Had a great time as always

As we journeyed thru Connecticut until our train ride to New York we stopped here and the family loved it. We always get plenty of food for fair prices with doggy bags in hand. If you want variety give Cheesecake factory a try. Our server was good and we didn't have to wait long to be seated during... read more

Ordered a burger, wasn't good at all. My recommendation would be to skip the food there, and go directly for the cheesecake. Had better cheescake though elsewhere... This one is on the heavy side

Nothing surprising here. Plenty of selections from the menu...all good. Service was a bit slow but they were busy. Only fault in the visit was the mixed drinks. Very much on the weak side.

After being told the wait would be between 55 to 70 minutes, we waited over an hour and a half! No apologies were forthcoming. Having a 16 month old child made matters worse. The food was average at best and not worth waiting that long for. We will not be going back.

Crazy busy all the time but during holidays more so but they move quickly wait was not long at all, I was thrilled that they had options for me being vegan and gluten free. A lot of interesting salads I simply held the feta cheese from one option and I got an excellent large meal portioned salad filled with all... More

We have made the mistake in the past of eating a full dinner at the restaurant (the food is good and reasonably priced) - but then we didn't have room for their delicious cheesecake. So plan accordingly. They have a fairly extensive menu and have many drinks offerings. Service is normally pretty good - but the restaurant is always crowded... More

This is a chain, and normally I avoid chain restaurants with a passion. It can be a bit noisy but it's in the Danbury Mall complex, so if your off shopping and need a place to eat, this is the place for you. I always order off the low calorie menu, that has both reduced calorie meals and drinks. So... More

We shopped at the mall, and wanted dinner with a drink. ..we were sort of resigned to some regular fare and mediocre wine choices Wow!! What a delightful surprise. The wines were top shelf.. We had Kendall Jackson.. And the bread and entrees really really delicious!!

Food taste really good and waitresses are really polite. Drinks like mojitos didn't taste as the flavor they were advertising but you were good still! I don't think twice when we plan on going out there!

My favorite chain restaurant but expect a long wait. That brown bread is addicting and the Thai lettuce wraps are a must!
