PF Chang's is a chain and as such does not have terrific food, but not bad either. Think Olive Garden or Red Lobster, the food is nothing to write home about but it is consistently decent.
The service was a little spotty at lunch but not because it was busy, just seemed like the roles and responsibilities of the various staff people were not clearly delineated.
We ate off the lunch menu which was fairly robust and the price was right. One thing that did surprise us was the wine menu, much more extensive than we might have anticipated.
Overall if you are in the area and want lunch, like Chinese food and want an atmosphere several levels above your average Chines restaurant give it a try. You probably will not be wowed but you will get your fix of Chinese food at a decent price.

With so many wonderful Chinese family owned restaurants all over the San Francisco Bay Area I don't understand a fast food chain as a choice. One could argue that as most Chinese restaurants (but not all) are low on decor P.F.C. fills a need - but if you want atmosphere you don't go to a Chinese Restaurant.

Maybe the idea behind this chain is many American's feel lost in a "foreign" restaurant but here in this area I will be very suprised to see this place make it BUT this is a product of the same management that brought us Chipotles and there are 165 of these fast food operations in California! Who eats there?

I met a friend at P.F. Chang's because he was attracted to the under $10 lunches but I left still preferring a CHINESE restaurant for Chinese food and there are many $8.95 combination lunch plates.

It won't hurt you to go there and I know KFC is big in China! but if it is not fast food you want and you know your Szechwan from your Hunan it is probably best to stick with your local Chinese restaurant.

This was our 3rd time there and the food remains great. But something was not going well the night we were there; one person led us to the table, after quite a while someone came by and took a drink order and told us who our server would be, this person never arrived so the drinks person came back, then the food came with another person who then said he had taken over. For a one hour meal to have so many different changes this was disruptive. Perhaps this was just an off night? Our leftovers were just as good the second day, so I would give them another try.

This is an upscale Chinese Restaurant, good food and fairly priced.

PF Chang is on every supermarket shelf why would you bother eating in when you can microwave the stuff, I think that is what they do in the kitchen anyway. Poor quality, painfully noisy, over blown prices, just go away.
