I tell all my friends that this place is more than a place to get great cheesecake. From entrees to salads to pasta to cheesecake you wont be disappointed. Only issue is the long wait times so go before you are actually hungry.

Union Square
Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army
in the Civil War, this grand square has become the
city's premier shopping and entertainment district
containing the largest number of upscale department
stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theatres in
the city. It's a large open area where tourists and
locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by,
enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and

You can call in advance but I don't think they take reservations. The best time to go is around 6 pm after that it gets really crowded. Enjoy!!!!
