This was such a sad salad. The Chinese Chicken Salad at the Cheese cake Factory. I was even more shocked when I walked in to the Verizon store and the clerk upon seeing my bag told me she had their Chinese Chicken salad and it didn't have any chicken on it. I laughed and told her I understood. It is... More

We went to the Cheese Cake Factory one night for dinner and found the place to be packed as we waited for 40 minutes for a table. The prices were in line, the food was good. We did have one mistake on a salad where we ordered two of the same and one with dressing on the side. They brought... More

I have always been a fan, so tonight may well be an exception, but it nonetheless was noticeably substandard enough to prompt this review. Everything was good, especially my Louisiana Chicken pasta. My son had the burger with sweet potato fries. The burger was satisfying but the fries seemed salty. We informed the waitress (who was teamed up with another... More

This Cheesecake Factory is in a humongous entertainment complex in Irvine where it is common for people to spend quite a lot of time: attending a movie, shopping and/or dining. Every establishment is “trending” over there; if not, it won’t last long. I’ve seen lots of change over the years. Also, it’s a fantastic people-watching locale. I go here for... More

Not a place of choice, if the rest of the group I am with wants to go there then I will go. The menu is large, each dish loaded with thousands of calories. They do have lighter items too, but they are average, like the grilled tuna salad.

Always a good experience at the Cheesecake Factory, staff is always extremely friendly and outgoing. Good menu, pretty reasonably priced and lots to chose from. I always have to try and be good here because it's so easy to splurge on their massive dessert menu. Overall, it's a fun restaurant a great for groups. Definitely busy on the weekends so... More

This place does not need much to talk about, the food is great, the service is nice, and good portions, I love to request the plum dressing to dip my bread in. and of course, the chinese chicken salad is my fav.

We brought our 18 month old daughter with us for an early dinner at Cheesecake Factory. The service was great. We got there around 4p and were seated right away. They were really attentive to my daughter and made sure she was comfortable. A little pricey but worth it. We took leftovers home and a piece of cheesecake to enjoy... More

This Cheesecake factory is in the heart of Irvine Spectrum right in front of the valet parking service. It is a great restaurant and the ambiance is great. The food prices are reasonable for the location, and they have a great variety of foods on the menu. Service is great and timely. We have been going there for the past... More

Our family had lunch at The Cheese Cake Factory on Memorial Day. The spectrum was pretty crowded but surprisingly we got seated within 10 minutes. I guess it was because we chose to sit in the patio rather than inside. It was a lovely day and as usual the restaurant was crowded but the service was great. The server was... More
