Went to this restaurant last night for dinner, a cheery hostess seated us promptly in a booth next to the bar and that was it, no server ever came to our table. They were not that busy and seemed to have plenty of servers working. We waited about 15 min and left went to Panera,

We eat here all the time with our family. The pizzas are great (especially the signature BBQ chicken) and so are the salads. We've never had anything that we didn't like.

This was my first time eating in a California Pizza Kitchen.....I was surprised by the variety of choices on the menu - I think most would find something to meet their eating preferences here. I had a Moroccan salad - it was a bit different in that it had seasoned chicken and chopped dates and Marconi almonds as an accent.... More

We go the CPK often. This is a well-run branch. We love the variety of foods they offer, and it is consistent. We love the shrimp scampi made with zucchini noodles and garlic. Also, their salads are nice and fresh. Service can be spotty, if they are busy. I suggest sitting at the counter, if you are in a hurry... More

We decided to try the California Pizza Kitchen for the first time. I really liked the menu options. We settled for some pizza going for both normal thin base and gluten free. Both options were great. Didn't wait long, food was hot, tastes, and service was good. I also liked the decor and feel inside the restaurant. The fact that... More

Chain restaurant over priced pizza. Specials and Happy hour non existent. Great location for shoppers.

We frequent CPK at least once a month for lunch and/or dinner and have never been disappointed. In the past few years we've been frequenting this particular CPK, everything we have tried has been hot, tasty and delicious! Some of our favorites are the Italian Chopped Salad, Spaghetti Bolognese, a variety of their flatbread pizzas, and their pork chops. Our... More

My favorite is the Sicilian Pizza. This is light on the cheese and just right on the meats. What a fine restaurant to count on no matter in which town I find myself.

Not what you would normally get at a "pizza" place. It was great. I also had a daiquiri which tasted like a long pour. I didn't complain. Food was good drinks were greAt! We sat on the patio on a nice Florida day. It was a great lunch.

The entree salads are the best of any restaurant we have tried and we have tried many. Never had better than the Moroccan salad. The Thai chicken pizza is flavorful and just right spicy and sweet. Service always good and management checking behind. Prices reasonable. What's not to like.
