Lots of memories here. Have been coming for decades, since 1992. Good service. Remodeled. Good food. Brought my kid here since infancy and the kid has loved it ever since. Now my kid is in early 20s.

Yesterday my husband and I had lunch here. The service was okay, the waitress was nice and all but I think she talked a little way too much trying to get her tip which is cool and all but don't let the talking take over your work. I ordered the sangria flight and it never got brought to the table. But that's not even the worst part, we ordered the artichoke dip and it was microwaved. I'm not surprised about that bc maybe half the things they served are microwaved. The presentation of the dish is what matters. It had dried dip around the rim and some of it looked gooey bc if how much it got warmed up. If someone ordered it and didn't want it anymore the least you guys could've done was put it in a clean dish.

My first time at one of the California Pizza Kitchen - well spoken but never experienced - in the beautiful town of Pasadena. A little slow to get our table but after that we were very good taken care of by our waitress - who was really professional in her work. She explained the menu for those who needed some help, she got our drinks fast (we were a party of 14) and the food came just in time for an another serving of drinks. The food was generous and very tasteful. Even the split of the bill did the waitress very efficient. Thanks for a memorable evening with great food and drinks

Went in for lunch today. Service was whatever but being a server myself I still gave him +20% on his tip. Reason for this review is, while I definitely appreciate him boxing my food for me table side, I found it completely disgusting that he felt comfortable to just grab the table bread with his bare hands and throw it into my to go box with the rest of my food. 1. He had just taken payment on another table/touched money, and 2. I don't know when the last time was that you washed your hands was. Come on man, all you had to do was slide the bread into the box by just tilting the plate... Honestly made me really grossed out... thank you for that Robert. Pay attention to your servsafe more next time #Pathogens

Very nice mid-scale chain serving pizza, pastas, salads, and cocktails. Parking is easy but you need to pay. They validate parking here. Servers and waiters are always friendly and courteous. A well managed restauant.

It was posted in the parking garage California pizza validate parking up to 90 minutes. We had issues looking for parking. We nevered entered California pizza. We drove off before the 15 free time limit. I was ashamed there was plenty parking for tenants and for green cars. Looking for a parking and waiting for a a order at 630pm would have taken more than 90 minutes.

I like cpk. My wife and I come here regularly, split a salad, an entree and dessert --just the right amount of food tasting food. If we're feeling lazy, ordering pizza is an easy choice, we can count on the pizza to be consistently good. The pastas are also good.

Good place for a late lunch. Many choices and great service. Kids have multiple options.

CPK has got to be my go to spot for lunch! It's literally a block away from my job so when the cafeteria food isn't looking too shabby, 9/10 times I end up here. The lunch duos are usually what I get, you can never go wrong with a tasty pizza and salad or soup. Today I decided to get the best salad on the menu, the original bbq chicken salad, the half portion is also big enough to fill you up. Now the star of the show for me is the buffalo cauliflower! I have tried this at almost every place that offers them, and CPK definitely makes the best! Great service, great food and great prices!

Split pea soup and roasted veggie salad are good vegan options. The service is great, but the environment is a little hectic. It's crowded & has lots of kids. Good family place, less of a romantic dinner.

Flawless for pizza, the crust is thin, crispy, and crunchy. I ordered the original flavour (honey BBQ with chicken). A short word for describing it is delicious, however, after a few chews, it has a taste for dessert. I am not sure whether this is a right taste for pizza.

Can't for wrong with CPK! They were located right next door to my hotel and made a perfect to-go meal for me to enjoy in my room.

Nicole was such a fun and attentive server!!! Although it's been a while since I've had a sit down meal in a CPK, i was thoroughly impressed with the friendliness of the staff and the quality of service at this establishment!! Kudos to the manager. Ive been ordering pizza for our office from CPK for a while now, and I had accumulated some amount of rewards, enough to cover a dinner, and they were about to expire so we planned a weekday dinner for CPK. We came here after a swim at 24hr fitness a couple blocks away. We weren't terribly hungry so we ordered the buffalo cauliflower and elote small plates and a sausage and mushroom pizza. The manager brought over a taster of the white corn guacamole, which was delicious and such a nice gesture!! Also will be ordering next time I come in, so great strategy. The food was flavorful and definitely met expectations. The couple extra dollar on the bill that weren't covered by rewards got me to another reward in the app lol! Means I'll be coming back again soon.

Great location. Easy parking underground. They validate. Service was good. Menu standard fare. No need for reservations. Will certainly go back.

