Reviewed November 9, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

CPK serves gourmet style pizza and salads and is a good location when you want something other than your traditional NY style pizza.

“Olive Garden and Mellow Mushroom had a baby...”
Reviewed September 18, 2013 via mobile

Honestly the food is a solid good except for the Tiramisu that was a gooey mess. Yuck! The bartender which I had a clear view of took 30 min to make our cocktails. We were still drinking them when the entrees came! Fast food service is not their problem. We had to cancel our wine order since it didn't come and get a glass instead. No asking if we'd like coffee and we had to request dirty dishes leave the table. Some training might go a long way!

“Good pizza”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

We have been a rut for restaurant choices in the SouthPoint area, so we were happy to give the California Pizza Kitchen a try - especially after viewing their menu with many unique options. The husband ordered the bbq chicken pizza which looked amazing - he loved it. The portion size was a rather larger version of a personal pizza. He would do it again.
For me, having allergy issues - eating out is typically a trial.
They mentioned that they are working on bringing a gluten free pizza to the menu but it isnt developed quite yet. Their tortilla chips are made with corn flour, and It seemed if I had spent a bit more time looking over the menu and making inquiries, I may have had several options. However, our server wasn't overly accommodating in that area. I settled on the California cobb salad. The smokey tasting bacon was amazing - the chicken was so-so. The lettuce was another story. Disgusting, half browned iceburg.
Other salads being served appeared much better, so perhaps I had been happier had I made another selection.

Overall. they get a 4 star for the husband's opinion on his pizza and their fast service.
