P.F. Chang's - Dulles
Making a reservation on OpenTable was super easy and convenient. Everything else about our experience was just fair. The Hostess wasn't very friendly and acted as if we were inconveniencing her by being there. The waitress was extremely slow and we all commented we had never heard so many dishes break during the time we were there. The food was just mediocre. Also the music was too loud for us to have a reasonable conversation. Too many other options in our area for Asian food to go back any time soon.
Longer than usual waiting, but the food was good. Our service was a little slow, but our server was friendly.
Love the food. Especially the lettuce wraps. Definitely worth the hour drive.
Had a reservation for Friday night. When we got to the restaurant we were told that their reservation system was down and so we had no reservation. So we grabbed two seats at the bar. Bartender was great, food was fine, but if the reservation system was down, how did we make the Open Table reservation? And we got dining points but we never checked in to our reservation. Sounds to me like the staff just didn't want to bother with reservations, they'd rather make everybody wait. I've had problems with the staff at this location before, their attitude is somewhere between "ignore the customer" and "f=== you". There are too many choices in the area that have competent staff and management. I doubt that I'll be back and I definitely won't recommend it.
Chang’s has no record of the open table reservation so had to wait 30 minutes past reservation time. Then they got the food order wrong. Not a great dining experience.
We've been to Benihana MANY times! It is the go to celebration restaurant for my 30 year old son and 21 year old daughter's birthdays. Last night was for my daughter's 21st. The whole Benihana show gets a little stale after going for 9 million years and being an adult BUT last night was different. We had our first ever female chef, Sandra, and she was amazing! She omitted a bunch of the corny stuff (e.g. she didn't wear a hat so we didn't get shrimp tossed in her hat) which we all appreciated. She substituted stale tricks for amazing manual dexterity and truly impressive hand eye coordination. For the first time in years, we all really WATCHED her cook and totally enjoyed the performance! Whatever she's being paid, Sandra deserves a raise!
