Sweet potato fries were marked GF. I specifically asked if there was a dedicated separate fryer. After saying they would check, they brought me the meal with the fries saying they were in fact GF. Three hours later I am feeling sick. Definitely got burned here. Be careful.

Absolutely the best GF lobster roll ever. Worth the splurge. We were told the fries and chips are cooked in dedicated fryers.

They had things marked as gluten free on their menu and said they had a dedicated gluten free fryer. However, I got extremely sick after eating here. Definitely would not trust them to ever go back.

Server even asked if cross contamination was a problem - which it is - and prepared me a gluten free meal. Delicious and no reaction.

I had an amazing meal of salmon! It was communicated with the kitchen that I had an allergy and I felt safe eating there.

I have gone to Bostonia a few times and I get sick every time. I always alert my server of my allergy but they must season their meat or cook it in something not celiac safe. I have gotten the steak salad twice and reacted both times. 0/10 for allergy friendly from me.

The food here was amazing. We ordered a charcuterie board without bread and the bartender offered us gluten free bread. I had a burger with lobster on top with a gluten free bun! It was so good.

They have a gluten free indicator on meals. I informed the server I was gluten free. I was eating breakfast, so no food yet today. The meal was delicious, but I don’t think they put my home fried potatoes in their dedicated fryer? I started reacting near the end of the meal. Swollen abdomen, heartburn, itching all day.

Chris was a great bar tender. I had the chicken sandwich on a GF bun and had no issues. Also got the potato gratin and Bostonian baked beans as sides and it was delicious. Hubby enjoyed the crab dip with salt and pepper chips. Chris made sure to confirm with chef for allergies. Great place to go. Nice atmosphere.

They definitely claimed to be gluten free and dairy allergy friendly but my friend got so sick from eating here and there was hair in 2 of our dishes. The waitress said she “googled” if a drink recipe was allergy friendly- it wasn’t once we actually looked up the ingredients after her throat was itchy.

The food was delicious and safe. They seemed well-informed about CC, etc. I had a salad, and it came on a differently shaped and designed plate than the plate my mother’s regular salad came on. They also carried my food out separately, which always puts my mind at ease.

I’ve been here a number of times before and usually have had a positive experience. I returned last night and told the waiter I had celiac disease before I ordered some French fries. He came back to tell me that they had gotten busy so started using their dedicated fryer to fry foods containing gluten, but the chef said it should still probably be okay. I told him it was not okay as cross contamination is a huge issue and canceled my order. I’m disappointed that they compromised a safe gluten free environment for the sake of time.

HOLY SMOKES THIS PLACE WAS FANTASTIC! It was the first restaurant we tried in Boston and it was so good we went back for lunch the next day! The warm lobster roll was delicious- the bread was incredibly soft and the lobster was so fresh. The french fries were phenomenal and I fell in love with the house pickles. But what really made this experience next-level is that as I ordered off the gluten-free menu the waitress asked "is that preference or an allergy?" They did this each of the times we were there, and as a Celiac it completely put my mind at ease. A fantastic experience all the way around.
