Two strikes...I won't be back. VERY slow service, and incorrect orders. The location is very busy with difficult parking due to the theaters. I was only there during peak hours. Generally, the CPK food is very good. Maybe it's good here when it's slow.

The pizzas are great because you can get a regular, thin or flatbread and the combinations of toppings are really good. The salads are excellent, big portions and lots of really fresh, delicious ingredients. The service is fine and the location is great right there in Fairfax Corner. They have a lot of good lunch specials, too.

I always come here for quick lunch and will order the lunch set. It's enough and reasonable for me. Good ambiance and friendly server. I love the farmer's market soup and the chicken sandwich

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.
