This location is always busy but they do a great job of providing good service. Amazing cheesecake, the menu goes on forever so everytime I go I can try something new. All of the dishes i've had have been very good to great. The wait for a table can sometimes be discouraging so try and go early.
Ventured over to Walnut Creek's Cheesecake Factory on a Thursday afternoon (9/17/09) w/ colleague to cash in our coupon recv'd from National Cheesecake Day...another great lunch @ CF for us! <br> <br>LOCATION: Downtown Walnut Creek...intersection of Locust St & Olympic Blvd. Public free parking garage in same block, else street ""metered"" parking. Restaurant size (as previously reviewed) larger than Pleasanton & SF locations. Roomy, spacious, & clean dinning areas inside & outdoor patio; large outdoor patio w/ plenty heat lamps from above. Welcoming to folks of all sizes & very handicap friendly. <br> <br>CUST SVC: Great service once again for this location! Greeted immediately & warmly by hostess, seated in 1-2 minutes in outdoor patio, & thorough-friendly service by our waiter-Jack. Jack points out CF has added a new menu-page to their ""booklet of food"" called ""Small Plates & Snacks"" (Lordy!). Cooks did a great job on food, & overall atmosphere of service was on point. Keep up the great work team ;-) <br> <br>TASTES: So colleague & I really just wanted to utilize our coupon spend $30 & get free a free Cheesecake. Thinking we'd just share some appetizers, she picked out the perfect item...the ""Factory Appetizer Favorites"" for $28, which was 4 appetizer plates. <br> <br>Plate 1: Sweet Corn Tamale Cakes & Quesadilla <br>Plate 2: Shrimp Summer Rolls, & Spinach N Cheese Dip <br>Plate 3: Avocado Egg Rolls & Fried Calamari <br>Plate 4: Pork & Chicken Pot Stickers *GET THESE* <br> <br>Everything was enjoyable & more than fulfilling; yes we asked for 2 carry out containers *tee-hee*. Only thing not really tasty to me was the Avocado Egg Rolls...U have to love avocado to enjoy this; next time I'll ask if we can substitute them for the Southwestern Egg Rolls *yummy*. <br> <br>FINAL TAB: Cost us like $34 & change for 1 ice tea & 1 app (""Factory Appetizer Favorites""). Everything tasted gets a recommendation w/ the exception of the Avocado Egg Rolls. Customer service, food, & ambiance setting made for a another great lunch & a ""tasty"" review for this CF location *tee-hee*
