I have always loved most CPK places I have been too. This one was up to that known standard as well. The front desk lady was very nice. I had a BBQ chicken pizza - which was surprisingly not that great. All my previous choices at CPK were awesome. However this one was a little too dry and a little... More

Went to the Short Hills Mall recently with my wife and we stopped here for lunch. Quite honestly I thought it was about the worst pizza I ever had. The only reason I gave it 2 stars instead of one is because the waitress was attentive and friendly. Seriously with all the pizza places a stones throw from here, why... More

CPK has good salads and their red velvet cake is second to none. I like their cranberry cooler too. It's a good place to visit at the mall.

The food was good and the service was very friendly. The waitstaff are very patient and nice. The view of this restaurant faces a parking lot and they do not serve wine - or any alcohol. You can BYOB but it is so strange to not have a glass of wine with dinner here!

We went for a gluten free pizza, not bad at all. The specility salads are large enough for two, glad that they offer a small as an option. Clean and friendly.

I have been going to this CPK for years. The service is always excellent-and the food is always very good. Had the Waldorf Salad and Mexican pizza on the last visit and it was excellent. The server was very kind and patient with our requests for changes to a few things with our meal. I am never disappointed here.
