Cheesecake Factory victory

As ever, a very good meal. After eating in San Francisco and Hawaii it seems that where ever we eat at the Cheesecake Factory the food quality and service is great. Next time in states will visit again.

We are coming towards the end of our five week tour of the U.S. and have eaten at several CF's including Boston, Vegas and San Francisco. We heard good reports about this one and decided to take a taxi from LAX airport hotel on our last night in LA. How disappointed we were. The half hour wait for a table... More

This restaurant is always crowded but the chocolate mousse cheesecake is worth the wait!!! It always a good idea to order ahead so that you spend less time waiting in line.

This Cheesecake Factory is similar in menu to those in the chain but the outdoor area is really most lovely -- a good place to meet for happy hour or a later evening dessert. And the cheesecakes are simply decadently delicious -- however who wants to know how much butter, sugar etc is in them. Our wines by the glass... More

I am a creature of habit and this place always delivers! Sweet corn tamale and Shrimp Scampi with angel hair pasta do the trick every time. Great for a midweek lunch. Nights are normally crowded and very long waits on weekends.

We visited The Cheesecake Factory on a busy Monday evening. Food was ok, not very special, but in accordance to the price. Service was peculiar, we got refills of glasses being almost full, main course was served with almost 10 minutes between first and last and part of the meal never made it to our table. This is second time... More

My family came here on a Tuesday night. Took 30 minutes to get to the table. They expected 6 adults and 1 child to sot in a booth. WRONG! So then it took longer to get a couple tables pushed together. Duh! Took another 30-45 mins. for food (appetizers were not brought out ahead of time). Restaurant is set up... More

The great food of Cheesecake Factory with a view of the Marina! A wonderful combination. We went on a Saturday for lunch and we had no reservation and still we were able to get a table with a really nice view. The service was fast and the food was great as usual. The waiters are so friendly and helpful. I... More
