this is one of those places that diluted their efforts too much. their menu is waaaay too big and the quality of the food suffers because of it. Its one of those menus that really hype up the description of their food and they really try to make everything sound so creative and awesome. but the reality is that most of the food is whatevers those are the bad things i have to say about that place. SO...after coming here for many many years...and after being dissatisfied for many many years I have finally tried just about EVERYTHING on the menu. and so, although 95% of their food is so-so, they do have 1 or 2 dishes that are actually really GREAT. My favorite dish is the chicken farfalla. This is actually a very very tasty dish which no other restaurant has been able to match. Their are MANY other restaurants out there that have a cream based pasta with peas and pancetta but nothing like Cheesecakes. I think they just got this ONE dish right. maybe its the roasted garlic cloves or grilled chicken breast or sun dried tomatoes. whatever it is....they hit near perfection. Now, the caveat to that is that the only way i order it is by telling them to make it spicy (adding crushed red pepper during the cooking process) and adding jumbo grilled shrimp. So i guess, between their recip and me kicking it up a notch they really hit a grand slam with this dish. And the squaw bread is excellent. Everythign else they serve is just filler.

Love The Cheesecake Factory. Everything I have ordered I have loved. This is one of my favorite chain resturants. The meals are consistantly good, and the value is incredible. You can always count on an excellent dinning experience at The Cheesecake Factory.
