We had dinner as a family. We loved the pizza and the salad was so delicious. We ordered the salad that is really crunchy. The dressing for the bread is really good.

The CPK was very...very busy and as you should except for a Saturday night. A party of 5, we were seated in 15 minutes. The service was prompt and the hot was excellent. We never had to ask for refills because the server was on top of it. The pizzas, salads and deserts were all very good. CPK is located... More

I always get the Thai Chicken Pizza and my husband always get the BLT pizza (even though it's no longer on the menu, they will still make it for you.) and we've never been disappointed. They also make great martinis and have delicious tiramisu.

We had a enjoyable lunch experience while shopping. The five of us were seated immediately by a friendly greeter. Our waitress was there as we were seated with menus. The atmosphere was very clean and we had a view of the wood fired oven. We had a wide variety of meals from salads, pizza and pasta. Everyone enjoyed their meals.... More

First, if trying to find this place in the promenade maze, just head towards the edwards movies and it's there. The welcome and greet and servers was really friendly, but it seems like they are struggling with something behind the scenes ... but there is no problem with front of house. And when the small plates were brought out from... More

I have to agree with billionsandnocure. Something isn't right about this CPK. Our server was nice. That is the only good thing I can say. A couple people in my group of 7 adults, 1 child ordered appetizers. Those who ordered the appetizers were pleased. The kid enjoyed his pizza, he always likes his food. Everything else pretty much tasted... More

I love their Italian sandwich!! The lentil soup is to die for, maybe it was split pea I don't remember but it was delicious!! I have never had a bad meal here. The gyoza type appetizer is my favorite starter. Red velvet cake was a surprise. It actually was very very good. I would order that again in a heartbeat.... More

Unfortunately, this particular CPK does not meet the standards of the CPK'S that I have enjoyed. NO COMPARISON :( not sure what is going on here... STRANGE AS I HAVE EXPERIENCED THE CONTRARY AT OTHER CPK LOCATIONS! Cons~ -No welcome greeting. -No hostess when we walked in, stood there awkwardly not knowing what to think or do. -The ambiance as... More

I am not much of a pizza lover and met up with some friends who had me try the pear , cheese and salad pizza. What can I say, I got hooked. Service was okay, perhaps because it was very busy, place was clean and good location. I will definitely visit another California pizza kitchen and perhaps try another unique... More
