I've eaten only lunch at this location, but believe dinner to be of the same quality. I've always believed the Cheesecake Factory restaurants have too large a menu to be able prepare all things well. There are some dishes they do very well and many lunch items are in that category. This lunch I just had the Classic Burger with cheddar cheese and fries. I thought the burger to be especialloy tasty and the fries were nice and crisp without an oily taste. My spouse oprdered Renee's Special, 1/2 turkey sandwich with soup and salad, she commented that each item was delicious and would have them again. This restaurant seems to be very popular and we had to wait about 30 minutes for a table. These is valet parking available and I would recommend you use it rather than wasting time trying to find parking on your own.

I am a great proponent of small, individually run businesses. However, it is really hard to give up a chance to come to The Cheesecake Factory in Marina del Rey. The location is great, you can sit outside on the patio and have views of the beach and boats. Service is always excellent. Food is delicious. I had the Steak Dianne and shrimp combo last time. Great value for money. It would have been double the price at any other 'fancy' restaurant.
I always stop at this restaurant when taking people to the airport. It's a nice stop before they have to fly!

Food at the Cheesake is always great but beware of the large portions, look for low calorie options. The views of the beach and marina are excellent here. It's a wonderful experience to enjoy lunch in the sun or evening drinks at the Beachfront Cafe, very romantic! If there is a wait for dinner, have a drink at the Beachfront Cafe. The location is definitely worth the wait!

Visited The Cheesecake Factory for the first time and it hasn't been the last. I ordered the Buffalo Wings which were delicious and had one of their burgers which was huge with a large size of onion rings. Enjoyed it all and was so full so didn't have any cheesecake. The waiter was very friendly and helpful....topping our drinks up, helping with the menu and ensuring we were enjoying the food. The place is very busy but worth the wait.
