They gave me the wrong dressing on my greek salad, greek salad dressing is not sweet. Its already the only thing i can eat at Panera that doesn’t make me ill. I ate it and felt sick later and have no way of knowing if it was the salad dressing or something else i ate and now I’m scared to go back.

2019–I can eat the tomato soup with NO croutons just fine. Many times and no reaction! I still get the green goddess salad if I’m starving. I don’t risk any other options. 2016 update- I have eaten the green goddess salad several times this summer with no reaction. Still not many choices for those with celiac or extreme sensitivities. If you risk it, order your meal separate from anyone else in your party. They get confused easily with allergy issues. 2015--Not many choices, but I understand and tend to avoid due to the amount of bread they have. I almost always get the turkey chili and a bag of chips and have had no GI issues after consuming this meal. I have had a few salads that were on the GFree menu but have had issues often and avoid them now.

I have completely knocked Panera off my list of possible places to eat. Even though they somewhat attempt to service and feed the gluten intolerant... It's just not happening. I have gotten sick off of salads from here.

No GF options except salads. No "hidden options" as well, at least w/ the people we talked to. a tad disappointing

I ordered off the gluten free menu. Manager reinforced to the cashier how to tag the order as gluten free and that she would notify the prep line. Order arrived and I found fried wonton wrappers under the apples on my salad. These were definitely not gluten free. I approached the prep person and she appeared confused, did not understand that the item contained gluten and was meant to be left off the salad. The manager apologized and prepared a new salad. Panera has the safety measures in place and the manager knew them, but if the employees on the prep line aren’t trained then the policies are useless.

Panera uses gluten in almost all their salad dressings and soups. Totally unsafe to eat their foods. Not to mention cross contamination.

They have an allergens list available. If you tell them you have an allergy, the manager makes your food themselves. Still can't guarantee no cross contamination but I got a salad and didn't have any issues.

I’ve eaten here twice. The asian salad gave me a slight stomach ache; the tomato soup made me full on sick. Both were on the GF menu, so I’m assuming that there is significant cross contamination.
