We haven't been here in months. Decided to go on the way home from work. Simply delicious. Our food was made to order, bread was fantastic, strawberry short cake to die for! Get there quick before the strawberry shortcake is gone.

Came here one afternoon with my mom on a whim to enjoy some delicious more fancy food! Right away we were greeted and offered many delicious drinks from our waitress who smiled and told us her favorites. I ordered a delicious pizza which was simply amazing and my mom had a spicy shrimp and peanut pasta which was mouth-watering delicious.... More

We sat at bar during lunch- just when it opened. Restaurant not very busy yet. Bartender/server had rude greeting. More concerned with visiting with her family and young child who were also at bar then doing her job. Also flirting with another customer. Our food sat ready under warmers (which were not on) for over 15 minutes (we could see... More

We had the wild mushroom pizza and the spinach artichoke. We enjoyed the honey whole wheat dough and the regular. We had these delivered and enjoyed them a great deal!

Four fun female friends met for birthday celebrations last week. We were happy to eat at the California Pizza Kitchen. Brett was our server and was sweet, kind, attentive, and we were happy to be served by him. He had just celebrated HIS birthday. We chose the veggie salad, and veggie pizza and were very pleased with our selections. The... More

Our server was Joel and he is excellent! He offered his ideas on the best items on the menu and he was dead on! We ordered several gluten free pizzas with his suggestions on toppings and it was really good. The food was served promptly and it was perfect. Joel kept our drinks refreshed and offered to go drinks. Much... More

Conveniently located in the Uptown shopping center, this was easily accessible for a quick lunch. They have specials, which I selected; a 7" pizza with choice of soup or salad. Also, had the raspberry lemonade, which was delicious. The server was very attentive, re: drink refills, etc. I was there at the height of lunch hour, and the food was... More

I usually prefer local, one of a kind restaurants, but CPK was handy for a group of friends meeting for lunch. It was the first visit for 4 out of the 5 of us, so the manager stopped by our table and encouraged us each to try something that might be a little outside our usual; if you don't like... More

they have gluten free options for those who want it. they let our large party have separate checks and i think everyone at the table had a special request. it took a bit longer but it happened.
