I've gone here several times because I like the location. It is usually very good and only had one negative experience when I found a dead fly in my salad. The manager took care of it and offered a free dessert or another entree.

The other times were great, however. I really enjoy getting the small plates that are offered during lunch and get about 3 - 4 of them.

Overall a very good place to eat that won't kill your budget considering portions are huge.

With almost 20 varieties of Pizza ranging from Jamaican Jerk and Thai Chicken to BLT and Tostada, in addition to plain (Margherita) and Sicilian, California Pizza Kitchen is the go-to place for exotic pizzas and beyond? they offer many more appetizers, entrees and salads than traditional pizza shops. With menu items like Baja Fish Tacos and Baby Clam Linguini in Lemon Cream sauce, California Pizza Kitchen is the kind of place you could take someone for a date.

Plus, they offer whole-grain crusts (in addition to white), for those looking to add more fiber and whole-foods to their diet. They have a roasted vegetable salad and a plethora of high-protein chicken salads (bbq, Chinese, waldorf, cobb, Moroccan, Caesar, Thai Crunch) and more, really showing their devotion to health-consciousness.

They have lovely desserts- everything from Apple Crisps to Fudge Sundaes. And I love their Italian Sodas- they even have Kiwi Italian Soda- Mango and Strawberry too and sugar-free Raspberry and Peach (the best diet sodas I have ever tasted!). Their frozen lemonades in flavors like Peach and Raspberry are to die for, and they even have Cherry limeade and an assortment of non-alcoholic Coladas. They also have healthy fruit. smoothies.

Options, options, options! California Pizza Kitchen is great because it suits everyone??s palette and mood- not in the mood for pizza but your friend is? Come here.

This is a tough one for me, being a verified New York pizza snob. I??ve never wanted to be in a situation where I was complimenting another state??s pizza, but, credit where credit is due. The pizza at CPK is pretty good, it??s different from NY pizza, but still good nonetheless and if you just can??t be the kind of person to eat pizza from California, the other items on the menu are good as well. The crust is nice and thin, but still fluffy and is tasty. I ordered the Margarita pizza and was surprised at how tasty the cheese and sauce were. The atmosphere is good, the booths are really comfortable, and there are windows everywhere to let in a lot of natural light.

The service was fast, and the server was nice, but had us repeat our orders one more time instead of just reading off what she??d written, not a big deal but still annoying. The food tasted fresh, but the portions are a little small. They??re basically personal pizza sized, which I wasn??t expecting, I left satisfied, but was hungry not long after. So, NY pizza snobs, this one??s for you--give it a try, you??ll probably like it!

Being from NY my pizza standards are rather high so it is a good thing that this place is more than just pizza. These family friendly establishments offer a large selection of salads, sandwiches, pasta dishes and of course pizza! The also have a pretty decent wine selection, nothing fancy but pretty good for a chain. The staff is clearly trained and they always offer assistance with your menu selection. The salads are the most tasty in my opinion and the pizza is just okay. Again, I??m from NY so I might be a bit spoiled in the pizza department. One good thing is that even if you??re in another state you know you??ll get the same thing since this is a chain.

In addition they offer take out and they do a great job in that department. When you call up they greet you by your name. They must have some sort of program where their computer recognizes your phone number and brings up your account. They always remind you of what you ordered last time and often suggest an appetizer or dessert to go with your order. All items are normally ready in about 15-20 minutes which I feel is standard for take out and they are always packed up nicely so that you don??t end up with spaghetti sauce or salad dressing stains on your car upholstery.

Overall good place for dine in or take out.

I wonder how much business this CPK loses because of its sporadic delivery rules. Some days they deliver, some days they don't, and they have a tendency to modify their delivery area on a whim. A word of advice, CPK: you'll make more money if you make your customers happy...

High chairs, crayons, and plenty of pizza options to fit any picky pallet. Gluten free options available. Most locations have changing stations.
