Typical Chessecake Factory experience but eight stories up. While waiting for a table step out onto the balcony behind the check in station for a great view of Union Square. Makes for a fun lunch spot.

We walked away from the Cheesecake Factory in Livermore, CA the night before because it did not meet the classic Cheesecake Factory experience. So, I was please to have this experience in SF. Only a 20 min wait to be seated and decent service. If anything, service was a bit slow but laid-back and staff were kind and considerate. Would... More

Pop up to the roof of Macy's for a Margarita (yum) and snacks. Take in the incredible view of the city and the Square while looking through the giant M!

The Cheesecake Factory is great! Our favourite was the Louisiana Chicken Pasta which has a big piece of chicken with a slight kick to it and is really yummy. The desserts are great and so are the cocktails.

We were happy to wait an hour for our table and excited to be eating at the Cheesecake factory, however, we didn't realize it would be over an hour to wait for our meals once seated. We had 3 different people serving, Think our orders may have been forgotten. Needed to ask for cutlery, food was cold. A really disappointing... More

This restaurant is part of a substantial chain and produces really good dishes at reasonable prices. It has a full menu, not just cheesecake. It is not fine dining and the portions are hearty. It is an extensive menu, so be ready to think hard! They catered for my vegan daughter and we all had a superb dinner. The cheesecake... More

If you have never been to a Cheesecake Factory then take the chance. On Union Square in a typical statement building. Fast before you go and don't plan any meals after - even a salad looks the size of a shrubbery when it arrives. The cheesecakes are not like you get in the UK and nor is the range of... More

We ate here on our first night in San Francisco. We had the steak medallions and the garlic shrimp from the skinny menu. These are just great options anywhere you go. It was a long wait but that's expected for Union square. Service was good and food was enjoyable.
