Do get the roast crab, chicken wings, garlic noodles, rare beef salad.

Don't sit upstairs....I've been there a few times and the last visit I got a table upstairs. It took a long time before you can even see a waiter walk by. I think they'll only come upstairs if they were bringing you your dishes. Small problem for reasonably priced food! =D

Oh parking is horrible.....expect to pound your head on the steering wheel a few times when you see an open space but can't get to it on time....

After reading reviews about how horrible the service was but how they had awesome crabs, we went prepared for bad service. We went a little early, 6:30pm, before the crowd got in. We got seated promptly and had fantastic service all

We were excited to have our party here. I reserved it in advance, placed my menu order/made my deposit. Everything seemed to be falling into place. Two days before the party, a simple request made by me and customer service from the restaurant plummets from a 5 to zero (on a 1-10 scale). Their way of running a restaurant is unethical. There are undisclosed fees that change on a sliding scale. 2 liter sodas cost $8 per bottle! Their claim that parties require a lot of extra labor in the kitchen and extra wait staff are untrue and BS because we had all of ONE server for our party. There were times when he disappeared, leaving us to serve ourselves. We should have knocked off the service charge on the final bill, which did not reflect the correct amount either because they neglected to deduct my deposit. When we arrived in the party room, there were dirty dishes on the table and back counter. At serving time, we were given a stack of dirty ??clean? dishes to eat off of. I have to say that the food was so-so. I wasn??t the first to eat but the food was cold and the flavors were not how it should have been. Customer service here is non-existent. I was not greeted at the beginning, just given dirty looks, and definitely not thanked at the end for having my party here. I must have been dealing with the owners because they had a certain air of arrogance the whole time. They must think that they don??t need your business because some other sucker will come along. Well, I am a sucker no more!

What ever happened to customer service?Keep in mind that I was not asking for a discount or for anything free.I was surprised by the proposed bill for 40 adults,$1000.00 (food, tax, gratuity).They charge $8 for a 2 liter soda!Nonetheless,I

Don't wait go. Just go. Had the roasted spicy crab. Loved it. Garlic noodles. Amaizing. The wait was a little long because people were just sitting there happily enjoying their crab bloat. The host took our order before we were

Pros: Crab, Garlic noodles, Crab bib

The Dungeness Crab specialties cannot be beat... Roasted Crab with garlic, Peppercorn Crab with garlic, Drunken Crab simmered in wine... it's all great. You must order the House Garlic Noodles -- a dish you will forever dream about once

Pros: Delicious Crab and the best Garlic Noodles on the planet, Parking Lot a block away

Nice atmosphere, and good food. Peppercorn crab and a bottle of chardonney is the way to dine. Parking is a little difficult, so arrive early. Must try.

If you're okay with forgoing ambiance for just good vietnamese food. Think PPQ. CRAB, garlic noodles, green beans - this place is so delicous and so fabulously priced. Think crustacean or thanh long minus 1/2 the cost! Seriously, this

I went on a friend's recommendation. The promptness of seating could have been better. There were vacant tables waiting to be cleared and reset--not enough wait staff, maybe? My biggest gripe is that service was bad. We waited at least 20

I'm always on the hunt for a good Vietnamese restaurant. I love the flavors of Crustacean, but the garlic noodles are just a little too greasy for me. We stumbled into PPQ a couple of months ago- we were starved, wanted Vietnamese food

For my birthday last week, I had the peppercorn crab for two meal - the crab was roasted just right in a bed of toasted garlic that was so crisp we kept sprinkling it into our noodles. The spring rolls were non-greasy and light. The salad

Dungeness Crab is not a traditional Vietnamese dish, but given the crowds of shell-cracking diners at PPQ Dungeness Island, you wouldn't know it. PPQ specializes in Dungeness, offering it in five different sauces. The name is derived from…
