Took my teen daughter to this place for her Birthday. I had never been in one. From the moment I walked thru the door till I left, the staff was spot on, the food was great, the price as good and the service wonderful. Made her evening perfect. The Wait staff was attentive not only to us, but everyone, and... More

This place never disappoints, the food is constantly good and the service is spot on. They have a pretty good selection of food and a constantly changing drink menu. Sure to find something for everyone's liking, even the kids.

Ordered the pasta bolognese, which was a huge dissapointment, as it had little meat in it. Service was slow. In the past, we ordered various pizzas, and rarely ever had a problem with the food quality. It does not pay to order other items off their menu. Key lime pie for dessert was awesome.

Wanted to enjoy this. First folks in the place, orders taken quickly, didn't see server again until food delivered. Then, despite over 70 tables in the place, the staff puts a group of loud people right next to u, spoiling our lunch. Really lazy staff

Good choice of pasta, Mexican, and pizza abound.. The salads are huge! My wife had the harvest soup and salad lunch duo and I went with the thin crust meat pizza. All perfect! This place has been renovated since we were last here and it is light and airy and sits right on the corner for people watching if you... More

The waiter was great! Had to ask for bread. My favorite salad the peach salad they no longer have. We had flat bread pizza instead and it was good.

Fairfax Corner has build a new multi-level parking garage close to California Pizza Kitchen. CPK has added a couple of new high bar tables, and new chairs at the bar. I breezed in for a quick salad at the bar for lunch. A doable 60 minutes from Mason's Fairfax campus if you know the short cuts. Love the new look... More

Being from California, we had to stop for eats at CPK when window shopping at the Fairfax Corner Shopping Center. Although it is pretty similar to other CPK in which we have eaten, the wait staff seemed particularly friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our dinner as we fought off the second day of jet lag.

Two strikes...I won't be back. VERY slow service, and incorrect orders. The location is very busy with difficult parking due to the theaters. I was only there during peak hours. Generally, the CPK food is very good. Maybe it's good here when it's slow.
