Service Good

Late night drinks and dinner, still a 20 minute wait at the bar, margaritas soso. Service quick though and pasta served hot and tasty. Wines ok. Entrance both outside and inside the Galleria mall.

While their Cheese Cake is good, their regular menu food contains MSG which is a flavor enhancer but also many people are allergic to it. The Manager said that only some foods contain MSG but couldn't tell me what did and what didn't so I ordered what I thought would be least likely to contain it but had an allergic... More

Excellent food and service and the best desserts. Come hungry because the portions are big and the Cheesecake is the best!

Everyone knows that shopping mans you hungry. The Galleria is no exception. The Cheesecake Factory has been a family favorite. I ordered Shepard's Pie which has every food group and meat topped with potatoes. The lunch portion was more than I could eat. My wife has the the Monte Cristo sandwich. Wow! Great food and great service!

Is a great place to have lunch or dinner. Everything tastes great. Service is usually awesome, and when you get to the sweet part of the menu, you need to go with 3 or more friends, so each one of you can try a different cheesecacke. My favorite: Godiva and Lime.

This is a busy place at lunch, but no regrets after waiting for 20 minutes. Service was quick and pleasant. Salad was huge and very tasty. The menu is really big. It satisfies anyone's taste. We will be back tomorrow lunch!

I joined friends for lunch and had the salmon pesto. It was delicious. The service was also very good and the price was reasonable.

As tourists in Houston we we thought a visit to the Cheesecake Factory was in order as we can't get it at home. There is a pretty extensive menu of starters and mains, and my wife and I both went for burgers - her a burger topped with Mac and cheese, mine a bacon cheese burger. Both were sizeable and... More

This is probably one of my favorite go-to restaurants in Houston! Their menu is HUGE and extremely varied. They even offer a separate healthy menu/light options, which displays calories, etc. The food is VERY good! I'd you can make it, Happy Hour (ends at 6pm) has some great deals on appetizers and drinks. I believe their normally 10$+ appetizers are... More

It's the Cheesecake Factory, I love this place my favs are the Luau Salad, Thai Lettuce Wraps and the Jambalaya. The food here is always good but the service has never overwhelmed me, I do keep going back every time I'm in town but still the same thing but like I said the food is good.
