We have eaten here several times. One of the better run ones in the chain. Clean, friendly and the food always seems fresh and hot.

Was very pleased to learn that you can order whole grain piza at California Pizza Kitchen. Ordered it with 1/2 wild mushrooms and 1/2 BBQ chicken. I like thin crust and it was yummy.I started my meal off with their crushed pea and barley soup. It is a real treat if you like Pea soup. Only had to wait 10... More

CPK in Deer Park is much nicer now after the renovation. Food is great and reasonable price. Fast service and healthy food selections.

Stopped by for lunch at noon and waited to be seated several minutes in a relatively empty place. Then had to wait while the surly host used hand sanitizer. The server was much better and took our orders for 5 cheese and tomato pizza and Jumbalaya Fettuccini. The Jubalaya was very good and the pizza was fine, but the crust... More

We had visited California Pizza Kitchen several years ago in Deer Park. Unfortunately it was not as good as it used to be. The whole place needed a revamp. The pizza toppings didn't cover the entire crust -- there was a good 1 1/2" of crust around the edge without any topping at all. The salad was not fresh. Not... More

This is a nice change for something different. Great Mahi Mahi tacos, pizzas are always good but order well done crust can be soggy. Desserts are good. Join their club for coupons.

We've all been here before, and the food is good and the service is good and the restaurant is comfortable. I still wish they'd make a low-sugar option in the dessert menu, and the service is always good. I miss the old salads they used to make but I do enjoy the new mushroom pasta dish (some of those mushrooms... More

Everyone knows that California Pizza Kitchen is a great place for pizza, but I found out they have really good salads. They have a really good variety and the portion sizes are very generous. You can make a meal out of it or split a salad and split a pizza.

A long time hiatus and should have gone sooner. Place with new menu - substantial offerings - plenty of options. Good food with excellent service. Had a snag --- fire alarm came on. Had to go outside and wait. Manager greeted us back at the table. 20% discount ticket. Nice touch. Very professional.

Lets get it straight – I do not like chains, in fact – I loathe them. I won’t eat at most chains – probably 95+%...however, and I am not quite sure what it is, but I make an exception for CPK. What is Californian about it? I am from California and I couldn’t tell you. Is it innovative? Yeah, for... More
