They just re modeled so the seating arrangements are a little different. Less booths, more big tables, and more weird high tables. The kids love the kids menu the regular menu is fine. It is sometimes a challenge to get just a regular pasta dish (Alfredo) instead of their version (garlic Alfredo). But it usually turns into a nice night... More

The California Pizza Kitchen is an upscale, chain restaurant with an innovative menu. The menu has something for everyone: unique pizzas, pastas, salads, desserts and more. And this location did not disappoint. I ordered the BBQ Chicken Pizza. It was delicious. The service was good! Ask for bread and olive oil while you are waiting for your meals to arrive... More

In a town that doesn't seem to care about good food, this is a good place for a reasonable priced meal that is ok. Its not bad, but for MV it might be the best in town.

When I first looked at the menu for lunch I was a little disappointed that there was nothing that I could have without spending $20 which I didn't feel like doing for an quick lunch. I then saw the small plate menu and that was perfect. The prices were excellent and so was the portions and the food

Menu continues to be so varied - had soup and sandwich (pea/barley and chicken club - would get both of those again!). My friend had the Italian sandwich (something was pretty hot in flavor in there - I could not have eaten it) She also took home an order of chicken piccata for later (yummy!) Service was attentive, the restaurant... More

The food was the disappointing part. My half veggie salad was limp and uninteresting. For $10 it was not more than a side. I go there because it's an easy place to meet friends for lunch and the service is courteous and will probably be back.

Our local CPK is where we go when no one really knows what they want. It never let's us down. The menu choices are interesting, the food is well prepared, and the portions are generous. For either eating in or picking up and bringing home, CPK is a good choice for great appetizers, interesting salads, specialty pizzas, and satisfying pasta... More

This place is in our neighborhood. Many employees have been their since the beginning. Very friendly. Food is good and fine for a casual outing with friends and family. Had the plank salmon last time, you can't go wrong with that. Of course Pizza is great.

Thank SnackDrag0n
