Portions are smaller than at another CPK I dined at last month. Pasta was under-cooked and had to be sent back. Pizza is mostly crust and is way better at Blaze. My dinner receipt needed to be corrected. Wait staff is the least enthusiastic of all the CPKs I frequent. Need I write more...

Waited 25 minutes to get seated only another 20 to be waited on. Thank goodness another waiter spotted the problem and helped. U.S. Or we would have been sitting there all night waiting.finally the original waiter came by, apologized but the service was just the same. Badly managed place.

This was a surprise and looked far less "mallish" then usual. The service was excellent. The food however, still had that institutional flavor, but it is near the Westin if you want takeaway. To dine in - go to the Ventana at the Westin

I stopped here for a late lunch with my husband and two young boys. It's a very short walk from the Westin Pasadena, where we were staying. The restaurant is across the street from City Hall. The server was pleasant and offered suggestions. The food was tasty and was served quickly. Good children's meal options. Bonus: We were given a... More

The CPK is pretty nice inside. It is well laid out and spacious. There is validated parking beneath the restaurant. My boyfriend and I shared a petite wedge salad and the mac and cheese appetizer. The salad looked like it had been chopped into a wedge a couple days ago and stored in a fridge since. The mac and cheese... More

I actually frequent this location for lunch often, but I normally don't order pizza. They have a good selection of Salads and they are very filling and good. My favorite is the Moroccan.

CPK has the Santa Julia Cabernet Sauvignon from Mendoza Argentina. This is a light fruity Cabernet with distinct ripe black cherry flavors. Perfect if you want light and fruity... and pairs well with their grilled vegetable salad with sauteed Salmon on top.

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

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 had the California veggie pizza, salad, fried mac-and-cheese...
