“Loud Lunch Music”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

After asking the staff to turn down the loud music (of course they did not), I walked out of the restaurant before ordering my meal. It was mid-week lunch time, the restaurant was half full. Not interested in returning.

“Pizza is Tops”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2012

We stopped by this location while visiting the DC area and taking in a bit of shopping and we were not disappointed by our choice. Although this may be a chain, the menu choices for pizza were very diverse and interesting - comparable to those at some of the fancier, bistro style pizza locations.
We shared the pear & gargonzola and the four seasons pizza - both of which we were able to order thin crust & whole wheat. All their pizzas allow for the crust to be prepared to your preference.
I would definately return to this location or another California Pizza Kitchen location should the opportunity arise.

“Shopping Mall Hit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2012

Enjoyed recent dinner at this Bethesda Mall location of this franchise.Typical menu for this franchise. We tried new app on the menu or variety of spring rolls. I had pasta with shrimp and mushroom that was well prepared. This location is well run and our server was Nancy was very helpful. Good place to stop after shopping or while traveling in DC area.
