We always come here for dinner and we always have a bad experience with the server, however last Sunday, our waiter Malcom has changed around my expectations. My family was impressed by his excellent service. He was super nice, helpful and very friendly. Thank you for the great service Malcom, keep up the good job. More...
Went to this location many times and the service is on point. I felt the need for this review because last night was a lil ladies night and one of our drinks and a salad we ordered tasted strange so at the end the waitress she said aww did you want to finish your drink my friend didn't say it tasted strange so I did and I told her the salad too. So she went got the manager and he was apologetic and he took it off our bill. My friends were embarrassed but I said hey it's better for them to know so maybe they can adjust something. And we aren't mad we are just saying those items didn't taste right. Everything else we ordered was fine. And we will go back cause one the atmosphere and workers are awesome as always... More...
Went to cpk for my wife's bday dinner tonight. We go here often, because she loves their thin crust pizzas. Service is normally fine. But tonight I had to give a yelp out for our server, Amber, who absolutely gave us the best service we've ever had at any cpk. We were seated in the bar area, which I normally don't like, but it was still early so it wasn't busy yet. Amber was cheerful and attentive. She happily took our orders, made recommendations, cheered on our choices, served us like we were friends! When she asked if we were up for dessert, I mentioned that it was my wife's bday and she quickly said I've got something for you then! She checked our reward app and saw that we had a free bday entree, instead of just dessert. And brought out some of the crew to sing happy bday with a cute little ice cream sundae! She truly made our visit great! She gave us a great experience. I will happily sit at the bar if she's there next time! Thank you!! More...

Great food and the waiter always gave us his attention!!
Great place to go with family and friends!Our children selected CPK for our Friday family dinner. Lucky for us we were served by Katreena. She was very engaging, offered drink and food suggestions and was attentive to our needs. Food was delivered in a timely manner and was consistent as usual. The manager checked on our table which made us feel like we mattered. We will definitely be back to this Kapolei CPK location soon! Thank you for the awesome experience. More...
Customer Service on the takeout was very good , I understand it took awhile for my order to be done but I understand that part cause I’m a server and sales in a restaurant myself. ! Good Job !
My husband and I ALWAYS sit at the bar. Veeka, Amber and now Kristine are the best. Even though the kitchen can be slow with appetizers, they always make sure we are up to date. Very friendly, remember our drink choice, and always speedy with service. It will be sad when Veeka leaves, but we know Amber and Kristine will kill it. Food is waaaayyyy better than Cheesecake More...
Good food, quality on par with the rest of the brand. Nice location, close to the movie theatre with plenty of parking nearby.
Service,as always, was great. Our waiter, Josh, was friendly. I'd recommend going here for a special occasion or a casual dinner out

My favorites are Cobb salad with shrimp, mushroom pizza and butter cake ala mode. So yummy!!

Thai Salad so tasty Thai pizza so tasty too!

