Had lunch here with the wife and daughter. Friday lunch time was very busy and we had a 10 minute wait for a table which was not bad at all. After being seated, the hostess reminded us of their new menu and the special lunch dishes of several 7 inch personal pizza and either soup or salad or half a... More

We arrived late (nearing 9pm) on a Friday night to find the restaurant in the middle of a full on remodeling project. As it was already late and I had wanted to eat here, we decided to stay. We were seated within minutes and had a very pleasant server. Drinks and bread were brought out quickly. We started with a... More

Pepperoni pizza, artichoke and spinach pizza, and asparagus pasta were all good. The pasta had no salt in it, so I had to add some. Waitress was very nice. Only had a 5 minute wait at 6pm on a Saturday night.

Normally, I look forward to a visit to the International Plaza not for the Apple store, not for Nordstrom's but to have a shrimp & chicken lettuce wrap at the California Pizza Kitchen. Today, I was shocked to find the place open and in the middle of a major renovation. No flooring, no drop celling tiles, sheetrock with exposed tape... More

I have had so many GF pizzas and this by far is the worst I have ever had!! Actually, a hot and ready from Little Ceasars would have more flavor than what they served us! We ordered a pepperoni and sausage pizza which arrived cold with absolutely NO SAUCE on it. The crust of the pizza was rubbery and tasted... More

We had lunch at the International Plaza location. The hostess was friendly. Our server was Olivia and she was great. I was impressed with the menu selection. It seems as there is something for everyone. Gluten free, low calories, big meals and little plates. Mexican, Asian and Italian. We had small plates. My husband had the Dakota Smashed Pea &... More

We ordered our usual favorites but were very disappointed. The salads were the same, but the pizzas were very burnt. The waitress waited at least 20 minutes to check on us. When we called it to her attention that they were burnt, she said it was normal for the wheat crust to burn in the wood ovens. When we responded... More

We had a great lunch there. The kids' grilled chicken was the best $5 kid meal I've ever seen, finished with the huge $1 child sundaes. The grown-ups left happy with their food, but thrilled with the overall experience

Wife and I like the variety of pie choices CPK has. We prefer a good crisp on the crust so we ask for the pizza to be cooked well done. They always prepare it to our satisfaction. Their pasta dishes are very good as well and the complimentary bread is yummy.
