    Five Horses must have changed something since the first batch of bad reviews. In the last year and a half, I’ve eaten here about 6 times and have never had a reaction. There was a moderately close call where the waiter didn’t know that the pork belly was fried and therefore not gluten free, but the chef recognized the error and modified my order accordingly. Plus, the servers are great, didn’t make me explain myself, and immediately knew what celiac disease implied. Great place.

    Lots of gluten free options. I had the fish tacos with corn tortillas. And gluten free beer. The server knew what dishes had cross contamination. The rest of my gluten eating family loved their meals too. Definitely recommend.

    I tried to order a burger but was told "making it gluten free" was sans bun, not a gluten free bun. Question the fried chicken labeled gluten free and was told it was a typo. The tots are listed as gluten free but are in a shared fryer. Don't trust them.

    Their menu items say GF on some or can be made GF on others. Servers have no idea what Celiac is- they insisted that MA standard is that they can use the same fryer because it kills the gluten. #1, you can't "kill" gluten, it's not alive. #2, unless they crank the fryer up to 600 degrees for 1/2hr (they don't/can't), it doesn't dissolve. They are NOT celiac friendly. If you must eat there, get the steak taco without the avocado sauce (eat at own risk), or the mezze plate (hummus) with veggies instead of pita. ::sigh:: when will all restaurants be educated on this disease!???!?

    Not really gluten free and wait staff was ill informed. Manager didn't get it either. Stay away.

    The food was good, but you are really limited to three of four choices on the menu. Really disappointed because there were so many other things that looked really good, just none of them were gluten free.

    gluten free = bok choy and brussel sprouts as your snack options. very few gluten free options left me disappointed... only 3 entree options. Either embrace your inner cow or pick somewhere else

    Ok so steak with scallion goat cheese mashed potatoes. Do I need to say more? Great food, great cocktails. The staff is so friendly and patient. It was delightful! (Oh and amazing gin cocktails if that's your thing, it's definitely mine!)

    This place bums me out because i like the atmosphere and i know they've got (or had) good chefs. Along w being celiac, I cant do dairy. The menu here clearly labels for allergens and the staff is knowledgeable. They arent either able or willing however, to attempt to accomodate their menu to meet different dietary needs. Basically i was left to eat a mound of quinoa, bok choy and baby carrots. All were fresh, but the "grazing plate" is boring and lacks flavor. This frustrated me and i havent been back in over a year. They had great wings i used to go for a lot, but were changed off the menu. Recommend for gluten sensitive/celiac...but not if have dairy or other issues as well.
