    Very gluten-knowledgeable and friendly staff. I ate there before I found out I had Celiac, then after, and barely noticed the difference due to the many gluten-free options. Highly recommended!

    All I can say is WOW!! This was our first time eating here and decided to go to celebrate our anniversary. We made reservations for 7pm and were seated as soon as we arrived. We tried to take a selfie outside the restaurant on our “date night” and the man opening doors came out and offered to take our picture. Our waitress/cook was Raven. She was absolutely AMAZING! Literally the best service we had the whole week! My husband has celiac so we ate together. Raven was very knowledgeable about GF options. We got the 4 course meal. We started with the Fiesta Cheese Fondue with Redbridge beer base. WOW!! I could have made this my whole meal! Next came our house salads. Again, the freshest salad I had eaten all week! Our main course was filet, sirloin, and dry rub pork. So tender and delicious! Last, but certainly not least, we got the dark chocolate fondue. It came with strawberries, marshmallow,s gf cake bites and gf brownie bites. THE. BEST. MEAL. EVER! Not only was the meal wonderful, our waitress was amazing and answered all of our questions and concerns. Highly recommend and will be returning!

    Horrible. The waiter had no clue about cross contamination. The whole place was really outdated and reeked of fryer grease. I ended up excusing myself early and rushed home to shower from the stench. Worst dining experience of my life.

    I was impressed with the extensive GF items on this menu. Clear indications on the main menu. Tons to choose from even though there is lots of sharing. Only issue issue is that all parties sharing pot will need to get the GF items if your avoiding cross contamination.

    Our waitress was so knowledgeable about the gluten free offerings and helped me navigate the menu. I felt totally secure that what I was eating was safe, and the menu is well marked. My cousin and I shared the meal, so we just made sure everything she ordered was also gluten free. The chocolate fondue and gluten free dessert dippers were incredible!!!!

    This was our first time at the melting pot. They did not explain what it was or what was going to happen. They just said to pick your cheese, pick a salad and pick meats. The waiter did not explain the meat would be brought to us raw and we would cook it in vegetable broth. Boiled meat? Who eats boiled meat? For $30 sum per person for just the meat course. It should have been cooked by the chef for that price. We left.

    Amazing food. The cheese with their gluten free bread was so good. I got shrimp, the duck,tuna, and filet mignon. They had so many Gluten free options and the desert was seriously AMAZING best brownie and snickerdoodle cookie pieces I've ever had. I wanted to ask for extras to take home. It was so good. I'm trying to find a good reason to go back because it is expensive but so worth it.

    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/

    The menu specifically stated what was gluten free or what could be excluded to make it gluten free. They are not limited at all in what sides they could give us for our fondue. They had GF bread, cookies, brownies, etc. There was plenty of variety and the waitress was extremely knowledgeable and sensitive about our dietary needs. Very impressed!

    Their gluten free menu is extensive and I really didn't feel like I was missing out at all. They have gluten free beer to substitute for regular beer for their cheese course and yummy gluten free salads. I would highly recommend for celiacs to come here but only if everyone in your party is willing to do everything gluten free. If not there would be cross-contamination all over the place. I was there with two non-gluten free people and they also didn't feel like they were missing out because the gluten free bread and dessert dippers were really good! Just make sure to specify with your server that you want all gluten free things to dip. Great food and great service!

    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.

    Great experience here. Our server was knowledgeable and and very helpful. Had the Wisconsin cheddar cheese fondue and they used Redbridge beer. Came with veggies and fruit and Udi’s bread (maybe a roll? It was brown ). Our server let us know that one of the dipping sauces (teriyaki) is not GF so she did not bring that it as an option with the meat.

    I thought the staff was knowledgeable until recently I found out there is Worcester sauce in the cocktail sauce. I was getting glutened every visit despite reminding them I am celiac. Unfortunately, after finding this out the manager was not very helpful saying it was “only a little Worcester”. Super disappointing. I did appreciate the server who finally told me.

    I am so surprised to read previous reviews from several years ago. I am glad I didn't look at the reviews before going. We had a fantastic experience last night. First thing noticed is that they have a GIG GF certification on their door, entering the restaurant. Everything is clearly marked GF on the menu. They had GF bread for dipping into the cheese fondue (which was prepared at the table so was unquestionably gf). The meat fondue was great. And who wouldn't like chocolate fondue, especially when accompanied with a GF platter of fruit and GF baked goods. Our server and the two managers who checked us often were wonderful.

    Amazing dinner! We came for great plates and loved it. Since the last time I ate at a Melting Pot I was diagnosed with Celiac and now have to eat gluten free, and they offer an amazing selection. Everything (including drinks) is clearly marked GF or not on the menu and the waiter was super helpful and knowledgeable. We had delicious 4 cheese fondue w/veggies and gluten free bread, a variety of meats in Mojo broth, and a dark chocolate w/raspberry liquor chocolate fondue that came with gluten free pound cake and brownies for me. The gf brownies taste better than regular brownies! The great plates meal came with a bottle of wine, we got the moscato which was delicious. Great service and a great atmosphere. We’ll be back for a special occasion in the future!

    The service and staff were awful. I told my server that I had celiac and a severe gluten allergy twice before ordering, and he reassured me that he’d make note of it. We had 5 different severs in the course of one hour and twice they brought out their regular wheat bread.. when I told them I had a gluten allergy they looked at me like they had no idea and then brought out the gluten free plate. Had I not brought it up, I would’ve gotten sick. I understand that people make mistakes, but to make the mistake twice in one meal when it’s a serious allergy is a little ridiculous. The melting pot prides themselves on their ability to provide for gluten allergies, but this location is nothing like the other locations we’ve been to. We will not be returning.

    The food here is amazing. They can be gluten friendly, and they substituted the chicken teriaki for more beef in our entree. It cost more, but only bc we asked for the filet. You cook everything yourself, so my husband just took out some cheese for his bread to keep it gf. The waitress was new and not too aware of gf issues and gave us a cheese mix with beer in it. Thankfully, we were able to stop her before she poured it in! She also offered to substitute cookies in the chocolate with graham crackers! Um... no . But other than properly training their staff, the meal went well. With dessert, they have some options that are gluten-friendly like fruit and coconut marshmallows for the chocolate. My only complaint is that they do not have gluten free bread or brownies. For the price, it would be a nice addition.

    Had I died, and gone to gluten free heaven?...almost! But, luckily, I'm still here to write this review! So, to start off, they can make gluten free fondue with red bridge beer! wow! I did not try this kind but many of the others were also gluten free. Most of the dippers (including gluten free bread!!) were gf. Salad available gf. Almost any entree choice and cooking method gluten free. Now the dessert...brought out gf brownie and muffin along with fruit etc. AMAZING! Our server, AJ was great as well! (as I was dining with non-gluten free companions, I spooned my fondues out into my own separate dish to save from cross contamination) Amazing experience for someone who is used to always feeling left out when going out to eat!
