This is the second time we went to this restaurant and it still is very good. Very sensitive to gluten and had no reaction both times. Presentation is great as well! If you are in St Augustine I recommend you make this stop. It is great for gluten free/celiacs and non GF alike.

I’ve had the pleasure of eating here twice, now and the food is amazing with many celiac friendly options. I recommend the biscuits and belly. The staff is very knowledgeable about celiacs and are cautious. Again, the food, is divine. And they even have desserts!

Fabulous lunch here. Hannah was very Celiac / gluten intolerant knowledgeable and had excellent recommendations. Owner/Chef is gluten intolerant and the menu and Staff knowledgeability and helpfulness reflect that. GF Bloody Marys, the shrimp ‘n grits was wonderful and taking 2 GF desserts home for later!! Hannah even packed the dessert whipped cream on ice for me. My friend who is not GF loved her Bay Of Pigs sandwich, too. We will definitely be back! My new favorite place.

Not to many options on the menu but what I ordered was the absolute best sandwich. I ordered the spicy melt GF sandwich. It was not spicy to me but best fish sandwich I have ever had. I’m not kidding.

The Floridian was a wonderful restaurant with knowledgeable staff. I was the only gf eater in my family but everyone thoroughly enjoyed their lunch choices and remarked how they felt like they made better food choices. I had a citrus beet salad and added grilled shrimp and topped it off with a hard cider. We sat outside in an area shaded by a porch and lush vegetation. We will definitely be back!

Best experience! They had so many options not available at other restaurants including gluten free amber ale and several ciders. We enjoyed he biscuits and belly as well as a delicious risotto style meal. They had three different gluten free options for desserts. The salted caramel chocolate brownie was enjoyed by everyone at the table. I am the only gf in the family and no one else noticed a difference. The taste and texture of everything was on point. The outdoor seating area was relaxing and quaint.

My daughter and I ate there for lunch the other day and I wish this place was closer to home! They have gluten-free bread, so their sandwiches can easily be made GF and they even have a gluten-free biscuit!! Biscuits were one of the few things I was *sure* I'd never be able to have again after my celiac diagnosis... but holy cow, the pork belly on the biscuit was amazing and delicious. They list it on small plates, but I had it for my lunch and I was stuffed. Honestly, it was so good, you would never know it was GF. Next time I'm in town, this is definitely on my restaurant list!

My partner and I ate here while on a trip to Jacksonville, and we were blown away by the quality of the food and how careful they were of my celiac! The server was very knowledgeable and quickly pointed out the specials that were and were not celiac-friendly (no GF fryer meant even seemingly GF foods were off-limits), but that did not mean our menu felt limited! We arrived quite hungry and enjoyed many delicious and unusual Southern dishes, all GF - pickled shrimp, pork belly with GF biscuit (one of the best items on the menu for sure!), pulled pork and waffles (amazing - could not tell the waffle was GF, but it was!), and maque choux (similar to a corn and rice risotto - not quite traditional, but amazingly delicious). We were stuffed, but we took home two desserts for later, just because the food was amazing! Great service, amazing food, highly recommend!

A friend of my is sensitive to a lot of food and recommended we eat here. I am gluten sensitive and get sicker than my partner who is celiac. We had the waffles and pork, and the pork belly and biscuit. It was amazing! We did not get sick at all. Even walked around St. Augustine all day the next day because we felt good.

If you have celiacs do not eat here!! I had high expectations from the reviews but a horrible experience. I got glutened BAD, my guess was from the server who thought something was GF that wasn’t (salad dressing? The special dessert? ). The menu is clearly marked so I’m not sure what happened but this is the worst glutening I have had in years! Also, I ordered my kids burgers medium and they came with the inside being completely raw. We sent it back but nothing so much as a heartfelt apology and no offer to comp the items. The place is cute and we had high expectations but others be forewarned!

We went to the Floridian one night and I was very pleased. I had pork and waffles and I couldn’t believe that the waffles were gluten free. They were delicious. We had a big group and it was pretty clouded so next time I’m going to definitely make a reservation. Overall good food and just make sure to reserve a table.

We ate here twice while vacationing in St Augustine and couldn’t have enjoyed it more. The biscuits & belly, ‘n waffles, and shrimp & sausage dishes were to die for. Both waitresses we had were attentive and knowledgeable. I have a yeast allergy in addition to celiac and they were on top of it. Garden gimlet cocktail was great too!

We were informed the owner/ chef is Celiac. We had some very different and creative menu options. The Biscuits and belly was to die for. My non-GM has been absolutely loved it. We had the brisket tacos which were fantastic. They even had a gluten-free dessert to finish it off. We will go here every time we go to Saint Augustine! So many other things to try.

One of the best meals I’ve ever had in my life. The gluten free biscuit and belly was phenomenal. Best biscuit I’ve ever had. Then had the ‘N Waffles. OMG! Divine! Finished the night off with a slice of red velvet cake. Couldn’t have been better. I’d go back to St. Augustine just to come here again!

Went to St. Augustine over Spring break, and went here for lunch based on reviews. All of us ordered gf. Celiac son loved his beef burger on gf bun! Our food was good too, their soup of the day- roasted tomatoes and veg..was delicious and filling. Our server perfectly understood our request, and the food was brought to the table by another kind gentleman, who repeated that everything on the tray was completely gf. and yes..we had no tummy issues after so all good :)

I had the biscuit and pork belly. It was delicious. Literally one of the best gf meals I’ve had. They made my celiac kid a gf grilled cheese on UdI’s bread (even though it’s not on the menu) and served it with sliced apples. I also enjoyed the pecan bar for dessert. Don’t visit St. Augustine without stopping here for a meal or ordering something to go!

Must-eat in St. Augustine! my wife and I shared biscuits and pork belly as an appetizer. If I ordered 4 of those for our whole meal, it would be 5 stars. Amazing flavor. Then, I had steak frites and she had shredded pork waffles. Both fantastic. We split the pecan bar for dessert and went home happy as hell. Thank you!
