Located in the parking lot of the Embassy Suites. It is a great alternative to hotel food. I stopped over for a quick dinner and love that I can always depend on the quality of the food.

Can't believe anyone would of rated this place good. It was "PRE" prepared food. Almost like what was just waiting to be put together to serve. FAST FOOD but with a price. Not MADE TO ORDER. We ordered a thai pad chicken/shrimp and sushi. It was horrible. SO quickly served and it tasted like it had been in the frig... More

There was a large group of us - kids and adults - showing up for a semi-surprise dinner for one of our cousins. The staff did their best to manage the many needs, requests and separate checks. I appreciate that they did their best that night. I'm not saying we were overly needy (at least, I don't think we were),... More

My wife and I like PF Changs in general. This one in particular is located on a corner location in LaJolla. Next to hotel we were worried about parking but they had a nice valet service out front for only 4 bucks. Inside is roomy and they have a very large U shaped bar. We decided to dine at the... More

This is located right in the parking lot of the La Jolla Embassy Suites so it was very very convenient. Delicious and fresh food. Bar was great with good service.

Exactly what you would expect from a chain restaurant. P. F. Chang's is the Chinese flavored version of Outback, Famous Dave's, Applebee's etc. The food is good, just not great. There is a good selection. So, everyone should be able to find something to fit their taste. On a positive note, the entire staff was quite friendly and provided good... More

Let me begin by telling you that I love PF Changs and have eaten at many of their restaurants over the years. With those expectations, we decided to have dinner here while on a family vacation in the area during June 2016. This restaurant is in the UHC area of La Jolla, and shares a parking lot with an Embassy... More

As a business traveler, I'm often forced to order delivery through Eat24 or directly from local vendors. When it's all said and done these services become very expensive. Fortunately, this P.F. Chang's is located across the parking lot from the Embassy Suites La Jolla. I was able to order take out and save myself the delivery charges and excessive tip.... More
