    Fantastic in every respect Food, Ambience and Bar equal must do and for our return visits to Hawaii is PF's is always a repeat and revisited at least 4 - 5 times. Have visited Hawaii from NZ several times and PF's is a must do ..... In fact this last visit I commented it is a reason for coming back to Hawaii as we just hang out for the food and repeating the experience which is so good it has never changed between visits ..... Just loooooooove it. PF's equals a "must do" for any visit Hawaii.

    First time use of opentable for making a reservation. It worked just fine. They had the reservation and we were treated to upstairs dining accommodations. Food was okay but not special, typical chain food restaurant. Had the crispy honey chicken and kimchi rice with eggs.

    There was really nothing wrong with anything about PF Chang's Waikiki. The food, service, location all were very good. Since we dined outdoors, we did have to deal with pigeons walking around on the ground getting scraps, but that was ok. It was a bit pricey, especially for a chain, but it was worth it.

    We were there for two hours (only two people and not even an appetizer) My husbands entree was messed up after going over it thoroughly. Never offered dessert so had to wait for them to fix the check. Waitress never came around, never got a refill on my drinks. Not sure if she was busy or just didn't care. We come very often and normally have excellent service. Very disappointed this time.

    I've eaten here before & it was great. What happened?! I ate here for lunch. It was not busy at all. We were seated after the hostess finished on the phone. It was about 5 mins before we were waited on. We ordered our drinks & dumplings. We received our drinks right away. Our dumplings took 20min to arrive. They were barely warm. People beside us sat down, ordered, got their food, and almost finished before we got our dumplings. The waitress didn't come around much. She was nice when she was around tho. The main courses were ok, but what happened to the rice? Did you switch to Uncle Bens? The rice was dry and didn't stick. We did not eat it. Your lunch menu is same price as dinner menu. I expect the same quality of service and food.

    I ordered a strawberry lemonade it came in a plastic tumbler like a momentum glass with the hard plastic straws you see everywhere, I asked the waiter if I get to keep it since I couldn't imagine they would recirculate that kinda plastic straw etc, he said yes it comes with your drink, then I get my bill and they charged me 9.00 for my lemonade and an extra 5.50 for the cup they expected me to pay 14.50 for a glass of lemonade!!! We waited forever for our food n refills, waikiki hawaii!! Don't GO!

    Maybe it was a poor choice, but I did not like the orange shrimp. I was not expecting the breaking to be so soggy. Otherwise the food was good. Had dumplings, excellent. The waiter was less than interested, I think that's because we weren't ordering alcohol. Low total bill=low tip, in his mind. The hostess was very nice and friendly.

  • Disappointing
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 7/9/2014
    We've visited PF Chang on the mainland and it's always been fantastic, however this particular location did not live up to the quality of food that we've come to expect. All the dishes were bland and overpriced. We paid $80 for 2 appetizers, 2 main dishes, and 3 non alcoholic drinks. We sent one dish back because they brought us chicken instead of pork, but declined to order a replacement because the food was so bland. The Singapore spicy noodles were overcooked, no flavor, not sure what vegetables were used as they were all the same color. The sweet and sour pork tasted like something you would expect at fast food outlet. Very disappointing.

    Friends (fellow Aussies) recommended P.F. Changs in Waikiki to us and we were delighted with our experience. We loved the dumpling and prawn appetizers (we got 1 free from a voucher in one of the tourist pamphlets ... can't recall name of it). Our mains were even more delicious, definitely recommend the Mahi Mahi and the asparagus side. Our waitress was very friendly and provided excellent service. I would definitely go back.

    This location is great, right in the heart of Waikiki in the Royal Hawaiin Center overlooking the Waikiki Beach Walk. Shop, Eat, Drink & people watch! Service was excellent and the food was too. Highly recommend this location if you enjoy PF Changs restaurants. If you haven't tried one, you should. The Mongolian beef is a favorite, as is the crispy honey shrimp and the hot and sour soup. Start off with the lettuce wraps appetizer too.

    we were not sure about this place so we went during happy hour. The chicken lettuce wraps tasted like Taco Bell. My son ordered the honey chicken for 19.99 and it was so saucy he did not eat even half of it. The crab wontons were the only thing we ordered that was good. The dynamite shrimp again was too saucy. Y0u do not need to smoother your food to make it taste good. The waitress never came to fill up our water glasses. Just not a nice evening and I feel that I wasted my money. A glorified Panda Express for sure.

    Made a last minute reservation to go down to eat right before fireworks show. Table was ready to go and got to sit outside. We ordered appetizers. Dumplings were very good, but spring rolls were not warm enough but still tasty. We couldn't log on to our Yelp app to sign in for a free appetizer, but the manager came over and gave it to us free anyway. Great service!! We order 4 main courses, which were very good and our server was very attentive. Overall a great place to eat with friends.

    I had dinner with my wife on a Sunday night. The food and service was great. Unfortunately, I wasn't feeling very well and we couldn't finish our entrees. The manageress was obviously concerned that we hadn't finished our food and took the time to check that everything was ok. When I advised that I hadn't been well that day she also asked if there was anything she could do to help. For me this is excellent customer service and hopefully we will have a chance to return to P F Chang's in the future to enjoy their great food to the full - Thanks P F Chang's

    We decided last minute to go to P.F. Chang's. We had about thirty minutes to get to the restaurant, and had got there right at 7:00p.m. Even thought there lots of people around the front desk, they got us our table right away. The restaurant is in a great location, with busy foot traffic, which is good for people watching. The food was great. Loved the Wok-Charred Beef.

    We have frequented many PF Chang's & were excited to find a location on our dream vacation to Honolulu. Although the location was nice, the experience was a huge let down from the sangria to the service. We left very disappointed. Every other location we have been to has been wonderfully consistent. Waikiki stands out in a negative way for sure.