Not bad my 1st Time coming here. I Loved it! Especially the Butter Cake is the Best ever!
on 7/6/19 my maui family & friends came down to visit, we had dinner over here, the service to me was great, we had an big party/number of people in our group, also our server was great also forgot her name though, but she told us the specials and also checked on us every so often, the food was great also, , they also surprised my niece for her bday making her embarrased by singing happy birthday, thats a good/great job to me, also an chef/cook was in an black chef coat came out to give my nephew and niece some gold fish crackers while i was holding one of them, to me that is going out of thier way to make this dinner more enjoyable. we will definite come back to this cpk. Also this was our very first time at this location. This is great and excellent customer service. Keep up the great job. More...
Spent the day with my daughter and ended up @ CPK Kapolei for lunch. The food was amazing as usual and our waitress was attentive and friendly.
Best meal I have had since we got to the Island. I ordered the JAMBALAYA LINGUINI FINI and my husband had the Pepperoni pizza. It was so good, I really recommend this place. More...
Yes, I admit, I love their Buttercake. Who doesn't?That's what ALWAYS save some room for because I HAVE TO eat dinner before and be a good example to my kids. But at the same time, it's like we've been starving everytime the Buttercake comes out and everyone just devours it like there's no tomorrow!So we went to CPK today and got a new server by the name of Jasmin. She was amazing. Why? Because she could put up with my brother and husband's craziness. Props to her. She did awesome for being there only a few says. Mind you, she did forget an order, but put it right in when she realized it. Totally ok because she was what a server should be and more. The Manager, David, came out to apologize and explain what happened and said they're working on it and it will come out shortly, which it did.Oh! You have got to try their Mexican Street Corn. Another server, Chrissy, came to check on us as well and was very nice too. It really makes a difference.All in all, we all left content and happy. More...
Good parking, quick service, and we got the best server...JESSIE! And they had a pizza special deal and we scored 2 pizzas! Life just got better...
7/17/19We were greeted by our server Jasmin (she was a trainee) who made an excellent first impression on us. Very upbeat and personable. It was my sister's Birthday and they certainly made it one to remember. Shout out to Malcom our cheese guy, Chrissy (Jasmin's trainer) and David the manager. Thank you for the awesome service. The food was top notch especially my favorite Mexican Street Corn. The butter cake was pure evil but oh soooooo good. My sister got a complimentary Birthday sundae and was serenaded by some of the crew. Mahalo!!! More...
My favorite place to eat. Great service, great food. Be prepared to wait on the weekend. Lots of choices, from local flare to pizza. Flatbread pizza is wonderful, it goes perfectly with a wedge salad. A must try is strawberry shortcake when it's in season along with pumpkin cheesecake when in season. Numerous offerings from the bar. For a refreshing pick me up go for the mango tea! The decor will keep you looking from ceiling to floor. More...
This location is always busy. Their customer service is really good but try and get a seat inside because at night there gnats and termites just flying everywhere. My favorite things to eat at CPK are:Italian ChoppedMushroom Alfredo Fettuccine Butter Cake More...
Stopped by for lunch today. Haven't been to this restaurant since it first opened and we're working out opening "bugs". I was pleasantly surprised that the service and overall dining experience has greatly improved since my last visit. Our server today was Dani and she was not only genuinely friendly but very helpful as well. She explained seasonal menu items along with their new bake and take promotion. With purchase of an entree, diner may purchase a bake and take pizza for just $10. What a great idea. Dani was attentive and made sure our glasses were always full and checked on us throughout our meal. Today we ordered the chicken dumplings which is always my go to cause of it's fresh flavor. The spinach artichoke dip which is always spot on. For entrees, I got the garlic fettuccini with chicken and mushrooms and the fish tacos. The fettuccine noodles were perfectly cooked and the garlic flavor was delicious. I got to try the fish tacos as well. Fresh ingredients and flavor but could use more fish. After all, it is called "fish" tacos. Butter cake aka mode to end our lunch. The butter cake is my all time favorite dessert there. It's always warm, moist and delicious. I think I'll definitely be back to this location in the f More...
Good ,fast service.Likes the environment
George H. Alba
Isabel and I enjoyed the experience at the Aiea CPK. Great food, great atmosphere. Our server Nora was the best. Will gladly return. My brocollini and pasta salad was delicious. More...
Stopped in for father's day dinner and it was very good. We had good service, good food, and the kids loved it!
Awesome food n service! We almost always sit at the bar area....better interaction with the workers and lots to see!
We ordered a steak salad and three pizzas. The Tostada, Thai, and Jamaican Jerk pizzas were delicious. Our server asked us if we wanted to have our salad as a appetizer. It came out later than expected which was not problem to us. He then came back with the manager and apologized. The manager was very kind and took good care of us throughout the night. It made us feel very welcomed there. Wonderful customer service! More...
Great food and service today! I recommend the avocado rolls for the appetizer. The 12 oz Ribeye with fingering potatoes is also delicious. Finally, the Strawberry Shortcake completed our dining experience. So yummy! We never had to ask twice for our dishes and drinks. Our server took excellent care of us. We will be back! More...
Love seating at the bar. Get drinks quick and food is always excellent. Love all the bartenders
Food and service is good but too expensive for a casual place. Our bill came out well over $100 for 2 people. You could dine at a much nicer place for the same price.
Usually when we come here we experience a long wait time, the servers are running around, super busy yet our food still takes a long time, how ever during my last visit I was served by a new server "Katreena". Based on her overall performance I was shocked when she mentioned she was new. She was such a sweetheart, knowledgeable about the menu and diligent, made us feel like family! Although it was crazy busy, she did an excellent job at happily serving us, bringing our drinks and food in a timely manner! During our next visit, my husband and I hope to have her as our server again! Thank you Katreena! More...
Great food and great service
This is one of the newer California Pizza Kitchen restaurants that have opened on the West Side. Located conveniently at Ka Makana Alii, it is a great place for date night or family dinner.The location is pretty busy, but my fiancé and I are always seated and served our food in great time.Interior wise, it is a bit different from most CPK that I have visited. It gives more of a modern feel. The bar is really big compared to other CPK. The high ceilings, and spacious booths make it great for people with big parties.They even have seating area outside. On our most recent visit, we were seated outside. We didn't mind, except the sun began to set so it was a little bit too bright, and the sun was in our eyes. Other than that, we enjoyed.The service on that particular night was FANTASTIC. We were actually eating the night before a big race that we had to run, so we were carboloading. The server was awesome. He kept checking on us to make sure we were comfortable. He brought the food in a super quick manner. Definitely recommend! More...
Waldorf salad was excellent. Chicken Picatta, chicken tender, sauce tasty, however, pasta somewhat undercooked. Pasta was chewy. Service was great.
As much as I love cpk food I love the staff!! It was a busy night but our service was excellent. 10 out of 10 We waited roughly 5 mins for a table. Got seated an immediate asked/received our drinks. Taylor, the manager on shift was was extremely friendly and checked up on us throughout our dinner. I've never been to a restaurant where the manager actually comes up to check on you so that was really refreshing. My wife really like her and she set the bar high, we will definitely be coming back!! Thanks again More...
We love CPK and visit it frequently. Service can be hit or miss but it was on point on this visit. This time we came specifically for dessert. The butter cake to be exact. If you have never tried this dessert here, you don't know what you are missing! My boyfriend calls it life changing lol! He can be a bit dramatic. I would say that it tastes like warm heaven in your mouth and then you follow that with some vanilla ice cream. Yummmmmm!! Yeah, I guess I can be dramatic too! Highly recommend this, you won't be sorry!! More...
Food always great! Amber made the best tropical mule AND....she met us outside with my phone, that I left behind
CPK is always on the short list of places to go to eat ...The staff is friendly and the food is ONO Aloha Gerry
Really good. Staff is friendly. Good was great, but also on the pricy side. Some of the entrees (like a full salad) you can share.
Come here multiple times both with large groups and just by myself. When I'm eating alone, there's always open seating at the bar and the bartenders are super attentive, the food comes out fast and it's really consistent. When I've been here in big groups, they don't do reservations - but you can call to give them a heads up, even if they don't outright hold the table for you. My groups are usually when my staff and I go out for a work dinner and we've got 20-30 people. The staff here has always been super accommodating and attentive. I was really impressed. More...
The nonprofit Never Quit Dreaming had a Pizza with a Purpose fundraiser today and I wanted to support! So I placed a takeout order. If the person who took my phone order was nice I would have given my review 5 stars. When I picked up my food there was a separate takeout counter which is very convenient. The employee behind the counter was very nice and efficient. When she repeated my order I mentioned I had asked for extra corn in my salad. She informed me it wasn't on the order but would ask to have it added. The woman in the kitchen suggested to put it on the side since my salad was already prepared. The woman in the kitchen brought it out and was also very nice, even apologized that they didn't get the order right. Not their fault at all. Now the lack of the 5th star is due to the woman who took my order over the phone. She was rude, unfriendly and her tone was just a bit too sassy for my liking. I think I may have asked her too many questions. Oh well. If it wasn't for her I would have given this experience 5 stars just based on the interaction I had with the restaurant staff. Food was fresh and still hot when I picked it up. And like I said earlier, the takeout counter is very convenient. More...
Good food. Good prices. ABSOLUTELY love the butter cake dessert. Unfortunately because I'm on a diet I didn't get it but it's my MUST HAVE FIRST!! Other than that I love the BBQ Chicken salad with avocado! More...
Nice big restaurant with bigger bar than Ala Moana. Don't expect romantic dinner though. High ceilings aren't insulated and sound echoes. Screaming babies and pizza oven timers disturb the ambiance bigtime. Service and food excellent though. My husband had rib eye which was perfect and tasty. I had cauliflower crust pizza. Got in asap at 6pm Friday night no wait. More...
Princess Pablo Haverly
Amazing customer service! Best Wait Staff in the mall.
I can't disagree with the previous reviews however we gave this CPK another shot and they pulled through with great food and excellent service. Dale is awesome. The manager was checking on customers. The was was well prepared and quick. I think the managers are reading reviews because the experience was very good. I would recommend going before the rush if you can. It makes a difference In conclusion, I would recommend this CPK as long as it continues to operate like they did today. More...
I came here recently to have lunch with my mom. We arrived before noon and it wasn't busy. As soon as we sat down, the GM came to our table and introduced himself and said our waitress will be here shortly. Our waitress Faith greeted us with a smile and always checked up on us. I ordered the thai crunch salad and my mom had the shrimp zucchini pasta. The food was good, but I gave it 4 stars because of the price. Both of our dish cost almost $18! I think the price of the pasta is expensive for the amount that was given. More...
Came here for lunch with my parents since I was visiting. Nice, clean atmosphere with a really good server and nice manager. Got the Thai crunch salad which I love and the jambalaya pasta, both great! Glad to have a CPK on our side of the island! More...
Every plate we ordered was good, but our waiter Justin was the best very friendly, attentive, glasses was never empty, everything came out in a timely manner and he wasn't trying to rush us out when we were done eating. I was honestly surprised because our service in other establishments lately has been either soso or very disappointing. More...
foods are elegantly served. drinks taste awesome.
Food was fantastic and came out fast!!! The dumpling appetizer was so fresh!!! I loved the mix on the chicken flatbread with Brie cheese and arugula on top.
I've been to the one in Mililani several times and it was decent. The atmosphere is nice and food prices were ok. Servers were ok. Cheers
Cpk is my favorite restaurant! Loved my experience, as always. I'm used to going to cpk ala moana and pearlridge but I'm very satisfied there is one in kapolei because it's closer to home! Will be coming here every week! Lol. I order take out and I dine in and both experiences are never short from perfect. Great hosts and hostesses and greater food! More...
Updated review for our recent visit at the bar with Amber. She brings true professionalism to her bartending and is personable and welcoming. She equipped the wine chiller properly (with ice AND WATER), shined our wine glasses, and took our relatively complex order without notes including remembering my check in number. She was very speedy to get us our wine and water. We watched her make other drinks and she takes extra steps to chill glasses even for drinks going to the restaurant.We always appreciate Kawika's hospitality and he made the perfect collaborator behind the bar. We appreciate him remembering us and his attentiveness.Surprising we haven't met Amber before, though so glad we did.Food was tasty as usual. California veggie pizza on cauliflower crust without the infringement of eggplant or goat cheese. We also got the Kung Pao spaghetti, which is always the bomb. More...
Finally visited this location at Ka Makana Alii Mall and like most locations there is a wait. We went for a friend's bday lunch just the girls and waited 30 mins bcuz we didnt think we needed reservations for 4 people. Signed in walked the mall and they texted 30 mins later. If you have a larger group I'd recommend reservations. Let's just say our server, I 4get her name (the tiny pregnant girl :)), was awesome.As for the food I ordered the spicy buffalo cauliflower and oh boy it was spicy way too spicy for any of us at our table ended up scraping off the batter and sauce just to eat the cauliflower. We also had the spinach artichoke dip as an appetizer that as always was good.They now have cauliflower pizza crust so I had to get that crust with the roasted artichoke, spinach and chicken pizza. Loved it, crispy thin crust.On of our friends had the fettuccini w mushrooms and said it was dry with no sauce but our other friends shrimp fettuccine was total opposite drowning in sauce lol.Bar seating. Indoor and outdoor seating. Good atmosphere.Its across of Cheese Cake Factory.Hopefully our next visit we'll have room for dessert. Glad we have a CPK on the westside so no need drive all the way to Pearlridge to eat. More...
Always the best service, great food! We highly recommend the Mexican street corn!!!
We had a great dinner tonight at CPK! Yummy Barbecue Pizza with Thai Salad, our favorite! Also, Josh was a very attentive server.
Violet Dela Cruz
Great Food and Friendly Waiters.
Love eating here . Convenient location plenty of parking. The rewards program is a nice perk ! 5.00 off an order or a free appetizers
We had dinner yesterday and was greeted by the waitress Caitlin who made you feel very welcome and then Assistant General Manager Janai came by to welcome us and she brought us some bread with butter omg that butter was delicious. She made you feel very welcome and she also works very hard. We saw her not only going to tables to greet people but she would bring peoples food. Many times assistant managers or managers don't work hard like we saw how do. We were very pleased with our food too. More...
Great place to eat. It is always busy but not overcrowded so you feel comfortable and not rushed. Great place to eat before watching a movie or shopping at KMA Mall.
Juliana Tabalan Arreola
Service is excellent - food delicious - drink is awesome - best pizza - bread real yummy
Wow!! Felt like we had to wait an entire two days for our order. Lol. The person taking our order said the wait time was 30 minutes, but we seriously, no exaggeration, waited for a little over an hour. We timed it so we could walk in/out. But we ended up sitting in the parking lot for over 30 minutes. Thank God for Netflix! Haha. The food of course was ono! Our faves are the chicken lettuce cups, shrimp kung pao, and mushroom strozapretti. More...
I came here one when the first opened had had the worst experience ever...two years later we decide to give it another try. We got there right when they open so we didn't have to wait at all and went straight to our table. Service was much better. don't remember what our servers name was but she was awesome....guess we won't be avoiding this location anymore. More...
Love the food especially the Thai chicken salad. The service is always great no matter which location I eat at... has become a favorite of mine.
CPK is always a solid choice. You know what you're going to get.Today our waitress, Abril, was top notch. She was very personable and attentive. She answered all of our questions perfectly to help us with our order. Even though she had a large area she was covering, she still made time to check in with us frequently. She was wicked quick bringing out our appetizers and entrees. The bread was still streaming hot when it was brought to our table. One of the managers, Janai, also checked on our meals and service. I will be back. Soon. But only if I'm in Abril's section. More...
Seated right away. The ambiance is great. It's clean inside, even in the bathroom. The layout of the tables are convenient and gives one privacy at one's table. Our server was Justin. He was very kind, informative, and on top of everything. Though I could see that he was very busy with a ton of tables, we wanted for nothing. If something was missing or if we needed something he rectified it right away. The food was so tasty. CPK never fails to deliver on that front. More...
This is my second review for cpk kapolei. This time we visited on Monday around 3pm. It wasn't busy but seemed like only 1server was working, little after we ordered food, 3 families checked in, it got little busy, but bartender, assistant manager, some staff from kitchen came to help right away, everything was smooth. It was very teamwork!! I tried the califlower crust vegi pizza, was super good!! I didn't expect too good for all vegi pizza, but it was crunchy, vegi was so fresh, was awesome!! Thank u cpk to make my meal heavenly and pleasantly Everytime:) More...
Walked in on a Friday at 11am and was surprised to find no wait. Our server Melinda was awesome! She promptly and warmly greeted us while taking our drink orders. She was fast and friendly but also efficient and aware whenever we needed her. My family and friends come to CPK a lot and other than the lack of wait to be seated, this experience sums up most of our experiences there. Friendly, professional service, and solid food that always fills us up.TIP: sign up for the rewards program. We did and we got $5 off this visit!The decor is nice but the minimalist design doesn't do much to soften any noise. The noise level is a bit loud and is sometimes annoying when you're trying to have conversation. Other than that, ewa, pearl ridge, ala Moana, CPK is always a reliable spot to grab some good drinks, solid food and good vibes. More...
Friendly service! Ono food and I’ll be back...
Great food great pizza great appetizers great drinks can't wait to try the dessert I highly highly recommend this place is all of those who want to try a variation in Hawaiian food
Just received a call from Janai Simpson, and I wanted to express that I appreciate her as assistant general manager taking her time to ensure my feedback was heard and to show sincerity towards the situation. She reached out to me today after leaving this review from New Year's Day. A manager like this really reflects on a business and I'm glad she is on board as a CPK staff member. Thank you for taking time to acknowledge the situation.We also ended up dining in tonight after speaking with Janai. She was genuine on the phone call, but she's even more full of energy and spunk in person. Really glad she's assistant general manager here, because she carries a positive attitude for customers and workers. So THANK YOU Janai for taking care of my family and recreating the experience for us here at CPK. And big thank you to Derek for being our server tonight and ensuring a smile on our faces and overall being genuine. Keep up the positivity, we'll be back! More...
Still good. Great getaway for lunch. Always good to come and get a drink or two. Love sitting at the bar, you can order from the menu and have the drinks keep on coming. This is probably my favorite location on the island. Everyone else seems way too busy. I like the more relaxed atmosphere here. They always seem to make it right if they get something wrong on your order. And their pleasant about it. Going to keep on coming here for lunch, take out, cocktails, with coworkers or the Pham. They always seem to make it right if they get something wrong on your order. And their pleasant about it. Going to keep on coming here for lunch, takeout, cocktails, with coworkers or the Fam. More...
It was all good... would have liked a little bigger adult beverage...haha..
1. Service: Was outstanding, waitress and all staff were very polite and very helpful. 2. Food: Delicious! We ordered the chicken tequila fettuccine and the garlic cream fettuccine, dishes were full of flavor, appeasing to the taste buds and filling. We would order the meals again.3. This is not the first time we went to California Pizza, it was the first time to this location. I highly recommend this location and their food. Don't waste your time with the Cheesecake Factory across the street, this place has pasta if that is what your are looking for, it has better service and the food quality is above the Cheesecake factory's food.4. Kids menu has plenty of variety, allowed the picky eater to find what he/she wants. More...
Wonderful service. Our waitress was great something went wrong with our appetizer, but our waitress was up front about what went wrong and quickly made things right. Then the manager came and she greeted us and offered us free dessert for our troubles. They both were really prompt to make sure we were taken care of. What had potential to be a bad experience was quickly turned into a great one! The staff work really well with one another to put the customers needs first ! More...
We had a little bit of a slow experience but it was all saved by Janai Simpson. She was a true professional and ensured our experience was one that we'd return too. If I were the owner or corporate office I would definitely look at her as someone who needs to be promoted to a larger leadership position. More...
Our server Christine gave us great service which made up for the food coming out slow. She made sure our table was taken care of even as she took charge of the food line and then hopped over to help the chefs. Great worker and server! Definitely requesting her for our next visit. More...

We had a party of 9 and were seated quickly; waiter was awesome! Love the food and service! We were there for a bday occasion and glad we chose CPK! COK Kapolei was a great experience, clean and quick! This was my first time at this location and I’m visiting as well, good impression! More...

