Their PPM disclaimer keeps me from giving a Celiac friendly rating, but I am severely gluten sensitive and did not get sick after eating there.
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.
horrible. I specifically said I have celiac and ordered 2 hours ahead and they have me bread and croutons on my salad. went back to get it fixed and asked for just a salad with grilled chicken, they gave me spinach, no lettuce, a tomato, 2 slices of cucumber and no chicken.
Burger on a gluten free bun was great. Fries were also on the gluten free menu - they were so good. Had no problems after eating there.
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!
Super disappointed. Called and talked to kitchen manager, Tiffany, who kept saying the had a gluten free menu. When pressed, she admitted they do not designated fryer and didn't understand why they needed to make gluten-free any differently than their regular menu.
Amazing GF burgers, fries, pasta and cheesecake. Completely seperate menu for Gluten Allergy with a large selection for any meal including breakfast. I have a severe allergy to Gluten and have never had any problems eating here, highly recommended for those looking for delicious GF food and a lot of options.
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.
Cheesecake Factory has gf menu and a gf cheesecake
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!
Large gf menu with a cheesecake option.
Don't eat the fries ever! They have a dedicated fryer that some times gets "mixed up". Also don't order the pasta. Just in general. I have found regular pasta in my pasta before. But if you come at a slow time, it should be ok. BOTTOM LINE....look at how busy they are...that cook is making 30 dishes, will yours be gluten free? Come when it's slow
Multi-plage gluten free men, including several pasta dishes! I got the gf 4 cheese pasta and it was delicious! They even have a gf Godiva chocolate cheesecake! I will definitely be going back. I spoke with the manager when placing my order and he answered all of my questions well.
The Godiva cheesecake is NOT GF, do not fall for that. Too much cross contamination.
I ordered the mushroom burger and fries. They use what most restaurants do for their gluten free buns which is Udis. I don't particularly care for the Udi buns, but the burger was ok. The fries were good and the ranch was great. For desert I ordered the Godiva Chocolate Cheesecake. It was worth coming here by itself. They do offer pasta and salads on their gluten free menu as well.
Guac was a bit too spicy and corn cakes were just ok. Better off getting the arugula or asparagus salad and pasta.
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.
had an awesome waiter that was willing to check on items. cross contamination its very high. best bet go for the burger...the kitchen seems to know how to do that on right.
Finally!! Had my first gf burger here and was excellent!!! Great gf menu too!!
Server was extremely knowledgeable (she has Celiac) and was great about informing me of what was safe and what to avoid. Unfortunately, someone other than her brought my food to the table. I was informed after I took a bite of my burger that the bun was not a gluten free bun. Be advised that their menu changes every 6 months, and what was gluten free before may not be safe now. I was told a few months ago that all the salad dressings were gluten free, but today only one was gluten free. There is no dedicated gluten free fryer.
A very snarky employee told me their food touches all the other gluten food. I asked for a piece of cheese cake and he told me he couldn't get it out without touching it against gluten. I am a realist celiac. I get that it's not a sterile environment but I also know he had food I COULD eat and was not about to try to waste his time. He clearly was irritated with my presence. I left with a lump in my throat. :( super sad.... Worst case scenario celiac service.
I have only been here for drinks and dessert so far. The gf chocolate cheesecake is disgustingly sweet and so rich that neither my boyfriend nor I could make it past half of our slices. However, their vodka martini with blue-cheese-stuffed olives is fantastic in flavor and potency (I had two, and boy are they a doozy). I don't know how gf it is because of the blue cheese, but if you don't have a super duper sensitivity, go for it!
Visiting the area & found they had GF (mine at home 3 yrs ago did not) pleasant surprise! Had pasta with chicken and it was good, corn tamale cakes great! Took home the Godiva cheesecake! No problems. Will revisit mine at home to see if they have GF.
I work at a different Cheesecake Factory so this one might be slightly different. However, I see the most horrible things happen with "gluten free food". I came here cause of a friends birthday choice and ate grilled salmon, which I never have a problem with. But stay away from the pasta and salad dressings. I have found pasta in my eggs, and gluten free pasta. The salad dressings get mixed up all the time. Stick with grilled food!!!
