“Good pizza, good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

The service was excellent, and quick with ordering and food delivery to the table. The atmosphere was busy, but not rushed. Good sized portions for hungry people. There is an outdoor seating area which has coolers for the hotter months.

“To be avoided”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

Went there twice for mains pizza and salad. Both times very disappointed. Tasteless food, careless service. The pizzas dont deserve the designation.

“You're not in Kansas anymore...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

I normally love California Pizza Kitchen. I appreciate the consistency from location to location, knowing I can get my favorites and they always taste delicious. This location was very busy and therefore the service was very slow and unattentive. Once we were served, we found that the food quality was not as good as what we're used to in the States. The pizza was fine, but not wonderful. Our salad was fairly close to the US preparation, so that was good. All in all, our experience was average - but below average for a CPK. If you go, just be prepared that particular food items may not taste like your favorites from home.