Wait help has a long way to go. They’re not we’ll train, keep forgetting to provide utensils and plates before the food arrives.
LOCATION: This CPK is located at the new Ka Makana Alii Mall. Directly next to Limon Rotisserie. Across small street from Cheesecake Factory. Near Olino Theaters. CHECK IN: Luckily if there is a wait, they take your phone number and text you when your table is available, so that way in case you want to shop while you wait, you are not obligated to stay at CPK, you can walk freely around the call center. PARKING: Big open mall lot stalls, this place stays pretty packed but they have a lot of options. STAFF: Omg Glenn was our waiter and he was an absolute rockstar!! He constantly checked on us, ensured our drinks were always refreshed, made sure we always had everything we needed, that everything tasted to our liking!! Awesome employees like Glenn should be celebrated he surpasses his normal call of duty and goes above and beyond to provide true aloha spirit for some talkative girls having a few drinks after Christmas shopping!! He must have refilled our waters at least 6 times, that's just unheard of on a busy packed night. We always got our food really quickly, appetizers, meals, desserts. He always double check to make sure everything tasted fine, drinks were nice and strong and we had enough packages to take home leftover goodies as well. FOOD: Soooo yummy, everything we ate, was hot, fresh and deeeelicious! I can see why they always have a pretty full house here!!! Definitely will return for more drinks!! More...
Ono foods to offer even beyond pizza only.
Glenn was my server, and he was most definitely on his game this afternoon.
Had a long day at work and want to go somewhere to chill and have a beer? Well welcome to this place, it has a very open feel with great music. It's a great place for families as well. The bar is self seating and has a good amount of places to sit. Amber was the bartender and she is very nice. She was very welcoming and ready to answer any questions. This was my first time getting the white corn and avocados with chips, what an interesting combination but great nonetheless. I like California Pizza Kitchen a lot and this was my first time eating at this location. I can't find anything bad to say about this place. The outside seating is between the buildings so that you are not affected by this wind and the place is very well lit. I really like the ambiance. More...
We've been here about 3 times and after our past visit with our Server Ray Dale, I knew I MUST finally review this place! Mr. Ray Dale (your name on our receipt lol) you were THE best CPK server we have ever had across all CPK restaurants. You are prompt, organized, great personality, and fast. Upon being seated at our table, he was on it with drinks and getting our appetizers and my son's meal in asap. Recieved everything within 10-15 minutes of ordering from appetizers to our main entrees. Thank you for making a lunch after a quick Santa photo session at Ka Makana Awesome!Continuing the review, this CPK is located near the main crosswalk between the mall and Cheesecake factory. Lots of parking as its located at the mall and many activities such as shopping and more to do before and/or after your stay at CPK. This location feels more roomy and airy compared to the other locations. Not sure if it's because it's the newest location or the atmosphere but I loved the feeling of the space.Service here was always excellent. Their food is always delicious as well. Some recommendations that I have and that we always get is the BBQ Chicken Pizza, BBQ chicken Salad, Spinach Artichoke dip, fettuccine alfreado with any add ins, and the salmon plank. Everytime we come to CPK we always get atleast 2 of those items. So obviously the name is California Pizza Kitchen, their other non pizza items are bomb as well! Just dont except to have white rice with any of your dishes if you're a local wanting rice. Had a variety of cocktails and drinks as well. Tried almost everything they've had to offer so far and never had a disappointment with any.Will always be coming back. They also have a CPK rewards program. Be sure to enroll with that to start earning rewards with every visit. More...
We have recently been enjoying eating here (mostly due to our love for their spiked cucumber drink). They offer a pretty nice selection of food options to include some nicely presented pizzas. We have teied their hawaiian pizza and the best part is that they use fresh pineapple which makes a world of a difference. Their veggie pizza also looks so fresh as it was topped with mushrooms,broccolini, and other veggies. While you are at it,give their cauliflower crust a try! It does not disappoint. Kudos to their bartenders that make the spiked cucumber. This drink is just awesome. Not only is it refreshing but it is one that doesnt taste syruppy and you can probably find yourself wanting a whole pitcher. This restaurant has a nice ambiance and music,their food looks and tastes fresh. You can call ahead an hr before you go so that youdo not have such a long wait to be seated. The only thing I do not like is that service is hit or miss. Sometimes hoestesses or anyone at the podium do not even acknowledge you there or they can ve super friendly. It is hit or miss. It is also a bit loud so sometimes your order might not come out as you requested. More...
Although serivce is slow, there is a new manager and she is truly working on making the quality of service better and working really hard to lead by example.
11-11-2018 Veteran's DayOur bartender Veeka is the greatest of all time! He's very attentive and friendly even with a full bar on a busy night. He'll ask you what you need and make recommendations if you're unsure what you want. Also, the kitchen staff got our order wrong. Janai, the greatest mgr of all time, was very sweet and provided us an appetizer on the house and gave us fresh/warm bread while they fixed our order. The order also came out promptly and delicious. Bottom line: The staff is amazing and I enjoy every meal here! Thank you Kapolei CPK for everything you do! See you soon. More...

Excellent waitress! Great steak! Love the service and atmosphere!
What a wonderful place to meet friends. David the manager visited our table several times and we received Awesome service!
Food is great at this location. And Mayinne was great. Please take care of great staff with great customer service. She also checked if we needed more bread. Restaurant is clean and presentable at this location. 30 mins wait before seating and friendly staff.They will txt you when table is ready. You get greeted when you enter and someone is always checking on you during dining. Mayinne made sure our dining was good. Mahalo Mayinne. God bless you more! Thank you. Our ohana needed a goid Ohana night. Mahalo. More...
Love this place. My daughter's favorite pizza place. She will actually eat the entire pizza by herself!!!I am extremely disappointed that they stopped carrying pesto sauce for pizza. This is the only reason I eat pizza here because I can not always eat red sauce. Their white sauce burns up in oven and the oil just doesnt cut it. So pesto was the best alternative for me to be able to enjoy pizza. Pesto keeps well too so not sure why they would do that. Pearlridge still had it.... but not sure how long they will either now :(Otherwise service is 90% awesome. Only have had 1 server who was a bit clueless and slow. Everyone else is amazing. This is one of the only places we will wait when its busy to eat. More...

Good place and good food.
We'd never been to the Kapolei CPK before. I called ahead of time to get us on a list, and then checked in at the time arranged. We were seated within minutes, but I think it would have taken quite a bit longer if we hadn't called to get out names on the list first. I tried the cauliflower crust this time, and it was good. Since I'm cutting way back on carbohydrates, this was a great choice for me, although it costs a bit more. Our server was friendly and the vibe in the place was lively. Now if they could just figure out a way to turn the 1-1/2 hour one-way commute into town and back into 1/2 hour, I would move out to this more spacious part of the island in a heartbeat! More...
This would have easily been a 1 Star all around until GM Alfie noticed our family waiting patiently in the corner (literally was sat down in the corner table by take out) and sent Caitlin over to serve us. She was very friendly & acknowledged she noticed no one came to serve us and apologized immediately. Alfie came over immediately after our order was taken, apologized, & gave us a complimentary small plate coupon. This is where the 5 stars take place. Our 4 yo was very fussy and Alfie acknowledges this in such positive and loving way. Went to the kitchen and came back with pizza dough for our son to play with! The complimentary plate does no justice to these two employees who acknowledged us and apologized immediately with no hesitation or excuses. Mahalo Alfie & Caitlin for making our dinner & Family time worth the trip to this CPK More...
The food is better at this location than the Mililani one- so weird. We hardly eat inside but CPK allows Kapolei High School to run a variety of fundraisers here. The management and servers are good. The take out area is usually really good except on my last visit. I can't remember her name but she blamed it on being "new"- which a month was what she considered new. She just gave me the wrong information on signing of tinders but it was cleared up. Food:1) spaghetti bolgnese- Yummy!!!2) lettuce wraps - OMg!!!3) any pizza with the cauliflower crust- 4) all appetizers More...
Food was great. First time there & not busy.
We came for dinner and was greeted by the staff once we walked in. They were really nice and asked if we were here for a special occasion. We got seated and got our server Brendan which gave us great customer service. We started off with the drinks and served our bread. We ordered an appetizer first which was the artichoke spinach dip. It came out fairly quick and the dip was hot and ready. It was good, I kinda like how the chips are different color; both colors taste the same though. Next was our entree. I ordered the Caesar salad with grilled chicken and my other half ordered the pesto cream penne with shrimp. Our server also stated that it was the last day it was being served and it'll be discontinued. The appetizer was finished and so was the bread but our entree didn't come in yet after waiting for more than 20 minutes. We thought it was a busy night for the kitchen staff so it didn't bother us that much. I did just order a salad so I thought something was up. Our server came time to time asking if we need anything but we were okay. After a little more waiting the manager comes and says that our order didn't go in and it was now being prepared. The manager offered us free desert for the inconvenience as well. Our server apologize and he even stated it's going to haunt him and give him nightmares hahaha. It wasn't really a big deal but everyone's different. The food though was great. The chicken fresh hot laying on top the salad and the soonly discontinued pesto cream penne tasted so good with shrimp. We finished eating and now it was desert. We got the butter cake and topped with everything they have to offer which was recommended by our server. The warm cake with the ice cream on top drizzled with chocolate syrup and whip on the side completed this dinner and the best part, it was on the house. The service made us forget that our food was a bit late and they really take care of you at this location. More...
Came in with three young children all under 8. Seated right away and they nicely gave us a table that fit our full size stroller. Then our waitress was pregnant and she was great. Left her a nice tip. Kids menu was great. Simple, open, modern, rustic feel. We came before the lunchtime rush. More...