Never order from this restaurant using a delivery service . No matter how much you plead or how many times you write it down in the order , you can forget about getting any salad dressing with any salad . This is not a one time mistake . I have given them a number of chances and I'm done with them . The Thai crunch salad came with no dressing at all , and it was horrible . I used Door dash and will be reviewing them next . I have no idea why a restaurant thinks they will get good reviews when they deliberately want to cause an unpleasant meal . Please never order from this restaurant In Pasadena .

Stopped by here on a rainy day and got their Dakota smashed pea and barley soup. It was so comforting and surprisingly rich. I highly highly recommend this soup! I got the cup size and it was bigger than I expected. See picture attached.

I think we surprised the place with 27 adults and kids from our basketball team on a Sunday night 3-day weekend. It took awhile to get everything but the wait staff was very courteous and got all of the orders pretty close to right and allowed separate checks by family. They had ample room in a back room for all of us and were ready to be seated at the get-go. They did ok!

Always a pleasure to here. Our waitress Caley, I think that's her name, is always wonderful. Ordered the short ribs with mac n cheese and it was so yummy. Asked Caley if we could make the margarita fettuccine creamier and spicier and she accommodated. Always friendly. Love,love coming here

I am giving this a 2 star because the manager, attemped to resolve the issues by just refunding the take out dinner order, though was made to feel like I was crazy. My favorite thing from here is the formally on the menu, tri color pizza salad with chicken. Was assured that the chicken was in with the salad. Should have been suspicious because they never do that. Needless to say, get home and there is no chicken. While looking for the chicken through the greens, I noticed the greens were very old and slimy. Manager check the greens at the Pasadena restaurant and told me they were fine. I have attached a picture of ok for the manager. Don't think I will be back here again.

I can't believe this is my first visit to this CPK. We went on Friday 01/18/19 with a party of four. The space is nice, but hectic. I definitely feel that there could be a better use of space. The check-in area felt very hectic and not enough room for people to gather, with the constant flow of servers and hosts moving about, delivery people coming in and out, etc. However, the wait was only about 20 minutes, which was pretty good for a Friday night. With that said, the rest of the visit was lovely. Two of us at the table, including myself, shared a Full BBQ Chicken Salad. The salad was so large and so delicious. Truly a gem. We also shared a Chipotle Chicken Pizza, which again was cooked perfectly, with generous toppings, and a nice spicy flavor to it. I was very impressed with the food. The prices were on-par with the large portions received. I would definitely return again to this CPK.

Good food, and a decent atmosphere. I'm not big on chain restaurants but the food quality if good here. Bonus points for the server - she worked with us to figure out a pasta free option with the bolagnese and it was excellent!

The kids love this place. Download the pizza dough app for great benefits and rewards. Its a real nice place for the kids to runaround if you are waiting for a table or to run after eating if the weather permits. Parking garage has plenty of spots especially adjacent to Westin hotel. I usually go towards the kung pao spaghetti and if I want pizza I lean towards the Thai pizza.

It’s great to show up to an excellent salad restaurant and find they have new ideas in salads on the menu. I hope the salads keep coming. Their pricing could be a little better, however the quality and environment is excellent.

This place was great! The atmosphere, food, environment, customer service and everything else was excellent. The host was very involved with our party, our waitress was very attentive to us throughout our experience. The food was delicious, I ordered chicken piccata, it was on point, the chicken and pasta was cooked to perfection. The rest of the party had salads and pizza, they were all happy. The price was a little high for the portions.

But unbearably crowded and noisy early on Saturday night, due to the UCLA usc game. I was amazed at the variety on the dinner menu. I had the salmon and corn spinach succotash. It was damn good!

We took a group of 35 adults on Sunday about 2 pm. The staff had prepared the area well for us and servers were preassigned to tables. Wait staff was pleasant and efficient. Our thin-crust pizzas were too large for just one person. All were delicious as was my smashed pea and barley soup. The asparagus and arugula salad was nicely seasoned and presented on a long rectangular platter so that it was easy to share with the person opposite me at the table. People at other tables were equally satisfied with their food and servers. We would go again!!!

As dependable as any other CPK. And this one has the upshot of being a plush quasi-cathedral design, plus it is across the street from the splendid City Hall of Pasadena. Reasons for craving a CPK has changed over the years. My family even had this exchange this time, with my sibling saying, "I don't feel like pizza today because we had it last night somewhere else," with myself responding, "What's nice about CPK is we can just have pastas and chop salads." On a light stomach, I totally dig the Zucchini Shrimp Pasta these days -- a caress on your tongue and tooth munch on shrimp dish. If you love CPK more than I do, than this location is a must visit and there's definite upside here. If I'm hedging my grade somewhat, it's because back in the heydey the sauces on pizza were more lavish (Thai Chicken Pizza, anyone?) and the doughs fluffier. But with a revolving menu, the CPK corporation keeps me coming back time and time again. #wellfed
