My wife's favorite place

Great food. ..you can't go wrong here the food and service is amazing. Great environment and a walk at the spectrum afterwards to buy the little lady a gift. Maybe catch a movie or a laugh at the improv.

We've never been to a Cheesecake Factory that we didn't enjoy. We were just in the one at the Forum Shops in Las Vegas. It's always consistently good. We go to the Cheesecake Factory in The Spectrum often since that's basically in our "backyard" but we know that no matter what area we're in if we dine there it'll be... More

We met friends here for lunch because it was convenient, but it turned out to be an excellent choice. First of all, if the weather is nice enough, be sure to sit outside. They have a lovely patio. We were seated promptly, even without reservations, and our server was quick to acknowledge us. The menu has so much variety that... More

Normal wait time to sit on a weekend evening, ordered and appetizer arrived after 30 minutes with no utensils. Asked 3 servers and 2 waiters, our waitress was no where to be found, to get utensils but nothing! Got up to get them ourselves from the server station 10 feet away and was told rudely to sit down and they... More

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
