The staff was not very reassuring about preventing cross contamination and I should have just left and not ordered anything. I got a greens bowl with chicken and the ginger sauce and had a mild-moderate gluten reaction 2 hrs later. Some locations may be safe, but this one did not adequately train staff.

Now that CoreLife has naan (wheat) tacos, there are major issues with cross contamination. Avoid if you have celiac disease.

Everything is gluten free (except an optional side of bread which is kept near the register away from the line). No danger of cross contamination! I had the tuna poke fire bowl and it was SPICY and delicious and felt very nourishing. Wish I could have tried everything on the menu! It felt like a Panera, but for Celiacs!

Love this place. I am Celiac and very sensitive to cross contamination. Eaten here several times and have never had any issues. Only gluten in restaurant is the bread at the end of the line.

Dedicated gluten free facility! The only thing not gluten free is a covered bread basket they have at the end of the line by the cash register and they ask if you want a piece of bread. One of our favorite restaurants!!

I eat here all the time. They are very careful with gluten and I’ve never been disappointed or sick from their healthy, tasty foods. 95% of their offerings are gluten free. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Just left the Wolf Rd. location, where we watched an employee pick up naan bread and then ingredients with her same gloved hands, instead of using utensils. We informed her that those ingredients were now contaminated. She said she had no idea and that they do that every evening.

We requested to speak with a manager to ask that the employee be retrained. The employee that made the food unsafe was the only supervisor on duty.

I am pretty sure my meal Is GF as I’m sat here eating it but it took a bit of time to feel confident about that. I think some additional employee training is needed especially when the notices say the food is Gf and to let them know about allergies. The person waiting on me was not knowledgable at all so I needed to speak with a few more employees in order to feel comfortable. I was told that pretty much everything on the menu is GF except the bread and wheat taco shells - which is great - BUT odd that some things are specifically marked Gf and other things, which are apparently GF, are not marked GF. A big part of enjoying my meal is the confidence that it won’t make me poorly.

Wonderful experience. Everything is gluten free except wraps and bread which are isolated from all other food.

Hands were washed. Gloves were changed. See pic below of mac and cheese and bowl with tofu avacado greens and fixings. Absolutely delicious! Will return again and again. I saw prior review. Worse scenario when order tell them gluten free celiac, remind them to change gloves
