    Went to the one in Princeton nj. In Quaker town mall today. Was all excited to order off the new gf menu. And when my pasta came I said to the server are you sure this is gluten free? It taste and looks too good. She said yes. Than a free mins. Later the waiter runs over and asks me if its ok that it's not gluten free? Huh? I didn't hear that. The music was kind of loud I thought he was asking me is it ok cause it's not the fuseli pasta it's the angel hair. But my mom herd him and said it louder! No it's not ok! I've been gf for 7 years for a reason! If I wanted to get sick and eat gluten I would choose to eat a croissant !!!! The manager says they dropped the ball. I said they need better training . Lesson , can't trust restaurant service! Great. I asked how am I going to come hear and eat???? Enjoyed the guacamole . Hope the chips were really gf.? Only put the star cause I had to. They should have a better system if there going to provide a gf menu they better actually serve it to you. And put a simple sign for it for Pete sakes! And get better communication!!! It's just not right!

    Gluten free menu but not celiac friendly. Staff not knowledgeable enough to properly serve someone with celiac disease. Plates are always dirty so who knows what was on there. Nice to offer the gluten free menu but they really need to be properly trained in gluten free preparation.

    they don't have a gluten free menu, so I order plain chicken or fish no seasoning or sauces. they do have a cloudless cheesecake with no crust though that's pretty good and I've never had a problem with it (:

    First off, I will say the manager and the waitress were great. I ordered from the gluten-free options. I got steak and mashed potatoes and asparagus. I informed the waitress I had celiac. Unfortunately my Nima sensor tested the steak and the mashed potatoes as positive for gluten. The manager was very interested in my sensor, And was trying to troubleshoot why they showed up as gluten positive.

    Despite ordering something marked "GF upon request" and specifying my need for it to be gluten-free, my broccoli had several spaghetti noodles in it. Clearly cooked in a shared pot. Not at all celiac friendly - avoid like the plague.

    They have gluten free items marked on their menu be sure to state that you would like the dish gluten free and specify that you have an allergy. I ordered the chicken taco lettuce wraps and they were delicious. I am very sensitive to cross contamination and I did not get sick. At another location I ordered the gluten free pasta and got very sick so I would advice caution against the pasta.

    Staff not trained well on gluten free food and when asked what wasn't gluten free in a salad the reply was I have no idea. Not something any celiac really wants to hear and had to ask multiple times for the food we ordered to be gluten free.

    This location is NOT celiac safe. When we came in, I talked to the server, and then also the manager. The manager assured me that there gluten free pasta with celiac safe and cooked in new water. He also assured me that he would walk back to the kitchen and talk to the chef. When my daughters gluten-free pasta came, right in the middle was a big gluten noodle. I would never trust eating here again.

    Review is in consideration of GF. Brunch, no GF bread offered, yet they have a hamburger bun that I could have had, untoasted. So you know the prep is limited for GF meaning be careful. Also, strange no alternative milks offered, for instance coconut, almond, etc. just not really a friendly food sensitivity restaurant. I guess they have not been paying attention around them.

    Went here last weekend for a friend's birthday because we knew there were gluten free options, and reviews said they were good about someone needing no cross contamination. The first item I ordered they were out of, so I reluctantly ordered one of there pastas with the gluten free noodles. I unfortunately took a few bites then started to portion out my dish, because I knew I couldn't eat it all unless I wanted to over eat. As I was doing g this I found several macaroni noodles (not gluten free) in it. Before we could even leave the restaurant I was already having problems. The only positive is that the server and manager were very swift to take action and make sure I was alright and regularly checked on me while my friends finished their meals.

This place loses 2 stars, not for gf but I just don't think the food is worth the wait or price. however, if you are simply wondering if it is gluten free then 5 stars and 2 thumbs up since this place is very gf friendly! although they don't offer gf cheesecake they do have a gf dessert option. although I usually don't eat here it is very gf friendly.

They both spoke to the chef and line to make sure of no cross contamination. Ended our meal with the Godiva double chocolate cheesecake for dessert. Alejandro and Robb, thanks for making our eating experience a one in a lifetime! Will definitely return!

    My celiac daughter ordered gluten free pasta from the kid's menu. It was very tasty but I fear there must be cross contamination as she immediately felt ill afterwards. If cross contamination is not a worry for you, the menu is extensive with many GF options. Unfortunately only one cheesecake is listed as GF option.

    We have never had a good experience at the Cheesecake Factory- it's highly over rated. Save your money & go else where. The food is just mediocre & they really don't care about food allergies. They need to educate their waitstaff of what gluten is.

    For the most part, their gluten-free menu is trustworthy. However, while I dined at a Cheesecake Factory in California, I was talked into having the Godiva flourless gluten-free cheesecake. I had a reaction. If I had to guess, it was either the piece of chocolate that was on top, or maybe they had used a serving piece that had been used to serve other kinds of cheesecake.

    I always note my allergy and have never had a problem here (I also had good waiters). In my opinion, for a chain restaurant they have pretty good options. Pretty good pasta and the herb chicken is pretty good too. They even have a cheesecake, which is better than no cheesecake at all.

    I loved going to the Cheesecake Factory until recently. I usually order pasta and salad. Every time I go, I ask which salad dressings are gluten free and I ALWAYS get a different answer. Lately I have been getting different types of pasta noodles as well. I ask over and over if they are sure it is gluten free pasta. Each time they reassure me. Needless to say, I spoke with a manager and only one type of pasta is gluten free. That means that half the time I've been eating there, I am getting a meal full of gluten!!! I feel sick after I eat there every time now. I will not be returning. They don't understand Celiac or even what gluten is.

    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.

    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.
