While I explained four times how serious it was the food was gluten free and cooked separately as my daughter has celiac disease and they assured me they had spoken to the chef and everything was safe in reality they served us tortilla chips that had been fried in the same fryer as items with gluten. When I said something about it I got a “bummer sorry” response. I contacted the headquarters and no one responded. Will never be eating there again.

Well, I didn’t get sick, so that’s a plus. But I was extremely careful. I researched beforehand, and apparently Cheesecake Factory is kind of notorious for cross contamination with certain things, especially if you order gluten free pasta or things that normally have gluten but can be made gluten free upon request. I was recovering from getting sick a few days earlier, so I was extra careful and tried to order something that was naturally gluten free instead of “gluten free upon request.” Luckily I looked online at their nutrition information beforehand at https://www.thecheesecakefactory.com/assets/pdf/Nutritional_Guide.pdf. The physical menu at the restaurant only said “gluten free upon request” for any item, so I wouldn’t have know which were naturally gluten free. I made it clear to the server that I had celiac, and he said almost dismissively, “Oh, there’s gluten free marks on the menu.” So when I ordered I asked him to please let the chef know to be extra careful because I was very nervous and still recovering. I still can’t handle dairy yet as I heal. Most of the naturally gluten free ones had dairy. I ended up getting the pan seared chicken with corn replacing the mashed potatoes. It was fine tasting, but not filling. I was hungry when I left, and grumpy that I spent $20 for basically a chicken breast with veggies. The family enjoyed their food, but their bread crumbs got all over the table because you rip the bread with your hands. I was so nervous it would get in my food. They do have two gluten free cheesecakes. I had the Godiva one at Valentine’s Day when I wasn’t having issues with dairy, and it was delicious. And I didn’t react. But I don’t know that I really want to come back and spend so much money on rather disappointing food, and being paranoid about getting breadcrumbs all over.

My daughter ordered the roasted chicken with mashed potatoes and broccoli. The waiter understood my daughter was celiac and relayed that information to the kitchen. Out of an abundance of caution, the manager &/or chef recommended only eating the fries if the sensitivity isn’t severe because they couldn’t 100% guarantee no cross contamination of that menu item. We skipped the fries but everything else was safe and del ious - including dessert. I appreciated their coming back out to advise.

They have gluten free options or can modify some recipes to be gluten free. The server was not knowledgeable about celiac disease at all and told me twice that the food I ordered was gluten free...only to return a few minutes later to tell me that it wasn’t and I had to choose something else. She also did not ask of my being gf was a preference or an allergy, which I feel many restaurants ask these days. They do also note on the bottom of their menu that while they try not to cross-contaminate, their kitchens are not allergy free environments and they do use shared equipment (such as fryers).

All I got was Salmon and vegetables which was bland to begin with but then afterwards I had to deal with feeling awful. Crazy how you can mess up such a simple and flavorless meal but Cheesecake Factory managed to do it! Don’t go here if you have celiac. NOT safe.

I ordered takeout and got a naturally GF steak to be safe, and when I called ahead the staff assured me they understood gluten allergies and I would have no problem. I am celiac and had no reaction, but my steak was nearly raw so the food, though safe, wasn’t worth the price to me. I also got the flourless godiva cheesecake which I heard was safe and didn’t react to, but on their allergy info menu it does say it has gluten for some reason so sensitive celiacs may want to avoid.

Excellent lunch! I saw the poor ratings and decided to go anyway. Our lunch was beautifully plated and delicious. Our server was dedicated and our glasses were refilled promptly. The menu is clearly marked with gluten free options. There are also three cheesecake choices that are gluten free. I had the gf shepherds pie lunch portion and I couldn’t finish it all. It was very flavorful and I had no reaction. I was very pleased with my experience. My daughter and husband didn’t eat gluten free but their food was also wonderful from what they said. They had the cauliflower tacos and the chicken salad sandwich / butternut squash soup and green salad. We will be back!

I am not a sensitive celiac, but within 20 minutes of eating is was having issues. Due to Covid we did take out and stated that I was a celiac and made sure to order only items that were stated gluten free. Maybe if you eat in it would be different.

Although pasta was listed as GF on menu, when we called, they said they use the same pasta water as non GF pasta. Be aware of this!

However, once we sorted that out with the nice servers on the phone, I ordered something else that was listed as GF and it was fine!

Hello, this is my first review. I was diagnosed with Celiac yesterday but this is my first review. I was nervous to eat here because I am still getting used to ordering special and gluten free. Normally I would have gotten whatever I wanted but because this was my first official time ordering gluten free my options were limited. They have a huge menu, but limited gluten free options. There were some pastas, burgers, chicken dishes, salads, and omelette dishes. I settled for a turkey burger with a gluten free bun. The waitress was not surprised to hear a gluten free request and asked about accommodations. My burger came out and looked good. I’m pretty sure they brought me a beef patty instead of turkey, but i was more worried about my first GF bun! To my surprise it was really good. I have had bites of my mom’s GF buns before and know that there are some really bad tasting ones out there. With having regular buns lately I can honestly say that the taste was really good and close to what a good non-GF bun would taste like. The fries were good and also GF. Overall it was a really good meal. I can’t speak for cross contamination because I am symptomless and don’t react to gluten in anyway, so there is no fallout after eating gluten. I hope this review helps!

I am not only a Celiac person but also a employee of the Cheesecake Factory. I have noticed it has gone downhill when it comes to Being taken seriously when it says gluten-free on the ticket. I have tried to eat at work many times and I get sick every time whether it’s a salad, burger or pasta. I have said some thing to not only the kitchen managers but also my regular managers and nothing has changed. I will be updating if it does. Don’t want my fellow celiac’s getting sick. Don’t get me wrong it’s a great restaurant and has great food and I love working there just wish the kitchen took it seriously.

