3955 Freedom Circle, Santa Clara, CA 95054
There is no GF menu but the waiter was familiar with gluten free and told me they had a triple check system in the kitchen to make sure the food is safe. Birk's is a steak or chop house type of restaurant. My food was very good. I had filet mignon with Bernaise (extra), garlic mashed potatoes, asparagus, and a salad.
211 Mirada Road, Half Moon Bay, CA 94019
I called a few places in Half Moon Bay to find a place to stay that would also feed me breakfast. This was the only place that answered with a resounding "No problem!" They serve appetizers and wine in the afternoon and had both Mary's and Crunchmaster crackers for me. Breakfast was GF French toast and sausage. It was delicious. The Inn is clean and cozy and is right on the shore so you get glorious sunsets and the roar of the waves. One note, this is not a restaurant.

The GF menu is the regular menu with GF items marked as GF. You can get some salads, some pasta dishes, or the risotto option. A salmon dish was labeled GF but it was served with gnocchi so I would be wary of that. I have never found GF gnocchi except from GF specialty markets. I think this is a chain so don't expect exquisite food. I had the shrimp pasta and it was good. Address is 31255 Union Landing Blvd Union City 94587 phone 510 431-5142. It's new so difficult to find online.

I would classify this place as adequate dining at fine dining prices. Yes, there is a GF menu but it is incredibly limited. For example, all entrees (5 or 6) come with plain white rice. You cannot get a baked potato. I think that maybe their GF menu is the same as their dairy free menu. Absolutely zero creativity. Another component to this place is volume - both the loudness and the obviousness of how quickly they want to turn over your table to someone else. I gave it one star for location (on the beach) one for having a GF menu, and one because I'm not sick after eating there. I don't mind paying for great dining experiences but this wasn't one of them
3300 Coach Lane, Cameron Park, CA 95682
The only things you can eat are the curries, but the curries are very good.
9402 Main Street, Plymouth, CA 95669
Large gluten free menu. When I told the waiter I had celiac disease, he asked if I wanted a basket of their GF bread. The bread was a hearty brown bread and I don't think anyone would have been able to tell it was GF. The appetizers were much larger than I expected. Food is seasonal so menu changes. I had a sweet potato appetizer, a poached pear appetizer, and pork loin for an entree. Luckily I split the appetizers. I was too full for dessert so I can't tell you how it was but they had a GF banana donut thing and he made a point of telling me it was made in a dedicated GF apparatus. All of my food was delicious. Great wine selection and there is also a special vegan menu. Check hours because it's an incredibly small town and they aren't open every day.
181 Ranch Drive, Milpitas, CA 95035
All the GF items are marked GF and there are a lot of choices. But the appetizers (dips) all come with pita bread. They will give you lettuce leaves if you ask. The food is very good - middle eastern. I've had servers who were really spot on with celiac and one who seemed to have no idea what I was talking about.
39 S Livermore Ave #125, Livermore, CA 94550
Yes, there was a gluten free menu.Yes, the staff was very nice and seemed knowledgable. However, I found the food to be bland and uninspired. I wonder if they even have a bottle of wheat free soy sauce on the premises. The waitress said the staff will work with you if there is something you want that is not on the GF menu, so next time I'll try that (and bring my own tamari).
4370 Town Center Boulevard, El Dorado Hills, CA 95762
I have removed my former good rating because the chef just recommended that I not eat there. Can't guarantee the safety of anything
7746 N Hwy 1, Little River, CA 95456
Convenience store (small) off of the highway. Gluten free cookies and crackers for sale. Also, the salads at the deli are marked GF if they are. Quick stop for picnic stuff.
163 Boatyard Dr, Fort Bragg, CA 95437
The owner is very nice and chatty and told me NOT to order any sandwiches if I had celiac disease. She said the clam chowder was safe. It was good chowder.
44850 Comptche Ukiah Road, Mendocino, CA 95460
GF bread - over 90% of items are GF naturally. Very healthy, very pricy. Some things are weird. Some things are wonderful. Some are weird and wonderful. Open for breakfast and dinner only.
450 Capistrano Rd, Half Moon Bay, CA 94019
I was surprised to find so many things to eat after dropping in on a whim just to check and see if they could feed me. The menu has a GF symbol next to the gluten free items. They have GF bread and will make the pepitos (little sandwiches) on GF bread. Soup! Sandwiches! Dessert! If you aren't familiar with Spanish cuisine, you may find it strange. Also, extra $ for the GF rolls. I had a bowl of gazpacho and a pepito and had to bring my dessert home because I was too full. Counter service. Outdoor patio.
