Everything I ordered they didn't have. The waiter was never anywhere to be found and I had to keep flagging another one down to refill our drinks. The food when it did finally come out was just okay. The place was not even very full so the service should not have taken so long to get to our table. I... More

CPK is a family oriented restaurant that has a very wide and eclectic menu that has something for most everyone. As one might expect their pizza is very good and the large size is enough to feed two to four depending on how hungry everyone is. Their salads and sandwiches, including fish and pork tacos, are also solid choices. One... More

Great pizza and enjoyable place to gather with friends for a casual lunch or dinner out. The pizza was very good, the wait staff is attentive and coupons are accepted across all times.

I hadn't been to CPK in ages. I had time before my movie to get a late lunch. Aside from the fun salad on a pizza, I ordered the white wine flight--equally fun. I'd certainly go back there again. Sure beats waiting in the lines of the other popular chains in Fairfax Corner!

Friday night after a very long and arduous work week, we stopped in for a quick meal for the first time at this location. Generally we have enjoyed California Pizza in Chicago. We sat at the bar and were served by Dobrin. The BBQ Pizza was, as always, outstanding. The Caramelized peach salad was over the top good. Hard to... More

California Pizza Kitchen is a great family restaurant. The field greens and Waldorf salads are both good. My husband and I like to order a half salad and share a margarita pizza......yum! It is very crowded, so go a little early. Service is great! It is also a convenient restaurant to go to before or after the movies as the... More

CPK has changed its menu over the years, sometimes for good, sometimes not. This location turns out consistent food and does it with a smile and in a timely manner. It's the only CPK I go to.

We go here on the nights we go to the movies. On weekends its crowded and there is a wait time to be seated. Their food is good and fresh, They are also quick to bring out the appetizers and main dishes. A good place for lunch or dinner!

Loved their lunch duos. I had pizza and salad and another friend had the salad and sandwich. It was all very good, and since it was my friend's birthday, she got a free ice-cream topped brownie. Great service!
