This is a very good family restaurant, good value and predictable, reliable food quality. Prices are fair. Portions are good. Their tortilla soup is delicious. Pizzas are very good. A spacious interior

This location of CPK is pretty consistent in their preparation and the quality of their food. There are probably better pizza places in Wellesley (it depends on what you like) but there are some good salads (Waldorf chicken salad), appetizers (love the new buffalo broccoli) and entrees (spaghetti bolognese is ok). If you order from diningin.com, the delivery from CPK... More

As I have often written, a chain restaurant is usually the same and nothing a traveler might not want to miss. W e went last night while visiting our daughter and granddaughters. It is their favorite restaurant. Deservedly so. The service was excellent, provided by Paul. How does he remember everyone's order so well? The soup my daughter had of... More

Well, there was a little bit, a very very little bit of chicken. For $13.00 you can get a better deal at any fast food joint. I did complain to the server, who responded ,well it's not served often, but I'll tell them in the kitchen. My wife asked for a coffee refill, the server took her cup to the... More

The chicken and shrimp lettuce wraps at California Pizza Kitchen are excellent. Ready quickly. A decent amount of shrimp (some places load them with chicken and only give you one or two shrimp - not here). I also like that when you call in they remember you and what you ordered last time.

Set in a strip mall with little competition, it can get a little crowded. Very family friendly, so lots of kids running around. The pizzas are the highlights. And this one executes the formula well. This is a "by the books" corporate restaurant by this stage of its life-cycle. You get what you expect.

My family and I probably eat at CPK once a week. My kids love the food here. The staff is friendly and the meals are consistently good. I love the California Cobb Salad and the new Roasted Garlic Chicken Pizza. I also like the chicken Milanese. My husband gets the "famous" BBQ chicken pizza, but he's become a fan of... More

The food is good, and there is plenty of it - we usually end up taking home a "doggy bag". It is always full of families and can be a little noisy - definitely not a place to go for a couples dinner! It is good value, though, and even though we don't have kids at home anymore we still... More
