Too much Work!! – It stinks that you have to work so hard to get there, and then a table, and then a waiter in the Galleria location. The vodka martini and tuna tetaki salad really did make up for it...Kind of. Of course the cheesecakes are good.
Would have to be literally walking by to return though.
Great menu, awesome cheesecake, crowded – I've loved every meal at Cheesecake Factory but this place gets packed on weekend evenings and lunch. The menu offers everything from burgers to the best salads (love the seared tuna salad!) Italian dishes, southwest, mexican you name it. Every out-of-towner seems to have to dine at Cheesecake factory! Just plan to eat early or check in and shop for an hour because the place gets packed!
false advertisment – I've always enjoyed my time at the cheesecake factory, and when it came time to plan my rehearsal dinner I wished it could be there! Unfortunatley their website says "can easily seat over 60 people" yet somehow my 17 (according to the host) guests would have to come several hours early for us to be seated by dinner time. Wow.....IT DOESN'T SEEM EASY.........
I was planning a special night and now my money and my faith in the establishment, are going elsewhere!
Best cheesecake in town – This food is absolutely delicious, and the menu is so huge you are bound to find something on there that you are craving. Not only is the menu huge, but so are the entrees. Be prepared to share with somebody. I always share a meal with my sister and my mom! And don't forget the cheesecake. It is so good, and they have every cheesecake imaginable. So, whatever you're craving, trust me, they have it.
I Love This Place – The food is delicious and the atmosphere is great. While there is always a wait it is never very long. And then there is the cheesecake with a long list of flavors you can't go wrong. They also have very delicious martinis!! Great for a group gathering or an intimate dinner. The staff is very friendly and attentive!
Overated! – I have been hearing of this place by many people most likely because it is in the Galleria, and of course I became interested. The wait really was long and I have to say on a positive note, the interior was really nice, but remember the wait was very long. I was looking forward on what to try and stared at their menu. Either I pay a lot of money for a steak or I pay a bit of money for pasta or a hamburger. I went with the pasta. . . and boy was that a wrong choice. It' s really greasy and not good. My sister ordered a baked pasta, it was like biting into raw pasta soaked in oil. And as for my cousin, she got a burger, didn' t finish, asked for a togo box, and the waiter thru it away. All in all the place looked nice, but their food was not.
Sitting on the fence about this one. – The wait was long, but we expected that, we had a large group too which made things even harder for the staff. The drinks were good (try the gorilla!) and the waiter that handled the crowd definitely deserved extra props for dealing with us. I was expecting a bit more pizzaz with the main dishes, but they weren't bad. My only disappointment would be the cheesecake, I'm not used to it's gritty and curded texture, I was expecting something creamy and smooth.
ENORMOUS MENU AND PORTIONS! – First and foremost, if you go to CCF during the weekend and during peak hours, you're going to wait...this is true for every location from Houston to Boston. That being said, it's worth the wait for the truly good food and beverages. This is the first place I tried a mojito over five years ago and the CCF has the best one in town! Honestly, I've never tried their signature items...cheesecake! I've always gotten more than I needed in appetizers and regular entrees. I strongly suggest the chicken and biscuits (hello comfort food) and the chicken midera. The service has been split...I've had mediocre and like my last visit, excellent. My only complaint is that when you do have to wait, it's in a very tight location...either hallway or foyer. Get ready to be bumped into!
I just don't see what all the fuss is about – I think I am the only person in Houston that is not nuts for this place. I hated having to wait 30-45min. for a table. I think that the food is very bland. But I must day the desserts are something else completely. YUMM YUMM. But as far as for lunch or dinner, I would skip it, and just have dessert there.
Amazing restaurant – Cheesecake Factory is my favorite restaurant. I've been there several times, and never encountered any problems. The only bad thing about it is the long wait, but that's normally what you would expect to find at other restaurants on a Friday or Saturday night. But other than that, the food is great, the service is great, and the whole place itself is GREAT! The prices aren't bad either. It's well worth the wait!
