CHEESECAKE FACTORY

This restuarant is "top Shelf" in every aspect. It is a pleasure to go and enjoy the food which is delicious and very generous yet prices are reasonable. Go early for it is so popular. Not open for breakfast. Decor is very San Franciscan!So nice you hate to leave when thru eating. We love the place.

Love The Cheesecake Factory!!! Staff is excellent. There are so many different choices of foods. You could always go there and know there will be something on the menu for everyone. Food is really great. Never had a bad meal there.

We went for lunch when were in the mall. Seated quickly and enjoyed our salads. The place is perfect for a quick lunch during the day at the mall.

I lover Cheesecake Factory. The menu has a variety like few other restaurants. Everyone in the party should be able to find something they like. When you go you have to try the Chicken stuffed enchiladas. The only thing I don't like about CF is the discipline it takes to not order cheesecake. I usually fail!!

Loved the Tuna Tartar better than Wolfgang Puck. Had the Shrimp BLT without the middle piece of bread. Got a slice of Cheesecake to go and ate on my Jetblue flight home!

The menu is extensive and the food is always good. This location is always busy and noisy but not so noisy that you can't enjoy a conversation. We are typically put out on the patio because we have a guide dog in training. We are good with that, funny that we are always placed way in the back by the... More
