    I love this restaurant. I recommend their burgers (gluten free buns are available), their fries have a designated GF fryer, AND they have a Godiva chocolate cheesecake. If you mention you have an allergy the waiters/waitresses seem to be aware and careful.

    I used to go to Cheesecake Factory all the time because they had a pretty good gluten free menu. But a few weeks ago they completely re-designed their menu and many of the GF options were eliminated (Bring back the eggplant sandwich!!). They currently have GF buns but they're not listed on the new menu at all. That makes me think they will only be available until the current stock runs out. Very disappointing.

    The waiter did such a poor job managing my gf/cf requests that he ducked out and had someone else get my order right 25 minutes after my kids already had their food. I am celiac and fear the violent sick reaction from gluten or dairy. Not just a fad diet. This place gave me no feeling of confidence.

    I have celiac disease I went here today for lunch. I was very careful and checked with both the hostess before sitting down and with my server before ordering. Both assured me that they treat gluten as an allergy and that I would be fine eating there. Although they assured me that I would be fine as I was eating I realized there was a gluten noodle in my pasta that I had accidentally eaten. I will now most likely be very sick from this. I altered the staff and both my server and manager were very apologetic and did not make me pay but I will never eat here again and I wouldn't recommend it for anyone with celiac disease or even a gluten allergy.

    Items are gluten free upon request and are mixed into the regular menu. Corn tortilla chips are not gluten free at this location because they do not have a dedicated gluten free fryer but are working towards that.

    Everything was good but my pasta had a regular noodle in it and it honestly was not worth the $20. I would only go for dessert and appetizers.

    So I walk in ask the host if they have a Gluten free menu and he says yes! I then ask (as all celiacs must do)If they had separate fryers for non gluten items like fries. He says yes! I say great we will take a table. Our server arrives I ask him about the fryers he said he had to check with kitchen. When he comes back he said that yes they are safe and fried separately. Great so I order burger GF bun and fries. Simple enough right? So after about 20 mins he comes over to tell me that he is going on break and introduced our new server. She comes back 10 mins later and tells me that the fries are safe and being cooked separately. I never mentioned this to her but I was glad she knew what was up. ANOTHER 30 mins goes by. So now it's been an hour since ordering. At this point the manager comes over and says that they can't make the fries separately and that they never do. I let him know that 3 people told me otherwise and it is marked GF on their menu. He apologizes and offers me a side salad instead. I say ok cause we were starving and annoyed. After all this the "salad" he brought out was literally a tiny bowl of nothing but lettuce. Not one tomato, shred of carrot....nothing. Nothing was taken off our bill. About an hour and half for this nonsense. FAIL. Corporate will be getting a letter and I have never done that.

    The food was good, I felt the GF section was limited. basically about 20 percent of the menu. seemed to be use to handling Gf request. nice dinning area for a big chain.

    I got glutened. I have eaten here many times in the past and while the service is always terrible the gf food is usually safe. As a Celiac I always make sure to tell them of my condition and order gf items w/o substitutions. I recently had an early dinner (4pm) so it is not like they were busy, I was assured the pasta was gf only to get violently ill. I was very disappointed since they do have a decent selection but I can't go back bc I can't trust that the gf food is safe.

    Unfortunately didn't eat here for the following reason - the man at the front desk assured me there was a dedicated fryer for fries but when I asked the person serving us she looked concerned saying she thought the same oil was used for other things. She checked in the kitchen and the chef said definitely don't have the fries if you need gluten free. The menu looked very good and the woman serving us was great and I used to love Cheesecake Factory before being diagnosed but just to warn any celiacs - at this particular restaurant - don't have the fries!

    This was my first, and last, time at this restaurant. When we sat down I explained to be waitress that we are gluten free. We ordered our food and she asked if we would like gluten free pasta or another kind. When we completed our order she said that she would bring over bread and butter. I asked her whether they have gluten free bread in the restaurant and her answer was "Oh, no, we do not. Would you like some of the other bread?" My pasta was really undercooked. Due to time constraints I just ate what I could. Even after I let the management know, I was not offered a discount on the meal, which was poorly prepared.

    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) I got the grilled chicken green beans and mashed potatoes. Then i got the 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!!!!!!!

    DO NOT EXPECT TOTALLY GLUTEN FREE. Everything can be cross contaminated. They have a lot of choices, if you can handle the chance of getting some gluten. We are not celiac but have still had some problems eating there, even when ordering the gluten free items. Cheesecake Factory is not very clear on their menu that things can be cross contaminated. For example, everything is cooked in the same fryer.

    Although they mark many options as "gluten-free" on their menu, it would be wise to ask about the preparation of the specific item you are ordering. After I inquired further, I was informed that anything in the fryer (although many are labeled gluten free) are not celiac safe, as they do not have dedicated fryers. Such a bummer, since one wouldn't necessarily even think to ask about fryers as things that are fried are specifically labeled as gluten free.
