This restaurant is located inside the Brea Mall. From the time we arrived, until we left, the customer service was fantastic. Our server was very attentive, we were greeted by the Manager, the food was great, and the price is right. This location gets busy during lunch, however they have plenty of seating and staff available.

They have recently remodeled and it is beautiful inside but very noisy. But we prefer to sit outside on their patio where it's quieter. Great food. We usually order the California salad and Five Cheese & Tomato pizza. Food is always good, generous portions. Friendly staff but sometimes service is spotty. Nothing huge but if we split a salad why... More

This used to be a favorite Sunday afternoon destination for my wife and I until they messed it up with a remodel. Now, the place is so loud, conversation is impossible. Also they managed to cram the whole place full of cord-wood seating - the nice booths are gone. Food is still good. Servers great. We won't be back.

The food is always good. You have to wait for a long time on weekends, but since it's at a mall that shouldn't be a problem.

I am here to write about a certain employee named SARA, a hostess who I encountered to be very rude and disrespectful. I Have eaten many times at this particular location and always enjoyed the food and staff. However, today was an exception. I was to meet some friends and their kids for lunch. My two girls and I were... More

What's NOT to love about CPK? Highly recommend the Key Lime pie - tart and cool and refreshing end to whatever other carbs you've ingested on this visit!

This is part of a large chain which in years past offered decent food for the price. However, they seem to have gone the "sports bar" routine rather than the family Italian they once were. After some years without trying this place I dropped in for lunch. I was surprised that the décor had changed to minimalist, with big screen... More

Dropped in for lunch and had a great time and a great meal. Young staff that takes a great interest in their customers. Very good food and a descent price. Good place for a fast, casual lunch.

Their to-go service is great! I come hear at least 2 times a week since I work at the mall. The servers are always so friendly and prompt when I pick up my order.