I was impressed! Large GF menu and great vegetarian options, too. I got the grilled eggplant sandwich and it was delicious. Oh, AND THEY HAVE FRIES!!! Hot out of the fryer and perfectly salted. I did have the Godiva cheesecake, which is kept in a case with regular cheesecake, so it was a risk, but I didn't get sick. I ordered takeout from the dessert center and the guys behind the counter took great precaution to prevent cross-contamination, washing hands, changing gloves, and using disposable silverware to get my cheesecake. They didn't want to put whipped cream on it because they said they weren't sure if it was GF and didn't want to make me sick. One of them put my order in and then walked back to the kitchen to reiterate to the chef that I needed the fries made fresh in the GF fryer. I appreciated the care that was taken with my meal. I will go back anytime I am in Nashville.
I recently found they finally created a GF menu and it is as good as the regular menu. A lot of options and well trained staff. One thing they sometimes forget is to offer the GF bun as a welcome bread. A few times, the waiters tried to give me regular bread but when I asked, they quickly found a GF bun for me. It is a pleasure eating here. And they have a Godiva GF cheesecake.
Roommate got the gluten free burger (which is served on gluten free bread) and loved it. The fries were also gluten free. Biggest gluten free menu of anywhere we've been. They only have one cheesecake that's gluten free -- the Godiva chocolate one -- but it's delicious. The only complaint was the wait to be seated. We've never had a wait of less than an hour and usually it's closer to two and a half. Even ordering food to-go takes an hour or more most of the time.
Fantastic, multi-page gluten free menu! Lots of choices from appetizers to desserts. I actually don't like cheesecake, but I tried the Gf cheesecake and it was ok. I love the Shepherd's pie (meaty!) Americana burger (w fried crispy onions) great bun (all gf buns succumb to crumble) and kale-quinoa citrus salad (filling!). The Georgia Peach frozen drink is a must try! Sweet potato fries and regular fries are both tasty. Great service, great (bit noisy) ambiance. Sports bar area too.
Went to the one in Princeton nj. In Quaker town mall today. Was all excited to order off the new gf menu. And when my pasta came I said to the server are you sure this is gluten free? It taste and looks too good. She said yes. Than a free mins. Later the waiter runs over and asks me if its ok that it's not gluten free? Huh? I didn't hear that. The music was kind of loud I thought he was asking me is it ok cause it's not the fuseli pasta it's the angel hair. But my mom herd him and said it louder! No it's not ok! I've been gf for 7 years for a reason! If I wanted to get sick and eat gluten I would choose to eat a croissant !!!! The manager says they dropped the ball. I said they need better training . Lesson , can't trust restaurant service! Great. I asked how am I going to come hear and eat???? Enjoyed the guacamole . Hope the chips were really gf.? Only put the star cause I had to. They should have a better system if there going to provide a gf menu they better actually serve it to you. And put a simple sign for it for Pete sakes! And get better communication!!! It's just not right!
I crave cheesecake like, on the regular. I miss it so much! My favorite flavor is original, hands down. Unfortunately, the only gluten-free cheesecake The Cheesecake Factory offers is their Godiva chocolate cheesecake. It is not labeled gluten-free on the list of cheesecakes, which worried me, but they claim it is safe. I do not think the staff is trained on cross-contamination, as I'm pretty sure they used the same utensil to handle my cheesecake as they did to handle my husband's gluteny one. I avoided the area touched by the utensil and felt fine after eating it, but it didn't satisfy my cheesecake craving. Super rich chocolate may be some people's cup of tea, but I just don't dig it much. I plan to just stick with the little mini gluten-free cheesecakes from Whole Foods from now on.
Gluten free pasta is great! They do have issues with cross contamination but didn't bother me. The gf cheesecake was not gf at all though, but not sure if they gave me the regular slice instead by accident - receipt didn't say gf when I checked after
Gluten free menu but not celiac friendly. Staff not knowledgeable enough to properly serve someone with celiac disease. Plates are always dirty so who knows what was on there. Nice to offer the gluten free menu but they really need to be properly trained in gluten free preparation.
I got the chicken tacos but they were kind of bland.
I can only say one word about this restaurant. HORRIBLE! When I went there I asked if they had anything that was gluten free and the waiter started to make fun of gluten intolerances and celiac. He doesn't believe they shouldn't have food since being gluten free is "retarded". My family and friends have never eaten their again.
