Cheesecake Factory Peoria, AZ: "Good Cheesecake" Cheesecake factory Tip by AVSENT

Cheesecake factory, Phoenix: 3 reviews and 2 photos

  Cheescake Factory

The restaurant itself was a large place-just like a factory. Very high ceiling but, designed perhaps, like a house or mansion. It was late afternoon or early evening on a labor day weekend and it wasn't to busy yet. The menu was endless, especially the choices of cheesecake.
I ordered a steak diane with shrimp scampi; it came with garlic mashed potatoes-nothing else. So, I got a side of green beans (it was a large portion-so were the potatoes). Everything was prepared fine-but, it just didn't hit the spot. Things seemed a little bland or under seasoned. Things started out ok, with the fried artichokes. This appetizer was great with the sauces they had. There was bread and that went well dipped in the artichoke sauce (really good sauces). That might have been the problem- after that my tasted buds couldn't get enough out of the meal. There was shrimp in sauce and steak grilled with sauce but, it still seemed somewhat bland. I was surprised to see iced green tea (I really crave this stuff) but, it was mixed with mint and really killed the taste of the tea.
Anyway, I ordered raspberry and chocolate cheesecake and it was the best part of the whole meal.
They really know how to make this stuff. I really don't care much for cheesecake (it's usually made too, rich) but, this stuff was great. Just the right richness and mix of flavors.
I really expected a better experience for the money but, the cheesecake was worth it. The other downside- had to keep waiting for the waiter to return and it took almost 20 mins just to get the cheesecake to the table.

Favorite Dish: Cheescake made just right.
