Would NOT recommend any of their pastas. I ordered one of their pastas with gluten free noodles and said I had an allergy, but there weren’t few wheat noodles found in my pasta. I got very sick.

The food tasted great! I ordered a Hamburger and French fries, under the assurance it was gluten free and they even have a separate fryer for gluten safety.... GOT GLUTENED. I think they aren’t careful and I also think that when you say “Gluten Free - I am Gluten Allergic - I have Celiac” waiters think Gluten Free Preference, which is completely different than Gluten allergic, and they don’t care. Great food, just not safe.

The food was delicious, but I found regular spaghetti noodles that weren't gluten free in my gluten free pasta. They were nice about it, but I can't help but think they cooked it in the same water as regular noodles which is scary.

I was very impressed with the Cheesecake Factory in Birmingham, Alabama. They offer a GF bun and understand that it can not be toasted with the regular bread. They also are aware of cross contamination. The fries are in a completely separate vat and again they are not cooked with regular food. The waitress was very knowledgeable and assured me that the restaurant had taken precautions to ensure that the food was gluten free.

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 was traveling from out of town and I’ve always had good experiences with this chain. Extensive gluten free menu. Gluten free cheesecake. However, my experience at this location was horrible. I repeatedly explained my gluten free choice was allergy. I knew I was in trouble when I was served the wrong cheesecake! Not gluten free. Sure enough, when we got the receipt she hadn’t even rung my meal in as gluten free. I had a terrible reaction and was so so sick.

The fries are cooked separately from other breaded items. I did not have any reaction and the food was very good. Staff was very knowledgeable

Ate here recently and got the gf four cheese pasta and gf chocolate cheesecake. Came out delicious and safe. Just ask for the manager, clean water, and the usual and it came out great. I don’t get whipped cream on my cheesecake out of extra caution but you can ask if they have any safe ones :)
