We needed a restaurant that was truly GF (I'm celiac) and truly kid-friendly (my daughter and I were crossing the entirety of the state en route to Vermont, and my 2- and 4-year old grankids were along for the ride). P.F. Chang's appears on everyone's list. I admit, my ginger chicken and broccoli tasted pretty good, and I did not suffer any ill effects. However, it took over an hour for us to be served, and that's asking a lot of such young children (or anyone). Though they provide a cute paper mat for coloring (and crayons), they don't offer anything in the way of kid-sized cutlery or bowls; the kids were expected to use some of the largest, heaviest forks I've ever seen at a restaurant! Not quite sure why we were left in limbo for so long -- no explanation for the endless wait was provided -- but we would never, ever return.
Have not ever gotten sick, but the quality of food can very. Sometimes it's great, sometimes you can tell they forgot a major component - like GF soy sauce. The last time we went in May, they seemed to be back on track. They recently got rid of their GF lemon chicken, which is a bummer!
Delicious. Huge amount of food. Didn't make me sick either!
Quality and cleanliness seem to be a bit lacking lately. Servers are hit and miss but seriously not of the same caliber as a few years ago. Went for my birthday and was brought the bill before we could even ask for desert. Oh well Ted Drewes needs to be visited any how.
Had a wonderful GF dinner with exceptional service!
I like this place a lot. I have eaten here way more gluten free than I ever did before. The one thing that gets me is the gf plate thing. Sometimes I get a different type of plate and sometimes I don't. This is horrifying and they always tell me it's gluten free. I'm not sure what this is about. I have not had a gluten reaction here, and the waitstaff seems very knowledgeable. Their beef dishes are so good. The lettuce wraps to die for. The egg drop soup is good. The only thing I haven't liked was that chocolate dome.
I accidentally got a rice noodle in my food and the manager, Jeff, and the owner, Frank took the time to talk to me about how dedicated they are to keeping their kitchen free from cross contamination. Frank has read multiple books on Celiac disease to understand how gluten and cross contamination affects us and that really impressed me. They treated me very kindly and took care of our check and also gave us a gift card. I highly recommend P.F. Chang's and especially the Chattanooga, TN location.
Love this place. All the GF options taste just like the real ones, and I ask my friends/family to order the GF version of their meal so we can all share. The GF food is served on different looking plates as well, which makes me feel safe when I see it brought to the table!
Gluten-free is a separate section of their regular menu. They have gf soy sauce. They will prepare any order in a separate area. They have special plates and red condiment ramekins that are all gf only. They have one dessert, a chocolate ganache with berries and raspberry sauce. It is very rich, and it is plenty for two or three.
They have, thusfar, the biggest gf selection I have encountered in Wichita. Sure, they are a bit on the pricey side (about $50 after tip for two entrees and dessert), but the portions if you order noodles or fried rice are generous and will last two meals for my average appetite, so it felt like a reasonable value. They accidentally brought out the wrong order at first, so I got to try the lettuce wraps for free and quickly got my correct plate as well. The wraps are ok. My Singapore Street Noodles GF style were amazing. The service was perfect. The pretentious atmosphere was the only downside in my opinion. I felt confident in their knowledge of gluten free preparation. Will definitely have to splurge on a return trip again sometime. Update: my second trip went terribly. I was the only gluten free person in a party of eight. My lemon chicken was screwed up twice. I watched everyone eat without me and when it finally came out the steamed veggies were still pretty much raw. The chicken tasted great when I finally ate while everyone else was chatting over dessert. Management offered me a free gluten dessert to compensate. This makes me think some crews there do not kniw what gluten free or celiacs are. Dine with caution when you have plenty of time to wait.
I eat here very frequently and am a celiac. of the tens of times in the last year I have eaten here I've never had a problem. all staff are extremely well trained and know how to handle gf requests with out issue. not once have I worried about my food, it is always stress free and like ordering as a 'normal' person. Lol safe and tasty option. always a good option in Boca. even when they are busy as can be.
PF Chang's is one of the better establishments I've come across regarding allergies, even surpassing higher caliber restaurants in the area. GF dishes are served on special plates and are very tasty. The gluten free menu is on the ACTUAL menu that everyone else gets, AMAZING!
Wonderful! Staff has been very knowledgable & attentive to strict dietary restrictions. Plates are different for gluten free dishes and each item brought to the table is stated to be "gluten free" or not gluten free so there is clear communication throughout the dining experience. I've never gotten sick, no cross-contamination issues so far (knock on wood). This is one of the very few places I'll eat outside my home. (Hyde Park location)
My go to place!
I was happily surprised that the gluten free menu was part of the main menu. However, I was suspicious that it was only geared toward the fad diet. When my soup came out, the waiter brought out the little crispy noodles. As I had explained Celiac to him before ordering, I briefly questioned him to confirm it was GF. He said it was made from rice, so I started eating. Several bites later, he came back from the kitchen, having checked with the chef, and the food was full of gluten. I have now been sick for several days. If you have a serious condition, I would not trust this restaurant.
I enjoyed my experience. The food was good. I haven't had any problems. I had the chicken lettuce wraps (I didn't eat too much of the lettuce it is too hard to digest) and egg drop soup. Both were quite good. You do have to request the GF soy sauce if you want it, the stuff on the table is NOT GF (read the fine print on the menu before ordering). The waiter was knowledgeable and took care to bring my food on a separate tray from the rest of my dining party (5 of us).
This Chang's always seems to be busy, especially during the weekends, so it is highly recommended to make reservations. This is by far one of my favorite chain restaurants because when you go to any Chang's, the food almost always tastes the same. One of the best things about this place is that they are very gluten free friendly, and they go out of the way to make sure that there is as little cross contamination as possible. Even the plates are different shapes and the sauces come out in different colored bowls. There is a wide variety of gluten free options, and there is no up charge for it. The service is generally fast and friendly.
For some reason, this P.F. Chang's is extremely hit and miss. Over the course of the years that I've been here, the food just doesn't seem to come out the same. Yes, P.F. Chang's is a chain, and as such, you should expect the same quality and taste as if you are eating the same dish in any other P.F. Chang's. For whatever reason one time the food will taste excellent and then the next time the same exact dish will just taste off, the meat isn't cooked right, there isn't enough sauce, etc. I do appreciate that they label the plates, rounded with a black line and says PF Chang's, and sauces, red, from the regular food. There is a nice GF selection. The staff is nice and friendly and the service is generally quick. One thing that I would caution is that if there is anything going on downtown or it is a hopping Friday or Saturday night, reservations are a good idea as you might find yourself waiting a while for a table.
