The Mongolian beef was a bit chewy which lowered the rating.

This place lost its mojo. Freezing cold, bad food, emtpty tables with dirty dishes. I give them 3-6 mo to go bust.

The food was somewhat better than that at an average Chinese restaurant. The service was fairly attentive, and our orders arrived promptly. The restaurant was freezing the night we ate there. It was a cold, windy night, and one of the exterior doors was propped open. The inside doors were closed, but that didn't seem to help. None of the waitstaff and none of the women working at the desk wore masks.

High quality southeast Asian cuisine with nice ambience and great attention to detail. My order of the Peking Duck was perfectly prepared, and there are many other great items to choose from, both from the appetizers and main menu.

The food was as good as always, but the service was not very impressive. Last visit, the server forgot my wife’s food, so we shared our food before the server admitted that he forgot. The manager showed up to say hi, but did nothing about messing up a simple order. She shouldn’t have bothered stopping by.
Yesterday’s visit, the service was very bad and I asked for a sauce (the one that comes with the crispy beans) 3 times and she never brought it. Simple request. Water refills were non existent. Another simple task. Manager stopped by to say a very uninterested hello, and walked away. Didn’t look like he wanted to be there. I never leave less than 20% tip but this time I had to make an exception and left 15%.
Will we ever go again? Probably, but only because I like the Mongolian Beef.

I would give negative stars if possible. They were busy but I had a 6:30 reservation. I checked in at 6:25 and was OK waiting a bit. That was until someone with a 7:00 reservation checked in at 6:45. They were seated at 7:05 while I was still waiting. I was told that reservations were for specific tables and since the table they had decided to give to me was taking longer there was nothing they could do. They were incapable of adjusting - something every other restaurant in the world can do. They offered NOTHING in return other than saying sorry. Complete incompetence. The wait staff was almost as incapable. We ordered hot tea and water to drink. After delivery, we heard nothing for 10 minutes, during which time our water and tea were empty. Then when they finally did show up we had to ask for refills specifically.
The food was adequate, good but not great, nothing special. I'll never return to that location and maybe never to another PF Changs again if that's how they do business.

We love PF Chang’s but for the 2 bd time in a row, after making a reservation, the reception desk seemed totally confused. Both times they forgot to check us in and we ended up waiting. Finally after seeing people arriving after us, we questioned them.
They said it was ready but being sanitized. 15 minutes later we again asked about our table. 3 people at checkin and no one knew what was going on. Finally the manager stepped in and got us a table ( not the area we requested ) but we were starving.
They can do better.

I don’t understand having rules that the restaurant needs to be have empty then have 30 min wait on a reservation and every one piled up in the lobby waiting for their name to be called. The service and food was good once we made it in.

We used to be big fans of PF Chang’s. We would have dinner there about 1 to 2 times per week. After a couple of bad experiences, we decided not to go there any longer. Last not we decided to give it another try. We ordered curb side. Two of the four entrees that we order were horrible (orange chicken and the pepper steak).

Server was inaudible. Time between ordering and food delivery was way too long. Delay in some food items which resulted in them not being delivered. Overall have had too many issues with this location. Will no longer be visiting or ordering from here.

Well, the day us in a two person table that shares an entire bench with other tables. The tables were too close together for anyone other than someone who’s tall and skinny. Our food came out before our appetizers, and my cauliflower had chicken in it. Not a good trip this time.

The food is consistently good, and typically the service matches that. This visit was not typical. Our server seemed distracted at best & possibly disinterested. The placement of the tables is so congested that you can’t walk between them without disturbing other diners, or being disturbed by people being seated or leaving. We waited for almost 30 minutes for our appetizer, and our server almost never checked on us. Hopefully this was a one-off type of visit, and not a management change.

This is one of my favorite restaurants to go to normally there are no problems however we made the reservations for 630 we’re not seated till 7PM. We were put it at a table where servers and other people kept knocking into my husband while he was trying to eat , The noise level in there was so loud my husband , myself and the server had to shout so we could hear what the other person is saying . Appetizers came out nice and warm except my extra sauce for ribs ( Ice Cold ) at this point I did not send it back because do you remember the food itself was warm and it was getting late. Main meal came out no problems with that. The only thing that our server was quick with is bringing us a check took leftovers home to have next day.
