The surf & turf was disappointing—too salty and I couldn’t even see or taste the “lobster” that was supposed to be in there. Pricey dish for what it was compared to other things on the menu.

P.F. Chang’s was once one of my favorite go to places. You could always count on good food, service and a clean tidy environment. Well, at least the food is still good. Service has become an after thought and tidiness of the establishments has continued to lower standards. We arrived and I had to watch a bus boy, on his break, play Nintendo Switch at the booth across from me. Really?!?! WTF?!?! The wine glasses had fingerprints and smudges all over them, which made me have ice tea. While the bus boy was on break, I had to wait for chili sauce while my soup became cold. The server was nice and became attentive after she noticed I was becoming less tolerant. The word lacking comes to mind when I think of P.F. Chang’s lately.

Overall P.F. Chang’s is great. But they ran out of sushi rice. Throughout our meal we were told “just 15 minutes more” multiple times. Finally we were ready to leave, never receiving sushi, & the table next to us got their sushi. It was my brother’s birthday, & we didn’t get quite what he wanted. Rest of meal great tho.

The waitress was very nice but everything was extremely slow and they were out of a lot of regular menu items.

This has become a food factory. Haven't been to Changs in six years. Thought we'd give it a go. Did not meet expectations. From the host who argued with us that we had a reservation (till she found it) to the cold main course delivered before we finished our appetizers ... Not a memorable experience. The server was very good - this was not her issue. The restaurant has become all about large quantities of marginal Chineese food. Sorry, but not likely to return.

If offered a seat in the lounge be prepared for loud conversations even between the server and an off duty co-worker.

Nice plce for good, fresh quality food. It can get very loud in the apace and a group ner to us spent most of their time screaming at each other.
Our waitress was nice but disappeared toward the end of the meal so we had to ask the manager for our check.
Good drinks at the bar.

Great food, service, reasonably priced. I don't typically like Chinese food but there is such variety at PF Changs, I find many items on the menu I love.

The Open-Table reservation seemed to make a difference. The folks went out of their way to accommodate my party. Even when members arrived later than expected due to traffic they made us comfortable in a booth and tended to our requests. Great service and hospitality!

Much of the meal was just wrongly seasoned...dishes were way too salty and way too sweet. The drinks were good. The service was amazing.

This restaurant is good. I have always liked P.F. Chang’s. I try to go there whenever I have the time and when it’s not gonna be busy. We went for a promotion, but we ended up getting normal meals and got half of our food compt because it was so slow that night. Thank you pf Chang’s.

Made a reservation. Still had to wait over 20 minutes to get seated, what’s the point of making a reservation. It took 5+ minutes to be acknowledged, our server was very nice.

Great staff. Always upbeat, smart, helpful. Although some items have changed for the worse (sizzling beef ingredients not as high quality as before), there are several that bring me back. Excellent emailed deals that make our meals a great value. Corporate but because the staff is so great and the interior well designed, the restaurant feels intimate and comfy.

I eat here at least once a month and then take in a movie at a nearby theater. It is an easy choice. Even though it is a chain restaurant the food is almost always well prepared and tasty, the service is pretty good and the waiters are friendly and remember you. I also like the ambiance they create with the fusion of Asian art and American design (particularly the way the bar is lighted), which makes the place seem both exotic and comforting at the same time. It is usually pretty busy on Saturday nights, but easy to get same day reservations.

Although a chain restaurant, P.F. Chang's does offer a tasty menu with generous portions and variety. We enjoyed Cecila's shrimp dim sum along with a wonderful sea bass on sauteed spinach and a glorious chocolate cake! Oh yum, always good to know when you're traveling that you can count on P.F. Chang's to deliver.

We were originally sat in the dining room by the window but the AC was really cold so we moved to the high tops in the bar area. Sierra was our server and she was terrific! She check on us appropriately and was very friendly. We noticed that she also took great care of the couple next to us that were gluten free. Always a great meal at PF Changs.
