Ordered a GF crepe and was told ALL crepes could be made as GF. I don't think anything was cleaned or that cross contamination was a concern. I had my crepe and a hot chocolate and got very sick.

its breakfast, what's not to love!!!! I always get the Citron Crepe -GF. Never had a problem with cross contamination. I would take Chez Elle over 1st Watch any day, but its downtown and a bit farther to drive for us to get there 😐

I was concerned for the same reason Ryan was! They appeared to clean the griddle and I did not have any reaction. I'm celiac and very sensitive! Will definitely be coming back!

Although the cashier described the process to try and minimize cross contamination, when the chef made my gf crepe he did not follow that description. The griddle was initially wiped down well, but then he forgot what he was doing and put the normal batter on the freshly cleaned griddle. After this misstep, he only swished across the griddle with a dry paper towel once. He also appeared to use the gf utensils on the normal batter he mis-poured and then didn't switch again when he went to make my gf crepe. Overall a sad experience since the crepe looked delicious and we had seen such positive reviews.

It was like a trip to a gluten free Paris! Absolutely amazing. I asked them to clean the grill and change gloves, no problem.

Awesome! Talked to the cashier about gluten free items. Had them change gloves and wipe off the grill before making my meal and they did. Was happy to see they also have separate utensils stashed up on high shelves that they pull down to make a gluten free item. I had an egg and cheese crepe and it was delicious. I would've ordered a banana Nutella had I not been so full. Oh you can also watch them make your food. This has become increasingly helpful to me now that I have to avoid cross-contamination. I was confident my meal would be safe before I started eating.

Delightful experience. The staff was very attentive and took the time to clean the cooking surface. It is wonderful to see businesses like this one providing gluten free meals for people who don't have a choice. We will be back!

Had a wonderful meal and NO repercussions. We were out with an all options couple and I could enjoy the same foods as them. So much less drama about me. Plus the food is delicious. We went on a Friday and from 5pm-7pm there is a special. For $25 you can get a savory crepe, soup or salad, a sweet crepe and a glass of decent wine!

I have eaten at Chez Elle multiple times and have found it delightful! Not only has the staff bent over backwards to meet my GF needs, but went above and beyond for our recent wedding anniversary. It was on a Sunday, so we went for lunch. We ordered a savory crepe each, mine gluten free while my husband regular. When the staff learned it was a special occasion, they wanted us to choose a dessert crepe on the house. We chose a chocolate cherry delight, and expected it to be modified with a regular GF crepe rather than the chocolate crepe as listed. To our surprise, the chef made a whole batch of GF chocolate batter for just our one dessert! I HIGHLY recommend this excellent restaurant to both regular AND GF clientele.
