Cheesecake Factory: "More than a great cheesecake!" Cheesecake Factory Tip by Cruiseone2003

Cheesecake Factory, San Francisco: 13 reviews and 20 photos

  The Cheesecake Factory lobby, San Francisco CA

I like the Cheesecake factory because the menu variety seems to satisfy everyone from the vegetarian to the carnivore; the Union Square Location is a bonus.
They have an awesome bar and make a great martini! You can have appetizers or cheesecake at the bar or dine in one of two dining rooms; one is inside and the other is outside and overlooks Union Square and SF skyscrapers.
The service is friendly and quick, the food is tasty. This place can get very busy especially on a holiday. It's also open late at night. This restaurant is perfect for tourists since it's in Union Square but not so touristy that locals would not like it.

Favorite Dish: So many to choose from but what I have tried so far is the Steak Diane which was very nice. Yesterday's meal (1/6/2008) was the SPICY CRISPY CHICKEN SANDWICH
Crispy Coated Chicken Breast Covered with Melted Cheese and
Either Our Spicy Buffalo Sauce or Chipotle Pepper Mayo.
Served on a Brioche Bun with Fries. You can substitue a salad for the fries at no charge. Washed it down with a nice Sam Adams, tax and tip was $20

Don't forget to save room for the cheesecake!
