My husband totally enjoyed his chicken with tomatoes, capers, asparagus & other greens on a bed... More

It was this location that made us love the Cheesecake Factory. Although we rarely have room for cheesecake, we love the food. The kids menu has a lot more variety than other restaurants and we always have trouble deciding what to have! The service was efficient and friendly. We went early so we would not have to wait, but that... More

Not a good visit to this particular Cheesecake Factory. Started out strong and quickly fizzled. Seated in wet booth and had to move. No apology or compensation for being wet for the rest of the meal. Food was mediocre at best along with the service. I love this chain, but was disappointed with tonight's visit. Hope next time will be... More

So much to choose from, but be warned its perhaps best to select a dish and share or you won't have room for its famous cheesecake. Of course you can always get the 'cheesecake to go'. I cannot praise this chain of restaurants enough. It's one of the highlights of a visit to the city. What more can you want... More
