I was pleasantly surprised by this place. The food was delicious and no worries about gluten. They do offer a slice of bread that is not gluten free but it is kept separate from the other food.

I love this place! Fast, fresh and healthy. No concerns of cross contamination. Bread is given with most meals but its at the end of the line so no concerns there. Lots of yummy drink choices too.

They have gluten free falafel!!! The rice bowls are the best. A lot of food and very flavorful. My favorites are the flank steak and Korean bowls. Everything is made fresh!

Everything on the menu is gf which is amazing! I love their salmon power bowl and now make it at home. The reason why I give it a 4 instead of 5 is I found the soup and the kale Caesar to be bland. Also, once you order drink with your meal it’s a bit pricey. Lastly, pay attention to the calories. Some of the items “look” healthy, but by the time you add dressing you can be eating nearly 1,000 calories for one “healthy” meal! However I do like the fresh options.

This place is like heaven to me! Being a gluten free vegetarian it's very hard to find someplace to eat that has options. Everything here is gluten free and the staff is great. The food--AMAZING!

Amazing! Gluten is only in bread at the end of the salad line and is made off-site. They take extra special care with allergies and are super helpful. Food is fantastic and non-GMO and no antibiotics etc. in meat. Will be eating here again and again and again. Prices are good as well.

I ordered Greek chicken bowl w/quinoa. Did not like the taste. Will not eat here again! No problems w/gluten though.

LOVE this establishment! I've had great experiences every time I've eaten here! The space is clean, the staff is friendly, and the food is top-notch! I fall into the 'slight gluten sensitive' category and have always felt good after eating here. I view food as fuel and feel full, satisfied, and even energized after consuming food from CoreLife. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough!

It was my first time eating there, all the reviews were great and I’ve been recommended by others with celiacs but they haven’t been there for a while. I was cross contaminate after stating my sensitivity and I threw up in the parking lot, received the worst bloating and when I called to figure out what happened they were only rude. Stated everything but the bread was gluten free and didn’t care that they made me ill.

CoreLife is one of the safest restaurants for those with gluten allergies/sensitivities. As long as you tell them you have a gluten allergy (or any food allergy/sensitivity) when ordering. They have special protocols for handling the food. Gloves are changed and the manager will make the entire bowl to assure there is no cross contamination. All there food is fresh and made in house, so they know there is no preparation around any gluten. The entire menu is gluten free, except the flour tortillas and naan bread for tacos, which is kept separate from other food. You can however, still get tacos and do the lettuce wraps! There’s a slice of bread, upon request only, that is kept in a bread box, off the line. They even have a dedicated color coded cutting board and bread knife that is only allowed to be used for cutting bread away from any other prepped food.

I'm really bummed. This place was really special to me because it was the only place I could go to where I knew I could order almost anything (but the tuna due to external cross contact). They recently added naan to the line. I watched someone contaminate the whole line by touching individual tongs to the naan then place them back in the various ingredients. I asked the manager about this and she said "there is nothing I can do about it, everything on this half is contaminated ". That basically leaves maybe the soup as safe? Based on the response I wouldn't feel safe eating anything at this point after observing their technique. The gluten has been placed dead center in the line and the new employees don't seem to understand. When they first opened everyone seemed really informed and considerate. Super disappointed.
