They had the old style Garlic Chicken Pizza on the menu. It was excellent, as was the rest of the food.

Service was a little slow. Our waiter must have been new, because he did not even know what Romano and Parmigiano cheeses were.

Got busy super fast for lunch. So I'd suggest that you get there before noon on a Sunday.

Notwithstanding the above, we will return next time we are in the area.

We visit 'CPK' regularly with the family when in Menlo Park on vacation. It is a firm favorite with the children and we always find the staff to be good with children as well as very efficient. Obviously the pizzas are great, but we also like the salads.

The sweets are awesome (we come from the UK so are not used to such magnificent desserts).

A very popular restaurant. You may have to wait quite a while for a table in early evening.

My fiance had never been to a California Pizza Kitchen, despite LOVING pizza and living in California, so we came here after some wedding registry action in the Stanford Shopping Center, and we had a really delicious meal!

The menu could use some more vegetarian options, but we found some things we wanted to try. We got the wild mushroom pizza on their whole wheat crust (killer!!) and the caramelized peach salad subbing out bleu cheese for goat cheese. Also killer. We finished everything and the bill was completely reasonable.

They also offer a deal for two people eating together: an appetizer, two entrees, and dessert for $30. You have to be hungry, but it sounds like you'd get your money's worth!

We'd like to come back... Especially if they get more vegetarian options on their menu! Isn't vegetarianism very Californian....?

I already knew their wonderful pizzas, but this time I tryed a pasta with shrimp. Unfortunately I forgot the name of this choice, but the taste is unforgettable.
