Once upon a time, boys and girls, the California Pizza Kitchen was something special. Then the founders - lawyers if you can believe that - sold out to some corporate entity. BORING!

I've gone into this California Pizza Kitchen multiple times. It's a typical CPK in a mall setting. The hostess was a super nice college student this time, but the waitress wasn't good or bad. She seemed a little distracted or busy. The menu has a fair selection of salads and pizzas. I would classify this as lite fair. I don't... More

We frequent this place at least once a month. The food is always good and the orders are rarely wrong, but sometimes we have to wait too long for our order. The wait staff is very inconsistent.

This restaurant is located inside the mall in Ventura. The food was delicious and the service was exceptional. Our server was extremely polite, as was the entire staff. We love CPK and this is the best one we've visited yet. The portions are large. Two people could easily split a pizza and salad. Perfection.

I ate here last weekend and really noticed how small the portions have become. I could count the arugula on my salad (10 leaves) and the asparagus was so minimal with 3 one inch pieces on the plate! Although it was one of their small plate salads, it was ridiculously small and quite the rip off. When I asked where... More

I felt like I was eating food made weeks ago. Everything seemed like processed food. If you are into organic food, which I'm not, you'd never eat here.

It's just a great place to eat. Good menu selections, good service. Salads should be split. If your udecided, get the salad/pizza. It's unique.

I enjoy the Garlic chicken pizza. Not a red sauce pizza, but delicious with white cheeses, chopped garlic, chicken and onions. The faces of the servers come and go but the service is decent but the location is in the local mall so not much on atmosphere.

When my husband and I moved to Ventura over 2 years ago, we were taken to California Pizza Kitchen in the Pacific View Mall and enjoyed the food and service. We realized we hadn't gone in awhile so we went a few weeks ago and it is like a totally different restaurant. The young hostess was bored out of her... More
