While the food was pretty good, the overall experience was below expectations. We had a Sunday, 6pm reservation for a party of 6. (1 person ended up being a no-show - work related). No problem with that. We were seated promptly and the table location was fine. Initial contact with our waitress was good and our drink orders were taken... More

If you sit at the bar the happy goes an hour longer and they have food and drinks on the menu. It was a fun place to sit and watch the game but without the "normal" sports bar atmosphere! The Red Sangria was ok but the Asian Pear Mojito and Strawberry Ginger Margarita were fantastic!

We got the meal for two where it comes with 2 soups, 1 appetizer, 2 entrees and a dessert and it was $65 for two people. The portions where decent in their defense but I don't know if I can justify spending $65 on a meal for two people for average Asian food. Our server was nice, the food came... More

We had a large party and the manager was very friendly in providing our large group an outside to fit all of us. The food was great and think the changes to the menu were an improvement over the years. Our waiter and waitress were a little inexperienced or appeared to be but in general it was fine. It was...

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.
