For a chain, I can always count on their GF menu to be consistent from place to place . We had the GF corn cakes as an appetizer and I enjoyed the GF Shepherds Pie.

Waiter seemed kind of knowledge about gluten free options on the menu. (GF options are labeled on the regular menu) He knew the GF pasta was cooked in separate water than the non-GF pasta, and that the hamburgers were cooked on a grill that only cooked GF food. I ended up ordering a turkey burger with a GF bun and a side of salad. I did not get the side of fries because waiter was “pretty sure” the frier was GF. When I received my burger, I was disappointed to see that all the toppings except lettuce and tomato had been removed because the toppings (like mushrooms in a garlic sauce) weren’t GF. I wasn’t told that before I ordered (I also didn’t ask, I’m learning to be more specific with my questions)

I didn’t get sick from eating there, always a plus 👌

Gluten free items are clearly marked on this chain's menu. I ordered the lunch sized salmon which was standard fare. My lunch came out after my non-gluten free family's. The waitress said that they had originally made my plate with broccoli (which is cooked in pasta water). They substituted for sauteed green beans.

Read reviews of the American restaurants that this resto is unsafe but decided to try it myself at the Toronto location. DONT GO. They had some GF items listed on the menu but it’s such a large restaurant that they don’t give enough care to celiac clients. Pretty sure my GF tacos were actually flour tortillas and k was unwell the next day. There are some GF cheesecake options which I’m a bit more confident about because they’re pre-made. But do yourself a favour and go somewhere else to be safe

*update* Since that great experience I have been back twice. The first time, the server told me that they could NOT cook the gf pasta in separate water so I had to get a bun less burger. Oh well.

The second time, I ordered the garlic pasta again and this time the server went and asked the chef if they could accommodate to prevent cc. He assured me they could. However, I had a reaction shortly thereafter. They just don’t seem consistent.

*original post* Had a great experience and the server was knowledgeable. She asked if it was an allergy or preference. When I told her, she said the cooks will change their gloves, etc. Items on menu are marked with gf options. I asked about the gf pasta and she said they will cook it in separate water from regular pasta.

I’ve ordered gluten free from them multiple times and feel the overall quality of Cheesecake Factory has gone downhill. It’s tasteless.

The entire wait staff were incredibly attentive to my requests for gluten free dietary needs. They even came back to tell me one of the dressings I thought was gluten free, wasn’t and offered another! Wow! Great attention to detail! So appreciative of them. I celebrated my 48th birthday and was able to also get the gluten free/sugar free cheesecake with strawberries which was amazing! I waiting 24 hours to write this review to ensure no side effects.
