    This restaurant has a lot of GF options but they need to be more clear what is GF and not GF. We were told the chips on the table are GF - but it would be nice to see that listed on the menu. Our waitress told us that fries were GF but then later came back to tell us she was mistaken. If they have a dedicated fryer - I don't understand why they could make fries in that GF fryer. Some food was tasty. Anyone who got steak in their tacos/enchiladas didn't like the steak because it was lumpy and chewy. For dessert, they offered 2 GF options. We ordered one of them but then noticed that this option was not on the GF menu (like the fries weren't). The waitress insisted that the dessert was GF - she said she has worked there for 4 years and should know (but she didn't know the fries weren't). We were nice about it and chose to have the person with Celiac to just eat the ice cream (which came in a separate dish) but had the non celiac person eat the rest. We didn't complain. We have just been burnt by unknowledgable servers in the past at various restaurants and the consequences are too great. What I didn't like is that the waitress kept coming over to try and convince us that she was right - to the point of embarrassment in front of our friends. She even showed us that it listed as GF on the bill.

    This Outback did a really great job of handling GF. The waitress was very knowledgable. I would only encourage Outback to develop a nut free GF dessert.

    This restaurant has awesome GF options. I would have given them a 5 - but the server served the wrong food to the person with Celiac. They realized it just as the food was about to enter the mouth... I would suggest asking for the GF food to be delivered separately.

    California Pizza Kitchen was trained by GIG and rolled out their GF menu October 2013. They have 4 pizzas - all excellent and salads. The GF crust tastes more delicious to me than their regular crust. My celiac family members have dined here several times successfully. CPK understood what needed to be done and the food was delicious!!! Well done!

    They say all their hot dogs and sausages are GF. But when you watch them cook these "GF" sausages - they hold gluten buns over them and use the same tongs to fill the gluten buns with sausages and then thy put these tongs back in the grill. When I asked the cooks I they were really GF - they had no idea what I was talking about. Had 12 GF dogs in the suite without buns - only cost $96 in the suite for 12 hot dogs (no buns) with a little cup of onions on the side - no joke!

    I'm giving this a 4 because they did a great job gluten free wise. Paul, the manager, was fantastic - he understood allergies and ensured we were taken care of. For the restaurant overall I'd give the restaurant a 3. We were at Fogo de Chao in Washington DC 6 months ago and their restaurant was much better. I felt like the restaurant in Chicago skimped a bit - the meat didn't come to our table as frequently and we ordered Caipirinha and we were asked if we wanted the premium / smoother version and we said no - just regular. There was not much alcohol in the ones we received. One of us lived in Brazil and knows how they should taste. They were perfect in Washington. For a $200 meal for 4, it should be perfect,

    They have an good GF pizza crust. They can use this to make GF feta bread. They have GF pasta, burgers and beer. Also a GF chocolate dessert. I always ask the server to ensure pasta receives to bread/bread crumbs and to please the food separately. They are always happy to comply.

    We were assured that they could handle GF. We are there and they served mashed potatoes. I asked if they were GF and the server confirmed yes. They had a white sauce on them and I asked about the sauce. He said - Gluten Free! After taking a bite full, he came flying out of the kitchen to say that the sauce was not GF! So, I would say they need to better educate their staff on GF. It was expensive but tasty. No other mishaps.

    Not recommended for people with Celiac. This restaurant had a GF menu on their website and we were excited to go because they advertised having GF sushi. The GF menu at the restaurant was slightly different than the one online. We ordered 4 things off their GF menu. The first was a fillet with French Fries. The nice waitress immediately informed us that the filet is marinated in soy sauce and therefore not GF. After ordering, they came back to tell us that one of the sushi items from the GF menu wasn't really GF either. Then they told us that the fries from the GF menu were not really GF - but they couldn't tell us why. I'm guessing fryer cross contamination?? They assured us the rest would be GF - but at this point we had a very uneasy feeling. We asked to pay for our drinks and cancel our meals. The manager came over to apologize and tell us that they hadn't updated their GF menu and there were many problems since their main menu changed. He gave us our drinks for free. We didn't eat there. We won't be going back. We were at least thankful that they were honest about things not being GF.

    The GF Pizzas are assembled right next to the non GF dough stretching station. While they were on 2 separate tables, we were concerned about the flour in the air - and we did see flour in the air. Also the GF ingredients were stacked up in bins. The guy making the GF pizza spread sauce on from a seemingly dedicated container - however, passed the pizza to the next guy who was making non GF pizza to have cheese put on. They used a cookie sheet for the GF pizza which was good. The concerns listed above made us afraid to try the GF pizza.

    This restaurant was really great. Only fries cooked in 100% peanut oil (nothing else fried in the oil). Hebrew National Franks - GF. They have 2 grills - 1 dedicated to buns and 1 dedicated to meat. Had bunless hot dogs and fries. Very good. Manager was very careful and changed his gloves for us.
