You can't go wrong here!

Lots of choices from healthy to indulgent (amazing cheesecake) and excellent quality. Service is usually very good. There is often a wait but it's always nice to have the mall there to pass the time. Good for just about anyone and any get together.

Our family visits this location every year for my son's birthday. It's a tradition - I was eating CF Spicy Cashew Chicken when I went into labor with him! It's now 16 years later, and the Spicy Cashew Chicken is still as good as ever! The portion sizes are huge, so I've never actually made it to the dessert course.... More

Cheescake Factory is a favorite place of mine to eat. The service has always been terrific and the variety of choices on the menu pleases everyone if you are eating in a group. My all time favorite is a hamburger with sweet potatoe fries. It beats all other burgers in a variety of other restaurants. I would recommend eating there... More

Don't get me wrong; food / especially the deserts are good - - service is ok, but it's pricie $$$. Need to wait sometimes, but it's worth it.

We stopped here on a whim. If you stop here to dine, you will be too full to enjoy the reason that you stopped in the first place....Cheesecake! The service was a touch slow, we were seated outside and the waiter seemed a bit busy for the crowd that he was responsible for. The cheesecake was wonderful as always!

I love eating at The Cheesecake Factory! There is something on the menu for everyone. The portions are large and a great value. You have to leave room for the cheesecake (or take a slice home).

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.
