After spending 18 hours travelling from home in the UK to our hotel in San Francisco we wanted something quick, filling and tasty. CPK fulfilled all these requirements and the staff was attentive without being too intrusive. Whilst CPK may not be the most refined of restaurants, the food was great as was the value for money.

Came to eat here towards the end of August. Hadn't booked but was seated quickly and with no fuss. My colleague and I ordered a couple of pizza's and a bottle of wine.

After a not unreasonable wait (30 minutes or so), the waiter came out to apologise for the long delay and that our food would be coming soon. I'm not sure if we're just used to slower service in the UK but I didn't feel that the food was taking especially long and we were in no rush.

The pizza's came about 10 minutes later and were excellent and just the right sort of size for one person. During our meal the chef came out and apologised again for the delay and told us he'd be covering the cost of the pizza's - they were on the house! We tried to explain that it was absolutely fine and that he didn't have to do that, but he insisted!

After the pizza's we ordered a dessert to share, and the waiter told us that this would be on the house as well?! In the end, we only had to pay for our bottle of wine - so left a generous tip out of sheer guilt.

Honestly I couldn't fault any aspect of the meal - service was perfectly acceptable, and the waiter we had stopped by to chat a few times , the food was delicious, and the decor and ambience were nice.

We've eaten at many CPK's and thought we knew what we were in for. But this SF location just didn't do it for us, at all! The food just didn't pop and I felt a bit icky afterwards. In a city full of fantastic food opportunities, you can do much. much better.

This restaurant is in a good location but their service was so bad that we walked out. Lots of servers but they were more interested in chatting than taking customers. We had to wait a long to get seated and then sat there while numerous people walked by us. Evidently, their training and priorities are not where they need to be.
