Went for lunch at this CA. chain and was pleasantly surprised. A thin crust pear and Gorgonzola pizza was very tasty and unusual, and I also liked the salads we tried. It was crowded, but our waitress(Britt) was great, informative, and efficient. We asked for lots of accommodation IE: no cilantro, sharing dishes etc. and they complied cheerfully.

I don't really have much choices at Standford Shopping Center for dinning. My family likes California Pizza Kitchen so we usually go there when we visit Stanford. I love thin pizza. Their salads are very good!! I tried pasta but wasn't good at all.

We visit 'CPK' regularly with the family when in Menlo Park on vacation. It is a firm favorite with the children and we always find the staff to be good with children as well as very efficient. Obviously the pizzas are great, but we also like the salads. The sweets are awesome (we come from the UK so are not... More

My fiance had never been to a California Pizza Kitchen, despite LOVING pizza and living in California, so we came here after some wedding registry action in the Stanford Shopping Center, and we had a really delicious meal! The menu could use some more vegetarian options, but we found some things we wanted to try. We got the wild mushroom... More

I already knew their wonderful pizzas, but this time I tryed a pasta with shrimp. Unfortunately I forgot the name of this choice, but the taste is unforgettable.

This place has really good food! I sat at the counter so I was able to observe all of the food as it came out, it all looked great, including the deserts. I had the peach salad and it was really yummie! The pizza looked delicious!
