“Good food, good allergy policy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Our daughter has a nut allergy and she normally can't eat chinese food because we don't trust that there won't be nut oil in the entrees and alot of time the staff doesn't speak enough English to convey our concerns about the allergy. PF Changs has a nut free menu and the food is not prepared in the same area with nuts. They take allergies very seriously. Plus the food is really good. We love the the chicken lettuce wraps and the moo shoo pork. The steamed dumplings are also excellent. The staff is always very nice. It gets quite busy there on weekends so you might want to make a reservation. You can do that on their website.

“Great chain, excellent location.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

Party of six: two children with parents and grandparents.
This is one of the finest PF Chang's locations I have visited, having been to other stores in Honolulu, Colorado, Boston, Las Vegas, and Austin. Phenomenal service from exuberant waitstaff, and excellent food as always. Decor is modern and chic, without overdoing the Chinese angle or being overly pretentious.
My wife had the Asian Grilled Norwegian Salmon, which was delicious and fresh. I had the Kung Pao shrimp, which was quite good if a little too salty. Grandpa had the pepper steak and could not say enough good things about it. Grammy had the Shanghai shrimp with garlic sauce -- no complaints. Kids had the Baby Buddha's feast and actually ate the vegetables. They also liked the hinged baby chopsticks, which I had not seen before at PF Chang's.

It was pricy, but worth it for a very nice family dinner with options for everyone. Even if you are not a fan of Chinese food per se, my guess is that you will find something to like here. Oh yeah, the desserts are incredible -- we had the Banana Spring Rolls and the Great Wall of Chocolate.

“Great choices for vegetarians and vegans”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

We visited this PF Changs on a recent Saturday night. Our party of seven included 3 vegans, two vegetarians, and two omnivores. As always, the choices were many and the food delicious. The service was attentive and prompt, and the decor pleasant. My only complaint...it was COLD in there. I wish I had brought a sweater. We always seek out a PF Changs when we travel (this one was half an hour from where we were staying) because we can count on a great meal there.

“You know just what you are going to get!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2012

We are lucky enough to have a PF Chang's within a 5 minute drive from our home. We dine here often. Very rarely are we disappointed with either the service or the food. They just updated there menu and added some wonderful new items. Our only complaint is they changed there wine list and removed our favorite wine. The ones they added are from small vineyards yet to be heard of by most folks we were told. When a bottle of wine costs $51 and you can't get a glass to see if you would even like it - well - big mistake! It will not stop us from going because we do like the food even if sometimes it is not up to snuff. On the rare occasion something was wrong with our meal it was replaced without any hesitation by the staff. Thank you for that!

“Amazing Service, Amazing Food!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2012

I've been to P.F. Chang's about 4 times now, and I have yet to be disappointed. The service is friendly, and knowledgeable, the food comes quick, and is always correct, and FRESH!

Nothing bad to say except value. It's not cheap, but it's worth it!
