95 percent of the menu is gluten free. What a great experience. We had so many choices and the cheese bread was amazing. Not pricey if you consider how much you can eat here.
EXCELLENT! GF cheddar rolls without asking ... so good. Starts with a trip to the most extensive salad bar, which is a red wine pairing dream (wonderful meats, cheeses, fruits and salads).. then, when you are ready, they proceed to offer 16, yes 16, different protein offerings to your tableside. Incredible food and a fun experience. Attentive staff, highly highly recommended.
Ate here last summer. Just getting to the review. The wait staff isn't knowledgeable, but the kitchen seems very professional. Celiac safe, just without the confidence a good waiter/waitress provides in this area. Food is good. Also expensive.
Very nice place with good knowledge on GF topic by the boss. The Small cheese breads (pao de queijo) are very good and safe for me, had like 4 pcs. The meet is perfect, just avoid the chicken which is cooked in a beer sauce, so not GF. Wine list is extense. We had a very nice dinner here!
Contacted the HQ they assured they couod handle the gf request. It was a special occassion and I wanted to be sure. HQ told me to contact the manager, which I did before hand. Which he assured me they could handle. When I arrived and asked for the manager, he refused to see me. The waitress assured me they were able to handle a gluten free meal. I never saw her again and Half way in I was feeling ill asked for the check and they brought me a chocolate cake as a celebration for me. THEY BROUGHT CHOCOLATE CAKE TO A CELIAC THEY HAD ALREADY CONTAMINATED! Stay away is my advise.
Absolutely wonderful!!! So many options and the staff were very knowledgeable. I would give this place six stars if I had that option.
Excellent! Waiters very aware of gluten and the cheese bread - freshly baked for the table - is gluten free! Fantastic salad bar with the best fresh mozzarella balls I've had in a long time along with a candied spicy bacon which was out of this world with the meats! As someone else mentioned, this really is a gluten free dream and the fact the staff know about the allergy is professional and well received. My husband does not have a gluten allergy but also loved it here; we are from RI on vacation and this so far has been the best restaurant in Miami.
The gluten free bread, the manager walking me through each item at the salad bar, and the fact the steak is not premarinated and is fresh and pure. This place is a gluten free dream. Did I mention the bread?
Grest food, lots of options including croutons for the salad! The manager came immediately to the table and helped me go through the options which are many, also told me they are becoming completely GF next month as they are going to take off the menu GF dishes. Good newss!
Best gluten free meal I've ever had. staff were wonderfully accommodating. cheese bread to die for. bravo.
Wow, this place is great. I told my server about my allergy and a manager came to talk to me about what my options were and walked me around the salad bar to point out what to avoid there as well. The only meat you have to avoid is the chicken. Most of the salad bar is okay too except for the obvious stuff — croutons, pasta, etc. The entire experience was amazing. The staff is really attentive and nice. The food was delicious and so was the wine. Well worth the price.
Manager very friendly and showed my wife and I all the GF food. Kinda pricey but expected for vacation spot.
On vacation in Miami and was super nervous about eating out (extremely gluten sensitive which makes traveling stressful) so I called ahead as I always do to double check & was informed that the manager would greet us when we arrived and explain all of my GF options. He did just that and to my delight on top of the impeccable service & wonderful atmosphere, I was able to eat almost everything on the menu with the exception of a few items. I was thrilled to have so many options and especially enjoyed the "cheese bread" made of all GF ingredients yet delicious as can be. You know, so good it feels scary to eat it!! The staff were all very knowledgable & even made some of the otherwise gluten containing meats gluten free just for me so I could try them :) I can honestly say that the only downside was feeling full WAY to soon!! The price is high but worth every penny for the food & the ability to truly relax and enjoy a nice meal out again!!!
Everything at the buffet bar is GF- even the croutons in the Caesar salad! The only thing that has gluten is a basket of Italian bread and it is off on a different table. If you ask for the show-stopping sweet and spicy bacon, you can have them bring you a plate from the kitchen so it is not cc with the bread that’s the only thing you have to ask for. The bread basket you get on the table is GF, the polenta is GF. Celiac heaven. Yum.
They always know what is safe and what is not (and it's no trouble to ask), and we've never had an issue with cross-contamination. Majority of the food is GF. Great service, delicious food. I'm vegetarian and I don't mind at all when carnivore DH wants to go here - the "salad" bar is to die for.
