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!
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.
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.
Had the salmon it was amazing!!! Told the waiter I had celiac he brought me out my own gf roll and own butter, checked on all the sauces for me and made sure I had an excellent experience... Only down side was only one cheesecake was made gf that night!
I ordered a pasta dish off their gluten free menu. My waiter was awesome. When the food came out there was clearly too different pasta types on my plate. He spotted it before I did. After that the manager personally made my meal to ensure whatever mistake happened didn't happen again. Unfortunately the manager isn't a great chef but I appreciate the second time around I could actually eat my food, two hours after I ordered it. On the bright side the complimentary gluten free chocolate cheesecake was amazing!
Good gf options to choose from, but I'd opt for a sandwich or appetizer and stay away from the pasta - they haven't quite figured out how to prevent cross contamination, and I actually found a regular pasta noodle in a GF pasta dish. No problems with any other menu items though and I eat here regularly.
You should not offer a gluten free menu if you don't even take basic precautions to separate the food. I ordered a dish with GF pasta, it contained several pieces on non GF pasta in the dish. The manager came over and assured me that the next dish would be fully GF. I waited 20 minutes for another dish containing mixed GF and regular pasta. Unfortunately I ate much of the "GF" dish before realizing it was cross contaminated. Sick for a week, even after being assured by a manager it would be GF. I know they can't assure 100% GF but having mixed GF and regular pasta is unacceptable.
When I went there they had the manager come talk to us and their gf hamburgers are AMAZING!! So is the gf cheesecake. There was cross contamination when I ate there once but they are okay with not cross contaminating. Like, for my sister the manager cooked her steak with a pan that they just got and had not been used yet.
My son and I both got sick. Definitely not safe for celiacs.
My sweet waitress was so worried that she double checked my order with the manager just to make sure it was gluten-free.
I told the waitress that I had celiacs and I ordered a salad with no dressing. Chopped factory salad. I think there may have been some sort of wonton in my salad that was not supposed to be in it because I got violently ill. Will never go back!!!
They actually know how to cook gluten free pasta. I got the 4 cheese dish with chicken and it was really good. I was surprised because chain restaurants have a harder time with gluten free pasta it seems, Olive Garden certainly puts theirs through a gross shredder every time. The waitress was sure to ask me if I had an allergy, there were no mixed noodles, it tasted great!
Went ahead of time in the morning to talk to the Chef. Chef Payne understood what we needed. He gave us his business card for when we returned later the same day and he took care of us. Dedicated French Fry fryer. They have burgers with gf buns (tastes like Udis). They have some pasta dishes, salads, chicken, fish, etc... For dessert they have a GF chocolate cheesecake (however it is in the showcase with the other cheesecakes). Chef told us that he could get a piece from the freezer to take home or eat there (although it probably wouldn't thaw out that quickly). There were also 2 ice cream sundae options - got Rocky Road - it was incredible!! We'll be back!!
Beware of the salads. I ordered one and they took all the ingredients off. No bacon, no dressing, no avacodo. Lettuce with tiny bit of balsalmic, they wouldn't give me more. All the while my husband ate what looked like a wonderful flavorful very large meal. They never came to check on us and then made it a big deal when I didn't want to eat that or anything else cause my husband was finished eating. After 1.5 hours (very bad service too) I left hungry. Find another establishment.
I'm glad other people have eaten here and not gotten glutened. However, I've gotten sick every time I've eaten here! Maybe it's my fault for ordering gluten free pasta dishes, but they shouldn't label it gluten free if it's not! I do appreciate the large gluten free menu though.. So I felt like that warranted 3 stars!
GF items are clearly labeled on the menu! What a plus. This makes dining out so much more pleasant for me. They only have one GF cheesecake available (the Godiva Chocolate Cheesecake). I wish they'd have a larger selection of GF cheesecakes. Otherwise, this isn't a bad place for many GF cordials, appetizers, and entrees.
Have attempted to eat here three times since being GF and I was glutened every single time. They have a really bad problem with cross contamination. I specifically told them each time that I had celiac, to which they responded by pointing out the disclaimer on their menu about cross contamination and warned me that I probably wasn't safe to eat there then. I should have never risked it. But what is the point of having a GF menu then? I guess it's just for the trendy folks.
HORRIBLE!! Ordered a cheeseburger to be made gluten free and they brought it out on a regular bun, luckily I noticed it didn't look right, then they brought me a new one with a regular bun on it AGAIN!! They screwed up twice and still charged me for my meal! And on top of all that I got sick from the burger they did bring out. Will never eat there again
No, most definitely not celiac friendly. The offer gluten free " upon request". I requested, they failed, badly. They gave a gluten free bun, but upon the first bites of my salad I realized there was already dressing. I asked a waiter about that and the seasonings on my fish. He asked and came back and took my salad and said it was not gluten free and said that the seasonings should be ok, because it might only have a "little" gluten. I had already taken bites of everything and spent the evening sick. No apologies, no comp service.
