This was my first visit to California Pizza Kitchen and I had an okay time. At 2pm, we thought we would be able to get a table quickly. This was not the case. Oh well, we waited about 15 min which allowed us time to install the CPK app for a free “small plate”. I felt like the service was a little slow here. Our waiter, Travis, was very friendly and patient. After we ordered, we expected to get the complimentary bread soon after. I was starving so I really wanted to eat something quick. However, after waiting for about 15 min, we decided to ask for it. After we did, it came shortly. For our free small plate, we got a shaved mushroom and spinach flatbread. This was the perfect size – four pieces for the four of us. It was quite tasty as well and super cute! We ordered the California club pizza, which is first baked with bacon, chicken, and cheese, and then topped with a salad, basil, and avocado. I found that the basil was too much as they were literally placed almost whole on top. I like basil, though, so it was ok for me, but I can imagine others not feeling the same. I really liked this pizza! We also got a White pizza and added bacon for $1.59. This was also quite good, very cheesy. I found that these pizza crusts got chewy and hard and difficult to eat after it got cold. We also got the fish taco. It only came with 2 tacos, some salsa, and chips. The fish was mahi-mahi and was quite good, obviously good quality fish. The portion was quite small for the price. I love coleslaw though, so this was pretty good for us to share. Overall, food was good and service was good. For a chain restaurant, I would say it met my expectations. I would definitely go again when I'm in the states and they had it somewhere nearby! Cheesecake Factory would be my choice before this place, though. Yay!

I had a lunch duo, which was a 7″ lunch size pizza (shaved mushroom and spinach) with the Mediterranean Salad. The pizza was delicious as always. The salad was ok. I think the dressing it came with wasn't to my liking because it lacked the flavor I had hoped for. Had I known, I would have asked for a substitution on the dressing. It won't affect any future visits because I hold CPK in high regards due to their delicious food and great service. Our server was very good and attentive and even though she was new, she did a great job. I've never been served a pizza I didn't like and CPK is always a place to go for delicious tasting pizza with a wide variety of choices for every tastebud!

California club pizza. Very tasty, except the crust gets hard and chewy when cold. California club pizza. Very tasty, except the crust gets hard and chewy when cold.

My family of six went here last night for a birthday get together. We were seated promptly in a round table. Place was full and staff kept trying to squeeze in more tables so people could eat. I understand a restaurant trying to accommodate everyone so there is a shorter wait but everyone was elbow to elbow and there was no room to walk. Place was very loud and we all felt like we were dinning with the families next to us. Menu was average. Soups, salads, pizza, sandwiches. Overpriced and expensive. Definitely makes your jaw drop. We split 3 pizzas- BBQ chicken, Sicilian and Thai Chicken. The pizza prices and sizes don't add up. They are about medium size but prices were about $14 each. They all tasted decent but tasted the exact same as a frozen pizza. No 'wow' factor. Very salty. All the pizzas were ate but we were all left hungry. We could have went to Buddy's to get more bang for our buck.

I went here on Black Friday and it's in Somerset so I definitely kept that in mind while writing this review. The wait was long but we expected that. I really like that they don't give you a buzzer, they just text you when your table is ready so you don't have to walk around the mall to kill the time with a buzzer. I've been here a couple times and my favorite thing to get is the California Club pizza with goat cheese and whole grain crust. If I ever decide to venture out of that favorite, the menu has ample options (not just pizza) and a lot of health conscious substitutions easily available, which I really appreciate. The restaurant was decently clean and I think it has a good ambiance. The only things I don't like is that people walking by will literally stare you down if you're eating next to the window but I mean the restaurant is in a mall so what are you gonna do. The second is that all the times I've been here the bathroom doors are literally revolting. They're a misted glass and every time all you can see is tons and tons of greasy handprints. Our waiter took awhile to greet us and he never gave us the free bread we're supposed to get or the lemons we asked for our waters. However we did have modifications on our dishes and everything came out like we asked. Like I said, it was Black Friday. I'm sure he was doing the best he could. All in all I like this place and it's a go to when I'm at Somerset because it's not ridiculously expensive like every other place there. I'd give it four stars except my boyfriend's gotten food poisoning from there twice. I have not.
