Been a customer for many years and they never seem to disappoint. Even through this pandemic they have gone up and beyond to keep the food hot and the atmosphere clean. This location is quick and easy to navigate.

We were on our way, it’s 30 mins to get there. And I received a call from a young lady who said due to weather conditions they were closing at 730 but it wasn’t raining or snowing or anything! Then my boyfriend called and a gentleman told him they closed at 7pm. So I am confused as to which time they actually closed! We ended up going to the Cheesecake Factory in the exact same strip, everyone else was open!

The lettuce wraps and one order of Crispy Honey chicken were fine, but the sauce on the three orders of Chang's Spicy Chicken seemed different (in a bad way), and the inside of my chicken wasn't warm in some pieces. Even though the waitress was nice, I'd rate her slightly
below average. She greeted us in a timely manner, kept drinks refilled, but, for a restaurant that was at 50% capacity, we had to wait at times (for boxes, check), so I don't think service wouldn't have been very good outside of COVID-19 pandemic. For $100 + tip for four people, it's pretty expensive.

Walked in and wasn’t greeted , had to ask for assistance at the take out counter only for one of the team members who stood their watching us enter and wait for the host .... to be the host. He seemed very uninterested in his job and didn’t property greet or seat us. Once we arrived to our table the floor was disgusting and table wasn’t cleaned throughly. During times like this with COVID this was a major turn off. Our server was in training so I won’t go much into details about that. He wasn’t terrible just not enthused and seemed nervous , but was nice. The food was okay overall. I’ve e had better experiences at this location but was not enthused this trip around. I’m not sure if the lack of service stemmed from the age and race of my date and I , but consistent service should be extended to ALL guest

Portion sizes are small for the cost compared to many Chinese restaurants in the area. Generally I have tons of leftovers when I get Chinese food but never when I go to PF Chang. Food is tasty and service is always good.

The server staff was excellent. Attentive but not intrusive. They covered everything like a smooth oiled machine.
My friend frequent this entailment and was rather satisfied with the food and wine. I found the wine selection to be very meager and none of which of chatter and quality. I tried the Singapore Street Noodles, one to compare it to the meals I’d had in Singapore and second because it was one of the very few gluten free options. Large chains, specifically ones serving orientalist options should easily be able to do so. My meal was acceptable, but not noteworthy. Overall, the expense was fine. The staff made it nice. I understand that we are going through this very difficult time and things are having to be trimmed back, but what your server should excel. Best of luck getting through all of this COVID stuff. Push a little harder and work on your offerings. Cheers!

We had gone to this location on several times in the past. On this visit things had changed. We were greeted when we arrived. Members of our party had already arrived. We were shown to the bar where they were seated. We were served our drinks slowly. We then went to our reserved booth. Our server came by and began our order. The food arrived slowly. The food was cold. The drinks were undrinkable. We sent our drinks back at least 3 times as they were not prepared to order. We sent some food items back as they were the wrong items. Some entrees were cold when they arrived. To conclude as I stated we had dined here previously. On this visit things had fell apart. We may or may not visit this location again.

It is not the best chain restaurant. They no longer have the good sauces for the chicken wraps. The shrimp tasted fishy and the beef tasted gamey which means it was not stored properly.

First of all I want to say that I love PF Changs Food, Ambiance, and front end staff (door greeters & seaters)
My Husband and I reserved a table and was seated promptly. Our Server Josh was one of the WORST servers I have ever had. He seemed flustered and Nervous and seemed quite frankly annoyed with us. To make a VERY long story short...He failed to bring us Dinner plates, my husband white rice ( I got brown). When we flagged him down he ran to get it and never came back! Another Waiter must of been watching us and came over and asked us if everything was ok. He promptly went and got my Husband a bowl of rice, extra napkins, and our Dinner plates so we could eat our NOW COLD ENTREES!! JOSH checked on his other tables Several times near us....but didn't come back until he saw all the dishes piled up on our table. NEVER asked if we wanted Dessert or anything else! We Always get desserts!!!
When we left....I saw the nice young man who helped us earlier and I gave him Josh's tip! He deserved it!! My Husband left Josh $1! We always tip very well. This is a FIRST!!!

We tried the Year of Pig cocktails which were very good. We had two appetizers: the crab wonton which was crispy on the outside and had great flavor. We also had the pan fried potstickers which is always a favorite of ours. Our entrees included the beef lo mein, the noodles are thin but excellent and the veggies are crisp. The second entree was the honey shrimp which was delicious. We always enjoy what we order when we come here.

Way too noisy. Waitress very friendly and helpful except it took several minutes to get our check after requested. Mongolian beef very chewy, not much flavor. Did like the Asian Pear Mojito.
Probably won’t return.

We ate dinner on a Saturday evening, so I knew the restaurant would be busy. Totally okay with that. What I am not okay with was the poor service that I received. We ordered an appetizer, sushi roll, and three entrees to split. I ordered a martini and received no olives with the drink. The waiter was nowhere to be found so I walked to the bar myself and requested them. The appetizer was served and then the entrees came out. They forgot to bring out the sushi roll or the sucky waiter didn't put the order in. One entree was to have pork and pork only. They brought out one of the entress (Lo Mein) with chicken, beef, and shrimp. The food runner said it could be someone else's order and wanted to know if we ate from it. I guess they wanted to pass it off to another table. Gross. The sucky waiter came over and said, whoops my bad, I'll comp it for you if you keep it. We kept it.....and when the bill came he never took it off the bill. The manager (Asian guy) was too busy setting up tables to come around and chat with paying customers. We paid and got the heck out. Won't return. Awful service. Too loud and overpriced. This was one of the worst dining experiences I've had in some time. The only thing good about it was the food itself.

It was very , very crowded and everyone on the staff were very busy. I think that’s the reason it was kind of impersonal. Although, they were nice to us. We came a few minutes before our scheduled time and were told we couldn’t get seated. For a few reasons, we left, but then came back and waited about 10 minutes. The service was okay. Jasmine was very pleasant, but it took a long time. The food was just average. Not bad, not great. We would go back, but not on a Saturday night!

I was quite disappointed actually. I visited the P.F. Chang’s frequently in ARLINGTON VA when I lived there, and it was always extremely nice and upscale - given the high price of the food it *should be an upscale experience. This P.F. Chang’s in Columbia was certainly not upscale. It was noisy, the floor was filthy, and worse went unswept by the staff the entire time we sat through dinner. There were cleaning supplies left in the customer area, and a tray of bussed dishes sat in the dining area the whole time we were there - it must have been passed by they hostesses, servers, and other staff five or six dozen times, and it was still there when we left. I have a ridiculous amount of experience in restaurant service, and this screamed poor management to me - no one was trained properly, no one took care in their working space, and no one went through the restaurant to make sure the dining room was in a proper condition. For the price PF Chang’s charges for it Chinese food it was wholly unacceptable. I mean, seriously, why go back when it costs so much and your sitting in a filthy space? I know Friday’s are incredibly busy, but these were things that should never have happened. I’m sorry to badmouth a restaurant, especially when the food is still pretty good, but it is what it is...
