I tried to go – Tried to go, there was incredible line. That said, my frustration came not from the wait but from the arrogance of the person running the host area. There are ways you can tell someone they have to wait.. but you don't have to couple it with ignorance. I was ignored like I was waiting outside some bar on Sunset Strip... when I finally got the attention of the host, I was greeted with a "YES??!!" I didn't want to pay to support someone who has such a negative attitude... I had a long day, I moved on to P.F. Changs.. I am sure this place is as good as most... just don't expect to be greeted with any type of courtesy.
Decadent cheesecakes and classic American cuisine makes this a popular chain. – In Short
Faux-rustic finishes and colorful light fixtures abound at this almost always crowded chain. The thick-as-a-book menu features Americanized versions of worldly cuisines--Mexican, Vietnamese, Italian, Thai--but succeeds best with American classics. Burgers are a good choice, especially the ""Roadside Sliders,"" mini burgers served as appetizers. The myriad cheesecakes are over-the-top in concept and decadence. You'll leave full, with leftovers.
Good atmosphere and great food – I was really impressed by the variety they have on the menu, but still manage to make everything taste great. I had penne with shrimp, red peppers, and bacon and it was fabulous, and the calamari was great. Oh the white chocolate raspberry cheesecake - I'm a huge critic because it's my favorite kind, and this place does it perfect!
So Many Choices – I can never make up my mind when I go to the Cheesecake Factory because the menu has so many choices. It seems like almost every type of cuisine is represented as last time I was struggling to choose between the orange chicken and the pesto pasta. The portions are huge so remember not to eat too much and save room for dessert. Their chocolate peanut butter cheesecake is my personal favorite, but I'm sure they are all equally amazing.
Tastless and Tacky – A cheesy and disappointing experience. From top to bottom the very worst time I've ever had at a restaurant. Noone anywhere in that place seems to care at all about the quality of their food, service or professionalism. OVERATED, OVERHYPED and just plain OVER!
