Wonderful lunch at Lillian’s today. So impressed with their knowledge of GF dining. Wonderful options on their menu, both in the daily specials & every-day offerings. Was even told that many things not labeled GF on the menu could be adapted to makes them so. Dedicated fryer meant we could have calamari (battered with chickpea flour)....delicious. My daughter (the only Celiac in our group of 5) had the salmon tacos & raved about them. I had the falafel, which could easily be made GF if I had asked for no flatbread. We didn’t have room for dessert, but were told they gave GF desserts, as well. Looking forward to dining here again (and bringing along my husband, who also has Celiac disease & has been craving fried seafood).

Found them through this app since I have Hashi's Disease. Comfort food that's crazy good. They have a dedicated fryer, & our waiter, Lorenzo, was very clear & knowledgeable on what's in the food. Hands down the best Gluten Free fried chicken wings, salmon tacos, onion rings, & french fries. Hubby enjoyed his burger. Definitely visiting again when in CT

Worked here before I was diagnosed with celiac disease and even then I would eat all the GF options because they were delicious. Can’t even tell they’re gluten free! Also I know firsthand that they take allergies very seriously, the cooks are trained well and if it says GF it doesn’t touch anything else!

I ate here a few weeks ago with my entire family. There were 2 celiacs in my party, neither got sick. The menu had a variety of dishes, including several apps and DESSERTS! It was incredible. I have only been once, but would go back again.

Delicious food and a dedicated fryer. My husband and I had a yummy meal here and we didn't have any issues. My husband got steak, fries and onion rings which he said were great. I had salmon and a salad which were also good.

Small menu, but everything we ordered was delicious. Waitress was knowledgable and really friendly. They have a dedicated fryer for gluten free options. We will come back next time we are in the area!

This is the second time I’ve eaten here, they are amazing! Dedicated gf fryer, batter, seasoning! I’m in love with this Cafe! Pricey for me since I usually cook from scratch and not out of a box. So worth it to be spoiled by the phenomenal food, rockstar staff/service, and the environment makes you feel like your on vacation. Highly recommend steak frites!!

When I told our server I had celiac disease, he nodded and said the chef has a child with gluten sensitivity and takes it very seriously. GF items were clearly marked on the menu. I had the sea scallops tacos (one of their specials) - amazingly delicious. I felt safe eating there and can officially and happily report (now that it’s the following morning) that I did not get glutened.

This place is amazing! I have been coming here since they opened 4+/- years ago. Their service and quality of food is great and consistent, have never been disappointed. They have their regular menu AND a daily Specials menu. They use seasonal ingredients. All their fried items are gluten free. The onion rings are dipped in chickpea flour...very yum! The gluten free dishes are label with "GF". Choose from Soups, Seafoods, salads, meats and desserts!
