“Great break from the Mall - place to re-group”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

In the mall so a great place to eat, relax and regroup. Get a window seat for people watching. Clean, bright, airy. The waiter was excellent taking time to explain the menu and make suggestions. I had the meat variety pizza, very thin and tasty. Wife had the pasta and could not eat it all. Pretty much a standard California Grill experience. Price is not cheap when you consider other similar venues in the area but it is convenient. Place was decorated for Veterans Day and I appreciate what management did for vets with a free entre and drink, very nice gesture.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

I like California pizza kitchen. They have a varied menu not just pizza. The pizzas are tasty but they also offer great salads, pasta, salmon, chicken. I have eaten here several times and never had a poor meal.

“Fab food, great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2011

The title says it all, whether you eat the pizzas or try their individual dishes, you wont be disappointed. Fresh, tasty, and none of the heavy 'surprise' calories.
