Prices are very reasonable. It had been quite awhile since I had been to a PF Changs. I thinked they changed the Lettuce Wrap recipe so I was very disappointed in them and the chicken tasted burnt. The service was excellent.

Very big reduction in menu options. Fewer vegetarian choices. More difficult to get points. Much easier with phone number.

Our waiter, Nick, offered us a taste of their most popular dish which turned out to be a big hit & we'll definitely order it next time. Nick's friendly & attentive service made for a very pleasant dining experience.

A run down restaurant that's in desperate need of a renovation. Food is bad, not healthy. Worst than Panda Express believe it or not. Sigh.

It’s been a long time since I’ve been to a P.F. Chang’s and based on this experience I won’t be going again. I remember the food being healthier- not swimming in sauce and deep fried. Really nothing we had I could say was good. Service was excellent however. Bert did his best.

We arrived in the late afternoon for a post-cinema meal. The place was not at all busy. We were greeted and seated immediately. However, it was a good 10 to 15 minutes before the serving help discovered that we were there! This is unacceptable! The servers, all millennials, should have their eyes on the dining room, not on each other while playing, giggling and laughing. Once Teran, or server came over to us with menus and apologies, things got better. The food is excellent. The first old fashioned was weak and when informed, Teran made sure the redo was spot on. All in all a good experience except for the wait.

Our food was good, like usual at P.F. Chang’s. Our waiter was awesome: very quick and attentive.

Our only issue was with the furniture on the outdoor patio...the bench seats were worn out and uncomfortable. During our meal, we witnessed several other guests discover and comment on the same.

Good service can't compensate the overall food quality. Appetizers are good, tried Signature lettuce wrap and crispy avocado roll. Surf and turf is a little disappointing as $27 value, I prefer the traditional surf and turf with lobster and filet mignon rather than fired shrimps and well cooked filet with salty sauce.

The good was VERY average. Looked great on the menu but those were pictures! We had reservations, got there 5 minutes early. There were plenty of empty tables and waited at least 15 minutes before we were seated. The service was slow (perhaps the waiter had too many tables??? Don’t know). I’m sure other P.F. Chang’s are better. Hope so. The location of this one is great because it’s right across the street from the convention center and parking is readily available.

I used to love this restaurant but, sadly it has dropped in quality quite a bit. To begin with, the bathrooms were dirty and had no toilet paper (which to me is a HUGE reflection of the overall quality and cleanliness of any eating establishment). The second and more disappointing aspect of the evening was over fish sauce in a dish. I am a vegetarian and I ordered a noodle salad that did not list any meat in it. It came and when I ate it there was an overall strong fish smell. That was fine, I stopped eating it. But I asked the waiter if there was fish in it and it took about 15 minutes to get an answer. Because I have been a vegetarian for 30 years, the taste made me sick to my stomach, but again I was going to suck it up and try to enjoy the meal with friends I had not seen for many years. A manager came and expressed concern that I had an "allergy", apologized and that was pretty much it? The waiter, although I believe he was worried about getting in trouble, pretty much chastised me for not having disclosed that I was vegetarian and to tell me what did not have fish sauce on the menu? I did not want to get anyone in trouble and I was not going to make a big deal out of it, but they ended up making it a scene and taking away from the fun our group was having and making me feel uncomfortable. The food was ok, but not to the standard it used to be which was always consistently delicious.

Convenient, and nice weather. We ate at the outdoor patio. The food is adequate, service was so-so.
All in all, better than a burger joint, but definitely not high-brow.

I visited P.F. Chang.
I had a reservation. Made it threw open table.

I mention I had a baby, but. For this reason I was send to a small table.

Very small. We were 4 adults and one baby. They gave me a corner table away from everyone else. For 4 people ( forgotod the baby)
( don’t get me wrong) te place was good. But the table size awfully small.
Specially for all the items I order.
The Waiter, Mr. George who was extremely helpful, very kind and very helpful in every way.
Who pretty much chose our food.
He was having difficult laying out food around.

( Just cause I have a 4 month baby) that doesn’t mean he will be crying or making people uncomfortable and ( don’t give us a small table when the places is empty and your staff can find us a better place) anyways.

Food was very, very delicious.
Prices are high, very high.
Would I recommend this place. Yes.

Would I ask the people in charge to train there staff better yes.
Definitely.
But, George the Waiter was Excellent.
Thank you for everything

Our wonderful waiter, Justin, took care of us from the moment we sat down til he took care of our leftovers' containers. Great sense of humor while bringing us all our dishes hot and timely. We loved the second helpings of wasabi and sake. Tasty entrees - noodles, chicken etc were prepared exactly as requested and they were brought out in the perfect order. The only reason for 1 star Ambience was because we had requested a nice booth with ambience, and the hostess totally missed an opportunity to honor our request when she seated us off in a corner near the restrooms - so we moved. Overall PFChangs provided a rather nice dining experience.

I have enjoyed PF Changs since its inception. I also knew Philip Chang in the 80's. (his mother owned The Mandarin in Beverly Hills). The GF menu has ALWAYS been outstanding all all locations. They have reduced and removed the best dishes. I will not be going back. Also, our server had attitude.

Quality of food was good though my stir fry vegetables were too undercooked for my liking. I wish there was a cauliflower option instead of brown rice. Food was delicious otherwise. A little pricey. Good portion of fried rice.

I was disappointed at the significant delay in providing us our food, including soup, appetizer, main courses and dessert.
It was Lunar New Year’s evening, so you’d think a Chinese restaurant would be ready for its customers.
Our table was provided with fried wonton skins as compensation for the delay, but when leaving, I noticed the Manager offering free food discounts to other customers.
A truly disappointing experience on a celebratory occasion.

We were told by many friends to try the lettuce wraps and raved about them but they weren't that amazing. Pretty tasteless for us but the other food was good. A little more expensive than we were expecting, especially since the portions were smaller than I expected them to be. Overall, it was good. We enjoyed a quiet space to try new food.

I'm a long time fan of PF Changs (20 years or so) although their prices have shot up in the last several years. Food is very good. Small portions though. They took off Garlic Noodles off the menu but our server had it prepared off the menu which was nice. This PF Changs is nice but I still like the one in Burbank which was permanently closed.
