Huge menu. If you can't find something on the menu you like there is seriously something wrong with you. Gluten free options, vegetarian options, low calorie options. Excellent drink menu

You can't go wrong. A predictable and enjoyable California Pizza Kitchen dining experience on El Paseo. The shrimp/ zucchini/pasta (light on the pasta and would be fine without) is excellent. The Cobb salad is one of the best anywhere. Unusually friendly servers.

I was craving a "different" kind of salad and found this restaurant to have multiple choices. Service was great, reasonable prices and friendly atmosphere. I was there at a time when it wasn't too crowded so the noise level was OK. It can be noisy at dinner time when it's really busy. Not much to absorb sound.

Travelling with kids stinks, food-wise, when you have to choose places with kids' menus, quick service, and not so fancy that your spilled juice or noisy pre-schooler disturbs other people. This was the best food we had all week, restaurant wise. The only down side was it took a long time to arrive: place was busy on a Sunday evening... More

I can't say enough nice things about our experience. It started with the sweet hostess, funny and friendly. Next our server was so adorable, she had paw print tattoo's on her arm, I shared that we had lost our dog that week and got emotional. She gave me the sweetest hug. Now on to the food. As always, the bread... More

Been here before and we knew it would be good. Sat on the patio at the bar, ordered a couple drinks and the spinach and mushroom flatbread, it was terrific. Wife had the fish tacos, and I had the full size Cobb salad, the half size would have been plenty , it was delicious, the wife said her fish tacos... More
