A cheesecake factory. Could it sound any more delightful, any more wonderful? Well, yes, it sounds good, but the Cheesecake Factory in downtown Seattle is anything but. The wait is atrocious-- I really don't know why so many people are so eager to get in! Expect a good 45 minute wait on busy evenings, if you're lucky. The menu is over-the-top and I do not understand why they need to advertise in between pages. Can no one see that ploy? It's quite sad. The food comes in such wastefully large portions and it's not like you want to eat that food the next day anyways-- it is hastily, pre-prepared and always a sloppy mess, especially the sandwiches. The cheesecake is fine at the end, but by god you know you're gaining four pounds right then and there while you're enjoying the cheesecake. Really, why go here? It's over-produced, catering to the masses impersonal style is so jarring.
