I periodically like to order To Go dinner, and have tried this location over half a dozen times. Unfortunately my experience is although really easy to place order on line, the meal is never ready on time. This week I ordered for 7pm pick up and there was at least 45 mins between when I placed the order and pick up time. I ordered a pizza, appetizer of chicken lettuce wraps and salmon with roasted vegetables and a dessert cake. Whe. I arrived at 7pm, it appeared the salmon had not been cooked, because they said I had to wait on salmon, I did see them running around, it was a good 20 mins later when I received my order. I would not mind if this was the only time it has occurred, but I would say I have found it is never ready on time. However, the Food is always well cooked and delicious so I keep going back for more. I have noticed the restaurant is always busy - so next time I will go 5-10 mins later!

Stopped at this CPK for dinner and found it uncrowded early on a Friday night. Same good food, very good server (Garcia) and a helpful supervisor. I had a coupon on my phone that I wanted to use and that was easy for them to handle.

Three family members went for a weekday lunch at CPK. I noticed pets are allowed at the outdoor seating. We sat inside and ordered several sides for my almost 2-year-old grandson. When the broccoli side dish arrived, which grandson usually eats, it was evident that broccolini or broccoli rab had been substituted for regular broccoli. We were busy with the toddler so we didn't send this dish back but the cooks should know the difference in vegetables or at least apologize if substituting. The little guy tried the veg but didn't want to eat it. However, he did enjoy the dipped bread and sharing the chicken wontons, and his fruit side. My salad and personal pizza lunch combo was tasty and filling, however, the pizza wasn't real warm.

Haven't been to CPK since I lived in Arizona. This time we wanted to try something different other than, pizza. Tonight ordered the halibut although I eat this fish everyday, it was since to try it cooked in a different way. The chicken lettuce wraps were awesome. The restaurant overall was nice and the staff was friendly. Since it was the holidays there was a small band planning Christmas music. Other than the annoying sound of the violin playing, we would come back.

I don't understand the good reviews. I ordered what I believe was one of their signature pizzas... BBQ chicken. What I got was crust that was like a piece of cardboard, smeared with a bit of BBQ sauce and possibly a little chicken but it was hard to find. I was so underwhelmed but didn't say anything because my friend loves the place as was treating me to lunch. I would never go back on my own again. Maybe other dishes are better, but one would think choosing something they are "famous" for would be a good bet. Not so much... Oh, and the not-so-great food has a fairly great price. This place was so underwhelming that I forgot to review it for a couple months...
