    They have a GF menu with plenty of options, very willing to make accommodations, and even have a fantastic gluten free Godiva Chocolate cake!! I had 2 pieces of it, along with a very nice dinner.

    Yesterday went to the cheesecake factory i wasnt impressed as usual what i found strange is i oulked up there menu looked at a appetizer which stated 1 price but when in questioned the waitress told me the website was updated.in response i said to her why is the menu here stating a different price she didnt have a plausible answer anf basically walked away. They're over priced and food is not that GREAT!!!!!! Beautiful place for show. Ive been to more down home gems gotten waaaaaay better food and service. Will not be returning anytime soon. People Rah!Rah! About this place why I dont know. Also they change the menu to much its like 6 different Resturants in one place basically a bufffet. LOL LOL can get that anywhere. The resturant is a joke

    The main menu clearly shows gluten free items AND they have gluten free pasta! The pasta was delicious, which is always hit or miss, but it was definitely a hit for me!

    After a few years of avoiding this chain, I was finally forced back because a group of friends wanted to go and I did not want to be the jerk who said no. To my surprise they now have a GF menu which wasn't horrible, except,of course for dessert. Then you get basically a flourless chocolate cake.

    They clearly mark what can be made gluten free on their menu, but state that they use the same equipment and there is a risk of cross contamination. My husband likes the Factory Nachos (not gf), but I have yet to find a dish that I like. My first visit, there was an hour and a half wait and I was served chicken that was only partially cooked, then they tried to charge for my meal, too. The other times, the food wasn't that great and I want to be wowed for a price tag that high. One time, they gave me a gluten free hamburger bun for table bread so that I could have bread, too. It was good, but when I ordered the hamburger with gluten free bun on another trip, the top was stale and the bottom was soggy. I would not recommend this place until the staff learns how to cook a decent meal.

    My advice, stick with salads and burgers. There were plenty of other GF options on the menu. My son had a burger with gluten free bun, he said it was good and inhaled it. My mom had the grilled salmon with asparagus and potatos, which looked delicious. She was confused why the herb crusted salmon in one area of the menu was GF Upon Request but not listed that way in another area, and did not get a very clear answer from the waiter. There were GF options listed on the kids' menu, which I have not seen other places. Good service as well. I had the shepherd's pie, which I did not want, but I had a hard time deciding. Many choices, nothing inspired me. The Shepherd's pie was good but pretty salty and oily. I would not order that again. Only one cheesecake is available GF, we did not try it. I think this place, which such an expansive menue, could do a lot better.

    I would give it less if I could. My mom's meal came a half hour before mine did and I only got pasta!!! When I finally got my food, it tasted good but I found remnants of regular pasta at the bottom. Sure enough, I felt sick an hour later. Would not recommend. Terrible service and got sick from it. My dad called the manager and gave us a gift card but it is not worth the risk.

    Got horribly poisoned here and as much as I love Cheesecake Factory, I won't eat there again - it's just not worth it. I was halfway through my salad when I came across a few things that were definitely not supposed to be in there... it was then that I wondered about cc and sure enough I started getting sick on the way home and was ill for 8 days... Shame because I actually had a very knowledgable server who told me all about the cross contamination issues, that the broccoli is boiled in the pasta water for example - something I would never think about. We both figured a salad would be safe enough right? SO WRONG. If you are in the least bit sensitive do not eat here.

    While they don't have a gluten free menu specifically, they do identify what they can prepare gluten free. When I asked the waitress how the gluten free options were prepared her answer was very knowledgable and impeccable. Sure, there is a high degree of trust here. But for the first time in a long time my three year old got to eat a hamburger and dessert at a restaurant. Thank you!!

    They don't have "GF" items - they have items that are on the menu that don't have gluten in them. They make no effort to be GF at all. Its just regular menu items that wouldn't come with gluten anyway.

    BE VERY CAUTIOUS if you're truly Celiac!! Visited from out-of-state. Called ahead on a Friday evening, confirmed with management that GF options could be prepped separately and reduce risk for contamination. Waited an hour for a table, was finally seated. Asked waitress to confirm chef could prepare a SALAD with grilled chicken separately -- kitchen manager told her there was high risk of contamination. A SALAD ? With grilled chicken? Manager came by, was arrogant and condescending stating that any restaurant cannot guarantee anything. No attempt to even reassure that he would have the chef grill the chicken separately or anything. After an hour and half of waiting for dinner, I left and went to California Pizza Kitchen -- which is amazing by the way!

    Although there are gluten free options there seems to be a lot of issues with staff knowledge. Fries are marked as gluten free on the menu but they are not cooked in a dedicated fryer. Only two salad dressings are ok and server had to check several times to see what was safe.

    This Cheescake Factory location is not as good as the La Cantera location at doing gluten free, but it may depend on your server. They are usually way, way too crowded and chaotic, especially on weekends. However, the corn cakes are super here and you probably can't go wrong with them! If you do go, you have to insist that they cut the godiva cheesecake with a new knife or else they do use the same one on multiple cheesecakes.

I also had the gluten free mac and cheese. It was good, but the pasta was a little undercooked. But I know how finicky gf pasta can be!

    Do NOT eat at this CCF if you must be gf! My server seemed ticked that I would ask for gf. I am now violently ill.. I know what cross contamination feels like, and this isn't it.

    Waitress, Kayla G was knowledgeable, extremely pleasant and patient. She answered all my questions and recommended what I could safely eat as The Cheesecake Factory does not have a dedicated fryer or grill. They use gluten containing marinades on the grill. I ordered the 1/2 chicken, mashed potatoes and green beans. I did not get sick and will eat there again this week during my vacation. The only reason I gave The Cheesecake Factory 4 stars is because the options are very limited because of cross contamination risk. My visit was very pleasant, the food was very flavorful and the staff was excellent.

    They boil "steamed broccoli" in the same pot of water that they cook regular pasta and noodles. The manager can't address the problem of it because he has no knowledge about "gluten FREE". My husband found a strip of noodle in his Steamed broccoli that he specificity emphasized on STEAMED but no boiled. When we talked to the manager about it, he told us that they have been served the same kind of steamed broccoli to gluten free customers and it seemed to be no problem at all. He told us to call back the next day if my husband feel sick arrogantly. The worse experience we had with this franchise!

    I've been to other Cheesecake Factory restaurants and this was terrible. We came in towards the end of the night and our waitress didn't know what gluten free meant. I explained it and she said she'd alert the kitchen. I ordered the pasta carbonara as I have done at the other restaurants and it was a huge mistake. I took a bite and the pasta did not seem to taste gluten free and the texture was like regular pasta. She assured me it was gf and I was starving and at it. Before I even left there I was extremely ill. I was sick for almost 2 weeks. I know I should have trusted my instincts. I will not go back to this location as I feel they did not care and were unhappy we came in an hour before closing.
