    We have had gluten free breakfasts many times here. We had breakfast this past mother's day. We ordered gluten free pancakes for our celiac son. Once we got the pancakes, we this time decided to test his pancakes with their gluten free syrup with our ELISA gluten free test kit(our 13 year old never gets sick-just stops growing when eats gluten). The test early on seemed negative(takes 10-15 minutes to complete). My son who is also diabetic could not wait thinking it was OK ate his pancake. At the end of the test, unfortunately, a faint positive appeared disappointing all of us. We had a long talk with the manager(who is celiac herself !) about somewhere cross-contamination occurred. The gluten free batter is from Sweet Ali's gluten free bakery-not questioning that-we tested the gluten free cinnamon roll(also from Sweet Ali's) after taking it to go at home, and it came out negative.

    Our celiac son's gluten free meal tested positive for guten with our Elisa gluten test kit. The rest of our meals were very good. Manager of course refunded his meal and did feel very bad. I think too many hands moving around in kitchen area. His garlic mash potatoes had bit of my other son's sweet mash potato on the edge-obvious cross contamination. Since test takes about 10-15 minutes, celiac son unable to eat and left hungry and very sad. Learned our lesson, rest of our trip we tested his meal first before ordering any other meals.

    Great service. Both waitress and manager spending extra time to make sure all safe for our celiac son. Steak was cooked on foil to prevent cross contamination.

    NOT SAFE for celiacs. NO separate colander for gluten free pasta. Even manager admitted to us "flour all over the air" due to pizza making in the kitchen. Waiter was clueless, made us wait almost 20 minutes till manager arrived. We had to walk out.

    Loved our service. We walked out of Biaggi's accross the street since manager admitted NOT SAFE for celiacs. Here complete opposite. Both waitress and manager(Vanessa and Tiffany) went out of their way to make sure all safe for our celiac son. He walked out of Biaggis with tears, super smile over here. We tested fries, burger and gluten-free bun with Elisa gluten test kit--All test negative for gluten.

    Went twice during week very early. First time waitress extremely helpful for our celiac son even made sure kitchen wore gloves making his salad. Both meals he had steak, salad and uncut bake potato. Second visit different waitress ok but messed up my order a bit. Overall, food very good.

    Second year disappointed. More questions revealed fries NOT SAFE for celiacs, probably contaminated vat according to manager--They comped our one son's regular meal to go and we walked out. Celiac son very sad, though.

    Excellent gluten free menu. Chef even came to our table to explain how 3-4 plates of pasta pre-boiled first of the day with clean pots to avoid cross contamination and other methods during the day to avoid cross contamination of other meals. My celiac son had the 12 oz almost foot long graucho skirt steak with rice beans and corn-loved it. Wife and I shared the thai steak salad and thai curry-spicey hot-pasta(both also gluten free). We loved our meals too. Update- NO gluten free beer as of 08/04/2014. The only negative while we were there.

    Happy to find all gluten free menu. Son with celiac had garbanzo bean soup with side of basmati rice and loved it. Even our older son who can eat gluten loved their ribs. Wife and I had both curry dishes also excellent.

    Pricey but good selection of gluten free. Half price wine by the glass at happy hour helped. Their elk medallions melt in your mouth after a coupled bites.

    We walked in then walked out when finding out NO gluten free pasta. Not sure but think gluten free pizzas share same oven with regulars.
