Awesome experience. When we ask what was celiac safe, the manager came over to the table during peak hours and told us exactly what had gluten. Only three items had gluten. Everything's else, including the cheese bread, was safe to eat.

Totally worth the price! There literally were two things I could NOT have! Two! Celiac heaven! I haven’t eaten at a buffet since being diagnosed 6 years ago.

This is the first place I’ve eaten at since my celiac diagnosis that I felt 100% safe eating. They handed me a list of allergens as soon as I said I was celiac so I would know what I could and couldn’t eat. The “couldn’t eat” list was TINY. I would definitely recommend this place.

The staff is incredible. There are only a few gluten containing items. The Brazilian cheese bread bites and mashed potatoes really are amazing!

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!

This place is amazing! It's pricey, so definitely best for special occasions, but almost all of the food is gluten-free and delicious. The manager brought me a detailed allergen guide which was helpful. I tried many different things on the buffet, meats etc. and had no reaction after eating there.

This restaurant was amazing! There is only 3 items that are Not gluten-free. They bring you bread to the table that is Gluten-free. Many meat options and huge buffet. It is most expensive but worth it for any special night out.

This restaurant is a real experience but very expensive. This is fixed price all you can eat concept restaurant. Everything including fresh popovers except three items are gluten free. The salad bar very extensive and outstanding. Every kind of meat is freshly carved at your plate if you want it. I felt many of the meats were tough but some like the roast beef and steak were very good. Best of all I am a very sensitive celiac and did not get sick in spite of the fact I probably ate 20 - 25 different foods. I was wowed by the freshly baked gluten free popovers. I would return to the restaurant just for them.

As said by other reviewers, almost completely GF. Unbelievably excellent service (thanks to head waiter Ben), amazing food, and GF bread that is brought to your table is to die for. YES! I ate bread that tasted good. As a celiac, I was in heaven the entire evening. Can't wait to return.

Knowledgable and attentive staff, unique dining experience, and delicious gluten free food! Almost all food offered is naturally gluten free, the only no-nos are the French bread and 1 or 2 pasta salads on the salad buffet and one of the chicken meats, but with so many other options, you'll be too stuffed with all the tasty sides, meats and salad options, you won't be missing anything!

Amazing restaurant. As someone with celiac disease, I get very wary about restaurants. But our waiter immediately asked if anyone had any dietary restricts. When I informed him I was celiac, he knew everything already that was guaranteed gluten free (which is most of the menu). He even went & asked the kitchen/manager to confirmation. The market table was all gluten free except the croutons & bread. Each item had its own instrument so no cross contamination. The meat was all gluten free except for the chicken legs, as it was marinated in a beer sauce, but the chicken breast was fine. The Brazilian sides were not gluten free, but it did not really matter as there was so much food I was completely full. Amazing restaurant, amazing food, & amazing service. I felt they were at a high standard to validate my celiac needs & would definitely recommend & go again.

Almost everything is gluten free, including the bread at every table!! Our server was VERY knowledgeable about cross contamination and said I would be safe eating off the Buffett (I chose not to), but to avoid the hummus, chicken and bread. I tested the bread at the table with my Nima, tested GF. I’m VERY sensitive and did not get sick.

Be sure to ask for their allergen list print out. Very easy to read and includes everything available from the meats to the market bar. Don't be worried about the table bread, cheese bread is made with tapioca starch. The meats are brought out seperately so cross contamination (from chicken dishes) was not a worry. Even GF dessert available!
