There were so many yummy choices and the meals are a decent size. I had a 4 cheese past which ended up as a 5 cheese pasta because I added parmesan cheese. I then had a cheesecake for dessert which is also a decent size and they are renowned for (hence the name). It is safe to say I walked... More

From its name, one might think that the only thing the cheesecake factory serves is cheesecake. Not so. An impressive list of burgers etc complement the enormous selection of cheesecakes. Our first attempted visit was abandoned due to the long wait for a table. They get very busy at times. Our party of four followed up the next day with... More

Must do for everyone visiting San Fransisco. Ate fab pineapple cheesecake the best I think is the key lime pie cheesecake - very jealous of my husband's choice! Sat out side on the 8th floor of Macy's it was just ace. Lunch food looked fab and a huge menu. You have to go!

Gigantic portions of dinner, with taste that's finger licking good. I ordered the chicken and biscuits, and if I could put any more food into my stomach, i would have. It was like a deconstructed chicken pot pie (which I love!). The wait however was ridiculous, it was over an hour wait for a table or grab a seat at... More

This was my first time at the Cheesecake Factory and I loved it so much that I went back again the next evening. My server was fantastic. He was so friendly and helpful and chatted to me for ages. I had the Evelyn’s pasta but didn’t like some of the vegetable; he said it was no problem to change these... More

We only had 2 nights in SF and I am so disappointed that we wasted one of our night at the Cheesecake Factory. I was so curious and really wanted to try it. Firstly, we had to wait for 1.5 hours to get a table, it was a Friday night so fair enough. They at least gave us a beeper... More

As everyone one else says this place is very busy but totally worth the wait. Fantastic cocktails and generous portions of food. Always go for a table on the terrace as you get a great view of union square.

Super busy but was not waiting for too long and it was worth it. Food was great but service was a bit on the slow side due to how busy it was. Food was great and so is the location is great, as for the cheese cake well u'll struggle to eat any full slice as they are massive.

We stopped in here after freezing on a double decker tour to thaw out and have lunch. The soup of the day was Mexican Tortilla which was delicious. The Warm Asparagus salad was unique and yummy. My husband had the spaghetti carabonera with chicken and loved it. We had no room for dessert but will surely return before we leave... More
