DON'T GO TO CPK.
Food was average. The waitress made 2 mistakes--she forgot to get more dressing that we asked for, and she had only one scoop of ice cream on the fudge brownie instead of two that we asked for. When the bill came, it was at least 1/3 more than we expected, and she said they WERE NOT ALLOWED to clarify the prices beforehand! Talk about a rip-off!!! NEVER GOING THERE AGAIN.
Watch your pie bake in a wood-fired oven at this national chain with global culinary influences.. In Short Founded in Beverly Hills in 1985, these eateries with the trademark yellow, black and white color scheme have spread nationwide. The decor consists of simple wood and glass with roomy black leather booths. The thin-crust pizzas come with innovative toppings from Asia, Latin America and the Southwest; signature pizzas like the Original BBQ Chicken and Jamaican Jerk Chicken compete with old standbys like pepperoni and traditional cheese. Pastas, salads, soups and sandwiches round out the menu.
Decent food but WORST customer service & manager.
Food at CPK is normally good however one bad experience can make people think twice about going back. Here's my plight and complaint...After my wife gave birth at a nearby hospital, she ordered BBQ chopped salad take-out from the Laguna Hills CPK as a treat from the typically bad hospital food. I picked up the food and delivered the food to my wife. As she finishes half her salad and a piece of bread, she notices that the remaining pieces of bread had black/green stuff in the middle of all the pieces of bread. After closer examination, it turns out to be MOLD...with disgust and a lost appetite, I called the restaurant back to complain. The night shift manager asked that I bring the bread back to the restaurant the next day and the manager at that time will take care of the situation. That's when it all went to HELL!!!
I brought the samples back to the manager, David Bonilla, the next day and all he could say was thanks for bringing the samples back and he will send it to the bread company. I waited for some kind of sincere apology with a reparation of some sort like a refund of the meal or complimetary dish on your next visit. None of that sort. He said the bread was free so he can offer me some more free bread if i'd like. In other words, he didn't feel that consumer eating moldy bread from his restaurant was not an incident big enough for a gesture of that sort. I said a customer can have a bad experience at your restaurant & get their meal comped but having my wife eat moldy bread from your restaurant wasn't good enough. I was so appalled & upset at the situation. On top of that, I asked for the corporate office to file a complaint and he antogonized me even more to go ahead & call & see if anything happens. This whole experience was unbelievable & certainly unacceptable. I thought managers are trained to diffuse these situations but apparently not. He didn't even obtain information or write down some incident report for further investigation.
