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!

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

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.
