We like to go to CPK on those nights when we want a delicious salad with a variety of offerings. Their pizzas are very tasty with thin crusts and a vast variety of unusual, but tasty, toppings. We find the service to be very good with friendly, young servers. The recently remodeled interior is contemporary, with an industrial feel, and... More

Although I have often visited CPK for take out it had been years since I had eaten in the store. Was pleasantly surprised by the upgraded decor. A cool, rustic vibe made the visit more enjoyable. Also some new menu items. Love the small plates as can order a couple of things - new flatbreads are great!

CPK has a diverse menu of really cool things. Anyone should be able to find something they like. We were a group of 8 including kids & the staff was wet accommodating & really friendly. Our food orders were all correct with large portions. Everything looked really fresh & was bursting with flavor. Really appreciated that they didn't rush us... More

They just re modeled so the seating arrangements are a little different. Less booths, more big tables, and more weird high tables. The kids love the kids menu the regular menu is fine. It is sometimes a challenge to get just a regular pasta dish (Alfredo) instead of their version (garlic Alfredo). But it usually turns into a nice night... More

The California Pizza Kitchen is an upscale, chain restaurant with an innovative menu. The menu has something for everyone: unique pizzas, pastas, salads, desserts and more. And this location did not disappoint. I ordered the BBQ Chicken Pizza. It was delicious. The service was good! Ask for bread and olive oil while you are waiting for your meals to arrive... More

In a town that doesn't seem to care about good food, this is a good place for a reasonable priced meal that is ok. Its not bad, but for MV it might be the best in town.

When I first looked at the menu for lunch I was a little disappointed that there was nothing that I could have without spending $20 which I didn't feel like doing for an quick lunch. I then saw the small plate menu and that was perfect. The prices were excellent and so was the portions and the food
