Big GF menu here! Make sure you tell the waitstaff about your allergy and verify the dish is safe when it is brought to your table (it’s a big restaurant and I see how they could accidentally swap two plates). One time they put tortilla strips on my dish bc they brought the regular dish, not the GF one. They recovered well, apologized, and have always been a very kind staff. Just make sure it’s safe (like at any restaurant).

I was super impressed with the gluten-free options and the care the staff took to eliminate cross-contamination. Also, getting complementary gluten-free bread is always a win in my book.

Excellent Gluten Free menu: appetizers, salads, entree’s include pasta, fish, chicken, and beef. Even GF bread. Our server was very attentive and when my food was presented it was stated that it was GF. Wonderful safe dining.

Has own gluten free menu with everything from appetizers to desserts. They also have a gluten free bread that is served before meals. I let the staff know that I had Celiac and they were extremely accommodating. Informed the kitchen who took all necessary precautions. I got the chicken picatta which was delicious. No reaction from the meal! Would eat head again!

They have one of the largest gluten free menus I’ve seen. They do a wonderful job of making allergies known to the chefs. I have other allergies which makes going out to eat very difficult. They are always very accommodating. One of my favorite restaurants.

Ordered gluten free Mexican Drunken Shrimp. Tested with Nima and results showed gluten. Shrimp also appeared to be deep fried, which should not have been since they do not have a dedicated fryer.

Was very disappointed with my meal here on 7/30/19. I ordered a gluten free risotto and talked about the severity of celiac and I was assured that the kitchen had a procedure so there would be no cross contamination. "don't worry we handle this a lot here, you'll be safe". There was many errors with the ordering and they were bringing two of each appetizer. Then when my short rib risotto came the plating was horrible and it looked like there was caked on food that was not washed off the bowl. When I started eatting the $26 dish I found random other food in my meal. This made me feel uncomfortable because if that made it into the bowl what else may have came into contact. I informed the manager and sent my food back. The manager apolagise and did give a complimentary dinner for next time (won't feel comfortable eatting here again though)

I told my waiter that I was Celiac and he knew my requirements immediately. However, I was brought brioche that was accompanied by a knife that was dirty. The knife had crumbs and grease stains on it. I told the waiter why it was important that I not eat bread cut with the same knife. He skirted the issue and then returned to the kitchen. The issue went unaddressed, which demonstrated to me that a real awareness of the core issues was not there. I love this restaurant and have been a wine club Member for many years. I am sorely disappointed.

Excellent gluten free menu. However, server knowledge is very poor. They asked if my one year old had an allergy or preference. The first time we were there they accidentally served her wheat pasta. We tried again, hoping it was a fluke, and they served her cross contaminated fries. Scary.

Love that they give you endless GF bread at the table LIKE NORMAL GLUTINOUS PEOPLE. But don't fill up, because the real food is amazing. Bacon wrapped "drunken" shrimp, lettuce wraps (big as a meal but priced as an app), short rib risotto and burgers are all worth writing home about. You can also get wine samples at the table, free of charge.

Love, love, love this place. Wonderful gf menu. Looks like a real menu. (No Deciphering). They even serve a warm gf bun/bread with wine tastings or dinner. My husband and I have been gf for about 6 months. We love to dine out. This is our favorite place so far. We go at least once a month.

Great gf menu. But I was contaminated because they put a gf roll on a wooden board that the other bread goes on. I called the manager the next day and He made sure that wouldn't happen again. But I get the impression they really go to great lengths here. I did get reaction but wouldn't anticipate it again.

A favorite! The gf menu is huge! It is almost overwhelming to pick my entree. The lettuce wraps are amazing and they always offer me gluten free bread (the same roll they use for sandwiches and burgers) when my husband gets the pretzel bread. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly.

Went for business lunch yesterday & everyone in my party was impressed with the choice. Rachel our waitress was discreet about my GF and brought a specific GF bread loaf as well as asked if i wanted the GF specific menu. The problem came when the food was delivered by a male waiter. He loudly & repeatedly said "Rachel.is coming with the allergy"!! As if serving the men at the table first wasnt bad enough, he took what was an elevated experience & told not only my coworkers but new boss about my medical condition 🙈. At least the risotto was really good.
