decent GF options but call ahead to make sure they have GF bread to dip- otherwise, you end up with whatever they can find. Celery and carrots dipped in cheese just isn’t the same thing!

I called ahead re:celiac. The staff member seemed a little informed about it. But he was confused about one apparently because he prepared it differently than they said they would on the website. I didn't bother correcting him because we were hungry and it was gluten free still. I kept double checking that every ingredient was gluten free- he said "yes I'm sure". After taking my first bite he came running to our table saying" stop! It's actually not gluten free! I just asked my manager." So he lied. The manager never came over to check on us and we didn't get a deal off the food, so it was a $70 meal down the drain (no pun intended). I don't know for other people but that's a lot of money for us and it was a special occasion. Would not recommend for Celiac.

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

I've dined here several times. The staff is very accommodating. The gluten free menu is extensive. If you have problems with cross-contamination, you should make your entire party order from the gluten free menu. Everyone cooks their food in the same pot at the table. But, since almost everything is prepared at the table, you can see the ingredients being used.

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.
