My grandson and I decided to get lunch before heading into the theater and thought we couldn't go wrong with pizza. The kid's menu was easy enough to decipher for my grandson, but I had multiple places to look for lunch options. The menus were at the table, which I don't think is how CPK usually does it elsewhere.

Again, it is nice to go to a restaurant when it is empty, but the service follow the emptiness. It is a chain, so you know what you get when you go there.

I hadn't been to this restaurant in over a year and I was impressed with a few improvements they have made. First, they use to have white sliced sandwich bread un-toasted with cold butter as the appetizer. Now they have sourdough toasted bread with olive oil and herbs. Simple but great change. The bacon in the California Cobb is thicker... More

We shared a white pizza with spinach, bacon and cheese and had salads as well. Good food, great service, bright airy restaurant. And it was just across the street from the theatre where we were going next.

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
