Always good

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

mushroom pizza was very good, the avocado egg rolls were very tasty. we had a mildy distracted server with another table of ladies but the patio was nice on a lovely night watching all the shoppers.

Ok, with this said… the CPK is pretty standard. But must admit to not enjoying my california cobb salad here. Admittedly I have not been to a CPK in a number of years, but we were rushed and thought we could get served quickly -- which we did. The salad was served with "cold" chicken which is a pet peeve...

This was our 2nd visit to CPK for their Margherita Pizza and they didn't disappoint. Had the asian dumplings for an appetizer & they too were delicious! Great service, clean and comfortable atmosphere & terrific location.

we visit this CPK everytime we are in Columbus. We miss the one they closed in Dayton. We love the menu and options. The number of pizzas are amazing. Their Thai Crunch Salad is AMAZING

Celiac son had a tremendous dining experience. Loves the GF pepperoni pizza and has not been cross-contaminated here. I love their salad.

Good food, fast courteous service, and tables available even on Mother's Day. It's not fine dining but otherwise delivers everything you need. No issues here.

Our first time to this restaurant. We are real pizza lovers, and cook our own at home. Our server was Jeanette, and she did a very good job. Attentive, and friendly. We had the margherita pizza.. loved it! perfect for lunch which is what we were there for. We bought a thin crust one and shared it. Thank you California... More
