    No separate GF menu but the server had a list of items that could be prepared safely that included how dishes would need to be altered (which I appreciate). Had the spicy tuna appetizer, which was awesome! Had the special market fish, prepared 2 ways. The fish was overcooked in one, the other was good. A bit pricey. But the meal was definitely safe, no cross-contamination. Feels like a gift when I can critique the quality of the food, and not just safety.

    I called ahead and spoke to the manager before making reservations. Ann was knowledgable and helpful, and the the wait staff was as well. There is no gluten free menu, but they are prepared and can let you know what meals are or can be made gluten free. They told us not to order anything fried as there's no separate fryer. Our meals were great!

    Great food and very knowledgeable staff. I had the fresh catch of the day with shrimp and scallops and purple potatoes plus their signature mai tai and the Lime in the Coconut cocktail. They even brought me some hummus and veggies to snack on while my SO had the free bread. Really awesome place!

    As other reviewers noted, the menu does not have marked GF items. However, when I spoke to our server, he was very knowledgeable about which items could be made GF. I was impressed that he even considered hidden gluten sources such as sauces or flour dusting. The fish fillets, Scallops, burgers, chicken/fish tacos, and several of the salads could all be made gluten-free. We ended having the Angie's salad (substituted feta for blue cheese), which was outstanding. We also had the the only GF dessert (gelatos), which was heavenly. Very good service, too. We will definitely come back here this trip!

    No GF menu, but our waitress was very knowledgable (although not very friendly...she seemed a bit annoyed explaining the GF options). With that being said, there were a lot of options, and I recommend it. I had the fish tacos, and they were delicious with zero reactions.

    I agree with the previous posts about the extremely helpful and knowledgable staff Not only was the waiter extremely helpful to me regarding my multiple food allergies, they guided my diabetic mother- in-law regarding sugar free choices. The mochiko catch of the day was delicious, and they voluntarily substituted a green salad for sweet potatoes since I also needed dairy free. I highly recommend checking this place out.

    No separate gluten free menu, but many of the items are already gluten free or can be made gluten free. Knowledgeable waitstaff and chef that are happy to help. They automatically served a side of their homemade hummus in place of the bread they normally serve without me even asking - nice touch! I had the Mochiko (Japanese rice flour) crusted Mahi-Mahi that was fresh caught today, served with a lime ginger & mild wasabi sauce, Molokai purple sweet potato and green beans. Almost too beautiful to eat, but very yummy! Highly recommended!

    The server was very knowledgeable and the chef is able to specially prepare dishes to accommodate. The grilled fish tacos were spectacular and the blackened ono with Hawaiian mashed sweet potatoes were also just as spectacular.
