Server seemed a little hesitant which scarred me, the service was mediocre in general. Got the salmon benedict which was prettu good, just very small. Very sensitive celiac and did not appear to get sick. Make sure to go over evrrything thoroughly with them

Menu has gf items marked. Li told the waitress I had Celiacs and could not have gluten. She seemed to understand. Brought my soup with regular bread sitting on the edge. She was overloaded and seemed tired. She apologized, but given the understaffing, I decided to move on without taking the risk of contamination.

No RANCH dressing? Outrageous! However, our food was hot , tasty and quickly served. GF on the run is important!

June 28, 2018. My second review is for the chain at MSP, but this time in the main concorse near the entry to the E and C terminals. We ate off the main menu and sat in the bar. No GF beer. The restaurant has several GF options without any modification. No GF buns for a burger. I had a Cobb salad and was quite happy with the taste, portion, and service. I would eat at this location again, but maybe not the one in my second review (below).

This is for the shop in the F terminal of MSP. It was highly recommended. Have GF bread. Good tasting food. Cross-contamination is an issue here. Easy to see it happening. at grill Hard to draw attention to it and stop them. New to Celiac diagnosis. Hopefully this won't be an issue.

Very gf friendly. Bakery case had gf bagels, brownies and lemon bars. The menu for the sit down restaurant did not note gf items but the server said they had gf toast and was able to tell me which items were gf, which included standard brkfst items. Food was very good.

Absolutely phenomenal! A great GF selection, and a huge variety of GF desserts. We got their steak salad, and it's one of the better steak salads I've ever had. Very helpful staff. Excited to go back!

So many gluten free options and all of our meals were great! They did have a few kids options as well. The servings were huge, it was so fun to look at the bakery window and let my son pick out whichever cake he wanted as they had more GF options than not. Wait staff did a great job of making notes about who needed GF, although we all ended up with GF meals since there were so many options. We were very happy with our meals!

This place blew me away. Super yum, so many options. It’s definitely a little booshie and expensive, but totally worth it. Don’t miss the pastry case at the front! I had the blueberry corn pancake - amazing and huge. I had to order the pommes frites and they didn’t blow me away, but then I found the pastry case and got the triple mousse cake and the chocolate chip cookie. Both were awesome. I was also really wanting to try the Mac and cheese (gf?? At a restaurant?!? Yes!!) but it was 9:30am. Next time. Highly recommend.
