We have eaten here a few times with no issues afterwards. Tonight I learned they have a dedicated fryer and gf buns. Staff was knowledgeable about celiac. And not to mention the Godiva cheesecake is heavenly.

Very limited options for such a big menu. GF bun is dry and not good flavor so would recommend going without the bun. Giving 2 stars because the GF cheesecake is still delicious

I went to the Ridgedale Mall location, and staff seemed to be knowledgeable about gf menu options. However, within two hours I was sick after having a “gf” shrimp and pasta. I was too sick to even attempt to eat my maybe gf Godiva chocolate cheesecake....On the bright side, at least my meal was tasty for the few hours it was with me.

Was assured my meal was Celiac friendly after explaining many times to our waitress. Got a cheeseburger with gf bun and gf fries. Was sick within 15 minutes, full blown glutened. They obviously do not take Celiac or GF seriously. Ruined 2 days of my trip. Stay far away!!

ordered the four cheese pasta gluten free, plenty of the menu can be gluten free upon request so I had tons of options! Waiter understood my request and I wasn’t glutened.

BE CAREFUL EATING HERE! I was told by two waitresses two different things at two different occasions. The first waitress told me that they’re super careful in the kitchen, they have a separate fryer for fries, and they prepare food in a designated area of the kitchen. I thought, “great!” And got the four cheese pasta and didn’t think anything of it. The second waitress told me that they use the same water to boil ALL of their pasta and they use the same utensils for everything. I was upset that i was told two different things at different occasions and could’ve possibly been glutened. It’s clear that their waitresses/waiters aren’t educated on allergen protocols, especially gluten. I ended up just getting a salad with their balsamic because that was the only thing that was gluten free… boring!

Had a great experience! Staff was knowledgeable about the availability of gluten free and it was clearly marked on the menu. I had the “shrimp with Angel hair pasta” but subbed the pasta for gluten free. I even had a gluten free cheesecake with strawberries! I told my waiter that I have a gluten allergy and I did not have a reaction after.

Would NOT recommend any of their pastas. I ordered one of their pastas with gluten free noodles and said I had an allergy, but there weren’t few wheat noodles found in my pasta. I got very sick.

I’ve been two separate times and have been gluten-ed twice. The drive is terrible and the kitchen is constantly messing everything up. The first visit they served me the wrong pasta.. the second visit they served me the wrong cheesecake. My husband also gets cross contaminated EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. It’s too expensive to get terrible service and to just get sick from.