Back again, because despite the continuous fails of course I still love to come here =P. Its been 2 yrs after my first review, and this update will be based off both dine-in and take-out. We do take-out most often because it's always so crowded here and we live just down the street.TAKE-OUT: They are consistently bad at 2 specific things, bread and utensils. They cannot ever get the complimentary house bread deal correct. Don't they know people actually do look forward to their bread/olive oil as part of their meal? I have experienced all of it: no bread/oil whatsoever, bread but no oil, oil but no bread, and the couple times I got "lucky" and got both bread and oil. Tonight though, I got about 15 pcs of bread, and no oil. WTH guys come on! I kept looking in the bag hoping it was a Mary Poppins bag and oil would show up eventually. What am I supposed to do with that much bread but no oil? Ohhhh make my own oil? Just use butter? Ok, but I had no choice! And then, these guys can never decide of they want to give you utensils or not. Sometimes their in there, sometimes their not...its a true hit or miss. It would actually be way more awesome to be consistently good/bad at something...at least we'd know what to expect, or not expect. Rating went up because they did get better with their food quality. I haven't had an issue with the quality since that last time. Dine-in is great when you can get in. Besides expected long wait times, it is very enjoyable. Staff is attentive and food comes out quick. I have tons of favorites here: avocado rolls, spinach dip (with pita), sicilian pizza, garlic chicken pizza, tostada pizza, thai crunch salad, chicken tequilla fettuccine, and butter cake, etc....but my absolute cannot live without favorite? PEACH ICED TEA! More...
Cauliflower crust pizzas are so good! We've tried 5 different pizzas, and all delicious. Alice our server was really above and beyond, and because of her, we will be back to this location.
Right off the bat I have to say, this CPK especially has delicious choices and an amazing ambiance. This past weekend my family and I made a reservation for 14 after my brother proposed to his girlfriend, and the staff was super accommodating for our big group! There was a delicious variety of appetizers and entrees; my go-to order is the chicken piccata and mango iced tea (which comes with free refills by the way!) Aside from the selection, the ambiance of this establishment was amazing! My family and I are from Lāie, so we don't usually go out to Kapolei unless we have to. I've seen the Ala Moana and Kailua locations, but this one stood out to me because of the amazing decor. There were subtle hints of this north-shore retro vibe that made my dinner feel that much more nostalgic. All in all, my ohana and I had a great experience and will definitely make the trek out to this side of the island more often to dine at this family favorite! More...
My friend took me there, so I tried their pizza while she has chosen a soup or in that case two, as they offer to split the order into two soups. Which I really like so you can try more than one. I didn't try it, but my friend said that is has been delicious. I wasn't sure which pizza I should take so I've choose my friends favorite: Thai chicken pizza. Doesn't it sound like the weirdest combination?!?But it was really good. Our waitress was really nice and answered all if our questions and the restaurant manager came by to say hello after she had heard that it was my very first time at cpk. I would definitely go there again or to any of their other locations. The only thing that I wished they would have on the menu would be a tiny side salad - just green lettuce, maybe a slice of tomato and cucumber - nothing fancy or big. More...
Food is great as always and services is okay.
Family friendly, reasonably priced, tasty pizza and fresh salad! Highly recommend
Jeffrey K. Gaspar
Came for dinner Wednesday night with My Frenchie Bruno. Greeted me warmly from the hostesses. I requested outside seating although the section was closed they accommodated me with a outside table. MOD stopped by to see how everything was, which was a nice touch and well appreciated. My server Christine was awesome! Checked on me throughout my whole meal without missing a beat. Great Service Overall. Mahalo. More...
It's the day after hurricane Lane and it is busy. With that the service is awesome and the food is spectacular. Thank you CPK fl
Lunch was awesome today. Food was on point. Mr. Derek our server was awesome. Waiting time to get a table was good and food came out quick. Great job CPK; making me a happier customer by every visit. We've had different servers and it's good know that customer service has been consistently awesome and so as the food quality More...
Great service. Amazing food. Parking is tough but the design of the restaurant is beautiful
I was there just to drink... The bartender was awesome, very personal, great drink knowledge... Atmosphere is always alive... Love the food, especially their veggie dishes... Great for Ohana time... More...
Our first time eating at California Pizza Kitchen in Kapolei. The food was delicious, the beer cold, and the staff was pleasant.
It’s good place to eat,the servers are friendly
There are several reasons why Kapolei CPK is an awesome location: 1. THEY TAKE RESERVATIONS!!!!!!! That's right, this CPK accepts reservations. The kind where you call and tell them when you're coming with how many in your party and they have a table ready for you when you arrive! Yes, that kind of reservation! I didn't know it was possible for a CPK to accept reservations, but apparently it is! So um....Kahala...you might want to take a clue.... take reservations so we don't have to wait a freaking hour half! Ok enough about that. I've beaten the dead horse to its second death. 2. The service is on point. They're just good, warm, local people. The manager was so nice. Our server went above and beyond for us. 3. There's indoor and outdoor seating. If you're too cold inside, outside is really nice. If you're the type that sweats in AC, you should opt for the interior dining area so you don't get heat stroke. It's Kapolei afterall.4. I know the menu items are supposed to be consistent at any location, but I swear the food was actually better here. Like my Thai crunch salad was fresher, with more of the crunchy stuff and avocado, the dressing wasn't too heavy.... the kung pao spaghetti was the bomb as usual too. Good job raising the bar for the other CPKs, Kapolei. Good. Job. More...
Ordered the crispy fish tacos, they were delicious. The fish had a nice spice to it and the sriracha ranch was great along with the fresh cilantro and avocado slices. It came with tortilla chips and salsa and that was great as well. We also got the artichoke/spinach dip for an appetizer and it was delicious as well. Our waiter was excellent, I wish I remembered his name but the service was incredible. Definitely would recommend this place! More...
Food is really good here but service isn't. Our table Had the grilled chicken flatbread, arugula salad, white chicken pizza, Cobb salad. Kids had Mac and cheese and pasta with red sauce. All were delicious. Waiter was very nice but super busy. Waited a long time for drinks and extra bread. Received buffalo cauliflower appetizer (also really good, beautifully garnished) when dinner was almost over. Still I would recommend this place over the Cheesecake Factory across the street. Butter cake is still the best dessert. More...
Everyone enjoyed their dinner. Service was good. Chicken Piccata was excellent.
Music slightly too loud. Hard to comfortably talk and hear dining party. Otherwise, great place to eat. Food tastes great.
Service was slow, it took 15 minutes after sitting to get menus. Food came out mostly on time. We got a kids Hawaiian pizza and thought it was the one we ordered. It did look small. After we were nearly finished eating, our real pizza came. I told the manager, who just happened to stop at our table. Of course we were not charged. Food was tasty. More...
Service was great up till my son found a broken piece of toothpick in his sandwich. They used toothpicks to hold together his sandwich, but the one we found want broken off of either of them. He was chewing it cause he thought it was a tough piece of bacon (which his sandwich had) till he spit it out. That could've ended badly.... The manager stopped by, apologized, smiled and offered a free dessert (which we declined) but there wasn't any genuine empathy in her actions at all... That's the part that got me and my wife. I'm thinking "uh one of your cooks probably shoved a toothpick into the sandwich, went in crooked, pulled it out and didn't pay attention to make sure ALL of it came out, then put in another toothpick and you offer me a free dessert? Where's the genuine sorry " My food was delicious and my daughter's spaghetti was great. Just stay away from food items with toothpicks? More...
We came here last night and we had to wait because it was a Friday night at 7pm but it was hands down the best food we’ve had in awhile. We have tried several restaurants on the island and this was the freshest pizza and ingredients we have had even on the mainland. We had the fried Mac n cheese and we loved it! It wasn’t overly cheesy; it was the perfect amount of deliciousness. Everything we ordered was delicious! The red velvet cake was one of the best cakes I’ve had in general. It was a buttercream whipped frosting and had the perfect balance sweet but not overly sweet like most cakes are. The service was exceptional as well. We will be coming back here as much as we can. More...
Food and service was great
Been to kapolei CPK several times in the past year. But this last time I went was the best service I ever had. First of all open table is awesome since I didn’t have to wait in line for a seat since I came right on time to my rsvp and for the first time my food came quickly, my water was filled in a timely manner and my food came in a reasonable time and my waiter gave me and my family outstanding service.
Good pizzas and salads...and free food with award points!
Best services! Was a wonderful time for my outing with my husband and my waiter even brought me a sunday for my bday was very nice.
Awesome service and close to home
We've been here a bunch of times since they opened in Kapolei. Service can be hit or miss, but tonight the service was great. For appetizers, we got the chicken lettuce wraps and the chicken avocado egg rolls. The egg rolls come with a ranch and a chipotle ranch dipping sauce. It was our first time getting the lettuce wraps and we wouldn't get them again. I usually get the BBQ chicken chopped salad. It's $3.00 extra if you get avocado. Ordered two pepperoni pizza kids meals and the keiki sundaes were only $0.99. My husband got his usual - the Sicilian pizza - and he said it's always good. More...
We were seated immediately inside the dining room. The temperature was a little too cold for us, so we requested to sit outside if seating was available there. We were promptly given a table in the patio area. Server time was satisfactory as well as the food. Our final check had an error which the server corrected for us. Getting our check and paying took a little longer than we wanted, but the restaurant was getting busier by then. Overall, our experience was not outstanding, but it would not keep us from visiting again as it was acceptable. More...
No wait, quick food and great service.
Music too loud. Hard to talk to diners within your own party. Otherwise, totally love the place. This app makes the reservation process so much easier!!
We love getting together here because of the menu options and portions. It’s a great way to taste test everything! Bre was training but, kudos to her trainer for doing a great job. She was attentive to our requests for extra plates and ice which made lunch more pleasant. More...
Priority seating cut more than half of the normal wait time off for us. When we checked in we had to wait about 15 minutes then we were seated. The normal wait time at that point was 30 - 45 minutes. Service was fast and efficient. Food was tasty as always! Butter cake with ice cream is the bomb!! More...
I love CPK and it has been a really long time since we have been here so we decided to dine here. The menu has changed a bit with thrm adding on options and taking things out or combining certain foods. They lost a star for service. It depends on where you are seated and we noticed if you are in the middle of the restaurant then the service is somehow a bit more lacking. This is at least our 7th visit and we have been seated everywhere but the 4 times including last night the service was worst. but enough of that. Theyre food. We ordered the spinach dip and was surprised they stop the option with pita bread with it. but the dip and chips were still good. Husband ordered their salad i forgot the name and he says it was good. they combined the chinese chicken salad which use to be my fave with the thai crunch salad and it was really good. we also had the buffalo cauliflower and that was good. so overall, everything was good foodwise but the trend of the middle section having very slow slow service when it was not busy knocked that star off. More...
We love CPK and usually the service is pretty good. Looks like they had a lot of people and even the drinks took a while. Food is always great.
Decided to have Dinner here with my newly Married Daughter and Husband. The food was Delicious.
Today was an awesome day for great service at the Kapolei California pizza kitchen. It was really nice of the manager to stop by our table and thank us for our business being there. We had an office luncheon which consisted of 10 of us. Our server JUSTIN was VERY attentive. He was on it with everything. Our food was ready when we got there. He checked on our table every time he passed by. I had the chicken fettuccine Alfredo with cremini mushroom. It was perfect this time around. Because the last time we came my noodle tasted like it was not thoroughly cooked thru. It was still hard. This time is was a perfect texture. Justin had such great service. He was friendly and always had a nice be smile. Even though we asked him for a million things, he smiled and said ok. So happy to serve us. I absolutely LOVE great customer service. I definitely will be coming back, due to the great service we had today. Thank you More...
Always nice to enjoy the food and relax. Thanks for everything CPK
It was Father's Day. Super Busy, but worth the wait. Our waiter made sure we've got everything we needed. So glad I booked it thru OpenTable...otherwise the wait was over 2 hours long! Oh yes, BUTTER CAKE is a must at CPK. More...
Came to CPK for mother's day this year and opted to sit at the bar as the restaurant was hoppin! My mother in law and I both ordered pizzas, while my not so hungry better half filled up on complimentary bread. The bar service was WONDERFUL, the pizza was GREAT, and we had an all around good time! I would definitely recommend. Only thing is it can be a little pricey for pizza, but you get what you pay for :) More...
Night out for fun food & drinks!! Our waitress Tasha was great.... loved that she smiled each time she arrived at our table. Thank you Tasha The food was yummy ordered Shrimp Scampi Pizza, my first time ordering that style. Added some red pepper flakes - that pizza was gone - down the hatch into the wonderful world of the hungry belly!! Oh also tried the Cauliflower Buffalo Style Appetizer that was delicious... I would recommend for a healthier choice of starters... My wine of choice Kendall Jackson Chardonnay so refreshing and paired great with my meal. No I am not the wine connoisseur- just the average foodie with drinks! Definitely will return -- I must say things seem to have improved from the last time I went there. I say check it out ... get some yummy for the tummy! Next time I check I will be trying something new! More...
The kitchen was a little slow but overall great food! Pepperoni pizza and Cesar salad is delicious!!
Food was typical CPK which is good but the service was fantastic.
So.... this was my first experience at this cpk and it was pretty good :) Wait time: decent! It was about ,40 mins. And we got a text to let us know our table was ready which was good. Service: excellentfood: great we will be back! More...
This is my 2nd time going to CPK and it's pretty good considering the price which is around $20. We ordered: The original BBQ chicken chopped salad full $16.99 w avocados $3.00Pesto cream penne $13.78 w chicken $3.25Carne asada $17.49 pizza The carne asada was new for me since I've never had it before. And the pesto penne was lightly overwhelming basil taste but still yummy! And the salad was interesting w different textures with beans, corn, crunchy strips, lettuce and more. More...
Our waiter was on it!!! His customer service was outstanding I’ve eaten here many times and the service I received honestly sucked until just this last visit
Server nice & courteous but offered refills on bread & drinks separately. We never got either. She must have been having a busy night. We’ll still go back .
I was out shopping with a friend and decided to stop here for lunch. It was a hot day and there was a line out the door. Seating was available outside, but no one wanted to sit in the heat. I lucked out and found two seats at the bar. The bar tender was friendly and attentive. We decided to just other appetizers to share. We ordered the spicy fried buffalo cauliflower and the Sonoma flatbread. Both were great. The Buffalo cauliflower was pretty spicy served in cool ranch dressing and blue cheese crumbs! SO GOOD! The flatbread sounded interesting due to they bake grapes in it, a interesting twist to capture the feel of Sonoma valley in a flat bread. It turned out to be very a good blend of sweet grapes, cheese and fresh arugula. I would definitely order these again.Good service Great foodGet the Buffalo Cauliflower!!!!! More...
like all the CPK's i've been to, i loooove everything about their menu! only downfall would be the wait time. but hey, just like any other restaurant right? (: no biggie. i love their sangrias! and till this day cannot decide which i like best! thank god for their trio sampler yeeee! More...
Despite the delays, our server Pebbles and the Manager made sure our experience was a positive one. The food was delicious and served at the right temperature. The presentation was great and the flavors were amazing. Loved the decor, ambiance and friendly smiles all around. More...
This restaurant was so tasty.. our waiter Justin was the bomb... always kept refilling our waters... half way boom!! Right there!!! He's here filling it up.. always kept comin with house bread !!! Plate empty!! Boom!!! And another 1 cheeeehooo! More...
Shanna Renee' M.
This an updated review. I came here during the week for dinner with my husband and 2 children. We were sat quickly without issues. The waiter was courteous and attentive. We ordered the Cali Avocado Pizza, kids Hawaiian pizza and kids Alfredo pasta. I knew to ask for xtra sauce this time around so it wouldn't be dried out. Overall I enjoyed our meal and I'm glad the service has improved since our last subpar visit. More...
I visited this place many times before and on Sunday, May 20, 2018 was one of the best as the other times left me unpleased. My husband and I sat at the bar, and we received a greeting almost immediately. We ordered our drinks and the specialty was made perfectly, some cucumber something but the Long Island Ice Tea was just ok. I ordered buffalo cauliflower they have the best on the island and of course today it was made perfectly. We also order the cake and ice cream and it was absolutely amazing. The server was nice and the pupus was good. Didn't get a pizza because I have never found one that I truly enjoy. More...
Our experience here was awesome! Our server Josh was amazing, he was so nice and attentive to our table. We ordered a thin crust Sicilian pizza and a shrimp scampi with a few drinks. We were hesitant on ordering the pizza because the tomato sauce was "spicy", but we ordered it anyway and it wasn't spicy at all. The manager even came to our table to see how our dinner was. The management at this location was great and FAST! We usually have to wait long to be seated or wait for our food. If you by any chance have Josh as a server, give him a generous tip! You won't regret it! More...

