This restaurant mainly serves buffet style. MOST of the items on the buffet are gluten free, but they include regular French Bread which creates cross contamination potential for the entire food bar. Some desserts have gluten. The items on the food bar are not labeled for ingredients or allergens.

I asked if anything was not gluten free, and told 2 waiters I had celiac. I was served the chicken which apparently is marinated in regular beer. No serious reaction but that is abysmal.

The food was very good, overall.

As far as service, we had a remarkably terrible experience given that this is a fancy restaurant. We were given no direction his to start the meat ‘experience’ and 2 of us sat while one ate her fish. 3/4 of the sides simply ever came out, which we only realized when someone brought a plate of mashed potatoes after we were 90% done. Server kept assuming guest, who we were treating for a special occasion, was getting the bill, and addressed him about wine cost 2-3 times. The server blamed the kitchen and argued with us when we said we had issues with never getting our sides. It was so bad I think I forgot a flaw or two. Oh, and we waited so long for the bill our guest had to leave from the table.

The combination of high prices, awful service, and being served food with gluten means I am highly unlikely to return to this location. The fact that it’s 95% gf means I’ll probably try another location some day.

Staff is knowledgeable about gluten items and will prepare gluten free if requested

One of the only places I can go for some fantastic table breads. Their bread is made from rice and tapioca flour and is amazing.

Awesome salad bar!

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? $$$$$

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!

Amazing. I ate a ton of cheese bread. Everything was gluten free except the chicken and the bread on the soup bar.

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).
