PF Chang's China Bistro is a beautiful place! The decor is stunning. The wait staff is accomodating and personable, too bad the food is awful. We started our meal with shrimp potstickers and fried String beans. The goo on the inside of the potstickers did not taste like it had been cooked all the way, however the fried string beans were tasty. Our entrees included the Kung Pao chicken, Mu shu chicken and spicy stir fried egg plant. The Kung pao chicken was super salty and dry and lacked any real flavor besides the soy sauce. We could see the chilli pods in the dish, however we tasted no spice. The mu shu chicken was served with flour tortillas (instead of the typical pancakes). It looked as it someone dumped a bag of precut cabbage slaw mix with some leftover chicken. It tasted like 'assembly food'--the type of food you would find on a dollar menu of a fast food chain, not a restaurant. The stir fry sauce came from a can or jar--something along the quality of La Choy. The egg plant tasted like a frozen product--left in the freezer too long--it had a 'freezer burn' taste topped with a tasteless 'plastic sauce'. We asked for the dish to be done again because it also lacked spice (as described in the menu). The redone dish was exactly like the first and we could not eat it--which confirmed my theory--it was probably a frozen product with a sauce packet, microwaved and served. I have had a few things in the past, like the lettuce wraps, soups, spring rolls, mixed drinks and they were not bad--not great but not bad. The dinner selections have been consistantly sad or mediocre at best. We ate here nearly 2 years ago and decided to give it another try. We are not coming back. I think if you are are the type that does not like food that is too exotic and you are out with friends for cocktails and munchies, then this may be an okay place to try. If you want decent chinese fare, go someplace else. Trust me, Panda Express is better...
Pros: Beautiful place, great location
Cons: Bad food--really really bad food
