    Very willing to make adjustments for someone who can't eat gluten, but cross-contamination is likely as everything is cooked on the same grill. Things to watch out for: breaded onions in the soup, soy sauce in the fried rice, other sauces, as well as the salad dressing (ask for oil/vinegar). Make sure to let your chef know you're gluten-free.

    The food on the gluten-free menu is delicious, the view fantastic (we saw whales!), the service friendly. The manager himself brought me my food, and was very kind.

    The Old Spaghetti Factory has long been one of my favorite restaurants. When I discovered I was celiac it was wonderful to find out they had a gluten-free menu. My favorite is the Mizithra spaghetti with marinated chopped chicken. It's been delicious each time I've had it and I have never had problems with it. I'm not super sensitive though. Cross-contamination is possible, which is why marked it as a "no" for celiac-friendly. Tip: Let the waiter/waitress know you're celiac or allergic/intollerant. They are required to tell the management and a manager will usually make sure everything is okay, and deliver your food themselves. Want to be really sure you're safe? Ask for a manager immediately.
