This was our first in-person visit to PFC since early last year. All of our food was very good and delivered promptly. Service was attentive and friendly. My overall impression, however, was that the place seemed kind of tired. When it originally opened, this chain had aspirations of being quite an upscale establishment, but after a year of lock-down, I was disappointed with the bare tables and floors and a menu that seemed less Chinese and more "Asian fusion" than I remember in its earlier days. The food prices were on the high side, but not enough to be off-putting. The wine prices, however, were high for a mid-level chain joint -- some bottles were more than three times the price at Costco. Still, I'd rate our overall experience as "good" -- mostly due to the well-prepared, good quality meals.

We got a back corner table which was great so we could talk and enjoy our dinner date. Waiter was nice and got our order correct. Only issue we had was that he didn’t come around enough to check our beverages. Other than. That food was yummy, restaurant was chill and we enjoyed our evening.

Used to love of Chang’s. Quality of food declined, ambiance declined, table presentation declined, clientele sloppy and unkept. Company lost its class in MV. I’ll try UTC.

Had 6:30pm reservation but didn’t get seated until 6:55pm. Only when I asked about delay did they seat us suggesting that we were lost in shuffle. Food service was awful. Took 20 minutes to get our drinks despite ordering water and a beer. I will never spend my money at PF CHANGES again

The Open Table interface does not work with PF Chang’s. The restaurant did not honor the reservation. Please take note and not make further reservations with PF Chang’s.

Service was very slow and they were not very busy. Had a reservation and still waited 30 minutes to be seated. Then, the hostess told us we were limited to 90 minutes at the table when she seated us. Took 20 minutes before taking our drink and appetizer order. Waitress was very friendly and attentive after our initial drink/appetizer orders were taken. Food was very good.

Excellent food with healthy options too. The portions are a "healthy size" yet still shareable. Due to COVID we had to eat on the outdoor patio, but there is not noise on that end of the parking lot. It is nice and quiet. We preferred to be on their actual patio instead of the temporary tent because it was prettier ambience. The restaurant tried their best to accommodate us with a heater and we were happy! Fast service and lots of great choices!

P.F. Chang’s is and remains one of my favorites. Some scoff that it’s “not real Chinese”, but I don’t care. The food is delicious, the service good and the ambiance is OK with me. I look forward to freedom from Covid19 regulations, so PFC can get its energy back. Not your fault, PFCHANG!

Unfortunately they took some items off the menu, including my favorite dish. The menu is smaller and the portions are smaller, not big enough to share around the table any longer. My family and I really loved PF Chang's for our Friday night meals, but not sure if we will return with these changes.