I have always loved this place! I was extremely disappointed when I was diagnosed with celiacs that I couldn't eat here anymore. Just recently I found out they have a separate menu for GF and the Godiva Cheesecake is GF. Depending on your level of sensitivity they are also willing to give you cheesecake without the crust( as that is the only gluten in most of them). I did not get sick from any cross contamination either. Unfortunately I wish my waitress was a little more educated on the matter.
There is a new menu, strictly for gluten free customers. This is the first time I've visited in a while. Was told the g free, separately spiral bound menu is just a couple of months old. Off that menu, I ordered black, unsweetened iced tea, sweet potato fries to share as an appetizer, and the Shepherd's Pie. Something gave me the swollen, butterflies in my glutenized stomach at the 2-3 hour mark. I was told the fries were made in a separate fryer, and the Shepherd's Pie was made in advance (which I thought would eliminate the risk of cross contam). I told the waitress I had a gluten allergy, as opposed to the true Celiac Disease line, in the hope that it would help with all cross contamination. I am not sure what made me sick. I just know I am. Service was great. Not sure went wrong in the kitchen for me.
The have a full gluten free menu. They offer fusilli pasta and hamburger buns. The food was amazing and so was the gluten free Godiva chocolate cheesecake. :)
I was blown away with how big their GF menu is. They offer GF appetizers, sides, entrees, and desserts. The food is so delicious, I usually get the mushroom burger (with GF bun) with a side salad. The GF chocolate cheesecake is good if you love really rich desserts... It was a little too sweet for me. I like the (kids sized) vanilla ice cream with hot fudge. They also offer an adult size sundae but it is made for 2-3 people. I only gave it 4 out of 5 stars because the last time I was there my food was cross contaminated. Within the hour my stomach swelled up 3 times the size and started to cramp horribly. I have been many times and only experienced a bad reaction once.
Cheesecake Factory has a separate spiral bound gluten free menu. I almost always order their pear and endive salad. It's delicious. This past time I was craving pasta and thrived their Evelyn Pasta special. It was awful and lacked any flavor. Manager returned our money.
I recently revisited this location (after being turned away a few years ago) and I am sooo glad I did! They have a new multi-page gluten free menu!! Wow! The food was great. I had a burger with a gf bun, seemed like an udis bun, and French fries. Will be back again soon.
Long time fans of this chain, but celiac kept us away UNTIL NOW, discovered deep and outstanding and newly rolled out gluten free menu at Hackensack NJ location. Staff surprisingly knowledgable and bun used for delicious turkey burger was outstanding. We were so impressed that we insisted on thanking the manager and he surprised us with a take home sampling of their GF pasta. A great and unexpected surprise, we'll surely go back for more.
That other review is for the Cheese Factory, not the Cheesecake Factory.
awesome!!! has a specific gluten free menu, that has several pages, including dessert. inflormed my waitress of the gluten, they were actually out of my first option, so the manager came out and personally apologized when he saw I was on a gluten restriction, second choice was stil amazing, and the waitress even knew which desserts were gluten free when she asked if we wanted any. overall whole experience was great, and staff knew when I ordered anything gluten free. def recommend!!!
Good GF menu with a lot of options. Burgers with GF buns, pastas, shepherds pie, salads.
Huge gluten-free menu, bigger than most restaurant's regular menus, including hamburger buns, pasta, and Godiva flourless chocolate cheesecake. Our new favorite gluten-free spot.
The gf cheeseburger and cheesecake are delicious. I'd give them an extra star if they had gf fries.
I have recently been diagnosed with wheat and gluten intolerance. This was one of my first meals out at restaurant. I was very happy to see so many choices on the Gluten Free Menu. Plus, I enjoyed sharing the Godiva Chocolate Cheesecake with my husband. Gotta love Gluten Free Cheesecake!
Godiva° GF Cheesecake, Menu: Full of choices, from Appetizers, Speciality Salads, All American Burguers, Pastas, Entrees, Kids Menu and Dessert!
I was shocked to find a big chain like The Cheesecake Factory fail GF 101. They do not have a dedicated fryer and yet consistently list French fries on their new gluten free menu - seriously? Such a simple mistake does not lend any confidence that this restaurant understands what being gluten free means or how gluten free food needs to be prepared. Too bad.
The have a special poutine gravy and the freshest cheese curds anywhere. Thee are many other things on the menu that are good. They make their own cheese and have a shop next door.
