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.

I go to this place with family, friends and co-workers. It's a nice place to grab a good (kind of healthy :) ) dinner with really good drinks. Bartenders (Nick & his wife) are just amazing...

As this is a chain, we have been to many in different cities. This one, attached to the Embassy Suites in La Jolla, was particulary nice. The food is their standard fare. It was, however, really good. They have a gluten-free menu, which we needed this time and appreciated. They offer Asian food of good quality for a chain property.

The ambiance is better than other PF Changs I have visited but the food is just average. The service was amazing, and the waiter was very acomodating.

I have been here a few times as it is on the property of the hotel I frequently stay at when visiting UCSD. Have never had a bad meal or bad service. Last visit coincided with my son's 15th birthday and we arrived without reservations with a party of 6 and chose to sit outside to avoid a very long... More