234B Main Street, Pleasanton, CA 94566
I had a beet salad and GF penne with bolognese. It was delicious and the serving of pasta was so large I got two meals out of it.
2585 Iron Point Rd, Folsom, CA 95630
No gluten free menu but the staff is well trained. Tell them what you need and your server will tell you the options. Each dish is made when ordered. No beef or pork dishes because they are marinated But there are a LOT of veggie, chicken and fish options. They have gluten free tamari and rice noodles available. My food was fabulous - I had Kung Pao chicken and garlic green beans.
1435 North McDowell Boulevard, Petaluma, CA 94954
AKA Lydia's Organics - Gluten free vegan facility, I believe they use wheat grass in some smoothies but I've heard wheat grass is gluten free. Smoothies are good, soups are good, some desserts are good. Honestly though a lot of the food is weird. I will say this, you feel GREAT after eating there. However, I'm a person who loves food and I have to give this place an asterisk* *Good for vegan/raw but not my favorite spot for texture and flavor. Will I go back? Yes.
32216 Dyer Street, Union City, CA 94587
Large GF menu with rice penne as a sub for regular pasta. The server assured me they even use separate utensils. Giving it three stars because I ordered the signature dish, pasta pomodoro, and to me it tasted like Campbell's cream of tomato soup on pasta. The minestrone was good, not great. Also, even after having the GF discussions he went into the regular "Did we want to split the bruschetta as an appetizer" spiel. Uh, no. I will return and try something else next time. My girlfriend likes the salmon salad but 'sustainably raised' sounded like farmed salmon to me and I choose not to eat Frankenfish. Note: This is a chain so there are other locations and the web site does not reflect the new GF options.
155 Walnut Ave, Santa Cruz, CA 95060
I've eaten here several times and never had a reaction. It's a deli sandwich on Udi's. You can get excited about that or not. I noticed one review didn't like the mayo, I always request "light on the goo" and getting over-mayoed has never been a problem for me. (Erik's uses a mustard/mayo combo they call goo) I have never tried the gf soups.
505 Seabright Avenue, Santa Cruz, CA 95062
My burger was good, the GF bun was indistinguishable from how I remember regular buns. Fries ARE NOT safe. I suggested they get some GF beer and the counter person was very receptive to it. I only gave it three stars because there are no fries or fry substitutes, like chips.
10439 California 1, Jenner, CA 95450
A place to grab a coffee and a house made gf muffin. They don't open until 8:00 am which seems late for my morning cup o' joe. They told me to get there early because they frequently sell out of the gf ones. However, I arrived at opening and the gf muffins were still in the oven. Had day old, two flavors, both good. I don't think there is anything for celiacs on the lunch menu but I didn't ask.
California 1, Fort Bragg, CA 95437
Grocery store. Owner is celiac so there are TONS of gf options. There is also a location in Fort Bragg and apparently it's larger and even has Gf bakery items. Next time I'm in town I will review the other store.
10483 Lansing Street, Mendocino, CA 95460
They don't fry anything but fries. Safe prep for GF burgers. It was not clear to me if they ran out of GF buns or if they only serve them on lettuce. If you want a bun, Harvest Market at Mendoza's is a block away. Bring your own!
44951 Ukiah Street, Mendocino, CA 95460
You can get GF pizza or a GF falafel platter and they are also an ice cream shop.
45104 Main Street, Mendocino, CA 95460
A soup and sandwich shop where you can get GF sandwiches. Soups change so ask if they are safe. Counter person volunteered that they use separate space/utensils to prevent cross contamination.
10451 Lansing Street, Mendocino, CA 95460
There were only FOUR items marked gluten free here. 1) nachos 2) guacamole 3) salad 4) a curry bowl if you substituted ginger chili broth for the curry. None of the wait staff seemed knowledgable. I'm suggesting it in case anyone may be craving nachos or a salad.
7750 HWY 1, Little River, CA 95456
If I could give this place six stars, I would. They have lovely gluten free rolls that reminded me of popovers. They will put GF croutons (house made ) in your salad. They only use GF tamari if they use soy sauce. I didn't order a salad because I knew I could have bread and dessert. Local fish, local veggies. My entree was cooked perfectly (halibut) and the accompanying ratatouille was to die for. Very small venue behind a gas/grocery on highway 1 so don't plan a big party there. But GO! You won't be disappointed.
