Amazing food as always but 6pm Saturday night and wait for a table was already 1 hour. I'm sure in the 21st Century TCF could sort out a reservation system. Service was fantastic, American sized portions and the cheesecake really is something else

The location of this restaurant is where the Wow factor comes in, particularly outside where you can feel the openness of the space right above union square. At night the lights are great and the square is relatively empty, by day the traffic and people on the ground are equally as interesting. There is often a wait time for this restaurant so arrive before the hunger kicks in. The food is okay, with a massive selection of all sorts of salads and pasta and of course cheesecakes. It is what the name says, a factory so do not expect an exquisite meal but you will not leave unsatisfied. Service was good with friendly waiters and front desk people.

The Cheesecake Factory is the same standard whichever city you visit. Yes the wait is never ideal but any good Resturant is popular and unfortunately you can't make a reservation. We've never had a bad meal here and now they even do a skinny menu as well as their normal extensive menu. The wait staff here had no personality or chat but they were busy and just going through the motions. However the food was good, the cheesecake was to die for and it's good value for money. No complaints, another consistent meal.

The Cheesecake Factory, what you see is what you get!
Huge lines (one of the most popular Cheesecake Factory branches in the state) and very crowded but the wait is worthwhile.
A HUGE selection of dishes and the ones we tried we're very delicious and quite big. The price is reasonable and if you're hungry and don't care waiting the long line, that might be the spot for you.

The Cheesecake Factory is located in San Francisco downtown, it's very easy to get to the place.
I went there because of the cheesecakes, and had no idea what the rest of the menu was like.

Had one of the burgers with sweet potato fries, and I must say it was to die for. I barely saved some space for the delicious cheesecake, because the portions are really large.

Didn't have to wait to get a table, but the food did take a bit too much to arrive in the table.
