This is my favorite Cheesecake Factory. They have plenty of parking. When you wait they give you a buzzer which permits you to wander around a bit. Right on the Marina.The food is good as well as the service.Sit outside and enjoy the view and the air.

“Went For the Patio View”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

Considering the location this is one of the best deals for a really good meal, good atmosphere, and great marina view. Oh and the pumpkin cheesecake is amazing. The menu is a book (literally) but we choose to have a couple small plates which are actually a very nice size. Tuna tartare was really very good. I would definitely go back maybe in the afternoon next time.

One of the best features of this large restaurant besides the patio on the marina is that there is valet parking.

We are from Australia, and we just L O V E The Cheesecake Factory.
We stopped at Marina Del Ray for lunch as we were driving around viewing the local sights.
First off we had a Valet park our hire car...very nice touch.
There was 3 of us and we chose a table outside, and it was just lovely.
Beautiful day, and all very clean with a lovely view of the Marina Bay
The service was impeccable and the food was delicious.

We did suffer a condition we call *eyes are bigger than the belly*
We just could not refuse ordering 3 courses from the delicious menu.
By the time it came to the Cheesecake, we could barely move...so we ordered one Choc Chip Cookie Dough cheesecake between the 3 of us. The Best. YUMMO.

If it wasn't for the fact we were flying out that evening we would have taken some with us.

Thank you Cheesecake Factory.
We love you, and next visit to the USA we will seek you out again.

“Popular Italian/seafood restaurant - with Cheescake desserts”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

We had dinner - and missed out on the views as it was dark. It was busy and we were quickly seated outside - but warm with an array of patio heaters. Service was friendly and efficient. We had a Seafood Gumbo and Jambalaya. Portions were large and quality was good. Finished up with an Original Cheescake - what else?

“Great food, service & cheesecakes”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

We ate here on 3 separate occasions and found the service excellent and the food tasty with generous servings and we left with a bag of leftovers each time. Plenty of cheesecake flavours to choose from. Huge menu selection of over 200 items to choose from.
