    Went there last night and left very happy. Any item that can be altered to be GF is labeled on the menu and my server seemed pretty knowledgable about what I could and couldn't have. The GF roll my sandwich was served on was pretty good too. He did warn me that the fries are cooked in the same fryer as everything else so those are a no-no if you're worried about cross contamination. I'll definitely be back!

    Our server was extremely careful once we let him know we had Celiac and not only went to ask about the fry oil and pasta water but took it upon himself to check the ingredients and preparation of our beverages even though I forgot to ask about them. He let us know their protocol about changing gloves and two different managers stopped by our table to ask if we had any others questions. We felt very safe eating there!

    They have a GF menu with plenty of options, very willing to make accommodations, and even have a fantastic gluten free Godiva Chocolate cake!! I had 2 pieces of it, along with a very nice dinner.

    I am celiac and dairy free. I have eaten here three times while traveling since being diagnosed CD four months ago. They have been helpful narrowing down my options to salmon with rice or a salad option. In an area with very few celiac friendly options I have been pleased.

    The server was not knowledgeable about GF options. She went and asked the chef never offered me a GF menu. I took a stab in the dark and ordered the salmon with no sauce. The food is good but I remarked to my friend I was surprised they didn’t have a gluten-free menu. If they have one they should offer to everyone.

    My girlfriend ordered the GF Shepherd's Pie and had a terrible reaction that night. She wasn't sure if it was the pie and had the leftovers the next night. She had an equal reaction. We cannot trust Cheesecake Factory's GF menu and will not be back.

    Got the salmon and substituted green beans and got the mashed potatoes. Excellent. Got the Godiva cheesecake. Super yummy. I have had good experiences with Cheesecake factory’s across the country but I always make sure to be clear about needing gluten free and cross contamination. Always ask with cheesecake to use a clean spatula and wash hands first.

    This was a bad experience. The staff had no idea what was gluten free and what was not so they took a guess. (NOT SMART) On the menu 3 or 4 foods were marked as GF but not many marked at all. I got the grilled chicken, green beans and mashed potatoes. Then i got the GF godiva cheesecake. A few minutes later i felt the pain. I do not what know what caused it but i will NEVER go here again. DO NOT GO HERE!!!!!!!

    They have gluten free options and the fries are in a dedicated fryer. Wish the gluten free menu was a separate menu as the little GF you need to look for is small since the lights are low making it difficult to see. The Godiva cheesecake is NOT gluten free. The sundae is but it’s huge, you will need to share.

    Even though items are listed as gluten free. They are not. I ordered the gluten-free shrimp with pasta. As I was eating I noticed a regular pasta noodle mixed in with the gluten-free pasta. When I called the manager over to complain, and let him know that I would probably be sick for a few days, he told me they probably used the same strainer for both types of pasta, which is unacceptable. As predicted, I did get sick. I also complained to the corporate office

Felt like a lot of good humans who really wanted to make it right for my daughter. Couldn’t ask for more.

    if you don't enjoy a snarky attitude about your food intolerances, skip the long wait and go elsewhere. Also the hostess doesn't think it's her job to know ( or ask her boss) if there is a gf menu (it's actually marked on the main menu). And now that they added gluten to lettuce wraps- I'm out!

    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.

    Server was attentive to concerns. Ordered gf- salmon with mashed potatoes and spinach (the server said broccoli and asparagus are cooked in pasta water), gf godiva cheesecake. Food was delicious, but had headache by the end of the meal. Full blown celiac attack. Further research on websites say do not eat anything Godiva if you have allergies & that cross contam is very hard to control at CF even when allergies are noted.

    Sad to say they have no idea about gf here. I asked some questions, waitress disappeared for 10 mins until I asked for a manager. Manager explained two items, one that I shouldn't get because it had soy, and one that had dairy. When I tried to explain that those items did not contain gluten she said she thought they did because 'someone' had said they did. No trading at all.

They appolagized and made my order free. over all the service was slow and I will not go there again. I did not have cheesecake because I don't like it, but if you like cheese cake then maybe try it.

    Really? I find it hard to believe anyone had a decent experience at the fashion mall Indianapolis location. When discussion gf needs due to celiac, the waitress told me there was absolutely nothing I could eat there safely. I was a bit embarrassed since I was with a group so I just asked for some type of fruit in a bowl. She returned to tell me they weren't comfortable serving me as "there was flour all over back there". I was mortified, felt like they were saying "my kind weren't welcome there". I wanted to crawl out. Not to mention that was another gift card I had to give away.

    I have had good experiences here in the past, but stopped coming back after I found crouton pieces in my salad the last 3 times. Server was nice about it, but when we tried to tell someone higher up about the repeated problem and that ingesting gluten has serious effects on celiacs, we were condescendingly told that they "know it can cause a tummy-ache." Not careful or knowledgeable.

    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.

    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.
