In 1985 two California lawyers decided on a new career path. They saw what Wolfgang Puck had started--gourmet California pizzas. They smartly hired the pizza chef from Spago who developed the menu for them, including the very different BBQ Chicken Pizza. The restaurant took off...More

You can't go wrong here. You can see from my reviews that I have eaten at good restaurants around the world. I have to say, the flavors here rival top restaurants. My son always has the pizza, which is excellent. I had the new garlic...More

Been to this restaurant a bunch of times at other locations and the pod is always great and the service always stinks. First time at this location and my 5 year old wanted to get lunch here...I was dreading the experience. However to my surprise,...More

I used to frequent this CPK regularly when I worked closer, but I've found my old love again, I remembered the customer service in the call ahead ordering is really good. They try to make sure they get your order correct, although, that doesn't always...More
