I made a reservation online and put a note “need one gluten free menu”. From the start the waitress was super on it. She brought me gluten free bread that wasn’t on the usual bread board that their non-gluten-free pretzel bread is served on. I haven’t ever been given table bread so I was stoked. The gluten free menu is extensive. The waitress told me that the food takes a little bit longer because it is prepared separately to be safe. Love love love. There are five gluten-free desserts available. The food itself was very good and while I don’t drink, the other tables had some cool decanter situation happening. A little pricey but worth it to not get sick.

I have severe celiac disease and I love this place. I've eaten here so many times off the gluten-free menu and never had a problem. One of my favorite places to eat I wish more restaurants were as good as this place and make sure that their food is actually gluten-free and celiac friendly

I got sick from eating here, even though I ordered from the gluten free menu. The waitress was very nice and the food was delicious. However, it was not worth getting sick over.

I unfortunately got sick here both times I’ve gone. It is a shame because the food tastes incredibly good. I had the drunken shrimp and braised beef risotto both times. I tend to give a second chance to restaurants, but after the second time getting sick I can’t go back.

When an order is placed from the gluten-free menu it gets flagged in their system and a kitchen manager ensures that an area is sanitized and that they use dedicated utensils/etc. All gluten-free food items will come out by the assigned server or the manager, never by another staff member. All gluten-free food items get approved by the kitchen manager as they leave the kitchen.

If you are ordering from the gluten-free menu they will bring gluten-free bread (seemed like just a hamburger bun) plus butter. I enjoyed all of the food I tried: Thai chicken lettuce wraps (same as the regular menu offering, but without the fried wontons and the dipping sauce that contains regular soy sauce), "black and bleu" strip steak chopped salad, and salted caramel creme brulee. All of it was great.

They have a large GF menu, but between my mom and I they brought out: a salad with a hidden crouton (my mom Will now be sick), a gluten filled potato dish we caught (manager came out and apologized and then fixed), and a gluten filled dessert (which I caught and they then fixed). Mom got her dinner after we all finished, and I’m getting my dessert after everyone finished.

Excellent food. Great GF roll/bun. Expansive GF menu. We ate in the bar area. I had a chicken sandwich with GF bun. My son had the Caesar salad and a burger with GF bun. Server was excellent. Knowledgeable staff. Unfortunately, fries are not gluten free because of cross contamination.

I've been here several times within the last month and the food is delicious and no issues. I've had the cheeseburger the gluten free bread and the appetizer Mexican drunken shrimp. Both servers were very knowledgeable of what I could and could not have.

Went here for Father's Day with my celiac husband. Our server was very knowledgeable about GF and their menu has lots of choices. They also bring gluten free bread which is the one my husband has tried. Husband still feels good today so there doesn't seem to have been any cross contamination.

While in the past we have had a great experience here, this weekend we had a HORRIBLE experience. My gluten free salad came with bread on it. In addition, a family member's (who is anaphylactic to tomatoes and we told the waitress this many times) sandwich came with a tomato on it and we only found out after he took a bite!!! The manager was most apologetic and we received a free meal, but it was a very scary experience.

Amazing!!!!

I went here for a family dinner recently and was really happy with the gluten free menu. SO many options! I had sea scallops and asparagus and jasmine rice and it was delicious!! Then I had the gluten free brownie and ice cream for desert which was incredible. Overall, super happy with my experience here.

When I was asking about ingredients, the waitress asked if I had allergies. I replied yes that I have celiac disease and must have gluten free (I wasn't aware of a special GF MENU). She DID NOT mention any special menu or suggestions. I also asked for just plain mashed potatoes and I got au graitin potatoes! Perhaps there needs to be more training of their servers!!!

Had the potabella mushroom and roasted red pepper on a gluten free bun, switched out mayo with avocado to make it veganish. Came with a side of fresh fruit. Highly recommend. A little pricy, but so nice to eat kind of normal.

Warm gluten free bread while you wait for your meal made my day. Got the burger which used the same bread so was a little too much of the same thing and tasted very salty for some reason but overall was good nonetheless. Had to go for the gf brownie dessert since I pretty much never get to have dessert at a restaurant...absolutely delicious. Ginger lemongrass tea is amazing too. The gf menu is beyond impressive. It doesn't just say which items on the regular menu are gluten free, but they actually make separate gf versions of many of the entrees. With such a massive gf menu I was surprised they didn't have a gf beer. Great experience overall.

Cannot explain the joy I felt when they brought out gluten free appetizer bread for me. A treat us celiacs never get. Lots of options, helpful servers, and good food!

Great experience! Server was knowledgeable, GF items were marked on the menu, and lots of options. They brought out a GF piece of bread when the brought the rest of the table bread prior to the meal, it was good. I had the Thai lettuce wraps (delicious) and a Parmesan crusted chicken (good, a little bland).

Starting the review off by saying I did not have a gluten reaction. The lettuce wraps were very good. They also brought out a gluten free bun instead of their regular bread for me. I also got one of the chicken dishes, I cannot remember which one. Mine was just ok. However, my husband got the gluten free beef tip risotto and we had it taken off the bill because it was so greasy!

I would give them another try because I did not get sick.

I went there today and I ordered the GF bread and ordered GF menu and my food came out with croutons on the salad and my sandwich on a regular bun. The manager who brought it to me just happened to walk by as I was questioning when they got GF croutons and I asked him if they were and he was like no and pointed out that my bun was not either and took it back and gave me my correct order. Glad I trusted my gut and double checked!
