My husband and I ate here and loved it. Everything we ordered was gluten free just to keep it all safe. We got the 4 course meal starting with the cheese appetizer of spinach articoke dip, which came with some veggies and gluten free bread. Then we had salads, and then the Big Night Out proteins substituting the terriaki and ravioli out for extra filet. For dessert we got the flaming turtle which was served with amazing gf brownies and snickerdoodle cookies. Our server was very knowledgeable about gf items and even mentioned that the gf items were kept in a separate area. We would definitely go back!

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/

Be aware: They were able to accommodate my need to be Gluten free, however, this means that my wife also had to eat gluten free. I don’t like to force GF on her, especially when it’s date night and eating out.

We had a truly wonderful experience at the Melting Pot with our family. There were 7 of us in the party, two celiac who had to eat gluten free, the food was delicious and the two wait staff assigned to our table in a private room were over the top terrific, both so attentive to our dietary needs and explained everything about the food, the way to choose it, cook it, and not cross contaminate. They had gluten free bread options for the first course to dip the cheese into. We had our two kids who loved the experience of dipping and cooking and both devoured everything served. The cocktails and mocktails were delicious. No issues afterwards at all for our two family members who have celiac. The only thing we wished happened was we didn’t get so full and could have saved room for the chocolate dipping so we’ll definitely go back for dessert!

We eat here often. They take amazing care of us. They have a note on my account so every time I make a reservation, they know I’m gluten free. They even have gf bread dippers for the cheese as well as gf dessert dippers for chocolate. Many options for sensitive belly’s. Highly recommend!! Make sure to plan ahead & make a reservation as they get very busy. Also it is a long dinner so give yourself a couple hours to get through all your courses. Bring your appetite

Melting Pot was safe place for my family member with celiac disease. He’s able to have his own oil, own food, and they’re even able to tell him which sauces contain dairy (intolerance) as well. Only word of caution is from time to time, servers will lower a potato into the water to check the temperature of the oil, and more often than not when scooping up the potato they use their bare fingers to balance it on the spoon first. Just ask them not to touch the food when they check the oil temperature.

They took all necessary precautions and we have been able to eat there safely at least 3x over the last year.
