But Santa Ana's CPK looks new again as they recently completed a remodel that has given them a modern and inviting new look. The warm, rustic décor... read more

We arrived at noon time on a Wednesday. Self Parking area was getting full but there were empty spaces farthest from Main Place mall entrance. We decided valet parking was not necessary. The restaurant is not crowded when we arrived. It was a nice day. We should have chosen to eat in the patio. Inside, the tables were in open... More

Service was fine, bread and dipping oil very good. Wedge salad was fresh and the bacon on the salad was excellent. Ordered the Mediterranean Pizza and it was dry very little sauce and very little cheese. Too bad for a restaurant named California Pizza Kitchen with mediocre Pizza. Asked the waitress for extra sauce to spread on my pizza, the... More

Sitting on the patio outside the restaurant, waiting for the business next door to open. Manager Mauro Barron came out and offered us water while we waited, AND offered to open the patio umbrellas to give us shade. 2 hours later we chose to go back for lunch, just because Mauro had been so gracious. The food was wonderful. We... More

Food server was great. Not sure what we wanted, she made excellent recommendations. Tried the split pea and barley soup, wonderful. Caramel cookie pudding dessert was to die for!!!

We have been fans of this restaurant in several locations for many years. We never get a bad meal. The atmosphere is lively, with open environment. The pizzas are great and there's an extensive selection. The salads are also outstanding and a favorite thing for my husband and I to do is to split a pizza and a salad. We... More
