Catch up with friends...

Best place I know to get friends together and catch up! Lunch, dinner either work well. I like the seating choices, booths, tables, private tables away from entrance, something for every type of collaboration. Food, service excellent moderate price, never disappointed.

We went to P.F. Chang's in Carlsbad last evening and had a really great experience. We were supposed to have lunch there, but due to some unforeseen circumstances, we didn't get there until 545pm. Happy hour was in full swing, so I had a Sam Adams Seasonal beer (they should have more San Diego beers on tap, my only criticism)... More

We truly enjoyed having several dinners at P.F. Chang's. Their food is well prepaired and fresh, the ambiance is okay and their services good. The only disadvantage is that you really have to make a reservation since the waiting time can be more than an hour.

This is a great place to eat if you want a bit more than strictly Chinese food. There are some very interesting choices such as Chicken lettuce wraps, or crab wontons. This place is great for family style meals also. They have a very large selection of gluten free dishes also.

Simply outstanding! i would come here every week, no doubt, if only there was one in my area. We visited both the Carlsbad and Temecula locations, with amazing consistency between the two in terms of food and service. The Carlsbad ambience is much nicer, of course, being newer and bigger than Temecula. Everything, from service to food to pricing is... More

Great food especially the dynamite shrimp. Interesting variety not found in many other restaurants. Nice decor although somewhat dark.

Our favorite stop for lunch but also great evening meals. Moderately priced and great service. They always have egg drop soup and many spices to add to your meal.

Making reservations online is a great time saver. We barely waited 2 minutes for our table to be ready. Our server was courteous and very attentive to our needs. Our meal was delivered to our table in less than 10 minutes. Food was great! If you like salmon, you won't be disappointed. The atmosphere was very nice, with the exception... More

This was a nice change of pace since we don't eat Asian food that much, especially when traveling on the road across the country in the car. The service here was very welcoming as our server James took care of everything we needed and was very knowledgeable about the menu. The outside patio is nice too.
