Not just Pizza

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

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
