I tried CPK for the first time and was impressed. The asparagas and arugula salad was great, as was the margherita pizza. Everyone in our party was happy with the food, and my 6 year old grandson finished all of his strawberry smoothie, pizza and extra bread ---After saying he wasn't hungry when we arrived! We will be back.

Go straight to the bar! CPK Riverside's bar staff are friendly and fast. It's a great way to get served fast without waiting for a table. Here's what to order: Get the asparagus and arugula salad so that you won't be seeing stars because the pizzas take time. Then go thin crust, VERY similar to what I've had in Sicily.... More

They have so much more on their menu than just pizza. I struck 'gold' with their savory mediterranean salad vinaigrette with cranberries and dates. Others in my party enjoyed designer pasta or pannini-style sandwiches. They underscore the "California" moniker by offering avocado on nearly everything. Prices were moderate, considering the variety they present on the huge menu. The facility was... More

Love their salads there. It isn't just for pizza, but that is good too. Have a leisurely lunch with friends and never feel rushed to leave. Attentive service, but not hovering.

This place is hopping! the food is fab! The waitress told us about a different dish to try, and she said if we did like it, we could order something else without a charge. the table they set us next to was a very loud party of drunks, they were having a good time, so did not fault them for...

CPK at Riverside Plaza is a very popular and busy restaurant. We have learned to look for a place at the bar instead of waiting for a table and we usually can get right in. Last time we started with the zippy chicken quesadilla ... excellent and spicy. I had the waldorf salad (full) and even after splitting it, still... More

Anytime my husband & I have a "date night" at the Plaza, you can believe that CPK will be our choice for dinner. The Avocado Egg Rolls to start, a Cesar Salad & Pizza to share really hits the spot. And they always do their best to make any drink that my husband throws at them, so long as he... More
