We had an INCREDIBLE experience. I recommend going earlier in the dinner seating so it is not as busy. The food was constantly flowing and we got great support around GF options. Almost everything was gluten free except for the chicken wings and bread on the salad bar. The cheese bread served to the table is gluten free and truly amazing. Highly recommend. We felt very safe.

Not only was the food excellent, but they were very aware of celiac and did a great job. By the way first restaurant we have ever been that the bread on the table was already GF.

Mostly everything is gluten free minus some of the side dishes at the salad bar. Live the cheesy rolls, fried polenta, and carmalized bananas along with the meats! Very yummy and I didn't get sick at all! Double score!

Ate here, food was meh aside from the meat. Sides came out cold and were nothing to write home about. That aside, I didn't get sick. but the waiter far from instilled confidence in me on what I could eat. I wouldn't go back honestly.

So delicious. Everything on the bar is gluten free except bread. They had candied bacon, olives, cheese, tomatoes, salad, grilled veggies, etc. They brought to the table fried bananas, fried polenta, mashed potatoes, and the BEST EVER gf rolls. They said the chicken drumsticks were marinated in beer and they were touching the sausage so those were not safe. But the bacon-wrapped chicken and filet mignon were amazing.

Best ever tasting gf rolls, but something glutened me. The staff said stay away from chicken, sausage and bread at salad bar. I ate only meats, cheese and 1 bite of the gf roll. I suspect a spice rub had wheat. I was very clear expressing my needs, but was Still cross contaminated somehow... Too bad

Everything is gluten free except for the black bean soup and the Italian bread. The self serve market bar is all gluten free. Their cheese bread which is brought to the table is delicious and gluten free. I ordered sea bass which was soft and buttery. My wife ordered salmon which was slightly overcooked. The roasted broccoli was undercooked and we sent it back. Everything else was good. My grandson ordered meat which he enjoyed.

My mom and I went here during our NYC trip. We both were pretty hungry and wanted meat and salad. I was blown away at the salad bar- so many fresh and clean options! They also bring out little cheese breads to the table that are GF as well as fried polenta which is GF. Then you can have as much meat as you’d like which was all GF. I think there was maybe only one thing on the whole food bar that wasn’t GF. Waiter was knowledgeable and I didn’t get sick! Wonderful variety

After reading the reviews here, I was a bit concerned but I had a great experience! The waiter immediately brought me a menu with all allergens when I mentioned I had celiac. There were only 2 things being served in the entire buffet that had gluten. Very few things I had to avoid. The little bread they put on the table are also gluten free and delicious! I ate a lot and had no reaction.
