There was only one vegan option. Please add more options.

With only one vegan option, a fake meat burger, I was very disappointed. They have a veggie burger patty that was very good so I substituted that in place of the fake meat patty. That helped get me through the night. But I won’t be back if that’s all they’ve got. I would encourage them to expand their vegan offerings.

Pros: We lucked out by having a server who understood.

Cons: Only one vegan offering.

Delicious and great portions

They offer more than one vegan option. First time we both got the Buger, it was delicious, fresh and hot! Next time, I asked the waitress if 'Evelyn's favourite pasta' would be vegan without cheese, she checked with the chef and assured me it was. When bringing our food she clarified it was Pasta without cheese which was reassuring. Also, both times the staff have been outstanding!
We will definitely be back multiple times during our trip.

Pros: Delicious options , Great portions, Friendly, helpful staff

Cons: Often has a line

Impossible Burger

The Cheesecake Factory here in Hawaii has the impossible burger with vegan cheese and vegan Mayo. It was delicious and for an appetizer we had the avocado toast which was very impressive and delicious. I was surprised that there were tasty options for us vegans but yes we can now enjoy a burger at Cheesecake Factory. No vegan cheesecake yet but maybe one day soon

deep fried :/

Ordered pita and hummus but they deep fried the heck out of the pita bread and I wanted to throw up. What a waste of money. Had they just served the pita itself, it would have been fine.

Pros: 2 options only

Cons: only 2 vegan options, 1 option was all fried. The other is cold

new “impossible” burger!!

I was a bit skeptical about coming here due to the mixed reviews but was pleasantly surprised to see they have the “impossible” burger as a menu option! I asked the waiter to confirm it’s vegan, they came back saying yes if ordered with no sauce on the burger. It was AMAZING! Probably one of the best vegan burgers I’ve ever had, hands down. And went back a few days later and ordered again! They must have recently updated their menu with new items as this has not been mentioned in previous reviews. Be warned that waiting times for a table during dinner peak time can be long, we waited 40mins last night but didn’t bother us.

Pros: helpful staff for guidance

Cons: long wait times for table availability

A few options

Very useful waitress that pointed me towards the vegan options. The bread they bring to the table is vegan, the vegan Cobb salad is fantastic. They also have an impossible burger, and apparently a few pasta dishes can be made vegan. Would be cool to see more options, especially a vegan cheesecake.

A couple of options for vegans

Not a bad place to go if with a larger group around 10 options for vegans if you remove the cheese etc...
I like them have an offer means there accomodating with time and demand becomes betters menus

Pros: Big size portions , Accomodating for substitution

Cons: There buns have egg not vegan , Burgers need to be made as salads , Just offer a normal bread rol

Few Vegan Options

The vegan cobb salad, avocado toast and edamame were the only vegan options on the menu. The burger buns are not vegan and the only alternative is lettuce. I had the salad which was okay, about what you'd expect from the Cheesecake Factory.

Pros: Fast service

Cons: No falafels, Noisy
