    Large selection of GF groceries and menu options. Question employees as anywhere and triple check that order is gluten-free. I was mistakenly served a wheat wrap.

    Small gluten-free menu, but at least they have one. Waitstaff not knowledgeable so be very specific with requests (I asked for no butter due to dairy intolerance, and her reply was "Isn't that the same as gluten-free?" ACK!). Kitchen willing to work with food sensitivities.

    Pricey, but if you want one of the best gf beers and you don't mind a splurge, try the three varieties of Green's from Belgium!

    The gluten-free crust is just ok. For whatever reason, they put much less sauce on the gf pizza than regular. I ordered Daiya cheese due to dairy intolerance, and it was incredibly scant. This chain does seem to have a good handle on cross-contamination, and there are quite a few gf toppings to choose from.

    Safe if you have Celiac Disease, particularly the curries, which are made at a separate prep station from fried, battered dishes. No gluten in fish sauce, and manager is knowledgeable, welcoming, and open to questions.

    The food was very tasty, and the gluten-free menu is extensive. The puffed rice appetizer is amazing! The downside was that a gluten-free dish was served with gluten! Luckily my boyfriend, who is not gluten-free but had ordered gluten-free so that we could share, noticed that there were fried, battered scallions on his fish before I took a bite! These scallions were the difference between the fish dish on the regular and gluten-free menus.

    The gluten-free menu is somewhat deceptive, particularly if you have Celiac Disease or a strong intolerance to gluten. DO NOT eat the fries, they are fried with battered foods. I was charged an extra $1 to have vegetables steamed without butter (dairy intolerance). Lobster was great, but none of my food was seasoned- at all! Gluten-free should not mean seasoning or spice-free.
