    I seem to be an extremely sensitive celiac. Always anxious when eating out in general. But this was the best gluten free meal I’ve had so far. I had the filet Mignon risotto! The waitress was super patient with all of my cross-contamination questions. And the chef knew his stuff and how to handle my food properly. I even had dessert! Looking forward to trying breakfast soon!

    Best meal I have eaten since becoming gluten free. I had calamari pounded with lemon and capers. I also had pumpkin soup. Chef came to the table to check on us. It's my new go to place.

    Kitchen was very accommodating. I was able to combine the eggs Benedict (with yummy GF Hollandaise sauce) with the fried polenta plate to sub polenta for the English muffin. It would have been nice to know there was a $2.75 sub charge, but it was definitely worth it!

    Adorable country restaurant. Awesome GF pancakes, great service. Family friendly but upscale at the same time. We all had great meals. Will return!

    I love this place! The food is superb, with an excellent wine list. The staff is friendly, and attentive. Although they don't have a designated gluten-free menu, they were very willing to answer my many questions about the dishes, and worked to find a delicious compromise. I have never had a problem after eating here and I'm very sensitive.

    A bit overpriced. They do have GF pancakes but they contain buttermilk so not dairy free. My kids can't have dairy. Breakfast Potatoes are premade and contain butter so they couldn't have those. I guess I figured for a $20 breakfast plate that I'd have potatoes cooked from potatoes, not premade frozen ones. The food tasted good though.

Notes
Gourmet, local, fresh. Chef comes to your table many times to meet guests. Primarily a lunch and dinner restaurant, however they offer a killer Sunday brunch, including GF pancakes!
