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

Good service, great menu and a better than average wine list. We like the special salads and great soups. Their pizzas are not cheap but are worth the extra cost. I've seen people come in for take out pizzas that must have totalled over $100. It is part of the Main Place Mall (Westfield) but the entrance is outside adjacent... More

I love the Kung Pao Spaghetti. The kids meals are a great deal. Make sure you get the kids $1 ice cream sundae.

Ok, these were good restaurants when they were novel - 20 years ago. But the food is bland and uninspiring. We live in So Cal where there are hundreds of great hole in the wall restaurants - most with an awesome ethnic flare. Go to Little Saigon and have some great Viet food instead. It's only 10 minutes from CPK!

About a 10 minute walk from our hotel. This was a nice option to get-away from Harbor Blvd/Disneyland hotels and restaurants. It was great to sit down, relax, enjoy a nice meal and glass of wine! The service was very good. Nice menu, yummy pizza!

I've driven by many California Pizza Kitchens over the years and never stopped. I was very surprised. I had a great service. I had the Sicilian pizza and a house salad. They were both very good. I look forward to my next time!

I've visited many CPK's throughout California and Hawaii and since it's a franchise type of restaurant, I wasn't thinking of reviewing it. However, due to the great service we received at the Santa Ana location, I decided to do a quick review. We arrived about 20 minutes to closing and we were in a bit of a bind because we... More

Most CPK's have good food. Its a chain, so you can't expect too much. The service is hit and miss here... even when its slow, the service can be slow. Friendly staff, plenty of parking (its a mall) but if you see a line outside, find someplace else.