We love CPK and how it supports our community! Yclifeteen from St. Elizabeth church has held a couple fundraisers at Pearlridge location. Not only did we have a great meal, we had a good time. Great staff and helpful administrative office. MAHALO!! More...
Lunch was great. I had the cauliflower crust sausage and mushroom pizza that was delicious. I loved the taste and it was gluten free. I also had the avocado egg rolls that was great as well. Excellent service, atmosphere, and value. More...
Came here a couple of days ago to order something for pick up. When i picked up my food and got back to my hotel, i noticed that they forgot my lettuce and avocados for my club pizza. I called them back and was told they were sorry. The manager already knew about the situation and wanted to talk to me personally. She apologized a lot and was very nice. I can back to the restaurant and was greeted by the manager again. She compensated me with a gift card and said she was sorry again. I am very impressed with them. The fact that the manager knew and was notified that they messed up on my order just shows how much they care about the customer. I really appreciated everything and the kindness they shared. It's not often you meet managers like that or staff. Food was good as usual, portions bigger than California. No complaints there. More...
I've never had a problem eating at CPK. I'm always up for it. I always get the Chicken Picatta. (If you love zesty, lemon, and capers; get this dish!) At first, this location's Chicken Picatta wasn't so good. It didn't have the right taste as the Pearlridge location. But they def upped their game and the chicken piccata is soooo good now! I'm barely down this side because I'm always at the Pearlridge location. But overall, CPK will never get old.This one is located at Kamakana Alii, the parking CAN get a little rough but I mean, it's worth it. Plus you can shop afterwards. More...
It's been a while since I've been back, I'm glad I did. Just as the table tent said "See things differently'", wow have things improved. In all fairness I have to say my first review was a little harsh but true. This time it's like a breath of fresh air.We were warmly greeted by 'Kelcey ', really sweet and welcoming. The restaurant was really pumping for a Sunday night, you could sense the busy-ness but regardless she was very welcoming! Thanks Kelcey!!For starters we ordered the buffalo cauliflower with Gorgonzola and ranch, chicken lettuce wrap, and artichoke dip. The cauliflower was delicious spicy but the dressing cools it down. The lettuce wraps my new favorite was excellent, this actually can be a meal if you're not that hungry. The artichoke dip was also delicious, with crunchy chips.The manager tonight Shay came over to apologize for the delay in our food delivery..how thoughtful! We were really engrossed in the appetizers we hardly noticed. Thank you for that!Then for dinner we had a Cobb salad, chicken Milanese, rib eye, kids Mac & cheese, garlic cream fettuccine with double mushrooms, and a garlic cream fettuccine with chicken and mushrooms. That was the best way to a birthday week celebration. Everything was fantastic from beginning to end. Thanks for making dinner for my family.I now see things differently! More...
We just got home from CPK and it was Awesome!! We waited awhile but we'll worth it! We had two apps. One was avocado egg rolls and spinach artichoke dip with unsalted chips. Then we had two pizzas one was pepperoni an the other was chicken barbecue with bacon. All of our food was great and our server was very fast! More...
Yhe jambalay padta is super good! You cant go wrong with the pizzas and salads! The buffalo cauliflower and yhe ahi rolls are great starters
This was my first visit to CPK. I was a little cautious at first when the hostess had to confer with other employees before seating us. After seating all was good. Our server was excellent, food was fantastic !We enjoyed our ringside seat watching the pizza artist. It did take quite while to get our desert that was ordered but well worth it !I'm just sorry we don't have a CPK in my city. More...
Not a bad value for great pizza and pasta. They have a full bar if you wanna get your drink on. That have an outside patio where it's a little warmer. Inside if the restaurant is a little chilly so you might wanna bring a jacket. Located at Kamakana Alii Mall across Cheesecake Factory. There's ample parking but can't get sorta crowded on Fridays and Saturdays since a lot of families will grab a bit to eat and then catch a movie or shop. Appetizers I'd recommend would be the artichoke dip and the egg rolls. Can't go wrong with those 2. As far as pizza, Jamaican Jerk Chicken is a great choice if you want something with a little spice. That accompanied by a BBQ chop salad is always a great combo. And for goodness sake get a margarita while you're waiting lol! More...
First of all, I just love love CPK. But it's even better when you get great Service ! As soon as we walked in, we where greeted with big warm smiles and positive attitude. As we got seated the waitress (Brittany) AKA pebbles was very polite, friendly and very energetic. She has such a great customer service ! She recommended some dishes that we where interested in and even the drinks ! CPK Kapolei management please acknowledge Brittanys hard work as well as everyone else! Mahalo!! More...
Love their Caesar salad and pizzas. Clean restaurant, great service and awesome wine selection
I gave a 4 star because the wait time for food took longer than I'd expected. But my waitress was very nice and she updated me on the wait time for our food. I didnt mind because I had a free pizza using my cpk reward. When she brought our food she mentioned that there was another pizza on the way because the pizza she just gave me was the wrong size. From that point I didnt care cuz I had another free pizza. I was happy :) More...
Came here about 2 days ago and the service was great! (Dinner time)Our food came out quick and it tasted good too. Everybody who works there looks like they take pride in their job so thank you cpk! Keep up the good work. Also my husband says thank you to Sage for cleaning up all the men's bathroom More...
Everything was AWESOME! I will definitely be utilizing this feature more!
Service was great. Food and drinks came out quickly. Food was very tasty!!!
Great place to grab a bite and they make excellent pizza options. A little noisy but good service
Danielle Ing Himalaya
The staff at CKP are awesome. Always a pleasure to go there. I also appreciate they connect with the surrounding schools and give back making community/school partnerships!
Good food and friendly atmosphere especially with the service that was provided by the staff members.
It worth doing the priority seating on opentable. Sometimes the wait can be between 20 - 30 minutes for walkup.
Huge chicken alfredo lover & this place never disappoints my cravings. Absolutely love the chicken alfredo I always add mushrooms in. Soo good.
I like CPK but their food is definitely on the more expensive side. I usually get their BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad with avocado or Kung Pao Spaghetti. Sometimes I get their BBQ chicken pizza but I got so used to buying these from the grocery store and just cooking them at home. I know the fresh pizza from the restaurant tastes better but IMO I don't think there's a huge difference in taste since I cook it on my Pampered Chef Pizza Stone. The only difference is the restaurant pizza is crunchier and more expensive.During my last visit at this location I ordered the full sized BBQ Chicken Chopped salad with avocado. It tasted very good and the ingredients were fresh. I usually dump a lot of dressing on my salad and I love the explosion of all the different flavors and texture with each bite. Were it not for the price, $16.99 for the full size plus $3 for the avocados I would eat this salad more often since it's healthy but hearty enough to fill me up. I'm a big eater. Lol. However, for $20 prior to tip, I need to limit my trips to this place. TIP: Buy CPK gift cards from Costco before coming here. You can buy $100 worth of gift cards for $80. This will make your wallet and your stomach happy. Bon appetit! More...
Wasn't worth putting in a reservation because we still have to wait almost 40 minutes after we got there.
We love that it's consistent at any CPK on the island and we have dined at all of them. The salads are to die for and the service is great, lots of refills on water and free bread. The children enjoy the menu choices and pricing is good. More...
I have eaten at this location multiple times and I don't think I ever had a problem with service or food from here. I am not a pizza fan but I do like their bbq pizza if I ever feel like pizza. The one thing that usually brings me back is their desert. I really enjoy the butter cake with ice cream. I feel like it isn't too sweet but just right. More...
CPK even though the food may go wrong we still go back ! They will fix the problem., so it's not really a big deal! We enjoy the food and ambiance.
Great customer service...thanks Christine! Garlic cream fettuccine was still watery, but I was impressed they took the time to correct our order and make sure it was right.
Had the most amazing Valentine's day lunch here. Malinda was our server and she made adequate suggestions for drinks as well as appetizers. She never missed a beat...The General Manager Alfie also came to our table to check on us. He was sweet and really made sure our experience was one to remember...we are definately coming back...thank you CPK for a beautiful Valentines.... avo rolls, buffalo cauliflower and chixken lettuce wraps...oh my...yummy!!! More...
Once again, BiteSquad totally messed up my order, too many times to count and the order actually went to CPK Mililani for pickup, not Kapolei for delivery. I drove over to Kapolei and was quickly directed to Manager Ronnie Aviles. Without hesitation she quickly cancelled the Mililani order, placed an expedited order at her store, and kept checking on me until all the food was done. Things go wrong and stuff happens but the real test of any company is how they deal with customers and address screwups, in this case, again, by BiteSquad. I cannot say enough about how efficient, caring and professional Ronnie was - definitely one of the best restaurant managers I've ever encountered. I will remain loyal to this store no matter what, as a result. More...
This CPK is located in the Ka Makana Alii mall in Kapolei. They are across of Cheesecake Factory. They always have a wait every time I go but what's awesome about this place is if you give them your name and cell number, they can text you as soon as your table is ready! So instead of waiting, you can do a little shopping.The staff here are very friendly and attentive. I always love to order their avocado rolls and wedge salad for starters. I usually order their Jumbalaya pasta and I'm always satisfied with this dish. One thing about CPK they're consistent and you know you'll never be disappointed with their food! More...
This was my first time eating at this beautiful location. The reason it's 4 stars is because of the ridiculous wait time. When my family and I walked in, there were so many open available tables. It could possibly be that they were under staffed but c'mon it's a Saturday night, you know it'll be busy. Our waitress Brittany was really sweet, always smiling, and always checked on us :). Food came out faster than I thought it would. I always order the chicken piccata, it's my favorite!! I'll def. be back since its so close to home as well.Visited again on Super bowl Sunday 2/04/18 at 530P. Party of 4. Got seated right away. A worker said our waitress will be right with us, but nobody came for 10 minutes. I had to ask for WATER! Waitress still didn't show up so the same lady who got our water just took our order down. Other than that, food came quick and everything was delicious. We ordered 2 different pizzas and 2 different pastas. Our waitress checked on us several times and filled our water right away. More...
No wait, seated right away. Can't was very good and attentive. Food was excellent
I'm going to start with the impeccable service provided by our server, Danielle. She was awesome and handled the little hiccup in service with grace. On a side note, I LOVED the Chinese chicken salad, but it is no longer on the menu and that made me sad when she told us this. It has been replaced with the Thai crunch salad. For appetizers we had the lettuce wraps and artichoke dip. Both were yum. However, we ordered the lettuce wrap with chicken and shrimp, but they accidently brought us someone else's lettuce wrap with only chicken. Danielle apologized and promptly corrected this when we brought it to their attention. I got the Thai Crunch Salad to try to see if it was comparable to the Chinese chicken salad. Not really, but it was good. The salad consists of slivers of Napa cabbage makes up the bulk of the salad with chicken strips, shelled edamame, cilantro, purple cabbage, julienned carrots and cucumbers, seasoned roasted peanuts, fried wonton strips, and rice noodles for added crunch and color, covered in a Thai peanut sauce that has a slight spice to it. The veggies in the salad is probably premixed ahead of time and kept in the fridge til time for plating as it was super cold when it got to the table. Personally, I like my salad just a bit cooler than room temp. IDK I'm weird. With so many ingredients some get lost or even could be considered overwhelming with so many flavors, but I liked it. The other half tried it and made a face, he was definitely not a fan.We also had:Chicken Piccata (sans the capers) - the pasta was a good portion with a good lemon sauce on it and the chicken was so tender and perfectly flavorful. You get 3 almost palm sized pieces of chicken breast. Garlic Cream Fettuccini with chicken - always a good go to if you don't want anything too crazy and are just hungry and want something to hit the spot. Thai Chicken Pizza - I didn't try it. My oldest ordered it and said he really liked it. He ate half and took the rest for lunch. It does come with raw bean sprouts that gets put on after baking. Not a fan of raw beansprouts. So if I were to have eaten it I would have picked them off. Kid's menu BBQ Chicken pizza, he liked it, but then he saw his father's fettuccini and instantly wanted his instead. :/ Don't forget to get the app and collect points for discounts and specials.

