First time to PF Changs and it was a mixed bag, though we went twice, largely because the veggies (asparagus and beans) were so good, and we thought that our bad service was an anomaly. We loved the atmosphere of the place, and in general the food was good (but pretty much all fried). We liked the veggies, the lettuce... More

We had dinner on 27th Oct.2016 in P. F. Chang's, Carlsbad. Really we enjoyed the food. There is bar with good quality of wine in the restaurant. Atmosphere was pleasant. Service was prompt, polite & excellent.

We had a very good early dinner at P.F. Chang's. Service was Great and our food was very good. It did appear that portions are a little smaller than before, which is something I find at a lot of restaurants these days. Our server, Haley was very attentive and overall experience was very good. New item Sichuan Asparagus was excellent... More

FOOD was GREAT and their customer service was beyond EXCELLENT. The manager went to our table...he introduced himself and apologized because our Hot Sour Soup was taking so long...they're making a fresh batch. The Manager comp our Hot Sour Soup. =) Plus, all the waiters here are good looking...so all you single ladies...this is the place to be. =)

Have to say the prices have increased and the portions have decreased! Even for lunch I would like to see lower pricing than the dinner menu. Service was okay though.

I used to love to eat at PF Chang's when it first opened up in La Jolla. They have some great dishes, but it's sort of just average to me now. That said however, they have some of their "original" dishes that are tasty and fun... particularly their quintessential lettuce wraps and double pan fried noodles. We ate here because... More

The menu appears the same in all locations, but the chefs are not the same level of expertise in all locations. Wait staff was friendly, knowledgable and prompt.
