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

Went with the family and enjoyed our meal. Our server Rachael was funny and attentive. Got the white pizza with bacon and a pepperoni & sausage. Knew what they were and as expected they did not disappoint. We did try one new thing. The fried macaroni & cheese appetizer. I have ordered similar things elsewhere and almost always I am... More

CPK is always wonderful. The food is very fresh, delicious and healthy. The service is also always excellent. They have a variety of pastas, appetizers, pizza, salads and healthy dishes. Everything tastes delicious with a very fresh, California-like taste. It's a great return to place.

If you want a break for some reason from Chicago deep dish, this is a good option. The food is standard across the chain, but it is good pizza.
