Went on 12/26/2022. Made sure we told the waiter we were all GF for allergy. The pasta came out with a spaghetti noodle. We pointed it out. No manager came by. No apology sent over. They did take that dish off the bill. All of us still were worried we may have issues. Also never get the fries there. They are not safe. We probably won't be going back.

I was told the steak medallions could be made gluten free, though was sick afterward. Leaving 2 stars since the Godiva cheesecake was pretty good.

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!!

I went last night and they were very helpful and knowledgeable. I ordered the tamale cakes and told the server I was GF due to allergy, not lifestyle. She made note and said she would like the kitchen know. When my food came out, I questioned again if it was GF, the server was not sure and took it back to the kitchen to confirm. I appreciated that he didn’t just say yes, but made sure. I felt fine after eating there and the tamale cakes were fantastic!

Menu has "GF upon request" marked on the menu.

Staff said the kitchen is a huge open cross contamination field and unless it was marked she wasn't sure.

I asked about having the Carbonara with the GF pasta and to check that they didn't use flour in the sauce.

She left and confirmed with the kitchen that "there was a modification in the computer to make it GF.

There isn't much in options. For app or desserts. Definitely nothing if cross contamination is an issue.

Ate here for dinner last night and had a great experience! We let our server know of our allergies/food issues as we ordered and had no issues afterward! We even got dessert! They had a dedicated fryer.

I have noticed it has gone downhill when it comes to Being taken seriously when it says gluten-free. I have tried to eat here many times (when I used to work there) and I get sick every time whether it’s a salad, burger or pasta. I have said some thing to not only the kitchen managers but also my regular managers and nothing has changed. Don’t want my fellow celiac’s getting sick. Don’t get me wrong it’s a great restaurant and has great food and I loved working there just wish the kitchen took it seriously.
