poor experience from the start. given a 10 minute wait for a table for 2 when half the tables in restaurant are clearly vacant and set with dish-ware. once seated had another excessive wait to put in orders with a neglectful waiter. quick lunch turned into 2 hour ordeal. would not recommend. good food tho

I have eaten at the Cheesecake factory many times. I normally order the appetizers, but have on occasion eaten a meal. My experience with the food is what can be expected, average. The customer service for the most part was also average. The parking for the restaurant is not very good if one wants to compare to free parking in fashion valley. However, you are downtown SD and parking is a premium ; I don't know of any restaurant that offers free parking. Thus, overall the Cheesecake Factory in my opinion is a 3/1/2 star. Keep in mind they don't have specialty Chef's at chain restaurants. If they did I could give a higher rating, and the price would be higher. The CHEESECAKE IS DELICIOUS AND THIS IS THEIR SPECIALITY.

Always my favorite place to go, whenever I visit a metropolitan city. Their original New York Cheesecake is the best of the best. However, if the price could be tuned down a little bit, it would be perfect.

Food was good as expected. The servers seem to just do their job. Also better not come in a rush, service is kinda slow. The atmosphere is good and relaxing.

I normally do not post reviews but in this case I have to. We went to the Seaport Location for the first time last night and the service and food were not very good. I ordered the fried zucchini as I always do. When they came to the table they were cold and thin like fries. Nothing like they are normally made at every other Cheescake Factory I have ever been to. The biggest pet peve I have is if a server does not clear the dirty appetizer dishes before the main meal dishes are served. Sure enough...the dinner came out and was plopped on a table full of dirty dishes! To make it worse, our server walked away without taking them! What? He had to make room between the dirty dishes to put the meal dishes down! Then a female server brought my husbands plate and said "oh let me clear these dirty dishes". She wasnt even our server and noticed that the table was full of dishes that needed to be cleared. I ordered the Tuscan Chicken dish that I love, with extra farro and easy tomatoes. When the dish came it was cold and the tomatoes still looked like then were not cooked. There was barely a full tablespoon of farro! Then the waiter came and handed me a basil sauce that is normally already on the dish to add to my dish! What! When I asked him for more farro he seemed annoyed! I ordered it that way, why was he getting annoyed? It took so long for the farro to be broght to me that i asked for a box to take the whole meal home as it was Ice cold by now. Ugh. When we asked for more hot water for our hot tea, the server grunted! Why? We are having a dinner out and wanted to enjoy the evening! To have such terrible service and food was so disapointing from a restaurant that we normally know will be amazing! This location needs to get it together!

Went to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner last night. When we arrived it took about 5-10 minutes to be seated. Mind you there was nobody in-front of us when we arrived. As we are being seated there were plenty of empty booths. Seems like poor manager skills. The table was still wet from someone cleaning it off. The silverware looked as if it was quickly washed as I still had some piece of food dried on to my fork. We ordered our food and just as we were finishing our bread our food arrived. Great timing and the food was hot. So this made it all better until I started eating. I ordered the Californian steak and cheese and my girlfriend ordered the smokehouse burger. Her burger was great, cooked perfect only complaint was the bottom bun was soggy and fell apart no big deal. My cheese steak on the other hand was not so great. One half was a cheese steak the other half was a cheese, pepper and onion. You get more meat in a 6" sub from subway for a 3rd the price. Overall the experience was sub par to other cheesecake factories. The waitress was decent, very quick on refiling our drinks but also very quick with taking our order and bringing us our check. I would feel safe assuming the manager is all about turning tables fast and it clearly shows in his employees. Almost a ok you're done eating great now get up. Our total time there was maybe 25-30 minutes.

Food was good, like all other cheesecake factory locations. The interior beautiful. The service took forever. I know I went with a large group (14 people), but it shouldn't take 0.5 hours to come get our order, then 1 hour for our food to come out.
