Have heard about P.F. Chang's when I lived in the Palo Alto area, but never managed to get there. This time, on our way home from S.F., decided to try it because it was on the way. Was quite surprised by the experience. The restaurant is in the mall on the end and very easy to get to. Plenty of parking available. For the handicapped, there is a ramp that takes you to the entrance, otherwise there is a short flight of stairs. There is outdoor seating for those who sit outside.
There is a bar area to the left as you enter, with a hostess to greet you and seat you. Our waitress arrived within minutes of our arrival to take our drink orders and they arrived pretty fast -- but given the hour we were there (pre-dinner), it should be expected. I managed to make up my mind pretty fast and got my drink in within the cut off for happy hour, but my husband missed the happy hour pricing.
The menu has both appetizers and ala carte items as well as main courses. In our case we chose items from both. Mine were all the appetizers and ala carte, but my husband chose one item off the main course. We ordered the crab wontons, egg soup, fried rice, long noodles and spring rolls and the main course was the cashew chicken. Everything was served hot to touch, which was a pleasant surprise considering most restaurants tend to bring stuff that has had a chance to cool down. The appetizers came so two people could enjoy, except the soup and long noodles. The cashew chicken was also enough for two people - though my husband wolfed it down with nothing left to share!
Pricing for items appeared to be fair - nothing outrageously expensive. With two drinks and what we ordered, including tip was less than $80. With the bill came the typical fortune cookies.
There were a few items on the menu that were suchi, but not being a fan, did not order. Also, the suchi offered was on the side of the menu with the appetizers. Would not consider this a sushi restaurant given that it is Chinese restaurant.
