Beautiful and historic plantation and restaurant. Make reservations weeks in advance if you can. We celebrated our anniversary there and we’re seated in the gazebo overlooking the gardens. Very good gf options. I had the best vegetarian gf lasagna that I’ve ever had in my 50+ years of eating vegetarian. All ingredients come straight from their own garden on property every day.

Had the holiday preset menu. Waitress was awesome and accommodating. Went out of her way to make accommodations for our party outside of the set menu, knew about fryer cross contamination and asked the chef to make our table a special gf banana cream pie, even though it wasn’t on the menu for the night. My kids were thrilled. Our orders are never easy as I am dairy free too and this restaurant went out of their way to make our Christmas meal special and safe

I ate here for my birthday last night, it was excellent. I’m really sensitive and didn’t get sick at all. The waitress and everyone there knew exactly what to do. I had the chicken and for dessert they brought out a slice of banana cream pie with a coconut crust. Everything was so delicious, and they were very knowledgeable. Really cute venue too, it’s an old house made into a restaurant. I will definitely be returning here when we come back to Kauai!

Staff seemed confused about what celiac is. I ordered a cucumber lavender mojito and they up charged me for the rum I chose because I wanted to make sure it was a gluten free spirit used. When it came out it was way too sweet and I couldn’t drink it. The waiter was friendly just not knowledgeable. I ate the caprese salad without crostini. It was delicious but small. Celiacs should steer clear of this restaurant.

Wait staff was not knowledgeable answering questions. None of the salad dressing are gluten free, they add flour to the dressing. All the dinner menus sauces have gluten. Not a great meal for celiac.

Bit on the expensive side, but the staff was very accommodating and helpful regarding GF status of menu. They don't have a dedicated menu. We had the pork tenderloin. Very tasty, just ask them to make sure there is no soy sauce added. We were seated next to the courtyard after dark, beautiful ambiance. My (gluten eating) father had the cioppino and felt that the texture was too smooth, not enough big pieces of seafood, though the flavor was good.

If you have celiac do not go there! They gave me a gf menu with items that they assume are gluten free if you don't have the bread or croutons, ect. It was obvious they knew nothing about gf or celiac. I did not to eat as I knew I would be terribly sick if I did. If you are just gf to be gf then it'd be fine, but you people confuse restaurants for those of us you actually have to eat gf, so I fear we will never be able to eat out so how about you just order normal and ask to hold the bread don'tsay you're gluten free.

Didn't do the restaurant, but I went to luau kalamaku, which I believe they provide the food for. It was SO GOOD. The luau was pretty commercial, but the show was entertaining. When I told them I had celiac they came out and gave me an ingredient list of all the buffet items, and they have gf items labeled on the buffet tags as well. They had Kalua pork, rice, mashed purple sweet potatoes made with coconut milk, Thai curry veggies and some salmon salsa- like thing. The poi is gf. They even had banana creme pie that had a crust made of corn starch and toasted coconut that was gf, in addition to rice pudding and a sweetened coconut pudding like thing. And the rum here is amazing :).

Delicious Luau buffet! Items are marked GF on the buffet too! If you call ahead and let them know of your celiac/gluten allergy you will be allowed to go first through the line! (At least that was my experience) Very friendly and knowledgable staff. I even had some of cooks walk me through the buffet line to make sure I got all the gluten free options on my plate :)
