Yum!

Hyoid everything! I have come to this restrant many times, and each time have been impressed with the nice waiting staff, the quality, of the food, and drink, and the huge menu of meals, plus about 20 different kinds of cheesecakes to choose from, when finishing off the meal.

The Cheesecake Factory has everything you could ever want to order! Their avocado rolls are fabulous, the club sandwiches are great, and don't even get me started on the cheesecake!!! Every single flavor is utter perfection. They have burgers, pasta, quesadillas, and just about any other entree you might want to order! If you are looking for a semi-fancy restaurant,... More

This popular mall eatery has an extensive menu...and it takes an extensive time to get your food, too. The prices are upscale, and the food is good, but not really good. It seems people come here because they like the idea of going to a Cheesecake Factory restaurant more than having dinner at a nice place. Twice, dinners for small... More

Dropped in here for a quick dinner. Chinese chicken salad was huge and a good mix of ingredients. Very nice. Obviously I had a slice of cheesecake. Dulche du leche was full of flavour and good texture.

cheesecake factory in old orchard mall is a fun spot with lots of activity. you will pay for a good meal, but the service is excellent and the food is very good. if you can avoid the LONG waits on the weekends, it's a good choice for mall dining.

We always look forward to eating at The Cheesecake Factory, whenever we're near one, because the food is so good and the cheesecake, of course, is amazing. The Skokie location didn't disappoint. The restaurant is nicer than the downtown Chicago location because it's bright and open. (The downtown location is located in the basement of the John Hancock center and... More

Friday night - dining room was filled and there was a nice energy level. Requested my hamburger medium rare "with more rare" and it was perfect. In other restaurants the char broiled food sometimes has a burnt taste..This burger was delicious - this chef got it right. Our server, Nicole, was excellent. Oh.. and the chocolate cake slice is big... More

I don't come very often, but I'm always surprised that the food is better than I expected. This location has a weird layout, with the dining on the second floor. Lots of choice on the menu.
