Every Christmas my family generously gives me gift cards to local eateries and entertainment spots. I get to spend the month of January enjoying them.
This week my husband and I lunched at The Cheesecake Factory in Kierland Commons. They are located on Scottsdale Road right next to Crate & Barrel. Self-parking can be difficult because of the many restaurants and stores in the shopping center. The good news is The Cheesecake Factory offers complimentary valet service so be sure to have your ticket validated before leaving the restaurant.
If you bring the kiddos be aware they don’t offer crayons and a coloring book so be sure to take something to entertain them. (Or do you let them watch SpongeBob on your cell phone when they get restless too?)
Outdoor seating is available but you don’t want to miss the ambiance. The Cheesecake Factory is known for their distinctive décor which includes decorative columns, artwork, cherry wood, and handblown light fixtures.
Once seated you’ll want to take your eyes off the surroundings and peruse the whopping twenty one page menu that boasts more than two hundred items made from scratch daily. As if that didn’t provide enough variety, they keep their menu fresh by updating it twice a year. Of all of the times I’ve visited The Cheesecake Factory I’ve never ordered the same entree twice and I’ve never been disappointed with my meal.
Whatever you order, be sure to save room for one of their decadent desserts, which includes thirty flavors of cheesecake.
If you’re planning an event they can do the catering or you can take advantage of their dining room capable of seating up to 35 guests. You can enjoy brunch on Sundays between 10am and 2pm or use their take-out or curbside service anytime during business hours. Whenever you visit, The Cheesecake Factory won’t disappoint.
