The menu clearly labels gluten free options. My waiter was aware and concerned about my food allergies. I had a grilled chicken sandwich with avocado. I was surprised it came on gluten free sandwich bread rather than a gluten free bun. It tasted fine but I was expecting more than just a couple of slices of bread. I wish this upscale restaurant would invest in a dedicated gluten free fryer.

Staff seemed completely unaware about anything Gluten Free. Waitress didn’t listen when we said we needed gluten free and continued to bring bread to our table. Needless to say, wasn’t long after we left that I got sick. Not safe for Celiacs at all. They don’t take GF seriously here.

My waiter was very knowledgeable about my request and assisted my choices. I ordered a salmon dinner with two veg. Sides. I asked if the starter bread was gluten free and no, they don’t offer that choice yet. The dessert choices were 3 yessss and I got Godiva flourless chocolate cheesecake! Super fantastic!! Way to gooo

They do have many items flagged as being gluten free by request. They only have one gluten free cheesecake though. The waiter was not knowledgeable, but did offer to ask if things were gluten free & wasn't irritated by all the questions. I had the roasted chicken & it was good. Three hours later feeling a little off, but not ill.

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.

The Cheesecake Factory does have a gluten free menu. They offer burgers with gluten free bun and gluten free pasta to name a few. Before they started offering the GF menu I would order the Lemon roasted chicken. They don't use a separate kitchen so it's possible for cross contamination.

Super disappointed. Called and talked to kitchen manager, Tiffany, who kept saying the had a gluten free menu. When pressed, she admitted they do not designated fryer and didn't understand why they needed to make gluten-free any differently than their regular menu.

The waitress refused to get the list of ingredients for us for any menu items. The "gluten free" fries are fried in the same fry oil as the rest of their fried foods. We were told the only thing that would be safe for us to order is their salad or a grilled meat. As much as our 2 and 4 year old would love a salad for dinner we didn't feel like paying $80 for that. Sad because all they would need is a dedicated frier and any person with celiac would be happy.

I was impressed! Large GF menu and great vegetarian options, too. I got the grilled eggplant sandwich and it was delicious. Oh, AND THEY HAVE FRIES!!! Hot out of the fryer and perfectly salted. I did have the Godiva cheesecake, which is kept in a case with regular cheesecake, so it was a risk, but I didn't get sick. I ordered takeout from the dessert center and the guys behind the counter took great precaution to prevent cross-contamination, washing hands, changing gloves, and using disposable silverware to get my cheesecake. They didn't want to put whipped cream on it because they said they weren't sure if it was GF and didn't want to make me sick. One of them put my order in and then walked back to the kitchen to reiterate to the chef that I needed the fries made fresh in the GF fryer. I appreciated the care that was taken with my meal. I will go back anytime I am in Nashville.

They have a good amount of items that are gluten free. Their Turkey burger is honestly my favorite and now they have 2 different gf cheesecakes. We unfortunately usually have something wrong with our order EVERY time (for take out). So even though I haven't gotten sick here yet, I feel like I'm rolling the dice every time we order.

Called ahead and the staff understood and would accommodate by prepping gf pasta separately (normally all pasta boiled together). Ordered with a seemingly knowledgeable server but 10-15 min after our order was in the manager came out and told us they were out of gf pasta?! I have no idea how it took so long for them to bring this to our attention but it was too late to go somewhere else so we ended up getting a gf bun with butter (my 4 year old is incredibly picky and that was the only other thing they had available). Points for trying to make it right and knowing what celiac meant and not just subbing reg pasta, but the whole experience was incredibly annoying as they didn’t have the gf food they had listed on the menu and the server didn’t know they didn’t have it either.

My girlfriend has celiacs and ordered the gluten free pasta and got horrendously sick about an hour later. No indication that anything was wrong. If it was pure gluten it would have hit her in 20 min so it had to be cross contamination. Do not put yourself at risk!!!

I asked for something gluten free and explained the severity. The server said he understood and when he brought my food he even made a point to say they left off the breadcrumbs. I thought I was ok until I took a few bites and found the breadcrumbs were just stirred in to cover the mistake.

