They have a decent amount of gluten free options. However, they offer Godiva cheesecake as the gluten free cheesecake but Godiva chocolate is not gluten free! Their vinaigrette dressing is also not gluten free because it uses malt vinegar.
The food was good and I didn't get sick, but the lack of education and knowledge of the staff is highly concerning. I waited for a couple days to see if I got sick, which was pure luck when I didn't, I believe.
The Godiva cheesecake is NOT GF, do not fall for that. Too much cross contamination.
I have always loved this place! I was extremely disappointed when I was diagnosed with celiacs that I couldn't eat here anymore. Just recently I found out they have a separate menu for GF and the Godiva Cheesecake is GF. Depending on your level of sensitivity they are also willing to give you cheesecake without the crust( as that is the only gluten in most of them). I did not get sick from any cross contamination either. Unfortunately I wish my waitress was a little more educated on the matter.
First off, I will say the manager and the waitress were great. I ordered from the gluten-free options. I got steak and mashed potatoes and asparagus. I informed the waitress I had celiac. Unfortunately my Nima sensor tested the steak and the mashed potatoes as positive for gluten. The manager was very interested in my sensor, And was trying to troubleshoot why they showed up as gluten positive.
They have gluten free items marked on their menu be sure to state that you would like the dish gluten free and specify that you have an allergy. I ordered the chicken taco lettuce wraps and they were delicious. I am very sensitive to cross contamination and I did not get sick. At another location I ordered the gluten free pasta and got very sick so I would advice caution against the pasta.
Decent pasta! It's nice to be able to go somewhere so many people love. Apparently there is gluten free cheesecake but I have yet to try it.
This location is NOT celiac safe. When we came in, I talked to the server, and then also the manager. The manager assured me that there gluten free pasta with celiac safe and cooked in new water. He also assured me that he would walk back to the kitchen and talk to the chef. When my daughters gluten-free pasta came, right in the middle was a big gluten noodle. I would never trust eating here again.
Review is in consideration of GF. Brunch, no GF bread offered, yet they have a hamburger bun that I could have had, untoasted. So you know the prep is limited for GF meaning be careful. Also, strange no alternative milks offered, for instance coconut, almond, etc. just not really a friendly food sensitivity restaurant. I guess they have not been paying attention around them.
Went here last weekend for a friend's birthday because we knew there were gluten free options, and reviews said they were good about someone needing no cross contamination. The first item I ordered they were out of, so I reluctantly ordered one of there pastas with the gluten free noodles. I unfortunately took a few bites then started to portion out my dish, because I knew I couldn't eat it all unless I wanted to over eat. As I was doing g this I found several macaroni noodles (not gluten free) in it. Before we could even leave the restaurant I was already having problems. The only positive is that the server and manager were very swift to take action and make sure I was alright and regularly checked on me while my friends finished their meals.
staff is very knowledgeable about gf. is always get a pasta dish here. This place loses 2 stars, not for gf but I just don't think the food is worth the wait or price. however, if you are simply wondering if it is gluten free then 5 stars and 2 thumbs up since this place is very gf friendly! although they don't offer gf cheesecake they do have a gf dessert option. although I usually don't eat here it is very gf friendly.
Great experience here! Ordered the bacon cheeseburger with a gluten free bun. Alejandro, our waiter was very knowledgeable, thorough and double checked everything with the manager-Robb. They both spoke to the chef and line to make sure of no cross contamination. Ended our meal with the Godiva double chocolate cheesecake for dessert. Alejandro and Robb, thanks for making our eating experience a one in a lifetime! Will definitely return!
had the 3 cheese gluten free pasta and was violently sick for 5 hours! clearly was not GF. Not worth the risk
My celiac daughter ordered gluten free pasta from the kid's menu. It was very tasty but I fear there must be cross contamination as she immediately felt ill afterwards. If cross contamination is not a worry for you, the menu is extensive with many GF options. Unfortunately only one cheesecake is listed as GF option.
I was dx'd with Celiac 7 months ago and have visited this restaurant twice since then while in town for medical appts. Both experiences were awesome! The server was knowledgeable about Celiac and how menu items were prepared. I was impressed! It was also delicious!! I never eat out, but I trust this place! Thanks CF!!!
For the most part, their gluten-free menu is trustworthy. However, while I dined at a Cheesecake Factory in California, I was talked into having the Godiva flourless gluten-free cheesecake. I had a reaction. If I had to guess, it was either the piece of chocolate that was on top, or maybe they had used a serving piece that had been used to serve other kinds of cheesecake.
I always note my allergy and have never had a problem here (I also had good waiters). In my opinion, for a chain restaurant they have pretty good options. Pretty good pasta and the herb chicken is pretty good too. They even have a cheesecake, which is better than no cheesecake at all.
I loved going to the Cheesecake Factory until recently. I usually order pasta and salad. Every time I go, I ask which salad dressings are gluten free and I ALWAYS get a different answer. Lately I have been getting different types of pasta noodles as well. I ask over and over if they are sure it is gluten free pasta. Each time they reassure me. Needless to say, I spoke with a manager and only one type of pasta is gluten free. That means that half the time I've been eating there, I am getting a meal full of gluten!!! I feel sick after I eat there every time now. I will not be returning. They don't understand Celiac or even what gluten is.
I got a gluten free pasta dish. There was a noodle in there that was a completely different shape than the ones I ordered. I picked it out and thought I would be ok. So sick. :(
I have celiac disease I went here today for lunch. I was very careful and checked with both the hostess before sitting down and with my server before ordering. Both assured me that they treat gluten as an allergy and that I would be fine eating there. Although they assured me that I would be fine as I was eating I realized there was a gluten noodle in my pasta that I had accidentally eaten. I will now most likely be very sick from this. I altered the staff and both my server and manager were very apologetic and did not make me pay but I will never eat here again and I wouldn't recommend it for anyone with celiac disease or even a gluten allergy.
So I walk in ask the host if they have a Gluten free menu and he says yes! I then ask (as all celiacs must do)If they had separate fryers for non gluten items like fries. He says yes! I say great we will take a table. Our server arrives I ask him about the fryers he said he had to check with kitchen. When he comes back he said that yes they are safe and fried separately. Great so I order burger GF bun and fries. Simple enough right? So after about 20 mins he comes over to tell me that he is going on break and introduced our new server. She comes back 10 mins later and tells me that the fries are safe and being cooked separately. I never mentioned this to her but I was glad she knew what was up. ANOTHER 30 mins goes by. So now it's been an hour since ordering. At this point the manager comes over and says that they can't make the fries separately and that they never do. I let him know that 3 people told me otherwise and it is marked GF on their menu. He apologizes and offers me a side salad instead. I say ok cause we were starving and annoyed. After all this the "salad" he brought out was literally a tiny bowl of nothing but lettuce. Not one tomato, shred of carrot....nothing. Nothing was taken off our bill. About an hour and half for this nonsense. FAIL. Corporate will be getting a letter and I have never done that.
The food was good, I felt the GF section was limited. basically about 20 percent of the menu. seemed to be use to handling Gf request. nice dinning area for a big chain.
