Very rushed experience. Put our entree orders in while waiting for our appetizer. Appetizers came out no more than 2 minutes after our main entrees came out. While working on our food and trying to enjoy ourselves, waiter kept coming by to try and drop the bill off and offer us boxes when we still had plenty of food we were still eating. Our reservations were for 6:30pm we were out of there before 7pm with being so rushed. Food was subpar also. If you’re looking to enjoy yourself, don’t come here.

My party of 4 arrived at 5:00 p.m. for our reservations on New Year's Eve. We had great service and the good and drinks were excellent. They were not very crowded when we first arrived, but it was packed by the time we left around 6:30.

The server was hard to hear because he was so soft spoken. The server was not very attentive and I constantly had to ask for more ice tea. I asked for a California Roll as an appetizer and when I asked our server what was taking so long for the roll he said he thought we wanted it with dinner. He brought us our California Roll and 1 minute later our dinner arrived. The chicken in our Lo-Mein dish was dry and overcooked and it wasn’t very edible. The Changs Spicy Chicken was good but it got cold quickly because we were sitting not to far from the front door that was wide open. Overall it was the most disappointing experience I have had at PF Changs in a long time. I expected the PF Changs at the Irvine Spectrum to be better quality and have better service, but it did not.

We had a terrific waiter. He was patient and attentive.
Food was just so so. Steamed dumplings were barely cooked. Pepper steak was delicious.
Reason for 4 rating is the hostess was rude. Instead of addressing us by our name she tells another employee to “take these 2 to table 90” there were other tables many available but they bring us to a table were people finished and there were dirty dishes
We finally moved to a better spot

We always go there and ask for Alex. She is one of the best waitresses there. I’ve been told by PF Chang‘s that they have reached out to her and told her that I’ve left several reviews but she said no one has spoken to her. If P.F. Chang’s corporate office is smart or their management is smart they will do whatever they can to keep her because she works her butt off and is one of the most valuable team members at the Irvine spectrum location.She made my fiancé’s birthday awesome

Great food and great evening, thanks especially to our server, Emma, who seemed to have a couple difficult tables that night. She managed everything very well, with drinks and food orders on a timely manner, without feeling rushed or houvord over.

We had a reservation and were seated immediately. Our server was very attentive and our meal came quickly. I had the ginger chicken & broccoli and my friend had the chicken lo mein. Both were excellent. We finished and then sat there for a while in conversation. Our waiter was extremely polite and didn't rush us at all. It was a very enjoyable experience.

I have been to PF Changs many times over the last several years, and this location more than 25 times over the past two years. For me, this is the last time. When we arrived with our reservation, we were seated, and then waited 10 minutes to be acknowledged by the wait staff. There were very few guest and lots of wait staff. Our wait person was totally indifferent, we are understand given the impact of the pandemic. However, even simple requests for water did not happen. The manager, whom we have seen over and over has no clue or interest in who we are, and makes no attempt to engage with guests here. It truly is a sad place at this point. We can only guess it is days or weeks before it is gone. A shame for the original wonderful concept.

It was overall very nice. The only thing I take issue on is that I made a reservation and many other tables didn’t and yet they gave us a horrible table with most staff and clients had to walk pass us. I don’t think that made sense.
If we are trying to space out people there is no need to put tables on the walk way .

Our dinner was nice but our table was not ideal, felt busy and loud. Also, limited to 90 mins, due to Covid. We barely finished in time. Our fried green beans were the best!!!

The food was good as usual and we were pleased. But the service was unusually slow and disjointed. Being reduced capacity due to Covid, I figured service would have been better, but drinks were very slow to be delivered and we had to ask more than once for things we needed.

Ordered Peking Duck and Singapore Street noodles and Korean Lettuce wraps appetizer. Never got the appetizer, and Peking Duck is not peking duck at all. Singapore noodles were thrown on a plate like slop and were flavorless. We used to love PF Changs but haven’t come for quite a while.and were very disappointed.

I came on Valentine’s Day and had a reservation at 8 PM. I was seated around 8:20 PM. They were really busy, and were just waiting for a table to open. They had a 90 minutes dining time limit, which I felt was enough time. Ambience is very nice. Food and service was great as always.

The food and server were good. Once we placed our order, our appetizer came out quickly but our entrees took some time to come out. Finally one of them came out and then we finished it and the others didn't come out. We asked our server and she said there were to many take out orders and it was going to be a bit till the kitchen got to our ticket. The manager came over and explained the same thing. Once the rest of our food came out it was very good.

It was great, except for the poor couple 2 associates would not refresh the heater propane for. About 15 mins after that. The table next to them got propane for their heater. I was shocked, as was the couple that didn’t get that propane.
