I hadn't been here in a very long time. The prices are high for what we were served. I had salmon and my husband had a pasta dish. Both dishes we almost "just ok". We won't go back The reason we went was because part of the bill was going to be donated to a cat shelter. Next time I... More

For lunch, an order of flatbread, 1/2 an order of salad, and a bowl of tortilla soup were a nice change and satisfying for my mom and me. Both the spicy fennel sausage poblano flatbread and tortilla soup were very good. The 1/2 order club salad we received was very generous in portion. The taste was so so but then... More

Good food, wait times are not as bad as some other CPK locations and the location inside Hillsdale mall is very convenient!

I went there with my family on an event called 'Breakfast with Santa' and the arrangements were horrible. For the vegetarian people there was no option to eat and staff was quite ignorant on it. The said plain sorry that they cant help with it.

We were in Hillsdale Shopping Centre while passing through SFO. We chose CPK over the Cheesecake Factory as I had recently had a good experience in one in San Francisco. We just soup and salad and everything was really good and great value. I'm a convert.
