Gluten Free items listed on the regular menu. Server was knowledgeable about preparation and ingredients (knew which salad dressings were GF etc). I had the Chopped Salad; reasonably tasty but nothing special.

Terrible experience tonight. We went for dinner with a group of friends, focusing on tweens. We were told ahead of time that the kitchen could accommodate gf. My celiac diagnosed daughter ordered pasta labeled gf from the menu. When we clarified cross contamination practices we were told that the gf pasta is cooked in the same water as all other pasta! Why bother? I cancelled our meals. We left to find another restaurant so that my daughter didn’t have to watch the rest of the group eat without her. Extremely disappointed. I don’t recommend this restaurant for diners with gf needs.

I have Celiac Disease and after reading reviews and speaking to the restaurant we decided it sounded like a safe place to eat. It was very clear after speaking to our server that she didn't understand the seriousness of Celiac and was not knowledgeable at all about the Grand Lux gluten free options. She was dismissive when I asked if the fries were cooked in a dedicated fryer and not willing to check with the cooks. My salad was served with dressing that contained gluten, I sent it back. The salad came back with the gluten free dressing on the side but the salad had a giant cracker inside of it. There was one mistake after another. Even my Mother was served the wrong meal, thankfully she isn't gluten free. I ended up taking my meal to go and throwing it away when I got home, I didn't feel safe eating it. Very disappointing experience

I ordered a steak and the server said they would cook it on foil to prevent cross contamination. They even carried my order out separately. It was good and I didn't get sick.

I expected more GF options with such a large menu. Notified server I have CD and required a GF meal. Ordered house salad, rib eye, mashed potato and asparagus. The server said the only dressing for the salad that was GF was the blue cheese (which I thought was odd). Went with oil and vinegar. My entree arrived with two huge fried onion rings on top of the steak so the whole meal had to go back. My husband and daughter were about 2/3 done with their entrees when my replacement arrived. The meal was tasty. My daughter ordered their famous beignets (aka torture). When the beignets arrived, our server put dessert plates in front of the three of us. Really?? Although the correction was made, the meal was good and I didn’t get “glutened”, I expected a bit more attention to detail. Word to the wise, be very specific when ordering.

They have a few items on their menu, not a ton of options. I had their kale salad for a light dinner and it was delicious and safe. It’s a great place for atmosphere and drinks, not so much celiac friendly food.

I don't know what to say...or how to start. I got Pasta Carbonara-Imported Spaghettini Tossed with Smoked Bacon, Peas, a Touch of Garlic and a Parmesan Cream Sauce. It was delicious and I was enjoying it soooo much. Then while I was almost done I found a regular noodle mixed in! I really like it so I guess make your own decision whether to come or not

They have labeled options on the menu for dishes they can make GF. This includes some pasta dishes, some meat dishes, some burgers & sandwiches, some salads, pot roast, and a chicken dish. Also the chocolate cheesecake. As you can see, not all options of these are GF. It's a great atmosphere though with amazing mojitos! I will be coming back here for sure

Do not go to the Grand Lux Cafe if you have a TRUE GLUTEN ALLERGY or any other type of ALLERGY!!! Grossly incompetent!! They are liars!!! Not safe!!! My six year old son has Celiac disease. Prior to going there we called to check if was safe for my son and they stated it was. They even bragged about how they have a separate food prep area. When we were seated at the table we alerted our server that my son has a gluten allergy and again we were told it was safe. When they brought the food to the table we alerted them again and again we were told how safe it was. Prior to ordering dessert the server even doubled checked with the manager and again we were told it was safe!!! Guess what?45 minutes later my son is throwing up and in excruciating pain!! They definitely failed my son!!! Please take this as a WARNING for anyone who has Celiac or any other type of FOOD ALLERGY to stay away from the Grand Lux Cafe!!! They clearly lack the proper training, education, leadership and empathy to keep their customers safe from harm!!! If it happened once it will happen again!!!

Again this place is not safe!!! If you have celiac or any other food allergies!!! Avoid at all cost no matter what they say!!! It’s just not worth the risk!!!

Server ignored my request to mark ticket allergy/celiac however I was only getting a salad and reassured me that gloves were changed every time before making a salad so no croutons cross contamination. Also changed dressing to make salad gluten free and brought plate separately from the ones with bread.

I would have given 5 stars, because it is usually so good. Last time I ate there, though, the lettuce was rusty. It was 11:30 AM, probably left over the evening before, and should have been thrown out. The toppings on the salad were beautifully displayed and tasty, but the lettuce had an off taste.

Our experience was okay, not great. They do have gluten free options, but we didn't get any of the fancy stuff others are mentioning as they are not on the menu and must have been specially prepared. Our server wasn't very knowledgeable and she didn't care. The food was decent, but not outstanding. You can find better gluten free options for the money.

Celiac safe! Server, Manager, and Chef collaborate before preparing food. Very extensive menu with tons of gf options. Fryer NOT dedicated. Pastrami Burger and Warm Chicken Salad are fabulous, so is chocolate cheesecake. Surprisingly affordable for Vegas. Server (Lauren!) very patient and understanding. Would go back in a heartbeat. Located in Venitian Hotel.

Visited the Palazzo location and was pleasantly surprised by this place. Server was knowledgeable. Regular menu has GF marked on it. The menu is very long and diverse. Had the GF pasta Telefono, which was a red sauce with cheese. They leave the breadcrumbs off if GF. Meal was good, nice texture and flavor. Pasta was slightly over over cooked. The creme brûlée is the only GF dessert offered. It's a large portion and pretty good.

This was such a wonderful dining experience. There should be a lot more restaurants like this around. I am gf/df and they had lots of options for me to choose from, and a lot of them were outside the normal gf/df menu. They had gf buns and all the food is cooked fresh or made fresh on sight. I hope to go back before returning home.

Knowledgeable staff, friendly, big portions. I got the Grand Cobb Salad expecting in to not quite fill me. It ended up being a full supper that night and brunch the next morning. There are communal breadbowls on the table so pop your cutlery on your lap before the breadbowls are delivered if you want to prevent crumbs on your napkin/cutlery.