I always wanted to go and try there food so when they opened one on the west side at the new mall I was excited... OMG!! There was no wait at all we were seated right away but the hostess wasn't friendly so that's sad .. but our waitress was very friendly an super sweet and the food was Amazingly Delicious!!! I was surprised how the atmosphere was very relaxing , the service was on point , the decor was very eye catching an very inviting. They only downfall is the 2 girls I'm guessing they suppose to be the hostess... which is sad to me they are the first person you meet and the last person you'll see smh... they talk story among themselves then greet you like you interrupted there conversations and same when you leave an rolled there eyes at you , not good ladies! If I was the manager I wouldn't them greeting my customers... Customer Service should be your number one priority always in any establishment maybe that's why you're ratings is sooo low , cause I know it ain't the food hint..But overall I'm giving it a 5 Star rating for our waitress, the guy who was walking around and checking on how everything was, they girl who brought our food and the cook staff who made our delicious food ... Thank you for making our first time ever in one of your CPKs ever an enjoyable one , we will definitely be back again. I wish I remembered our waitress's name I would recommend everyone to ask for her Awesome Customer Service from beginning to end !! More...
I always find here and order the Bbq cobb chicken salad cause it's the best in the world!
This is our go to CPK, we love it here! Not just because it's down the street from where we live but because we love everything about this restaurant!Atmosphere/Decor: Modern, trendy, high ceilings, open view to kitchen, well stocked bar area with TV's, clean bathrooms. Service: We have never had bad service here even if we've been here at least 15 times! The hosts/hostesses are friendly and welcoming. The servers are friendly and attentive. Since we've been here quite a bit some of them remember us and we often talk stories with them catching up on what's been going on with each other. Managers are also attentive, they help out the servers and bussers and check with customers to see if they are enjoying their visit with them.Food: Appetizers, Pizzas, Pastas, Sandwiches, Soups, Salads, Desserts. They will have something on the menu that will peak your taste buds. Our favorite appetizers has to be the Spinach Artichoke Dip and the Chicken Avocado Egg Rolls. I love the Stroprazeti Mushroom Pasta for a vegan choice, the Waldorf Salad is one of my favs and the Margherita Pizza. They just added Power Bowls to their menu and I love the Santa Fe Bowl which has spinach, faro, chicken, avocado, pumpkin seeds, tomatoes and I forget what other yummy goodness was in there. And dessert....BUTTER CAKE ALA MODE!!!!!Thumbs Up: They have an App you can download and everytime you dine there your purchase goes to adding up points for free stuff. Like a free small bite, or a $ amount off.Thumbs Down: Sometimes the wait is very long, I tend to like restaurants that you make reservations at. But I don't give it any less stars because that's how CPK has always run their restaurants and that's what I expect. More...

Very nice service and food. It’s pricey but that’s Hawaii. I loved the delicious pea soup and lettuce wedge salad I had. Their bread is super too.
Restaurant was very busy at 7pm on a Sunday. Our server was friendly and informative. Food came at a reasonable time. From what I could see, everyone's food looked good. I had the halibut and it was nicely done. More...
Came here to watch football with my bf on a Sunday. We were able to sit at the bar right away. Bf got a coke and i got a Beehive Sangria (my CPK go-to!)Our waiter promptly gave us bread and took our food orders. Bread was cold and stale (sad face!) but at least it was something to munch on. For food, my bf got the club sandwich (choice of turkey or chicken, he chose turkey) which came with a small Caesar salad. I got the wild mushroom pizza on whole wheat crust, YUM! For dessert, I redeemed my birthday reward and got the butter cake with ice cream. Ice cream wasn't covered under the reward, but that's ok. Butter cake is my fave! Moist cake with caramelized sugar on top, yummI really like sitting at the bar as the TVs are large and service is decent. Highly recommend signing up for the CPK Pizza Dough rewards if you haven't already! If you want, you can also pay on the mobile app if you can't wait for your server to bring the check. Convenient!Cheers to CPK on the Westside! Will definitely be back in the near future More...
We had an awesome experience here! Our hostess was pleasant and our waitress Melika was awesome! She definitely catered to our four girls!All the girls ordered the cheese pizza. 3 out of the four girls gave it a thumbs up! The best part though, was our waitress brought out some pizza dough for the girls to play with while we waited on the food! This definitely occupied them the whole time! Even after eating, they went back to playing with their play-"dough!" Even if it is a little dusty, we had happy kids! Happy kids=Happy parents!My go to meal is the BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad which is what I always come to CPK for! My husband enjoyed the Ribeye with a side of Fettuccini Alfredo. We also tried out the Crispy Ahi Rolls which were also awesome!We definitely will be coming back to this location again and will be recommending it to all our family and friends over all the other restaurants at Ka Makana Alii! Best thing is it's kid friendly! More...
We were there before our reserved time however did not get seated until 15 minutes later after we checked twice - there were lots of open tables however it seemed they were trying to determine the servers - just to note at different locations-Managers do come out to check on tables - At this location this was not the case

My friend and I came here yesterday after a long days work just to hang out have a couple drinks and an appetizer to unwind. The hostess Cheyne greeted us. She was very invited and had a friendly smile the entire time we were there. Great spot for her to be at as she is just a very welcoming person. She checked on us continually. The bartender assisting us was Eddie. He was super friendly and his drinks were great. (Lots of places I've gone too, the drinks are horrible and very watered down) He talked with us a lot. Actually made us stay longer and spend more money cus he was very friendly. We had a great time, would definitely come here again. Hope all the staff is as nice and friendly as they are. After that visit, it would be disappointing to have anything less. Great job Cheyne & Eddie! Keep it up. More...
Always enjoy eating at CPK a favorite place at KaMakana Ali
I liked how the staff are friendly and attentive. Orders were quick.
Great service here. We came here on a Wednesday and it wasn't busy at all. I always order the Chicken Piccata as a main course and that's always good. The Avocado Egg Rolls and the Lettuce Wraps are always good too for appetizers. Very affordable prices. Great staff and great service. I'll come back here again. More...
This would've been a great day to dine in at one of our favorite restaurants, but my son and I decided to go for takeout. I was very impressed with the whole transaction. We actually got there around half an hour after the place opened. We were greeted at the front, and the hostess directed us to the other end of the restaurant where I had no idea that there was a separate entrance to the takeout counter! Duly noted.. we were both kinda hungry so we ordered enough, probably for 5 people! But we were planning on sharing, so we got:-California Cobb Salad w/ side of beets-"the works" pizza(its every single topping you can imagine)-shrimp scampi zucchini-wild mushroom strozzapreti with chicken(the chicken was an extra, you actually don't need to order any meat with this dish!)Did I mention we were feeling hungry? For dessert, we ordered the Butter Cake, sadly without the vanilla ice cream since we were taking it home, and the Salted Caramel Pudding. Oh.My.Gosh...it was freakin awesome! I can agree that their takeout portions are actually a good amount, even when you're sharing and you don't mean to. We got full fast, but that didn't stop us from trying some dessert! But pasta and pizza are always good foods to have for leftovers! Danielle, who helped take out order was very polite, and did an amazing job! She reassured me that their gift card machine was taking a little bit longer to process, but told me that our food would be ready in 10-15 minutes. Instead of just waiting around for it, she asked if I wanted her to call me when it was ready, then that way we could look around the mall. How great is that?! Kudos to you Danielle! More...
I will definitely use open table to book in the future.
Servers are friendly and the service was good. Great place for lunch with friends and family.
Priority seating worked great! Average wait time with it was less than 10 minutes. Without it more like an hour.
This was a long awaited blast from the past! I haven't been to California pizza kitchen since the 90s before I moved to California, now that I'm back home it's great that they have more of them closer to my house on the west side. I went to the newest one at the new mall in Kapolei Ka Makana Ali'i. It was great! I wanted a pizza with a white sauce and the only one they had was a shrimp pizza but I am allergic to shrimp, so they made it with chicken instead and tasted great! Service was great, the atmosphere looked clean and modern. They have a legit bar too! I can't wait to go again to try another pizza or even their great pastas. More...
Our server was awesome! She made it a great experience.
Ordered fish tacos and it was okay. Should have ordered a pizza or pasta but wanted to try something new. Our server was friendly and very attentive.
Great place to dine in bustling shopping center, priority seating was a plus
We ate here the other night to celebrate my baby turning 2. Got here at about 6:45 and were promptly seated. Our waitress was ok. Not bad but also not incredibly friendly but we found out later that she had been up since 5:30am, has 5 kids at home and was visibly pregnant with her 6th. She was actually friendlier towards the end of her meal. But I am a mom of 3 young kids so I never fault another mom for working hard to support her family and being tired. She is trying her best I know. We put in our order fairly quick due to the kid and it came out quick enough for my liking. She also brought us a lot of bread which was helpful. I am on a pretty strict diet and I really appreciate how accommodating CPK is to patrons like me. I sometime get big eye rolls from servers and kitchen staff but CPK is really liberal when it comes to substitutions or special dietary restrictions. I didn't need to make substitutions though. They have a shrimp scampi zucchini dish that is phenomenal. So good that I was too excited to even take a pic. But it's shrimp scampi with half fettuccini noodles and half zucchini noodle. And they make the zucchini noodle broader to blend well with the fettuccini. And it tasted like they made their scampi sans butter which helped my special diet even better. I felt like I could comfortably dine out and be in control of my diet. The amount of pasta in my dish made me feel like I got a taste of it without depriving myself of it or feeling guilty for eating it. Thank you CPK! More...
Another California Pizza Kitchen at a new mall, Oh yes please, I am a fan! I just love this California Pizza Kitchen location! Yes., we need more CPK locations and happy that CPK is now on the west side. I have been here many times and it is so convenient for my family. After the movies & shopping, what a treat to end with dinner. This fairly new CPK opened on 9.30.2016. I remember when I dined during their grand opening, the wait was over an hour, so I went shopping and I received a text that our table was ready, such great service. During my recent visit while staying out at Koolina, We didn't have to wait for a table, it must be that I am lucky or because of Cheesecake Factory. Doesn't matter, I was happy that we didn't have to wait. Every visit, it gets better every time. I love this CPK location, with great and modern decor, love the full bar with multiple big screen TVs. The restaurant is spacious and great seating, indoor and outdoor. What is your favorite at CPK? Although everything is so good and I want to order everything on the menu, my favorites are the Thai crunch salad, with avocado for 3.00 more is a must and I always get the full size, BBQ chicken pizza, and recently I am in love with the Jambalaya!! For some reason, the Jambalaya is so much tastier at this location. This is enough for my family. Oh & I must have the bread with my Thai crunch salad and jambalaya. YUMs!! & for dessert, I LOVE the butter cake! This is a must order, the butter cake with ice cream. Think pound cake but this butter cake is way better, served warm and taste out of the oven fresh! During this recent visit, Kasey was our server and she was awesome! She provided excellent service, from taking our orders, filling our drinks and checked on us often. Since I had leftovers, she even gave me extra, fresh bread to bring to the hotel. Overall, this is the best CPK, (my opinion) I can't wait for my next visit to the west side and for CPK again!!#120/100/2017 More...
CPK as most of my friends refer to California Pizza Kitchen is a place we tend to venture when we want a pasta or pizza fix. There are various kinds of pasta and pizza to choose from. But my favorite is pasta is Chicken piccata and favorite pizza is the roasted spinach and artichoke. The servers are always friendly and what I love about CPK is the Pizza dough rewards. There are offers that often compliment the order we put in and often get added savings. They also help out non-profits with fundraisers which is an added bonus. Kapolei location has a different vibe and decor than the other location on Oahu. I love it because it is sleek and modern decor. There is one thing that CPK shine and that is their signature dessert. I actually devour it myself it's the BUTTER CAKE with vanilla ice cream. The cake is comes to you warm with the generous scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of it. But what makes it so good also is the sugar crystals you experience in every bite full. I even come back some times just for dessert. You can't go wrong with CPK because of the various dishes to choose from. Enjoy and get that Butter Cake! More...
I was able to lunch at this location to support Nanakuli High & Intermediate School Performing Arts Center & try CPK's new menu items as well. Their new tomato basil bisque was very tasty. I also tried the shortribs with mac & cheese. The shortribs were very tender & yummy. It was a great meal for a good cause. More...
**NOTE MY RATING IS FOR THE SERVER I HAD. NOT CPK ITSELF** I've been here many many times and didn't even bother to write reviews because how bad the service was. I recently went to have a lunch with my coworkers and was very scared because of my previous visits but our server lilo was extremely kind and great. The most mind blowing thing is that she seemed to be the only server on the floor and was still giving us better service than I had in the past when there were a bunch of servers. Mind you there was about 4-5 other tables. Overall this was one of the greatest customer services I've encountered on my move down here, her genuine kindness reminds me of back home and I will visit again because of her service. More...
California Pizza kitchen is always a go to place when we need to decide a restaurant with the family. We seriously come here too often and we always order the same things lol. Husband orders the Avacado egg rolls and bbq salad.I get either the lettuce wraps, thai crunch salad, or roasted veggie salad. Super delicious!!We can't forget the bread and spinach artichoke dip, talk about a must at the table.For dessert we would get the Butter cake SOOOO GOOOD!!!Now you see why we always come back here.Sign up for the pizza dough rewards you will get free money to use on your bill or free appetizers! More...
I've always been a fan of CPK and was so happy when they came to Kapolei. Fortunately, I never had to wait longer than 15 min for a table and if it's busy then we just make our way to the bar, which normally always has seats open. My favorites here are the Avocado Club Egg Rolls, Spinach Artichoke Dip, BBQ Chicken Salad or BBQ Chicken Pizza. And for dessert the Buttercake with Ice Cream is a must. They have a full bar, with a variety of beers on draft, wine and lots of really good mixed cocktails. All of the drinks I've tried here have always tasted great but I always come back to the Blueberry Smash, which is strong but delicious! Whether it's coming here for a full lunch/dinner or just for some apps/dessert and drinks at the bar, we love this place and have always had the most amazing servers/bartenders. More...
Placing a take out order can't be simpler. I called in at 11:02 while I was still up in Makakilo and it was ready when I arrived 15 minutes later. Quick and helpful service.
We came in on a Sunday afternoon right before lunch. We did not have to wait too long, and received a text when our table was ready. Our server Skyler was very friendly. It took over 30 minutes for our entrees to come out, with our kids entree coming out about 15 minutes before ours. When are entrees did come out, my husband's pasta was lukewarm and flavorful, but I'm sure it would have tasted much better if it was warmer. More...
My favorite is the Wild Mushroom Strozzapreti with Steak and I love the Thai Crunch Salad! Onolicious!
So far so good. Good service, good food, good environment. I will be coming back for more food! I love the chicken piccata!! Staff is friendly.
I stopped by CPK while strolling the mall with my little one. I checked in for a table and they informed me that they'd send a text once my table was ready. Wait time was approximately 20mins (not too bad for a Saturday) so I shopped the mall until they texted me 15 mins later letting me know it was time to be seated. Once in, I ordered the Kids pizza (trust me it's filling enough for an adult). I ordered a pepperoni, sausage, with extra cheese pizza. The wait time for the pizza was sort of long in my opinion but I'm willing to wait for hot fresh food. To my dismay they brought out a mushroom pizza The manager delivered if the table and he offered to allow me to snack on that pizza while he made my correct pizza unfortunately I do not like mushrooms so I had to sit there and admire other people's food. I waited another 10 or so minutes for my fresh pizza to come out and it was really delicious and hot.For dessert I ordered the salted caramel pudding it was super tasty and bigger in person than the picture they show in the menu. Overall the experience was OK and the food was good. I just expected my pizza to come out correctly the first time.P.S. Every time I come, the GM (I'm assuming the guy in the aloha print shirt is the manager) is so helpful and always staying busy helping his team. From delivering dishes to sweeping up a mess, he does it all. More...

