This place is 100% GF and possibly the best GF restaurant I've been in world wide. Amazing menu selection including fried foods (onion rings, chicken tenders, fish and chips, coconut shrimp), pizza, entrees (try the kahlua pork bowl!), and desserts. Make sure to call early on Monday and reserve yourself a cinnamon roll before they sell out!!
While I was ordering my appetizer I made it very clear that I wanted the gf sweet potato fries to the server. When they came out, I started eating them trusting my server listened to me. Instead I come to fine mozzarella sticks mixed into them. Trying to explain this to the server that I'm now going to get sick over this, she told me that she didn't know they couldn't touch/about cross contamination.
This is not my first experience with contamination here. Ordering a salad that you can have the blue cheese and crouton removed then having it served not once but twice with the contaminates on followed by them scraping it off like it's not a big deal had me speaking to the manger quite often.
Why offer a specialized menu that you pride yourself in having without training your staff on what certain things contain??? I was very fortunate that my symptoms won't come straight away. I cannot image if someone had such a severe allergy that they would need an epi-pen than having your server use the excuse "I didn't know".
Will not be visiting again anytime soon.
Had lunch today. Wait staff seemed really frantic. I ordered a chix sandwich and explained celiac and was servered a chix sandwich on a bun. She realized it after she served it and said she would bring another and not charge me. The second one was good and the truffle fries (which they are known for) were fresh and awesome. The rest of the food was okay but the place seeemed a little off to me. Won't go back
Great Italian in Hawaii! seafood pasta was so good, gluten-free penne was aldente, wine sauce was excellent and seafood perfectly prepared. My husband had the veggie pasta arabiata, he loved it. Our waiter Clint was very accommodating and double checked with the chef on everything with a smile, he made the experince even better. Don't miss this place at the Hilton Hawaian Village! Would give 5 stars if they had gluten-free bread.
