“Always a Good Choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

So good that I ate here 3 times on a 5 day trip. It is close to the hotel. The food is great and its a nice place to wind down after work if you are on a business.

“Designer Pizza?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2008

Whoa!

There's nothing better than designer Pizza. California, USA home to the stars! The Golden State, home of the golden dream and bonanza economics. First the Gold Rush then the Gold Crush. There are more name brands in the States than there are brands. Even clothing designers have three tiers of brands. Even one brand has different names.

There's nothing better than designer Pizza. Wolfgang Puck's California Pizza Kitchen. Attach a name to a pizza, include progressive ingredient combination and book raise the price by 100% over the competitors.

BBQ Chicken, Whoa!
Thai, Whoa!
4 different cheeses, Whoa!

Wolfgang Puck's California Pizza kitchen only works because it is in California. Everything in Europe is reborn in the States, given a name, package and then considered new, exotic, A-brand. Whereas the European would not consider these ingredients progressive but stale. Whoa!

Would you like another refill? No? Okay, how about a to-go-box for that last slice of four cheese pizza?

It's okay for a chain. Prices are a little out there, but sometimes you get a craving for that BBQ Chicken pizza and you find yourself there.
