Restaurant was very friendly and went above and beyond. Waitress took one of the menus and marked okay or not okay on every single item for me! Food was great and I did not get sick.

Our server was highly attentive and told me I could order just about anything on the menu and they'd make it gluten free. She wasn't wrong. I ordered the shrimp appetizer that had gluten in it, and it took a few more minutes than the rest of my party's food -- but it came out, totally glutenless. I ordered a tamale entree that was naturally gluten free, and a peach ice cream dessert that came out with brown sugar sprinkles on top. The waitress literally ran back to my table and scooped it up about 20 seconds later, saying there was likely gluten in the sprinkles. She apologized profusely and then brought me another one. Fortunately, I didn't have a reaction to the tiny bite I took.

All in all, they were super attentive and the kitchen clearly knows its stuff even if that mistake was made.

Came here for a work dinner and was impressed. They didn’t have a gluten free menu, but the staff was knowledgeable about the products. Not many non-seafood options. I got the duck and cream brûlée!

This a great special occasion restaurant for anyone with celiac. Be sure to mention it when you make a reservation and they will be ready to help with menu options of which there were many. Unfortunately some of the more renowned dishes are off limits like the turtle soup and the bread pudding soufflé. I had the grilled whole gulf fish which was cooked to perfection and their creme brûlée is one of the best I’ve ever had. Very attentive staff even on a busy holiday weekend evening. I felt great the next day.

Knowledgeable staff about celiac and world class service. One of the best restaurants anywhere and one of the best dining experiences you will have anywhere. I've been over 20 times, and it always impresses. Eating gluten-free and vegetarian there's no problem there. I'm not sure about the negative review... I always get crème brûlée for dessert. But no, you can’t have the strawberry shortcake. That’s how celiac disease works.

Old, over priced and they really don’t understand what is gluten free. Waiter tried to insist that farro was ok for me. When I asked that it not be on my plate I still found a few kernels under my vegetables. Be very careful if you choose to go.

Albeit a little overpriced and the decor pretty dated, this seminal NOLA spot has some incredible flavors. Our server was really knowledgable about ingredients and modifications and said almost anything could be tweaked to be gf. I had the three course menu with compressed melon salad, bbq shrimp and brie grits, and the creme brûlée to finish. An excellent meal that I would've rated five stars except the back room smelt mildewy and my companions rated their meals only ok.
