    The waiter was friendly, but not at all knowledgeable about which items were gluten free and stated that all cheese and meat are cut on the same surface as bread. I told him that I have severe allergic asthma to the point of having gone into anaphylaxis and he said he would talk to the chef. They selected a few items for me that they thought would be safe and I had no problems breathing at all. I do really like this place, but they definitely do no have a good protocol in place for dealing with customers who have to eat gluten free.

    I just went in for drinks. The waiter was really awkward. I found a hair in my drink then when I sent it back they brought me the same drink back again. Good margarita when I finally got a clean one. Cool atmosphere. I'd give it another try.

    I was lucky that the waiter had celiac disease himself. So he walked me through the menu and picked the best dishes I could have. The meal was wonderful and I had no problems at all.

    though the server was wonderful at trying to find me options, I got the impression the chef was not as sensitive. as a result, despite my best efforts, I was glutened. it wasn't too severe, but I doubt I'd go back.

    The server was well versed in celiac disease and cross contamination and there were more than a couple options available.
