Fun experience meal! Waiter (Gavin) was super knowledgeable about GF. The entire menu (minus pot stickers, mushroom ravioli and teriyaki steak) was gluten free. All cheese fondue was (or could be made GF) Gluten free bread available on the cheese course. Every salad was GF. They brought us our own GF dessert board with brownies and chocolate chip shortbread, marshmallows, strawberries and bananas. The chocolate fondue was all GF (there was one that had cookie crumbles but stated that could be left off)

Waiter was fantastic and everything tasted great. He made suggestions on what to order and made sure we knew what meats would have to be subbed out. Dessert fondue came with gluten free pound cake and a gluten free brownie.

Very fun! Very knowledgeable and careful of cross contamination. In order for my son who has celiac to participate, we all had to eat GF. We did not mind but, the bread was terrible. Meat, sauces and dessert were delicious! Very expensive. Approximately $50 per person to eat then add drinks and tip...

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!

The food is delicious, the GF options are plenty, however I felt rushed through my meal and it was less of the "experience" that I enjoy at other Melting Pots

They were out of gf bread which was unfortunate. They made up for it by cooking my pot separately so that I didn't get crumbs in my pot. I have celiac so this was a must. They were understanding but didn't seem to be as educated as I had hoped.

I went to the Melting Pot with a group of friends. In order for this to be gluten free, you must order separate from everyone and ask everyone else not to get gluten containing items. It doesn't feel very good in a large crowd.

I ordered a side salad and emphasized that it had to be gluten free, they brought it out and presented it to me with croutons.

There was a vegan in the group, he got a salad, they brought his out with cheese.

Terrible service, terrible knowledge about gluten free and cross contamination.

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.
