Great pizza manages to outweigh bad service.
This was my first time to CPK after hearing many rave reviews. While the food definitely lived up to the hype, I wished that I'd been warned about the slow service. It took far too long in between each visit from the waiter, from drinks to appetizers to entrees. Besides this disappointing aspect, everything else was great. The yummy lettuce wraps and unique martinis were both great, and the grilled chicken and onion pizza I had to top it off was better than any I'd tried before. Not to mention, I could've stayed cozy on their heated patio all night.
