Ask for Fabien to serve you. You won’t get better service. He is wonderful with suggestions so please ask for his opinion.

My husband and I came here to have a dinner date and it was surprisingly very empty. We had just driven from the San Diego location which had over an hour wait so the 30 minute drive, which was already on our way back home, was well worth it. We were seated immediately and ordered almost right away. Our appetizer, the featured chicken lettuce wraps, came out in a timely manner and the entrees followed closely after. I must say, the portions were decently sized although the rice was dry, but not to a point where it was unenjoyable. My only other comment on the food would be my husband ordered the “surf and turf” and when it came out, there was merely 1 tiny piece of lobster, very little filet mignon, and primarily potatoes and asparagus with a generous amount of the lightly fried shrimp. The food that was on the plate though was fantastic. The sesame chicken was very similar to an orange chicken plate but was enough for the two of us to be full off of. Our server was professional and very diligent on refilling our teas and waters and was not over chatty, he wasn’t very busy which definitely attributed to the great service. I would definitely recommend and will more than likely be back for another date night in the future.

We ordered Kungpao chicken and it came with burnt chicken. No apologies just took it back and brought us a new plate. Food was ok but lacked in the usual flavor. Service was just ok. Wish we had gone somewhere else.

Chinese food is one of my favorite cuisines. I like PF Chang's because their dishes have a different bent on the traditional fare. I find most of the dishes are also very healthy and flavorful. For a chain it is very good.

Their signature Lettuce Wraps have changed for the worse. Now you get Romaine leaves and tiny pieces of Lettuce. Just try to wrap a small piece of Romaine around that delicious filling - can’t be done. No more Wraps for us!!!

Thomas was an excellent server. He was attentive to our needs. The amount of food is plenty and a true family style order. Hard when just two people who don’t want to share but the prices are so good, you each get two meals out of an order. My only complaint is I think it is inappropriate to vacuum (even a Dyson) around people eating. It was not as if there was a spill or mess. Nothing is worse than trying to talk, let alone eat, when someone is vacuuming around you....like you made a mess.)

Great waiter and always great food. We also ordered a pitcher of margaritas. It was not big but they were excellent. It was happy hour, so it was quite reasonable.

We decided to go out for dinner. We arrived about 10 minutes early for our reservation. Service was mediocre. Our server didn’t smile much. She only came back to check on us a couple times. Didn’t ask if we wanted drink refills. Food came out quick which the only reason for 3 stars but it was average.

Restaurant was not cleaned properly. We had to ask to have the surrounding tables bussed and the floors cleaned
It was unappetizing to look at. They eventually cleaned up.

Unfortunately this will be the last time we dine at PFChangs. The food has not been good for awhile now but thought we would try one last time. It was terrible. The “family style” portions were very small. The noodles we mushy, the chicken lacked flavor other than the overly salty taste and the beef was tough. On top of that the waitress continued to forget our drinks until we had to ask again. Very disappointed especially since we were celebrating by grandmothers 91st birthday

There seems to be a question as to if I showed up or not. Our waitress was Misty and my check number was 40029 and we ordered Chicken Lettuce Wraps, Chicken Pad Thai and Sauteed Spicy Eggplant. After I paid my bill I ordered a to go order of Chilean Sea Bass from the Manager on duty that was a woman that was my first time meeting her. I tried to order with the hostess (it was my first time meeting her also) and she is the one that called the manager to take my order. We waited at the table and while I was in the ladies room Misty brought the to go order to the table. Please give me the credit .
for this visit.
Thanking you in advance.
