We love the Cheesecake Factory and visited during our trip to LA. This restaurant is very busy indeed, we felt that the food was average, very much like a fast food chain restaurant, it was also very noisy with lots of families. The cheesecake however was amazing, we had one chocolate portion and a carrot cake, both a la mode!... More

We visited the cheesecake factory when we were staying at the Marriott Marina Del Rey which is straight across the road. The location of the restaurant is great being on the marina and the food is wow yummy, pizzas were great and the cheesecakes are the best.

I had many people ranting that is the best place ever, I could not find anything to rant about, may be it was just timing but food was ok, the desserts was what looked good, I thought it would have been better, service was ok, no water given either

I insist on going to this place because I want to find out what drives people there. Still I don't find a strong reason to go again. Maybe just to order Cheesecake to go. We ordered a roll of avocado, Sun-Dried Tomato, Red Onion and Cilantro Fried in a Crisp Wrapper. Served with a Tamarind-Cashew Dipping Sauce. It really sounded... More

Very popular with families. Cheesecake is the centre of the business but we chose to take a slice home because after pizza and salad there was no room. On the menu beside pizza is a range of pasta dishes appetizers and salads all come in generous proportions. There are catering options for large groups. It was good value.

Large restaurant. Extremely popular and busy. We were lucky to be seated immediately. The food and service were very good. The waitress was efficient and friendly. It was reasonably priced. We would recommend.

Outdoor seating takes the edge off the inside noise of this hyper busy place. Large portions, consistent, but the gem is outdoors for lunch or long relaxed dinner with the sand and water right there. If you are still eating dairy, the cheesecake is still as good as it ever was.