CPK is my favorite. We dined here the other night for my daughter's birthday there were twelve of us total. We hardly got to see our waitress we would always flag down other waitresses when we needed something. Not sure if they were short-staffed at the time especially for a party of 12 I would think you would need two servers. Anyway have been dining at CPK for over 10 years now I do notice that the servings are a lot smaller they make it look better in different bowls now instead of plates yes. The cook kept getting the barbecue sauce mixed up with hoisin sauce for our salad happen three times total. We are not too happy about that. The third time we bought it to the manager's attention but there was no apology from her. All in all the food was good More...
This is located across from Cheesecake Factory in the Ka Makana Ali'i Mall. There is plenty of parking, but it gets pretty packed. Came here on a Saturday afternoon. It was pretty busy but my party of two got seated right away. The server was very nice and was great at making sure our beverages were refilled throughout the meal.We ordered the White corn guacamole + chips it actually had a lot of flavor and was served on a chilled plate. It cost around $5 and it was an ice scoop size. Also ordered the tortilla spring rolls: Thai chicken and Mediterranean veggie. It came with 3 of each flavor cut in half with Thai peanut sauce and marinara sauce. Probably wasn't my favorite appetizer but it was okay. Also ordered the garlic cream fettuccine with sautéed Cremona mushrooms. Pretty good, I feel like it should have more sauce. Over all the food was good, nothing out of the ordinary. More...
Waited 40 mins to be seated. Then another 50 mins for our meal. The wait was worth it my Jumbalaya was as always wonderful and my husband had the chicken picatta which he enjoyed as well.
We all know that when there is a new location that opens up, there is bound to have a downfall somewhere in your experience. But tbh when we came here on a Friday Night, it was actually the best idea evarrr! We were originally suppose to go to cheesecake factory here at ka makana but because they just opened and everyone and their mama wanted to eat there, the hour was a 2-3 hour wait. So my sister in law just put our name down at cpk just incase because they wouldn't even give us a buzzer at cheesecake. We cancelled our reservations a cheesecake because cpk was ready to seat us in no time. the wait wasn't that long (hence the fact that we were coming all the way from kalihi, lol) I wish I remembered what our servers name was, because honestly she was the best server I have ever had in my entire life. When she talked to you, she had made sure she made direct eye contact with you, and that she had her full attention on you, nothing else to distract her. She listened and answered all our questions and also put in her advice on what she liked. She kept all our drinks topped off, kept the bread coming, and made sure our orders came out at a steady pace as well. Their lettuce wraps and avocado rolls (I think that's what its called) appetizer is the freakinggg bommbbbbb ! I literally want to go back to cpk just to eat that. Lol. I had the club pizza had that was so ono I couldn't even finish it all, back then they used to call it the BLT pizza. But now they just add avocado to it, which isn't all that bad either. But the real winner of the night was the dessert! lol I forget what that was called to. Its that butter cake one I think That was yummy too. My bf didn't even want to share it a first, I had to fight for the plate. It is really rich so make sure you share it. But overall the location is nice and big, very fancy to me rather than the other locations. More...
Giving them a 4 out of 5 stars because of the wait time. It was over an hour wait. We to this location for my sister in laws birthday dinner so we had no choice but to wait haha. My husband doesn't like waiting over an hour for a place to eat but since it was his sister's birthday he just sucked it up hahaha. Other than that, my pizza was alright. Should've got the chicken piccata instead. Oh wells. The service was good, our drinks were always refilled and food came out in a decent amount of time and all correct orders. I was feeling sick that night as well and the lovely waitress there was helpful and expressed her empathy. Fyi, it's real busy right now with cheesecake factory and Sura now open. People probably can't wait 3 hours to dine at cheesecake factory and decides to head over across the street so it might be more busy than usual. More...
Had lunch yesterday and ordered spaghetti/ cauliflower/ BBQ pizza and salad . It was all good ! The best thing was our waitress Kuulei / we told her we had to leave by a certain time because we had to make it to our flight at airport . She got our food and boxes in case we had to hurry and leave . Got our bill taken care of and we never had to wait . Awesome ! More...
We usually come here during the weekend for lunch shortly after they open for the day and sit at the bar. Everything is always solid, from food to the service. I've never had a bad experience or a bad dish. My top go-to restaurant at Ka Makana Ali'i. More...
You don't have to wait to long for your order, service is good!
Too long of a wait for Cheesecake Factory so we went next door to CPK. Much better choice. Got seated in 5 minutes! Great tasting food, excellent service.
CPK has always been hit-or-miss as I've been to the Ala Moana and Pearlridge locations. There's a total of 5 on Oahu (Hawaii Kai and Mililani as well) with 2 more opening in the neighbor islands in the future (Kauai and Maui). But I can honestly say that CPK Kapolei was a hit in my book! This new venue is located across the new Cheesecake Factory at Ka Makana Ali'i (KMA). Parking can be accessed through the mall parking lot - I prefer parking on the movie theater side as those lots are usually available. Be careful parking in lots that have blue dots as those are for workers at KMA.The GOOD: Compared to other CPK's (except Mililani), this CPK has a nice outdoor area - they use this area for Paint Nite. Be wary of the weather though because it can be quite chilly if the wind is blasting in this area. The drinks are tasty too - the bar is spacious and would recommend the Moscow Mule and Honey Bee Sangria! The BAD (Not Really): I don't have much negative things to say about this place as the wait wasn't bad at all. Probably the only uncomfortable part was the wait as there was a moment when the food took awhile for our large party of 16. But our waiter was patient and accommodated us well (Shoutout to Tito)! The BEAUTIFUL: The food was SICKNING! The spicy buffalo cauliflower is a must-get! If you're wanting to save room for your entree, I would recommend the white corn guacamole + chips or the spinach artichoke dip! Our friend got the Thai crunch salad and I'm sad that I didn't get it - it was that good! The fire-grilled ribeye was good - take note that you can replace the arugula salad with Mac salad. I also got the shrimp scampi zucchini, which tasted perfect (good amount of shrimp) and wasn't heavy because of the zucchini noodles (it's mixed in with regular noodles as well). I avoided the pizzas as I wanted to get dessert too - YOU MUST TRY THE BUTTER CAKE!!! It's a mix of butter, whip cream, cheesecake and vanilla ice cream. I definitely have a different view of CPK after going to this one. The interior is classy and the workers marched the interior - classy as well. Just a tip - lunch doesn't get as chaotic as well as weekday evenings. More...

