The service and food were excellent. I told them I was gluten free and pork free and my husband wanted his meat well done. The printed list showing all of the food with the allergens was an extra special touch. They accommodated all of our requests easily and one manager came to the table to make sure we were happy and another manager helped me with the Market table which has a huge array of different cold foods. The drinks all the way to the dessert, they made us feel special with their attention to detail. It's expensive, but worth it to splurge every once in a while so I would definitely go back.

My daughter and I are celiac. We had a great experience. The food was delicious and the staff was super knowledgeable. They printed a list of gluten free items which was most of the menu. I highly recommend it.

This place is delicious and super friendly. They brought me an entire stapled packet to show all of the allergens and the waitress went over it with me in detail which was great. Super pumped I can still go here 😍

There’s such a large variety of items here, there’s plenty that’s gluten free, though you have to ask about specific things but the servers will go and double check with the kitchen. The dinner rolls they serve are gluten free, as the Brazilians use tapioca flour and cheese to make puffy little popover type breads. All and all delicious and safe if you are vigilant

Almost everything is gluten free! The manager came to our table to go over what was gluten free. We also had two lactose intolerant family members so they made the polenta without cheese. So many options including several desserts. The meats are just to die for! It is ridiculously expensive but incredible dining experience.

Waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful. All meats except chicken are gf although I would be wary of the sausage. They bring it around with the chicken (so they touch) but they were able to bring it to me separately when I asked. All side dishes are gf and are so so so delicious. Salad bar always has the risk of cross contamination due to clumsy people but I found it fairly clean. Besides, who can pass up a whole plate of prosciutto and cheeses?

Most of the meats are gluten-free, and the little rolls they bring to the table are naturally gf. Most of the servers know all of the things that are safe and not. If they are unsure, the manager will definitely know. We’ve had several meals at this location, and all have been amazing with no reactions.

Almost all of the salad bar is gluten free and all meats except one or two were gluten free! Our waitress was very knowledgeable and explained what dishes were not gluten free. It is my fiancee’s favorite restaurant (celiac, highly sensitive to cross contamination).

Very good experience. Cheese bread for appetizer, everything in salad bar was gluten free except for the bread. Croutons for salad were made from the cheese bread. Mashed potatoes they bring to the table is gluten free. All meats were gluten free except drumsticks.
