    Had dinner here for the first time last night. ordered the guacamole and chips and the American burger. everything was great and I didn't get sick. Our server was knowledgeable and very obliging to find out what was gluten free and possible to have contamination. HOWEVER, I want to advise other Celiacs that Godiva chocolate is NOT guaranteed gluten free, they even say so on their website that if you have Celiac/gluten sensitivity, you shouldn't consume any of their chocolates. So, I am unsure as to why The Cheesecake Factory makes a "gluten free" cheesecake with chocolate that we are advised not to eat.... I think I will contact them if I can about it.

    Knowledgeable staff, GF Godiva Cheesecake was excellent -- something that I ate, however, was not GF at this location because I was very sick afterward.

    Waitress very helpful. I’m gluten free vegetarian... has the tamales as an appetizer and the gluten free primavera pasta for dinner. I asked the server about the pasta ( are you sure this is gluten free ) she responded that the GF pasta is always the rotini ( spirals ) that’s how they ensure it’s the right one ... the Godiva cheesecake is on the GF menu ... but I’m unsure about Godiva being gluten free.. waitress assured us it was ... but I skipped it. The Food was delicious !!!

    I've been here dozens of times and I always order the same thing, gluten free 4 cheese pasta. (Thankful not to have a dairy allergy). One time, a few years ago, it came out with the wrong noodles, which I noticed immediately, because they are a different shape than the gf spirals. They also quickly realized the mistake and the waitress and manager came running out to make sure I didn't eat it. They were proactive, sincerely apologized, made me a new one and didn't charge my husband and I for our meal, at their insistence. Very good customer service and they kept us as customers. It's smart of them to have a different shape for gf pasta, so I knew not to eat it!

    After waiting almost an hour to get our food, my son started eating his GF pasta dish and found a piece of gluten pasta in it. The manager said “I’m sorry” and walked off. Will never eat here again after how we were treated - my son had even talked with our waitress extensively before ordering about him being a sensitive Celiac and could they please be extra careful 😳

    I appreciate anytime a restaurant has gf items listed on the full menu, however after several visits to Cheesecake Factory it is confirmed that this is not the place to go if you have celiac. They have brought regular bread with breakfast, regular pasta instead of gf (Thankfully I asked but by the time my meal came everyone else in the party was done eating. CCF did not offer to compensate in any way). Bread crumbs to top gluten free pasta I ordered on a to-go order. They put a piece of chocolate that is not gf on the gf Godiva cheesecake... I always leave this restaurant sick. It is a shame, wish they would get it together.

    They don’t know how to avoid cross contamination. The waitress stacked all the food together while carrying it to the table, gluten touching the gf plate. I wouldn’t trust the process in the kitchen if they carry it to the table like that.

    My daughter has celiac disease and we asked them to prepare her gluten-free macaroni and cheese safely. About halfway through her meal she noticed a piece of spaghetti in her penne pasta. We have no idea if any of it was gluten-free or how that piece of pasta got in there. At the very least it was contaminated. I will not return.

    This Cheesecake Factory doesn’t have a separate fryer for French fries. Idk about others. They fry fries in the same fryer as chicken fingers ect. They are labeled gf. If you’re gluten free & order fries, you’ll get cross contaminated. I asked the server about the fryers. I learned my lesson from Applebee’s. They do the same thing. The server was new so got the manager. I tried to explain to the manager about fries being fried in a shared fryer are no longer gf & they’re making people sick so either take them off the menu or get a separate fryer. I’m also going to call corporate.

    A gluten free menu but difficult when add to that food allergies to all nuts (shared areas), egg, and soy protein. Spoke directly with manager who was very helpful. Discussed options of burgher, steak, chicken. Not easy when trying to please a 6 year old. Fries not safe as prepared in shared fryer. Daughter insisted on burger. Although GF bun available, used our own home made egg free bun. They offered to safely warm it and served it to her as a meal. She ate every bite of her dinner and enjoyed it! Again, manager was great in trying to accommodate and please. It had been a long day of sightseeing. We were tired, hungry and forgot it was Friday so there were large crowds everywhere. Ate without any incidents and everyone enjoyed sitting outside! Would recommend and return!

