I knew the risks going in, but I had a coupon for a free slice of cheesecake. I got the "gluten-free" Godiva flourless cheesecake. I don't know if they cut the slice with the same server as was used for cutting regular cheesecakes but I had a single bite (to test it out in case it was really contaminated) and I'm glad I stopped at one. It was delicious but I ended up getting ill not long later.

All the salad dressings contain gluten, so unless you want to eat a dry salad, that's not an option. Waiter was very helpful and the staff was accommodating.

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.

Do not eat here! I was told everything that I had was gluten free, but my salad came out with croutons and I could tell my pasta wasn’t gluten free. I still chose to eat them after they fixed my salad and got sick.

Had a burger with salad. Server was very knowledgeable about what needed to be substituted to make the meal safe and made sure he checked everything before putting the order in (e.g. fries not safe due to fryer). Was very impressed. Edit: ordered a cheesecake slice to go, the one in the display case for was contaminated so I asked for a fresh slice from the back which they happily accommodated.

I had the Caesar Salad, Four Cheese Pasta w/ chicken, and the Godiva Chocolate Chessecake, all gluten free. It was amazing and I had no reaction! This was the Chesterfield, MO location.
