On a December Wednesday night, 50% of the tables were empty; nevertheless we had to wait 25 minutes for a table. The service was very average and they did not refill our water; food was delayed from the kitchen and was delivered at three different times to six members of our party. Food came in large portions, but was average... More

I usually steer clear of chain restaurants. However, the kids insisted on getting cheesecake for dessert and we agreed to visit the Cheesecake Factory in Sterling VA. Well, this was a very disappointing experience! First off, there was a peculiar moldy smell inside the restaurant. Then the server came to greet us, took the drinks order but he literally took...

I had lunch here last week and it was good overall. I had the Samosas as a starter and they were crispy and flavorful with a nice dipping sauce. I ordered the old fashioned burger as my entree and it was cooked just as I ordered it which was medium rare. Nice side of crispy fries to go with the... More

A standard Cheesecake Factory with quality servers but slow and infrequent attention as is common at other locations. The initial wait was short only 15-20 minutes. The interior is nicely decorated. The volume was not too loud. The quality of food was good and the menu offers so many possible choices that there is something for everyone. Better than most... More

Nice looking restaurant inside - had no idea the menu was so extensive, in fact it was bordering on overkill as it took so long to read through, then decide what you wanted to eat - and there is always the worry that an overly large menu will lead to poor quality food. That said - what we ordered was... More

There is something for everyone on the menu. I have no idea how they can keep such a huge menu. So many cheesecake options, mmmmm, amazing but a bit over priced. Portions are nicely sized, save room for dessert! I've been here several times, service is spotty, last time was pretty good.

We went to eat for my daughter's birthday to a restaurant we always enjoy. Unfortunately last night our service was terrible. The waiter acted like he just didn't care! We would have to catch him as he passed if we needed refills on our drinks etc. I will have to say after the forty minutes it took for our food... More

Perhaps the reason for the menu cost is the large food portions served to customers. I seldom dine here, but always go home with a "doggie bag."