    We were excited about gluten free options however the waitress was unsure about gluten free. she didn't know if there was gluten free buns for the hamburger. so we ordered without bread and asked about French fries she said that she would check it out. when she brought the food to the table, there was buns on it and french fries before confirming that it was gluten free. she made us nervous and lost our appetite. wished the waitress was trained better. we are not going back. we have celiac so we have to be very careful about food obviously.

    I was excited to try it out because it was my first time there ever (before diagnosis and now both) and I knew they had a bunch of options. The server was so incredibly nice and willing to do whatever we needed. I got GF pasta in the Farfalle with Chicken and Roasted Garlic and I had 5 bites before I felt so bad. I had a reaction very quick (after not having eaten all day so no prior contaminated food) and it was very bad. We came from out of town and I had to deal with an hour ride back smelling the leftover food that made me sick and feeling sick to my stomach.

    The Cheesecake Factory has many gluten free options. With that being said, it's really not the safest place to eat so proceed with caution. I'm writing this review to inform the gluten sensitive or those with celiac that even though they say they have a separate fryer and that you can eat french fries safely, that's not always the case. My daughter and I both dealt with cross contamination there when we ordered gluten free french fries. I later found out at another Cheesecake Factory, that it's common practice for the cooks to use that "other fryer" when they feel the need to. So that explained things for me. I thought the waitress was just being lazy and gave me fries that were fried in the common fryer. So please be careful. Also, don't order the gluten free cheesecake. It is with all the other cheesecakes and I got sick from that on another occasion. Moral of the story, I think you can order a few things here that are safe but you are gambling. It's just not worth it for me.

    I was traveling from out of town and I’ve always had good experiences with this chain. Extensive gluten free menu. Gluten free cheesecake. However, my experience at this location was horrible. I repeatedly explained my gluten free choice was allergy. I knew I was in trouble when I was served the wrong cheesecake! Not gluten free. Sure enough, when we got the receipt she hadn’t even rung my meal in as gluten free. I had a terrible reaction and was so so sick.

    I used to go there all the time and get pasta, and it was great. Until one time where they gave me regular, not gluten free pasta. I thought they had gotten a new snap of pasta so I ate half of the bowl and then the manager came over to tell me it was not GF. They have me a gift certificate and free cheesecake but I knew I was going to get horrendously sick, so nothing could make up for it. I went to give them another try and let everyone know that I had a bad experience before, yet there was still a crouton left in my Caesar salad at the very bottom. I will not return to this Cheesecake Factory. Burton’s is more trustworthy and far better!

    They advertise as gluten free and that there is no cross contamination. And yet I got sick there three consecutive times in a row. The employees need to get better training there in terms of gluten allergies and to be aware that it is an actual health issue for people and not just a stupid fad.

    I have Celiac and I called prior to dinner to make sure they had GF options. I talked to the server when ordering. Ate 1/3 plate of GF garlic chicken pasta and 1/2 of a slice of GF Godiva chocolate cheesecake and 15 min later, I was doubled over in pain. Was the only meal I had eaten yesterday. After a long night of being sick, I looked at the receipt and my husband and I were charged for a non-GF pasta and non-GF cheesecake. Thinking now, that despite having called in advance, speaking with the server and having them bring out my dish while stating that it was GF; it was not. Very sick and very frustrated. Do *NOT* eat here. **Edit: I called this morning and spoke with a manager. She was very nice and very apologetic. Although it doesn’t make up for the effects of being glutened, she refunded my card the price of my meal.

    shocked at how many options there were. Also pleasantly surprised to learn that there are 2 fryers and fries and potatoes are cooked separately from the breaded items. 2 gluten free cheesecake options. My server cut my piece herself to avoid cross contamination. I haven't been here in more than 14 years and I am sure I will be back soon!