Pros: Loved being able to eat with everyone else without having to wait! Lots to eat! All the table platters are GF on a normal basis - Brazi bites are delicious and can be purchased in the freezer section of your grocery store - they are naturally GF and everyone at our table loved them. Cons: There are two areas of concern. One is the dinner roll section of the salad bar which is separated from the rest of the buffet. Not hard to avoid. Second is a platter of chicken/sausage that roams around alongside the meats. You have to be vigilant to make sure it’s not added to your plate when you’re receiving meat. It felt very stressful to me. Once I figured out what I was looking for it wasn’t so bad. The sausage is spiraled on the skewer so that waiter stands out from the rest. But I would have enjoyed the experience much more if I wasn’t constantly on guard for the beer battered chicken to accidentally land on my plate.
We had dinner here recently and noted a gluten allergy on the reservation. Our server was aware of this when we sat down and explained that the only chicken legs were off limits from the meat offerings as they are marinated in beer. Everything else, as well as the salad bar, was safe. Were were given some small bread rolls which are naturally gluten free since they are made with cheese and tapioca. The meal also comes with mashed potatoes, polenta fries and fried plantains. I asked if they used a shared fryer and the manager came over to confirm that they do not fry any gluten items in the fryer. Food was very good. The lamb options were incredible. Some cuts were a little tough, so start with small tastes and then settle on the best options. Salad bar had a mound of candies bacon which was addictive. I did see what I believe to be croutons near some of the salad options, so keep in mind some things could have some cc. I had no reactions other than being uncomfortably full.
The staff was knowledgeable about what was gluten-free. They had a large salad bar. There was bread but it was on a separate area where the rice and beans were. All the rotisserie meats were gluten-free except for the chicken legs and the sausages. I was told the sausages were made offsite and did not have any gluten ingredients but they couldn’t guarantee it so I did not have any just in case. I have not had any ill effects after 14 hours so I don’t think I got cross contaminated! I plan to take my dad here for his birthday in May
Excellent options for gluten free customers, unfortunately the pork, chicken, and lamb options were not gluten free today, but everything else was including the appetizers! Watch out for cross contamination at the salad bar/appetizer bar. The bread at the salad bar is not gluten free. This place was excellent on letting us know what’s gluten free and what’s not. They even brought us a creme brûlée for our anniversary!
Manager came out and talked to us about what we can and cannot have. Could eat pretty much everything except for the chicken thighs. Manager told the staff when cutting the meat for us to bring a clean knife to cut with. We could even eat the Cheese bread! One of the places where I feel I don’t need to worry about what I’m eating!
Most meats are gluten free except for some chicken which is marinated in beer. Brazilian cheese bread is delicious and gluten free (made with cassava flour). Some locations have an allergy menu that is very detailed. Mashed potatoes and rice is also gluten free. Almost everything is gluten free. Great experience, but a little pricy
When checked with the hostess, she informed us everything is GF except the baguette bread, and chicken leg marinade. Even the little bread things they serve you as an appetizer if GF. Great place to eat. Come hungry.
Ah...... Brazilian cheese bread! Everything was GF except one plate of bread (sep from the cheese bread). Everything was delicious but not quite up to par with the steakhouses in São Paulo (not expecting it to be). We went for brunch and were grateful for some other options.
The waiter came by with a list of everything that was NOT gluten free (mashed potatoes, the chicken, Italian bread and several items from the bar). Otherwise everything else is gluten free - just double check!! They bring around gf bread, bananas, and these fry like things. All the meats they bring around are gf with exception to the chicken (tho I saw several times where they brought a skewer of chicken and beef and were touching each other so I just stayed away from that beef option as well).
I specified my gluten allergy to the waitress, she said All the meats except the chicken would be safe for me to eat. Personally I am highly sensitive to cross contamination and even after specifying this, she said all the other meats would be ok, however the Parmesan encrusted pork and the sausages are both prone to cross contamination. I got glutened here, so I would recommend either staying away from these foods or making it very very clear that you can’t have any cross contamination.
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.
Fogo is a great chain for Celiacs. Make sure to mention your condition to the host(ess) who will ask that the floor manager give you a tour around the salad bar to show you what to avoid. Everything that comes to the table (via the gauchos serving meats and via your waiter) are gluten free except: the chicken, the sausage, and the parmesan crusted pork due to cross contamination potential. So, please do go and eat all of the Brazilian cheese bread you can fit.
