I went here for my birthday with some coworkers. The food was delicious, but I ended up getting sick. I ordered a pasta listed as being gluten-free with modifications and the chocolate flourless cheesecake also listed as gluten-free with modifications. I had read about others getting sick from the cheesecake because of a chocolate powder so I specifically asked not to have this and any other modifications that needed to be made for gluten-free. They seemed confident it was safe. They also noted that my pasta was made gluten-free when they brought it out to me. I'm confident the noodles were gluten-free noodles but are not so confident in the preparation as there were bits of broccoli in my pasta as if they might've cooked the noodles in the vegetable water. This is fine as broccoli is gluten-free but makes me questions cross-contamination steps. I'm not sure which or if both items were what caused me to get sick. I would not recommend for a Celiac as I can't say with any confidence that I think they take the necessary steps for cross-contamination or that the staff is very knowledgeable of what steps need to be made and what gluten is. If you only have an intolerance it is probably fine.

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!!!!!!!

We had the corn cakes and lettuce wraps from the guiltless menu as well as a Godiva cheesecake no whip. I had plenty of options to choose from for food. My only complaint is that there is only one cheesecake that is GF and it would be so easy to make more. Just eliminate the crust!

I had the gluten free Shepards Pie and got instantly sick after dinner. I also got the gluten free cheesecake which was wonderful. I don't know which one got me sick.

They have a variety of gluten free options. It is a little frustrating that they only have one gluten free cheesecake.

Though the menu says that they have a lot of gluten free options, when I asked I found out that the GF pasta is made in the same water as normal pasta so it is very contaminated. My waitress was sweet but didn’t understand how serious I was about my allergy. I ended up getting grilled chicken, green beans, and mashed potatoes and didn’t get sick. Definitely be very cautious and ask the right questions before ordering.

I’ve been to other cheesecake factories that didn’t want to accept responsibility. These guys take you seriously, which is refreshing. It’s not a huge portion of the menu that they offer gluten free but they do have some items and the food was good and I didn’t get sick. Am celiac and sensitive

I’ve been to other cheesecake factories and usually have the GF shepherd’s pie, never been glutened. Ordered it and mentioned “shepherds pie prepared gluten free, please, it’s an allergy” waiter didn’t write anything down, red flag #1. when the plate came a different person dropped it, that should’ve been red flag #2, I turned to ask the person but they ran away fast. About 15 min after finishing I’m stuck in the parkmeadow’s mall bathrooms which all have broken locks on the stall doors. Wonderful.
