Staff was highly knowledgeable and accommodating, including knowing how to modify each menu item to make them GF. They even had an alternate recipe for the Brussels & cauliflower that relied on roasting them instead of frying.

Had the braised short ribs, absolutely amazing! Staff was super helpful and accommodating. Even made sure to change how the brussel sprouts were cooked to avoid cross contamination (without me asking them to). There are quite a few options on the menu for being gf.

Waiter was extremely knowledgeable and even asked whether it was an allergy or preference to gauge if cross contamination would need to be avoided. The chef was more than willing to make any dish on the menu gluten free if it was possible. I had the salomn and it was absolutely wonderful. The atmosphere and food we're both amazing. Would highly recommend.

I told the staff I could have no gluten and no dairy and our waiter literally went through the entire menu and told me what was safe or not. He was very knowledgable. He even gave me alternatives for dishes that weren’t safe without me even asking (lettuce wrap instead of bun, a sauce w/out soy etc). I’m not celiac (just intolerant) so I didn’t ask about cc or dedicated prep areas so I can’t speak to that piece but I felt like they really took my intolerances seriously. I highly recommend.
