We love PF Chang's and have been here plenty of times. Our concerns this time were beyond horrible. All of the food came out at different times, food was wrong and somewhat cold, some food was forgotten and our server never cleaned the table unless I said we need more room as things came out. They never had a manager stop by and tried to offer free desert for issues with service the kitchen the food and overall treatment. Not happy at all and may never go back.

Could there be a more overrated restaurant anywhere? After having to wait ten minutes for a table (and that was WITH a reservation), we were shoe-horned into what has to be one of the smallest tables for two ever dreamed up by the fevered imagination of a corprate bean counter. The food was tasteless and unimaginative even before it was oversalted and overcooked.

My advice: avoid this place. Providence is a wonderful restaurant town. Don't waste your money at this disgraceful excuse for a restaurant.

While our meal was excellent as always, we were disappointed with our waitress. She brought our wine and left it to us to pour it in our glasses. She came by once at the end of our entrees to see how we were doing. We wouldn't mind if the restaurant was crowded - so she did not have an abundance of customers. As noted, this lack of service was unusual so we wu be back.

Visited the first time for my boyfriends birthday because we received a gift card. Went on a Sunday night at 7pm and it was very quiet. Ordered the calamari, tuna roll, and steamed dumplings, both ramens for entrees, and the banana wonton dessert. Everything was amazing, although I did wish the ramen had more layers of flavor. Our server was very attentive and the restaurant seemed clean and well decorated. Would definitely go back.

Service was good on a busy Friday night before the PC-Butler Basketball Game. The entrees of Mongolian Beef and Beef LoMein were excellent but in lesser amounts than previously. However, two disappointments: First the bar doesn’t stock Seagram whiskey products and the second and more disappointing matter, was the quality and quantity of one of their signature appetizers, the chicken lettuce wrap. Small lettuce leaves, sparse chicken, and no sauce at all for a cost of $10.50.
We will not even consider the lettuce wraps again and hopefully the same changes are not applied to other signature appetizers or entries. Little changes make a huge difference in the highly competitive RI restaurant business.

PFs is bona fide American Comfort Food. Lettuce rolls have entered the vocabulary. This is one place you can take your mother or your date or the date your partner doesn’t know about and it all woks.

National and International chain restaurants are usually successful due to their consistency. This PF Chang's in Providence is hit or miss.

Last time I ate there.....I showed up with my Open Table reservation and got seated (but my Open Table points did not get credited !!!! - It took 2 phone calls the day after to finally get them taken care of......).
Several people passed by me for about 10 minutes, no one said, I will be right with you, no greeting, no smile, nothing. The main dining area only had about 10 tables with about 2 guests per table average...so it was not really busy at all......

Eventually my waitress came, I placed the order and got my meal. The lady that looks like the manager never came to see how the meal was nor I saw her checking on other tables. The food was good, but the chicken lettuce wrap now has like 90% fried noodles and just a light topping of minced chicken..... When I got my check, no fortune cookies. I had to get them myself on my way out........

Sometimes the service is good, sometimes it lacks.... Overall customer service training would make this location a much better franchise.

PF Chang’s continues to change their menu often eliminating our favorites. We tried some of the newer items and found them mediocre in flavor and quality. The calamari was over breaded and chewy. The bulgogi Steak and shrimp with lobster sauce were unremarkable.

We booked a week in advance and upon arrival had a really poor experience. The host stated ‘oh you made a reservation? On what open table?’ Then she asked us to just sit at the community table (not 6 seats) since they don’t check open table for reservations. Our server was awesome, food was fine but when you have tickets to attend something and plan ahead only to find out they don’t honor them was super disappointing. They ended up craning 6 adults at a table for 4. If we didn’t need to eat we would have skipped. Not recommended.

Quality of food very poor for price. Honey Crisp Chicken is basically all batter & minuscule amount chicken. Wonton Soup flavorless & wontons chewy. Don’t expect a lot from chain restaurants, but this was pretty sad, primarily because of the cost & the very poor quality of food.

Not the best meal I have ever had there. Not sure what it was but the food was bland. We've had the same items in the past at other PF Chang's and I believe, this one as well. And then after the meal was over (four of us) i dropped $120 plus tip on a meal that I didn't enjoy. Sad. Might be a long time till I go back.

