The server was honest and said they do not have a separate prep area and they use all same cooking tools for GF menu. My celiac daughter insisted on taking the risk and she did fine. I don't plan to go back due to the shared kitchen prep.
A pleasant restaurant located in the Renaissance Savery Hotel but clueless about gluten free. We were there on the weekend and had the breakfast buffet - omelets, fruit, yogurt - can be gotten anywhere.
Gave specific instructions (wash hands, clean area, etc) and still got sick. Staff seemed knowledgeable but seems to deal with people who are mostly gluten sensitive (not celiac). Very busy and large kitchen and staff, so there's a lot of opportunity for things to go wrong (cross-contamination). Don't take the risk if you have Celiac.
Fantastic selection of gluten free foods - pastas, cookies, deli, etc. Full service grocery store. Shelf gluten free labels are not always present, they have many more GF options than are marked with orange gluten free stickers.

Amazing burgers — in fact, one of the best I've ever had. Very knowledgeable staff. They keep all gluten items off the grill, so the meat is safe from cross-contamination. Sadly, the fryer is shared, so no-go on the fries. That was the only downside. I'd go again in a heartbeat.
Be very careful here. Had the chicken wrap and watched the preparation where gloves were not changed, knife was wiped with a paper towel. I informed the chef of his errors and he gladly made me a new wrap, but shouldn't have had to ask. Retrain your staff please!
Forget it. Went for brunch and only options were salads. The omelette they said was gf turned out to contain sausage with wheat and only after I questioned the waitress numerous times. This is why I ask in the first place. Asked if I could instead have a plain omelette with tomato and feta...answer was no. Ridiculous. Don't go.
Once I tried the portobello pizza, it was disgusting. The mushrooms were extremely wet, it was not prepared well. Next time tried the GFree crust instead, just ok, not great. Mellow mushroom or CPK is better GFree crust.
I eat lunch at this location monthly. I have learned to only go early or late. They can't handle the lunch rush and too much CC occurs during this time. They even accidentally gave me a soup with barley one time, luckily I inspected it carefully before eating. Food is good though and when I really want a sandwich or soup I come here.
