We like to go to CPK here often. The staff is always welcoming and attentive. The food is always good. We LOVE the butter cake for dessert. Also, great value if you join their rewards program.

We took the family there on a late dinner (8pm) and it was our first time at this place. It was pretty empty so we thought we would get quick service. We did, the service was quick and the waitress was very pleasant. What we didn't expect was poor food. My wife liked her salad but I got a Garlic... More

Bayshore Mall location of national chain. Nice menu of interesting pizza dishes, salads and health(ier) dishes. Booths and tables. Seating is available to watch the pizza and prep areas. Outdoor seating is available for pleasant weather. Parking in lots and on street. Very good.

I wouldn't call the ambience romantic, so why is it so dark in here? Couldn't read the menu because of the lack of lighting. Waitress suggested that if I had a smart phone I could use the flashlight. Thanks, I hadn't thought of that. Are they trying to save money on electricity? Or is there something that they don't want... More

It's OK but the pizza we ordered didn't have many toppings and didn't have much flavor. I saw other food being delivered that looked good. The staff was very good.

We had a very friendly server who offered good menu selections. Drinks were timely delivered as were the salads and food. The only thing that kept this from a 5 out of 5 was the lack of bread being brought to the table and accompanying the meal.

There are many great things that I can say about California Pizza Kitchen, because it has always been one of my favorites... However, I will only be focusing on one thing today... The Jamaican Jerk Chicken Pizza. I took one bite, and it literally changed my life. It was sooo delicious! If you're not afraid of a little kick/heat, then... More

Restaurant was clean, atmophere pleasant, waitress (Sarah) was wonderful but the menu was off-putting and lacking bonified vegan choices. When I asked (Why should a patron have to ask? Vegan choices should be right on the menu) what was vegan, the waitress left and then returned with a menu-like card that listed the allergens and notes about lacto-ovo vegetarian, ovo-vegetarian,...

We go to this CPK 6-8 times a year and usually have a reasonably pleasant experience. Today though I found a small dead bug in my chicken about 1/2 way through the dish. I showed the server and he asked if I was done or wanted them to remake. I had them remake it. The manager delivered the replacement dish... More

We enjoy going to CPK however parking is hard to find near by. We love their salads and they have an awesome outdoor seating area that is heated when needed.
