I was so impressed with their food and service! I’m the only celiac in a family of five, and this was the best full dining experience I’ve had in a long while.

They made sure I had my own pot, and that my food was all GF, including the bread, the best brownie I’ve ever eaten, the meats, veggies, and sauces. Hunter and Julia, our servers were super helpful and knowledgeable. What they didn’t know, they made sure to double check.

Warning though: it is not cheap! ($200 for three people, including the tip.)

Over all fun experience and the chocolate fondue was great. However, they were not knowledgeable about cross-contamination and accidentally brought out the wrong gluten-containing sauce and food for my meal even thought I told them I had the allergy so I ended up sick.

I had a great experience here. When I made my reservation I asked about gf and the guy taking the reservation was very knowledgable. When we got there our waitress was great and the menu was clearly marked for gf with a lot of options.

Went there for a birthday celebration. Wonderful cheese fondue, but the best is the entrees. Peppered steak is amazing when you cook it in the broth. Next time I think I will get all beef and seafood. They are very careful about bring separate fondue cookers for those who are celiac.

I had a wonderful evening while on a business trip. The experience was amazing and the food was not only great, but fun. My server was very knowledgeable about gluten intolerance and helped me through the menu and ordering. All 4 courses were amazing and I will eat here again.

Amazing experience! Our server was extremely knowledgeable about the specific items I could have and not have. Very accommodating, I got my own fondue pot and tray of foods that were all gluten friendly. The brownie with the chocolate fondue was amazing!

We had an amazing Mother’s Day dinner at Melting Pot. They now have gluten free bread for the cheese course. They had gf cookies and brownies to dip in the chocolate fondue. Our waitress was well versed in cross contamination. They were willing to adjust for other food intolerances and likes. There was a sticker on the front door announcing that it was a validated gluten free safe spot. We felt safe and normal eating there.

First time eating here. It was a wonderful experience. The waiter was so good. Everything was so good. The only thing was when we had dessert I only ate the fruit dipped in the chocolate. Took the gluten free brownies and snickerdoodle’s home with me. I ate them the next day and I did get sick after I had ate them. Would still recommend them but not the cookies and brownies. And would go back again but just avoiding the brownies and snickerdoodle’s.
