California Pizza Kitchen introduced contemporary pizza to California, and was unique... for a while. Now they are all overthe place. Still very good. What set this location apart was outstanding and quick service, a concept unknown at the Santa Barbara location.

I am from NY area and used to incredible NY pizza. But I have to admit, this was very good pizza for California. Crust was tasty, thin, nice toppings and came out fairly quick. The service was great and very accommodating, especially for my grandson. Nice salads, wines, and a good value.

Our server was very good. She had our food to us very quickly and was there with refills without us asking. She recommended a smaller portion of salad as she thought we would have too much food, obviously thinking about the customer as oppose to making more money in her pocket. The food was really good. We had the seasonal... More

Service not so much. But the pizza made up for it. And the bread and oil they bring out. Yum.. Would go back if we still had one where we live

There is no question why this place is always packed. awesome pizzas, pizza variations you've never even heard of and exceptionally nice service...and pretty quick too, considering the place was so crowded. I'm definately going there again when i'm back in Santa Monica.

This place was buzzing when we were there one night so decided on the spur of the moment to dine here. We sat outside on a high bar table and stools and ordered a few things to share. It had a great buzzy atmosphere but we expected the food to be much better given the number of patrons eating here.... More

This is a great place for a few people to go as you can order pizza and salads to share and cut the price down. If a couple only one pizza and a half serve of salad is enough
