There were several GF options. Our waitress flagged our order so it would be handled with care. The manager even stopped by our table to let us know the kitchen was aware we were GF and handling it as needed. It was very reassuring to feel they were so on top of things. The food was delicious. Great experience. Will go back for sure!

This restaurant had a separate gf menu with a wide range of options. They also let us know that they have a process in place to ensure that there was no cross contamination with non-gf food. The waitstaff was very helpful and polite and did not make us feel like asking for gf was a burden or a problem. The food was fantastic and was well worth the price. Will definitely being going back.

Had a great waitress, Mary, for lunch. She took time to listen, and made sure to notify the manager. He checked the meal before it came out (we were seated near the kitchen so I could see them) and even made sure they kept the dairy separate until they got to the table since I hadn't ordered anything that had obvious diary.

The menu was more limited than their regular menu (no burgers, chicken, or appetizers/soup) but great salads, steaks and seafood choices and the Java ribs were amazing! Food was delivered by the waitress and the manager. I felt safe and did not get glutened. Looking forward to a return visit!

My husband and I had been to a Firebirds Wood Fired Grill in the DC area and it had been a good experience so we decided to try this location while on vacation in South Florida. The menu was much the same as the DC location. Gluten free was marked on their main menu and the server seemed knowledgeable. I ordered the Striped Bass dish and the manager came out to let me know that the ancient grains portion of the dish was not gluten free. I requested they changed the grains out with mashed potatoes. It came out with the mashed potatoes and looked safe. Everything tasted good and seemed great. I finished my meal less than an hour ago so will update review if I end up having a reaction.

Celiac I was very impressed by how serious Firebirds was about food intolerances and allergies. When I asked the waitress about gluten free and dairy free option, she went to get the manager, who was very knowledgeable. The manager, in turn, went to talk to the chef twice to verify that both ingredients and cross-contamination opportunities were address. I felt safe eating here. I had the salmon salad with salt and pepper for seasoning, without the pecans (which had gluten). It was very good. The service was also good, despite the crowded restaurant.

I talked with the waiter about my allergies. He did a great job with my accommodations. But something was amiss as I started feeling bloated before I finished the meal. The evening didn't end well... thinking cross CONTAMINATION. the food was delish. I had grilled salmon df/gf. Steamed veggies and salad with 3 choices of df/gf dressing and water...

Have SERIOUS celiac and super sensitive for cross-contamination. Menu items are clearly marked for gluten. Food is great and have never had any problems.

Menu items are marked with a GF icon that indicated the dish “may be ordered gluten free.” Only one of the two drink menus included the GF symbols. I ordered a blackberry margarita and asked our server to confirm with the bar that it was in fact gluten free. When he brought our drinks out he did not follow up at all. Being that I was out with my bf’s family, didn’t want to make a scene, and knew the drink should be GF naturally, I decided to let it go.

For dinner I ordered the striped bass, served with a key lime butter sauce, over a rice pilaf and asparagus. This was marked with the GF symbol, and I reiterated to our server that I had celiac, and said “I see this is marked with the ‘may be’ GF symbol — can you just confirm that it will be?” His response was “oh yes they take gluten free very seriously, they will change their gloves.” Unclear whether it was the drink, food or both, but by the time we left the restaurant I was already feeling sick and continued to feel it through the night.

Personally would not feel safe eating here again, which is a shame as I know this is the family’s favorite restaurant to eat at.
