Safe food gluten wise, but you have to cook your own meat, which I find weird because I paid $80. I've never cooked duck and I was nervous the whole time because I don't know the proper meat temperature for it or how red it's supposed to be. Maybe I'm not skilled enough to eat here, but I'm worried I might have undercooked my own food. The experience for the cheese fondue was great, but I'd never get the meat again.

San Antonio Melting Pot was SUPER about me being GF. I was the only one at a table of 7 and they made sure everything from my cheese course, to my main course, all the way to my dessert, was completely taken care of. Every time I tried to ask/remind our waitress about GF, she was always one step ahead of me. I was super impressed!!

We asked for the table to be entirely gluten free. First thing she brought regular bread and we asked and she traded it out then they were supposed to substitute out the teriyaki beef, and they didn’t. Wasn’t until the celiac in the group tasted it that it was discovered. Manager was pretty useless, gave a coupon off the next visit. Then waitress pretty much ignored the entire table for the rest of the night. We have been there in the past and had a good experience, but we will not be back

This is one of the most unique restaurants I've been to. Though you can order everything a la carte, generally you have a four course meal. The appetizer is fruit, bread, vegetables, and apples dipped into cheese fondue (several types you can choose from). Then your choice of salad. Then the entree is several meat options plus vegetables cooked in a pot of several choices of spices. Then for dessert, fruits, cookies, and marshmallows dipped in chocolate, where again you can choose the type of chocolate.

The majority of the menu is available gluten free. This includes gluten free bread and cookies/brownies. There's practically no chance of cross contamination since each table has its own cooking area where you see it being made right in front of you - assuming nobody in your party gets any of the few options with gluten and dips into the fondue, absolutely no need to worry.

The staff is super knowledgeable and what has gluten and it's clearly marked on the menu. Just be prepared in advance - this isn't a casual meal. A four course meal for two, without alcohol, is about a hundred bucks before tips. And takes a couple of hours to eat.
