Don't hesitate and go to fogo! The best meats around and they're gluten free, along with the rice, mashed potatoes, and cheese bread & it's all delicious. Staff is very knowledgeable on gluten free items and if someone happens to not be, they will go find the right person to provide the answers to your questions. Hands down my favorite restaurant of all time, lucky I'm able to eat here.

What a great experience! The food was excellent! The waiter, Alessandro, clearly explained what was and was not gluten free. They have wonderful cheese bread gluten free and all the meat you can eat. They also have a great salad/fruit bar. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone! This was great for my Celiac daughter and I as well as the rest of the family that isn’t GF!

Amazing experience!! Gave us the allergy menu so I could look over every item throughout the whole dinner. The bread was so good and I loved that almost everything there is gluten free! They were very knowledgeable and made sure to explain the ingredients in every item we got.

Breads were gluten free and almost all meats. Unfortunately the one chicken option was marinaded in beer. Still an excellent dining experience and they have a binder with all foods labeled for allergies

Hands down Celiac paradise. Slightly expensive but well worth it, even if you only get the salad bar. Don't be fooled, the salad bar has more than enough to keep you satisfied! They even have an allergy menu so you know what is "off limits."

The amount of food you can eat here is incredible. They have a GF menu, and everyone is very knowledgeable as well. It was amazing to have rolls at dinner, and I left very full.

Carnival for the Carnivores!!!! Everything is GF except chicken legs. Impeccable service, especially if you go before the dinner rush. Creme Brûlée is our favorite dessert! Go hungry and wear loose pants 😊

Fantastic place! The entire buffet is GF! All served carved meats are GF except the chicken legs. The food is fantastic and you can not stop eating the GF rolls at the table. The service is top notch. Expensive but worth it on a special occasion!

I couldn't write a review fast enough about this place just loved it!!! The manager was very aware of celiac and took me around the Buffett and showed me what I could and couldn't eat and then went through the meats with me so awesome. The food was fantastic worth every penny! If I ever find another Fongo de Chao on my travels I will eat there again. Recommend it to anyone who has celiac or who is gluten free:) I had no problems. ( I always wait until the next morning to write my reviews lol)

Waitress looked at me like I had 4 heads when I told her I had celiac, no knowledge about what is GF at the market bar but assured me the meat selections were all GF. The food and service were excellent, so the low rating is strictly for safety. Eat at your own risk.

Had a wonderful dinner last night. The server was very helpful mentioning things to avoid, and provided a book that contained all of the allergen information on all of their foods. Their website was also helpful, and gave information on gluten free options. I will definitely go back.

So good! Majority of the menu is gluten free. The croutons and cheese bread are gluten free. I have been here a few times and didn’t get sick or cross contaminated at all. When I asked the waiter about what is gluten free, they provided a list that detailed everything on the menu. We were so happy to find I could enjoy so much food. The food is pricey but worth it. I highly recommend for all my celiac/ gluten sensitive friends!

Servers were familiar with gluten and provided me with a gf menu! Most items are gluten free and the entire salad/market bar is gluten free. I also got a crème brûlée that was phenomenal. Everything was so tasty and the staff was very friendly!

All meats are gluten free! There is a separate bar with salads and other appetizer type foods, majority is gluten free. I suggest asking for a copy of the allergy list which is very comprehensive, not only gluten containing foods are listed but a number of other allergens. The food was very tasty! Highly recommended by a sensitive Celiac.
