The atmosphere was very open and casual. The gluten-free pizzas are given on a separate menu, and they are delicious! The mango iced tea is also really good by the way.
Great experience for a celiac diner. Dedicated area for gluten free pizzas and separate ingredients just used for GF pizzas. The staff were very friendly and clearly explained their procedures for preventing cross-contamination to me when I asked. The manager brought my meal out personally. Their GF pizza area and ingredients are certified by the Gluten Intolerance Group, which is also noted on their GF menu. Not a huge selection of GF pizzas or the best GF crust I've ever had but a safe/easy dining experience definitely makes up for that!
I didn't find the pizza good at all, they had a really hard time accommodating me because they only have cheese GF pizza and I had to ask them to add some toppings and they told me they won't guarantee that there is not cross contamination, they also took for ever to cook it, my friend had finished eating when I got my pizza because they were having such a hard time making it, the pizza crust was chewy and grainy. Won't be back.
Good selection on GF Options including several pizza options. This time I had the GF Waldorf Chicken salad full size was huge and delicious! I've had GF pizza in the past which is also a good choice.
They have 4 pizza options that are completely gluten-free along with a few other gluten free menu items. The staff was very happy to adjust the pizza to my liking and satisfaction is guaranteed. They told me if I did not like the one I chose, they would make me one of the other options for free. I have the Mushroom Pepperoni Sausage pizza without mushrooms and it was the best GF pizza I have ever had! 100% recommend them 😍
4/2017 Yummy crust--they offer a couple GF entrees and pizza. They have several certified GF (crust and ingredients--ask for a separate menu) and can do any pizza GF but can't guarantee due to potential cross-contamination. Waiter was knowledgeable and super nice. Not bad for a pizza place.
Absolutely love that they have a dedicated section of their kitchen for the gf pizza. It's nice not having to worrying about getting sick but it's a huge bummer to have to watch your dinning companions eat appetizers and dessert when you can't because they don't offer any gf versions. I don't understand with a certified gf kitchen how you don't have even 1 appetizer or dessert (sorry a kid's sundae does not count for me) for your gf patrons. Hope this changes in the future.
I watched their staff make my pizza and when they prepared to bring it out to me They carried it unboxed passed the regular pizza crust says they were being tossed in the air. in fact boxing of all pizzas gluten-free or not happen in this area being exposed to flour in the air. While they don't claim to be a gluten-free facility this was particularly careless. I've been in there three times and gotten sick all three times they are not Celiac's friendly. I tried pointing this out to the manager but he didn't seem to care and just looked at me and said "that's how we do things". I would say skip California Pizza Kitchen and just go to Wasatch Pizza instead
I didn't get sick, but our waitress could of cared less. I asked for an allergen menu and she said the didn't have one...what? I have had the best pizza ever in DC at CPK-GF, disappointed in the crust at this location. it was chewy and way undercooked. I won't go back
The pizza is amazing! There are 4 pizza options that are certified gluten free. We go often and I have never had any issue. The Margarita pizza is my favorite!
I was skeptical to eat here, but my kids wanted pizza so I thought I'd just check it out. I asked the host, who took a few minutes to even show up in the middle of lunch hour, if they had GF options. He said yes and gave me their GF menu. Only 4 different pizza options, but it sounded good, so we sat down. Server was super slow getting to us, but apologized for the delay. I asked if they used separate utensils for serving the pizza and she said yes, she even washes her hands before bringing it out. Sounds good, so I ordered the margarita pizza. 10-15 minutes later she came out and notified me that they didn't have any more GF crusts. I wouldn't have even sat down had I known that. Super disappointed and hungry. I will not be returning. They did give me a discount though.
The gf pizza is grainy and bland. However, the worst part is that, even though they assured me they take very careful precautions, I have been violently ill for days. My body is rejecting everything since I ate there, even fresh fruit which usually calms my system down. Maybe it's okay for people who are slightly intolerant, but it is clearly not celiac safe. I will not be dining there again.
Short list, I think 4 pizzas, that are assured GF, which was very re-assuring. The waiter was knowledgeable, helpful and friendly, fulfilling all of our requests for GF info on ingredients and processes. Our table had both GF and Non-GF eaters and special care was given to the GF food. I ate well, enjoyed the outside balcony table and had no ill effects. Will definitely eat there again.
RUN RUN RUN I ordered a GF pizza to go. I told the manager how sensitive I was and she assured me they would be very careful. When the pizza came out of the oven I saw the man making regular pizza keep the same gloves on and take his hand and proceed to put it in the oregano container and then sprinkle it all over my GF pizza. When the manager brought the pizza to me I asked her about it and she clearly understood the error and apologized. No pizza for me!!!
GF pizzas were very good.
