Playful. Mischievous. Unpredictable. It is the vision and latest restaurant venture from Chef Wolfgang Puck. Your experience here will vary from week to week, be that the talent behind the stove, the overall philosophy, or menu format. The evening begins at 7:30PM and guests can expect a 2 ½ - 3-hour dining experience. We can accommodate eight guests per night, and ask that our diners come to the table with an open mind, willing to explore and indulge in the new and unexpected.
Inside Wolfgang Puck's Test Kitchen we transform the expected into something entirely new.
When we think beyond quality ingredients and technical expertise, we challenge expectation and push the boundaries for the future of food.
The Test Kitchen experience presents an untraditional tasting menu for eight guests a night.
“To be truly original is to question, to experiment, to imagine.” – Wolfgang Puck

What can I expect from a night at WP Test Kitchen?
Who is cooking for me?
Each week, a rotating group of chefs from across Wolfgang's international empire collaborate to create one-of-a-kind menus. Together the group will lead you through an immersive and intimate experience. On occasion expect Wolfgang himself and/or other creative guests of honor to join in on the evening show.
Do you accomodate for allergies or dietary restrictions?
Due to the format of the experience, it is difficult for us to make modifications to our daily menus. We will do our best to accommodate any allergies as long as we are notified at least 48 hours in advance. If able, we will substitute a dish that is safe for you to consume. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your party's names and describe your allergies in as much detail as possible.
How do I make a reservation?
Tickets can be purchased online through our website. We offer one seating per night at 7:30PM and sell tickets for parties of 2 or 4, Wednesday – Friday. Saturdays are available for buyouts for parties of 8-10 guests. For inquiries on Saturday pricing and availability email email@example.com. If tickets are not available for your requested party size on a specific date, it means we are sold out.
How much does a ticket cost and what's included?
Currently, the dining experience runs $175 per person, and will change frequently. You can also opt to purchase the $85 per person beverage pairing at the time of your purchase. A deposit will be required for guests interested in a Saturday buyout. Tax and gratuity are not included in the ticket or deposit price. A 20% administrative fee and 9.25% applicable sales tax will be added automatically as you check out. The above prices do not include a la carte beverages.
What is an administrative fee?
Your experience is immensely important to us, and the beauty of a ticketing system is that you pay in advance and avoid the song and dance of paying your bill at the end of the night. Each night our entire team of chefs and front of house staff take part in the experience, thus 100% of the administrative charges are pooled to cover the hard work that goes into creating the WP Test Kitchen experience.
Where is the WP Test Kitchen located?
On the third floor in the Blue Building of the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood.
How do I get there? Do you offer valet?
If you are being dropped off: Enter the porte cochere on Melrose Avenue in front of the Pacific Design Center Blue Building. Please proceed to the Blue Building entrance at the top of the stairs, and a member of the Rogue team will be there to greet and guide you.
If you are driving: Guests are welcome to use the Pacific Design Center parking garage. Enter the Blue Building entrance on Melrose Avenue. Park in any non-reserved spot on the 4th floor of the green level, near the south elevator bank. There will be signs to help guide you to our entrance.
Please notify us via email if anyone in your party requires handicap access.
Until further notice, valet is not available.
Can I bring my own wines? How much is corkage?
Yes we welcome guests to bring their own wines. Be advised that there is a $50 per bottle corkage fee.
Do you take walk-ins?
Can I get a refund once purchased? Can I exchange my ticket for a different night?
No. Just like a sporting event, concert, or theater ticket, all sales at Rogue are final. We cannot cancel your ticket or reschedule it for another night. If you cannot come, we recommend that you transfer your tickets to someone else.
How can I transfer my ticket to another person?
In order to transfer a ticket to another person via this site, have the ticket recipient create an account. Then the transferor should login to www.exploretock.com/rogue-exp and click “Account.” Underneath a list of the tickets associated with the account is a button to “Transfer A Ticket.” Click this button, then click the ticket you wish to transfer. Enter the recipient’s email address (which must be associated with an account) and click “Transfer.” The recipient will receive a confirmation email, the tickets will be listed on their Account page, and the tickets will no longer be listed on the Account page of the transferor.
