“Returned after many years, still very good”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

My wife and I first tried the Cheesecake Factory at the Cambridge Galleria Mall almost ten years ago. Last weekend we were in Boston for a convention. We both thought it would be fun to go again. The staff was great, the menu is huge and varied and the portions are very generous. Just like last time, the meal left us no room for their big slices of yummy cheesecake. Good thing you can ask for them in a to-go box! Consistent good food at fair prices.

“We loved everything we ate”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

What can i say i love going to the cheescake factory whenever i can.
The service was great and we were lucky to be seated right away which never happens there. Anyway the food was just perfect and the cheescake is some of the best you can have...all twenty something flavors!!!!! Try one you'll love it and you'll want to take a piece home for later. Good location in cambridge, mass right at the galleria mall......try it you'll love it

“Lots of Variety”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

We got the bang bang chicken and shrimp as well as the Cajun jambalaya pasta and both were very good. The local Sam Adams and Blue Moon beers were great! The bread before the meal was just OK.

Our server was very nice but I ordered the bang bang with chicken and no shrimp; I got it with shrimp and no chicken. The manager and the waiter were very apologetic and fixed it quickly.

I have no complaints except to observe that this is not a quiet restaurant but on the plus side the menu has a LOT of choices. The choices are all over the map too and there should be something to please anybody.

The location is great if you want to combine dining and shopping since it is connected to the Cambridgeside Galleria.

“Far too much”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

The food was very good, just too much. They don't seem to know the meaning of a small portion. The food was very good and great value

“amazing salads”
Reviewed November 20, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This is a great place for a quick lunch. I especially love their "big salads". They have now added "skinny" versions of their salads for under 500 calories. This is my favorite place to get a great salad. They also have a huge menue with everything form hot meals to sandwiches.
