                              I'm such a sucker for PF chengs! The food is great and so is the service. I love Broadway plaza and It's awesome to have a place with an amazing affordable happy hour.

                              I was an event planner for a recent 21 year old's 3 day event including the last night having dinner at P.F. Chang's in Walnut Creek. The guest of honor (Blake) and myself came into the restaurant a few weeks before the event and were

                              Food was pleasant and predictable. Knowledge of wait staff on food and condiments is a crapshoot -- some are knowledgeable, many are not. Drinks are overpriced, hard and soft.

                              Having been there several times, at different times of the day, there is always a wait for a table. The decor is impressive. It is also unfriendly for those who enjoy conversation -- too many hard, reflective surfaces. I was forced to raise my voice to be heard by those sitting next to me, and talking across the table required ,e to nearly shout.

                              If you want good Chinese food and an atmosphere conducive to conversation, try Yan's on North Main.

                              I went to this P.F. Changs a few times in July and August, and the hostess could careless who walked through the door. I went in twice in the pass two weeks and I see a complete change of hostess. New faces and new attitudes, I did wait awhile the first night (I did request booth though), but the girls were sweet. One girl actually bused the booth for me and apologize for the wait. Granted I could have taken a table. The servers seem really busy, but I was greeted in less then a minute. I was really happy and I enjoy my dinner very much. The second time I went, I took a couple of friends. there was a wait but I didn't mind because my friends and I were waiting for one more. The hostess gave me a the pager and said she'll page me as soon as possible. On top of that it was the same hostess that cleaned the booth for me last time and she REMEMBERED ME! AND GUESS WHAT! She cleaned me another booth and showed me there new items to their menu and told me which ones she liked, then my server greeted me in a minute or so, but they were very busy.
                              I love their FOOD, I Love the Service, I love the atmosphere even though it's loud. The restaurant can't help it if the guest are talking, there has to be over 200 bodies in there. I am defiantly coming back again, but maybe in a couple weeks from now. ^_^

                              BTW, If you're going out, go out happy. No use of you going out upset, you are just going to piss others off and get more upset.

                              Took the wife shopping at Nordstrom last friday. She wanted to eat at P.F. Changs afterwards. I was reluctant because i have heard from several close friends that the service was awful. The wife persisted and i gave in. Upon entering we were ignored by three hostess that felt their conversation was more important than saying hello. This seemed a bit strange but expected since they looked about the same age as our 17 year old daughter. After a 40 min wait we walked to our table. The tables around us were full but i could not help notice the many empty dirty tables along the way(maybe thats why the wait is so long?). To my surprise we were immediately greeted by the first smiling face upon entering the building. Our server Ian, seemed genuinely happy to see us and made us feel at ease. He told us all his favorite dishes, two of which we decided to order. The drinks and appetizers came right away. We only got two pieces of lettuce with our lettuce wrap and just as my wife was grabbing for the last piece Ian arrived with more. Our waters were never less than half full, and before i even noticed we were out of rice Ian had brought another bowl. Usually at these types of restaurants the service is so scripted and insincere it makes me cringe. This was NOT the case here. Im telling all my friends they need to give this restaurant another chance. Great tasting food and even better service. The front desk could have been more polite, then again maybe they were just having a bad day.

                              Pros: Great servers, good food, good specialty drinks.

                              Cons: Dirty bathrooms, indifferent host staff.

                              I went to the Walnut Creek PF Chang's with my Mom for lunch one day. I took her there because I wanted to see if this PF Changs is as bad as the one in Nashville, Tennessee.


                              Well, the verdict is in. It's just as bad and in an inexcusible way because we are in the bay area here, people! It's not hard to find good, decent Chinese food and there's no reaon for this PF Chang to be so popular when it produces such mediocre food.


                              My mom order some sort of noodle with shrimp. The texture was off and it was too oily. I ordered some sort of veggie thing which was nothing to write home about.


                              What I found oddly entertaining was the waitress (Caucasian) offering to mix up the special "sauces" that were at our table for us. She must've been in her mid-teens, hardly a credible authority on Chinese cuisine, but she was trying to convince me and my mom that this was some traditional Asian thing.

                              Would not be going back again. Mr. Chang must be laughing all the way to the bank.

I went to this restaurant with my family and had a great time. There can be long waits but I would suggest making reservations. Try the Mongolian Beef, its delicious!

                              Even though we had made a reservation for 9:30, we were not seated until 10:15. The restaurant was very loud and made it very difficult to have a conversation. The food came fairly quickly, but we did have to wait 20 minutes for water. Out of 5 dishes, 3 were salty to the point of being inedible. The rest of the food was marginal. It is mystifying to me that such a terrible restaurant would get such wonderful reviews and would be as packed as it was when I ate there.

                              Sometimes, the service is slow but it depends on how busy it is and the number of servers working. Other than that, the service is great! The food that they have is delicious, and the staff is very friendly to accompany any and all of their customer's needs. The atmosphere is very calm with the dim lighting and the decorations they have around the restaurant.

                              1. BEST CRAB WONTONS IN BAY AREA! I must get the crab wontons EVERY time I go here. Sometimes me and my honey go sit at the bar and order crab wontons only when we want a snack.
                              2. Service is ALWAYS quick & NEVER gotten bad service!

                              1. Wait is ridiculous--10 minutes to 2 hours depending on the time of day. At least PF now allows call-in reservations which is highly recommended if you are coming from out of town. Nice thing is that PF is located in broadway plaza, you can shop while you wait! Now, to me, thats cool, cuz I love to browse and shop. Sorry, but there is only one con for PF Changs.

                              I highly recommend you to eat here. :) This is coming from someone who has been to PF about 50 times since it opened. ENjoY!

                              First, we ordered the mushu chicken, the waitress said that there was a disclaimer from the management: "I wanted to let you know that 99% of the Mushu chicken is cabbage. Do you still want to order this dish?" We said sure. Second, ten minutes later, she returned to let us know they ran out of the powder to make a tapioca drink that I ordered. I said, okay. Half way through the meal, my friend sees another waitress carrying out a tapioca drink to another customer. We inquired our waitress about the drink and she placed the order again. She returned to say that she can't place the order because "the computer" is preventing her from placing the order. She told us we could go look at the computer for proof. We said no. The food is fair, but the service was really odd. I will never go back.

                              Pros: good parking, inexpensive

                              Cons: better service

                              When PF Chang's first opened we were hopeful that we had finally found a chinese restaurant that used fresh ingredients without overflavoring the dishes. After dining several times at the WC restaurant (10-12 times; we REALLY wanted to like this place) we have come to the conclusion that the food is mediocre to bad and the seating staff is horrible. The hostesses (snot-nosed, snooty kids) are rude and unfriendly, although we were treated well be the servers. Overall, though, this surprisingly popular (are Walnut Creekians that desperate?) restaurant is for the birds (although the overly spiced food may not even appeal to them)...hence P.U. Chang's.
