Great gluten free meal. Amazing gluten free onion rings. Not only were the onion rings gluten free but all the fried items (chicken, French fries, sweet potato fries, etc.) are gluten free in order to have a dedicated gluten free fryer. They said they recently changed their recipes in order to be able to have a dedicated fryer. Both my husband and father who are not gluten free also enjoyed their meals and the onion rings. I had a bacon cheese burger on a gluten free bun with fries and more onion rings. Great food nice atmosphere. They also had live music while we were there.
There are a few limitations but a lot we can enjoy. They carry the brioche rolls and bagels from Rising Hearts down the street and the lox plate is awesome if you ask them to warm the bagel or roll in foil or on a clean pan. They’re warm and make me feel like it’s no big deal to be gluten free. Definitely ask questions and explain.
Big disappointment. Limited GF options, high prices, small portions and bad service. Our waiter said that any fried items, including onion rings, are not safe for Celiac’s. I asked if the onion rings could be fried in a pan instead of the shared fryer. Our waiter did not want to ask the chef if frying separately was possible, but finally he agreed to ask. When the server returned to our table he claimed that the chef was refusing to fry onion rings in a separate pan for me. Based on the waiter’s attitude, I doubt he even talked to the chef.
Emailed them before I went and they sounded very committed to it being as safe as possible. Ordered the steak with green beans and tomatoes and didn’t need any adjustments - just made sure I was clear about celiac. All parts also passed the Nima test.
We had a wonderful dinner here! My daughter and I tried the GF onion rings, the New York steak was wonderful, and she had the burger on a GF Rising Hearts brioche bun! We love Rising Hearts GF Bakery! So happy to find their baked goods here! About to try their GF Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream cake!
