Great lunch!

We tried 3 different lunch items plus 2 from the children's menu. All were delicious, and we brought some of the food home. Our waiter was wonderfully patient and attentive. We sat at a table overlooking a playground so the kids could go back and forth.

Second visit to The Cheesecake Factory, Marina Del Rey. Again excellent service and food. Arrived about 7pm on a Saturday, was rammed. Was informed there was a 20-25 minute wait so we had a quick walk of the marina... five minutes later the buzzer went and was sat down. Not bad at all as it was busy. Service was a... More

Portions are big and tasty, we had to try the cheesecake but we took it to go and that was a great... More

The food was lovely. The staff were friendly and the cheesecake was to die for. My only criticism would be that the ladies toilets are disgusting.

This place doesn't take bookings and is VERY busy, so be warned. We left the first time we tried, but came back the next night. The waiting staff were lovely but it took AGES for our food to come, and they brought the wrong meal for me. They took it away, but I'd have liked to have known it would... More

Huge variety but you pay through the nose even for a take-out. In fairness very well wrapped and presented. However, Far too fattening.

It's a theme restaurant, Food is basic, not bad, not good, and of course they offer a couple of hundred types of cheese cake, hence the name., It's just OK, really nothing special. Staff is well trained, service is quick, food is ok.

My wife and I have ever had meals in a number of Cheesecake Factory restaurants in the United States and thankfully this was one of the few disappointing experiences we have had. The staff appeared to be rushed off their feet and our bread and meals took quite some time to arrive. I even had to ask the waiter to... More
