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.

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.

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.
