I ordered the Dover Sole. I had seven in my party and the food was tasty but not epic, and considering the prices, it should have been. Being a Celiac, I find that the service is most important. The reassurance and the awareness of the measures needed to be taken are key to actually enjoying anything I eat. If I do not like the food, then fine, my world hasn’t ended. If I am panicked before putting the food in my mouth, well, forget it. Why did I even go out? If you get both good service pertaining to Celiac’s and good food? Well, you have found gold. The service here was terrible. I came here three years ago and this place was a different experience 100 percent. I raved in reviews about it. Last night, however, our server hands down ruined it; when in my opinion, having a Celiac at the table, he should have tapped into their menu of almost all gluten free dinner entrees. He should have lauded their kitchen over gluten free measures and lit up over their safety as well as flavor. For a Celiac, a place like this restaurant is what we wait months to find and enjoy- if those parts of safety and flavor are in place- so that we may have the kind of experience non-Celiac people have at nice restaurants more frequently. He just blew it. He made me feel none of this. I questioned the safety and was very disappointed with the unexciting menu options-including no gluten free dessert-as sorbet does not count, and the taste and presentation did not meet expectations for where this level of restaurant should be and was three years ago. The food fell flat along with the terrible service. We planned our trip here based on this restaurant and the experience we had here three years ago. We have reservations everyday and will be cancelling them. I would rather cook in our condo if that tells you anything.

100% gluten free restaurant!! Yes please :) waiter was fabulous. Didn't have to worry about cross contamination at dinner as it is fully GF. Apparently brunch does contain gluten items but I'm celiac, sensitive and didn't get sick at all. Highly recommend !

Celiac friendly?

I was only able to go for breakfast but their buffet actually had lots of gluten free options. they also brought me gluten free toast and even offered to make gluten free pancakes. from what I understand, their dinner menu is 100% gluten free, but I haven't been at dinner.