Be Careful here!!! Great Gluten Free menu! However, you run a high risk of cross contamination! My 7yr old has celiac disease. We were there last Saturday. She had ordered the GF pasta and we found a regular spaghetti in her dish. General Manager was very rude about it! Thank goodness my daughter didn't get sick....but still!! Will NOT take her here again!!!
The Cheesecake Factory has recently launched a GF menu, not as big as their usual menu but gives you plenty of choices including burgers, salads, pasta, dessert, drinks & even some of the low-calorie items.
Do NOT recommend if you have celiacs. went for my daughters 21 bday and college graduation. after looking over ootions and discussing my needs with waitress I was not comfortable eating there. it was no biggie I just wanted to enjoy the event. the manager came over insisted on buying my dinner and after a couple bites I knew I was glutened. it ruined the night and whole next day. I would have been better off having a drink and enjoying the night. I will never go back! only reason it gets 1 star is bc I'm forced to choose between 1-5. Horrible!
I've been eating here for seven years gluten free. I stick to the plain salmon with br rice and veggies which helps. I recently went to check out their new GF menu. They now have Udis hamburger buns and heartlands rice and corn pasta. I found a wheat spaghetti noodle in my sons GF pasta. Not good!
They do have a gluten free menu, just ask! Tons of options, I was impressed. BUT the Godiva cheesecake is NOT gluten free as advertised on their menu!
They just came out with a gluten free menu recently. It's a huge menu that's diverse with its options. My mom ordered the eggplant burger which came on a gluten free bun, she loved it! I ordered the pasta carbonara with gluten free pasta which was amazing as well. We ended the meal with their gluten free Godiva flour less chocolate cheesecake.
I read a lot of bad reviews about gluten items showing in “gluten free” entrees, so I sent an email to the corporate office. I received a call from their representative on September 10, 2013 stating they now have a menu dedicated for those who are gluten free. First let me say that they have a separate area in the kitchen with designated utensils for gluten free items, this will cut down on cross contamination. The representative relayed that they try to prepare gluten free items first. This is a new program, about a week old from this review. My family and I have eaten there two times since my conversation and have been satisfied both times. The only problem would be the noodles at this time, some was too hard while other entrees where too soft. They have gluten free bread, for those who want an actual hamburger/turkey burger/mushroom burger/eggplant burger (yes many choices). Like all restaurants the waiter can make the experience great or just average, which is why I won’t deduct my rating for an establishment because of one waitress. They also have desserts that are consumable for those with gluten intolerance/Celiac. Another feature my wife and I like is the fact they state that some items may contain has much as 20ppm. Finally the prices, there is NO added surcharge for wanting gluten free items; the price remains the same, minus the bread that is given complimentary in the beginning of the meal for those who can consume gluten. For those who miss eating Cheesecake Factory I highly recommend revisiting now they are serving gluten free items.
Fair amount of gluten free foods
I work here and it is awesome! So excited! I have eaten almost every item on the gluten free menu! I have not had any problems with the food what so ever and the Godiva cheesecake is flour less and amazing! Please check it out! Let your friends know!
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.
No matter which location you go to, be prepared for disappointment and fear. I was asked multiple times if I wanted bread after informing the waiter I had a gluten allergy. The management staff proceeded to tell me that I could have anything on the menu, plain, without sauce. Salad without dressing, fish without seasoning... I had to eat everything dry and was not given a discount. We should have walked out... pathetic.
I ordered chicken tacos with corn tortillas. I was told the sauce had gluten but that the cook would remove it and add some spices to make it tasteful. it was BLAND, dry and with overcooked chicken. I hesitate to give this even one star if it weren't for the waiter who understood my allergy and was frustrated himself with the kitchen.
Not good for people with celiac disease - do not guarantee no cross contamination
Not GF at all. They state this themselves.
They do not offer a gf menu and are extremely in accommodating. Had a server refuse to give me the check until I ordered cheesecake and explained to him multiple times that I was allergic. Sad because this was one of my favorite spots before becoming gf.
they don't have a gluten free menu, so I order plain chicken or fish no seasoning or sauces. they do have a cloudless cheesecake with no crust though that's pretty good and I've never had a problem with it (:
Very surprised to see this restaurant on the list. My experience at any Cheesecake Factory has been unpleasant. I was discouraged from ordering anything other than a beverage & side salad without a dressing. I would prefer & understand if they would say that they cannot accommodate allergies.
