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

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.

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
