The place did lack atmosphere and the toilets were in quite a state (busy day?) The food was tasty enough but it was almost fast food and we were in and out within an hour.

CPK is always a reliable place to get good value food, particularly as a change from richer, fine dining venues which are always tempting when you're on vacation! We always get good service and they have a terrific wine list. Happy to recommend.

On a busy New Year's Eve night. California Pizza Kitchen was about the only place not fully booked. The Sicilian and the BBQ chicken pizza was good. The halibut was okay, and the steak was not so good. Any return trips will be for the pizza.

We called in for dinner, the service was very quick, almost too quick, with our meal landing on our table in record time. The meal was typical CPK, tasty and fresh, but it certainly was not a restaurant / bar to have a few drinks and a bite to eat.

Stopped in after a long day for a quick fix expecting usual standard stuff. The food was actually very good, albeit just pizza, service was excellent and dessert was superb. If you're a Brit like me, order the Batter Cake which is our sponge cake!!
