I haven't been to this location before but have to other locations in other states. We stopped I for a quick dinner and were greeted warmly and promptly shown to a nice booth. Our server was attentive and friendly. I had pasta and my wife had a pizza both of which were nice. My pasta could have been a bit... More

First time for us at a CA Pizza Kitchen and we liked it. Interesting, tasty pizzas and other dishes. The only drawback was poor service. The place was packed at lunchtime.

We were staying across the street at the Courtyard Marriott and wanted a quick dinner. We had a large party of 8 adults and 1 baby. When we arrived they were busy with people waiting to be seated. We asked the hostess how long the wait was and she said 20 minutes. 20 minutes came and went. We kept asking... More

I've been to this chain in various states and locations and typically it's at the end of a long day, I can't find anything else and the menu is familiar to me. The food is ok, usually fresh, although this time my kid's food was served cold and really nothing amazing or to write home about. Ultimately, for what it... More

Busy, lots of atmosphere. The Chopped BBQ Chicken Salad was perfect. Light enough to continue a little site seeing, filing enough to be satisfied.

This is a neighborhood place so I have eaten here several times without a bad experience. This is a great place for a lunch with friends as well as a casual business lunch. I usually order a sandwich because that is what I usually eat for lunch. They have very large and very good sandwiches. Many are large enough to... More

I went to this restaurant with a large group (I think 14 people). We had one server who was extremely pleasant and efficient. We all ordered drinks which came out quickly and our food arrived at the right time. I'm pretty sure everybody got served within the space of a few minutes which was a miracle. I ordered the Pizza...

I love these restaurants normally. Pizza was too thin and fell apart when I ate it. It was soggy. Dumplings were good. Waitress was very slow and inattentive. I was watching and at times I think she was preparing food also. Very disappointing...
