    Only 5 GF options: crab cakes, ahi tuna, red fish, chicken, & rib eye. No sauce & only creme brûlée for dessert. Food was good but few options. Service was good but not great. Lots of better GF options in NOLA

    I live in the Quarter full time and despite all the amazing food here, in the Marigny and the CBD, I still have difficulty finding reliably safe food (am a celiac who can't tolerate most of the 8 major allergens too boot). I must have passed this place a hundred times before calling and speaking to Ben, the incredibly knowledgeable manager, who explained exactly what I couldn't have (since that list was actually shorter than the things I *could* have). I mentioned that I was a celiac and he immediately knew to avoid most other allergens, such as soy, without me asking. This means so much to me as I spent years avoiding eating out over fears of cross-contamination or just as bad, feeling like a complete jerk by having to interrogate the servers and chefs who had no idea what I was talking about and usually responded with that look. You know the one. Where they think you're buying into some fad diet perpetuated by Mrs. Paltrow. In short: If you're visiting the Quarter and are celiac or gluten-free, this place is a must. It's a Ralph B restaurant (a highly-regarded local chef) with lower prices than his other menus (still expect to pay roughly $30-40 for an entree but it will be big enough for three people). My personal favorite is the grilled redfish with lump crabmeat (the sauce does have a bit of real butter but not much), served over some of the most delicious, creative and locally harvested veggies I've ever had and wrap it up with some blueberry sorbet. To wheat-eaters: fear not, you won't taste a difference, just amazing food all around. It's a true French Quarter gem; it is upscale but you are more than welcome to duck in for lunch while wearing sandals and shorts or come by for happy hour and BBQ grilled shrimp in a dress you picked up at Hemline (a great boutique with a store on Chartres and a staff that has basically created my style over the past 7+ years when I walked in with none; from 216lbs to 120, they always found the perfect dress or outfit to make me look amazing for any occasion)

    Shrimp and Greek salad, no problems. Limited GF menu, but I'm happy.

    Not a lot of choices, but what they have to offer is very good. It appears they can only accommodate lunch and dinner. They are not prepared to accommodate breakfast.

    It was great to be able to eat crab cakes. I didn't get sick. Service was great.

    Good place for seafood, but very limited GF options. The staff was very knowledgable and had safe practices, but the lack of flavor made my meal only average. I think they are so worried about seasonings that contain gluten, that they don't use anything at all. Safe place to eat, but not the best meal for the price.

    Oceana has a gluten free menu and cheerful service, which is a plus. However, they're GF choices are limited and bland beyond belief. The grilled redfish only went down with half a bottle of hot sauce on top. If you're looking for good Cajun GF choices, I definitely suggest you check out Crazy Lobster instead.

    Limited gluten free menu (only about 5 or 6 items) but the crab cakes are great and make a good snack or breakfast.
