The Shepherd’s Pie is a must! A firm favourite tho too big to finish! Items marked on main menu. Did not have cheesecake though a few are marked on the menu.

Few options available on menu, celiac son could choose from gluten free pasta, grilled chicken or grilled salmon from children's menu. Be sure to tell them you are a celiac, the waiter advised against the fries as they are cooked in the same fryer as gluten items. I did not ask about the pasta. My son had the chicken, I had the sweet corn tamale cakes and neither of us had issues later but overall we did not enjoy the meal.

Great late night spot. We went after visiting John Hancock center for Chicago night views. Outdoor seating area is nice at the base. BEST PART for service kudos. Server told us that the fryer was shared with non-gf, so we were going to bypass the fries. But the server then came back and let us know that since it was near closing time, they may have cleaned the fryers already, and could do clean oil to make us fries . We said Yes. This is a restaurant that empowers its folks to do good things. The fries were awesome.

Fabulous gluten free options. Gorgeous burger with sweet potato fries, shrimp pasta and they even altered the fettuccine alfredo sauce for us. Amazing food, service, and yes the Godiva cheesecake is to die for. 3 celiacs did not get sick.

Godiva Chocolate GF cheesecake was out of this world! Been forever since I've enjoyed good tasting cheesecake. I was told it was the only GF cheesecake option. We did not purchase a meal, just cheesecake!

Knowledgable wait staff and lots of food choices. You can even have a piece of cheesecake (and it's chocolate)!

Was told a menu item was gluten free but when I reordered it on my next visit I was told it was not. This leaves very little trust on their knowledge of the GFmenu selections

I have eaten here a handful of times since being diagnosed as gluten intolerant. They have a pretty extensive gluten free menu, but I’ve had mixed results in eating there safely. I think it comes down to which server you get and how seriously they take your gluten allergy. The first 3 times I ate there, I was fine. Then over the next 3 times, I got sick 2/3 times, unfortunately.

Though the menu says that they have a lot of gluten free options, when I asked I found out that the GF pasta is made in the same water as normal pasta so it is very contaminated. My waitress was sweet but didn’t understand how serious I was about my allergy. I ended up getting grilled chicken, green beans, and mashed potatoes and didn’t get sick. Definitely be very cautious and ask the right questions before ordering.
