There is definitely a disclaimer with this place. It truly depends which employee you get because I spoke to 1 that didn’t even know they had a gluten free menu and the manager I spoke with wasn’t sure if her kitchen knew how to prepare the gluten free food. But upon her asking, she told me the kitchen manager is fully aware of how to prepare the gluten free food and keeps it in a separate area. It’s nice to know that the kitchen staff is aware.

My personal experience last night was great. I sat in the bar area and had an amazing waiter who knew to check with the kitchen about preparing the food separately and he checked that my dish was made with the gluten free pasta before I took a bite. He even gladly checked the brand name of the olive oil for me so I could look it up (I’ve reacted to a ton of olive oils). He assured me many times that I wouldn’t get sick and made me feel super comfortable. I sadly didn’t get his name but he was tall with a beard and said he had been there for years. I got the spaghetti with clams substituted with gluten free penne and it was amazing. I didn’t react at all. Even their creme brûlée is gluten free!

I took initiative and called ahead since I saw the other reviews and wanted to get a better idea. I spoke with the manager and she told me they do the best they can by preparing food separately and keeping everyone aware. I made a reservation, and the manager made sure to keep in contact with me throughout the night. Although there weren’t too many GF options, I did have the house salad with their vinaigrette and GF Mac and cheese and did not get sick. I would go back again, as my server and the manager were thoughtful.

They take gluten free very seriously. Talked with one of the managers, and he explained that if someone specifies gluten free, a manager is notified, and they make sure all protocols are followed, fresh gloves, clean utensils and such. I suggested that like PF Changs, they also use a different plate design in order to make very clear to the waiter which plate is GF to avoid mixing them up in delivery. He liked the idea and is exploring it. A pretty extensive GF menu and it was good.

Celiac friendly with a disclaimer. I’ve eaten here three times and did not get sick. I always order pasta and give them instructions to use clean utensils and prepare in a clean area away from gluten. That being said, they definitely have a CYA attitude here because their menu states that gluten free items may contain gluten because it’s a shared kitchen. The manager came out and told me the same thing last time I ate here. They dredge dishes in flour and make pizza here. I am very sensitive and have been ok eating the pasta when they take special precautions. The food is really great and they have excellent service. I think their kitchen is large enough for it to be ok, but I understand not wanting to be sued.

Wow! Is all I can say at first. Lots of GF choices and ALL taste incredible. Server was very knowledgeable. They did goof on my mussels and put bread on top but it was caught immediately and the dish was remade. The manager came out and check and comp'd the dish. We will be going back often.

Great GF menu. I had the pasta and it was great. Knowledgeable server and she spoke with the chef re my paranoid concerns. 4 stars due to the noise decimals it was very loud. Not a place for romance. Highly recommend.
