I have to say that i love the cheesecake first of all. The only thing is that the menu is gianormous... it's so hard to look at everything and then make up your mind. Now the one funny thing is that their ceasar salad is so big you can share it with like Four people. GIANT!

Everytime I have eaten here it's been tasty. I have tried a few different dishes. The service is good too. If you love cheesecake, they have a variety for dessert and it's so good!

It was our son's 7th birthday. Waited for the order which almost took them 50 minutes. Thought it's Monday evening and won't be much crowded, even the restaurant looks pretty empty but the service we've got is as slow as we can imagine. The waitress is very nice and apologetic even the Manager came and apologize us as they served... More

This was not of the best Cheesecake Factory experiences we've had. Our dinner and cheesecakes were delicious. Portion sizes were large. We ordered fairly quickly but it took a long time to get our food, and the side salad came out with the entree instead of earlier. Our server was very busy, and made minimal stops at our table. I...

Have eaten at a number of Cheesecake Factories over the years, and this is easily the worst one I've ever been to. We've eaten here at least 5 or 6 times in the last 2 years, and it has gone downhill in terms of both service and food quality. The last time we went for a later dinner (around 9... More

One thing that really annoys me about restaurants with a separate bar area, is when they allow children in that area. There is plenty of seating in this restaurant, yet there are children at the bar. I come with my friends for drinks after work. We're trying to decompress. The last thing I need are children. In the bar. I... More
