We stayed at the Hilton Garden In Marina del Rey and decided to have dinner at the cheese cake factory only because it was waking distance. It was a urge surprise, the terrace was so nice with a great view to the Marina, the food was delicious and the service perfect. We were so happy that we went 3 more... More

This was our last night in LA and our hosts suggested the Cheesecake Factory. Had to book and once there had to ask for an outside table on the deck; was worth the extra few minutes wait. The menu was comprehensive and catered to all tastes. Table service was very good and the food when presented was delicious. Looking out... More

Went to restaurant late on a Sunday night. Wait time was 1/2 hr, which was ok, although we added our name to the wait list we were asked to come back in 15 min to get a pager as they were short on pagers. The one thing really disliked about the location is that there is no place to wait.... More

Big wallet, big meals, average taste. Bring a box to take home at least half your meal - or plan to share. But the cheesecake is another story! It is really great with tons of options. Enjoy!

We had a number of dinners/lunches here during our summer vacation in the US. We stayed in the hotel close-by, Jamaica bay Inn, and it was a delight to stroll down the beach towards the Cheesecake Factory. Having seen this restaurant portrayed in the Big Bang Theory a lot, we had to eat there and Wow, this is good food... More

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

Strange title right considering it is the Cheescake Factory :) Dont get me wrong you are spoiled for choice with the different cheescakes avaialble ...but I think you need to go and eat mains.. then either take away your dessert or visit again and only have dessert to really enjoy it all. Highly recommend the Grilled Rib Eye steak.... cooked... More
