We visited the Braintree location the past Thursday, 12/1/2016. My wife, a vegetarian of 26 years, ended up eating a piece of bacon due to cross contamination! Totally unacceptable!! We did let our server know and a manager did come by our table to apologize and took the price of the salad off our bill. That however is not the... More

The server was great! the restaurant was picking up as we stood in line to be seated for three people. 5 minutes went by and two people came in and the hostess sat them at a table for four.? Umm why weren't we sat before the two top? Lack of communication between the 2, 3 or 4 hostess. Server greeted... More

On my first visit I had the Hawaiian pizza with the thin crust. Super tasty and the pizza crust was really good. My second visit, I tried the THE ORIGINAL BBQ CHICKEN CHOPPED salad which was huge and super good. My wife enjoys the QUINOA + ARUGULA salad as she is vegetarian. On both visits, we found the service by... More

Why do I keep going back? We love the soup! The split pea is do good but I feel cheated EVERYTIME we get a to go cup. It's considered a ladle size. But the serving size is 1/2 the cup full. They should just purchase smaller cups. I can't stand it. Also, I asked a question about an egg allergy... More

We were at the mall today and wanted soup to go. It was cold and rainy out. We go to CPK all the time. Love their soup. I got 5 cups in all. (The size of a cup of soup is a full ladle for measurement.) When we got home to have our snack what I saw in the cups... More

For a very good non fast food meal at the South Shore Plaza try California Pizza kitchen. I have sat at the bar before and watched how the food is prepared. Everything is fresh and made to order.

Day after Christmas we went for lunch at California Pizza Kitchen.....it was excellent. The pizza was hand stretched dough, which is a huge plus. Ingredients were fresh, for example they actually use fresh mozzarella on the Margherita pizza, some places just use regular shredded mozzarella. The oregano was very fresh and the imported style, which is a nice bonus. The... More

Good variety of food for all friends or family. The pizza was good which is what you'd expect. We ordered the Smores dessert and that was a big disappointment. Was really small and not warm or anything like a Smores. Stay away from that dessert. And a tip for wait staff, even after the bill is paid, maybe clean off... More

Went with co-workers and they could not organize a table for 20 comfortably and would not take reservations. Food was cold, not enough help. Will not go back
