    Large GF menu, which will be given to you upon request. It seems like most of the food they serve is GF other than obvious items like bread and fried foods (cross contamination). Food was good and would have received 5 stars if my ice tea refill hadn't taken so long.

    I've never eaten here, but I am planning to do so and will add a review once I have tried the food. I believe this location is within the Red Rock Casino.

    GF items are marked with a star on the menus. One thing I liked is that the GF items were not pizza or pasta, which are two items that I don't trust most restaurants to be able to do in a way that avoids cross contamination. Food was pretty good.

    The best GF pizza that I have had since giving up gluten. Reminds me of Round Table Pizza. Pizza came on slightly burned parchment paper, which is a good sign since it shows that GF pizza is protected during cooking process.

    Not the best Chipotle. Kitchen setup is poor, which results in staff not being able to hear the order. Avoid lettuce and cheese given that staff touches both after touching wheat.

    I eat here every few months. I understand that CPK now has better GF procedures. A bit pricey for what you get, but tasty.

    Pei Wei is a fusion restaurant that is owned by PF Changs. Gluten free menu shown online is more extensive than what the staff will show you at the restaurant. My advice is to look at the online menu to see what items can be made GF. The staff's knowledge of GF is not as good as PF Changs.

    Lots of great gluten free and dairy free options. Gluten free facility!

    Ask for a burger "protein style" to get a lettuce wrap. Also indicate a wheat allergy and the staff will take extra precautions. Fryer is only uses for French fries. Milk shakes are GF.

    Large GF menu. You order at counter and then food is brought to your table. I ordered GF fish tacos and we shared GF hummus with GF bread. GF items are brought to your table with a marker showing that they are GF. We all enjoyed our food. Restaurant was kid friendly. There was a band playing music that we enjoyed. We plan to come again.

    Excellent! Prices weren't low, but I felt like the quality was worth the price. As others have said, the GF menu was extensive. One of the best GF menus I have ever seen.

  • Akasha

    I ate at Akasha for their Sunday morning brunch. According to the staff Akasha just recently added a brunch to their offerings. Over the phone I asked if there was a GF menu and was told that they don't have a GF menu because they can't be sure of cross contamination, but that the staff is knowledgeable. When I came here for brunch my server didn't know what items were GF (other than a couple of bakery goods). I suggested a few items that I thought my be GF and so our server talked to the kitchen staff and came back and told me that she couldn't be sure if either item was GF. I asked for some suggestion of what to order and it was clear the server didn't know what to suggest, so finally I ordered one of the GF bakery items, scrambled eggs, and bacon. The food tasted good, but the prices were a bit high, and it took forever for our food to be ready. By the way, a table next to ours also felt that it took a long time for their food to be ready. I'm still searching for a great place to eat a GF breakfast and this isn't it. Our server did comment that she was more knowledgeable about what is GF on the dinner/lunch menu. Maybe I'll try coming back for dinner. If you are thinking of eating breakfast here then you might want to wait a few months so that the staff has a chance to figure out what is GF and what isn't.

    There are a few salads, kids fruit, and a kids Sunday, that are labeled GF. The salad that I ordered (Waldorf Salad) includes chicken and walnuts, so it is filling. At one time the chicken tortilla soup was labeled GF if you didn't include the tortillas chips (perhaps a shared fryer was a problem). Chicken tortilla soup is no longer labeled as GF. Currently CPK does not sell a GF crust. Food was good.

  • Mastro's Steakhouse

    Mastro's is one of my favorite restaurants! It is the best steak house that I have ever been to. The food is excellent including the chicken that my wife ordered. If you say you have a food allergy or special diet then the chef comes out to your table to tell you what is safe to eat. Most of the items are GF or can be made GF. This is one of the few restaurants without a GF menu that I feel completely comfortable dining at. The prices are HIGH, but worth the money. For most people, including myself, this is a special occasion restaurant. I forget what our bills have been like, but at least $100 per person even if we only have one drink each. .

  • Coco's Bakery Restaurant

    2 starsAugust 31, 2013

    5350 Sepulveda Boulevard, Culver City, CA 90230

    I went here for dinner because I heard they had a GF menu. I might consider coming here for breakfast because their GF breakfast menu is bigger and could be a better bet for safety. There were only three options for GF lunches and dinners. I had the grilled chicken and it was overly salty and was not something I would order again. I told the server that my item had to be GF and that I had a medical condition. I could tell that she had no idea what I was talking about because she responded back to me with some up beat comments about eating healthy. It was as if I had just told her that I was on a low salt diet. My chicken arrived with grilled vegetables, which I had asked for, and rice pilaf that I had not asked for. The rice pilaf isn't listed on the GF menu, so I sent the rice back in favor of the mashed potatoes that were on the GF menu. The mashed potatoes tasted strongly like fake butter and I would not order them again. If you've never been to a Cocos then you should know that they are a family restaurant. Most of the people eating here for dinner were elderly.

    All meat gluten free except for chicken legs which have beer batter. Tabbouleh, pasta, and bread at salad bar is not gluten free. The rolls are gluten free. Food was great!

    Lots of GF items. Prices of frozen food is more than the Ralph's I go to.

    They do NOT have a gluten free menu. They do offer GF pizza crusts and GF bread, but you have to ask questions to figure out what is truly GF. I did not feel entirely confident that the person who took our orders knew what she was talking about, so I just stuck to the pizza. If you eat here be prepared to ask questions.

    Enjoyed the GF French toast! The rest of my family enjoyed the non GF food. Can get a bit noisy during busy times.

    Maybe around 8 to 10 GF option. Chips are not GF because are not made in GF fryer . Food was good!

  • Rosa Mexicano Restaurant

    3 starsJune 19, 2013

    155 Seaport Boulevard, Boston, MA 02210

    Big GF menu, but I never got a clear answer as to whether chips were made in a dedicated fryer. I ordered the empanadas as an appetizer and they were greasy but tasty. I also ordered the duck tacos which were just okay. I did eat some chips as nachos were in the GF menu, but I was disappointed by how cold and slightly stale the chips were. Staff knowledge about GF was about average.

    This is the test kitchen location. Doesn't have an actual GF menu, perhaps because menu changes several times a year. I do wish they had an actual GF menu, instead server helps you pick what to order and manager seems to bring out food. GF beer, cider, and rolls.

    Deli that offers Udi's bread as an option on sandwiches. Also has a small selection of GF products including packaged chocolate chip cookies. Were friendly and patient with me. I'm not sure if they know about cross contamination.

    This Chipotle franchise is new and the staff is still figuring things out. They sometime run out if things, but they are friendly and food is the same as other chipotle restaurants.

    Went here for lunch. GF items included a soup, two salads, and ribs with French fries. I didn't trust the fries, so I bought a salad. Salad tasted okay, but was small despite the relatively high price. I left HUNGRY. Everyone else in my group filled up on the bread basket.
