We’ve eaten here many times. My wife has celiacs so gluten free is very very important to us and we have never had an issue here. Good little bar, food is good. Atmosphere is real St. A

The stars are incorrect. I give this one star. I had the citrus salad and was badly glutened. This has been my favorite restaurant, but it is no longer safe to eat at. I question the cleanliness too as my daughter had two long hairs in her food. Sadly, I won’t risk this restaurant again and could not recommend it after The last experience.

Update: 11/2021 spoke to everyone I could speak to. Ate here again to give it another chance and got glutened again. Almost starting vomiting before I left the restaurant. Don’t get the biscuits and belly! The biscuits aren’t prepared celiac safe even though they will tell you they are.

Review from a local. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and I felt safe eating here. The food was very good. Although I’m thinking I got glutened here.

Excellent!! I got the n waffles which were so good! Also had the dips and chips. While the chips are made in the same fryer as everything, they bring out fresh veggies! The Garden Gimlet is an amazing drink! We ate here twice during our stay.

We had a wonderful dinner at the Floridian. The server was very knowledgeable about cross contamination (they have a shared fryer). The menu clearly indicates which items can be made gluten free. The food was delicious especially the biscuit and belly small plate! The GF brownie was a wonderful finish to a great meal!

Had a great lunch. Items on the menu were clearly marked and even a few of the kids menu items were able to be made GF. My daughter had a grilled cheese so good she asked to order a second one! The waitress was knowledgeable and helpful, answering questions, taking notes and double checking when the food arrived. It was a great experience.

I was a bit disappointed at first. After looking at the menu i got very excited they had so many GF options but when i arrived and starting asking questions they don’t have a dedicated fryer so a lot of the menu is gluten friendly and not celiac safe. So that was a bit of a bummer, but after i got over that the food that was celiac safe was delicious! Waiter was very knowledgeable about celiac and able to inform me of my options. Had GF biscuits that were amazing! (Can order just the biscuits!)

Food was eh. On the plus side, I had a great GF beer- Green’s Amber Ale. The salad dressing (rosemary Dijon) was also really good. The Cuban was underwhelming. It was served on Udi’s bread and didn’t really have much flavor. My hubby had the bahn mi (not gf) and it was OK, not amazing. Field pea soup was very good,. Overall, felt safe and didn’t get sick but food wasn’t that good.

This was one of the best restaurants I have been to. All of the food options are amazing and they are very understanding of celiacs. The only thing that isn’t celiac friendly is the fried food as it is not a dedicated fryer. The gluten free desert is also amazing and not the typical options.

I was so excited to try food from The Floridian from my recent trip to St. Augustine and I was a little underwhelmed. We ordered delivery, and the orders were not received accurately which was a bit of a bummer. I tried the N’waffles, and it was good, but not 5 star worthy in my opinion. The biscuits were very good though!

We had the biscuit & belly as an app and it was amazing. Cooked perfectly and a prime piece of meat, not greasy either. The GF biscuits were excellent. Although dense, it was soft and had that buttermilk taste that brings you back to your youth. The bourbon peach, honey, and Moo’s cheese paired fairly nice. Well done, Floridian. For our main, we shared the shrimp tacos. Generous portion and superior taste. The shrimp had a delicious marinade that wasn’t over powered by the pickled watermelon rind, cilantro, red onion, and Datil sauce. Lastly, we had the brownie for dessert. It was moist and flavorful. Definitely would return. Zero negative reaction.

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!
