Really did a great job making sure everything was gluten free and giving options and substitutions
This restaurant is phenomenal! Our waiter was very knowledgeable, and pretty much anything on the regular menu can be made gluten free. They even brought out gluten free brownies and cake for chocolate fondue dessert! The only issue you may run into is the cross contamination in the fondue pot. However, the guests that came with you can order gluten free too with barley any difference to their meal. As long as they're okay with doing that, this place is considered 100% GF in my mind! :)
Wow, what a great experience we had. My 11 year old daughter has celiac and has always loved the Melting Pot, but this time they outdid themselves. It's been about a year since we took her there (because it's not cheap), and they made a few changes that she was absolutely thrilled with. Three of us went, we asked for a table with two burners and a gluten free menu, and they were happy to oblige. When the first course came out (cheese), my daughter lit up. They now have g-free bread for her to dip in the cheese. Way to go! She was beyond excited. Then, at dessert, she got another surprise with g-free brownies to dip in the chocolate fondue. They made what was already a great g-free option even better. I just wish it was a little cheaper.
Absolutely horrible experience. I CANNOT believe this restaurant is GIG trained and approved. Yes, they give you a gluten free menu. This means ABSOLUTELY nothing when other people in your party are dipping into the same fondue pots with non GF foods. We spent over $100 for a meal for 2. First course, 2 cheese fondue pots brought to the table, both GF. Within seconds bread was being dipped into them by others at the table. They had no gluten free bread, but it wouldn't have mattered anyway. There was wheat in both fondue pots within seconds. The meat round. They bring you meats to cook in shared pots on the table, which again are gluten free. They bring you a gluten free plate of meats. All wonderful, EXCEPT, others at the table are dipping teriyaki and other gluten covered items into these pots. I skipped the cheese round, but how am I supposed to eat my meat? I was glutened by the meat round. You can't separate out a cooking pot when there are 6 people at a table sticking skewers from one into the other with wheat products. I was able to separate the dessert fondue into bowls, after everyone knew I was ticked and they should let me get some before they stuck wheat things into these. But by the time dessert was there, I was already glutened. AT home in pain from a very expensive meal I wasn't able to eat much of, which still made me sick. NO WAY is this place celiac friendly. GIG needs to research the way this place works because there will be lawsuits if this continues.
Our server was extremely knowledgeable and provided me with excellent choices and service. She also brought and informed me of Corn chips that were processed in a facility with other things and allowed me to make the determination. Also made the experience compatible with my non-gluten worrying family.
From the conversation while making the reservation till the last morsel of dessert, I felt completely at ease about how my food was be prepared. I had the four course meal. There was Gf bread for the cheese dip made with Gf beer. Salad prepared just for me by our waiter. Sauces for the meats and veggies were explained and I could have all but one! Dessert was fruit, Gf cake, and the most amazing brownie I have ever tasted. All ready to dip into chocolate! Great place👍
I have celiacs. Everything tasted delicious. They were out of GF bread but had the GF brownies. The reason I am rating this a one is because I was sick within 20 minutes of leaving the place. I did not share a pot with gluten items. So I'm not sure if there was cross contamination with the food I got or all the items I ordered weren't truly GF.
Last night me and my mom n her bf and my hubby went to this place and one of the employees was a gay kept putting his nasty butt in my husband face and making horrible advances towards him.so I notified the manager who also was gay what happened he insisted i had to be lying and over charged my meal he treated us like we had aids or something also the waitress left us unattended for serveral mins at a time..awful experience Never going back!!!PPL DONT TAKE UR HUSBANDS HERE HE WILL GET A GAY EXPERIENCE THAT HES NOT WANTING !!!WOULD LOVE TO REPORT THIS TO THERE CORPORATE
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!
Their GF knowledge is amazing, and the cheese fondue and desserts are amazing!
My husband and I had the most fun romantic dinner, and it was all GF and safe. They have the largest GF menu I have ever seen. GF bread for the melted cheese app, salads, Lots of GF dinner options and for dessert, pound cake, brownies and fruit with Chocolate. It was absolutely amazing and Emily made our experience more pleasant. She is the best. I recommend 100%.
An excellent place to eat as a celiac for a special occasion. They have and extensive menu available for those who must go gluten free AND they do not "penalize" you for it by charging extra to get gluten free bread - very nice of them as we all know that it is more expensive than regular bread. You simply swap out some of the meets that you cannot eat for ones you can (I got filet mignon instead of the teriyaki meat). Yes, it is on the more expensive meal, but it comes with everything including your dessert and it really is a restaurant to go to for celebrating something.
Overall- my husband and I had a great dinner. They took care with the food- also remember that if you are dining with a Celiac, you also need to choose GF options because you share the same dipping pot. The only disappointment was they didn't have GF bread, even though I called ahead and they said that GF bread was provided. For a costly dinner- that would have been a nice touch.
This place is awesome, the food is so good and everyone is very knowledgeable about gluten free. I recommend this place.
We had a great night at the Melting Pot in Reston, Virginia. The server was sweet, but and very willing to check EVERYTHING to "make sure" we were safe. As a Celiac, with an intolerant daughter, we enjoyed every bite. Be careful of the chocolate course, and check the labels on the toppings. No symptoms at all today! Yay! Ask for Bryanna!Enjoy
My wife has a gluten allergy and this was clearly explained to the waiter, but lo and behold, we received dessert cakes with gluten in them. When we asked the waiter if the desserts were in fact gluten free, he realized he made a mistake and brought us the gluten free desserts (gee thanks!) after she already had a couple of them. The worst part about it was that the waiter didn't seem to care - at all. DON'T GO THERE!!!
5 stars for training and knowledge. 1 star for cleanliness.
The Melting Pot has an extensive selection of Gluten Free items on their menu. Servers are well informed and provide a seperate fondue pot to prevent cross contamination. Their GF bread and GF brownies are made on site and are delicious. We went there to celebrate birthdays and were extremely pleased and highly recommend other Celiacs to dine there.
Wonderful dinner here! Server was great and knowledgeable...they had gluten free bread for the cheese fondue, all salads were gluten free without croutons, so many entree choices were gluten free and the best part according to my kids was the gf pound cake and gf brownies to dip in chocolate for dessert!!
This was our first restaurant after discovering a family GF intolerance, they were perfect! I had to remind my daughter to not expect such amazing service re: gluten free options/knowledge/acceptance when dining out. It was her birthday dinner and was chosen prior to changing our diet, we did not feel like we missed out on anything!!! Love them!

Worked with Gluten Intolerance Group on their gluten-free menu. Special training is required for staff.
