Nice gluten-free menu

Traveling with celiac disease can be challenging. P F Chang's has a good gluten-free menu and works hard to avoid cross contamination.

We visit the US every year from Australia and almost always someone suggests PF Chang's as it is hugely popular. We go, but ..... There always seems to be a wait, no matter how busy the place appears to be. The decor is pleasant, but the menu is just too Westernized, but in an odd way. Prices are high and... More

This PF Chang's was super convenient to our hotel - they shared a parking garage! Food is always great and the wait staff was friendly and quick!

Wonderful food, decadent desserts and a great location for me since I live in the neighborhood. In warmer weather, sit outside and enjoy a cool San Diego evening. Highly recommend the food and, if you order the Great Wall of Chocolate for dessert, you will need to share!

Next to the Embassy Suits La Jolla is P.F. Chang located, so we decided to have dinner there. In short: Large selection of Chinese dishes, good service and great taste. Perfect restaurant to visit.

Very good food and egg soup. Service is great and ambience is also good. If you like Chinese food and you are near la jolla then just go for it.

We ate here because it was conveniently located outside of our hotel. We ordered a bowl of wonton soup as a starter. The soup hardly had any water chestnuts, shrimp or chicken. It was basically broth and 6 wontons. Dinner was good. The service was slow for having only a half filled house. My wife never received the wine she... More

If you ask for spicy, you get spicy! Good experience overall, recommended. Especially convenient pick if you stay at nearby Embassy Suites La Jolla and wish to break out of the hotel just a minute's walk away.
