Prior to going to the restaurant, we called to make sure there were policies in place to prevent cross contamination and that they used a separate pot and water to boil gluten free pasta. The manager assured us that they would be careful. When we ordered, we made sure to tell the server that our child had celiac and could not have gluten. When the food was brought, we asked again to make sure. As my daughter ate, she said she felt like the pasta had gluten, but we assured her it was fine. I wish we had trusted her instincts because she was severely sick the next day. I saw that there were positive reviews for this place and maybe this was a bad night, but we can no longer trust this place.

absolutely the worst experience ive ever had. the food not only came late but came with fries which are NOT gluten free because they are fried with flour-coated items. and the replacement food came late too with the inside of the burger being rather cold. and, despite not having any sort of bun on the burger, i still got contaminated and suffered the consequences. i do not recommend this place at all.

I had a mai tai and Hawaiian fish burger with a gluten free bun. For a chain restaurant, it was good and I was glad they had customized the menu for the location. The server was knowledgeable and helped me out with safe food choices.

I’d give 0 stars if I could. They couldn’t even guarantee a bowl of strawberries would be safe. Ended up getting soda and tea the whole meal and eating snacks I packed in case

I've gone to this Cheesecake Factory location a few times and always order the same GF pasta. They have several GF pasta options and GF buns for burgers available upon request. Every time I order the GF pasta they seem knowledgeable. When the food comes out, they always say "GF pasta" before setting the plate down. I can tell it's GF pasta since the original dish comes with penne and the GF pasta is fusili. I've never gotten sick after being here. Would recommend!

I ordered their only GF salad & GF cheesecake. I’m uncertain which made me sick. But I’m sooooo sick. I don’t know if it is full blown gluten yet or just cross-contamination….but it feels like I ate gluten.
