Good food

This place has standard CPK fare. Service was average. Nothing to write home about but hits the spot if you are craving CPK.

I have been to this restaurant many times and they never disappoint. The food is really good and the service is genuinely awesome. Today, I was served by William who really seems to like what he does because he is pleasant and personable and together with the great food this made for a particularly peachy experience yet again. I love... More

Matt and I took his Mom to lunch here recently. They have both eaten at the chain before, but not at this location. It was my first time ever. When we arrived, the host at the door seemed distracted and unhappy to be working, which did not bode well. However, our server was wonderful. We started with a flat bread... More

Pizza here is always very good, but the menu is extensive and has many options. I typically don't move away from ordering pizza, but when I have it's always been good. Never had bad service and we are frequent visitors to their two mall locations.

Ordered the build your own pizza that included pepperoni, feta, sun-dried tomatoes, fresh garlic and fresh garlic. It was delicious and wish I could find other places where I can order that combination.

Have eaten here for dine in and take out many times. Always fresh and good. My nieces always pick CPK if you let them choose. Pizzas and salads are all tasty. Luv the fish tacos

My kids decided to go to CPK rather than the food court after their field trip before getting back on the bus back to school. The service was quick. They ordered their pizzas, woofed them down and got back on their bus within an hour. The service was very friendly. It's a nice place for the kids.

Mostly I avoid malls (believe stores are overpriced). However, recently I visited Polaris Mall looking for a specific item. As a fluke I picked up a "take-out" menu from Polaris-California Pizza Kitchen. I was Very Impressed with the choices especially since my husband and I are becoming more "Vegetarian" and less "Meat" eaters. I was first introduced to California Pizza... More
