Update- had dinner on 8/26/19. They were awesome. My husband and I had a great time. He’s not GF but everything we ordered was. The dippers were great from the cheese coarse to the chocolate. They explained everything and made sure we knew what was and wasn’t GF.

Update- Had dinner there 1/3/19. They were fantastic. They have gf down and are extremely knowledgeable. I had a great meal.

I had dinner there two days ago 6/19/18. It was amazing. I dined with non-celiac friends so needless to say I was concerned about cross contamination. It was great! We had cheese and chocolate, which were both gluten free. Instead of having the whole table deal with the gluten free dippers ( bread), I opted to get separate bowls to put my cheese and chocolate selections in although there was no way to keep it hot. I took my portion first. They brought out separate dippers for me on a glass tray, not the wooden one. The waiter told me about each ingredient as he put everything together. They used Udis multigrain rolls which worked well with the cheese along with apples and veggies. I also got GF brownies, snickerdoodles, and marshmallows to go with my fruit for the chocolate. Definitely would recommend. They are also approved by the GIG. https://www.gluten.org/branchnews/gluten-intolerance-group-awards-melting-pot-restaurants-inc-gffs-certification/

Had a fabulous experience! The waitress was extremely knowledgeable and accommodating. The gluten free bread, brownie, and snickerdoodle cookies were delicious. We will be back.

Worked with Gluten Intolerance Group on their gluten-free menu. Special training is required for staff.

Yin and Yang chocolate course.
Protein course.  We opted for chicken and shrimp. The sauces were all GF. They have a teriyaki one that wasn’t. They informed us it would not be brought out.

The waiter asked the manager to join us when I wanted to ask questions about the menu and cross contamination practices. Most of the menu is capable of being made gluten free. The manager recommended the entire table be gluten free. The other option would be for me to scoop the cheese fondue on my plate before others dipped in. They brought out the GF bread so the rest of the party could taste it before agreeing to eat an entirely GF meal. It was quite good, so the manager looked up the brand for me. The cheese fondue was made with GF beer and cornstarch. A few meat items (teriyaki) were off limits. I was told to order without the croutons and nuts on the salad. I didn’t try the chocolate, but it was apparently fabulous on the fruit. And I’m not sick!

We took my 80 year old Mom for her birthday along with my 20 year old Celiac son. Amazing dinner. Got the 4 course. Cheese course had GF bread. Main course the server knew the couple of meats that weren’t GF and the one sauce. And the dessert was so yummy! GF brownies and snickerdoodle cookies (Udi brand) along with fresh fruit and marshmallows. We all loved it so much. Server was very knowledgeable! Well done Melting Pot! I suggest the entire table go gluten free so you don’t have to keep track of dipping in the wrong pot. We did that with a table of 5 and was wonderful. No one missed out on anything since the food was so good
