The food is pretty good but the Cheesecake Factory has gotten overly expensive. $15 for a small bowl of pasta without meat is excessive. I was surprised when I arrived that it was fairly empty on a Friday afternoon for lunch. That was

Great food and terrible service. It's a shame. Though if you choose to indulge, order it togo. Linda knows about chocolate.

I was a little disappointed last time. We waited about an hour for a table and it seemed as though their food lacked personal touch and the place had a very corporate feel. OK food, just not worth the wait or the price.

I love Cheesecake Factory. I have eaten there many times. Yes there are long waits sometimes, but it is because it is a great restaurant. All their food is good, drinks are wonderful and I still have not had a cheesecake I did not enjoy there. The atmosphere is great as well. They usually are very busy and again it is because it is a great place to go. My company has had several company parties there and it was wonderful. I have celebrated my daughters birthdays there as well as my own. Nothing bad to say. When I have company come from out of town that is the first place I take them. It is great.

To be honest if you have been to one Cheesecake Factory you been to them all. The ambiance, decor and menu are the same in them all. Same wall color, architecture, etc. The food is adequate and appealing to the eye, but typical for a successful chain restaurant as such. The food is enough to take home and don't bother looking at the dessert menu unless it is to go. Some menu items listed in the "book" (which are also full of ads) are over-priced a bit for the quality and the presentation is not top notch, but the price is comparable with other casual chain restaurants. If they got rid of half the menu items I think they will be just fine. I can?t imagine a newbie going in for the first time and reading the entire menu before ordering. As with any large restaurant, wait time and service can be bad if extremely busy (this is quite often). The bread they give you is not great, so order a pricy appetizer to share to get things started. The selection of appetizers are quite good and big enough as a meal if you wish. It is still one of my favorites of the large ?chain? restaurants though.

Cons: The bread, service at times

The architecture is the only reason to go to the Cheesecake Factory. It is very simliar all over the country so if you had been to one, you have been to them all. The brass walls and ceilings are very beautiful and something that should be seen once. The food is another story. Since this is the "Cheesecake Factory" tell me why I have had better cheesecake from a grocery store or a "no bake cheesecake" out of a box. The food sounds exotic and wonderful. Well it's not. It is greasy and below mediocre. And if you like to wait in line for 30 to an hour this is the place for you.

I have stopped eating at this place because not only does the food start to taste exactly the same no matter what you order - but you can plan to wait an absurd amount of time for it.

We went to this The Cheesecake Factory few days ago and ordered a piece of chocolate cheesecake. It was delicious. Then we ordered a 7" cake and enjoyed it for few days though it was too much calorie. The other day we visited Sams Club and found the same 7" cake priced 40% less. I called Cheesecake Factory to enquire, they pointed to multiple phone numbers and finally one said send feedback email through their website. They responded they cannot match Sams price eventhough these two stores are within 1/2 mile radius. Customer service not good.

Some may argue that the Cheesecake Factory is pricey for what you get. I totally disagree. My date and I enjoyed a splendid dinner at this restaraunt. Its the best because the Denver site allows you to dine outdoors. On a really beautiful day its the best. The menu gets an A+ for diversity and depth.

The inside of the Cheesecake Factory is exceptionally beautiful, but the regular food (not the cheesecake) is only average. I ordered the pizza and was not too thrilled. My husband ordered a sandwich that was also not that great. But, the cheesecake makes up for it tenfold. The cheesecake is like taking a bite of heaven- oh so wonderful! The price of the food is also a little outrageous.

I was confused by everyone who gave poor ratings, almost based entirely because this is a chain. There are such things as chain eateries with CLASS, and the Cheesecake Factory happens to be one of them. Not only great for their specialty in their dessert menu, their entrees are very tasty and you get a lot of bang for your buck. The Shrimp New Orleans is out of this world for those who like a little tast of LA, Shrimp & Angelhair Pasta, Popcorn Shrimp, all favorites of mine. Personally I have never experienced bad service there, I've always had great waiters. Or if you want to go relax & have a drink, their bar is great (try a Mai Tai). Well worth the money for a visit here.

Quite a few people had told me how good The Cheesecake Factory was so one Saturday night my husband and I tried it. We should have went somewhere else. The hostess was snotty first of all and the service was the WORST I've EVER had. I had to ASK for cream for my coffee, we had to ASK for silverware, he took a long time to come back and check on us and he had a terrible attitude. I was finally so disgusted with the way we were treated we asked for our cheesecake to go and were given the 2 smallest slices in the restaurant. When I called and complained to the manager the next day he made excuses and pretty much blew me off. There are MUCH better places to eat in LoDo where the service is MUCH better too.

The Factory gets a bad rap because it is a chain that often gets lumped in with Applebee's and Fridays. While it may be a chain, it is more like il Fornaio in operation, with real chefs in the kitchen, and a top operation in the headquarters. Thsi is not corporate food. This place is excellent for larger parties because of the diverse menu. It is conducive for sharing and general conviviality that good fun food can generate. It's not Mizuna by any means, but the portions are huge, the ingredients fresh and well prepared, and of course the cheesecake is excellent. I originally resisted wanting to like this place and always come away satisfied and impressed.

If you can't get to the Double Rainbow in Albuquerque NM, this is the next best thing. Martha says "it's a good thing." Nope, this is GOOD STUFF!!

Are you kidding? The best dessert in Denver is a national chain? Wow, we've got a lot to learn. Try Wash Park Grill for brunch, they've got 5 desserts on their buffet that beat this stuff.

Everytime i go to the Cheesecake Factory and look and those beautiful desserts on display - I feel as i did the first time I laid eyes on the joint- I'm like a kid in a candy store- I really have to talk myself out of getting carried away-Just yesterday i was downtown @ the CF and was greeted with the same wonderful customer service- the usual polite ,yet sincere warmth , kindness and respect that is shown to all who enter - I purchased 1 slicefabulous mousse cake- a slice of the black-out cake - 2 slices of strawberry cheesecake & 1 slice of the plain cheesecake - each slice with dollops of their delightful whipped cream. I 've not found any place to compare to desserts the CF has- I thank God for the Cheesecake Factory

I don't get these snobby reviews. Tasteless? Hardly! I have eaten her about 4 or 5 times since I moved to colorado. There was plenty of flavor to the dishes I tried. Service is good. Atmophere is nice. I am noticing a trend. The snobbier the waiters are the better the rating that the restaurant gets.

This is a chain restaurant you visit for one thing...Cheesecake. The Boston Cream Cheesecake and Fresh Banana Cream Cheesecake are excellent. Unfortunately, the extensive menu creates issues with price and quality. Many items are overpriced when considering the taste and overall quality. Too many items on the menu means inability to really stay focused and make a select group of dishes well. Portions are large but this is meaningless if the dishes lacks qualities that make it desireable. We found our Caesar Salads to be large but over powerd by garlic and we love garlic, Brushetta over powered by vinegar. The Oscar BBQ Sandwich made me wish I had either just order only cheesecake or prepared the sandwich myself at home. The service was polite, timely, and made the overall experience enjoyable despite the non-dessert selections we made. Visit The Cheesecake Factory to eat cheesecake and nothing else.

This is by far the best place to go for any sort of celebration. The menu is extensive and not to mention the MYRIAD of cheesecakes. Must try's include the meatloaf (which is suprisingly awesome), chicken marsala, and the banana cream cheesecake. Melt in your mouth good stuff. This is great for romantic outings as well.
