Not sure what the previous negative reviews are complaining about - in my experience so far, having multiple options that are prepared separately from the rest of the food is a rarity, especially in pizza restaurants. Yeah, 4 or 5 options isn't ideal, but being able to easily order and know that your food will be safe is fantastic. The waiter was also very knowledgeable, and explained that they wash all of the gluten-free-area containers separately, and everyone changes gloves/washes hands, etc. when they enter the gluten free area. This is one of the best processes I've seen in a chain restaurant. Plus, the food was awesome. I shared the waldorf chicken salad (labeled gluten-free on the menu, but not one of the GiG certified items) and the gluten free margherita pizza, and both were delicious. Definitely the best gluten free pizza I've had since my celiac diagnosis a few months ago. The only reason I might dock a star would be the price (just a pricier restaurant in general), but I think they deserve higher than a 3-star overall rating, so I'm giving it 5. I am always impressed with and appreciative of restaurants that go out of their way to make things safe, especially when the staff is friendly and knowledgeable about it, too.
what a load of crap lots of options. LOL There are literally 4 pizzas to choose from that are "certified" gf. But let's face it, if they are making other pizza, handling flour in the same place, nothing can be "certified" GF. That being said, you can choose from a salad or pizza made with non gluten ingredients. My question is why you do people lie on the reviews? Are you somehow invested in the restaurant? Or have you been living in a world where having 4 options is a large selection/lots of options? puhhhhhleeeze All of that noted, the pizza is tasty. The crust is very good. The Pepperoni tasty. The sausage spicy. My boyfriend said his BBQ chicken pizza is very good. A little stingy on the mozzarella, but, not a bad pizza for a decent price (a gf pizza). Will I come back? Probably not. But I am leaving satisfied.
CPK offers a indicators for all GF items on their menu along with pizzas certified to be gluten free by the Gluten Intolerance Group (GiG). I have been here multiple times and have not gotten sick due to cross contamination. I am diagnosed celiac.
New GF menu, lots of options, great crust.
This is only a good option if you want to eat a salad while everyone around you enjoys pizza and pasta. Gluten free items are clearly marked but are few.
While they stopped serving pizza they do still have other options available. Click on the menu link below and it lists them.
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.
If you are going for pizza I am sure it's celiac friendly. Otherwise there s NOTHING else on the menu for a celiac- even salads as all the ingredients are pre-prepped. Last time I was at this restaurant in Waikiki I was able to eat their salads but obviously the chain has gone toward the fast food end of the market and there is no room for adapting fir celiacs. In fairness the server knew to warn me and that is a plus!
Has very limited selection. Left without eating since staff is not educated about cross contamination. My server served bread to another table and with the same hand put down my plate. When confronted manager was amazing but waitress simply couldn't understand the error.
Gluten free pizza is great and celiac safe! However, very limited gluten free options other than pizza.
Awesome gluten free pizza. They offer pizzas made in a dedicated facility or can be made on the spot. Pizza always brought out by manager who is not handling food. They make a very good effort and I've never had a problem despite being very sensitive
