Having been frequent visitors when our children were at home, it has been several years since we have visited CPK. What a tasty return! We chose summer seasonal selections: strawberry salad and lobster flatbread to share. Fresh, light and great for sharing! Pistachios & watermelon were surprise bites in the salad adding texture & crunch. Followed up with strawberry shortcake... More

If you have not been to this franchise you will enjoy it. Great look inside and very good menu besides Pizza. Price is right $$ and will become one of your favorite places down the road. Check out menu on line. Tex-Mex style and all delicious. Good size portions. Of course the pizza is worth going there for...it's pizza with... More

Hadn't been here in a long time but stopped by after shopping one Saturday. We had an energetic delightful waitress who took good care of us. I thought my barbecue chicken salad was delicious! I've also enjoyed their pizza in the past but opted for this. Also got the split pea soup which was very good. Didn't much care for... More

I visited the California Pizza Kitchen this past weekend and although the wait was long the food was excellent. Our waiter was a bit preoccupied from our table but that can be explained by the sat. night rush. My order was for the Caramelized Peach Salad, which was a fantastic end to my day. I really liked the Salted Caramel... More

I used to enjoy going to this place. It has become very very average. It is loud. The menu is boring. The food is average. The service is average. The atmosphere is loud with screaming children. Will not go back.

our waiter was the slowest person ever. He seated us and then we saw him go across the restaurant and just take a seat for 15 minutes. He didn't even bring out the bread until we asked it was ridiculous.

Late Sunday afternoon, not too crowded, party of seven did not have too long of a wait. Everyone had different orders. I had the linguine with zucchini and shrimp. Pretty good and took some home for leftovers lunch the next day, and it was even tastier. Two people shared the appetizer Avocado Roll, they love it again and again. Jambalaya... More
