Ordered from the gluten free menu (limited), discussed it with the waiter, he announced the dishes as being gluten free when he delivered them; sick as a dog an hour later with my typical wheat exposure symptoms........

The “gluten friendly” menu clearly states that they provide it only for those “avoiding gluten” and that cross contamination isn’t only possible but will happen due to a shared kitchen. The only way to even order the entrees also makes ordering them online for delivery impossible since they disable special instructions on all platforms and you have to specify “no flour” modification to make the entrees “gluten friendly”. Total fail.

Their “gluten free” menu is a gluten-friendly menu, some of the items say to “just order and ask to not be dusted with flour.” As a celiac, I would steer clear from this establishment.

My employer was hosting our holiday work party here with a $40 family style meal for everyone. I asked the restaurant if I could order off the gf menu and sit with my party because I have Celiac. They said no. They refused to let me participate in our work event because they said I would eat the gluten food and not pay. I contemplated suing them for discrimination but I was so mad and frustrated I decided to let it go and never, ever go there again. In retrospect I should have sued them.

Only a “gluten-friendly” menu, so contamination is very likely.
