Excellent experience! I've been pre-celiac and went for th first time post diagnosis. We ordered in person and took to go. I still got a GF dinner roll and had a separate bag of food.

Wonderful experience!! I had salmon with grits and asparagus with cheese sauce....so good. The chocolate flourless cake was delicious! They were very knowledgeable and went out of their way to keep my food safe. Even came out with a little flag to identify gluten free. Will definitely go again.

Double checked with manager before placing order. Notates order ticket multiple times. Confirmed when order was picked up as well.

Nice portions. Great flavor. Super friendly.

They seem to be very allergy conscious but I got the gf eggplant parm and my nima found gluten. They remade me some pad Thai and it was fine. Would be careful

Extensive gluten free menu with a wide variety of options. The waiter noticed my gf menu and immediately offered to put in a request for a gf roll, which came wrapped in protective aluminum foil. That kind of attention to detail is critical for safe food. I can't say enough good things about this restaurant. Go and enjoy yourself!

This place was phenomenal! They have an entire GF menu including appetizers, several entrees and 4 desserts! When the waitress saw I had a GF menu, she asked me about it and right away put in an order for a GF roll. The roll was quite good. I had veggies and hummus for an appetizer, spaghetti squash with pesto sauce and rice for my entree and a slice of chocolate flourless cake with ice cream for dessert. I plan to go back for breakfast because they have GF French toast.

A year later and this place is still very delicious!! They definitely know how to treat their customers with allergies. They have so many options but I just can’t resist their cilantro lime chicken. And the redskin mashers, excellent!! Very tasting! Oct 2019

Back again. 2018 Still delicious!! One of our favorite places to eat in Williamsburg. They treat you well and you will leave this place thinking about it and wanting to go again.

This place is definitely a must try. They have their own gluten-free menu. Served me a warm and tasty dinner roll wrapped in foil. I was undecided so I ordered the combo jerk chicken with mango salsa and the cilantro lime chicken. They both were excellent but I have to say my favorite was the cilantro lime chicken it was outstanding, with mashed red potatoes and grilled zucchini. The owner (a nice professional looking gentlemen) came out and introduced himself and invited us to come back for breakfast. The food was hot, the service was quick and overall it was a very pleasant experience. Enjoy!!

Very knowledgable about celiac and cross contamination. My son with celiac got the steak with chimichurri sauce and said it was delicious. It is a shared fryer so they baked his french fries. The rest of the family enjoyed their meals as well. Very busy, no reservations but you do priority seating by calling ahead.

This being the best food in town, it gets extremely crowded for dinner. Walked in at 6:30 and was seated at 7:10. No reservations are taken. I ordered the Down South (fancy shrimp and grits) and it was delicious. Not enough shrimp though (only 3-4 medium size). I had some pretty intense bloating afterwards, so I suspect this place is not safe for celiac.

Hands down one of the best celiac friendly restaurants I have ever been to. We went twice for lunch during our visit to Williamsburg. Both times the staff was attentive and knowledgeable. They kindly made sure to verify GF or any other diet sensitivity for each order we placed. They have delicious GF buns. They baked the fries instead of frying them. During our second visit the mananger came out and talked to us about their processes to keep the GF food same. She informed us that they recently started using a GF tester for quality control to ensure their processes are safe. Wonderful place!!!

Celiac’s do not get gf pasta! They were very knowledgeable about cross contamination and was told they use separate pots and strainers but my son is throwing up this morning after eating there last night. They had such great reviews from others so I think we would go again but get something different.

Ate here a couple of times while on vacation. LOVE IT! Extensive options for gluten free. Bread brought to the table! (If you want more, its $1 a roll, which I think is totally reasonable). Our food was delicious both times. I had the Caprese appetizer, as did my daughter. We both loved it. I had the chicken both nights (one night did the combo of Cilantro Lime and Jamaican jerk, and the next time had just the Cilantro Lime). Lots of side item choices. My daughter had the burger...I tasted the bun and it was good! Had the chocolate dessert one night which was also delicious. Knowledgeable staff and fantastic service. I wish we had a place like this close to home.

Extensive GF menu, carefully prepared. Very knowledgeable wait staff (and hostess!!!)... GF bread served ($1 if you want more bread- worth it!)...

We loved his place! They have a gluten free menu with many choices. As we sat down and mentioned that I am gluten free, the waiter immediately requested a gluten free roll on his iPad. It was warm and delicious. They offered butter and dairy free margarine which was great. Everything about this place is wonderful, food, atmosphere and staff. The staff all seem to enjoy working there and speak highly of the owner who is often on-site. The GF flourless chocolate cake was delicious and the presentation was lovely. We absolutely loved our waiter Ian and will be sure to return!!

They had a gluten free menu. We had gluten free dinner rolls. I had the eggplant Parmesan gluten free and dairy free. They actually had a raspberry hazelnut torte that was gluten free and vegan. When one is both gluten and dairy free there is never dessert. My kids had gluten free Mac and cheese, not something we find very often. My food was delicious, good service and dessert!!

EXCELLENT! I have multiple food sensitivities (gluten and nightshades), and all levels of staff took them seriously. A manager sat down with me to discuss what they could do to accommodate me. She even brought one of the recipes out so I could double-check the ingredients! The gluten-free rolls arrived warm and toasty, in individual foil wrap to prevent cross-contamination. I highly recommend the Roasted Beet Salad. We ate dinner there 3 times on our vacation because the food was so good and they were so attentive. Can't wait to go back the next time we're in Williamsburg!
