Party of two gals visited after shopping for hours. Seated promptly and server brought water and bread while we perused menu offering. Shrimp salad generous and freshly prepared; two small plates freshly prepared and generous for being "small plates". Nice wine offering - Kendal Jackson VR chilled properly. Water glass filled without server being intrusive. Desserts appealing and two ordered.... More

Stopped by for a standard week day lunch. There was a small crowd but no wait for a table. The wait staff took our orders quickly; everyone on our group selected a sandwich of some sort. Two selected a soup-sandwich-salad special. The consensus was the food was slightly above average in taste but the portion sizes were very large. The... More

Fair I don't remember what I ate but it was not at all anything to remember. I have eaten and cooked a nutshell of different ethnic foods and this restaurant did not impress me.

Went on a Sunday for lunch. I knew we would have to wait for seating because it was Sunday lunch time. When we checked in for a table, the receptionist took my name and gave me a pager. I asked how far the pager can be from the restaurant in order for the the signal to reach, she said it... More

I love the Cheesecake Factory. The food options are endless and cater to each person and the service is good. This is a good place to visit after hours of shopping.

We come to The Cheesecake Factory about twice a month. We burn a little time in the Fair Oaks Mall while waiting for our table. The Bacon Bacon burger is very tasty! This burger is definitely for the bacon lovers. It has thick and thin sliced bacon, with a special sauce that's pure deliciousness! I order the crispy sweat potato... More

The food is the same as all of the chain and it can get very crowded but service was good and nice to have a decent meal instead of fast food while at the mall.

The menu here is a textbook, but I have my favorites. Renee’s special is one of my favorites. Always need to save room for dessert! I can never finish it, so I always look forward to the left over cheesecake I take home with me. No reservations. Suggest spying an available table in the bar area – no wait!

The only thing I can complain about is the long wait during their busy time! Always consistant in their service and quality of food. Some of the appetizers are large enough to be an entree

We went for dinner on a Monday night and to our surprise, the place wasn't as empty or slow as we thought it would be. So, right off the bat, we felt this place has something good to offer. We ordered two appetizers, cocktail drinks, entrees and dessert, the whole nine yard. Their dinner breads were warm and soft, entrees... More
