    Keoki style on any of the fresh fish is fantastic and gluten free - entree will change out rice to plain white. There are several options in the menu. They are careful and celiac aware and very careful to not cross contaminate. Managers deliver food and make kitchen aware. Been many times and didn’t get sick.

    Wonderful experience! Our waiter asked if anyone at the table had allergies and I said I had celiac. He told me he’d let the manager know and how to find and read gf options on the menu. The manager then came out himself and confirmed that he personally made the chefs and staff aware of the allergy and that all celiac plates are brought out separately from the other dishes. Our waiter brought out gf soy sauce without being asked for an appetizer and was so friendly the entire meal. My boyfriend and I split the lobster which was amazing and we also got Thai shrimp appetizer which had delicious sauce! Many drink options as well and a great atmosphere. A few misunderstandings (no cross contamination just awareness of the seriousness of celiac) like the waiter said I could eat some of the pie (ice cream only) even though it has Oreo crust on it. Overall a great experience though!

    Very, very careful when it comes to cross contamination. Our server wrote down “celiac” on his order into, and informed me that their procedure is to inform the managers and chefs directly about the celiac customer to ensure no cross contamination. I order a gluten free appetizer, which was brought out by the manager. He confirmed that I was the celiac and let me know he personally made sure everyone was aware. He also mentioned that they carry out all celiac dishes on their own (rather than when servers stack 3-4 plates up there arms) to avoid C.C. I had the seafood risotto and it was super tasty. This place has a cool ambiance, delicious food and a very thoughtful staff. Definitely recommend!

    No longer has separate GF menu, but server was happy to explain which options could be prepared gf beyond the few already labeled as such. Chef and manager visited us to explain safety precautions in our food prep. Had very tasty fish and mashed potatoes with coconut banana pie for dessert. Kids happy. Parents happy

    Very impressed with this restaurant. Our server seemed knowledgeable (modified the drink to have GF vodka without us having to ask), and a manager came out to speak with us and explain their methods to avoid CC in the kitchen. Food was delicious and they even has GF pie for dessert! Highly recommend!

    Amazing experience and atmosphere. And the food was great, as well. They go out of their way to keep celiacs safe, and the server says what else can be made gf that isn't on the menu. Even the young man who brought the island iced tea said they weteaware of the celiac disease. Add to this the beauty of the place (see picture) and we're definitely returning before we leave Kauai!

    staff knowledgeable, manager came to our table without asking and brought out the food separately himself . Food was OK My daughter liked her GF food and on top of celiac is very picky. they had fair amount of GF option not just salads .Not as pricey as other places we ate. Certainly should be on your list celiac or not. My daughter did not get sick

    Good food, but really overpriced for what they offer. There are a couple gf options in each category but don't go expecting a multitude of choices. They didn't have all the gf options labeled so I did have to ask the server.

    I had the fish sandwich with a GF bun and rice instead of fries because they have shared fryers. The bun was one of the best I have had and the fish was amazing, highly recommended. I also recommend the mango colada, I had two and did not have any reactions. Partner had the pulled pork sandwich with GF bun and it was also very tasty. Everything was very affordable.

    Great GF food, although only about 3 items in each category and no dessert, they do have a GF bun that was perfect. Would definitely come back for the fish sandwich I had, only thing that would have made it better would have been fries (no fried food for GF). Could definitely be 5 star (GF ) with a few changes.

    Went here for lunch and was glad to see that they had a GF Menu. I ordered the GF Bacon Cheese Burger on a GF Bun , since the Fries do not have a dedicated fryer I was able to sub a salad. The meal was great! The local beef and bacon made the burger mouth watering! If they had a dedicated GF fryer and offered a GF Beer on the menu I would have given them five stars.

    I'm torn with Keoki's, yes it's an extremely safe bet if you're a celiac. I have eaten here plenty of times and never gotten sick. Staff is very knowledgeable and goes the extra mile to make sure you won't get sick. I have to get it 3 stars because the selection of GF foods and the price just aren't on point. There isn't much to choose from on the lunch or dinner menus and the portions are TINY. Compared to the person next to you with a gluten meal, you are literally getting ripped off, going hungry and paying double (sometime triple) the price. I go here when invited to a get together or organized dinner. Otherwise, your money is better spent elsewhere.

    Fair gluten-free menu but decidedly mediocre service. When I mentioned that the "steamed mixed vegetables" (basically hot coleslaw, ew) were lackluster, the server gave a sarcastic response. For the price, I would expect to be treated better.

    They have a GF menu. Staff was accommodating. Delicious food. I got the fillet mignon. No GF desserts on the menu but the waiter brought me a dish of ice cream. Very nice waiter, though the hostess seemed aloof.

    a good GF menu and good food. Our server was knowledgeable and very helpful. The ambiance is fun and somewhat tropical. I had an amazing Kale salad and my wife (celiac also) had mahi mahi. Right next to Dukes, 5 mins from Poipu Beach. 5 stars for sure. go there
