This is a great location for having lunch or dinner. Like the other CPK locations they have a great healthy menu and also great pizzas. There is also a full bar with two TV's/

I don't normally review chain restaurants but I am making an exception for the California Pizza in Pasadena. I experienced a dedicated wait staff and manager who took their time to ask if I had been there before and also asked if I was new to CPK. Based on this information, they treated me like royalty and comped me an... More

We attended All Saints Pasadena visiting on Sunday morning. Afterwards, we met friends at the almost contiguous CPK. I had not been to one in years. Our service was spotty at best, as they seemed overrun by people, but the food was good. At our table, the soup and small wedge salad and the Thai salad won out, but all... More

Other reviewers used "reliable" and "consistent," which are accurate terms. This location is downtown and easily accessible with ample elbow room. It has a wonderful dining atmosphere and a great wait-staff. I just lament that CPK has lost some of it allure by trading off its unique selection of pizzas for more mainstream meals. Not having eaten at a CPK... More

My waitress was so attentive and did everything except tap dance on my appetizer plate. I highly recommend the Jamaican barbecued chicken pizza. Just the right amounts of spice and sweet to make your taste buds dance with delight. Great location near the Westin.

I ate at this location twice. I generally like CPK. It's not the greatest food but the quality is usually reliable. My first meal wound up being comped because ten minutes after I ordered they discovered they were out of what I ordered. Comping me was overkill, but I sure appreciated it. During my second meal there I realized that... More

Very close to Westin hotel so I always stop when staying there. I can count on consistent food and menu.

This was just a good simple place to have a drink and a cheap bite to eat. Packed with people, it provided these two qualities excellently.

The food was OK as we ordered some pasta dishes and a specialty pizza. The atmosphere was a little wanting as the light was not quite right being in the evening. The lighting was a little weak and wasn't too romantic or flattering. The service was OK but it just wasn't quite a special experience.

The Chicken Barbeque Pizza is absolutely to die for. I love it! Service was a bit slow, seeing as though there was not too many other diners at the same time as myself and my colleagues, but nonetheless the food was great.
