“A Wonderful Evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

My wife and I went there to celebrate the "X"th anniversary of our first date. They had the table in the area I requested within minutes of when we got there. The restaurant was full and they definitely put reservations ahead of the waiting list, and they must have had it coded because all the people that served us from the greeters to the server told us "Happy Anniversary" -- even the manager. Our food came quickly and our waiter gave us excellent service. Yes, the prices are a bit higher than some other restaurants in town, but its worth it to have the ambiance that goes with it (e.g., linen napkins, nice china plates and tableware, even a nicely dressed staff).

We skipped the appetizers, I had the sea bass and they substituted asparagus for the grilled spinach with no problems at all. It was cooked to perfection, as was my wife's sweet and sour chicken. They do something different here, hers included pieces of ginger cooked into the mix, The decaffeinated ginger tea was a nice change from the usual.tea served in Chinese restaurants. This flavor was only one of several that they offer, and each individually brewed with the teabags in an iron teapot. The complimentary cheesecake we picked out of several desserts was wonderful.

“GREAT Service, GOOD Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Busy Saturday night and the wait was about 45 minutes so grabbed a couple drinks at the bar while we waited. Typical PF Chang's, bustling, noisy and everyone is always on the move.

Service was excellent for as busy as they were and the food was delivered fairly quick. We sat with a good view of the kitchen and they were all hustling non-stop.

The menu is huge and the Lettuce Wraps for an appetizer is a must. Entrees are large portions so keep that in mind ..... almost always take some home.

This was our first time at P F Chang's. Me and my friend took our boys and they really enjoyed themselves, espically with eating for chopsticks for the first time. The service was excellent

“Chang Chang Chang”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Early Sunday afternoon found us at the bar of PF Chang's at the Summit. Our goal was a meal, not a drink, this time. The wait was to be an hour so we lucked into the bar slot. Sesame chicken and almond cashew chicken were perfect. I enjoy their mustards and sauces. A little dab will do ya. Even had a little left over. Brown rice is preferable for our tastes but maybe a little less healthy. Go patiently and hungry. Worth the wait. Try singing to pass the time," Chain Chain Chain, Chain of fools!" Good news is you won't be a fool for eating here.
