I went to Del Friscos for the first time this year on my birthday because I was excited about their gf menu. Unfortunately, despite ordering only items marked gf and suggested by our server (steak, mashed potatoes, brussel sprouts, bacon appetizer) my food was contaminated and I was extremely sick after leaving the restaurant. Some red flags from the overall from the experience: while our waiter was cutting into our steak, he suddenly stopped and asked if butter was okay (how is their staff so poorly trained that they don’t know butter is gluten free; also why was he asking me this question he had already brought over our prepared food); also, my fiancé called after we realized I was sick and the manager on the phone was not apologetic at all. She asked if I had ordered a beer at the bar before sitting down for dinner as “beer is not gluten free.” As someone who has been managing celiac for most of my life, I found it offense when the manager started questioning if I had consumed products that are obviously (to anyone with celiac) not gluten free.

Unfortunately got sick from eating the Filet Mignon (marked Gluten Free on the menu). I felt sick almost immediately after I finished eating. It pains me to write this review, as I’ve enjoyed this restaurant prior to being diagnosed, but it doesn’t seem like the kitchen/staff takes the necessary measures to avoid cross contamination.

Kinda mad that I read here that they have gluten free bread. I asked my survey if they had a gluten free menu and she just told me what options I could have and didn't bring out any gf bread...had to suffer watching the entire table eat all the bread, not nice Del Friscos!!!

On the bright side the filet minion was delicious and the the sides were delightful, as expected for their brand. Just mad now that they didn't offer me any bread.

Gluten free menu includes all steaks and 5 or 6 side dishes. The gluten free baguette brought to the table before the meal was one of the best gluten free breads I've ever had. They buy their bread from the Something Sweet Without Wheat Bakery. When I told the waiter how good it was he came back with an extra frozen baguette for me to take home. Service and food is great and Del Friscos is highly recommended if you are looking for the steak house experience.

Our server was helpful she seemed to truly care about finding gf options for me, we notified ahead that I needed GF options. Our menus showed vegan and gluten free (these don't show online). I was brought GF bread and the server was very helpful in choosing sides and menu items.

The menu clearly had GF marked next to gluten-free items. Our server was very knowledgeable and understanding when we visited here with our children, 2 of which have celiac disease. We were also served a hot Udi’s French baguette, which my kids LOVED, since it’s such a rarity to get gluten-free bread at a restaurant.

We ordered a steak salad which tested GF on a Nima sensor and GF French fries. The fries tested a strong positive on a Nima sensor. Exercise caution in what you order.
