We went to the Melting Pot for our anniversary last night, and it was absolutely WONDERFUL! The waiter was completely knowledgeable, the cheese fondue was prepared with cornstarch, and they even brought gluten-free bread for dipping! I've NEVER had gluten free bread in a restaurant before; I usually just expect to do without. (I don't know whether they do that at all locations; it wasn't listed on the menu, just a happy surprise!) Also gluten-free pound cake as well as fruit with the chocolate fondue for desert. I just felt so happy and normal. :) I would really recommend them, especially for a special occasion. We were given a secluded table for 2, and an anniversary card personally signed by the staff. They also offer balloons and/or flowers for special occasions. Five stars.

Melting Pot in the Denver metro area also has gluten-free options. Haven't tried them since going gluten-free (11 months), but I do eat at Le Peep(s). These have gluten-free menus, baked goods, and dedicated grill/toaster/waffle irons. A waiter told me their regular waffle maker broke so all customers got the gluten-free waffles until it was replaced; he said they liked them better because they were crispier. Amazing how many more options there are for eating out gluten-free, even over the last 6 months. Yummm. :)

Usually you put a little cornstarch, wheat or rice flour in a cheese fondue to keep it smooth and the right consistancy.

Depends which cheese fondue you choose. Some have flour thickeners which they will substitute w/cornstarch. For the beer ones, they will substitute Redbridge.

Went to the Melting Pot last night. They were very knowledgeable and helpful. We were put at a table with two pots, so others in our group could have regular. Highly recommend!
