    Tasty, with a fair variety of meats and sides available. I'm one of those super sensitive celiacs, and I didn't have a reaction afterwards, altho I did make sure the bartender who entered the order went back and asked the chef to be very careful.

    This restaurant was the first I encountered with a GF menu, and it remains one of the best. Hell, I cried when they brought me a GF Expresso Brownie Sunday that actually tasted *good*! I'm told a family member is sensitive, so everyone is well trained. The GF menu is extensive AND delicious, and they have wonderful desserts! I come to visit often and (knock on wood) have yet to get sick from their food.

    My favorite restaurant! Ever! They have a dessert chef... and she is a true artist. Everything they make in house is gluten free, and it's the same quality of those wonderful gourmet restaurants that I can't afford to go to anymore! We can all get different dishes, and we can actually share tastes with each other! (I miss sharing the experience of wonderful food!) Every time I pass thru Asheville, we stop here for food...and a few desserts to go! We've even made the 4 hour drive for special occasions, just to eat here.

    Once again, my experience here has been excellent. I let the server know that I'm extremely sensitive to gluten, and the manager himself carefully brought my food out, explained the extra precautions they took to ensure there was no cross contamination, and in general left me feeling well catered to. Plus, the food was quite good!

    Love 'em! Consistent quality GF pizza that never makes me sick, and when a server recently waved a wheat pizza over mine, they re-made my GF pizza without a single complaint. New sauces are intesting and different, and they just got Crispin cider on tap - yay!

    The food is good, and they're trying...but they don't understand about cross contamination. Just found out the "gluten free" grilled chicken that kept making me sick was cooked on a surface shared with pitas. I haven't talked to them about it yet, so it may still be worth talking to them and trying again

    Good bison, and they've always been very accomodating with my GF restrictions.

    Good food, gluten free DESSERT, consistently safe, and the only time my dish was contaminated, they bent over backwards to make ammends. They've been expanding the GF menu, too, so there's more variety available

    I'm ridiculously sensitive to gluten, and this is one of my go-to restaurants. The food is decent, the servers and cooks are patient with all my special requests, and I have yet (knock on wood) to get a contaminated dish here.
