    Three celiacs at my table. My daughter ordered the gluten free tuna. Came served with a wheat gnocchi in it. A single one! My daughter removed it and told the server. Server said she was sure it was fine seeing as how it was in the dish. My daughter said the gnocchi was in the regular menu dish not the gluten free. She returns 10 minutes later only to tell us what we already know. It's gluten. No replacement of the dish offered. We figured out this morning that they have to be using the same water for gluten free pasta that they are using for regular pasta. A little too late because they brought me a small dish of the pasta veggies and sauce and I am currently very sick and have definitely been glutened. I order a scallop dish off the regular menu minus the rice cake she says has bread crumbs. She says they will give me extra spinich. My 32$ plate comes out with 4 scallops and maybe 10 green beans. I asked where my spinich was and salad. She says it had something I couldn't eat so the can't serve it. Didn't come out to ask if I would like to change my order. Ended up the scallops were so salty they were inedible. Didn't eat my meal. Their gluten free menu looks great but the fries are cross contaminated and are all over the gf menu but are substituted with veggies. Why put them on? Tell me how you make duck confit poutine with out French fries. My son ordered a steak medium (it was beyond rare) it was suppose to come with fries. It came with about 10 green beans. We left paying for 2 of the 5 meals. Avoid this restaurant at all costs. They poisoned me on my birthday. Special.

    Why isn't there a 0 on the rating scale? Ordered a gluten free meal, was served flour coated fries and a wheat bun (my frisnd ordered the same meal without the allergy and our meals were identical.) I spoke with multiple staff members who "checked with the kitchen" and a manager (the worst of the crew), every single employee was defensive and dismissive. The manager was down right insulting and patronizing about the food allergy in general. He blamed ME and yelled at us to the point where we walked out of the restaurant. Avoid. Avoid. Avoid.

    Highly recommend. Gluten free bun is great. Tuna on pasta was full of perfectly cooked veggies and was gluten and dairy free. Omelettes are another delicious option. Extensive gluten free menu. Gluten free beer . No dedicated fryer so fries and taco shell could have cross contamination from oil but you can skip them or sub fries for mashed potatoes.

    Not bad, a great place to bring people. Not a large menu but good food. Not sure you can count on them not to cross contaminate when they are busy but there aren't many places you can.

    Has a gluten-free menu, but not everything on it is safe for celiacs (shared fryer), so order very carefully! My server seemed quite knowlegable.

    Expensive but worth it, separate GF menu and delicious cocktails. GF bread that came with dinner was tasty, waitress and manager seemed knowledgeable.

    Not impressed. The fried food is not gluten free - it says it right in the menu. Our meal arrived cold and was way over priced. Would not return.
