My granddaughter and I went to P.F. Changs at Fashion Valley, San Diego. The wait time was shorter than we were told. Our waitress was so friendly, courteous and attentive to our needs. The food was absolutely delicious. Portions were very generous. We'd definitely recommend the shrimp in lobster sauce! Loved everything about it!

We ate here twice during our recent visit to San Diego and enjoyed both experiences. The restaurant has a lively, and very contemporary ambiance. The menu offers a lot of variation and food is exceptionally good with large portions which work well for sharing. The service is good (with the exception of a rather surly server on our first visit...but... More

I have been coming to this PF Chang's ever since it opened. The food is always great and the service is top notch! It does get busy since the Fashion Valley mall is within walking distance. My favorites are the Japanese eggplant, shrimp with melon and candied walnuts and the 5 spice ribs. Oh and of course we can't forget... More

If you like clean and well prepared Asian food, this is the place to eat in San Diego. We had the Mongolian Beef and Ginger Chicken and Broccoli. So nicely prepared and our server, Matt was excellent. He accidently put in the lunch size order on the chicken but gave us the option to eat that and add the dinner... More

Yup, it's a good chain, but honestly there's no parking because it's sandwiched in behind embassy suites on a busy road or $4 bucks for valet. We are 2 on Saturday at 6 and the wait is an hour. Food finally is so- so. The wontons in the soup taste as if they have been dumped from the frozen section... More

There is often a wait here, but it is worth it. The food is almost always consistently good. If you find a few favorites, you can count on them being good every time. Although it can be busy, I've found the wait staff to be very good most of the time. The servers I've had are prompt, friendly, efficient, and... More

We dine in & take out often from this restaurant so it's definitely a family favorite (even though it's a chain). We like knowing what we're going to get before we go, and that we'll probably enjoy our meal & time there, along with about what it will cost. We decided to try it for Christmas Eve dinner this year... More

The best Chinese restaurant around. It's a chain and is big, but the food is superb. At busy times you can wait up to an hour for a table, and they take reservations only for large groups. Call ahead of time for wait time, go for a drink while waiting if the wait time is tolerable, but go somewhere else... More

My husband and I highly recommend the P.F. Chang’s at Fashion Island in San Diego. We selected the holiday menu that included Chang’s signature chicken lettuce wraps followed by the spicy tuna (sushi) rolls – please note, I enjoy spicy so I ate the sushi rolls that were placed on daubs of red sriracha chili sauce and left the other...
