A place to go for a casual lunch, salads, pizza etc. I prefer the salads as there are several good ones from which to choose. Half an order is more than enough, unless you are hungry.

Alright, they originally brought me the wrong beer. When my lunch combo came, it was the wrong pizza. Despite that, they set both instances straight and we not only really loved our dishes, but the entire experience was just great. My wife ordered the pear, brie, and turkey sandwich - incredible combo. I ordered the sausage, peporoni, and mushroom pizza... More

My gf actually introduced me to this place. New it existed, just never tried it. Starting by the decor of the place, has a simple modern boutique look glass windows surrounding the location. Mixed w/ rustic wooden tables which gives a homey feel to it. Server arrived quickly and got us water and drinks. I ordered a strawberry basil martini... More

Even in pricey Ft Lauderdale, the $11.00 glass of bar brand Pinot Grigio is a bit steep. $14.00 w/tax and tip! If you've ever watched Bar Rescue or Restaurant Impossible, this is the "before". Management and wait staff are clueless, food, at best, is average and everything, excluding parking, is way over-priced. There are way too many outstanding restaurants within... More

So we've only tried the pizza and it was awesome and unique! The BBQ pizza and the club pizza were great! And the prices are fair I think, about 15$ for pizza, filled our stomachs at least :) A little wait for the food but the place was also almost filled up with customers.

A regular place to dine. Good food and service. The only detractor is the remodel. The center of the restaurant now feels more like a cafeteria with tables and chairs too close together.

The newly redesigned California Pizza Kitchen is delightful to visit and the new menu affords many choices. The food is good but the service is slow when the restaurant is crowded.

Went for lunch during the week. The place was freezing cold. If you like A/C this is a good place. I sat at the bar and the bar tender was friendly and got me food. I has a seafood pasta dish that was surprisingly good. The sauce was good, but overall I would say the food could have been hotter.... More
