This was one of our local "safe" gluten free restaurants. Unfortunately, we recommended it to a dear friend needing GF food preparation. After clarifying menu items, they cooked her vegetables in the hot pasta water. She discovered this when a piece of spaghetti was served amongst her vegetables. I hope they retrain their staff on avoiding cross contamination.
Excellent GF menu. Roasted pear and chicken salad was fresh and delicious.
Well versed in gluten free dining along with great food!
Lovely decor and friendly staff, but for GF diners that is as far as it seems to go if you're looking for lunch.
The prices are high-end, and I hope the food is too, but you have to pay dinner prices for food at lunch. The staff admitted they are untrained and inexperienced serving GF diners.
The server suggested fried wonton strips and the manager came to check on us, but waited to tell me that the dressing I had chosen was not GF. She did quickly replace it. The new salad and dressing were excellent.
Doolitte's Woodfire Grill in Alexandria, MN could improve.
I love their GF menu it's full of delicious choices! They are very accommodating & asking what else they can to to serve you. My fav is balsamic sirloin skewers served with carmelized red onions and green beans on the appetizer section I add a sm Mediterranean salad and leave VERY satisfied ! A HUGE bonus is 1/2 price appetizer at happy hour. With that incentive I never hesitate to drop in! I feel pampered! Thanks to Doolittles in Alexandria MN
My daughter is celiac and though we had told our waiter multiple times that she needed a GF meal and he assured us that it was GF, it wasn’t. AFTER she ate it he told us it was not GF. And here’s the kicker - no one came out to apologize nor offer a discount. My daughter was sick for 2 months afterwards. We have not been back since and never will.
We came here for lunch today. It was really nice on the patio. I had the chicken wings for an app and they were good along with the blue cheese dressing. I ordered the raspberry pear salad and added chicken to it. It was pretty good but a bit too much dressing, so I would ask for it on the side. If you dont like rotisserie chicken or steak there are limited options. Our server was kind and knew the gluten free options and what was safe to eat. They have créme brulee for a gf dessert option.
Josh, the manager who assisted us was amazing. We were very clear that we had Celiac not an intolerance and that cross contamination was a concern. Josh sat with us, went through the menu and provided great options and substitutions to ensure no cc. He explained that everything is cooked in fresh pans but that anything grilled will run the risk of cc. He listened, found options and personally brought us the food. It was delicious and our family had a wonderful night out. The staff was seriously caring and wanting to ensure we had a great meal.
Please let them know ahead of time and visit with the manager. We enjoyed roasted chicken, pan seared scallops with amazing veggies and red potatoes. Delish!
