    I had the chicken with ham and Swiss. It was amazing! The chef worked with my allergies. He personally came out to figure out what I could eat. I can have most everything on the menu that is gluten, high fructose corn syrup free and tree nut free.

    Go to this place. As we say in MN- holy cow! This place is worth a stop. Both the gluten free food as well as the non gluten free options. Shrimp scampi (GF) was very good. The oyster PO boy (not GF) was also very good.

    Delicious!!! If only the fries were gluten free... other than that, this place is perfect. So many choices, knowledgeable about celiacs, and genuinely want to make a good experience for you. PS, the mac n cheese is AMAZING

    I'd love to give this 5 stars, but not yet. We'll go back today for another attempt. The chef came out and we had a great talk about what he could make for me--pretty much anything! It did take some time as he had to make mine special, but I don't mind that. The stuffed mushrooms were really good, the leftover soup was good but way too salty according to my husband. I had shrimp scampi. The shrimp was perfectly cooked and well seasoned, but the dish was otherwise a bit bland. Maybe the sauce didn't emulsify properly and therefore didn't cling to the pasta like it should? Still, it was a good experience, but spendy for what we got. Good enough to try again before we leave town.

    Excellent food and personalized service. The chef talked with us and worked with our individual needs. He even cooked my husband's steak just the way he likes it- very rare! All the staff were friendly and accommodating. They all were sensitive to gluten free and other dietary restrictions. The wines we had were good too.

    The chef met me at my table to take my order. Once I expressed my desire for gluten free he was more than willing to adjust any recipe to meet my needs! Very friendly! He also warned me that it would take slightly longer as he couldn't use pre prepared items like noodles. That's fine with me! Fresh is worth the wait!!!

    Farm to table restaurant. The staff can tell you what is in everything and work with you. One of the chefs came out and went over everything again after the waiter.
