My BF and I had date night which included dinner and a movie. We were able to be seated right away, which was great considering it was a Saturday. We started with the Crab Wonton appetizer - very good although I didn't taste much crab meat in the filling. I had the Kale Salad, which has been one of my favorites there since they put it on the menu. They skimped on the buttermilk dressing, making the salad dry. I had to ask for more dressing - once I received it, it was really good. I had the lunch- sized portion of the Spaghetti Carbornara (sp?). It was just the right size after eating appetizer and a salad. My only complaint was that it was a bit salty for my taste. My BF had the Shrimp Platter - an abundance of large shrimp with fries and coleslaw. Service was excellent!

Everyone knows the CHEESECAKE FACTORY. Good food amid pleasant surroundings; makes for a mentally fun time.(The hardest thing is to find a time when there is not a long wait for a table(especially in Columbia)).

This restaurant caught my eye based on the outside sign. It has a beautiful interior. There is a feel of upscale place. Looks great. Unfortunately, it is too popular, a lot of people are dining there and everyone seats almost near each other. There is not enough space between tables. Food is OK - not the best, and taking in consideration the huge variety, there is not so much to choose from. Service was great except the welcoming person who I believe had a bad day. Not a place that I will go back soon.

After my 1.5 hour wait, I had the opportunity to be served by a waitress who kept forgetting what I ordered, never stopped by for a refill, the food was average at best (well, the avocado salad was actually pretty good), and they didn't have much of a drink selection. I'm convinced if they weren't in walking distance of a mall and movie theater, they would be a street stand selling cheesecake. Not worth the wait.
