    So impressed last night at CF! They made special pasta and Alfredo sauce for my celiac daughter. The manager came to our table numerous times to check on us and totally understood the severity of cross contamination. They gave her a huge bowl of whipped cream for dessert, for free!

    not all items Are gluten free so be careful ie the Cobb salad listed in their GF menu with Blue Cheese by some peoples standards one could argue Cheesecake Factory should not be listed as GF. I've had few issues not always GF however

    I started working for this company 6 months ago and as part of my training they had me taste the food. When I informed them of my gluten allergy they made sure everything I ate was safe. They have a decent size gluten free menu and the staff are well informed on what is safe. There are even sundaes and a cheesecake safe for those who can't have gluten. The only thing I would be cautious of would be the fries. They are fried in their own fryer but it's next to other items that have flour. I've yet to have a reaction from eating the food and I love the options.

    The food was good and I didn't get sick, but the lack of education and knowledge of the staff is highly concerning. I waited for a couple days to see if I got sick, which was pure luck when I didn't, I believe.

    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.

    Huge gluten free menu...wish server knew about CD and cross-contamination. Ordered and brought out a salad with glutenous croutons. Had to send back. Then a new one came out and we found chips of nail polish in it!!!! Manager came out to investigate but this shouldn't happen...poor quality service and they weren't busy. When you get sick from gluten and explain to a server and they are still careless. Very sad!!!

    The Cheesecake Factory does have a gluten free menu. They offer burgers with gluten free bun and gluten free pasta to name a few. Before they started offering the GF menu I would order the Lemon roasted chicken. They don't use a separate kitchen so it's possible for cross contamination.

    I've been twice in the past two weeks. I was told that the Cheesecake Factory cane out with gluten free selections a couple of months ago. They have a 6 page gf menu. A wonderful selection of items including appetizers, salad, sandwiches, burgers, pasta, French fries, and cheesecake. I am someone that gets very sick from a small bite of gluten. I've had no problems. My husband also is gf and loved it.

    The two star rating is for the gourmet salads and gluten-free Godiva cheesecake only. Found gluten pasta mixed in in my pasta dish so that was the end of my dinner. The manager took it off the check, told me I should not eat there if I have celiac and didn't even apologize. Before we ever went in, the kitchen manager told me via phone they used clean water for gluten-free pasta, but the manager we encountered at the place said that was not true and never had been. I'll go back for take-out cheesecake - nothing else!

    The waiter did such a poor job managing my gf/cf requests that he ducked out and had someone else get my order right 25 minutes after my kids already had their food. I am celiac and fear the violent sick reaction from gluten or dairy. Not just a fad diet. This place gave me no feeling of confidence.

    The waitress refused to get the list of ingredients for us for any menu items. The "gluten free" fries are fried in the same fry oil as the rest of their fried foods. We were told the only thing that would be safe for us to order is their salad or a grilled meat. As much as our 2 and 4 year old would love a salad for dinner we didn't feel like paying $80 for that. Sad because all they would need is a dedicated frier and any person with celiac would be happy.

    the gfree godiva cheesecake is killer but the rest of my meal.... not so much. the gluten-free menu is great but when I was ready to order I found out the fries are NOT gluten free because it's a shared frier.... even though they're listed as gluten free. my burger was just okay and the bun was super dry. They have loads of choices but be careful!
