquely wonderful!
Venue had a comfortable noise level--you can feel comfortable laughing and having fun, but also can have a good conversation and hear everyone at the table! We scheduled this meal as a family reward after a few weeks of dealing with stressful situations and completing some home projects. Our 11 yo daughter thoroughly enjoyed her food and the venue as well.
The 917 at the Experience Center is a destination restaurant. From the race cars in the showroom and on the track, to the shop with Porsche labeled items and racing gear on the first level, to the beautiful restaurant on the second level overlooking the track, this is my go-to restaurant for special occasions and out-of-town visitors. On this occasion, I was with a business acquaintance from the East Coast. The hostess and wait staff greeted me like a respected old friend. We enjoyed viewing the track from the second level overlook until the cars were called in at 5:30. I had asked for a window table, although none of the tables are really far from the high windows. We decided to try the Tasting menu. Those with larger appetites might prefer choosing from the regular menu. We enjoyed trying a variety of dishes and it was enough for us, especially because we had a lot of their fresh bread. I've always noticed how good bread is an indicator of a good restaurant and the bread was delicious. The dishes were each beautifully presented. The hamachi appetizer, the crab primi, and the waygu steak were favorites. We also tried the creative cocktails. The ones we chose, they apparently change them during the year, were perfectly blended and were obviously prepared with high quality liquors and ingredients. The last time visiting the Center, I tried the visual simulation race experience before dinner. (Check closing hours.) I was glad I had brought my guest and she is planning to return to the Center when she returns to LA.
Amazing food and ambiance it was a birthday lunch. Our servers were attentive and very professional and knowledgeable about the cars. I drive a Porsche so home for me.
My dad and I are big car fans and we had never been to the Porsche experience Center. Our good friend told us about it as he has many Porsches. It was for my birthday and my dad and I had a terrific time! Everyone at the Porsche family there was amazing and very, very friendly. They made us feel right at home. Thank you to James!
My family and I felt well taken care of by the attentive staff. The food was fantastic with an excellent selection of beverages.
Extremely slow service. Salmon looked more like an appetizer than main course
Great attention to details & follow up calls.
when I made the reservation at pentacle that it's for a birthday celebration, they called to get all the names of the birthday girls.
