My kids enjoyed dinner there

My sons loved food there. He is very picky on foods but after dining there, he loves the food and wants to come back again. The staffs are very friendly and provided good service.

First time at this food chain and was very nice for our family. We had a great waiter who help us with the menu options and was very friendly. Food was great, we order diferent plates for sharing.

My wife and I visited a P F Chang restaurant in Irvine when they first opened many years ago. We were not overly impressed then and our opinion had not changed. There were seven of us family members for dinner in a corner booth that was so dark we had to use I-phone flashlights to read the menu. Our waiter... More

Haven't been back for awhile so gave it another try. Enjoyed the lettuce wraps and the trio taco plate and a few beers at their happy hour. Tacos a bit too spicy for me. Husband really liked them. We will go back again.

The food was ok. perhaps to the taste of our nation. but the eggplant and the ma po tofu were very salty. They offered to recook the meal for us, which is nice, but i'm not sure that would have made a difference. The waiter paid for one dish that we had ordered by mistake. Staff is great.

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
