If you want a. Sweeping view of Newport Harbor, this is the spot. Typical food for the Factorychain with a diverse menus ending in their great desert. Their salads are excellent and huge. If you are in Fashion Island there are a number of good eating spots, but few with a view like this.

The place is huge so they can accommodate a lot of diners. The menu is huge with so many choices. If you can't find it here then you are VERY picky. Good quality food at reasonable prices. If you are a dessert fan then you have come to dessert heaven

When we finally got in I was expecting this awesome place because my wife had "hyped" it up for us. I was disappointed. Our server was not great and kept forgetting things. Our appetizer came out luke warm, our food came out after everyone else's (who'd been sat 20 minutes after us), the waiter never came back to check on... More

Food here is always average, nothing to write home about but not bad either. The southern fried chicken sliders are a favourite amongst the kids. Don't be afraid to split a meal and don't eat too much free bread or you will be taking 3/4 of your meal home.

You know that you will get the same quality one restaurant to another. Always good service. Good idea to share, or expect to take some... More

Visited the cheese cake factory in the spectrum center in Irvine. This is one place that will never disappoint dessert lovers. We had the ever tasty strawberry cheese cake and also tried lemon meringue cheesecake, both excellent as ever. Too good!

Every dish here has very high calories with just a few exceptions! It is always crowded so get here early or be on time if you have a reservation. The cheesecakes are killer, but about 1200-1500 calories! Yikes!
