“Good food, SLOW service”

California Pizza Kitchen
Ranked #12 of 31 Restaurants in Short Hills
Price range: $15 - $20
Restaurant details
Reviewed May 23, 2013

I've been to several CPKs around the country. I've eaten at this location twice. The first time I experienced perhaps the slowest service I've ever had at any restaurant. I was in town again about a month later and because it is convenient decided to give them a second chance. While not as slow as the first time, it was still a long wait. The staff was friendly, but did not check in to give updates or apologize for the obviously slow food delivery. I agree with other posts that the staff seems preoccupied at times and in their own world. The cedar plank salmon was really good, but not worth the wait.

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.

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.

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.
