Large selection of gluten-free meals. And their one gluten-free chocolate cheesecake is delicious! Our server was very knowledgeable about gluten free. It was a good experience for us.

I just became gluten-free, and it's been a hard adjustment. So naturally, I was scared eating out, as it's supposed to be a fun celebration, and not something to dread. When I called to see if they had a gf menu, they assured me that they absolutely did. When I went there, while the server didn't 100% know if items that weren't labeled gf were (they seemed to be), she checked with both the manager and the chef. Thank goodness that I don't have to loose one of my favorite restaurants. I had the chicken farfalle gf dish and fries for a snack, and didn't have any pain. While they only have one option for cheesecake, it was still good.

We explained my daughter was celiac and the waitress notified the chef who then supervised the preparation of her meal. My daughter is extremely sensitive to cross contamination and it’s been 24 hours and no signs of being sick.

I had the pasta for lunch yesterday. Server did not seem very concerned about the allergy. I have been very sick since last night. Do NOT eat here if you are celiac!

Server didn’t seem to be overly concerned about my gluten free requirement. I’d ask for a manager if you want to eat here. I ordered an omelette and it arrived with potatoes on the plate, and we hadn’t discussed how they’re prepared. Server then explained but it would have been nice to know this before the food appeared in front of me. The good news is: no reaction but doubt I’ll go back here again.

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.
