First time at California Pizza Kitchen, very casual atmosphere, but would be ideal for a lunch date/dinner as well. There are a lot of choices on the menu and to choose from. I ordered the Jamaican Jerk Chicken pizza. It was okay at best. Really wasn't feeling the sweet flavor. Wait staff was friendly, but they forgot my Bianco flatbread.... More

For a place called California Pizza Kitchen I'd expect better quality pizza. I got a BBQ chicken pizza, avaocado egg rolls and Kung Pao pasta with shrimp. The best thing was the appetizer, egg rolls. The pizza was small and bland to have ingredients that should be full of flavor. I could have had much better pizza from the frozen... More

After leaving another establishment due to the wait and bad service, a family of 4 ended up here. And it was great. The food was better than I expected and everyone left happy. The cauliflower appetizer was the best part of the entire meal. The kids' meals were very reasonably priced and my picky kids ate it happily.

This was our first visit to a CPK. We enjoyed the buffalo cauliflower bites, but felt they were overpriced at $6.99 and were VERY spicy. We also split a salad that was $15. Again, both items were delicious, and the service was good. We just felt that it was a little pricey for what it was.

Meals at CPK are always fresh and flavorful. The weather was perfect so we had lunch on the patio. I love their small plates and we shared a flatbread and each had an arugula and asparagus salad. Everything was delicious!

Hostess staff needs to learn better people skills. Told us it would be 10 minutes to get a table. I asked if we could sit at bar. Reply was yes, then about 20 minutes later she is calling out my name to bring us to table. We were eating already. Very confusing. Bartender took care of us. Very friendly and... More

It has been a while since I was there, but the pizza is made fresh. I love the BLT Pizza!! It is a little different, but so good!! Good service and a nice place to have lunch or dinner.

Wild Mushroom pizza was wonderful. Restaurant was clean. We came early on Friday evening, and were seated quickly. Our server Jack was great! All of the staff were very friendly. Prices acceptable.
