If you like WAY overpriced BLAND food & a lazy waiting/cleanup staff, then this its right up your alley...otherwise DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME OUR MONEY (at this particular Cheesecake Factory) - 2 Thumbs WAY down (BTW, giving this restaurant 1 star is highly over rating it)

I went here for the first time this weekend. My family and I were enjoying the Plaza lights, and thought we'd grab a quick bite. Unfortunately, they don't take reservations, and when we went in at five, the wait was already an hour to an hour and a half! However, it ended up taking almost two hours to be seated. My salad was tasty, but my fiance's ribs were just terrible. They were described in the menu as ""fall off the bone,"" but I actually was unable to wrench the meat off the bone to have a taste. I was able to cut it off with a steak knife. Anyway, when we mentioned it to our waitress, she didn't do anything about it! I wish she would have offered him something else, or at least given us a discount. Based on my one experience, I don't think I'll be back. There are so many better options in the area!

I had no problem with the crowds. It did have noise, but some people like that. There wasn't a problem with hearing anyone in your party. Yes I did have to wait, but there are so many people its fun to people watch while you wait. You can order half portions, but I'm not complaining when I get to take home a nice dinner for later. The food was great and the service was just as good. The number of people and level of noise on the inside doesn't make it very romantic. If that's what you are looking for then you should ask to be seated outside and away from the main doors. After I read some of the reviews on the service I'd like to point out that it's a very busy and very big place. Your waitress is only human and can have a bad day too.

great - absolutely great -been three times now, one in a large crowd, once with family and one just two of us. Crabcak sandwish brilliant, desert to die for and I do not eat desert!! Both times had less than 30 minutes to wait - both at Saturday Dinner time. Menu was so extensive that is what took the most time -to read through it all!

If only their extensive (and I mean extensive) menu could be as tasty as their signature cheesecakes...they would hit a home run. The drinks are good, the jambalaya was ordered heavy on the spice, but still turned up bland, with all- purpose pasta underneath. Major annoyance. The tuna sandwich was quite nice, as was the chicken romano. Nice-yes. Spectacular-no. Desserts are their mainstay. The strawberry cheesecake & the vanilla bean cheesecake were both HEAVENLY. Come for the dessert, tolerate the average dinner.

Once you've waited through the 2hrs it takes to get a table. you could get stuck with one of the crabbie waiters or you get a super waiter. Then you get your food which is either amazing or you could have had better. But if you don't get any cheesecake then you just wasted the entire meal.

Although the Cheesecake Factory is a destination location on the famous Country Club Plaza, its a very busy place....and its two story design is VERY loud. Portions are big enough to share on most dishes, and plan on spending plenty if ordering cheesecake that is simply decadant. The Cobb salad is the best on KC, but the chicken and biscuits is better than what Grandma used to make.

I have made several trips to the Cheesecake Factory and I still cannot figure out why so many people choose it as one of the best KC date restaurants. The food is good, but the restaurant has been terribly crowded and loud on each of my trips there. I suppose two people could get to know eachother well waiting the hour and a half to two hours to be seated...
