I messaged ahead to let them know my husband is gluten free but also has a rice allergy. They have gluten free bread options for dipping with the cheese fondue, but they messaged back and let me know they did contain rice flour, so we avoided those. GF items are clearly marked on the menu or an alternative is offered, like a cheese fondue that had lauger in it can be replaced with a gluten free broth base instead. Usually a couple shares a pot on one cooktop. They reserved a double cooktop table for us and we each had our own pot. They put items that we could both have on one tray and separated the ones my hubby couldn’t have on a different tray. The manager also said their staff has some kind of gluten training - I cannot recall what he called it. We had a lovely, fun, and stress-free meal! Jordan, our server, was so thoughtful and kind. He made sure we knew what everything was - all the sauces, meats, etc. It was such a treat!

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.

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.
