    They advertise as gluten free and that there is no cross contamination. And yet I got sick there three consecutive times in a row. The employees need to get better training there in terms of gluten allergies and to be aware that it is an actual health issue for people and not just a stupid fad.

    They have tons of gluten free food. I spoke with them at wave length about cross contamination and they could not have been nicer. They seemed to totally get it. Manager came over a lot to help. Felt like a lot of good humans who really wanted to make it right for my daughter. Couldn’t ask for more.

    They have all there GF items marked on the menu. Salads, burgers, fish, pastas. French fries in dedicated fryer. I had an appetizer of corn mesa cakes topped with avocado and sour cream and salsa. It was very good. The waitress we had (HB location) was knowledgeable and had family with celiac and told us she would have the chefs be careful about cross contamination. I have celiac and I didn't get sick so I'm guessing it was all prepared safely as possible in a kitchen that has gluten also. I will go back.

    I have eaten at 3 different locations and gotten sick every time. I ordered pasta the last 2 times and they both came out with Gluten noodles. The 2nd time I caught it before eating. they were nice about it. But it was kinda frustrating to me because I told the waiter that I would get very sick if I ate it and she said she would tell the chef to be careful. The GF menu is a good size and has good options. The food was good besides the fact that I got sick. There chefs could use more training on GF. If you are risky enough it has good food. Just becareful. Hope this helps

    I’m not sure if cross contamination happened just to me or is a widespread problem at CF. I would not recommend eating there with an extreme sensitivity to gluten or celiac.

    My family and I visited CF in Birmingham and were so pleasantly surprised. My daughter (20) has just been diagnosed with Celiac and we are still very much in the learning phase. She spoke with our waiter, John, who was very knowledgeable about their GF options and also showed her items on the menu that were not listed as gluten free that could easily be modified to be gluten free. Big fan of this place for being nice, accommodating and providing lots of GF on the menu!

    I have Celiac and I called prior to dinner to make sure they had GF options. I talked to the server when ordering. Ate 1/3 plate of GF garlic chicken pasta and 1/2 of a slice of GF Godiva chocolate cheesecake and 15 min later, I was doubled over in pain. Was the only meal I had eaten yesterday. After a long night of being sick, I looked at the receipt and my husband and I were charged for a non-GF pasta and non-GF cheesecake. Thinking now, that despite having called in advance, speaking with the server and having them bring out my dish while stating that it was GF; it was not. Very sick and very frustrated. Do *NOT* eat here. **Edit: I called this morning and spoke with a manager. She was very nice and very apologetic. Although it doesn’t make up for the effects of being glutened, she refunded my card the price of my meal. ** Edit #2: after multiple phone calls, I still have not received my refund..

    I’m very disappointed at the Cheesecake Factory. Last time I went, I wanted some of their Alfredo. On their menu, it states that their Alfredo sauce is GF, but I asked the server and he said it was not. The only reason it gets 2 stars, is because they had some really good GF Cheesecake. I DO NOT recommend this place unless you only want Cheesecake. Only one flavor too. Dove Chocolate. It was good, but I would definitely appreciate it if they added more.

    Ridiculous that they have GF fries on the menu but do not serve them. Managers excuse was that they have 12.5 million dollar in French fry sales so they can't possibly provide extra space for us GF people even though it's on the menu. When I suggested that they take it off the menu, he had an excuse for that too- tried blaming it all on the server. My daughter has gotten her fries at another cheesecake factory- which is just as busy so the managers excuse is not valid- just too lazy to enforce is m thought.

    I went to the Ridgedale Mall location, and staff seemed to be knowledgeable about gf menu options. However, within two hours I was sick after having a “gf” shrimp and pasta. I was too sick to even attempt to eat my maybe gf Godiva chocolate cheesecake....On the bright side, at least my meal was tasty for the few hours it was with me.

    While in the midst of our travels we stopped here. Food tasted great but I had major issues while driving with limited stops on highway. I ordered Gf burger plain and a salad with ranch--no croutons. Both were listed as could be Gf options on menu and I was told ranch was gf. I told server I had wheat allergy, needed clean utensils when preparing food to prevent cross contamination, etc--my typical spiel. I was miserable not long after leaving. Would NOT recommend dining at this location, especially if you are traveling. I've had success at other locations.

