    I debated about eating at the bar because bartenders sometimes get annoyed about food allergies. With a long wait for a table, we decided to give it a try. The bartender was AWESOME! He pressed all of the food allergy buttons when he put my order in and then, went to the kitchen to discuss my allergies with the chef.

    Good gf menu but when I asked about gf and dairy free dressing options she changed her mind twice.. It almost led to a mixup and then she asked how serious my allergy was because she didn't want me to faint. More training is needed.

    They just debuted the GF menu at some of the Cheesecake Factory restaurants. The Tysons location has the menu, and it is a great menu -- lots of options, even pasta (they have GF fusili). However, I would definitely exercise caution here. I ordered Evelyn's pasta with the GF fusili and found a piece of regular pasta mixed in my dish. They clearly do not have their act together on cross-contamination and safety issues for those who need to be GF.

    Not large selection but you can request certain items to be made gluten free - they don't have a separate menu just a small symbol near the foods that are - unfortunately only 1 cheesecake is gluten and it's chocolate chocolate and more chocolate

    EDIT January 19: Although a few dishes are clearly marked GF, servers seem to be very inconsistently trained on the subject. Fries are supposedly gluten free, but I was told they are only available when there is a clean fryer available. Was also told during my previous visit that the sauce on my burger wasn't safe, but this time I was assured the same sauce was indeed safe. East here at your own risk, because I sure don't trust them. Get your shit straight, Cheesecake Factory. ------------- Hadn't gone here in a while, because they couldn't seem to find me something gluten free off their menu. Well, apparently they've got a new menu with clearly marked GF items and options now! Also, GF hamburger buns and gluten free fries! Americana Cheeseburger A++! Will go again!

    Gf notated on menu. Waiter seemed willing to make accommodations (asking for pasta to be boiled in separate water) but I don't know if that is normal policy if not requested.

    Amazing food as always. They have a good variety of gluten free foods, which I was very thankful for. I ordered a GF cheeseburger and GF fries, which was so good, however I had a bad reaction, I think just from cross contamination. It happens, for it's not celiac certified, so I took my chances. I probably will go there again because I appreciate them trying to accommodate us gluten intolerant! Just be wary if you have celiacs.

    Cheesecake Factory is the worst gluten free place I have ever been to. They use same pots and pans a water for pasta. They don't know what's gluten they put croutons even in gluten free salads.

    This a great gf place for family or date night. You do need to be on your toes as I've had tiny discrepancies with orders before but overall a great place to eat out. If they make a mistake they bend over backwards to fix it. I am genuinely sad they stopped serving the eggplant glamburger. The tamale appetizer platter is amazing. They recently combined their gf menu with their regular menu. They have a gf Godiva cheesecake.

    Lots of gluten free options including pasta, turkey burgers, hamburgers, chicken and beef entrees. Drawback: soups and appetizers are not gluten free. Only gluten free cheesecake is Godiva Chocolate, luckily my favorite, i am a chocoaholic. I always get great service there. Cross contamination can happen, they do not have a completely gluten free kitchen section.

    Had a turkey burger with mashed potatoes subbed for fries because the waiter said they use a community frier (despite the menu marking fries as "gf upon request"). Looked and tasted like an Udi's bun. I was really hungry and it hit the spot!

    I really hate it when someone has one bad experience (usually with a server, not the restaurant) and leaves a terrible review. The thing is, if you're celiac, it's going to be hard to trust ANYONE. And in my opinion, any efforts by a restaurant to move toward gluten-free should be celebrated. There are a ton of us (myself included) that are very sensitive, but not to the point of celiac. And for me, I really appreciate these restaurants adding items I can eat. And many of them end up taking them away because of the complaints about their one or two bad experiences. This isn't how to go about having your issues understood. Offer suggestions, not complaints, and in a friendly manner. I loved the gfree options at Cheesecake Factory and had no issues.

    They changed the GF menu to a regular menu that lists what can be made GF. We ordered two Caesar salads and two kids pastas. The salads were served with croutons!! Our girl with Celiac was sick the next morning after eating the pasta. Stay away.

    Nice gluten-free menu, even a gluten-free cheesecake! Charles helped us and was very good. They do have a separate fryer for gluten free fries, and the kitchen knows to guard against cross-contamination. We eat at Cheesecake Factory restaurants all over the country several times a month and have never had a problem with gluten.

