Never been sicker in my life, and to add insult to injury, they agreed to issue a refund due to how sick I'd gotten, but all they really did was smile, say sorry and lie to our faces. Never got a refund and been sick for almost a f***ing month. I don't understand how so many people swear by this place when they brought me salad covered in bread and couldn't even cook steak and lobster without cross contamination. The chef even said he has celiac disease? Would have loved to be a fly on the wall in the kitchen that night so I could understand what went so horrifically wrong.

Beware!! Gf menu not available now.. assured me my meal would be gf.. I have been violently ill!!!! Very disappointed because before Covid I was a regular and they always took good care of me! I ate the same meal I usually get but I am very sick :(

Gf menu not available due to Covid!

The last two times I have ordered salad without croutons it has come out with croutons! Once obviously and the other had hidden crumbs after I started eating it?!!! Just recently they are not being attentive. I used to eat here a lot without any issues.

I asked the waiter about precautions in the kitchen and he said they use a separate section of the grill for gluten free items. We ordered the Cobb Salad (no croutons) with chicken and the salmon with mashed potatoes and broccoli. The salmon wasn’t the best we’ve had but we would go back. The salad was good. They have an entire gluten free menu, including desert. The service was good.

They had to cross off items of their paper menu for me due to the pandemic limited item, but soo happy with the choices. I had the shrimp and scallops. They were amazing! Good size and great seasoning!

Wonderful service, will certainly go back. My daughter loved the kids mac and cheese, too!

Most food is available gluten free and the quality and flavor are exceptional!! I had scallops and shrimp and my husband had sea bass, and they were cooked to perfection. The sides were extremely fresh and not generic. The gluten free dessert option was a heavenly brownie with raspberry purée and vanilla ice cream that exceeded our expectation. Highly recommend!!

We went last night for the first time in 7 years and it was amazing. They had paper menus because of the covid19 steps they had to follow so there wasn’t a gluten free menu available but the server was knowledgeable and checked in with the chef on certain items and my meal was amazing. We got the gf bang bang shrimp to start then I had one of the specials, mahi mahi and shrimp and we even got the gf brownie for dessert. We came to Thai same location 7 years ago and even though the manager and chef both came over to talk to me after learning I had celiacs, I still barely got out the door after dinner before I was super sick. So I was hesitant to go back, it took 7 years obviously, but this time everything went great and I never got sick and the food was amazing!

The waitress was not very knowledgeable about gluten free, when I asked why Brussel sprouts weren’t a gluten free option, she said it was because it had ham (gf) and “a bunch of other stuff”??? So I ordered broccoli and she presented me with asparagus and when I asked why, she brushed me off saying, they ran out of broccoli. What?

Recently went to Bonefish Grill. I have a wheat allergy and had zero issues with my food. On top of that it was some of the most delicious gluten free food I’ve had at a restaurant in awhile! They have a dedicated gluten free menu with tons of options. I got the dynamite shrimp and would hands down order it again!

The waiter I had didn’t know what celiacs is, but another waiter assured me that they mark gluten free dishes in the kitchen to avoid cross contamination. They have a pretty good menu selection. I had the sirloin steak, but my mom had the scallops and shrimp and I would definitely recommend that.

Although the restaurant was not busy and the server seemed conscientious, somehow I got a salad with a hidden crouton. Nice GIF menu but it didn’t work out for me. The manager and server were highly apologetic, waiving the cost of my entrée in their concern. I use a laminated celiac diet card that I put out near my drink in every restaurant I visit so there is never any doubt who the celiac meal is intended for. It has saved me from serving mistakes in the past, but it can’t compensate for a cook that doesn’t take food allergies seriously.

Their happy hour menu has nothing safe on it. They do not have a designated frier for fries. However they made me sauteed shrimp with bang bang sauce as a substitution for the happy hour price. They have a separate gluten free menu, just ask!

While they offer a gluten free menu and most of the ingredients would seem naturally gluten free, cross contamination here is a major concern. I ordered the Baja striped bass with mango salsa, jasmine rice, and steamed asparagus while being sure to notify the waitstaff of being celiac with gluten intolerance. Nima sensor tested each part and gluten was detected. They were accommodating after I communicated the gluten detection but only felt safe ordering a garden salad, which isn’t worth the money. Their menu does state they can’t guarantee safety. Despite their kindness I won’t be returning because it doesn’t feel safe.

Great experience. Gluten free menu was amazing. I’m not accustomed to so many options so I was pleased. The wait staff was awesome and made sure to write a huge “GLUTEN FREE” note on our ticket. I definitely felt secure. They also have dessert options which is great. Again not accustomed to that. Great experience.

Be careful dining here. They have a gluten free menu with select dishes. Explained that I was celiac & asked whether a dinner special was gluten free. Waiter asked manager, who said all but 1 ingredient was gluten free but dish could be modified. To my regret I ordered it & got glutened. Never had issues with other Bonefish Grill restaurants.

Excellent experience here! Great service, tasty food, and safe eating even for my sensitive Celiac husband. Their seasonal veggies and their asparagus are individually bagged, so we opted for those since they seemed safer. The waiter was really kind and really informative and patient with us, plus very knowledgeable. It's expensive food, but AMAZINGLY tasty food, and just a great time (especially when you're not getting sick). We took a gamble since the only review was negative but was SIX YEARS ago. As it turned out, we were fine!

I had never had a problem at any of the Bonefish Grill. After church we went there for brunch (done this before). I ordered off their GF menu. When my omelet came out there was bread on the plate. I explained that even having the toast on the plate would make me very sick & requested it be redone. No more than 2 minutes & they brought it back out. I was shocked at how quickly it was redone & was told they had another one almost ready. As I removed a cup of spinach from the plate, there were what appeared to be crumbs on the plate next to the omelet. My husband confirmed that they were as he could taste the crumbs. He immediately stated we were leaving. We did contact the management & Sean was very attentive to correcting the problem. Yes, because of Sean’s actions we will visit Bonefish again.

Questioned honesty about making a new plate. They seem very nice, there is a lot of options. My concern is I said I have a allergy and they still put bread on my plate. I explained that the bread even touching my food would make me sick. They took the plate back and came back with a "new" plate immediately. I could see the burn marks from the first omelette, it was the same one.

My mom took me here as my first meal out after being diagnosed with celiac disease. She did some research and found that they have a separate menu, a separate prep space, and more. The server was fantastic, the gluten free menu, while small, still had a decent amount of options (I was happy with it), and the gluten free brownie sundae was soooo good! I highly recommend!

2 stars for their knowledge from the manager we called ahead of time and waitstaff. GF menu and specific prep area/glove change instructions offered before we arrived. Reminded server of celiac disease and he understood and asked unprompted if he wanted the bang bang shrimp cooked in the GF environment or just GF friendly with cross contamination fryer. We specified must be GF because of celiac disease.

Negative 2 stars because of the reality. Our son, on his 13th birthday, after a call ahead and reminders when we arrived, got severely glutened for the first time since his diagnosis. So he’s spending his birthday night in the bathroom and laying with a heating pad.

Our server was great, and assured me that the kitchen is well trained on how to cater to celiacs. I ordered the superfood salmon salad off of the gluten free menu, but unfortunately realized after several bites that they had put farrow in it. The manager was super apologetic, explaining that they (The kitchen/chef) didn’t realize farrow is wheat based. Celiacs, I think they can cater to us, but I recommend that you proceed with extreme questioning and caution about each ingredient to avoid being glutened like I was. Feeling pretty crappy now.
