    Great menu options and my child with celiac loved her burger! They seemed to take proper precautions. They had gf cookies that are prepared separately. My only question was the tongs used to get them as I didn't ask if they used them on the non gf cookies. Otherwise, great place to go.

    Menu has GF selections noted for easy decisions. The staff is knowledgeable and offered me a sample of delicious corn chowder before I ordered it. The salmon was tasty. They have soft GF cookies and delicious drinks. As a Celiac, my taste buds were tickled! Great customer service, great food, and ambiance.

    Great choice of GF items on the menu. Also like the attention to quality ingredients and good nutrition. October 2017, no separate GF menu. Menu has a number of items marked GF. No GF bread was offered for sandwiches- boo! All flatbreads use GF flatbread though. Feel that there is not as much choice now.

    Daughter has celiac. Spoke with manager and was assured no issue. She knew right away what celiac was. Red flag went up when food delivered to our table as all meals were on the same tray. My daughter really enjoyed her meal but paid for it for two days after as meal had gluten contamination.

    All of the flatbreads are GF and if you ask for a sandwhich they use the flatbread to make it. I was assured that the GF options were seperately made, just tell them you have an "allergy". Great food and service.

    Great burger with gluten free bun, side salad, and some baked sweet potato fries (baked has less chance of cross contamination). I am both gluten and dairy sensitive, and had no problems.

    They accidentally served me a burger with a regular bun instead of the gluten free - I questioned it a few bites in and caught a chef on the way by - the manager comped my meal and they remade the burger. We'll see how sick I get, I'm a little apprehensive at this point. But they've been super nice about it. The sweet potato fries were delicious though, and I was enjoying my burger until I realized that the bread seemed too good to be true. LESSON LEARNED: the gluten free items should be specifically tagged when they come out from the kitchen - if not, ask your server to be sure!! In my case the cashier didn't catch/tag that the meal needed to be gf.

    Food was good. Limited menu, which is fine. Our server/cashier did not know what Celiac was and did not readily know which menu items were gluten free. I had checked this site and reviews before I went, so I felt confident, but I had hoped for a more knowledgable staff. I did not get ill at all, and I'm very sensitive.

    Though the menu seems limited as to what is listed as GF, be sure to ask about other options as they have gf buns and other items that can be made GF. Staff was knowledge about not just gluten free but the importance for those with us who have celiac, this sint a tad diner. The building was open, bright and clean, bonus in my book. We had Kendra as our server, she was not only at the height of professionalism but such a delight to talk with about any but the restaurant. Every patron seemed happy and engaged with their servers on a more personal level as well, perhaps because this was center of historical tour areas, but regardless of motivation, they are a great example of what good customer interfacing employees should be. Highly recommended, the food was not only pleasing to the eyes, but our taste buds as well. And while I'm not a vegetarian, I ordered a fabulous vegetarian taco plate that left me full (but secretly wishing I had more room, it was so good!)

    Terrible. We made sure to inform the employee taking our order that we had Celiac and could not consume gluten. They confirmed that the children’s pasta could be made gluten-free. Another server brought the food to the table and the pasta looked like regular pasta so again I asked if it was GF. The server said it was, and my children begin to eat. A few minutes later, another employee came running out from the kitchen to let us know that it was not GF pasta. My children began crying because they know the effects that gluten has on their body. No one apologized, they just offered to bring us a bowl of Asian-style thin rice noodles instead. I’m not sure how three different employees were unable to catch this mistake at a restaurant claiming to be exceptionally GF friendly.

    Fantastic experience overall; the GM Justin was SUPER helpful/knowledgeable/and friendly. I was lucky he was behind the bar. Only one (VERY) minor complaint, which was rectified with a quick phone call; we ordered two sandwiches on GF, and they came made with two tops and two bottoms. Obviously not a problem in and of itself, I just had to clarify we didn't have two types of bun. I will definitely eat here again next time in Memphis. Thanks, Justin!

    My experience was marginal. I ordered abbot on gf bread it came with two pieces of bacon, two pieces of very thin sliced deli turkey two tomatoes with a smattering of lettuce I was really disappointed it was like a giant piece of bread with hardly any filling. They use udis bread in case you're wondering.

    Unbelievably I was served and ate a sandwich on a regular sandwich roll not the gluten free as ordered. I always reiterate my order is for a "gluten allergy" so wherever the mistake happened, whomever entered it or prepared my order is an awful employee. Managers were all alerted after the fact, they apologized but nothing to make up for their serious mistake.

    Lyfe Kitchen was a lyfe saver during our family weekend vacation to Chicago. Our son was recently diagnosed as celiac and this was our first vacation where he had to eat out 100% of the time. We stayed at the nearby Doubletree and were pleasantly surprised that the Lyfe kitchen was a block away. Our son ate two meals here both were delicious and 100% GF he had no symptoms after eating here. I would say it was a little pricey for the entire family but I really didn't care since he felt great after eating both meals.

My fish tacos were good. Fish was just a little dry. Our 12 yo celiac daughter had the spicy shrimp pasta. She loved it as well. My husband had the Chicken and Avocado Sandwich. Our daughter had no stomach issues. Loved how a great portion of the items are gluten free no matter what like the Shrimp Pasta. Uploaded pictures of our dishes as well. Will visit again soon!
