Consistently VERY GOOD. Great thin-crust pizza.

Food quality is consistently very good. Tossed salad with blue cheese dressing tossed in is one of my favorite restaurant salads. Margarita pizza with added double olives is fantastic. Fresh mozzarella. Most impressive: The kids grilled chicken with broccoli. Wow. Ultra-fresh, perfectly... read more

We love CPK. We also had our only two bad experiences at CPK ever at this location. And twice in a row in just one month. The first time the service was so slow that after 20 minutes I had to remind the waitress that we were still waiting for our drinks. Anyway things like this do happen. So we... More

Fresh mozzarella. Most impressive: The kids grilled chicken with broccoli. Wow. Ultra-fresh, perfectly cooked vegetables and char-grilled chicken.

It's a chain, service is consistently good, food is consistently the same (good). Lots of healthy choices, not too expensive.

So I'm not supposed to eat pizza since I'm on a diet, but hey, I'm traveling for business and needed a pizza. I'll be good and get a small house salad and only eat half the pizza. (they are small) Yeah, right. They bring out the house side salad, and it's bigger than most chef salad's sans meat. I did... More

This is a typical CPK in a great location. It is worth the trip here some evening to shop and get in the vibe. Chose CPK because I hadn't eaten at one in 25 years or so. The pizza is OK, but not as good as you'd get in many Mom & Pop shops around the area. We ordered the... More

Growing up my father and I would always go there. To this day it's still one of my preferences in restaurants to visit. When I went to the restaurant it was during the afternoon and there was a small amount of people there, which created a nice ambiance to eat at. The location is close to the water and the... More

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
