Try eating at the bar in a pinch during the lunch rush! – I love PF Changs and have gotten creative to resolve the long waits. If I'm alone @ lunchtime, I eat at the bar. There is usually a stool open, or will open quick due to they are alone and in a rush too! If I'm with friends/family - we ALWAYS make a reservation and check in upon arrival. If the wait is still more than 15 min (can happen on a Saturday night even with a reservation), I'll to into the mall & pass some time. Just be back to the host stand within 15min of your estimated seating time as not to be bumped to someone willing to stand in the lobby for half an hour. My usually way to eat here is dinner at 5-5:15pm. You can usually get a table and just think of it as "linner"!
Great place – The food was good but a little pricey. The ambience was very nice laid back. The wait staff was great. The waitress we had was really friendly and she knew what to recommend.
I'm spoiled, only P F Changs will do! – I see a lot of chinese food snobs have scoffed at the authenticity of the food at Changs. Well I've never been to China, and I never intend to go there either. I am a lifelong fan of "chinese" food, but raised in America I guess my idea of "chinese" food is really americanized asian inspired "chinese" food. If you like my kind of "chinese" food you will love Changs. I don't even bother to get chinese food from anywhere else because everytime I do it's sooo disappointing. The quality of the food at Changs is top notch, no overly breaded mystery meat. Changs spicy chicken is my favorite, but Mongolian Beef and Crispy Honey Chicken/Shrimp are also fantastic. Ooh and lettuce wraps (chicken/vegetarian) are also outstanding. My only complaint is the long wait if you don't have a reservation, plan ahead if you want to eat here.
Amazing Food & Service – While the food alone will keep me coming back, the drinks and the service are also just as good. Everything is ALWAYS consistant, including the fact that they are always busy. While I recommend making a reservation, it is definitely worth it.
Best China Bistro since Hoi Tin. – P.F. chang's China Bistro is the best chinese restaurant that I have been to since Hoi Tin in Downtown Detroit i have recommend this place to all my friend and family. Everything on the menu taste great and the service was the best. I rate this restaurant a 20 on a scale of 1-10. a five star.
Chinese - NOT – This food is anything but Chinese. This is perhaps Asian inspired, but this is yuppie food at its worst. It is overpriced, designed to be unique and interesting, but most Chinese people would probablyu recognize this as American food.
Who Knew Chinese Could Be Gormet? – The Chinese were the first to invent fast food. However this is anything but! I never thought of Chinese food as gormet until I ate at P.F. Chang's. The wait is long but that's because so many people keep coming back! The service is always polite and prompt and the food is delicious. The serving sizes must be taken into account for the price too. Many meals could easily be split between two people they are generous. The atmostphere and flavor will keep me coming back for years. Highly Recommend!!!
Long wait – I called to make a reservation but they seemed to be busy at that time and I was told to call back later and they bluntly hung up.
I finally made a reservation for 1 p.m. on a Saturday but regardless of that I was "told" (not "asked") to wait in a very very rude manner. It took more than half an hour before we were seated.
What was my reservation for?
Try it! – I have been going to this restaurant for years and I've never had a bad meal. The wine is a little pricey but it's always good.
Beyond Wonderful – The key to PF Chang's success is consistency. The food is consistently excellent. The other reviewer had some complaints about service; I can honestly say that I haven't had that experience in the years I've been a patron. The chicken lettuce wraps are perfection. Our other favorites are crab wonton (real crab and very little cream cheese!), Chang's spicy chicken, crispy honey shrimp, and Mongolian beef. The wonderful food makes for a long wait, but get hip: call ahead by 2 or 3 hours and put your name on the seating list. We often show up at the appointed time and are seated mere minutes after our arrival!
