Went here for a work event with very low expectations. The organizer had called ahead about my dietary restrictions (tree nuts, soy, and gluten) and the waiter (although unenthusiastic) was able to give me very straight forward answers to what I could and couldn’t have. I had the lobster risotto and had a mild stomach ache after but that could’ve very well been the sheer amount of dairy consumed 😅 Not the best establishment for allergies but certainly not the worst

Tips


Celiac

Be very cautious dining here as Celiac. Personally have dined here in the past three years and unsure if they take allergies seriously. This is a tourist spot. I recommend Scales.

Weren’t a ton of labeled options but the server told me they have a separate fryer for GF and can modify options to be GF. The people who delivered the food were unsure about the allergy when asked so it’s important to confirm when you receive your food here. I didn’t feel sick even though I was nervous to eat here so I would recommend.

We ate as a large corporate group with reservations and the restaurant could not get anything right. Dinner arrived two full hours after initial seating. The waitress said my salad would be prepared separately and the chicken would be cooked in a separate pan. However I received a completely different salad than I ordered and then could not feel reassured how it was prepared after all. Will not eat here again.

Moderate selection of GF items and the staff was happy to make note of the allergy to the kitchen. Oysters were delicious and many of the seafood entrees (non fried ) were GF.

Very attentive staff. Plenty of gluten free options on the menu and staff aware of cross contact issues for celiac. Also offered to make any substitutions as needed. Upfront that it is shared frier so nothing fried safe but otherwise great food, options and service

Do not come here if you have multiple allergies or have celiac disease. All they can accommodate is for those who choose gf or those who can handle cross-contamination. Called ahead to see if they could accommodate a gluten and dairy allergy. The person on the phone assured me they could. However, this is not the case. The waitress informed me that the kitchen was too packed with orders to make any changes to their prearranged meals. Manager was also not accommodating and came across as rude. My only dinner option was to order an appetizer that did not contain either gluten and dairy and pray that it did not make me sick. Food took an hour to be served and came cold. Most likely was not safe either, but not did not get sick from gluten. Between the pre-arranged meals and the rude manager I will not be back.
