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.

Ate here with a group of 5 people. It was an early dinner so seating was not a problem. We all had something different and everyone seemed pleased with the food. The service was good and the atmosphere was comfortable. The menu selection was very good and my particular pizza was very tasty. I would eat here again.

Food was standard --- and the service was always good and the food arrived promptly. Would've been better if the pizza was thicker.

I had several small dishes, which made a nice dinner before attending a late desert and coffee party elsewhere.

Wife and I have dinner over there almost every month. Their pizza and desert are great. Service is good too. Cant ask more. This place is pretty popular, especially over the weekend. Sometimes we have to wait 15-20 mins to get seated. Other than that, no complain at all.

The food is tasty, a good value and the best is that it's conveniently adjacent to the Westin Pasadena

We had an extended business lunch at this location, and we all were pleasantly surprised with the service and the quality of the food. It's a great location and is perfect for business lunches. The salads and flatbreads were incredible and very filling.

This review is for the California Pizza Kitchen located in Pasadena. We had a terrific time at every visit to CPK on our trip in Pasadena. I believe we ate here at least 3 times, and got the Sangria as our drink every time. I would definitely recommend getting the Appleberry Sangria, it's amazing. Our first trip here, we had... More
