App Reviews

  • Rapid pick up great...when accurate

    By frequentpanera
    First, rapid pick up is an excellent concept. Love it, I’m busy and hate waiting so appreciate it very much. However my meal has been incorrect at least 4 times that I can think of using rapid pickup. This is a problem because now I’ve left the restaurant with the wrong order and don’t discover the mistake until I’ve served at my destination. Today I got the Greek goddess salad, I had selected to add Gorgonzola cheese, and it is not on the salad. I paid extra for the cheese I’m sure, and it is on the receipt but not on my salad. Another visit I ordered the Napa almond chicken salad sandwich. They gave me a turkey sandwich!!! I was NOT happy. So much so that I called the restaurant to complain and wanted my money back. The manager said she could not give my money back but next time I’m in find her and I’ll get a free sandwich. Great. But not a solution to my wrong meal!! Overall love rapid pick up. I do peak inside the bag now to see if the food looks approximately correct, without undoing all the wrapping. But panera needs to work on quality control. I always see someone at the counter checking the food. But not sure how well they are checking!!!!!
  • Great food, if only the service was so

    By jopedstale
    I love their menu choices and the quality of their food. GREAT pastries, salads and sandwiches. Now if the management (not the store manager-the company management) would just get their act together and revise their application, interview, and hiring process, I bet they’d have MUCH better service. Most of the front workers don’t listen and are slow to help. My daughter, who is what I call smarter than the average bear, efficient and had food service experience, tried to apply for a job here right before she moved home from college. By the time the company got back to her two weeks had gone by. Then the interview was a week later. The second interview was two weeks after that. By that time she was five weeks into her summer and had another job! No wonder the company cannot good workers. They all get other jobs before the second interview and go elsewhere! Modernize and speed up the hiring process and hire service people who can serve your customers well. If it weren’t for your food and location I wouldn’t come back. If it weren’t for your poor service, I’d come back more often.
  • Major difference between online experience and in store experience

    By Typh3rJ
    There’s a major disconnect between the experience in store and online with panera. In store you can customize your food however you want and you can use multiple rewards at the same time. Neither of these is a feature in the app or on the website. Want steak on the bbq flatbread instead of chicken? Can’t do it on the app, only roasted turkey is available to substitute. Want bacon on your Baja Mac and cheese? Can’t do it... they don’t have any customizable options for the Mac and cheeses... Have a dollar off a pick two and a dollar off a sandwich and a dollar off a soup you want to use? Sorry, can only do the dollar off the pick two. They won’t even let you use the dollar off a sandwich unless it’s not on a pick two! All of these things I can do in the store. There is no excuse for not being able to do these on the app or website. If they want to take away these options in store, ok I’ll accept that, as long as their customer experience is consistent between the store and online. Panera, aka Saint Louis Bread Co (as they should be calling themselves), is better than this and I’m extremely shocked at just how different these experiences are. I don’t know a single other restaurant or store that is so different like this.
  • Great food! Great service! Great people! Love online ordering!

    By Lady Fairfax
    I order dinner online from PB several times a week. I love the real, fresh food. The selections seem endless when I order online, because I can add or remove many ingredients to my Pick 2 salad and sandwich. When I make a change while ordering, it reflects the change in the calories and price for the order. The website is easy to use and intuitive and displays the pictures of the items and the calories and prices for each item, even the desserts. The only confusion I had in the beginning was the next major command is at the bottom of the page (in an orange bar), and I wasn’t looking there. I only wish they would deliver to me, but I am just out of their range! Very frustrating, because I am mobility challenged and was really counting on enjoying delivery service. Sometimes friends pick up my dinner. But if I have to drive over myself, the wonderful Herndon staff brings my order out to me. I can’t ask for much more. Well, delivery would be nice!
  • Delivery and Rapid Pick Up ROCKS!

