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.

Mostly everything here was gluten free. I was hesitant at first and took some precautions, but everything was great. If you haven’t eaten this style before, they come around to your table with a slab of meat and slice off a portion if you want to try it. There are several meats that are not gluten free, but there were more than enough options without it. I was skeptical of the buffet, but [at least on the night I was there] almost everything on the table was gluten free. I stood there and watched it for 5 minutes before deciding it was worth it to check out a couple items. Taking off a star for safety due to the waitstaff; somewhat knowledgeable, but also apathetic and not willing to get answers very quickly (like 30 minutes into the meal when everyone else was already eating). My primary complaint was the servers — one was a little weird encouraging us to drink and drive (we did not, of course), and one just did not help at all. We went somewhat close to the opening and seemed like a decent amount of turnover with the waitstaff, so perhaps it was a logistical issue and has since improved. I had a vegetarian friend who went and found plenty to eat to hang with her family, but I’m not sure I would recommend that for the price point. I did not get sick, and was very full :)

I haven’t been yet but looking online it looks like their entire market menu is naturally gluten free. Apparently they can also serve Brazi bread. Hope to check out soon.

The food was great. But as in all you can eat establishment, it's quite expensive unless you come with a huge appetite. They have an extensive allergen menu that they can bring to the table, and my server seem to be pretty knowledgeable about what has gluten. I ate here without any issues.

My favorite restaurant! I have celiac disease and it is extremely safe. Everything is gluten free except for one bread & perhaps one or two salads. I go for lunch and have the Market Table filled with a wide variety of salads, fresh fruits and veggies, hummus, cheeses, cured meats & salmon. There's also rice, beans with sausage, and seasonal soup. They also bring garlic mashed potatoes, caramelized bananas, crispy polenta, and Brazilian cheese bread to your table. You can also add the table service of the continuously served fire roasted meats.
