Had lunch with a friend, quite an extensive menu. We both had the Cuban sandwich and a small side salad came with it. The bread was very fresh and crunchy. The meats and the pickle were outstanding.

The name notwithstanding, this restaurant offers much more than just cheesecake. I had wonderful Hawaiian Ahi, and they have just about anything from any kitchen you could imagine. And they do have a huge selection of cheese cake! The atmosphere is relaxed, nice interior, fast and friendly services. Large portions. No complaints!

I had called ahead and make a reservation for seven of us and asked for a round table. It was on a Saturday and they said I could make a reservation for no later than 11:30 a.m. That was fine. When we got there, they had our table ready. There were three young children so we asked for the children's... More

An old friend and I met there for lunch over the Christmas holidays. We ordered a glass of wine and started catching up and really weren't paying attention to the menu. The waiter was so nice when we said it might take a while and told us to let him know when we were ready. It was a little cool... More

I ate at Cheesecake Factory in Cerritos a couple of weeks ago and had the guacamole salad. It was delicious. So delicious when I met friends at the brea location I ordered the same salad. But the salad was soggy. I'm not sure if the guacamole was watery and made the salad soggy. I did report it to the waitress... More

I haven't visited a Cheesecake Factory for many years but they never disappoint. The meals are good quality and plentiful if not too big. The staff are always knowledgeable and friendly we had the orange chicken which was really good

Having never come across the place before I thought it was what it said......a place for cheesecake, but boy, oh boy it's much more than this. Firstly this place gets super busy, especially at the weekends, so my advice is book. You can eat both inside or out. It's much cooler inside due to AC so you might think about... More

We had the Santa Fe salad, should have shared it. It was the biggest salad I have ever had at a restaurant, couldn't finish it. Good taste, lots of chicken, very filling, no room for dessert. Most portions around the table were large and could have easily been shared.

After having a really miserable day, my friend suggested we go to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner as a 'pick me up'. The service when we got there was amazing. Our waitress was friendly, patient and always had a big smile on her face. The food was amazing. I had the Alfredo chicken pasta, and I was not disappointed. I... More

Last weekend our party of 14 decided to have a bday celebration for our niece. We were all looking forward to a nice meal as we have been to different Cheesecake Factory.
