Nice chain restaurant experience

I’m not one for chain restaurants, but this was right across the courtyard from the Westin where I was staying. Very nice lunch experience. We were seated right away. Our server was friendly, attentive and very prompt – especially nice at lunchtime, when you’re in a hurry. Food was very good. We... read more

Excellent, friendly service. Nice outside eating area with view of Pasadena's attractive city hall. Typical CPK food.

Sitting at the bar is the best, the two guys that hold down the fort are friendly and like to make sure you are taken care of. If you are a regular, they remember what you drink and will begin to pour before you even sit down... Outback took over and reduced the menu, but the food is still good...just... More

This was our first visit to a California Pizza. When the staff learned that, they gave us a complimentary flat bread appetizer. It was delicious. I had a mojito that was excellent and refreshing. We each shared a salad and a pizza between two people. The food was fresh, healthy and yummy. We had plenty of leftovers to take with... More

While visiting family, we decided to stop by California Pizza Kitchen and had an enjoyable meal. The food was good and tasty. The best thing was our waitress who was excellent. She was helpful, organized and pleasant. I'd have no problem eating here again. Also, if you park in the Westin parking garage, the restaurant will validate your parking ticket.

I very much enjoyed the California Pizza kitchen. Our server, JB was very talkative and friendly. The food came quickly, and was delicious. The odd thing was that the pizzas had a salad on top of them. I enjoyed it very much, but I don't think it's for everyone. We shared one pizza between two people, and it was the... More

Though not gourmet food, it's always tasty and reliable. Their pizzas are great and so are their salads.

A great place to pop in to and very close to The Westin and Colorado Blvd. Like all of the chain - dependable service, food, and drink.
