Always consistent!

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.

I first ate at California Pizza in the early 90s--teaching every Monday night at a grad school across the street. I was smitten by their tasty pizza--I loved the BBQ chicken, and great salads. Spacious restaurant right off Colorado Blvd, and easy to get to.

It was our first experience here in California Pizza Kitchen and we were happy to be here. The pizza that we had was really really delicious. Also the salad was so good. Wine selection is good enough to choose from. The staff was friendly and helpful. So, we liked and will try it again.

My mom and I walked here from the Westin to grab a very late dinner. We had just finished decorating the venue for my wedding and making the flowers and didn't eat all day. Their pizzas are very good and the wine was pretty tasty too. Very clean and great service!
