Staff knows the options but the menu is deceptive. For example: you can get a “gluten free Cesar salad” but it’s not a Cesar salad. You give up not only the croutons but the dressing as well. Why not list that? Of the kids can get a gluten free Alfredo but not adults? Just weird and frustrating.

A limited number of gf items are itemised in the main menu. I asked for Shepherds Pie but that was off. I asked for the salmon dish, (mash and broccoli). It came with no broccoli and I thought I’d misremembered. The waitress did not return mid-meal, and when she came to collect plates and give dessert menu I checked main course and pointed out I had no broccoli. She said rudely “do you want it now?” My partner ordered burger no pickle. It came with pickle. So all in all, q a choice of gf food. Appalling service.

Ordered the salmon with mashed potatoes and broccoli. Server brought out my plate and informed me that the broccoli is cooked in same water as pasta and would I like a side salad instead. Thankful for awareness of cross contamination !

The Colonie New York location seems to have their act together now. I ordered the 4 cheese pasta and it was very good. The server seemed to understand celiac . She also remembered when it came time for desert and offered me the only gluten free cheesecake selection they have which is chocolate. Will certainly go again.

They've updated their GF menu and retrained their staff. Their second attempt at GF is a success, and I feel completely safe eating there.

Upon request, they bring me a nicely toasted Udi's roll so I don't feel left out when they bring my honey a bread basket. My favorite meals are the French Country Salad and the Corn Tamale Cakes. Four or five visits and no problems.

They are amazing. It was my favorite before I could eat gluten and still is. So many options and the cheeseburger with gluten free bun was amazing with gluten free dressing for the salad.

Although there are gluten free options there seems to be a lot of issues with staff knowledge. Fries are marked as gluten free on the menu but they are not cooked in a dedicated fryer. Only two salad dressings are ok and server had to check several times to see what was safe.

EDIT January 19: Although a few dishes are clearly marked GF, servers seem to be very inconsistently trained on the subject. Fries are supposedly gluten free, but I was told they are only available when there is a clean fryer available. Was also told during my previous visit that the sauce on my burger wasn't safe, but this time I was assured the same sauce was indeed safe. East here at your own risk, because I sure don't trust them. Get your shit straight, Cheesecake Factory.

-------------

Hadn't gone here in a while, because they couldn't seem to find me something gluten free off their menu.

Well, apparently they've got a new menu with clearly marked GF items and options now! Also, GF hamburger buns and gluten free fries!

Americana Cheeseburger A++! Will go again!

Although pasta was listed as GF on menu, when we called, they said they use the same pasta water as non GF pasta. Be aware of this!

However, once we sorted that out with the nice servers on the phone, I ordered something else that was listed as GF and it was fine!

They told my their fryer was a designated one and at the bottom of my fries there was fried onion ring pieces. I was so sick that night.

Hello, this is my first review. I was diagnosed with Celiac yesterday but this is my first review. I was nervous to eat here because I am still getting used to ordering special and gluten free. Normally I would have gotten whatever I wanted but because this was my first official time ordering gluten free my options were limited. They have a huge menu, but limited gluten free options. There were some pastas, burgers, chicken dishes, salads, and omelette dishes. I settled for a turkey burger with a gluten free bun. The waitress was not surprised to hear a gluten free request and asked about accommodations. My burger came out and looked good. I’m pretty sure they brought me a beef patty instead of turkey, but i was more worried about my first GF bun! To my surprise it was really good. I have had bites of my mom’s GF buns before and know that there are some really bad tasting ones out there. With having regular buns lately I can honestly say that the taste was really good and close to what a good non-GF bun would taste like. The fries were good and also GF. Overall it was a really good meal. I can’t speak for cross contamination because I am symptomless and don’t react to gluten in anyway, so there is no fallout after eating gluten. I hope this review helps!

Very inconsistent with what is and not gluten free. Told something different every time. Even the managers have no idea what’s going on.
