“nice surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

It was a Sunday, and downtown Salt Lake City seemed rather like a ghost town - I suppose everyone but my friend & I were at church. We had just visited the Planetarium, and we were walking around looking for a place that was open for lunch. The California Pizza Kitchen was open, so we decided to give it a try. The server was super friendly, and the pizza was very good. It was a very nice surprise.

“Not so California”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

As franchise go I'm usually please with California Pizza Kitchen but this was not a typical experience. Our server was disengage and the food was cold and tasteless. We were there late for lunch and that may have contribute to the lack of good service.

“Butter Cake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

Likes: Butter Cake
Dislikes: Too much Butter Cake
This is a family place in the Gateway. They do have a good outdoor seating area where you can get in some people watching on a Friday evening. Food is good, prices and service are average...but save room for that Butter Cake!