I have silent celiac but have always trusted Cheesecake Factory to prepare my food carefully (despite an incident at another location where they served me a regular hamburger bun). However on my last visit I got a pasta dish and after eating the whole thing I saw a regular noodle at the bottom. I got a very unsatisfactory response from the manager there and made a complaint to corporate with no response yet. Sad to see this has happened to others here and unfortunately I don’t think I would trust eating at this chain again given these 2 incidents which were both handled poorly by the restaurants.

I’ll preface my review by saying I have a lot of migraine triggers and that’s also my main symptom to gluten and dairy exposure. There were a good amount of gf options. Only 1 gf cheesecake option and my daughter was able to eat that. Godiva chocolate and she said it’s amazing. I also have a dairy allergy so it’s trickier. I got a turkey burger on a gf bun. I really liked it. They said the fries were safe and they were good too. My daughter got a pasta dish and liked it. I did end up with a migraine and not sure if it was due to this restaurant or some other trigger. I would eat here again.

Ate at this restaurant with specific instructions to the waiter about Celiac food preparation three years ago. They did not follow easy directions. Food was seriously cross contaminated. GF cheesecake was baked and stored next to wheat cheesecake. I was sick for three months. Never again. These chains do not understand what GF really means and how dangerous their cavalier attitude about it can be for Celiac’s. Do not eat here, you will get sick.

The waiter knew nothing. I asked about an omelette, thinking it would be a safer choice, and it was marked gluten free. I wanted to make sure all of the ingredients were gluten free and he said “meat doesn’t have gluten ... I don’t think.... so the bacon should be fine” Yeah.... . He later reassured me that what I ordered was all gluten free. Now I am sick. Thanks.

They do have several GF items in the menu. I tried their GF old fashioned burger. The meat was pretty good, but, overall, the burger didn’t have much flavor. I’ve had GF burgers in other restaurants that have tasted much better. Additionally, $14 is way too high for a burger from my perspective.

Ate here with a large party, so I know that’s hard on the server. However, they will now direct you to an allergen website and won’t answer questions about the food or prep; our server answered one question about the fries but otherwise said he was required to go get his manager (which ultimately might be great, but was very awkward with a large group of professional colleagues and also wasn’t stated as a solution or being helpful, more as a response to me being a difficult patron). I almost decided not to get food, but ultimately chose something I get might be most safe. I think it was ok, but it’s hard to say because I’m traveling and already sick. Celiacs use caution or avoid.

April 2019 - Tried this location for first time last week. Had Cobb salad with ranch (balsamic that normally comes with cob is not gf) and had no crutons. Took a couple slices of my own gf udi multigrain bread and they brought me butter. Waitress was knowledgeable about celiac options. Had no issues. Salad was a little bland but nice to have another family option. May try blue cheese dressing next time which is also gf. Update: have gone several more times this year with no issues. Also Godiva cheesecake is GF but I advise you only get if buy a whole frozen one to take home and thaw out in fridge before eating (the sliced ones in the restaurant case are next to gluten deserts so I avoid getting slices at the restaurant). These are the best GF deserts I know of.

I just became gluten-free, and it's been a hard adjustment. So naturally, I was scared eating out, as it's supposed to be a fun celebration, and not something to dread. When I called to see if they had a gf menu, they assured me that they absolutely did. When I went there, while the server didn't 100% know if items that weren't labeled gf were (they seemed to be), she checked with both the manager and the chef. Thank goodness that I don't have to loose one of my favorite restaurants. I had the chicken farfalle gf dish and fries for a snack, and didn't have any pain. While they only have one option for cheesecake, it was still good.

Dedicated fryer .. was warned that it is next to the regular fryer so they did warn me about the slight risk of cross contamination but that they had never had any complaints from celiacs. I am celiac and took the risk and seemed to be fine from it. The burger was great too. I had tried to eat at this chain in Canada before and didn't have much luck but I was thoroughly impressed with the menu this location had. I would go back for sure!

Limited GF modifications; no separate fryer; limited awareness of celiac/allergy prep from the server. I only ate the beet/orange/avocado salad and didn’t order more because I was worried about cross contamination. While I didn’t get glutened, I certainly wasn’t satisfied and I left hungry.
