Server was SO nice... not super on the ball, but very friendly. Meals took much longer than usual for a busy night, which was a little disappointing since we chose this venue pre-concert dur to their typically spot on timing.

We very much enjoyed our dinner at the P.F. Chang's in the Irvine Spectrum. Our waitress was delightful and we had a great dinner. The Hot and Sour Soup could have been a bit hotter but the flavor was spot on as always. We would definitely return to dine here again.

The service was terribly slow. The tables around us in the dining room remained unbussed throughout our dinner. We left with the impression that they were understaffed or not well managed.

I have many allergies and our waitress took care to be sure all of my needs were met. The food came in a timely manner and was very good. The chef made a special sauce for my meal that I could eat. Overall, a very good experience. I will be back.

Food was not as good as usual. Had to send cauliflower back because it was over cooked. Crispy green beans were all stuck together with batter falling off. Saw many to go orders leaving the restaurant. Seems they have too many orders and cannot handle it all.

We were seated relatively quickly though it took longer than usual for the wait staff to come by our table (and the section was not very busy). Once we got our orders in, everything smoothed out. The food selections were very good and prices reasonable for the quality and quantity. This is one of our go-to spots for dinner before a movie.

Pretty disappointing even with modest expectations. Not the first time at this place, so wasn’t expecting anything gourmet or even authentic. But even for Americanized Chinese-style bistro fare, it was bland, and rather unappealing. The flavors were not great. The service was also pretty slow, considering it was a Monday night.

It seems PF Chang’s used to be a lot nicer. Now I know I’m not getting anything really Asian authentic as the only Asians I ever see in those restaurants are with Caucasian. Also I did not really appreciate that I ordered combo lo mein and asked for additional shrimp and they brought me a plate with about eight medium sized steamed shrimp not even in the sauce. And the shrimp came out about 20 minutes after I ordered them and was done with my meal. I could understand if the place was busy but there were more servers and bartenders than there were people sitting at the bar or in the restaurant. Oh and I was very disappointed with this P.F. Chang’s experience. It’s unfortunate because the Browns been around for quite some time

Food is reliably good. I love this location because there are lots of shops and outdoor seating for people watching or chilling before or after your meal. As for food, we shared the eggplant (delicious and not spicy even though menu labeled it as spicy), shrimp fried rice and honey chicken. For cocktails we had sangria and the sparkling blossom, both pair nicely with the food.

We had a reservation and were seated promptly. We had asked for a booth and the first one we had was near the door and quite chilly. The 2nd booth was directly underneath the air conditioning and was even chillier. We asked to move to a 3rd booth. Each time, we were accommodated courteously and without any aggravation. The 3rd booth was fine. Food was excellent and service was swift and very attentive. Excellent meal. The restaurant was packed when we left, a testament to the good food and excellent service.

Everything was okay. The cauliflower temporal wasn’t very good. We sent that back. The lettuce wraps were great and the honey chicken was pretty good. The desserts were not very good. Especially the coconut strawberry cake which could have been delicious.

We were out on the patio so the ambiance was great and noise level no problem. Service was a little slow considering it didn’t seem terribly busy. I’m assuming because it was a long walk to our table we were sort of forgotten.

Normally, I would give Chang's a good review. I do recommend trying this location.

However, on this day, it was not good at all. The almond cashew chicken entree was fine. Two other entrees were terrible; poorly cooked and had to be returned. The kitchen made good, however, it did not make for a very pleasant experience.

PF Changs is always a go to Chinese restaurant. Good food for moderate price . I enjoyed the lettuce wraps and tempura green beans. Generous portions. I was disappointed that my friend, who ordered the Miso Salmon entree was not able to add on a soup for $2.50. $5 for a cup of soup seems high. The hot green tea was only luke warm, and they took it back to put hot water in it. Service was great, waiter kept coming back to check on us.

There was two managers on staff and I appreciated the one manager that came over to check on us
Unfortunately the other came through our area twice and moved acknowledged our table , I did notice that he did approach all the other tables in our area
Tall thin guy , the shorter bearded manager was appreciated

The Irvine location is our favorite. The spring rolls with sweet and sour sauce is great. Almond cashew chicken is my personal favorite. Pad Tai shrimp could have been better with larger shrimp. The shrimp was popcorn size. Honey chicken is a tasty dish. Our server was the best. Unfortunately, the PFChang's continually shuffles wait staff between locations.