    By Bigbadbrandini
    I have definitely started eating more Panera since I’ve downloaded this app about a year ago. I use the rapid pick up often. It is nice to walk into the Panera that has a long line of people waiting to order, and I walk right by all of them to pick up my order that’s already been freshly prepared. And then I walk right by all of them again with my bag in hand, their faces showing confusion and jealousy. The app works for me most of the time, however, there have been some times where it acts clunky and malfunctions, such as giving me an error when I want to sign up for text updates on my delivery. And it is very frustrating when I want to order some food through the app, but it is not working and not available to use. Sometimes, if I kill the app and restart it, that alleviates the problem. Sometimes the app has been taken down for updates. They do provide a notification when they anticipate it will be ready to use again, which is nice. I love that the app is synced with Apple Pay. I also like that when I want to add a card payment, it can photograph the credit card so I don’t have to type in the numbers. I also like that all my Panera rewards are available to see during checkout. I can apply one to my order if I like or save for later. Overall, this app gets five stars from me. I really like using the Panera app on a regular basis. But I probably eat too much Panera, lol!
  • Decent app, but needs work to be great

    By Lllucinda
    This app is a big step in the right direction, but I'm honestly surprised by all the super positive reviews for it. Yes, it works for the most part, but it's far from ideal. Note: I frequently use it for Rapid Pick-up orders, on an iPhone 7. It's cumbersome to peruse the lengthy menu. Search functionality would be helpful here. The "favorites" feature is helpful but not well-designed. You must click backward while placing an order to access your favorites, making it seem like you're exiting the order . Whose idea was that? Not a customer's, I suspect. Also, the app's connectivity is glitchy in ways that other on-the-go ordering apps aren't. It locks up frequently for no apparent reason, sometimes when switching from WiFi to cellular connection. But not always. In short, the app works and is far better than nothing. And the item customization options are very handy. But it's nothing stellar or even consistently smooth.
  • Best food ordering app ever

    By Mamc424
    The craze for restaurants nowadays seems to be ‘to go’ and ‘quick pickup’ apps. Many of them are so difficult to use, though, that you’re better off order in person and waiting the extra time. This is not the case for the Panera Bread app. The user experience is perfectly optimized to order your food as efficiently as possible. I did not need to sign in with a Panera account and I didn’t need to give any information to continue as a guest. I was able to pay with Apple Pay and didn’t have to give my name or email. I was able to customize my order, removing some ingredients and specifying extra or less of others. The Panera I was ordering from ran out of the bread for one of my sandwiches, but the app easily allowed me to pick a different bread and order the sandwich. I was incredibly impressed by the ease of use of this app. Using it was easily the best part of my day.
  • Mobile Ordering

    By Supershinyjoyce
    I love ordering rapid pick up from the app. I usually order the same thing: You Pick Two with a salad and mac and cheese. Recently, the mac and cheese portion for You Pick Two default size changed to large. This is a comically large portion (think family size) for someone who is also getting a half portion of another menu item. The first time I came home with a bowl of mac and cheese larger than my face, I chalked it up to my mistake. Maybe I accidentally hit the wrong button. However, when it happened again I went back to the app and discovered that the default size is large despite other You Pick Two items defaulting to smaller sizes. For people who order frequently and click through without reading, this results in ordering more food and paying more than intended. Either this is a shady plan to make a few easy bucks off of unsuspecting customers or a terrible design flaw. Either way, someone needs to fix it. Since I would find no way to submit a complaint via customer care, I’m doing so in more public forum.
  • Terrible update

    By SuzyQ525
    I don’t know why Panera felt they needed to “improve” their app. The old version worked perfectly and I never had a problem with an order. The first time I used this new version it wouldn’t let me remove the side, no matter how many times I tapped “no side.” The next time I used it, a week later, I customized my order specifying a half salad with no side. I checked it before checking out and it was correct, but on the next screen it showed a whole salad with a side! I had to remove that and start all over. A couple of days later I tried it again, and had a similar problem with my order changing itself. Eventually it was showing correctly, including my request for extra dressing. But when I picked up my order the “extra dressing” was not printed on my receipt, and there wasn’t extra in my bag, so I had to ask for it. I never had any of these problems before, and I used the old app at least 3 times a week - sometimes more.
  • Rapid pick up often prepared incorrectly

    By Eagamer24
    As much as I love the food at Panera, my family is on the go and I almost always use the rapid pick up. I try to check the order before leaving but sometimes I’m in too big of a hurry. This sounds like a high number but I would say about 40% of the time something is incorrect with the order. It may be a condiment that I customize to leave off or sometimes they get the order completely wrong. Most of the time this happens with my breakfast sandwiches. My kids do not like cheese and sure enough it almost always comes with cheese even though I customized it not to. I live about 10 minutes away and I just don’t feel like going back up there which means a lot of times the food just goes to waste. It would be nice if somebody could double check the orders!
