    90% of the menu is gluten free. Great tasting food and wonderful service. They will create a menu for celiac customers. Just ask for it.

    The other day we went there and simply they do not have control over their food. Lots on the menu listed as GF but we will not take our celiac kids here. They are clueless and do not have attention to detail to keep celiacs safe.

    I have to modify my earlier review and wholeheartedly agree with our friend "celiacprobs." INOVASI IS NOT CELIAC FRIENDLY. As a less sensitive celiac-mom of two extremely sensitive celiacs, I valiantly took it upon myself to investigate the current status of Inovasi's GF world. I followed typical celiac protocol and found the manager immediately upon arrival, notified him of the controversy surrounding their food, and asked him to make sure the kitchen kept my food celiac-safe. He was quite gracious & made me feel pretty good about my prospects. After three simple drink order screw-ups and a fire alarm, the manager confidently brought our food to the table and advised my (non-celiac) FRIEND that he had carefully tracked her food through the kitchen and kept it completely safe. I picked up my jaw off the floor and asked, "what about MY food?" His response, " Oh. Well, everyone's food at this table was cooked together." Riiiigght. My celiac boys will never set foot in this restaurant again, despite the fact that nearly everything on the menu is marked GF. They're missing the mark by a mile.

    GLUTEN FREE BUT NOT CELIAC FRIENDLY!!! I repeat, NOT CELIAC FRIENDLY!! Gluten containing items are cooked, prepared, and served on/with the gluten free foods. I was very excited to try this place after hearing so many good things, but upon entering I noticed a shared kitchen for both of the restaurants where both gluten and gluten free options were being cooked and prepared. I decided to still try it as I was reassured rather passionately that the food was indeed celiac friendly. Long story short, I got very ill, and will NOT be recommending this restaurant to Celiacs.

    We eat here regularly. Menu is always changing, but 90% or more items are gluten free. They only fry things that are GF. We regularly have the calamari and fries. Try Tuesday burger night. GF buns are great.

    AMAZING gluten free fried calamari. Almost the entire menu is gluten free, and everything on their dessert menu is (including a banana bread pudding) Ask for the bread and butter with gluten free bread! They have ladies night on Wednesday's where apps and drinks are half off.
