“Noisy, long wait.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2011

Gone her tons of times. Service is getting better, but pizzas are getting worse. Wait is usually long, strollers jam up outside entrance. Menu changes have not been for the better.

“WORSE SERVICE ANYWHERE-AVERAGE FOOD”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2011

We waited 30 minutes to get seated for lunch. We then sat us down, we had to ask them
to wipe the table down that they neglected to do (should have been done before we were seated). Ordered a diet coke with lime and had to ask 3 times for the lime. Finally, the manager brought it over. The table next to us were seated after us and were served before they brought out our appetizer. We had to ask the manager again to check our order since the 2 wait staff never bothered to come back. They brought out our appetizer, salad AND
lunch all at the same time. We did not say anything but the purpose of the appetizer was to eat it first. Then, waited another 10 minutes for our bill. Food was average at best and overpriced - $36.00 for 2 soft drinks, a FREE appetizer, a appetizer salad we shared and a small pizza we shared. Definitely need to up the customer service. Would not go back,.

“Prices too high”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2011

Tried a pizza here and we found it only average but at a very high cost. The atmosphere is nice and service is good, but a regular pizza should never be this high.

“Very pleasant visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2011

I went with my family of 4 and I was very satisfied with my visit. I have never been dissapointed at any california pizza kitchen locations, and this one certainly was great. Quick service, very friendly staff! Atmosphere was the best part, it felt very homely, and just an all out great experience, especially with family. awesome ambience