    This place just awful. It’s unsafe. After sending back a GF shrimp pasta dish because the shrimp was breaded, the returned with a new dish with grilled shrimp but the pasta was not GF. Unfortunately, we did not know until after my wife ate a 1/3rd of the dish. Way to ruin a birthday dinner.

    Ordered the gluten free Americana cheeseburger but unfortunately, it was glutened. The restaurant server and manager were very apologetic when I showed them the test result. They took it back, didn't charge me and even gave a gluten free Godiva cheesecake on the house. While the service was great, the burgers are still not a safe choice here

    Be very careful here. They have items on their menu that are marked as gluten free even though they go in the same fryer with everything else. This might be a safe place for someone who is gluten sensitive but if you have celiac, I would steer clear.

    Waitress very helpful. I’m gluten free vegetarian... has the tamales as an appetizer and the gluten free primavera pasta for dinner. I asked the server about the pasta ( are you sure this is gluten free ) she responded that the GF pasta is always the rotini ( spirals ) that’s how they ensure it’s the right one ... the Godiva cheesecake is on the GF menu ... but I’m unsure about Godiva being gluten free.. waitress assured us it was ... but I skipped it. The Food was delicious !!!

    I've been here dozens of times and I always order the same thing, gluten free 4 cheese pasta. (Thankful not to have a dairy allergy). One time, a few years ago, it came out with the wrong noodles, which I noticed immediately, because they are a different shape than the gf spirals. They also quickly realized the mistake and the waitress and manager came running out to make sure I didn't eat it. They were proactive, sincerely apologized, made me a new one and didn't charge my husband and I for our meal, at their insistence. Very good customer service and they kept us as customers. It's smart of them to have a different shape for gf pasta, so I knew not to eat it!

    After waiting almost an hour to get our food, my son started eating his GF pasta dish and found a piece of gluten pasta in it. The manager said “I’m sorry” and walked off. Will never eat here again after how we were treated - my son had even talked with our waitress extensively before ordering about him being a sensitive Celiac and could they please be extra careful 😳

    I appreciate anytime a restaurant has gf items listed on the full menu, however after several visits to Cheesecake Factory it is confirmed that this is not the place to go if you have celiac. They have brought regular bread with breakfast, regular pasta instead of gf (Thankfully I asked but by the time my meal came everyone else in the party was done eating. CCF did not offer to compensate in any way). Bread crumbs to top gluten free pasta I ordered on a to-go order. They put a piece of chocolate that is not gf on the gf Godiva cheesecake... I always leave this restaurant sick. It is a shame, wish they would get it together.

    My daughter has celiac disease and we asked them to prepare her gluten-free macaroni and cheese safely. About halfway through her meal she noticed a piece of spaghetti in her penne pasta. We have no idea if any of it was gluten-free or how that piece of pasta got in there. At the very least it was contaminated. I will not return.

    This Cheesecake Factory doesn’t have a separate fryer for French fries. Idk about others. They fry fries in the same fryer as chicken fingers ect. They are labeled gf. If you’re gluten free & order fries, you’ll get cross contaminated. I asked the server about the fryers. I learned my lesson from Applebee’s. They do the same thing. The server was new so got the manager. I tried to explain to the manager about fries being fried in a shared fryer are no longer gf & they’re making people sick so either take them off the menu or get a separate fryer. I’m also going to call corporate.

    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!

    We were excited about gluten free options however the waitress was unsure about gluten free. she didn't know if there was gluten free buns for the hamburger. so we ordered without bread and asked about French fries she said that she would check it out. when she brought the food to the table, there was buns on it and french fries before confirming that it was gluten free. she made us nervous and lost our appetite. wished the waitress was trained better. we are not going back. we have celiac so we have to be very careful about food obviously.

    I was excited to try it out because it was my first time there ever (before diagnosis and now both) and I knew they had a bunch of options. The server was so incredibly nice and willing to do whatever we needed. I got GF pasta in the Farfalle with Chicken and Roasted Garlic and I had 5 bites before I felt so bad. I had a reaction very quick (after not having eaten all day so no prior contaminated food) and it was very bad. We came from out of town and I had to deal with an hour ride back smelling the leftover food that made me sick and feeling sick to my stomach.
