Went there on a Friday by myself during the lunch hour (on my day off). I sat at the bar and treated myself to the Asian Pear Martini. It was truly the best martini I have every had. Surprising for Cheesecake. Nick the bartender was friendly, personable and very attentive. Sat next to the most entertaining lady I have ever... More

We are regular customers of The Cheesecake Factory in Thousand Oaks, California and go there at least three times a week. We've been loyal customers for many years, and will continue to be so because of the great food, great service, and delicious choices. We know most of the servers by name, and most of the managers. Jennifer used to... More

One of the best things about good "chain restaurants" is if they get the exact routine down then it is always a great experience. I think that is the case with the Cheesecake Factory - I have eaten at several CF restaurants and they have all been the same exceptional staff and great food. This was no exception. The waitress...

Menu is certainly large and varied so odds of finding something to suit your mood and taste is good. Service is good. However food was served barely warm and when waiter was informed he verbalized how sorry he was but took no steps to remedy. Almost seemed like he was glad this was the complaint vs something else. Was attentive... More

We go here all the time when at The Oaks. We always get great service and the food is never disappointing. They go above and beyond even bringing our daughter a "toddler plate" when we sit down. Will definitely go back.

Same great food and variety that Cheesecake Factory is known for! Definitely eat out on the patio, or if it is a little too cold outside, try the beautiful atrium. The only downside is the noise level in the main seating area inside.

This is one of the best restaurants I've been to. They have a lot of choices to choose from. We went there for lunch and I had the salmon with rice and it was pretty good. Their lunch menu start from $9.99 but they give you lots of food. I didn't even eat dinner after that. The other good thing... More

We really like this restaurant. Sometimes the service isn't the best, but overall the food is really good.
