    The service was good and the food was even better. An updated menu and gf educated staff are a plus. I am told this restaurant has closed.

    Good atmosphere, good options for food. My husband got the Department Chicken and really liked it; my ribeye sandwich was so-so.

    This doesn't only pertain to the gluten free aspect of the restaurant. This rating is for the whole experience. I do not just wholesale cast off a place by one visit. I gave this place a couple chances, but it appears the poor quality, over-priced, poorly serviced experience is the only thing you can count in here. Both times I went we had reservations But waited an hour to be seated anyways. On one occasion the waiter actually told us the food was "pretty bad" there. And they were right. The fish was the most bland under seasoned meal I'd ha in a very long time. The chicken was way overdone and bland and the vegetables tasted straight microwaved. The service was VERY slow but luckily I had good company and we kept ourselves occupied.
