Chicken Lettuce wraps, YUMMMMM

Need I say more that Yummy chicken lettuce wraps? Actually everything is really delicious, and it's nice that a chain can follow through on quality of food! Always a great choice among the chains!

Drove down from the Bay Area yesterday, and after spending almost 3 hours in stop and go traffic in L.A., my gf and I were craving a delicious meal. We started thinking of good restaurants between Dana Point and Escondido, anything from Italian to seafood. I finally thought of P.F. Chang's in Carlsbad, where we had a wonderful meal several...

skip it. I have been to much better. I am not sure if it is the tourist nature of the area? I live only a few blocks away yet I will drive to a different location many miles away, to be sure of quality food

I am not a fan of Asian food, but PF Changs is different. The service is good, the atmosphere is lovely and the food is really good

Vegetarians. WE loved the lettuce wraps and the green beans. the ma po tofu was tasty, but i'd prefer soft tofu not fried. broccoli excellent. a nice bottle of wine. the atmosphere is nice soothing and local. we were there at happy hour time and the bar was full. we enjoyed dinner, wine and service.

We have visited P. F. Chang's in Colorado and always had a great experience. This one was just average. The food was fine, but not outstanding. Our server started asking for dessert orders when only 3 of our party of 7 had finished eating. That is a bit pushy, and it was not a busy time, so there was no... More

The restaurant is decorated beautifully and the staff was very pleasant and knowledgeable. This is a large establishment and busy but our food arrived in good time and everything we ordered was just delicious. The portion size was good and any leftovers are packed up for you to take home. The sweet and sour soup was different than others I... More

Reservation was available right on time, service was prompt, attentive and helpful. The food quality exceeded our expectations, our glasses were never empty, and everyone in our group had a great experience.

It was a Monday evening and this place was packed. It was only 7pm. Very good hospitality. Our server , Bryan was great, very professional and friendly. But the whole "team" approach for serving and bringing the food seems to be very slow this evening. Bryan was trying very hard to keep things rolling and making sure that we were... More

I am familiar with this chain and always enjoyed my meal, but not that night. the place wasn't too busy, but the lemon chicken we were served was inedible. We then changed with the Kung Pao and it was ordinary. Staff however was very nice. maybe just an off night
