very limited choice on menu (2 indicated as allergy friendly, but chef is willing to make more options gluten free on request), staff quite knowledgable and double check with chef about food items, felt safe eating here

Options are very limited (2 choices). Chef only comes out after special request (you have to ask again after informing hostess and server). Chef had to go back and check on cross contamination potential.

We only went here because the previous reviews looked like they might actually get it.

The only appetizer we could get was a bowl of cheese and potato chips ($10.99? Really?). Disappointing. Our server was clueless about what was safe or not and had to go ask at least 5 times. We were told that a chef would come out and discuss options and that did not happen.

Ended up getting what tasted like a microwave lunch (pasta and marinara). It was way over priced for a bowl of very bland GF Quinoa pasta with 2 pieces of chicken (maybe).

$70 for lunch that was not worth eating. We actually ended up getting something later elsewhere because husband and son were so disappointed

This place was fantastic. They had a chef come out and explain what they had as a gluten free option. Chicken fajitas were delicious. The atmosphere alone was well worth it.

Chef came out to the table and explained what was Gluten Free and also dairy free for me. Took my order on a separate allergy ticket and said he would follow that through the kitchen from start to finish. He was friendly and super knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend the Rainforest Cafe in Nashville.

Not very many gluten free options, and way over priced for what's offered. They do keep everything very separate, so it is celiac friendly, but still would not recommend.

Ate here over the weekend and was very pleasantly surprised. The chef came out and talked to me about my options. He was very concerned and knowledgeable about gluten. I got the queso dip with ground beef added and it was delicious! They use a shared fryer for tortilla chips, so they brought me kettle chips to go with it. It sounds odd, but it was really good. Honestly the dip was so good I could've eaten it off tree bark and it would've been fine! Definitely recommend.

The chef came out and explained to me the items on the menu that he could change to become gluten free. He gave me all the options for sides and he was thorough in his descriptions. I didnt feel judged or awkward by stating that I had a gluten intolerance. They were really helpful and i didnt get sick.

When I told the server about my gluten allergy, he happily went and got the manager to come and take my order. Food was good and I was really pleased at how pleasant and helpful the manager was.

The chef came out to discuss my allergy. She said she would make sure my food was gluten free. Our appetizer was queso and the chips were fried in the same dryer as fried menu items so she made my chips special. I would feel comfortable coming back.

I had the same experience as others. The chef came out as soon as I told the server I had Celiac. He went over the menu with me and told me what I could and could not have. My meal was delicious and best of all I did not get sick!

Food was ok, even gluten items (I do not have celiac but my 7 year old does ) we came for more of a kid friendly experience and it was ok. I had never been here before and I kind of expected more. Food didn’t seem to bother her but gf selections were minimal

Informed server in a highly sensitive celiac, and asked if she would please inform the cook. Ordered a salad with italian dressing I was told was gluten free. Finished 3/4 of my salad and found a crouton. 🙄🤬 Dinner came, assured me 3 time it was gluten free 🙄 I'm currently bloated and nauseous 🤢 I was so hungry, hasn't eaten all day... I'm so sorry I didn't just go hungry and wait for the nearly 3 hour drive home 🤢😭

The chef came out and went over our options, and took our order.

The anaconda pasta was great. I added shrimp, and it was super yummy. My son had a burger with their gf bun, and he linked that as well as the fries.

We went today, which they are offering a limited menu due to the COVID19 pandemic. There was only one gluten free meal on the menu. They did have burgers you can make gluten free. Server did go ask management if there was anything else but was told there was the only singular gluten free option. It was good just a little greasy
