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.

I am a big fan of the Cheesecake Factory. I will seek it out when traveling. The menu selection is huge. The food is well prepared. Portions are huge. Good quality control, location to location. 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!

The Cheesecake Factory at The Spectrum is one of their larger restaurants and the food is up to their usual standards. It's a large and varied menu. As always, the parking at The Spectrum is a challenge but there is a valet close by to make it a little easier. Definitely worth a trip for the cheesecake alone.

There aren't very many competitors to The Cheesecake Factory, in my opinion. First, they have great food. Second, they have GREAT Cheesecakes, all different kinds. It might take you 10 minutes to just decide which one. Prepare to pay for what they give you, as it's a bit "pricey."

I had no idea they have a appetizer special during happy hour. It's $5.95 until 6 pm during the weekdays. They also have a few other items for a little more too. My favorite dish at CC Factory is their Falafel salad. It's fantastic and a healthy choice when I try to stay on a lifestyle change.

the food is just so pedestrian, and the service so middle of the road. The bam bam hot and spicy chicken and shrimp was so bland, and tasted so processed, I really only ate like 3 bites. and the server was so slow.
