    Chef came out to explain cooking process and safety precautions to us. They had quite a few options. Very well cooked and no reaction from my celiac daughter. Would have been nice to have better substitutions mainly for the sauces containing gluten, but overall a good meal. Update: Returned one year later. It was not particularly busy. Waiter was unfamiliar with gluten precautions - as was his support. Chef didn't come out either. Explained situation, but appeared to us that they couldn't assure our safety. Frankly, we lost confidence that we could eat there safely so we left. Thus lowered to 1 star from a coeliac point of view. Shame really...

    This place was definitely on the ball with gluten free options. Service is fantastic and the food was even better.

    Great food! Waitress was educated about gluten and cross contamination. Kitchen takes extra precautions not to cross contaminate. Didn't get sick.

    No official GF menu, server asked the chef and they made a great GF dish. However, service was slow and no one really had any GF knowledge other than the chef.

    We had a great GF experience at Hemingway's Grill. The chicken was nicely grilled & the spaghetti squash was perfect. My GF dining companion had the pork tenderloin...just the right amount of spicyness. Before dining there, the hostess was able to confidently reassure me that they regularly accommodate gluten-free diners & was able to explain how the waitstaff communicates the gluten free request to the kitchen & then they use clean cooking ware, utensils, & clean prep area to avoid cross-contamination. I liked hearing that!

    They have a gluten free menu and the food was amazing! I had the Hurricane Shrimp, asparagus with feta, and maduros (plantains with vanilla rum sauce to dip)... I highly recommend trying them!
