We have eaten here several times and each time the wait staff is knowledgeable and understanding. There is not a separate menu but most of items are gluten free or they can make adjustments so that it is prepared gf. Have never had a reaction and the food and service are amazing.

My boyfriend and I ate at 801 Chophouse to celebrate Valentine's Day. Most menu items are gluten-free, and the kitchen takes steps to avoid cross-contamination if you inform them of an allergy. My server was very patient and accommodating, and took the time to go through the menu with me and let me know what I could and could not eat. If our server was ever the slightest bit unsure whether or not a menu item contained gluten, he always double-checked with the kitchen. I did not get sick after eating here. If you have Celiac and are looking to eat a higher-end establishment in Des Moines, perhaps for a special occasion, look no further!

I am traveling and came and ate here. Was very nervous about getting sick again on my trip, but this place accommodated me very well! They had fresh gluten free bread to, and I nearly cried over it. I asked questions and they would go check everything for me just to double check. Would definitely go back.

I have eaten here twice! Food is by far the best food around. Both times wait staff wasn’t really sure what was gluten free but was great about going to the back and asking to check on things. I felt very comfortable eating here and I will be back!

It was very nice to be able to eat out without getting sick. I had a fillet mignon (with blue cheese) with asparagus and hash browns with aged cheddar. I also had Tito’s vodka with freshly squeezed lemonade and St Germain’s liquor. I am extremely sensitive. Felt great and loved my meal. Very knowledgeable staff.
