The chocolate was delicious and the gluten free dessert plate! Omg!!! So good! Gluten free pound cake and brownies and they tasted so good. Also, I loved our server, Max. He was great

My wife has a gluten allergy and this was clearly explained to the waiter, but lo and behold, we received dessert cakes with gluten in them. When we asked the waiter if the desserts were in fact gluten free, he realized he made a mistake and brought us the gluten free desserts (gee thanks!) after she already had a couple of them. The worst part about it was that the waiter didn't seem to care - at all. DON'T GO THERE!!!

Food was great. Fun experience. They were completely prepared for gluten free. Make sure you call ahead for a table with 2 burners if anyone in your party is not gluten free. Expensive

One of our favorites. Make sure the cheese has corn starch and not flour. We bring our own bread. They get theirs from a local bakery and it is not very good.

Expensive, but good. They have a lot of gluten free and a list of drinks that are gluten free.

Felt like a vacation from the gluten free world. They took care of everything and I didn't have to explain anything to them.

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. : - )
