Hostess and wait staff were excellent. However, my dining partner requested the broccoli be cooked to a soft texture. Despite returning the first serving, the kitchen was unable to get the softness desired. There was little difference in the two servings presented. A comment was left on the receipt. Noise was high, but not unacceptable. We would go there again.

With reservation, we were seated quickly. The staff is friendly. The food was mostly tasty. My only issue was with the bulgogi. It was rather dry. Honestly, I make it better at home. If the price was lower, I would not have been as bothered. I really don’t think I will come back to this restaurant. But...if you decide to try this place, just don’t get the bulgogi and maybe things will work out.

I used to look forward to PFC. But a previous experience in Baltimore, plus this one, are bringing me down. The place itlelf is nice, and there's nothing wrong with the service.

But the food is just plain not as good as it was back in the day. The upcharged (that's OK) fried rice was a lonely little portion in the bottom of a big bowl. And the Chang's special spicy chicken (top left on center page of menu) arrived hot on my plate after 3 minutes in the microwave and 10 years in the freezer.

There is mebbe a kinda confluence between the food's downturn and the buyout (used to be a public company) by Centerbridge Partners. Cost-cutting?

The service was good, but a bit slower than we would’ve liked at times. The food was pretty good and of great value. I’ve had better, but I’ve also paid plenty more, so no real complaints.

Good meal. Only issue was my entree as delivered was kung pao chicken instead of shrimp- rather than send it back I just made sure my bill reflected the change (not sure how the swap occurred).

Just had the best meal we have experienced at PFC. Prior times there have been "so-so", nothing especially good abut the meal or the service. This time it was all good. The sushi doesn't compare with that found at other places but the soup t know why they insist on trying to seat us right next to other occupied tables when there are many unoccupied tables & booths available that would allow us to have a little more privacy & intimacy without the louder chatter from others.

Celebrated my sons graduation. He wanted to come here. The last time I ate here several years ago the food was so so and a bit overpriced. Years later I’m happy to say that the food is better and the hot and sour soup was very very good. The food was tasty though the portions did have enough meat for our liking it was still good. A little too noisy but overall a good experience.

We eat at PF Chang’s throughout the US. Always consistent. Our favorites are the Mongolian beef, the Filet Mignon dish and the spicy chicken. This evening we tried chicken pad Thai. We weren’t impressed. Will stick with a Thai restaurant for that. Will definitely go back.

I appreciate locales where tables are ready at reservation time. This seems to be no such place. We arrived on time for our reservation, yet were made to wait ten to fifteen minutes for our table. I fully understand that fifteen minutes is a pittance compared to having to wait half an hour or more without a reservation.
The beef on my Beef A La Sichuan dish was a little on the extra crispy side. Besides that, it was a fine experience with excellent service from all personnel.

We were not seated until almost 8pm with a 7:15 reservation.
The lettuce with our lettuce wraps was tiny pieces. Server did bring us new lettuce after we were almost finished eating them. We both ordered rice with our meals and we only got one small plate. Portions could have been much larger for the price.
