Be prepared to wait for a bit

We went on a Saturday night the the lady told us the wait will be about 20 minutes. We waited for 30 minutes and finally got in. The server provided some bread and butter and took our order then we waited for another 30 minutes to get our food, and then at the end we ordered a cheesecake to go... read more

Pretty standard. Not sure the server knew what she was doing. 'Forgot' things a lot. She was nice but I don't think she was all there. Food was pretty standard. Make sure you check your bill when you go. We asked for the bill, which I think she forgot to give us for a long time. When we got the... More

This is s very clean place to eat and you know what you are getting. This chain is established and you can get an average meal It is conveniently located in the Spectrum which is an outdoor mall so it is a good place to get a cocktail while others shop. I would go back if in the area

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

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.
