This place is smaller than the other locations, but the meals are always good. Service is good. There is no parking....you'll have to pull into a lot or use their valet. It's located right in the heart of old town Pasadena.

My husband and I once again thought we would endure weekend crowds on a Sunday afternoon and eat a late lunch at The Cheesecake Factory in Pasadena. It seems that no matter when a person goes there to eat anymore, it is always packed. There is always a wait. With that being said, with so many people it causes a... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants. They have a variety of foods on their menu and everything we have eaten is delish! We started with ahi tartare. I do no like raw fish, but this I will eat. It's not fishy whatsoever and the sauce is very yummy. For dinner I had the Thai Salmon, always a winner for... More

Location was excellent, however, food and service was average, you need to wait at anytime for few minutes before getting the attention of the waiters. As far as changing the plates is concerned and if you do not ask them to change them, you wouldn't get their attention. The crispy calamari was so oily, the salads is of a huge... More

Stopped for lunch - only in homage to Penny from Big Bang Theory (we're fans and it's set in Pasadena - which we didn't realise until we got there!) so we went for a bit of a joke and to eat cheesecake but we're pleasantly surprised. It was a Monday lunchtime but the place was buzzing. We got a table... More

We were there for happy hour so after drinks and two appetizers we were ready for the walk back to our hotel room. This is now my favorite place when back in Vegas for happy hour. I suggest the happy hour burger with bacon and one or two Long Island ice teas. This was an enjoyable evening with great service!

Being a Friday night, the restaurant was really busy, but this wasn't a problem at all - we put our name down and then went for a 15/20 minute walk around the block. The menu is so huge but we would recommend the super antioxidant salad, french country salad both to be washed down with a peach smoothie. We were... More

We were there the night before the Rose Parade. It was a busy weekend. The food was excellent and service terrific. I've never had a bad meal at this chain restaurant.

Always an extensive menu and large portions just as any other locations, but the service made the difference. Gustavo was our server and continually checked with us. Try the ultimate margarita, pot stickers, and the Asian salad. Would order them all again. A public valet is located just outside.
