My server Chelsea was great at explaining what is gluten free on the menu as it is not marked. They have gluten free buns, bread, and a separate fryer which is amazing! They can also fry anything in their rice flour to make it GF! I had the OMG burger with zucchini fries 😍 incredible!

Was in Sarasota for a week for work and my husband and I came to Boca 3 times because we loved it so much. They have a gluten free bun for their burgers (which taste amazing btw- the OMG burger doesn’t lie) and their menu clearly denotes GF for items that are gluten free. But on top of that they were so willing to modify anything necessary to account for allergies. I have a few and they bent over backwards to accommodate. Plus the food is delicious. I love farm to table fresh ingredients. Make sure to ask about gluten free options. Their zucchini fries are delicious and fried in a gluten free flour but the menu didn’t show that.

Had the OMG Burger with a GF bun and Parmesan truffle fries. It was delicious!! They have limited items that are gluten free. The bartender was a little rough around the edges but we love the atmosphere here and would definitely recommend it to others. Great, unique ambiance here!

Aside from salads not much for GF and our waitress didn't know about adjusting the item. Too bad because it is a happening place, but much better choices on Main Street such as Duval's and Patrick's. i did speak to the asst. manager on the way out who assured me that items could be adjusted to be GF. So, if you are looking for a happening place and are assertive this place may work for you.

My GF husband had shrimp and grits which were soupy and when he asked for a spoon was given a teaspoon!

Not a ton of gluten free options, but most dishes can be modified to be gluten-free. Food was excellent!

I’m writing this in the middle of a gluten reaction. My first experience here was brunch and everything went fine. I had the goat cheese salad (modified slightly) and added grilled chicken to it. But tonight I went back for my second time (dinner) and ordered the same meal (to be safe). The waiter forgot the chicken, and then when I asked about it he acted like I hadn’t ordered it. He then had the kitchen grill me chicken (separate from the salad), and it took a very long time (at least 20 minutes). I was already feeling gluten symptoms by the time I left, and I feel like they rushed the chicken and there was some cross contamination. My husband (non celiac) didn’t like his food much either time we went, so there’s not really a draw for us to go back. Very expensive, and even though they comped my chicken because of the delay the pile of spinach with some goat cheese was $11 on its own.

Very helpful and knowledgeable. My server was Enrique and he is trustworthy when it comes to Celiac. Other staffers tried to help but were not knowledgeable. I had a burger with lettuce cups and no bun. Broccolini on the side

Stopped by for brunch and was sad when I looked at the menu. The menu didn't have great options listed as GF (mostly salad) but the waiter brought the chef over and he was extremely accommodating. Everything is made from scratch so they can prepare a meal with allergies in mind.

I especially appreciated that the meat they use is high quality. The beef is 100% grass fed.

I'll be visiting again and will update the review as needed.

My husband and I Decided on Boca after we walked Park Ave looking at restaurant menus and talking with restaurant staff about there gluten free options. We were looking for a new place to try and the menu here was very appealing as it is marked with the items that can be made GF. First off our waiter James was extremely kind and helpful with the menu. He was very knowledgeable and for the items he wasn't 100% sure he checked with the chef. Despite my million questions he never made me feel like I was a problem. Because it's a farm to market restaurant the meals are cooked to order which is awesome because they know the ingredients in everything. James had the head Chef Victor come out to discuss the menu with me before ordering lunch, and I can't say enough good things about him! I had told him the last farm to kitchen restaurant I had been to made me very sick so I was very nervous about eating there and he assured me that he would take care of me! Even though there are plenty of options on the menu I was in the mood for seafood so he created me a dish with some of my favorite items all Celiac safe. It tasted amazing and I'm looking forward to heading back to see James and Victor again soon!