Its a fresh new OPEN CONCEPT INSIDE AND OUTSIDE Food was great, and delivered fast to our table waitress was on it....all of CPK should have a building of thier own WE SO IN JOYED THIS NEW PLACE KAPOLEI SHOPPING CENTER
Had a mishap with a take out order that I placed through their App. Placed my order at 8:10pm and expected pick up time for 8:45pm, giving ample time for my order to be made and ready to be picked up. Arrived on time but my order wasn't ready. I had to wait 15min for my order. The employee listed my order while handing the bag to me so I expected my order to be right. Got home and found out an item was missing. I called the restaurant frustrated that I had to go back cuz at that point I'm super hangry. David, who was manager at the time handled the situation very well, the way a manager should. Any ways... They're human. I'm human. People make mistakes. I really enjoy their food but I'll probably stick to dining at the bar... More...
Good food and great service. The servings was in large amounts that I liked.
Went here recently with my wife for some holiday (mothers day?). Im not usually a fan of CPK, but this one in Kapolei was not my usual experience. I had a good time and the food was great. Definitely going here again! More...
I love this CPK! Truth be told, CPK is my favorite chain in the world and if my life were to turn into groundhog day this would hopefully be the place where I'd live out the rest of my eternal existence. I love the gorgeous new modern design with the same solid menu I've enjoyed for almost twenty years.Pizza? Check! Pasta? Check! Salad that doesn't make me feel sad and empty like regular salad? DOUBLE CHECK!Wine & cocktails? Check!Service was solid and food was as expected. CPK is one of the few places on the West side where I can get a cocktail with a girlfriend and it was perfect for a weeknight catch-up dinner with my bestie! More...
The server with the purple hair didn't get her name but she was fast and very friendly! She always made sure our drinks were filled. Thanks for the great servie!
Always a great experience coming to Kapolei's cpk. Service is on point, food is amazing and we enjoy it every time we come out.
Our server was really on point! Great service & Good food.
A great location for this reputable pizza chain. I would recommend coming here after my over 30 visits to this particular venue. PROS: Always clean and fast service. Food always come out in an excellent presentation. Additionally, the orders are never wrong regardless of what menu item you order. Place is always clean and staff is always courteous. The drink menu is very broad and extensive. Prices are a little high but your eating at a brand new restaurant in a brand new mall in Hawaii, so I guess that's to be expected. CONS: Due to lack of sit down eating options in the area, this place can be crowded quick and there isn't enough staff at times to handle the rush. Even when you can clearly see multiple empty tables, the staff can't seat you because they can't accommodate you. Hopefully the staff can grow now that it's been here for almost a year. More...
I've been here quite a few times, and it has always been excellent service. The waitresses are very friendly and give really good recommendations. I'm not a big fan of the bread and olive oil dipping sauce, but it's a light snack before ordering appetizers. The pastas are delicious, but the plates are HUGE. It takes up a lot of room on the table. I highly recommend the Wild Mushroom Strozzapreti pasta if you love mushrooms! The ambience is nice, and the wait time is not too bad. I try to go before the dinner rush, so I can be seated within 20 minutes. Next time I come here, I will try out the pizzas (I always get full off the pasta dish) instead! More...
This is one of the newer and probably newest CPKs on the island. It is located at the front area of the new Ka Makana Ali'i shopping center mall. It is kinda interesting because they are about to get some huge competition with Cheesecake Factory right in front of it when it opens. Anyways, it is also located in front of the movie theatres. It is in a pretty good location because the restaurant makes for a great dinner and a movie kind of setting. In regards to the food, I like it. The artichoke and spinach dip is always winners. It is kinda interesting that I usually go here more for the pasta versus the Pizza and it is funny because they are called California Pizza Kitchen. However, the pizzas are all also very good. They have a pretty good drink selection as well. In regards to dessert, I like the parfait and brulee. Any of them are pretty good. If you come during the weekends, you can expect for a few minutes wait time. If you are waiting outside, they have a pitcher of water for you to drink which is awesome. The restaurant itself is pretty spacious and stuff. It has TVs and a bar and good amount of table and seating areas. The staff and customer service is good overall I would say. Usually the front parking lot areas near the restaurant fills up pretty quickly. More...
Excellent service! Our host Kosuke was super warm and welcoming, and predicted the wait time perfectly which was much appreciated! Our server Cerene was amazing and paced our meal perfectly. Drinks were strong and food was delicious as always. More...

Loved it !!! It was my first time and our waitress Stephanie was awesome. Only problem was were on vacation and there isn't one within 200 miles of us back home in Northwest Arkansas. It's a must stop on our next trip to Hawaii. More...
The food was the typical CPK menu but the service is above and beyond. My server Amy made suggestions for my son's meal that he understood. And when he was bored Amy gave him some pizza dough to play with as a play doh. Pat the manager was busy being the host, server, and busboy. So someone is always there for you. I got the wild mushroom pasta with shrimp and it was ooh so ono. Say that 10 times fast. It does get busy since you are in a mall, but worth the wait. More...
It's A M.
The service was awesome! Although it would take awhile for our food to come out the service was excellent, I wish I could remember our servers name. We stayed inside CPK for at least 2 hours cause the wait for our food was kinda long but me and my date didn't really mind since we used that time to talk. If you want good service and don't mind the time it takes to get your food then eat here. More...
Excellent service! Was waiting a bit for my Caeser salad, and when I reminded an employee they wasted no time retrieving my salad. The food was delicious, the shrimp was packed with flavor and the dressing on the lettuce was wonderful. Didi was a wonderful waitress, she provided wonderful service and had great communication skills. She sung "Happy Birthday," to my friend Ashanti, and overall made our night a whole lot better. I hope Didi is your waitress when you visit! More...
What can I say? LOVE LOVE LOOOVE THIS LOCATION! Me and my other half come here a lot and every server we get they are each helpful and provide excellent service! The food may take a little while to wait but it is so worth it. And the fact that it is so close to home just makes this location even more my favorite. I will never go to any other location than this one. I love you all and thank you for the great service and hospitality you all give :) More...
Although the wait time was 50 minutes, it's to be expected considering it was a Friday night. The food came out quickly and tasted great. But the best part was our server, Skyler. She is exceptional. She quickly refilled our drinks even before we were halfway done with the first one. She consistently checked on us. She's so cheerful. She's the face of outstanding customer service. More...
This time we had a good experience. The last time was not so good. They are improving there quality of food.
The food was great and the service was even better..!!
My new favorite place to eat in Kapolei is at CPK Ka Makana Ali'i. Everything was perfect. Quick service. Friendly staff. Yummy food. In fact... the Wild Mushroom Pizza and Sangria was so good, I had both on Saturday and Sunday � ��#sweepstakes #newcpk More...
Stopped in for lunch before taking in a movie next store at the Consolidated Olino Theatre. Convenient location but nearby parking was limited due to theatre patrons. Service was excellent from the time we walked through the doors until we left. Dining area was much more spacious than the Pearlridge location. Food was excellent and being able to use my CPK rewards for free dessert and a reduction in my overall bill was definitely a plus. More...
Our server Danielle was amazing! She was super friendly and gave us excellent costumer service. It's been a while since we've eaten out and I'm glad we came to CPK tonight. Thank you so much Danielle!
Started our night at another establishment and after waiting 20min w/no service...we walked out and left. Drove straight to CPK and waited 5-10min for a table. It was smooth sailing from there. Excellent, prompt service and the food was sooo ono. What started out as a bad night ruined by the other establishment turned into a nice meal thanks to CPK! More...
Before CPK opened at Ka Makana Alii we would drive to the Pearlridge location for their lettuce wraps, chicken egg rolls, and BBQ pizza.Having a location at the mall is so convenient and it's easy to enjoy one of our favorite lunch/dinner spots more regularly.As with any CPK the food and service is excellent, great portions at a great price however, a majority of the time you'll have a 20-30 minute wait. Because it's so busy the service time for orders can be long but with bread at the table I don't mind the wait. Rated an overall four stars because there is a wide menu variety, kēiki friendly options, and again the appetizers are ono! If you're at the mall I recommend checking in early because there will most likely be a wait and to visit or shop at the nearby stores during that time. More...
I love going to this location because it's close to home, and not much of a wait like the other location. We always get sat promptly and the service is always great. Our favorite server has to be Cheyna because she is always quick and gets us whatever we need.The layout of the restaurant is pretty open and there is a lot of space to move around without bumping into another customer. Food is always great, no complaints on the way it taste. I always leave full even though I only get a salad and pizza.Soon Cheesecake factory will be opening and they will definitely be major competition, but I will still continue to come here because it's still one of my favorite restaurants. More...
Had the best sandwich one day and the next week it tasted completely different and was very disappointing..my waiter was amazing both times,but I'm going to stick to my usual pizza and avocado rolls .
Opened since October 2016, this new CPK addition to Oahu is really nice. The restaurant itself is spacious and beautifully decorated; it still has that new feeling. I honestly believe it's gonna be in a hot spot with all the new shopping places still coming up! Our waiter was very kind, no complaints there. In terms of food, I ordered a shrimp scampi zucchini (one of their popular items). While it was really tasty, the price of 16.99 for the small portion I got was not worth it. For that price I wish there was more food and more flavors. My mother ordered their lemongrass chicken (available for a limited time), and it tasted delicious. The chicken was doused in teriyaki sauce on a bed of brown rice, mushroom and lemongrass. Very healthy and very tasty (I may be bias because I love teriyaki sauce). More...
I read several reviews here and the take away is always subjective. So, here is my subjective review. I've been to most if not all of the cpk locations so, obviously, I've been somewhat satisfied on each visit. My recent visit to this location was indeed very satisfying. Great service and had a salad instead of pizza this time and was extremely impressed. The kale salad mixture, don't recall the name off hand. Delicious! I've been wanting to return for more. Obviously, a five star review can turn to a one star if anyone encounters terrible service, but it was not the case this day for us. Excellent service and left over full and very satisfied. Good job cpk! More...
CPK just as good as anyone I ever been to, nice environment, big dining area, large TVs at bar
Chill environment. The food and drinks were great and the staff at the bar was amazing. The GM visited with us to get our feedback in realtime and in person. It exhibited care for their patrons and the desire to improve. Service was quick considering the busy night. Cleanliness and high standard of the bar staff is commendable. Thank you for a great time!! More...
Me and my boyfriend really enjoyed are time here yesterday. Our waitress sky was very friendly and great with her customer service. We came during busy hours but she made sure that this experience was a great one! More...
Thank you again Alfred for inviting us back to your store for a better eating & service experience, I really appreciate that so much! The service was very nice & our server Brit was so wonderful, we will definitely be coming back here again! It's so true California Pizza Kitchen really takes care of their customers!! More...
I've heard great things about California Pizza Kitchen and coming in and sitting down and actually eating the food did not live up to the hype. The waitstaff was great and friendly and the service was excellent. The Strawberry Mango Cooler was excellent and I'd order it again and again. The Spinach + Shaved mushroom flatbread left something to be desired... it had decent flavor but there were several pieces of the flatbread that were plan and crisp, lacking any mushrooms, cheese, or spinach. Where my disappointment came was the Crispy Mac 'N' Cheese. In the menu description the "Crispy Mac 'N' Cheese" was described their "classic mac 'n' cheese lightly fried with panko, served over creamy cheese sauce". However the Crispy Mac 'N' Cheese I was served was extremely hard and difficult to bite into and hardly had any flavor. I don't know if that's how it usually made but personally I didn't enjoy it. The Butter Cake is a totally different story, it's moist and excellent has such subtle flavor that works so well with the vanilla ice cream on top. This Butter Cake was so good that I might just have to come back for more. More...
The latest edition to the CPK chain in Oahu... this location is in the Kamakana Ali'i center in Ewa or newbies call it Kapolei... and the joint is on the O'lino or Ewa end of the center.This place is great... an up grade from the other CPKs with a larger bar area and bigger wide screen tvs to view... the seating is very open and airy and doesn't give a cluttered feeling like some of the other locations feel like... a great place for groups to come and eat... they even have dedicated stalls and counter for take out orders... The goods...This was a lunch visit and we just ordered a couple things...First came complimentary sour dough bread with olive oil... delish but didn't want to get full on the bread...1) Thai Chicken Salad... kinda huge for one person and didn't seem to have as much greens as a salad would have but that wasn't a problem... was more of a blessing for our bellies...2) Pepperoni, Sausage, Mushroom Pizza... my fav lunch to have at CPK... done well and with freshly grated parmesan cheese on top... was easy to finish!Service... was good for a busy lunch hour and our server was at the top of her game... kept us hydrated and checked in more than we thought she should being we weren't the only ones she was serving and we already said everything was good! We will return when in the area as this is my favorite CPK out of all the others on this island! Till next time, Grind On! Pau! More...
For a Saturday...we were seated pretty fast. We got a booth next to the window...which is a huge plus for us.Our server didn't look to happy and she didn't greet us with a smile. Which is a negative for us. She took our drink orders and left us be to ponder on the menu.We got appetizers to share...chicken lettuce wraps & mushroom spinach flatbread. The appetizers came pretty fast along with their ever so famous baguettes with olive oil. Loved every bite of it.Then another server came to introduce herself. She replaced the first girl cause she didn't feel well & she had been sent home. The second server often check on us. The 3rd time she came to check on us, she hands us a dessert menu. We told her we've been waiting for our entreès and i
