Service is outstanding, our waitress (Laurie) was amazing, food is average, I think for the portion and quality of food the prices are in the high range.

I stopped by for dinner and ate at the bar. The pizza was delicious and service was great. I took about 1/2 the pizza back home and it tasted great the next day. Lots of good selections on menu. Lots of choices of wines by the glass a well. Great place for lunch or dinner when near the mall.

We went to eat here before the Ducks game on Wednesday and it wasn't busy at all. We were seated quickly but our waitress was slow getting to us, forgot to bring my soup until I asked, and was just not really too interested in being quick. The food was good. I really enjoy the potato soup and our pizza... More

We went to CPK last night and were disappointed with our food and service. We ordered our usual penne pasta and pizza. The pasta was very undercooked and the pizza lacked flavor and was dry. The waitress, Sarah, never returned to the table for drink refills and couldn't help us with our CPK rewards either. I doubt we will go... More

Great salads, pizza and entrees. Their food is far better than just pizza although the their pizza is great. Recommend the Harvest Kale Salad

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.
