I’m really sorry to leave this review because we have eaten at other CF without problems. The server was extremely knowledgeable and even double checked what was safe for a celiac with the kitchen. Unfortunately the runner brought out a gluten pasta instead of gf pasta. My celiac daughter had already eaten some pasta before the mistake was caught. The server felt bad, manager felt bad. They took it off our bill. But I know my daughter will never feel she can eat there safely again after this error.

DO NOT GO. I was assured 5 times my food was gluten free. It was not. Absolutely incompetent staff to let this happen. Do not trust them. The whole corporation has poor food quality management, and will ruin your evening and days to come with dread.

I ordered the lowlicious cheesecake with strawberries and the four cheese gluten free pasta. I said it was an allergy and I needed there to be no cross contamination. They probably did that, but they failed to notice or inform me that the pasta itself is made in a facility containing wheat. I got sick about 20 minutes after eating. But, if you don’t have a high sensitivity to cross contaminated foods, then I would recommend this meal.

I go to this place all the time. I only had one incident were there was none GF pasta mix into my food. The manager who was GF was very good at handling the situation. I just make sure that they know I am Have a medical GF problem and that usually solves it. So be careful here but I don’t get sick ever.

Ordered the shepherds pie, which is made gluten free. Very good. They had gluten free cauliflower crust in place of their flatbread and also could have burgers gluten free. Lots of other options. Shared a gluten free cheesecake with my wife which was really good.

They didn't ask me if it was an allergy. The runner wasn't clear about the food being gluten free. Judging from the pain last night and today, I 100% was given a gluten full meal. Never again, that was awful.
