CPK Fairfax Corner has undergone a remodel that brightens and freshens this popular spot. The menu as well has been tweaked to offer lighter fare and options for folks looking for simpler meals and gluten and allergen free options. I chose one of the lunch duos from the reimagined menu--a hearty harvest soup and a Ceasar salad which came with... More

Decent pizza/sub place and they had a few brews on tap as well that were not too shabby. I'd go back.

I used to really enjoy CPK before I couldn't eat gluten. Then I still enjoyed the Roasted Veggie Salad with Salmon whenever my hubby wanted a pizza fix. I was pleasantly surprised to find out they now have gluten free pizza. They have a small GF pizza menu for true Celiac's but you can get any pizza on a GF... More

Our waiter was very good and attentive. The food is excellent although a little pricey. Having eaten pizza in Italy and not paid this much for it, California Pizza Kitchen may want to bring their prices down just a bit. It's good, but not great. We enjoyed our visit to this location though!

Busy restaurant in a busy area, but once you get a table, has a great lively atmosphere, good pizza, and cold draft brews.

My favorite salad from anywhere! I love it plain or with added salmon. A half size portion is plenty big enough for one adult.

Service and Atmosphere are satisfactory. Fried macaroni and cheese balls were just okay. Very small for the price and would not order again. Spicy quesadilla appetizer was tasty a good value. Would order again. Pear and gorgonzola pizza was terrific. Jamaican jerk chicken pizza was spicy but pretty popular at the table. Hawaiian BBQ Chicken pizza is my all time... More

Multiple pizza choices, good staff, had to wait for a table but that was okay. Large slices so took rest home would go again.

If you can look past the underpaid, underage, immature staff that operate this place and simply rate the food it still doesn't deserve more than 2 stars. One for serving food that isn't poisonous and the other for being able do prepare the food in a timely manner. I hadn't been to one of those places in many years and... More

The tortilla spring rolls were good but the size was small. BBQ Chicken pizza was very good. My favorite was tostada chicken pizza. It had all the elements of Mexican taste with crunchy tostada ribbons. Spicy Chipotle pizza was also very good with right amount of spicy sauce. The tiramisu was out of this world. But the server said that... More
