“Too busy for us - shame”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013 via mobile

It's a shame they don't take bookings. So waiting around for an hour or so with the kids made it a no go zone for us. Menu looks great. Take away version was yummy.

“What a a great surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

I had never been to a Cheesecake Factory resturant before. What a menu! I went for the lunch size salad which was huge and the deserts do they really think that people can finish all the food? The service was outstanding, the food amazing. The presentation was excellent.

“Great place to eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

If you don't mind the wait this is definitely the place to eat, great value, extensive menu. We have found it hard to find a nice place to eat at a reasonable price and this is great and you can get veggies and salad it's not all fried and topped with cheese. If you have young children then try to get there before 6 pm to avoid waiting. The staff are good and attentive. My only complaint was it was very cold in the area sat.

“Fantastic service for such a busy place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013 via mobile

Went here for dinner. Didn't have a reservation so was expecting a long wait- but was only about 45 mins, although they said it would be over an hour. Place was absolutely jam packed. Service was incredible. Food was great, although the cheesecake wasn't quite what I was expecting (being used to Aussie cheesecakes) but still delicious. Very happy we went!

“Best dining experience I've had for years”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

Service, food, atmosphere, variety, everything in every way all 3 times that we dined here over a week was absolutely incredible.

Amazing food, served quick and with a smile. If only Australian restaurant owners had the initiative to learn from this business model.

If you go to this area of Hawaii without eating here, you are really depriving yourself of an amazing culinary experience.
