Be advised that their gluten free lunch menu is very limited (3 entrees only, and only broccoli as a side choice). We had to get a manager who finally conceded to get me some grilled shrimp (not one of the three entrees). I like Bonefish for dinner, but am not sure I'd go back for lunch since the choices are so limited.
Good GF menu but portions are very small and not worth the price. . This recently changed
Good GF menu with lots of choices. We went around 3pm and the restaurant was pretty empty. Server was accommodating and even double checked if it was okay before he brought out bread for my husband who is not gf. I had the shrimp salad minus the tortilla strips (server was aware they contained gluten). There were a few gluten free options for dessert including a seasonal Pumpkin Creme Brule.
I got the Lilly's chicken and garlic mashed potatoes, had a crouton in my mashed potatoes which made me ill (had a bite before I saw the crouton) and staff tried to insist it was garlic, despite being hard, large, and smelling like bread (then tasting like a crouton to my husband as well). No apologies or compensation and the table next to us had received tortilla strips in their supposedly gluten free salad! They clearly are not well aware or trained here despite a dedicated menu. I do love their vanilla creme brulee and would likely go back just for that for dessert some time, as hopefully it would be safe by itself!
We stayed in Williamsburg for several days and we ate here every night. Why? Because Bonefish is reliably good at keeping this celiac safe and I was not willing to eat somewhere new to "experiment" and get sick while on vacation. That would not be fun. One night, I had the filet with whipped potatoes and it was very good, as always. The next night, I had the chilean sea bass. Excellent with the mango salsa and jasmine rice. The third time, I tried the house salad and the lily's chicken (I believe that is the name of the dish) and we had to wait over half an hour for it to arrive. We were seated at the bar. It was just so-so, truth be told. The portions are getting smaller at the Bonefish Grills, I have noticed and the drinks are getting even smaller. Bummer. For the price we pay for these entrees, I'd like to see them stop the "paring down" practices. Not a typical Bonefish Grill (from my experience)--the wait time for the food was long (and it was not even busy), although the servers were all very nice!
Get the salmon lilys style, broiled with no seasoning.
While visiting the Albany area, we dined at this Bonefish with several family members. I have Celiac Disease and I appreciate it when a server (and a restaurant) takes my dietary needs seriously. Bonefish never fails me. The Chilean sea bass was reliably good, the seasonal side of zucchini was tasty but the jasmine rice was hard as a rock. Not sure what happened there, but no one else at the table had this problem.Every else enjoyed their meals thoroughly.I have to mention however, that the portions are getting smaller at Bonefish(in every locale from Florida to NY) and for the price of the entrees, I find that disappointing. Also, the new rocks glasses some places are using--are not appealing to me--and the small pour of Bombay sapphire for that crazy price with the giant ice cubes taking up most of the glass? Not cool. Whatever happened to pouring a drink to fill a glass? All that aside, if you are looking for a safe dining experience, Bonefish is a good choice.
While traveling north from Florida, we stopped at this Bonefish for dinner. The minute, Gary our waiter came to the table, I knew we were in good hands.

My daughter who has celiac disease ordered a GF hamburger. It came with a bun on it! When we asked for a new one to be made, it came back a little too quickly, but our server assured us a new one had been made. Our daughter reacted by the time we came home. They just aren't knowledgable about what gluten actually is.
FANTASTIC! The server (Megan, a delight!!!) was attentive and knowledgeable, and if she didn't know the answer, she was perfectly willing to find out. She suggested substitutions since they no longer have the edamame appetizer (the edamame hummus with sliced cucumbers and carrots is incredbly good!) A wonderful dinner. We'll be back!
We've dined here successfully twice in the past month. They knew what they were talking about and modified dishes for us as needed.
The only local place with good seafood AND gluten free menu? It's all good...delicious, safe, did I mention delicious, awesome waitstaff, great atmosphere, just can't say enough nice things about bonefish. (By the way when I say good seafood, I'm from Baltimore, so you know I mean it!!!)
So many options! shrimp and scallops with lemon butter sauce and creme brûlée are to die for.
Very impressed with the selection on their dedicated GF menu. Server used an iPad to take our order and there's a button to flag as GF which the kitchen immediately sees. She asked if my need was allergy based and said there are extra steps the kitchen will take if so. I wasn't able to order the tuna sashimi appetizer as they soak the tuna in soy sauce to help the sesame seeds stick (and provide flavor) but she said if I call ahead they will prep a piece just for me using GF soy sauce. Loved the chicken dish that I ordered and felt great afterward. I'll definitely be back!
we went Sunday. the hostess was not sure if the gf menu had any brunch options which is odd because one side of the menu was the brunch menu. they also only had one copy of the gf menu. not sure what they do if more than one party is gf. anyway, I ordered the house salad and shrimp and scallops with mango salsa. it was fantastic. we ordered the macadamia nut brownie and creme brulee for desserts. it was all good. the server was great and aware of gf options. the hostess needs more training.
Had an excellent salad with salmon but could have had several other choices from their separate GF menu. Our waiter JB was knowledgable abt what parts of my husband's entree I could eat and what I could not since we like to share our food and he does not have to be GF. Music was too loud for my husband but I was fine with it. Would go back. Great food and service!
They have a GF menu with many options. The server was familiar with GF but confused about a dairy allergy so everything was plain & unseasoned with all sauces on the side. It was good food, very fresh shrimp and I didn't have any issues with it.
The big problem with Bonefish is that it's expensive. Additionally, I ordered the Caesar Salad with salmon from the gluten free menu and got terribly sick. No croutons, of course, so it might have been the dressing or the rub on the salmon. I recommend you steer clear and try another place.
Food was phenomenal, waitstaff very knowledgeable and helpful. My waiter's wife is a celiac, so he totally didn't mind my questions about preparation! The creme brulee dessert was to die for. Can't say enough good things about this place and this particular location!
Went for dinner ordered off of gluten free menu.. Explained to server (as I always do) how important it was that there was no cross contamination with Gluten!! He said he got it .. Then the entree arrived and there was a gluten filled side on the plate.. Thank goodness someone noticed as I was about to take a bite!! They offered to remake but as any celiac knows the damage was already done!! I kindly declined and left!!!
