A good, varied menu and friendly wait staff made a late night meal pleasurable for tired travelers in the midst of a busy mall.

This chain restaurant has cut way down on the ingredients on their pizzas to the point that you could not find the cheese and we counted 4 pieces of chicken on our bbq chk pizza. Service was excellent so it is a shame that they are cutting back so much. Won't return.

Our party of four were all pleased with their dinners at California Pizza Kitchen. My wife and I both had the Grilled Chicken Chimichurri which was excellent. Nicely grilled chicken, a nice sauce with a bit of a kick, and a medley of pan fried vegetables all nicely done. I would guess the cedar plank salmon would also be good.

One in our party had BBQ chicken pizza which was rated excellent. And one very good chicken Ceasar salad. Also lots of unique salads to choose from as well as a few gluten free pizza choices and some creative vegetarian and vegan dishes.

Service was courteous and efficient. All in all a very good place to eat and you can spend a few hours walking around in beautiful International Plaza Mall.

California Pizza Kitchen has great salads and pizza, good kids menu, nice drink selections and wine too. Located in the mall by Nordstrom so good shopping before and after.

My daughter has celiac disease and can't eat anything with gluten in it. Pizza places are a hit-or-miss as far as getting a gluten-free meal goes. After reading some reviews online, we decided to try CPK. Sure enough, they have a gluten-free menu, but there are only 3 pizzas on it. They claim that they can make any pizza gluten-free but when we spoke to the server and explained my daughter's affliction, she talked to the chef and they said that they could not guarantee that there would not be any cross-contamination, and thus could not guarantee the pizza being gluten-free. The 3 listed on the menu were certified to be gluten-free though. We ordered 3 pizzas, 1 gluten-free and 2 regular, and I must say, they all were very good. Definitely a place to eat again, and I'm delighted to see a gluten-free menu popping up on many more restaurants.
