Mongolian Beef dish RULES!!!!
Delicious!
Good quality drinks. Service could have been more attentive. We had to wait much too long for our appetizer (chicken/lettuce dish).

One of my favs, sadly gone way downhill. Seems like massive cut to staff. Waiters cleaning and busing tables, serving, and doing the work of many it seemed . Our waiter Bill was terrific and friendly but clearly doing more than waiting on tables. Not busy but had to wait 10 minutes to clear a table by window instead of a dark table by a wait station which request was resisted due to lack of staffing, request to st outside which was empty also denied. Food not as good as prior experiences. Just ok. Music blaring I guess to make it seem more fun but interfered with talking. If it’s to make you eat faster for turn over purposes, there was hardly anyone in there so that seems like a poor strategy. Vibe was a downer. Prediction: P.F. Chang’s is on its way out.

The hostess could
Seat us when we arrived 5minutes early, she said, well it not 1:30 yet so.
I didn’t really think the waitress was great, she seemed to have a chip on her shoulder.
I felt when we asked something it was an inconvenience.
Why can’t I buy a gift certificate and use it immediately to pay for
My meal?

One of the reasons we enjoy coming here with friends is that they offer a Gluten-free menu- so critical for anyone with Celiac disease. The food is delicious, great variety. Excellent customer service and staff. The manager is top notch. Upbeat ambience and great for groups.

I didn't expect the food to be particularly memorable, so I guess it was okay. But the server filling in while our server was on a break either forgot to place an order or didn't follow up on it, do that my husband's appetizer showed up after we finished the main course, and after we asked about it 2 times. They comped it, but that was shabby service. She also sent the food from the 2 tables on either side of us to our table, so I guess her attention was not in her job that day. Aside from that, it was a decent meal at a chain restaurant.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
