P.F. Chang's is a national chain but it doesn't feel like one! One of my favorite places for Chinese-influenced food (and who could resist the word Bistro) in Cincy. If you stick to either an appetizer or 1 entrée you'll find that it's very filling and very inexpensive. Usually I go with the Chicken Lettuce Wraps ($6.75) and the Sichuan-style asparagus ($5.95) and take the leftovers home. The brown rice is always fluffy & non-sticky.

Lots of great vegetarian offerings on the menu. My friend, Renée, who is vegan, usually opts for the Lettuce wraps with tofu; she finds the chef & staff here to be very accommodating.

House drinks are wonderful here and look very tropical with fruit & umbrellas. They can make the meal pricey, though. Fortunately, the bar is also a great place for people to meet after work & that may be all you're interested in are the drinks. My especial favorite is the PLUM WINE - mmmm.

The décor could be described as Chinese Art Deco and is very modern, funky & cool.

Staff is always nice & friendly.
UPDATE:
Tonight I met the wonderful trés cool, way cool server, Nick! He is a national trainer for P. F. Chang's & I can certainly see why! He is very knowledgeable about the P. F. Chang concept & history, he's extremely professional & an expert at what he does!!

The location in West Chester (just north of Cincy) has terrace seating.
