    They have a gluten free menu but staff was not very educated to it. Spent most of our evening for waiter to go ask if something was gluten free. Brought food to the table several times that he came back and removed because he realized it had gluten. Be careful.

    Eaten here twice, never been glutened. The bread they use is local and really good. Even my non-gf friends are happy with it. For vegetarians, the entree options are very limited so I usually just do cheese and chocolate fondue. Servers are knowledgable about gluten.

    My boyfriend surprised me with a wonderful dinner at The Melting Pot. We ordered all gluten free, and since everything is cooked at the table there is very little risk of cc. The staff was knowledgable and helpful. And the food was absolutely delicious. We will definitely be back.

    I went here for a girl's night with 3 other friends that were kind enough to eat gluten free with me, since you do share the same pot. They have a gluten free menu with a lot more selections than I anticipated. Even with the cheddar cheese fondue, they used corn starch instead of flour and gluten free beer! it tasted just as I remember from before I was diagnosed Celiac. Their gluten free bread is well, you know.. gluten free bread. But I didn't even care. Even for dessert, they have gluten free brownies, marshmallows, chocolate.. Everything was delicious and I did not get sick!

    We stopped here for dessert fondue. I figured there would be only fruit for mine. So pleasantly surprised to have gluten free pound cakes and brownies. The brownies were great. The pound cake a bit dry. But I'm certainly not complaining because it was wonderful to have gluten free dessert!

    It was the first day for my waitress but she asked everything about celiac to the manager. He came and checked on me also. They have a gluten free menu and everything is prepared by you or the waitress at the table so you can make sure it is done correctly. It is an experience not to be missed! They even had a gluten free brownie and cupcake for my birthday although this was not on the menu.

    Food is as great as I remember (last time I was there was 10+ yrs ago), the server didn't know too much about gluten free foods, but with my help and other staff he was able to give me answers. Also don't go in expecting to get your food quick, this is a fondue based restaurant meaning you have to wait for it to cook.

    Went there for a birthday celebration. Wonderful cheese fondue, but the best is the entrees. Peppered steak is amazing when you cook it in the broth. Next time I think I will get all beef and seafood. They are very careful about bring separate fondue cookers for those who are celiac.

    This place is amazing! Not only do they have an extensive gluten free menu, but the manager was extremely sensitive to my dairy allergy as well. He brought out a special dessert caramel fondue for dessert since I cannot have milk chocolate. They really bend over backwards to make sure you have a great experience.

    Not only do they have GF options, but they have a full GF menu, and not just a laminated piece of paper, their gf menu is bound in leather just like their regular menu! The staff is pretty knowledgable, but the friendliness and atmosphere will win you over. They have gluten free bread for the cheese fondue appetizer, several gf dipping sauces for the entrΓ©e, and gluten free brownies AND cupcake bites for the chocolate fondue desert. If you ever thought about participating in the fondue experiencing but wrote it off because you are gluten free, reconsider, because this restaurant will meet all your needs and will not disappoint! I highly recommend the wine flight pairing to go with each of your courses. We even used a Groupon and the restaurant was very accommodating. Carl was our server, he was excellent and a pleasure to dine with. Even if you don't get Carl, the place is fantastic!

    This restaurant is phenomenal! Our waiter was very knowledgeable, and pretty much anything on the regular menu can be made gluten free. They even brought out gluten free brownies and cake for chocolate fondue dessert! The only issue you may run into is the cross contamination in the fondue pot. However, the guests that came with you can order gluten free too with barley any difference to their meal. As long as they're okay with doing that, this place is considered 100% GF in my mind! :)

    My initial review was good and then the meal continued. So here is the thing, I don't think the staff truly understands what Celiac is and what needing to be completely gluten free is. When they brought dessert they brought my daughter gluten free and then brought me and my mom a plate of gluten containing food. Great, what happens when I did it in the fondue pot? They also brought sauce that contained gluten, while we can separate it from my daughter they should never take a chance. My husband asked for no crutons on his salad (i.e. GF and guess what it had crutons) I am not sure that I would bring my daughter back here and take the risk. Live and learn!

    I've had one really good experience and one weird experience. The first time I went, the server was extremely knowledgeable, the cheese course good (but disappointing bc they gave tortilla chips instead of gf bread) and the chocolate really good. Just before the second time I went, I noticed they updated their menu so that the gf cheese course said it came with gf bread. I was, understandably SO excited...however the hostess didn't understand gluten free (and didn't care to) and neither did the waitress, who tried to tell me their regular bread didn't have crumbs and therefore my friend (not gf) and I could share a pot. Thankfully she was more open and we managed to clear matters up and we were able to get separate pots and she was very careful to not mix spoons and made sure every ingredient that went into my pot was gf...however, I was still given tortilla chips instead of the gf bread advertised on their menu. When I asked about this, I was told you have to call ahead for gluten free bread. Not cool. I'll definitely go again because their cheese and chocolate are really good and the server the second time did seem genuinely engaged in making sure I was okay...but I guess I'll have to call ahead to get gf bread.

    My wife's favorite restaurant in Dayton. She was recently diagnosed with Celiac Disease and we thought we had lost this as an option. We were wrong! We had a terrific experience, staff was knowledgeable and asked if food should be prepared separately (Celiac vs intolerance). Bread for cheese fondue was from local GF bakery (Sinfully Gluten-free) and they used GF lager for cheese fondue. Our favorite part: the GF menus was professionally printed and leather bound, not an afterthought like some places. Great place for special occasions!!

    My wife and I went here for our 1year wedding anniversary and we told the server many times that my wife can not have gluten. The first thing we ate was the bread, we asked him and he assured us it was gluten free. Not till later when my wife got sick and had a reaction did we find out that the bread was whole wheat.

    Wonderful gluten free menu and very knowledgable staff!! I had my own gluten free dippers and my husband had his (no extra charge). Our waiter brought my husband a spoon that way he could spoon fondue on to his non-gluten dippers. The waiter was extremely careful and knew exactly what cross contamination was--that rarely happens. This was a wonderful experience and I would gladly go back!!

    They had a leather bound gluten free menu that looked as professional as their regular menu. I was surprised at how well suited they were to Celiac patrons and we had a wonderful experience. There were good options for each course with few modifications and our server was very knowledgable. In our experience gluten-free is not an afterthought at The Melting Pot - I felt pampered rather than accommodated and that's a rare thing in chain restaurants.
