    I have never had a good experience ordering Gluten Free here. I have vowed to never go back because it's so awful trying to eat GF here.

    Some of the staff is pretty good with gluten free questions and the menu they have...does have a little variety. It's a pretty good place to go and hoping they start offering things like soups on their menus. Pasta I had was pretty good and over all I haven't been sick once eating here.

    Having CD I specifically asked the server if they had a GF menu. Bc he didn't know he went to ask & returned with a very disappointing response ...the head chef says no, we do not! I was with friends & we were celebrating someone's BD, so this was very awkward to say the least. So I ordered a salad wo croutons. When I inquired abt GF salad dressing, again... They had no knowledge if their SD was GF. Plain salad, no dressing for me! It wasn't until we were almost ready to leave that a manager came to see if our dining experience was enjoyable. When I explained my frustration, he apologized & explained that I had been misinformed. He even offered to store my personal SD in the kitchen next time I visited so I would always have a nice salad. This experience was very awkward & frustrating. I will not be back.

    Knowledgable waitress. 5-6 options to choose from. Cook came out when meal was served to ease some of my concerns abt meat being cross contaminated. I had Rotini Primavera with grilled chicken. Priced average compared to other establishments.

    I wish I could give this zero stars!!! They offer GF menu, BUT unless you tell them very LOUD and CLEAR, not just mention celiac. 4-5 times, they cross contaminate you! Told server could not do gluten, spent 3 weeks coming off affects of being gluten poisoned after eating here. Spoke with a manager who said have to make it abundantly clear can not have gluten, otherwise they, ready for this, "think it's just a fad and don't treat people who order gf as more than that." Manager admitted they boil gf pasta in water they boil other pasta in, unless you state, apparently to everyone in the restaurant, since I told my server when I sat down, twice when I ordered, when she brought salad with croutons, etc...... That I had celiac and could not have gluten. Save your health, and money, and avoid this place!!

    Their gluten free menu is combined with their calorie menu so it is hard to know what is gluten free or not. Also their was only 2-3 things on the gluten free menu. When I got my pasta it was hard and somewhat cold. Not what I expected.

    This chain is not gluten friendly at all. Went here on request from my friend and ordered one of the few gf options on the menu and had a gluten induced headache by the time we walked out the door. Awful.

    Terrible experience here. I asked for gluten free pasta, and the waitress brought out REGULAR pasta. I then informed her again of my allergy and he said there was a mixup in the kitchen. I waited another 20 or so minutes until a manager (who was not knowledgable to say the least) and the waitress brought out the food. It was the worst gluten free (corn) pasta I've ever had. It was a cross between overcooked mush and an undercooked plastic texture . Overall, they acted like my allergy was an inconvenience and it wasn't even good. You'd be better off making your own version at home.

    This location was amazing!! I'm allergic to gluten, soy, dairy and tomatoes, so I'm use to getting pretty boring meals while eating out. The chef personally came to my table and talked me through all of my options. He ended up making me an original and delicious dish. I would definitely recommend this location to anyone with any form of food allergy.

    I was really disappointed in the fact that I had ordered the salmon, roasted potatoes and broccoli. Thought that would be safe. It wasn't until the last minute that I found out that they coated their potatoes in flour. It is just rather disappointing. They do not promise that anything is gluten free as it may be tainted. Be cautious.

    Gluten free pasta was nothing special, but didn't get sick. Waitress had no idea what Celiac was. She served me salad with croutons, soup and bread sticks. Also, gluten free pasta is made on the same line as regular pasta..

    my fiance and I are both gf. the waiter instructed it's if we were severe (celiac) to order off the gf menu if just sensitive we could make substitutions. I'm celiac so I ordered off the suggested gf menu only to have the cooks, server and gm looking like outdoors when they unknowingly brought out the wrong dish. I took one bite and shared with fiance to make matters worse.his digestive system was messed up for a week and I was need ridden for three days. they comped our bill but it didn't matter it was too late. I will not be back because the staff and e off all the kitchen isn't trained on their own menu.

    Terrible. I saw their commercials that mentioned they had gluten free pasta so we tried it yesterday. They all seemed confused. We were not able to look at a gluten free menu before being seated and after being seated for 10-15 minutes they said that they could not find any of their gluten free menus. This made me very nervous. I was unable to eat there because they don't know how to make pasta sauce without adding milk to it. Huge waste of time. I probably would have had cross contamination issues anyway. They all looked at me like I was an alien.

    Just had my first meal there. The gluten free items choices are very limited. Only pasta sauces available are red sauces. Caesar salad was basically a mayo dressing with shaved parmesan on top. Meh. In the last 24 hours since eating their I've been very bloated. I don't know if it is related.

    I have eaten here twice. The first time I was on my own, because I was unaware there was a GF menu. That meal was fine. The second time I ordered off the GF menu, but I do not think that the waitress did. They even brought bread to my table and I was dining alone! Arguing was too embarrassing. I just left. Be sure that they know what they are doing.
