We ordered lettuce wraps, egg rolls, a lg bowl of hot sour soup and sake. The wraps were good... the soup was warm, not hot. The egg rolls were hot but took 20 minutes to come to the table, not 6 as we'd been told. The waiter was pleasant but took a long time to check back in. Water refills... More

First of all, unlike most of the better family-owned restaurants in this area where food quality and service is usually at a high standard, this restaurant is lacking. This restaurant is like the one of the same chain in Mission Valley, a 15 minute drive away. The quality/consistency of food and service varies greatly with frequent staff changes. It reminds...

I visit P.F. Chang's in La Jolla every time I visit San Diego. It has a nice open space, dining here is relaxing, the service is friendly, fast and unpretentious service. The food is fresh, consistent, and always well prepared. I live in London, but this one still is my favourite Chinese restaurant anywhere.

Like the most chain restaurants you know you are not getting the best food or the best service. Once or twice a year I end up in a P.F. Chang's and normally enjoy it. This one had just horrible service. First they forgot the kids menu, which means we had to wait 30 min for them to bring us some.... More

Dining at this P.F. Chang's location was a relaxing and wonderful dining experience. It's a beautiful location with floor to (high) ceiling windows, comfortable seating with indoor and outdoor seating. I've eaten at other locations and the flavor and freshness found here exceeds all others. Our server was fast, friendly and the best. I look forward to returning to this... More

We got take out from the La Jolla PF Changs one night and liked it so much that we went back to have a sit down meal a few nights later. The service was great, and friendly. The Pad Thai was excellent. We also got a few smaller plates of soup, deep-fried beans, garlic beans, and ribs which were amazing.... More

This is a nice restaurant but the menu was hard to chose from. The food is not authentic Chinese which makes it difficult

Average (American) Chinese food. The service was good, but you are better off venturing off to a real Chinese restaurant that offers dim sum or other authentic options. I would compare to a over priced Panda Express with bar options, look elsewhere.

We love the fact that P. F. Changs offers so many options for someone who is gluten free. Several of the valet have been there an extended time. There is a bar located in the center of the restaurant. This tends to be busy with patrons.

Located adjacent to our hotel and visible from our room, this restaurant was busy day and night. Ate there one night and food was good, but not great. We've had better experiences at other PF Changs. Service was friendly and engaging.
