ordered the four cheese pasta gluten free, plenty of the menu can be gluten free upon request so I had tons of options! Waiter understood my request and I wasn’t glutened.

One of the best places to get gf options. The menu is huge and they have good gluten free pasta. I’ve had items modified too to be made gluten free. Never had any problems. Plus the gf cheesecake is great.

I ordered some Mexican lettuce chicken wraps. I was given plain chicken and lettuce. Its as horrible as it sounds. I had to send it back to get all the other gluten free toppings.

I'm truly excited how many GF options are offered on the menu and the quality of their bar staff during lunch time. Also, the rice noodles are actually made with rice flour so I was able to order the Chicken Lettuce Asian Tacos without modifications; that made my heart so happy.

I debated about eating at the bar because bartenders sometimes get annoyed about food allergies. With a long wait for a table, we decided to give it a try. The bartender was AWESOME! He pressed all of the food allergy buttons when he put my order in and then, went to the kitchen to discuss my allergies with the chef.

Good gf menu but when I asked about gf and dairy free dressing options she changed her mind twice.. It almost led to a mixup and then she asked how serious my allergy was because she didn't want me to faint. More training is needed.

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.

I ordered the lowlicious cheesecake with strawberries and the four cheese gluten free pasta. I said it was an allergy and I needed there to be no cross contamination. They probably did that, but they failed to notice or inform me that the pasta itself is made in a facility containing wheat. I got sick about 20 minutes after eating. But, if you don’t have a high sensitivity to cross contaminated foods, then I would recommend this meal.

I go to this place all the time. I only had one incident were there was none GF pasta mix into my food. The manager who was GF was very good at handling the situation. I just make sure that they know I am Have a medical GF problem and that usually solves it. So be careful here but I don’t get sick ever.

Ordered the shepherds pie, which is made gluten free. Very good. They had gluten free cauliflower crust in place of their flatbread and also could have burgers gluten free. Lots of other options. Shared a gluten free cheesecake with my wife which was really good.

They didn't ask me if it was an allergy. The runner wasn't clear about the food being gluten free. Judging from the pain last night and today, I 100% was given a gluten full meal. Never again, that was awful.

DO NOT GO. I was assured 5 times my food was gluten free. It was not. Absolutely incompetent staff to let this happen. Do not trust them. The whole corporation has poor food quality management, and will ruin your evening and days to come with dread.
