While being very glad it is finally making its way to Toronto I have a feeling the portion size to price ratio will not match the US locations which would kind of defeat the purpose of going to a Cheesecake Factory. Hopefully I'm wrong about this. I still expect it to be completely slammed regardless though.
SPOOOOOOOOOOOONN!!!!...

Yep. I'm also sure prices will reflect that too,

Hopefully we are wrong-ish.

Great food, and the World's biggest menu when it comes to choices... Truly something for everyone's tastes / cravings

Will be interesting to see what a Cdn version looks like in terms of:

(a) Portion size. US Stores have GIGANTIC portions... Never can eat it all. Really really excessive. And if one is travelling and does not have the option of taking home the rest to reheat / eat the next day. Overall Cdns tend to want smaller portions, sometimes we see these American supersizes as unnecessary / wasteful, wondering if the brand will make adjustments here for that.

(b) Costing. Wonder what they will charge here per plate vs in the US ... Whether they keep portion sizes the same or not.

Been a long time coming. This place will be ram packed once it opens until the hype dies down. There are people that haven't ever been to TCF and they don't travel out of town. So there will be lots of "first timers" waiting in the lines. If the prices and portion sizes are in line with the US locations then I'll visit. Chicken Bellagio, Steak Diane, Kobe Beef Burger, Vanilla Bean Cheesecake, Fresh Banana Cream Cheesecake are the best items.

I feel like the prices will be 50%-100% higher... they have to be at least 30% higher, given our crappy dollar. Then add the fact they are in Yorkdale with an insane demand.

Assuming quantity and quality stay exactly the same as in the US, I don't think this place will die down for a long while. At least not until they expand to other areas.
