I love coming here. They are so accomodating for my 2 year old. They always offer him a plate of fruit and bread while we wait for our meals. It helps make the waiting easier and ...

The location is great, and I've always loved the Cheesecake Factory which usually has great service. I must have gotten a bad waiter in a bad day. But the service was horrible, wo...

Hoity Toity Tastyums 8/21/2006

Disclaimer: this restaurant serves Coke products. I had heard things about the Cheesecake Factory. Mainly, that it had wonderful cheesecake. Considering myself an aficionado of all things cheesecake, and considering today was my birthday, my husband recomnmended that we go there for a slice of cheesecake. Let's be realistic, he didn't have to twist my arm here. Now, the Cheesecake Factory is located in Legacy Village, a highly upscale shopping plaza. I have never been overly comfortable shopping in Beachwood, as I always feel dirt poor. Pulling through the wrought-iron gates in our little Aveo as a limousine was pulling out the other side of the entryway did not do much to discourage that paranoia. However, the need for cheesecake quickly overcame my insecurities, and the large orange building soon came into view. After driving around the wonderfully landscaped and maintained lot for a couple of minutes trying to find a parking space, we slowly made our way into the huge store. I am not sure what I was expecting, but I can tell you, it wasn't what we got. I think I had the store pegged closer to a Baskin Robbins or maybe a coffee shop. I wasn't expecting the cathedral-sized doors, vaulted ceilings, marble tiled floors and immaculate sculptures and etched glass. We walked in, and a large rounded desk awaited us. A very pleasant maitre d' asked us if we wanted smoking or non, and as I am on crutches, inquired if I wanted a table or a booth. We indicated nonsmoking and a booth, and she very chipperly (if that is a word) advised us that a server would be up momentarily, and what happened to my knee? After a simple exchange of formalities, she wished me the best of health, and an equally pleasant server came and took us to our booth, even walking slowly to keep pace with my gimping. The menu is closer to a book. Spiral bound, about 20 pages, laminated and with advertisements tucked in for Legacy Village stores, it took us several minutes to peruse and decide what we wished to eat. The server, Rachel I believe, was very patient, and got our drinks (without ice, like I always request, and probably 50% of the time do not get). Our orders were simple: I got the small BLT salad, my husband ordered the lunch-sized Caesar, and an appetizer of fried macaroni balls. She brought out a basket of bread, and we waited for our meal. It was during this time that my husband and I took note of the atmosphere. The tables and the room, massive I might add, are impeccable. The tables appear to be marble, with etched copper backsplashes. The booth was comfy, probably high-end vinyl. There was dark wood everywhere, and an open kitchen to the left of us. Columns seemed to take up various corners througout the dining area, and divider windows to the smoking section had large images of frosted geese. Linens were heavy, and the silverware was obviously higher quality than most restaurants. Overall, this restaurant was obviously high-end hoity toity. Our appetizer ($7.50) was brought out: breaded macaroni-and-cheese balls, baked over a bed of marinara sauce. I found the breading to be a bit salty, the inner mac-n-cheese was creamy and good. I think it had sour cream for the sauce. The appetizer came with four balls, maybe 2-3 inches in diameter. And the marinara sauce was fresh and delicious. Light, without too much garlic. Then, the main course: salads. My small salad, I kid you not, was about a half a head of lettuce, tons of tomatoes, hard boiled egg, and some (miniscule amounts, actually) of bacon. It was fresh, tasty, and the "bacon" dressing was disgusting. I had it served on the side, to be safe, and I am so thankful. It was like a green onion soup or something... gross. My husband's salad, the Caesar, was humongous. Imagine a large pasta bowl filled up, then more heaped upon it. That is the idea. I tried a bite, and it had a strong garlic flavor... my husband said it was light, though, and munched quite a bit. Overall, lunch was quite yummy. Dessert, well, that was an adventure. Two huge slices of cheesecake. I tried the original and my husband had the Oreo Mudslide concoction. Rich, creamy... sweet and filling. I couldn't finish my piece. My husband snarfed his, which was VERY rich... and promptly entered into a sugar buzz. He took the first bite and his eyes rolled back into his head. I actually got jealous of the pie... All in all, we paid about $53, including tip, for lunch. It is a bit steep for a normal lunch, but the dessert was good and the customer service was fabulous. The only thing that held back the 5th star, for me, was the hoity toity atmosphere. The staff didn't give it off, however, the fellow diners did. If you don't mind feeling like you don't make enough money, make sure you mention the Jag is in the shop. People seem to be highly judgmental here. more

Sweet Tooths, Check it Out! 4/16/2006

The Cheesecake Factory is a national chain but the food is good and uses high quality ingredients. The original restaurant is on the West Coast and this one ranks highly in comparison. You might think that a chain with Cheesecake in the name is only a dessert place, but that is far from the truth. The food is excellent here. The salads are my favorite. Save room for the desserts because the portions are large. Parking can be a problem and there is always a long line waiting during the height of the lunch and dinner hours. more

Great Menu! 4/15/2006

The Cheesecake Factory has one of the largest menus I have ever seen at a restaurant. They have everything you can imagine from a wide selection of salads to seafood dishes. The restaurant is very large but is always crowded, so be prepared to wait. Also, they do not take call ahead seating which is a big negative in my book. However, the cheesecake is delicious and they have at least fifteen to choose from. I recommend this restaurant! more

BEST RESTAURANT EVER!! 12/5/2005

I absolutely love this place! It's a good hour and a half away from me but it's definitely worth the drive! The portions of food you get are very generous and for being a more upscale restaurant the prices aren't so bad. Word of advice if you're going to dine here.. take left overs from dinner out in "doggie bags" because you have to save room for 1 slice out of the 34 varieties of cheesecake and they are every flavor imaginable! more

Editorial

  • 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.
