WE have been to this restaurant many times for dinner and always enjoyed the Americanized Asian food. The last couple of times we visitedf we have enjoyed happy hour items, including appetizers like potstickers, etc.

Good food, reasonable prices, good location, mostly busy during weekdays. Iove their dynamite shrimp. But, wifey got some allergy last two times. We found out She is not allergic to sea food. Must be some mysterious ingredient. I am fine and my friends are fine too everytime

I had dinner with my extended family tonight at PF Changs in La Jolla. I had really been looking forward to dinner here because this used to be one of my favorite restaurants when I lived in San Diego. The quality of the food has deteriorated since my last visit a couple of years ago and the service was quite... More

Our business group consisted of 14 people, so I get that it's quite large. Food server was a super nice guy and did a great job, so I'm not sure where the disconnect was. I ordered the Kung Pao Dragon Roll and dumplings. Everyone received their food and one other associate ordered the same roll I did and he got... More

We are great fans of PF Changs, so our review maybe biased! We have tried PF Changs at several places around the world and we're extremely excited to dine here during our recent trip to San Diego. We were quite impressed by the ambience of this location and the service was great too. There is hotel parking right next to... More

This is my go to place to make an impression with service and fine food. The varied menu will please even the most discriminating palate. I especially like the lettice wrap appetizers and garlic scrimp. But all the food is prepared fantastic with generous servings with attentive server's.

Good atmosphere, good food and appropriately attentive staff. Well located to the hotel so we could walk but were not chased off by the staff when we stayed a little late.

Went here after we couldn't make a reservation due to traffic. And what a break that turned out to be. They said 35 min wait on busy Friday night. Ended up being about 10 minutes. Got great corner booth to accommodate my son who is currently on crutches. The server was very good. I loved my spicy shrimp. The crap... More

If you like Chinese food, you can find consistently good Chinese food here. The menu is diverse and clearly explains each of the dishes (I find it very irritating when reading a menu at an ethnic restaurant requires me to have a guidebook with me because they don't clearly explain what the dishes are). I especially like their appetizers --... More

The interior has nice elements. It doesn't look like a typical, tacky Asian restaurant. The food is good, although it was not excellent. Ambiance is nice and great for both hanging out with friends or lunch/dinner with family. I like the dumplings and street noodles. There are good choices on the menu.
