Our sweet choice in Albany was the Cheesecake Factory. We love this upscale chain restaurant and enjoy eating in it whenever possible. This time we only came for the desert and it was great.

I have eaten at this location a few times while in town for business, the most recent time in August. I have eaten at the restuarant as well as done take out.

Plenty of it but not pretty. Very disappointing. Besides the overhead red lights which don't allow you to be able to see your food unless I turn the flashlight on my iPhone. And it's noontime very bright outside but not in here. Should've taken a picture but the Cobb salad look like somebody had already pre-chewed my food came out... More

We have gone inside and had wonderful experiences. This review is for the to go. We ordered six meals and some apps. The good came out far beyond the time frame given. By the time it came out-waitress then disappeared again to do cc. This took over 10 minutes. Needles to say-our food was cold. It was also lack luster.... More

Everything about this chain is DATED. It reminds me of Las Vegas in the 90s. Fake Egyptian decor and lots of peach coloured pillars. The food is just as boring. It's totally middle of the road mall food. And the female servers wear way too much makeup and have big hair! I felt like it was Back to the Future... More

I met a colleague for a business lunch. He ordered a seared tuna salad and I ordered the Country French salad. Both were ample, presented beautifully,and tasty. Service was very good, and really appreciated the option of ordering from the Skinnylicious Menu. Good job, Cheesecake Factory!

I have never been to the Cheesecake Factory when there wasn't a lot of people waiting to get in. The food was good. The servers were thoughtful. The atmosphere is good. There is nothing particularly special about this restaurant because they serve masses of people, but it's always an enjoyable experience regardless.

The Cheesecake Factory is a cut above most other chain restaurants. I have lunch here occasionally, and the food has always been delicious. Try the flatbread pizzas (listed on menu as appetizers).....they are better than at most Italian restaurants in this area. Things to stay away from, tho, are the cocktails and the cheesecake.....both are way overpriced.