There are only two things in the restaurant with gluten: beer marinated chicken, and bread they don’t bring to your table and keep segregated from the veggie/salad bar. You’d think that would be enough, but they also have warm cassava flour and cheese rolls that are simply. AMAZING. The only downside? $$$$$
Carnivore’s delight. Tried this restaurant while visiting Boston. A good place to go when you’re hungry! Majority of the menu is gluten free. The manager came over and spoke with us about our their practices and what was not safe. Staff seemed to have conflicting opinions on the grilled zucchini’s status so we steered clear of it.
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
I’ve been there twice and it’s always amazing! The meats are delicious! I love the variety of fresh fruit, salads, pickles and cheeses in their Market Place bar. The seasonal soup is delicious! And the tiny puffed tapioca bread melts in your mouth - so delicious! The service is top notch and the staff are knowledgeable. The papaya cream dessert is deliciously decadent! Just be careful to stop eating before you are too full! Great place for celebrating a special occasion like Mother’s Day.
I was super impressed! I made a reservation online and mentioned my celiac disease and my other food allergies. Within 24 hours of making the reservation I received an email with a full allergen list for my reference. When I arrived the manager came over and brought the list and went through every item they serve to ensure I knew exactly what I could and couldn’t eat. They even offered to prepare special items to meet my needs. It was an amazing experience and excellent food!!!
Almost everything gluten free The only thing containing gluten is French bread which was separated from the buffet and therefore not high risk of cross-contamination. My daughter did not have any reactions and his supersensitive. The salad bar lunch is a great deal $15 for a beautiful salad buffet. If you choose to have the meat courses be prepared for an expensive meal. My son did say he thought it was the best meat he ever had. Cheese bread so good
Ate here last night for my husband's birthday. He has celiac and it was great that almost everything on the menu is safe for him to eat...including the yummy bread they bring. The salad bar was amazing (i skipped the meat and just had this) and full of lots of interesting items. We each had a cocktail and a glass of wine. Both good but the drinks are a little on the pricey side for the suburbs. The staff was very knowledgeable about which items weren't GF and if they weren't 100% sure they went into the kitchen to ask. They also gave my husband a complimentary dessert for his birthday. it is expensive, so it is more of a special occasion kind if place but we will return.
I had an excellent meal last night! The salad bar is unreal in the offerings they have (cheeses, smoked salmon, beautiful vegetables, olives...I could go on) & most everything is GF. They have some crackers or bread or something off to the side that isn't GF but I didn't even pay attention to that because I was in salad bar heaven. The meats were great too. They clearly stated that the only meats that aren't GF are the chicken legs and the sausage, which they serve together, so there wasn't worry of contamination. But, I gotta say my favorite part of the meal was the naturally gluten free Paõ De Queijo (cheese bread!!) that they have at the table. I ate 5, during a business dinner, and I'm not even sorry. I definitely plan on going back!
We have multiple food allergies in our family in addition to celiac. The food manager came to our table himself and gave us a highlighted list to make our selections easier. He brought my daughter specific food she could eat so she wouldn't feel left out, and He also came to check on us multiple times thru the meal and happily answered all of our questions with a smile. Amazing service, fabulous food, and completely worth the price!
I went last night for the first time. when I asked if they are gluten free, she said mostly. And told me a few things. She said she would send a manager out to give me a more complete list. so I waited. after about 5 min I decided I could figure it out. after I finished my first plate the manager comes over to let me know that they are 95% gluten free! unfortunately I ate one of the items that are not. that's my luck. I think if the waitress would have known, or the manager had come sooner... but just so you know. don't eat the Cesar salad dressing. ugh
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."
As soon as I said I was gf, they sent the manager over to talk about what I could and could not have. She was very knowledgeable and even offered to grab salad bar items for me from the back to avoid cc. She even had several items cooked just for me as they were not readily available. Amazing experience, will be back!
Delicious!! Almost everything is gf except chicken legs ... if you ask for sausages from the back I will bring them out where they haven’t touched the chicken legs. Also lots of choices that are dairy free, including soup that we never get (this one is made with coconut milk). Excellent service and excellent food. Highly recommend!
