Beautiful location and a great atmosphere around and inside the restaurant. Lots of people walking around outside and easy to get to. As always the Cheesecake Factory has lots of options and the food is always delicious. Our favorites are the chicken Marsala, fettuccini Alfredo, filet mignon and Caesar Salad, and the kids meals are very good as well. Don't forget the cheesecake! The chocolate hazelnut cheesecake (with Nutella) is the newest dessert!

Sat at the bar for a drink and dessert. As a former bartender, cook, server and host, I took great interest in what was going on behind the bar. I stayed seated at the bar for almost an hour. During that time I watched the solo bartender, Allyse, work flawlessly. She was well organized, fast, efficient and professional. Her pours were on point as well as her prioritization of service. She wasn't an annoying "jibber-jabber-working-the-crowd-barkeep". Rather, she was a professional that had a keen eye for detail and a great sense of urgency while remaining calm and poised. When a drink order came off the printer, she was right on it.

I watched her make the orders faster than the servers could get them out. At one point, she had drinks for three different tables (total of about 10-11 drinks) at the end of her bar waiting to go out. All the while, she attended to five patrons at her bar who had various food and drink orders. When the food came out from the kitchen to the bar, she knew exactly who got what and if anything was missing. At one point, she corrected a server that had brought out an order by telling him there were fries that needed to be with it. She did all of this from memory. She never referred to a notepad or ticket order.

She greeted new guest professionally and with a smile. As the servers came up, she had smiles and friendly greetings for them too. Excellent food safety and handling practices too!

The food was good, the drinks that were made were on point and the service was outstanding. If you are near this restaurant and want excellent service, good food, great drinks and no nonsense, go inside and go to the bar. It is a hidden gem in the front of the house.

My compliments to the bartender and the manager. Allyse should be a manager. If I had a restaurant or bar, I would steal her from this place. Yes, she is that good.

Came with à bunch of friends, the waiters found us tables so we could be all together. Very good service and excellent food make this place a good one. The portions are so big you won't be straving when going out!

We decided to try another Cheese Factory. The location in Arlington is great. The food was good and the service was fast and polite. The drinks came out quickly. Even the wait on a Friday night with no reservation was less than 30 minutes. Great work.
