Was out apartment hunting with a friend and worked up an appetite so we popped into the Cheesecake Factory for lunch. As usual, they didn't disappoint. Loved the service, Olivia attended to our every need. I hate that they got rid of the Dutch Apple Cheesecake but you can't win them all. Our food was well prepared and tasted great.... More

I brought my niece here for dinner because I knew they had a decent kids menu. My 10-year old niece is a picky but mature eater for her age as evidenced by her dinner choice: salmon, mashed potatoes (instead of French fries) and steamed broccoli. I ordered the shrimp and cappelini entree from the skinnylicious menu and my husband ordered... More

We had lunch at the Cheesecake Factory earlier today. It wasn't crowded so seating was easy. The menu is huge but cheesecake is the highlight. My salad was very good but the hazelnut chocolate cheesecake was great. Cheesecake Factory is generally good and consistent. This location is no exception.

Went with my wife on a Wednesday around 2:30. There was no crowd open seating, wait staff was lighter but service was still the same. I really don't like waiting for this restaurant and have left on many occasions when the wait is over 40 minutes. This is nice. Not waiting no crowd but the same excellent food. We were... More

This place is so ridiculously overrated. The food is average. The service is awful. We ate there for lunch and waited 30 minutes from the time waiter took our order. Frankly, I believe he totally forgot to take our order. A lunch for 3 came to $50. Total ripoff and nothing but a gimmick chain.

Visited Fair Oaks Cheesecake Factory for a late lunch. Hostess was personable and immediately greeted us. We were seated in a booth centrally located in the restaurant. We had the thai chicken lettuce wraps to start. Loved the grilled chicken, crunchy carrots, cucumbers & sprouts with mixture of sauces. Filling starter. Our main entrees includes skinnylicious steak medallions with tomatoes,... More

I love this Cheesecake Factory. I have never had a bad meal or service. I prefer this restaurant to the one in Potomac Mills.

We ate a late lunch here after touring the Pentagon and Arlington National Cemetery and the food and service were both good. The food was served quickly and it was all hot and fresh tasting. No complaints on this visit.

Son had herb salmon which was delicious. I hand shrimp on angel hair and was not impressed. Shrimp was over cooked and dry, but portion enough for four people.
