Party of 3. 2 shared a hand-tossed pizza which we rated OK. 1 ordered a pasta dish which she rated very good. Service was good. Probably wouldn't eat at a CPK again.

We visited the restaurant at 7 p.m. at night on a Thursday evening when it was busy. Staff at the host stand and our wait staff was friendly and accommodating. I was impressed with the configuration of the restaurant, as it allows for space and privacy between tables. There is dining available outside of the restaurant, and delivery is available.... More

CPK is always consistent. The food is good wholesome and quick. I always get the BBQ chicken salad, and am never disappointed. Great for a quick bite. Not a place for serious dining.

The gluten-free options here were much more than I expected having only been to a CPK years ago. The sangria was excellent and their pepperoni and sausage pizza (gf crust) was a nice treat. Would be nice to have a gf/dairy-free dessert option. Also the patio in the evening was relaxing and full of plant life.

Not in the mood for pizza or pasta, I made the mistake of ordering fish tacos. They were pinkie-sized, smaller than a child's portion, and the remainder was all cabbage. It was almost laughable if it hadn't been so pathetic. I refused it and shared my spouses meal instead. When I talked with the manager she indicated that their meals... More

This was my first visit to a California Pizza Kitchen and will definitely go back. Service was excellent. Pizza was good and there were lots of non-pizza choices including great salads and pasta.

Late lunch with the wife and daughter. Been here before but no reviews done. Good ambience, inside or outside. Service is fast, and servers are friendly. Not really a lot of selection, a little pricey for pizza but I think worth it. Spacing of tables are good and it gives some privacy even in a public place. The only issue... More

I am always amazed how some corporate restaurants remain consistent in their service. That truly requires a "hats off" to the management. As for the food, we only go for the pizza (and there are so many pizza places), I always know I will get a good slice. Love it!

CPK is a family favorite and I always find something new to try. The service is always good and the full bar helps when you have many children with or around you.
