I haven't visited a Cheesecake Factory for many years but they never disappoint. The meals are good quality and plentiful if not too big. The staff are always knowledgeable and friendly we had the orange chicken which was really good

Having never come across the place before I thought it was what it said......a place for cheesecake, but boy, oh boy it's much more than this. Firstly this place gets super busy, especially at the weekends, so my advice is book. You can eat both inside or out. It's much cooler inside due to AC so you might think about... More

We had the Santa Fe salad, should have shared it. It was the biggest salad I have ever had at a restaurant, couldn't finish it. Good taste, lots of chicken, very filling, no room for dessert. Most portions around the table were large and could have easily been shared.

After having a really miserable day, my friend suggested we go to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner as a 'pick me up'. The service when we got there was amazing. Our waitress was friendly, patient and always had a big smile on her face. The food was amazing. I had the Alfredo chicken pasta, and I was not disappointed. I... More

Last weekend our party of 14 decided to have a bday celebration for our niece. We were all looking forward to a nice meal as we have been to different Cheesecake Factory. This was our first time at this particular Cheesecake Factory. Everything was fine until the food came out. All the dishes were okay except for the filet mignon... More

While on vacation we left the Anaheim area and came to this Brea location to get a respite from the Disney crowds. We enjoyed lunch here and had the place nearly to ourselves with just a few other diners. We were seated immediately and didn't even need to wait 20 minutes to 1 hour as you typically do at any...

My wife and I had lunch yesterday at the Brea location...In the past we have had mixed reviews on the service (more specific the bartender who we found out is no loner there?)....But today's visit was Refreshing. Our server was Crystal (Hope I spelled her name correctly)....She was very kind, took the time to talk to us, and advised us... More

Both my husband and I couldn't remember the last time we had eaten at a CF so we thought we'd give it another shot. We sat in the bar to get quicker service but we didn't get greeted for at least 3 minutes after we sat. Ordered beer and lunch, Chinese chicken salad for me and shrimp scampi sub GF... More

I go to this restaurant frequently for lunch as I love some of the soups and the Cheesecake is to die for! The Mexican Tortia Chicken soup on Thursdays is my favorite and a bowl will fill you up. Unfortunately, there are different chefs on different Thursdays and the soup can be inconsistent. The staff is very friendly and courteous.... More

I have visited the Cheesecake Factory on several occasions throughout the years. The cafeteria size dinning room, is as noisy as could be with no sound absorption. The oversized menu takes forever to go through. the menu has more advertising pages than menu items or pictures of the plates. When the food finally made it to our table, it was... More
