“California Pizza Kitchen”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

California Pizza Kitchen. This place is located within Short Hills Mall. The food is good but the wait staff is sometimes a little preoccupied doing other things than tending to the guests.

“Not what expected”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

I have been to three CPK's and this one was not the best. This is probably the only one without a liquor license. The staff is very accommodating and friendly, but they seem a little unorganized and mismanaged. The food of course is good, but without the usual alcoholic beverage it was not the same.

“Fun, great unusual pizzas”
Reviewed April 14, 2012

This is a good place to go for a dinner with your friends on a weeknight. It's located in the Short Hills Mall. The food is very, very good; there's a reason people often wait 1/2 hour to get in. It's fairly reasonably priced. While the pizzas are delicious (they're individual pizzas), the salads are truly remarkable, like the Moroccan one. Good sized portions, and they don't rush you.

Nice place to sit, relax and have lunch or dinner when you are shopping at short hills malls. The atmosphere is great and the food is good just like any othe CPK in the country.

“Noisy, long wait.”
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.