    We had a great time! Melinda was terrific, very knowledgeable on the menu and the gluten free items which are easy to find on their regular menu. She asked if we wanted bread, and suggested a toasted gluten free burger bun as a gluten-free bread option. My wife had the gluten free pasta with chicken and roasted garlic and loved it! She ordered the Godiva (gluten free) cheesecake to go and loved that too! We look forward to seeing Cheesecake Factory restaurants wherever we go!

    Staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. Ordered a pasta dish gluten free, and asked them to start a fresh pot of water to avoid cross contamination. They have a separate area for food prep, and I didn't get sick. Food could have been a bit more heavily seasoned, but otherwise great meal, and heated up leftovers for dinner!

    I just ate "gluten free pasta" and I couldn't even finish my plate when my stomach start yelling STOP!; of course I speak to the manager and they didn't charge us for the meal, but he asked me things like: what kind of pasta was on the plate? Did you find any penne (gluten) or just Fussily (non gluten); because there's a chance when they serving the pasta, some slip off, sooooo what your saying is that you use the same utensils at the same time for different pastas? I think it is very irresponsible for them to assure you they have gluten free options, and that they know what they're doing when they clearly don't. So I would not be returning there, And I think that if you can't handle being gluten free, don't do it; we'll be happy to eat somewhere else.

    So disappointed with the Cheesecake Factory. After reading all the 'gluten free options' on their website I was really looking forward to going there. However the majority of dishes seemed to be subject to cross contamination e.g the French fries are cooked in the same oil as gluten containing fried food and the pasta is boiled in the same pot as gluten pasta, I did question this and the waitress was not at all knowledgeable or sympathetic and there was no offer of simply using a different pan to cook the pasta .... Surely they have more than one pan!!

    They went from having no options to having tons of options. They have a whole gluten-free menu now which includes pasta! I didn't feel like I was the gluten-free person at the table. I just felt like I was out to dinner with my family. The staff could be a bit more knowledgable though. More training on allergies. It's not enough to just try when someone has Celiac. No room for error.

    I used to go to Cheesecake Factory all the time because they had a pretty good gluten free menu. But a few weeks ago they completely re-designed their menu and many of the GF options were eliminated (Bring back the eggplant sandwich!!). They currently have GF buns but they're not listed on the new menu at all. That makes me think they will only be available until the current stock runs out. Very disappointing.

    Cheesecake Factory has GF? We wandered in just to check and yes they do. I had the American burger. Excellent. Best gluten free burger I've had. And the price is great for Waikiki. About $12. I've had cheaper but those were bunless. I loved it. Ate every bite! Most places and even at home I have leftover bun that isn't very good on it's own. This burger had so much even the last bite had sauce and cheese. So yummy!!

    I was worried about going here because a friend of mine said don't because you'll get sick. I changed my mind after the reviews here. So I went. There isn't a separate menu but items are marked GF. I ordered the Gf version of the ribeye steak. I told the waitress I had a gluten allergy. She then asked me if I wanted the fried onion rings. She clearly didn't understand what GF meant. And I was nervous but still ordered. Although she wrote it down I still received a dish that wasn't gf. I didn't realize it until half way through it. 2 days later I'm still feeling the effects. I will not return there

    I have eaten at 3 different locations and gotten sick every time. I ordered pasta the last 2 times and they both came out with Gluten noodles. The 2nd time I caught it before eating. they were nice about it. But it was kinda frustrating to me because I told the waiter that I would get very sick if I ate it and she said she would tell the chef to be careful. The GF menu is a good size and has good options. The food was good besides the fact that I got sick. There chefs could use more training on GF. If you are risky enough it has good food. Just becareful. Hope this helps

    We tried to order and eat from the Cheesecake Factory gf menu options, but first the burger came out on a regular bun, then an hour later a second attempt came with fries (not gf) instead of the salad ordered. And, there was a piece of some kind of chicken in the burger! The salad I ordered was supposed to be gf, but I am having a horrible gluten reaction... Don't trust this restaurant if you are a celiac!

    Last time I went they were so uneducated (even the chef who came out and thought rice was "made of wheat") it was scary. They keep saying they are coming out with a GF menu but it hasn't happened so I haven't been back. One of the cheesecakes (Godiva) is naturally GF though.
