Great menu, everything is labeled GF and indicates things that can be prepared GF as well. Our server said that the manager has celiac disease and takes care to make sure the kitchen avoids cross contamination and offers gluten free alternatives. A separate tray was brought out to me for the cheese portion containing gluten free bread as well as for the chocolate portion which contained GF brownies.

Be aware: They were able to accommodate my need to be Gluten free, however, this means that my wife also had to eat gluten free. I don’t like to force GF on her, especially when it’s date night and eating out.

We had a truly wonderful experience at the Melting Pot with our family. There were 7 of us in the party, two celiac who had to eat gluten free, the food was delicious and the two wait staff assigned to our table in a private room were over the top terrific, both so attentive to our dietary needs and explained everything about the food, the way to choose it, cook it, and not cross contaminate. They had gluten free bread options for the first course to dip the cheese into. We had our two kids who loved the experience of dipping and cooking and both devoured everything served. The cocktails and mocktails were delicious. No issues afterwards at all for our two family members who have celiac. The only thing we wished happened was we didn’t get so full and could have saved room for the chocolate dipping so we’ll definitely go back for dessert!

We eat here often. They take amazing care of us. They have a note on my account so every time I make a reservation, they know I’m gluten free. They even have gf bread dippers for the cheese as well as gf dessert dippers for chocolate. Many options for sensitive belly’s. Highly recommend!! Make sure to plan ahead & make a reservation as they get very busy. Also it is a long dinner so give yourself a couple hours to get through all your courses. Bring your appetite

Melting Pot was safe place for my family member with celiac disease. He’s able to have his own oil, own food, and they’re even able to tell him which sauces contain dairy (intolerance) as well. Only word of caution is from time to time, servers will lower a potato into the water to check the temperature of the oil, and more often than not when scooping up the potato they use their bare fingers to balance it on the spoon first. Just ask them not to touch the food when they check the oil temperature.

They took all necessary precautions and we have been able to eat there safely at least 3x over the last year.
