High tea was amazing!! No trouble with gluten free at all!
One of the best teas we've had and we've done London and Oxford. Great atmosphere and service. Food is delicious. Be warned, though, it's a bit pricey!
We had dinner in the Bengal Lounge. When we arrived the host told us the menu included GF items and to ask as many dishes on the menu can be altered to be GF. Our waiter, Lorne, was very knowledgable about everything gluten free. I sort of had an idea of what I felt like in mind so he allowed me to order whatever I wanted based very loosely off the menu. The chef made it happen with great success: grilled salmon (well seasoned w just salt and pepper), really yummy whipped/mashed potatoes and freshly steamed broccoli. We came here to celebrate my Mom's 60th birthday and he even made sure the dessert he brought out (with her song) was GF! The Fairmont as a company is very good about all types of food allergies, which makes traveling A LOT easier.
We had the high tea. They have a gluten free version that includes finger sandwiches, a scone biscuit that was incredible, and assorted pastry desserts. It was outstanding. We also noticed that their other restaurants listed gluten free options on their menu. The high tea was fabulous and a real treat for celiacs. We did not feel deprived at all!!!
