Ate here the other night after convincing the boyfriend to try it with me. The server not only offered to re-clean the table upon hearing that we were going to be ordering gf. But even asked how severe my reaction may be with cross contamination. Was pretty impressed with that and him not treating me like another fad-dieter. He took it seriously. Upon reassuring him that I wouldn't die, just get sick later on. We ordered our pizza. Now we got the gf, dairy free (Daiya cheese is offered here since I also happen to have a dairy intolerance) Didn't get sick later, much to my surprise. It is a pizza place after all so I was skeptical. At this particular location they have a separate area that it is prepared in according to the menu in store as well as their online gf menu. Reading their online gf menu before we went, they seem to be more responsible than most restaurants around me are which was nice.
Not all Mellow Mushrooms have the same level of quality, but this one is exceptional. The GF pizza is separately prepared and handled, as it should be in all Mello Mushrooms. But this particular restaurant actually makes a great pizza. We've had the Mighty Meaty, Veg Out, and Cheese pizzas. They were all delicious and harkened us back to our pre-GF days. We always ask for extra cheese, and I recommend it. The management gets kudos for extra attention to our satisfaction !!
They do a great job of avoiding cross-contamination in their kitchen and the pizza is good - it has a bit of a hippy taste to it (you can tell they use sprouts and other veggies in the crust) but I like it a lot. Deducting a point because they never seem to know which toppings are OK for gfree. I've eaten the all meat pizza several times and not had an issue.
great gf options and come on... its pizza.
Gluten free pizza is pretty good. We've been several times with our daughter-in-law and the servers are great, they really take care to make sure the order is correct.
Great experience! The downtown Raleigh Mellow Mushroom uses a separate container (with a lid) for gf silverware and plates and even salt + pepper shakers. They asked if it was a diet preference or food allergy. There is an extra 15 minute process they go through in the back to ensure it is gluten free and no cross contamination. Worth waiting (not too long.) The pizza was delicious! Crust was good. They even let us do half and half of two different pizzas. Gluten free beer too. Great experience!!
Great pizza but way over priced!
very unfriendly and unwilling to answer questions and help out. the crust was soggy and not very good. on top if that the table was covered in gluten crumbs that they wouldn't clean off. got sick. not q pleasant experience
GF pizza and beer. Need I say more? Awesome!
The lady said you can order any pizza and put on a gfree crust so I tried the holy shiitake mushroom, it was pretty good and nice size. (12 inches) I never had a crust like that before so it was very different but I will try it again. I was just glad to have restaurant style pizza for my daughters birthday dinner
I agree with the other reviews! I often feel sick after eating here and have had much better pizza with no cross contamination effects from other Mellow Mushrooms.
Enjoyed some GF pizza and an angry orchard cider (on tap)! Pizza was delicious and super cheesy, always a plus! They had a lot of different options for GF people and our waitress was familiar with my allergy and what my options were. I would definitely go back again!
Love the gluten-free pizza here, especially with the pesto sauce!
They have a little gluten free menu that still includes all cool names of their foods and such, quite a fun gluten free dining experience. Especially because I'm a teenager, I love there GF pizza, with some bacon. They were very friendly and happy to help meet my dietary restrictions
I have to give 2 stars based only on the GF aspect (since this is a review for a GF app...). 15 minutes after leaving and my guts feel like they are going to explode and the search for a bathroom starts.... Everything else: it was a clean establishment and decorated nicely. The food did taste good but I do not know if my pizza was GF. Our waiter was VERY new (we might have been his 1st table ever) and had to keep leaving to find answers to our questions. They delivered the kids Mac & cheese is a ramekin STRAIGHT out of the oven, the dish was hot for 20 minutes. I think there is a lot of room for improvement as far as the gluten free food is handled, new employee training and common sense.
I appreciate their effort, but Mellow's GF pizza is not good. The crust tastes like card board and costs almost $20. Do yourself a favor and don't risk cross contamination for this pizza. Go buy a frozen Against the Grain pizza from Publix instead - much better.
Best gluten free pizza. Very knowledgeable and dedicated oven
UPDATED REVIEW: We did eat there many, many times and we were fine but after getting glutened once (very badly) we haven't been back. I kindly brought it to the attention of management and was ignored. We've taken our business to California Pizza Kitchen. Not worth the risk. Bummed by this though. :( ------ Great GF pizza! Personally, I love the thin GF crust -wouldn't trade it for gluten crust even if I could. Very accommodating to our food allergies.
One star is extremely generous. I asked for a Stella Cidre. Then I asked about their speciality pies with a gf crust. She said that she couldn't guarantee it would be gluten free, I said I'd rather be safe than sorry so stuck with one of their gf options. I get the beer, take a sip and immediately realize this is an amazing tasting cider it tastes almost like real beer. Well, that's because it was real beer she gave me a Stella. Fast forward 30 minutes and I'm vomiting in their bathroom while my friend is speaking to the waitress about it. The waitress tells her I ordered a regular Stella. She explains I have celiac disease, and that the waitress had repeated it back to me. No discount or anything just an extremely insincere apology. I had to leave work because I was so sick. I emailed and the owner gave me some reply about how they do educate all of their staff on celiac disease. Well, it was a big red flag when I was asking about the safety of the gluten free pizza and she had just taken my Stella cidre order. They gave me a $30 gift card to use there. I'm not going back.
I have been to this location multiple times and they have only made my order right a handful. I have celiacs and they offer gluten free, but my toppings always get screwed up. I keep ordering from them, when I am craving a pizza, but without fail I'm sitting at the bar while they present me 3+ mess ups. Listen, I work hard, I rarely have money to eat out, but I feel like a jerk constantly complaining about their mess ups. I've worked in the pizza/food service industry and reading a ticket, gluten free or not, isn't that hard. By the third time they bring me the wrong pizza, I just say thank you and leave with what ever they give me. As if it weren't bad enough having a dietary restriction, I don't want to seem obnoxious and gate complaining.
This mellow mushroom does gf pizza better than the one in Raleigh that I frequent. The pizza was crisper, and more like a regular thin crust pizza. Was here over Thanksgiving weekend and even though they were busy service was good and as always the pizza was delicious.
Awesome gluten free pizzas!!
All salad dressings are GF!!! Staff is knowledgeable. Very good service and bartender took extra precautions. Of course the GF pizza is great and medium sized, so I always end up taking some home. Love this place and will continue to go regularly!
