Everything on the menu is delicious but my favorite is the Shepard pie. I have tried the Kobe burger and although a little pricey it is very good. The cheesecake is not to be missed.

Love to come to the Cheesecake Factory at the Irvine Spectrum for a girls lunch. It's the perfect place to have a great lunch, indulge in a sinfully good dessert and have a martini. The price is a little on the high side for lunch, but usually there's enough food to take home for dinner too.

Food is good. That is why you have to remember to save room for desert. Otherwise, you will miss the most important task when visiting this restaurant - eating one or more slices of cheese cakes :-).

Selection of food and amazing cheese cake make us come back. Jambalaya had little too much of tomatoes but seasoned good and tasty. Diane's steaks were good but sauce was little too sweet for my taste. Evelyn's favorite pasta was tasty but had too much pasta.i guess it would have been perfect if I were vegetarian. Key lime cheese cake... More

As previously stated by other reviews, this is a chain restaurant. Basically, if you've been to one, you've been to all. I agree that the set up and decor are the same and the menu items are the same. But I disagree that every Cheesecake Factory is the "same". I walked into this particular location planning to dislike it. Why?... More

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
