Wow! We haven’t been here in 10 years. I looked at their menus the other day, realizing they now did gluten free I was so excited to be able to take our son. We had a table of 3 and we all did gluten free so there was no cross contamination. They were so accommodating! Bonus they don’t charge extra for GF! we will def be back.

The staff was very accommodating for my Celiac disease and other allergies. They have GF breads, brownies, and cakes. One thing to note: This was the first time I had been to the Houston location and I did not realize that most of their 4-person tables share only one pot, and if you want 2 pots you need make that request in your reservation. It forced everyone in my party to order gluten- and shellfish-free food so I could eat safely. Luckily my friends were cool with it, but just keep it in mind if you're with less awesome company.

Dinner at the Melting Pot is always a special occasion. Our first attempt since hubby had to go GF. Excited to see their GF certification. Getting rid of Resbridge….bring it back, please! Still tons of options. I was brought non GF dippers, so we were careful on either using a spoon and dipping off my plate or waiting till he had finished to add my non GF items. May want to both go GF if that’s easier for you. Stayed healthy!!

We have not been in awhile, and first time without the kids. My wife is gluten intolerant. They have a GF service certification on the door. Not sure what that means, but I can say this is the most GF conscious menu we have ever sseen. Everything detailed for what is safe and not. My wife does not recall having gf bread dippers last time. We were very comfortable with server knowledge. The food was delicious, great experience. Actually the cost was pretty good for an upscale experience.

Note for GF. There are only a few items not GF and they can all be substituted or modified incl dippers. We just did 100%gf for the two of us, so that way there is no opty for accidetntal cross contamination at your table. I am not gf and found the whole meal excellent with gf options. That would be on you and your party, not the restaurant. Even moreso if you have a big group. The worse fear that some have is gf bread. But you are smothering it in cheese, rally no issue and tastes great as a dipper.

One shortfall is that we were doing entirely gf for the two of us, but server still brought out teriyaki sauce and was good to inform us that was only gluten sauce, but she should have kept that one in the kitchen. I did give the teriyaki a try since it was there, and did not care for it. Again, stick to the gf options, and your party will be just fine. If they are clamoring for gluten because they somehow feel slighted, there is plenty of wheat based beers they can enjoy, and the crew is all the better for it, not risking being glutened and friendships. : - )
