    The food isn't terrible. I'd even be impressed if it were a diner. But, the prices are absurd for food that's on a level slightly better than that of a Ruby Tuesday. If you're looking for an upscale treat, go elsewhere. I wouldn't say the staff is rude, but they clearly think they work in a much more impressive restaurant than they do. For gluten-free options, you have your choice of Manhattan clam chowder, a chopped salad (optional chicken/shrimp upgrade), three kinds of steak, and maybe the seafood tower appetizer (can't remember). Meh. I don't mind expensive meals, and I don't mind snobbery where snobbery is due, but the food and the experience better back it up. If you want to pay 3x the value of meal eaten at a tiny, crooked, wobbly table, served by icy staff, then bon app├ętit! I won't be back.

    Pricey, classic splurge restaurant safe for celiacs in New York's capital city. Multiple GF menu options. Wait staff knowledgeable and accommodating, providing plain oil & vinegar on the side rather than house dressing. I had the steamed lobster (hard to get gluten-ed by that). Celiacs with high sensitivity might want to ask how the various other menu options (including Steak Diane!) are prepared.
