They were very helpful and knew about celiac. They said to stay away from the chicken legs and sausage. Sausage doesn’t have gluten but could be cross contaminated because it touches the chicken. Everything else was gluten free. Very yummy!

Great place! Left stuffed!

10/19: ate here again and had a wonderful experience! Highly recommend!

This was our favorite restaurant on our recent trip to DC. We actually ate there twice. It is expensive but worth every penny. Since we are GF and DF there were only 3 meats we could not have: crusted pork loin, chicken legs, and the sausage. There were probably at least 10 other meats we could eat and they were so delicious. They also brought out polenta with no parmesan on it for us. And they walked us through the salad buffet and explained what was safe and what was not safe. You will definitely be stuffed and really enjoy your experience - highly recommend.

Only 3 dinner items - French bread (kept at a side table separate from the salad bar) and chicken legs & pork sausage (both prepared in a separate area in the kitchen) - contain gluten! It was a great discovery since my family loved this restaurant pre-diagnosis. A number of desserts have gluten, but there’s never room for dessert anyway. If you’re looking for something sweet and still have room, order the caramelized bananas. Knowledge staff, yummy food, no reaction.

Staff was very knowledgeable and we had an amazing meal with no reactions. The manager even brought out the allergen list just to make sure I knew of any possible issues. Highly recommend

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.

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

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!

This is a great stop for dinner!! There are more items to eat then not for a Celiac like myself! The salad bar was fresh and delicious, but that is not all! The cheese rolls and plantains weRe awesome!! I could eat twenty of these rolls. I loved all the beef served at the table as well. Feel free to openly mention that you cannot have gluten and they will tell you what you cannot eat. Enjoy:)

A manager will come to speak to you about the GF options, but it's almost unnecessary because everything but the obvious breads and 3/12 or so meats is gluten free. And did I mention the GF cheesy bread? It's pricey, but 100% worth every penny for the amazing selection!

Probably the best meal I've ever had. Most options are gluten free, many are dairy too. They were extremely accommodating, serving my table's polenta fries without the parmesan and walking us through the gluten and dairy free meats. It was expensive, but it was 100% worth it. It is all-you-can eat and very high quality.

My family and I loved this place. I was pleasantly surprised when a server explained to me only a few items there are not gluten free. He was very knowledgable and told me every item that I could not eat. 1st time since I went gluten free that I didn't worry while eating out. Food was amazing and service was top notch. Perfect dining experience

Most awesome meal since becoming gluten free. We were touring Washington DC and looking for someplace to eat dinner. My husband was reluctant because of price range, but after eating said it was fantastic and he would recommend it. I loved that most of the food they serve is gf and I wasn't limited to a very few menu choices.

Highly recommend. All of their entrees are gf with the exception of the chicken wings and sausage, they are marinated in beer, but they serve then together so they don't get cross contaminated. Most of the salad bar is gf if you ask they can point out what isn't. And my favorite part, all of the appetizers that are included in the meal are gf, even the rolls (which are delicious)! Love this place!

We came to celebrate a birthday after calling ahead to make sure they have GF options. The waitress was very kind and patient, and double checked the information to make sure she got it right. We were happy to learn almost the entire salad bar was safe, as are all meats except for one kind. There was also a wide variety of deserts that are GF - everything they make in house. Overall we had a great experience and no symptoms.

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.

Called in an order and was told it would be ready in 5-10 minutes. Arrived 15-20 minutes later and it still wasn’t ready. Had to wait 15 minutes and the hostess was not helpful at all. Manager finally came out since I communicated to everyone I was in a rush and a car was waiting for me outside. He offered a promo for their mistakes. Disappointed with their service.
