Understand every place is short staffed right now but three hours from being sat to getting check is less than ideal.

The food was great. The restaurant was very nice (but cold). Our waitress was very nice, but she was very slow at returning to bring things that I asked for (lemon for water, refill on water). She actually went and took the order at a table of eight before returning with the water refill that I asked for beforehand. Otherwise, the experience was great.

1st visit to this location and it was a great experience, from the genuine friendly greeting by the hostess, and greeting and service by our he Server.. He was great from start to finish.. Made great suggestions, friendly answered our questions as we were not familiar with some of the preparations.. Look forward to the next visit when in the area. Deb and Bill Schmidt, Wmsburg

The food was great. The waiter was very nice and he was extremely busy. He was waiting on most of the tables on the side we were seated. He did the best he could and I did feel bad for him. The music was too loud and was a bit nerve wrecking.

PF has always been one of my favorite places to eat. Stopped going for a while because of the drop in service and quality of food. They have revamped some things and serve the food nice and hot. I’ve gone twice in the past two weeks because it was so good!

We had two servers helping our table, but it still took a while to get water before/during the meal. Two of the meals were requested without sauce, but came sauced. It took so long for a server to check on the table that we just ate the food. We didn’t want to make the rest of the party wait or make a big deal when we were having an early Mother’s Day lunch. It was our first time dining at PF Changs in a few years after a previously poor experience. I do not think we will be returning anytime soon.

Our original waiter was busy so one of the managers waited on our table most of the evening. I believe her name was Alyssa. She was excellent and most attentive. I understand why she was put in a leadership role. The food was delicious but my portion of Mongolian Beef was much smaller than it has been in previous visits. Was curious if there was a new chef?

Food was ok but service was not great. Getting server to take drink order was late, then drinks didn’t get to the table for another 10 minutes. Appetizer came out after entree, and no real apologies.

It took over an hour and a half to receive our meal after placing the order. It took 15-20min to get our hot tea and the meat came out extremely dry on my entree. Leading me to believe it had spent a considerable amount of time under a heat lamp.

The food as usual was delicious and the service was what you might expect on a busy night. My issue was with the restaurant not seeing our reservation at all in their system. I showed the hostess the confirmation and she commented they have issues with OpenTable and reservations not showing all the time. We waited just as if we had just arrived there. If the location did have meaningful significance for our anniversary we would have left. If there’s common issues known by the restaurant why would they not work to fix w Open Table or try to make customers feel like they’re more empathetic?

We were told when we sat down that it may take a while to get our food. We were not in a hurry, so we said that was fine and ordered some drinks and an appetizer. The appetizer came out in a timely fashion, but we then waited over an hour for our entrees. I do not know what was happening, but we were really annoyed by the time the food came. Tables all around us were extremely upset and one table left before getting their entree. Not once did I see anyone from the management team helping out or apologizing to anyone. We will not be going back. This place is poorly run.

What good is a reservation if even after 22 minutes all they can do is say waiting for people to leave. The hostess stand seemed very disorganized and we took our name off the list and left. If you can't honor reservations don't take them!

I cannot hold one bad experience against the restaurant. Our server was very friendly, the food was good and the atmosphere was P.F. Chang. It was a Saturday night and we had a reservation but waited 20 minutes because no one had cleaned the table that they had slated for us. The food came out in batches vice at one time and we had to wait to get our servers attention and ask for rice, which was a part of the meal and generally is served first so that you can layer on top. Delay in getting dessert and the bill made for a later evening than planned.

Went to have a dinner with my daughter last Friday. And when I got there on time after my reservation from this site. I was told they don’t take reservations from open table and I had to wait 45min for my food. Food came out horrible but I had somewhere to be so so just ate it😩. I WILL never go back to this location again. And probably the restaurant chain as a whole. Worse experience ever! The hostess at the front desk was rude and literally forgot we were waiting on a table.

Lettuce that was served with lettuce wraps was the hard white part no green leaves to even wrap. Had to eat the filling with a fork. Ordered Surf & Turf and it was horrible. Filet came out in tiny pieces. Seafood had no taste.

I really enjoy going to another PF Changs for the good food. The last 3 times that I dined in the Newport New location, we have waited about 10 to 15 mins before a server came to table. If I didn't like PF Changs some much, I would have walked out. The service really needs to improve.
