Disappointing

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.

We like this place because they have nice variety in the menu, the food is consistently good and the service is quick. From time to time they change some items in the menu to keep it interesting. The prices are reasonable.

Well, we love any CPK! There is always something great to choose from and they are constantly adding new items, which are always good. We love the whole grain pizza dough and their thin crust. You can ask them to put that on any pizza you order. We love their salads as well. I can't think of anything we have... More

arrived at CPK and find out that now you have to make a big deal to get butter with your bread. they want you to use the oil they provide because it is healthier. I was told butter was not available at all but pushed back a little then got a small tab of it from the kitchen. this is... More

I went here twice and found both food and service exceptional, it doesn't seem like a chain except for the printing of the menu. Very open with lots of windows making it feel very roomy. I had pasta dishes both times, both the pesto and light cream sauces were excellent.

My wife & I ate dinner on 8/3/2013 at the Mission Viejo CPK. We both had the small plate specials –a Petite Wedge Salad and a Chicken Tinga Quesadilla. The wedge salad was good – ample bacon, blue cheese and lettuce. The quesadilla, however, was terrible. The menu listed lime chicken as the first ingredient, implying there would be abundant...
