Predictably great entree with attentive staff and welcoming atmosphere. A great spot to just camp out and chat with my friend of 50 years. Great bar selections too.

My family ended up here after shopping last night. It is a large restaurant next to the AMC movie theater in Garden State Plaza. We have been here before and always have a nice time. The staff is very nice but service is almost always quite slow. Ironic since it is next to a movie theater, but if you are dining before a movie leave plenty of time! We usually dine here after a movie for this reason.

The food is good. Of particular note this time was the strawberry smoothie which was delicious and the Long Island Iced Tea from the bar was perfect! My turkey and Brie sandwich with apricots and dried cherries was spot on! Others had the trout and the salmon which they really enjoyed. Their fish dishes tend to be a bit salty...so if you are sensitive to salt you might want to skip the fish entrees...not a problem because the menu is huge and there are so many other options.

We did not have dessert this time, but if you want a treat at the start of your meal place an order of New Orleans Beignets and they will be ready by the time you are done with dinner (they also tell you to do it this way on the menu). They come with three different sauces. You can't go wrong! It is by far their best dessert and worth the calories and easy to share.

Give yourself plenty of time and enjoy your meal.

Noisy, sandy lettuce served, and just an "I'm sorry" and we will reorder the lettuce.
If you were truly sorry you would rectify and at least give a complementary dessert or drink...just to keep your customers happy to return again. Oh and yes, the rest of the dinner was getting cold, because it took 10 minutes to serve the lettuce leaves that were soaking wet upon return. REALLY!
Where is the quality control and where is the manager?

Very good food and menu. Can be noisy at times due to the movie crowd..Service can be slow when the Café is filled.The atmosphere caters to friends and family. Waiters are friendly, courteous and engage inconversation time permitting. Reservations are highly recommended.

So you're a Cheesecake Factory junky? This is your kinda place. A stupidly extensive menu, strollers everywhere, long waits and loud patrons sums up this experience. Don't go here expecting to relax or have a peaceful meal...you'd be better off at a McDonald's drive thru. Everything is average, except the portions as we all know. Spend a few extra bucks and go to a better place if you don't want to be in a family room dining experience.
