Food was what we expected from CPK: sesame ginger chicken dumplings delicious as usual. Quinoa + arugula salad great. Wild mushroom pizza with truffle oil scrumptious. Service a tad slow (think they were a server short) per my experience with the chain. Biggest surprise was the restaurant's (and, seemingly, city's) tolerance of the homeless: a rambling, probably drunk man had... More

In the last couple years, shrimp spaghetti king paw is my favorite dish, so lavorful and spicy.. yummy. Butter cake with ice cream is awesome. Service is consistently good, I really enjoy the food and hospitality of California pizza kitchen specialty in San Luis Obispo...

Visiting SLO we came across CPK while walking down the street searching for the right place to eat! We were happy with their pizza and the location was modern and clean. Staff was very friendly and attentive.

Sometimes you need to pay a lil extra for a pizza that satisfies the core of your very being. The servers are awesome and totally accepting of my stoner shenanigans. I recommend the margarita pizza.

Love CPK - a great way to sample international flavors at a single table - all delicious and fun!! From Italy to Thailand, Mexico to North Carolina, there's a fine variety, and no airport lines either!!

The cinema 7 is in the same outdoor mall, so we go to CPK after the movies. If you have been to a CPK, you will recognize this one. Same creative pizzas, salads, pasta, and sandwiches. Good family atmosphere. Service can be slow, as it looks like there are not enough staff.

We were a group of eight, and made reservations in advance. Our table was waiting at the reserved time. We all enjoyed our pizzas, which had some interesting ingredients on some. I had a California Club Pizza, which was a salad and a pizza in one. Different, but very good. Lots of brews on tap to choose from. I would... More

Was downtown SLO so grabbed a bite to eat. My daughter and I shared a veggie salad. It was light and fresh and dressing was in modest amount. I requested and received extra olive oil and balsamic vinegar to add dressing. My husband had Kao Pung spaghetti and requested extra chilli pepper flakes to spice it up more. Service was... More

I've found that there is some variability in California Pizza Kitchens. This one is a very good one. The food is very consistent, and the service is excellent. The manger, Brady, is very attentive to customer needs, and if there is anproblem, he will make it right, pronto. On our last visit, we tried a new pizza, and we didn't... More

Clean and friendly place to eat. Pizza is good with no a lot of dough in the middle. Crust is tasty. I am glad we went there.
