Their food is okay and interesting. But I think a lot of what they serve is not pizza. I am a pizza traditionalist. Real pizzas have tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese. They are also sold by the slice. And good pizzas can stand on their own without toppings. When it comes to food I think creativity is overrated. I like high quality food. I don't care if it is unique or original.
The staff here is consistently very friendly and easy going and I've never had any trouble getting a table. Lory, the maître d' here (which is weird to see in a CPK), does an excellent job making sure each guest is well taken care of. The pizza crust is light and fluffy and they don't go overboard with the sauce and cheese.
These guys just ignore orders that have been placed. If it wasn't for Seamless checking up on them, and then calling me, I would have been left hanging. In fact Seamless tried calling them 3 times and they wouldn't even answer the phone. Long story short, Seamless knows how to do business. California Pizza Kitchen doesn't.
