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!

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!