740 McClelland Drive, Windsor, CA 95492
The salads are labeled GF. No entrees were but waitstaff was knowledgeable about which ones could be made GF. The GF pizza crust was unbelievable! In fact, I waited to make sure I was feeling fine the next day before writing this review. I asked three different employees if they were sure it was GF. No preformed shells - artisan style and it was like bread! Airy with bubbles. Only complaint is that the interesting pizzas have an Alfredo sauce which is NOT gluten free.
324 West Lake Street, McCall, ID 83638
GF sandwiches available. It's also a market that sells lots of GF products. I skipped the gf toast at brunch because it's toasted with the regular bread. Sometimes there are gf baked goods from the local bakery but check to see how fresh they are before you decide to purchase. They used to have GF Fridays when the specials are GF. I'm not sure if they still do this.
414 Railroad Avenue, McCall, ID 83638
Knowledgable staff, GF soy sauce (Bragg's) and GF beer. They can make almost everything GF (unless it has something fried or marinated). Only use sustainable fish and it's a green business if that's important to you. Will sub real crab for the fake stuff for $3. Very fresh, delicious sushi. I make a point of eating here whenever I'm in town.
6518 Washington St, Yountville, CA 94599
Big GF menu plus a Zagat rating BUT fries are on the GF menu and the fryer isn't a dedicated one. I canceled my order when i found out. Kudos to staff for double checking for me. I had soup, Niçoise salad and their GF chocolate almond torte. Soup was fabulous but the rest was just so-so. The wait staff is over the top as far as attentiveness goes. If I'm honest, it was almost too much service. I think I couldn't finish a sentence without interrupting to thank someone for topping off my water or tea, or using the correct grind of pepper to suit my tastes, or removing a dirty utensil etc. Maybe it was the other reviews or the Zagat stickers but I expected a better meal than I experienced. That's why I couldn't give it 5 stars.
67 Oakway Center, Eugene, OR 97401
No gluten free menu but when I asked about GF the person at the counter immediately washed his hands and changed gloves. You cannot eat the chips here. You are pretty much limited to soft tacos. The carnitas was tasty and so was my margarita but very few options available. I just can't embrace a Mexican place where I can't eat chips and salsa.
876 Laurel St, San Carlos, CA 94070
The gluten free menu is paper and on the counter. Lots of items to choose from! The woman who helped me was super helpful too. Best part? I got to have a chili relleno, something I've really missed.
963 Laurel St, San Carlos, CA 94070
I think you should remove this place from your app. Tried to eat there last week and the two employees I spoke with had no idea what I was talking about and told me they had nothing. Figuring the B team might have been on duty I wrote a friendly email to them asking for clarification. A week has gone by with no response whatsoever.
480 San Ramon Valley Blvd, Danville, CA 94526
Miglet's is my happy place. Their desserts are fantastic and they have a lot of hard to find GF groceries available.
4889 Hopyard Rd, Pleasanton, CA 94588
A good place to get a sandwich WITH fries! My only complaint is that the food is too heavy for my tastes. But...fries! Sweet potato or regular.
315 Main Street, Half Moon Bay, CA 94019
No GF menu per se but the staff works with you. They have two types of GF pasta. The menu is seasonal and the veggies are from local farms. I've eaten there twice and both meals (soup, entrée, dessert) were outstanding. Last time I had one of their specials, it was pasta with a lemon sauce and fresh Dungeness crab and it was quite possibly the best pasta dish I have ever had.
493 Lake Ave, Santa Cruz, CA 95062
Great GF menu (including almost every dessert). One owner is a celiac so they totally get what's needed safety wise, Great fresh fish - I think you can even get a burger on a GF bun. I wish the soups were GF but there are so many other food options I feel guilty complaining.
1770 1st St, Livermore, CA 94550
Love this place - the owner is knowledgable and if your waitperson isn't, ask for the boss. The food is good! I've tried several things and I have liked them all. You can pretty much eat or adapt every item except for those using phyllo. They bring you cucumbers instead of pita with hummus. It's not the speediest place but it is fresh and delicious and SUPER safe.
8493 Auburn Blvd, Citrus Heights, CA 95621
First time I've had a basket of bread since my diagnosis ten years ago. The GF menu was TWO whole pages! My husband and I split the rolotinis and the veggie lasagna and they were outstanding. The sauce was so fresh! I believe they use organic and non-GMO foods too. We took raviolis home and they were good too. I am searching for an excuse to get back to the area just so I can eat there again. Only complaint is that it was a bit noisy. Totally worth it though.
34765 Ardenwood Boulevard, Fremont, CA 94536
Good pizza but pizza is your only gf food option