Originally I thought I was going to the Cheesecake Factory in Greenwood. They seem to have a higher celiac friendly percentage. Sadly this one does not. I was pleasantly surprised that the menu had so many options. I had shrimp with pasta. It was good. I did not get terribly sick from it, but I did have some tummy trouble later in the day (ate there for lunch). I feel like they would like to be celiac friendly, they may just not understand exactly HOW to do it. I do think they took extra precautions with my good.

I eat here occasionally and don’t get sick but I think my waitress last night was confused. I ordered the lowlicious cheesecake which says GF upon request, and she was like it’s already Gf, and I was like then why does it say upon request in the menu? So it came with a crust and I ate it and have no idea!

Open patio or take out during covid, Really great service, waitress was amazing because she asked if it was an allergy and told me about how they would take extra care to handling my food. The four cheese gf pasta was creamy but just straight cheese, so yummy with chicken. Low-liciouse (basic or with strawberry’s) and Godiva (chocolate) are the two GF cheese cakes they have. YUM!

I went here for my birthday with some coworkers. The food was delicious, but I ended up getting sick. I ordered a pasta listed as being gluten-free with modifications and the chocolate flourless cheesecake also listed as gluten-free with modifications. I had read about others getting sick from the cheesecake because of a chocolate powder so I specifically asked not to have this and any other modifications that needed to be made for gluten-free. They seemed confident it was safe. They also noted that my pasta was made gluten-free when they brought it out to me. I'm confident the noodles were gluten-free noodles but are not so confident in the preparation as there were bits of broccoli in my pasta as if they might've cooked the noodles in the vegetable water. This is fine as broccoli is gluten-free but makes me questions cross-contamination steps. I'm not sure which or if both items were what caused me to get sick. I would not recommend for a Celiac as I can't say with any confidence that I think they take the necessary steps for cross-contamination or that the staff is very knowledgeable of what steps need to be made and what gluten is. If you only have an intolerance it is probably fine.

Prior to going to the restaurant, we called to make sure there were policies in place to prevent cross contamination and that they used a separate pot and water to boil gluten free pasta. The manager assured us that they would be careful. When we ordered, we made sure to tell the server that our child had celiac and could not have gluten. When the food was brought, we asked again to make sure. As my daughter ate, she said she felt like the pasta had gluten, but we assured her it was fine. I wish we had trusted her instincts because she was severely sick the next day. I saw that there were positive reviews for this place and maybe this was a bad night, but we can no longer trust this place.

I called ahead to inquire about cross-contamination and was told that they'll prepare separately if the waiter is told when we arrive. The waiter was told that I have gluten allergy and needed food to be prepared separately, but my salad came with croutons. Waiter was apologetic for that and obtained a fresh one for me. When I ordered my main dish, which was marked GF, I was told they were out of that particular chicken, so I chose Sheppard's Pie, also marked GF. Taste was okay/average. My girlfriend ordered a glass of wine, which came out with lipstick on the glass that they mentioned was "water spots." They took the glass of wine off of our bill, but these blunders were annoying. I did not have any reaction to my food, so I assume that they prepared my food appropriately. Skipped their gluten-free cheesecake due to prior errors.

Be cautious if you choose to eat here. Ask questions and make sure you check with waiter.

Cheesecake factory marks GF food on the menu and offer gluten free pasta substitution for their dishes. The sever was very helpful with suggesting a GF dish. I went with the chicken garlic pasta dish with the gluten free pasta. However I was sick for days after. The pasta was for sure gluten free and the chicken was unbreaded. I suspect the garlic sauce possibly contained gluten or maybe there was cross contamination when the dish was being prepared.

I knew the risks going in, but I had a coupon for a free slice of cheesecake. I got the "gluten-free" Godiva flourless cheesecake. I don't know if they cut the slice with the same server as was used for cutting regular cheesecakes but I had a single bite (to test it out in case it was really contaminated) and I'm glad I stopped at one. It was delicious but I ended up getting ill not long later.

They have a separate fryer for gluten-free French fries! I checked and both the location on Topanga Blvd in the valley and the location in Thousand Oaks have dedicated fryers for French fries only. When I asked they did warn me that they can’t guarantee nothing else could ever accidentally get in the fryer because other stuff is nearby in the kitchen, but they said nothing breaded ever goes in that fryer. So I ate the fries and they were good and I didn’t get sick.

Also, if you order through doordash then some items (like the fries) have a button you can check that says “make it gluten-free”!

Last time I was there, the manager told me that they use the same pot of water to cook all pastas including the gluten free pasta. I wouldn’t recommend eating here.

They have a good amount of items that are gluten free. Their Turkey burger is honestly my favorite and now they have 2 different gf cheesecakes. We unfortunately usually have something wrong with our order EVERY time (for take out). So even though I haven't gotten sick here yet, I feel like I'm rolling the dice every time we order.

Called ahead and the staff understood and would accommodate by prepping gf pasta separately (normally all pasta boiled together). Ordered with a seemingly knowledgeable server but 10-15 min after our order was in the manager came out and told us they were out of gf pasta?! I have no idea how it took so long for them to bring this to our attention but it was too late to go somewhere else so we ended up getting a gf bun with butter (my 4 year old is incredibly picky and that was the only other thing they had available). Points for trying to make it right and knowing what celiac meant and not just subbing reg pasta, but the whole experience was incredibly annoying as they didn’t have the gf food they had listed on the menu and the server didn’t know they didn’t have it either.

My girlfriend has celiacs and ordered the gluten free pasta and got horrendously sick about an hour later. No indication that anything was wrong. If it was pure gluten it would have hit her in 20 min so it had to be cross contamination. Do not put yourself at risk!!!