Service was fine but food mediocre. While the appetizer was tasty it was deceiving thinking it was all shrimp but was only on top of a pile of fresh but dry coleslaw. Needs more sauce. Asked for appetizer then entree afterwards because I instilled that I like my food piping hot. Unfortunately, it arrived barely warm, thought it sat in back while we were eating wraps. They also ran out of the peanut teriyaki sauce. Entree was loaded with scallions and the beef was overcooked and also needed more sauce. Luckily I asked for the trio sauces to spice it up. Kinda disappointed.

Today, my waitress Jalissa was friendly, caring and warm. I asked the manager and she has only been with the restaurant for about 10 days, but whomever trained her...did a good job...I also think she has good work ethic and values. Very pleasant service experience. The food was perfect. Lots of lettuce leaves for my chicken filling.

The service was good, but the restaurant and the food were not.

I was seated by the window at a high top, and there were carpet and rug remnants right behind my chair, they looked kind of dirty and unkept.

The orange peel chicken was flat and looked mushed (you can see a picture of the orange peel chicken that I took in 2018 and that looked really good...this last visit, it was not good...the visual appeal and the taste were lacking). The white rice was dry...dry...dry... The quality of a Chinese restaurant is highly measured by the quality of the rice served...the last few times I've been to PF Chang's the quality of the rice has been POOR. C'mmon,,,,just add some more water to make it fluffy and moist...not a big challenge.

The Chicken fried rice was good....the star of the meal.

This chain is usually good, the last visits I've had have not been good...there's a chance for improvement....

Had a 6:15pm reservation. Made through open table. When we checked in hostest couldn't find the reservation. I showed her the open table confirmation. She said "oh its busy and we dont check that much". Then said she would add us to the wait list and it would be 5 to 10 min wait. After 45 min of waiting, found out she never check me in and never put me on the list to be seated. Left without eat or the situation being resolved by management.

I ordered the poke bowl on the waiter’s suggestion. (I was deciding between the lettuce wraps and the poke bowl.) The avocado was hard and unripe with no flavor at all. The cucumbers were rancid. I wouldn’t order the poke bowl ever again. My son ordered the filet and asked to replace The potatoes with fried rice. We were told there would be an upcharge. The potatoes were not on his plate and instead he received a side order of fried rice. When the bill came, we were not up charged for the fried rice, but instead we were charged full price for a side of fried rice. Disappointing and overpriced.

Fairly crowded but seated quickly. Server seemed pleasant and took our drink order. Returned for food order. Food brought timely, but was very poor quality - hard fried and tasteless egg rolls, Sweet Honey shrimp had heavy batter with most shrimp stuck together when served, and Mongolian beef appetizer that appeared straight from the freezer to a fryer - overcooked and tasteless. Server never came back after taking our order. Tried to flag her down to get water without success. Finally showed up with the check after 30-40 minutes. Very poor and dissappointing.

We have been here 2-3 times .Our experiences have always been very good, but this experience was not positive, many smaller things that added up to a frustrating experience.We were the only people seated at the upper level dining room at first. I decided on ordering the "House Made Ginger Beer" described as Freshly juiced ginger root, lemon juice mixed with pure cane sugar. I asked to make sure if there was anything carbonated added. He went to double check and told me yes , it was topped off with it. I asked if I could get it without it and was told it was strong, and if they did not put the soda (that was not listed in the drink) that it would only be partially full. I was very frustrated it was not as described and that there was no attempt to offer options. I got water (Loss sale).In the menu it says that dishes are served family style . We got our chicken egg rolls which were excellent , with two small plates. When the two main dishes came he placed them in front of each of us,we had to ask for plates. One of the items we got was the ginger chicken and broccoli . Chicken was excellent. Although we realize the broccoli should be crisp, we literally could not stick our fork in it. We did tell the server , but did decide to keep and take home due to (now) time constraints and food waste.We had decided to have the banana egg rolls for dessert, having had them before, and liking them. It is a messy dish--meant for sharing, and again we did not get small plates. Could not because he was now busy with other tables. Also we asked for tea for after dinner. We were told there was only green, flavored oolong and flavored black. No traditional black tea. Maybe they don't serve coffee either. We had redeemed OT points to and had the certificate. He came back and told us he could not get it through and the manager was busy and we would have to use it another time/place. We explained it was only good for there and he did go back and the manager and they processed it.
