It's always comforting to see that a restaurant has worked with GIG... The Melting Pot is the perfect place for celiacs as they will make you feel completely taken care of and watched out for. The fondue is delicious too, of course!

We went to the Melting Pot for our anniversary. The GIG training certificate is hanging in the lobby. The server asked us a few questions after we requested the gf menu. The service was great, we ordered the cheese fondue and she brought extra apples and veggies for dipping. She also explained all the ingredients in the sauces for our entrees and everything tasted delicious. Even though it is pricey, I would go back again for a special occasion!

They did a nice job. Even made sure I had gluten free bread. They made sure I had my own pot so no cross contaminantion would occur.

When making reservations, we mentioned the gluten free request for our entire party. Knowing this was a GF Safe Spot, I felt pretty comfortable eating here. After being seated, I mentioned to our waitress that we were all eating gluten free to keep it as safe as possible. The appetizer was OK (a bit too much wine-tasting) and included GF bread. When the entree arrived, I was surprised that the waitress included a sauce with gluten--she brought a dish that included 5 different sauces and said she left out the spoon in the one gluten sauce so we would be aware. I was very disappointed in this, especially since we emphasized being completely GF at our table. I did not try any sauces as cross contact would be too easy. You definitely pay for the experience at this restaurant so, luckily, I won't be hurrying back anytime soon. Next time, I will ask to bring a new sauce tray that is completely GF.

Everything was so tasty and decadent and there was gluten free for every course. Only eh thing was I asked everytime they brought out a new course if it was gluten free and the waitress was like nope sorry and took it right back and fixed it. So whoever was plating or cooking or checking things in the back was not on the ball which is a little... not great for celiac but I did not get sick and it was AHHHMAZING

UPDATE: Came back for a second time and again my food all tested gf with my Nima sensor, and I had no reaction. I always request a separate pot from the people I’m with and they are super accommodating with that. Waiter was very knowledgeable and asked if I was celiac. Super nice people and great food!

The food was great, and they even had vegan cheese and chocolate (I can’t eat dairy). I could hardly tell that the cheese was vegan. The waiter was very knowledgeable and let me know that some of the gluten free dippers (bread and desserts) had dairy in them. I tested everything with my Nima sensor and it all came up gluten free. I’m very sensitive and I didn’t get sick.
