This CPK location is in the Montgomery Mall in Bethesda.. Always busy, but always consistently preparing great pizzas, salads and other assorted dishes. Excellent and creative versions of food fir every taste and desire. They manage to do excellent soups and deserts as well. Take out orders are remarkably well packaged and expertly prepared. You cannot go wrong at this location of the California Pizza Kitchen.

We live next door to California pizza and eat there quite often.
The food is always fresh and good. Their pizzas are the best. The ambiance is mixed depending when you go there. We have been there when it is peaceful and pleasant, other times at 7pm during the week we had to deal with young uncontrollable children: screaming, slamming fork or spoon on the table with parents completely inconsiderate of the lieu.
Will restaurants have some rules about parents being parents? I am sure looking for that soon.
Yes, I recommend it.

Can count on good reliable food, pizzas, pasta, tacos, etc. Does well with large groups. Courteous attentive service.

Ended up here because we went to have lunch at Legal's Seafood and found that it had closed. I had the Ceasar Salad with salmon and my buddy had the same with grilled chicken and it was "decent." The greens were fresh, the salmon was tasty, the house dressing was good, but there was only a few pieces of salmon with lots of croutons. I'm not a pizza eater, so can't comment on their signature dish, but I wouldn't hesitate to return.

I used to come here all the time for a quick and good lunch.
Now the pizza is greasy, the bread is smaller, and the service was very average.
We had to ask several times for more drinks and things like grated cheese for the pizza.

The worst thing is the hostess- she looks mean and stands at the door chewing gum and staring down anyone who enters- it is uncomfortable to watch her. People who work here must be very unhappy. Also, they have made the music so loud it is difficult to carry on a conversation.

I think there are better places to eat at this mall, or go to a different CPK- this one is very loud and the staff makes the meal an unhappy dining experience.
