Celiac friendly?



Would not recommend to anyone with a gluten allergy or Celiac disease. I have been to the Burlington location and have always had an amazing experience. Decided to try this new location for a change. The server was not knowledgeable at all on gluten free options or handling. Brought out a regular roll and placed it right in front of me then went to another table to take an order, I went to reach for it and she ran over saying it was a regular roll! Later she told me there was only one gluten free option on the menu for dessert which I knew was incorrect as I had been to another location. About 30 minutes after this visit I got violently ill from a gluten contamination! I spoke with Legal's "safety manager" Marnie about this incident and pretty much was given a song and dance about how they are all trained and she is not sure what happened. She assured me that allergies are important to legal and sent me a $35 complimentary card despite a bill of $150 for that evening.
