The manager assured us the bun was gluten free & the fries were fried in a dedicated fryer. However, we used a Nima to test fries & a bacon burger & the results were positive for gluten. It was disappointing since the food at other locations has been safe.

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!

Was sat at a table and 10 minutes later we got up and walked out after being ignored by everyone who walked by us. Terrible service!

Always a good quick meal choice. Numerous options for GF and they have two GF cheesecakes now. They will change their gloves and get a new knife upon request when serving the cheesecakes - important for celiacers!

So impressed last night at CF! They made special pasta and Alfredo sauce for my celiac daughter. The manager came to our table numerous times to check on us and totally understood the severity of cross contamination. They gave her a huge bowl of whipped cream for dessert, for free!

not all items Are gluten free so be careful ie the Cobb salad listed in their GF menu with Blue Cheese

by some peoples standards one could argue Cheesecake Factory should not be listed as GF. I've had few issues not always GF however

I started working for this company 6 months ago and as part of my training they had me taste the food. When I informed them of my gluten allergy they made sure everything I ate was safe. They have a decent size gluten free menu and the staff are well informed on what is safe. There are even sundaes and a cheesecake safe for those who can't have gluten. The only thing I would be cautious of would be the fries. They are fried in their own fryer but it's next to other items that have flour. I've yet to have a reaction from eating the food and I love the options.

The last two times I've ordered from here my salads came with remnants of croutons in them as if they'd been added and then taken out, even after I expressly told them I had an allergy. The most recent time I also got gf pasta and got horribly sick afterwards. Be forewarned ordering gf food here may come at a risk to your health.

Ordered pasta (garlic something) and 2 hours later I was throwing up and NOT FEELING WELL!

I have ordered GF before and I've been fine, so I'm guessing it is a hit and miss.

I won't be back though, not worth the risk :(

I love this place. They change their gloves and have a separate area. They only have like 4 cheesecakes that are gluten free but there are plenty of options on their menu. I’ve never had an allergic reaction there

I only got the dessert. The Godiva chocolate cheesecake is gluten free and very good. It is a very rich cake, and I ate it over a few days. Definitely recommend.
