I hadn't eaten at the Cheesecake Factory for years, and the food has improved in the interim. Great selection, excellent service, beautiful new locations, and as always CheeseCake that will send you into Outer Space. I wouldn't be suprised if they have UFO landing pads on the roof so extraterrestials can get cheesecake to go.

The Cheesecake Factory has a huge selection of deserts. The portions are really enough for two people so we'll go there sometimes and split a desert. After a movie is the best time to go, and there's a movie theater practically next door.

Huge menu and it seems that they do it all right. Huge drinks--great warm bread basket and soft butter to start. From sticky Salmon on rice to Salads to Chicken Fingers--a huge order and maybe the best you'll ever eat--they hit the mark or exceed it. The cheesecake is amazing--but the last reason to visit! There is a reason that... More

My wife and I have dined here many times and have never had a bad experience. The quality control of their dishes has always been spot on. The service is beyond approach as well. A lot of "Fine Dining" establishments could take a serious note from this business model. Tip: This time of year, if you want to avoid a... More

Good place to eat local american dinner. Adequate sizing of the food. Good variety of selection of menu. But certain item is not cheap, just be careful when choosing your items. Overall, it won't break your camel back when you dine there. And of course the desert is great, again not cheap.

Had the chicken Madeira, wife had the seared ahi salad. Wow, both were really tasty and the portions were generous. Our waiter was very friendly. The chicken dish came with garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus al dente, just the way I like it. Most reviewers love the food but hate the calories, I agree.

We frequent cheese cake often but other locations. This one in Particular was less than par. I got the fish tacos and got the smallest piece of fish in the tacos it was less than a bite full. My husband got the steak and cheese and they used the bread for the sandwich that is used when they give you... More

We love going to Cheesecake Factory when we're in California. Their bottomless Arnold Palmers are really good (iced tea and lemonade). This trip I ordered from the Skinnylicious menu. I had the Asian Chicken Salad, which was really good. My DIL always has the Skinnylicious Factory Chopped Salad. The next time we went (before a movie), I had the Skinnylicious... More

I have eaten at this restaurant many times, but it had been awhile, so i met a friend for lunch and was not disappointed. This restaurant is located in the TO Mall - so there is always plenty of parking. We arrived at 11:30, a little early for the lunch crowd. Good move as we got a table right away... More
