“VERY PLEASANT SURPRISE”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

Good ambience, good background music, great staff who weren't over pushy. Food was very tasty and came warm. You also have a view of the chefs cooking which gives a good feel that lots of it is fresh. Good outside eating areas in the evening with heating. Someone told me it was part of a chain, so what.

“Great restaurant, shame about the parking!”
Reviewed November 15, 2012 via mobile

We've just had a fantastic meal at The Cheesecake Factory.
The setting is lovely with views over the Marina. Our server Cecine was friendly and attentive. We chose the corn cakes as appetisers and then both myself and husband chose burgers (vegetarian and mushroom respectively). Delicious!
As the portions are so large we had to get cheesecake to go. The Reeces cheesecake will be a great midnight feast!
Marked down one mark for the parking situation. We should have paid more attention when we arrived as we hadn't noticed that it was $4.50 for the valet parking - our car was only about 20m from the door!

“Even the pickiest of eaters will find something delicious here”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

The menu is so extensive and the food is excellent. We had the salmon with rice, steaks, and pasta. Every dish was excellent as far as quality, taste and presentation. Portion sizes are large. We usually eat here about once every two months, both for lunch and dinner and I can't recommend it enough. There is always something you will want to try. Split an order and get a cheesecake dessert to splt as well.

“Always a good choice!”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Love this place, because the food is always the same quality, just perfect. It is always hard to get one of the nicer tables outside downstairs. If you stay in a hotel, def. try to get a table quicker through the concierge. The frozen Margheritas are excellent. Try the Thai Lettuce Wraps, yummy.
