I ordered the potato soup, which I found out after my husband received his meal is no longer offered gluten free. All the chicken dishes require the kitchen to not add flour to be gf and I did not trust that they would actually help me be safe, so I did not eat.

Do not eat here if you have celiacs. we sat right by the kitchen and I watched the chef the whole time. He never changed his gloves or tongues and he used his hands to grab pasta. when I addressed with staff manager he apologized and barely reprimanded the chef who laughed it off. there menu says the are gig trained but after what I saw that must be a lie. I am usually a easy going person but this was horrible. wait staff was nice.

Great options for gluten free. Menu is very clear about how to order to be sure it is gluten free. And gluten aside, I love the option of subbing pasta for vegetables. I had the Jalapeno Garlic Tilapia with garlic spinach instead of pasta.

They offer one type of gluten free pasta (penne). The waiter was clueless about gluten free ingredients or cross contamination in their dishes and had to take back two dishes we had ordered. Finally got the manager who knew something. Ended up having a burger with lettuce wrap and a chicken dish with gf pasta. In the end they were very apologetic and comped us the meal.

Ordered the angel hair artichoke pasta, asked server to have it made with the GF spaghetti pasta instead. 15 minutes into the meal had a very bad reaction. Not sure if normal pasta was used or it was cross-contamination. Definitely not eating here again.

Walked in the door and the manager said that they had gf noodles, but he had worked in food service since 1993 and had never heard of cross contamination or that gluten could be in sauces or spices etc. Used to go here a long time ago with no issues, not sure what happened to the staff training lately. Didn't stay due to the lack of knowledge.

They had a very nice gf menu with multiple choices. I opted for a shrimp scampi pasta dish using gf spaghetti. It was wonderful! My waitress was very knowledgeable about my needs, and seemed to communicate that well with the kitchen staff.
