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

This is the classic place where "no one goes there anymore; it's too crowded" as Yogi Berra used to say. Each time I've gone, I'm given a beeper, and once called in, am put into a SECOND line to wait. Then I finally get a meal, and am rushed like I'm double parked. The food is good, but the prices...

Stopped here for a quick lunch on the way to LAX. Service was good and prompt. Food was tasty, as always. This was our first time at this particular location and we'd stop by this one again.
