5Angelica Cesar G. 1 year agoUsually not a place we go when traveling, but was pleasantly surprised! Recommend going with the specials! 1. Because it is not available anywhere else and 2. It was so tasty, healthy, filling! Only concern, but did not think it worthy to remove a whole star… Even though our server was great we had to remind him to refill our waters.
5Kaari A. 1 year agoHappy Hour is always a vibe here. Friendly and attentive staff, the same trustworthy mood-lit atmosphere of the Cheesecake Factory, with that gorgeous Waikiki beach breeze. My partner and I enjoyed delicious tropical beverages here and were good to go after just one drink each! The nachos and avocado eggrolls are fantastic vegetarian/vegan options, along with many other menu items. Looking forward to going back for another Big Island Iced Tea!
5Eden C. 1 year agoSunday, arrived before 6pm and got a table right away. We had 12oz rib eye steak and bistro shimp pasta. Medium cooked steak is just right. The pasta is so good! Friendly staff too.
5Bihter A. 1 year agoI must say that it was the best restaurant in Waikiki. Tried many within our 11 days stay. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert... Top quality. Great assistance by the waiters and waitresses.
5Matt L. 1 year agoHonestly, one of the best Fettuccini Alfredo's I've had at any Cheesecake Factory or restaurant. This one was seasoned very well, very saucy, noodles were cooked right. Everything was perfect this time around. Very airy and roomy inside; only downside was the birds roaming around by your feet inside. It was annoying having them brush against you while you're trying to have dinner. Other than that, good experience.
5Jennifer F. 1 year agoSuper friendly staff, short wait to be seated and our food came out quickly. The ambiance of the restaurant is great and in the perfect location. It was a quick walk from our hotel/resort
5A. 1 year agoWe got a table after reserving a table and waiting an hour at before 6:30pm on a Saturday evening when everything was opening back up after the pandemic, which wasn't bad. After we placed our appetizer orders (Fried Calamari and Fried Mac and Cheese balls), our appetizers arrived after 10 minutes. We placed our main course orders and received in another 10 minutes. We had a party of seven, so all of our food came at once, so no one was waiting for their food. I ordered the Shepherd's Pie and for dessert, I got the Caramel Apple Cheesecake. No one's water was empty for more than a couple of minutes since the wait staff made their rounds pretty diligently, and soft drinks were refilled pretty quickly once they were notified of it. From my party, no one had any complaints of their food, and some of us were so stuffed that we brought home a couple bags of unfinished food in to-go containers. We had to transfer our own food dishes from the plates to the containers - I don't know if that's how they did it prior to this pandemic, or it was the way because of it. I don't usually go out to eat at a restaurant like this, and I don't know where it stands on how fancy it is, but what I do know is that I'll be coming back when I'm either in the neighborhood (Waikiki is a far drive from my home) or will come back when we are celebrating another social event.
5B. 8 months agoWe had a wonderful dinner on the patio dining area. The waitress was super friendly and really on top off it. The food was delicious. The drinks were pretty, not strong enough (6/10). The drinks at Cheese Burger in Paradise right down the street were much stronger but had no flower decorations.
5Lindsey I. 5 months agoI love that you can enjoy breakfast here all day long When I am craving breakfast for dinner I will always come here . My favorite breakfast for dinner orders are "Breakfast Tacos" and "California Omelette" The servers at this Waikiki location have always been outstanding. I am always very impressed (and appreciative) by the level of service by the wait staff. The hostesses and the cashier's at the cheesecake area , I am not as impressed with. The excellent dine in wait service and the breakfast served all day keeps me coming back for more! This restaurant is extremely popular at dinner time. Best to put your name down , get a wait time and come back when your table is ready. Plan to wait for a dinner table. Park in the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center parking
5Neil M. 5 months agoWhat can you say about this place really other than its amazing. Seriously. It's an amazing place. The location is perfect and the restaurant is very big inside if you wish to escape the busy baking hot street outside. We sat right in at the back and it was a lovely escape from the sun and bustle outside. We went first thing at 11am when they opened. Already a line appeared at 1055am. About ten groups but everyone seated quickly and efficiently with a lot of staff on. The menu is so vast that you wonder if they can cook everything on it well. It seems they can. Delicious food. We sat in the back as I said which was dimly lit and cool and calm. Perfect. Will be back here again for certain. This is the only one I've been to but I imagine other locations of cheesecake factory are similar hopefully.
5Nidhi S. 7 months agoWe have been to many Cheesecake Factory but this stands out with the large collection of sea food. We ordered Fresh coconut Thai chicken and bang bang chicken and shrimp. Flavors were so fresh and really delicious. Portion sizes are huge. Good our hotel had a refrigerator and we got leftovers. Else it’s recommended to order one entree and share that between two or may be club it with an appetizer. Huge seating area, splendid interiors and super fast service. CCF always stands out.
5elle haramis (Elleshungry - I. 8 months agoWE LOVE THIS PLACE!!! The first place we visit when in Honolulu 🌺 The menu is huge as are the serving portions! Everything is always very fresh and the service is fast and superb! Best part - DESSERT of course! Don’t leave without trying a cheesecake, totally worth the calories! 🤭😆
5c. 1 month agoWe got there in time for the lunch size specials. They advised that these are two thirds of the dinner size. This was a lot of food and we couldn’t fit a cheesecake in. Highly recommended as a better cost option. Always busy. Recommend getting in there just before busy times eg early dinner
4Neil G. 1 year agoThis is one of the largest Cheesecake Factory’s I’ve ever been to! For real - it’s as big as an IKEA. (Not really) The meals are always good - and the wait was about 20-45 minutes for a party of 2 during peak times. Amar was our waiter and he was super nice and helpful. Great place!
4Epic W. 3 months agoGreat location with easy walking distance from most hotels. Safe to walk here or back to hotel later at night. Peak periods expect up to an hour wait for dinner so if you can have an earlier one and avoid waiting I recommend that. Staff alway super friendly, water is constantly filled up. Like everywhere they operate on tips at the end of the meal so generally they are going to be ultra helpful. Food portions are huge so honestly you can get a main and share it or even the appetizers are good for sharing. The shakes are delicious but the main show is definitely the cheesecakes. Large selection and you can takeaway. They are very sweet so sharing one is okay 👌. Gave only four stars as on our last trip there we sat partially outside and the birds kept coming in and annoying us. Like everywhere you eat out the prices are a bit high so if on budget share the meals.
4A. 5 months agoIt was looooonnnnggggg day, and a late night dinner situation. We were walking back to our hotel and what do you know... The Cheesecake Factory was good and open. Went in didn't have to wait long at all. Our food assistant for the evening was super nice and we placed our order and it came out really fast. It was hot delicious and the sauce was either really good or I was really hungry. 😆 Overall it was a really nice experience. The atmosphere was social and upbeat. Stop by if you're in the area doing some MAJOR shopping. @according2teau 👽🦄
