My CPK experiences never let down. Always good food. Great staff. Had the seasonal mushroom and pasta dish. Huge mushrooms and different varietals.

My boss took us here for lunch on a rainy weekday just prior to Christmas as sort of a "let's get out of the office" lunch break. CPKs are a standard chain that produce good pizza's and California-Italian fare. Overall, you'll know what to expect from the food, the service, and the interior decor - all above average/very good.

We've been to several different California Pizza Kitchens around Southern California and Las Vegas and have found them to be consistently good places to dine. This location at the Irvine Spectrum Shopping Center was in keeping with really great service and great food items. We had salads and Margherita pizza as well as flatbread appetizers. All were good eats and... More

Went there on a Saturday night during peak dinner hour. The wait for a table was reasonably short considering the time we went and was accurate to their time estimate. The mahi-mahi taco plate and chicken piccata both tasted very good and were prepared to order. The portions and pricing were about right. The atmosphere was okay, the place was... More

I ordered pepperoni and sausage pizza. Around $16.00. Large enough for one person, would serve two only as light meal. Pizza was very good. Others in party tried fish, size of servings were ample.

I recall the food was satisfactory on my last visit, but nothing to make it memorable. I do, however, recall the service was stretched; the poor girl serving us was running from table to table; got the impression that place was under-staffed on the evening.

We were a group of ten meeting at our office. We ordered for delivery and got 10 sandwhiches. They were awful. All bread and hardly any ingredients. I'm talking about an 2 inch piece of thin turkey or chicken with some flavored mustard on a piece of crusted bread. All the sandwhiches were like this. Really! Takeout did not provide... More

Staff was very friendly. Service was good. Ordered a pizza and chips and they included some bread and olive oil. The chips and dip was pretty good. The dip was spicy in a good way. The bread and olive oil was really good. I actually preferred it over the chips. The pizza is a good size. It is not huge... More
