As usual it was good

Pretty typical PF Chang's...Good food, good service and nice atmosphere. if there was a downside it was the noise. Acoustics made it a bit difficult to hold a conversation.

Stopped by for lunch, anticipating their Oolong Sea Bass. We were surprised by the seasonal special Sea Bass, so we tried it. It was delicious, a different flavor the Oolong preparation, not so soy based in flavor. Still like the Oolong version, but the seasonal was good. Have been here often with my staff over the last few years. Always... More

Enjoyed it so much had to return for a second visit to have the same again. Would like to have had more opportunity to try more selections from the extensive menu. Food quality... More

Stopped in for lunch with the family. Had their large wonton soup and WOW what a dish. Kids had California rolls, and my wife ordered orange chicken. We also had an order of lettuce wraps. Everything was right on point and very tasty. A bit pricy but well worth the expense.

Five of us came to have lunch. We walked into the restaurant and a very bad odor of spoiled fish assailed us. We mentioned it to the girl who brought us to our table and she sort of ignored it. We should have left but we were hot and hungry so we stayed. The food was disappointing. One dish that... More

Poor presentation ... menu atypical ... food served lukewarm ... fusion Asian cuisine ... overpriced ... franchise needs better training.

Food is good. Service very good, no rushing you in and out. Desserts a little pricey but tasty. Would return if in the area.

P.F. Changs is the only Chinese food we eat. We've been to these restaurants from the east coast to the west coast. The food is consistent at every location. Pan seared pork dumplings, combo fried rice, honey crusted shrimp, and Mongolian beef with green beans replacing the onions is our regular order. Absolutely deliciouss. Enough for left overs the next... More
