Inside a bit noisy and the waitress seemed to be a bit in a hurry. The cheescake was great, and the panorama on Union Square is really cool. Outside you can enjoy the sun while having a drink.

Cheesecake Factory in Macy's store in Union Square continues to be one of the most popular restaurant venues because its food, ambiance, and price value remain consistent through the years. I have yet to get a bad meal at the Cheesecake factory and in spite of its popularity with people always in lines waiting to get in the service is... More

Right at Union square, on top of the Macy's. Very busy place (Actually, we waited a long time and realized people coming in after us were seated ahead of us, so we inquired and all of a sudden, both times, they seated us right away). Aside of that, the food is great, the portions were huge, you can easily share... More

Go to the top of Macy's right in the heart of town and have a great value lunch overlooking Union Square - huge menu with heaps to choose from (not just cheesecake). I was there last year and went again this year because I had such good memories - I wasn't disappointed.

Macy's were having a sale, so we added our name to a wait list downstairs, went shopping for an hour then headed up in the lift. Waited some more when we got up there, but although chaotic they seemed to be in control/used to the crowds. We ordered starters which never came (fortunately) as the mains are huge! I ordered...

Amazing place to go and looking over Union Square with the ice skating rink (we went in January) is beautiful! I went with 2 friends as a last minute thing to do before leaving San Francisco. We all purely wanted to go to The Cheesecake Factory because it is on The Big Bang Theory and we are all big fans... More

We went to the Macy's rooftop Cheesecake Factory on our first night in San Francisco. The place was heaving, we had a 25 minute wait and waited out on the terrace taking in the beautiful night-time city views. It was very much a party-ish atmosphere which I found quite strange but not bad. The mains were delicious and the vast... More

We went there at 5ish for an early dinner and waited for 20 mins for a seating. So I can imagine the wait to be longer a at peak hours. But the wait was quite bearable. They will text you (if you have a local number) when your table is ready and it helps when it is at the heart... More
