Went on Sunday, not so crowded got seat easily after a wait of 15 minutes(appx). As usual food was very good, it was served steaming hot, & was very tasty & authentic. Staff attending to us was very courteous. Upkeep was very good. Kids accompanying were taken care by the staff very well and were given drawing sheets & pastels... More

Went to the Short Hills Mall recently with my wife and we stopped here for lunch. Quite honestly I thought it was about the worst pizza I ever had. The only reason I gave it 2 stars instead of one is because the waitress was attentive and friendly. Seriously with all the pizza places a stones throw from here, why... More

Casual place at the mall. I have to say no matter what I order the food is always fresh and very good. I have never left not liking my meal! That says it all.

CPK has good salads and their red velvet cake is second to none. I like their cranberry cooler too. It's a good place to visit at the mall.

The food was good and the service was very friendly. The waitstaff are very patient and nice. The view of this restaurant faces a parking lot and they do not serve wine - or any alcohol. You can BYOB but it is so strange to not have a glass of wine with dinner here!

We went for a gluten free pizza, not bad at all. The specility salads are large enough for two, glad that they offer a small as an option. Clean and friendly.

I have been going to this CPK for years. The service is always excellent-and the food is always very good. Had the Waldorf Salad and Mexican pizza on the last visit and it was excellent. The server was very kind and patient with our requests for changes to a few things with our meal. I am never disappointed here.

This is like a regular CPK but with worse service. The menu and food quality is the same as any other CPK. While I was there the servers had plenty of time to talk with each other and laugh loudly, but not enough time to refill drinks and bring checks.

Every other California Pizza Kitchen I have seen has been a fast food place--usually in an airport. This one is a full sit-down restaurant with full service. It was definitely nicer than any of the fast food ones, with a varied menu. I was there a few days before Christmas so it was insanely busy and I had to wait... More
