Gluten free marked on menu but was able to have a Cheeseburger without the bun. Most sides are GF. Very accommodating. Food was good.

Chef attempted to say that the frier was hot enough to “burn away the gluten” which is why they claim their fried items on their menu is celiac safe and gluten free despite being in a cross contaminated frier. As anyone on this site reading this review would know, that’s impossible and it’s shocking that a chef at a restaurant like this would practice such blatant ignorance for a serious allergy/autoimmune disease. Atmosphere is good and this place would do well for people with a mild gluten intolerance but if cross contamination is an issue, avoid any fried items despite the restaurants claim that it’s gluten free.

They were very good. However, only have one gluten-free vegan option. I Highly recommend they add more variety for the gluten-free vegan clientele and those who would like to have guilt free desserts. It would also be great if they would have healthy, sugar-free desserts! Update: their rice is NOT vegetarian it has chicken broth!!! But their menu leads customers to believe it is. They are not flexible, customers come second. No substitute!!!

Their menu has lots of GF options but I’m not convinced they understand about cross-contamination. That being said the little had grilled shrimp kids meal with grapes and did not get sick. Server said they did not have a dedicated fryer.

Circles is my FAVORITE!! When I inform the waitstaff of my food allergies at the beginning of my visit, I’ve always had a wonderful experience!

Delicious & fresh food that is beautiful to behold, and a relaxing to enjoy it in.

It’s like vacation!! Relax waterside, feel the breezes and listen to the music .... all compelling you to slow down and enjoy!

I have eaten there a dozen or more times.

Once I inform the staff of my needs, they will stop everything if I order a questionable dish until they check with the chef. If it’s not safe, they offer a substitute or variation. Most of the time, it’s a simple variation! This is how I stumbled onto my favorite entree there: Grilled Salmon. It’s AMAZING!

Enjoy!

The staff here is not knowledgeable about the gluten-free items on their menu. The menu was labeled with GF options however it is incorrect. They offer tortilla chips that are cooked in a shared fryer. The executive chef says that this is safe. Absolutely not safe. The entire staff including the chef need to be educated. I did not eat here.
