I've eaten here twice before (once for brunch and once for dinner), both times with amazing service, Celiac safety knowledge, and food, so visited again about two weeks ago for brunch. This time our server was very knowledgeable and made sure to mark things as gluten free, however, the salad I had ordered, while it arrived with the gluten-allergy toothpick, turned out to contain farro. Unfortunately I realized a few bites in, and after much discussion back and forth with the kitchen and manager, that they had swapped the farro in for the quinoa when they ran out and not connected the dots that farro contains gluten. To be fair, the restaurant was extremely busy while we were there, but I took all the right steps. The server and manager apologized profusely for the mistake and promised to make it a learning opportunity for the kitchen staff, but I will not be returning again. Such a shame too since this is a Cameron Mitchell Restaurant Group spot and their restaurants typically go above and beyond to educate staff about allergies/intolerances/Celiac, but I no longer feel safe eating here.

Along with being gluten free, I have several other restrictions (following a low FODMAP diet) and the server noted all of my restrictions. The chef modified their sea bass and allowed me to sub my side options to ensure I could eat a full meal. My food was great and I did not get sick.

Was in Columbus visiting family. Went to Del Mar for Sunday brunch. Menu items were clearly labeled Gluten Free. Many gluten-free options. They said they tag any Allergan orders to prevent cross-contamination. Wonderful service! I had the shrimp ceviche and seven vegetable fried rice. My GF food was delicious! Everyone else who had regular (gluten) orders was very happy with their food as well.

Amazing food. Many gf offerings. You can eat like a normal person without removing the good stuff! Lobster roll was amazing. Wouldn’t have believed the bread was gf if my non gf friends didn’t look just a little different. The Hawaiian shaved ice and coconut dessert were amazing. My son's chocolate brownie sundae was good but kind of standard GF fare. Tuna Poke was also great. Very flavorful and texture of tuna was like butter.
