Good food but limited GF menu. Separate section of the kitchen for GF cooking
No problems eating here. I was so excited to be able to eat at Forest's restaurant. I had a lovely salad but they forgot my shrimp (which could be substituted for chicken). The gluten free menu was reasonable and they were really good reducing cross contamination and checking all ingredients of the dressing.
My waitress was patient and showed me about 7 options. The manager came out and handed me my plate first, and the rest of the food came out a few minutes after. We went a little later (about 10:30 pm) and there was still no concern about cross contamination. I recommend the accidental fish and shrimp, it's really good!
There is a Gluten-free menu (great for my son!). My mom is also allergic to gluten, dairy, garlic and a few other things. Our server wrote down what my mom couldn't have and went to check with the cook. Then the manager came and took her order. He offered to cook her shrimp or chicken with olive oil in the oven to be free of cross contamination.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND for celiac disease and gluten sensitivity. PLEASE take the chance to eat at this place if you have gluten-free needs. The dedicated gluten-free menu looks small, BUT the moment you mention to your server that you have a gluten allergy or gluten sensitivity they will bring a manager out and there are tons of items on the menus that can be made gluten free with just small tweaks (the manager will help you find these). This restaurant is EXTREMELY celiac friendly - manager explained how they relay to the chef your allergy, the chef oversees your meal personally, they change all utensils and gloves and prepare away from other food, and they even bring your meal out to you separately to avoid cross contamination. Our server knew nearly as much about it as the manager and they both impressed me with their understanding of the gluten issues. Would HIGHLY recommend for gluten accommodations as well as general service (friendliest service I've had at a restaurant, EVER) and the food (I got the accidental shrimp & fish) was delicious.
So Bubba Gump didn't do so good this time. Ordered the Shrimp and Veggie Skewers, which is on their gf menu and specifically had a conversation about needing gluten-free. The food was very good, but the after effect wasn't. Been sick since a little after eating there and expect a couple more days of it. Not sure where it went wrong, but I am paying the price for it now. If you try there hope you have better luck than me.
Very considerate and accomodating. Chef came to table to answer all my questions and he even went back to double check ingredients. Chef made me a seasoned, vegan vegetable medley. I can appreciate an attitude of staff that says, "let me go find out" and "I can just cut something up for you and make it!" Limited but gluten free menu.
Great menu options. Manager was nice enough to make smoothies for the kids himself to ensure no contamination. There were several options of smoothies on the menu that were GF.
Had a chance to check their gluten free out. Had the Mahi Mahi dish. Very sensitive .. no reaction. Food tasted good.
They are careful about the things they knew contain gluten, but oblivious about many of the garnishes that contain gluten. I warned them that I had a gluten allergy and orders off the gluten-free menu, and the manager hand delivered my salad, but it had croutons. They fixed it and apologized. Limited gluten free menu. Friendly staff. A little pricy, but what on Cannery Row isn't?
I appreciate the dedication the staff has to insure your meal is GF. Berry salad was delic, highly recommend !
They discontinued their gf menu and rhe avtual chef did not have a clue about ingredients.
They no longer have a gluten free menu. I was very disappointed when I went there to find out they discontinued it about a month ago due to new distributors and seasonings that contain gluten. The only things they have to offer is plain grilled chicken and a hamburger with no bun.
they don't have gluten free anymore!
They have new ownership and no longer have a gluten free menu and are not sure what is gluten free
