We're visiting from Europe and decided to stop in Riverside for lunch. We stumbled upon CPK. The outside of the restaurant doesn't really look welcoming with the sunblocking windows, but the interior is really nice, staff is very friendly and the food is great. We had the lunch combo's, a small size pizza or sandwich and soup or salad for... More

The menu has changed and seems to offer less. Staff is friendly, but doesn't have the same CPK warm and fuzzy feeling. Food was decent, but again not as good as the CPK from yesteryear. Younger staff, more trendy, but lacks substance and that personal flare. Seems as if everyone is just going through the motions. All staff members are... More

My grandaughter wanted to go to California Pizza Kitchen and that is what prompted our visit. If you have people in your family who want pizza and others who don't this may meet your needs. The pizza will be OK and the other food will be OK - Nothing will be that great. I had the cobb salad and honestly... More

Loud the evening I went. Pizza was good, service great, and crowded on a Friday night, but good for them, right? Right across from the movie theater, makes for a fun evening out.

We have been here five or six times in the last five months and it has been great!! Salads are fresh and cold. We have only had the thin crust pizza, but it has always been good!!!

This is a very busy restaurant. Still, a good place to go with a group for a meeting or social gathering. The pizza variety is good. Pizzas are well designed with good quantity or meats and cheeses,

Great range of food... not just Pizza ! We like to sit at the counter and watch the open kitchen prepare the meals. We like to variety of items on the menu and the variety of Beers and wine. Always good service. This particular location is usually not as crowded as the Rancho Cucamonga Victoria Gardens location and that is... More

The service was fast, the waitress was nice. The menu has a lot of items on it (not just pizza). It has soups, sandwiches, desserts, and of course pizza. The restaurant was clean and so were the restrooms.

We've been to CPK when it's been very good and times when it's not been so good. That said, we've learned not to stray from our usual order. Consistently excellent is the Moroccan Chicken Salad which combines cubes of Moroccan-spiced chicken, romaine lettuce, butternut squash, red bell peppers, beets, almonds, avocado, tomatoes, dates and/or dried cranberries, and chopped hard boiled...
