    went here for the first time last week. Where do I start? The atmosphere is just awesome and the view as well. Had a lengthy chat with the bartender and was informed that anything with flour and fried is done with rice flour, so the fryers are 100% GF. we opted for apps. the clam chowder was THE best that I've ever had, it has a smokey flavor so if you don't smokey then you may not agree. also had the crab cakes and calimari. Both Awesome!!!

    97% of the menu is gluten free with only a handful of items that aren't. Very knowledgeable staff in multiple areas of the venue (there are two bar/lounge areas in addition to multiple dining areas). Food was excellent. They take limited reservations but will text you when your table is ready.

    Before placing my order, I informed the server that I had celiac disease and made sure that the crabcakes I was ordering were gluten-free. I was a bit nervous when a different server brought them out from the kitchen and did not announce anything about them being prepared gluten-free, but decided I was being too anxious and ate them. They were very good. However, when we ordered the pot de creme for dessert it again was delivered by a different server and had a cookie stuck in it. As she was turning to leave I asked her if the cookie was gluten-free, and she replied that if I had stated I had celiac disease, it probably was, but she would go ask the kitchen. This server never came back, and we sat staring at the dessert for almost 10 minutes, before spotting our original server and asking her to check. She said that even if the cookie wasn't gluten-free, it had not been swirled around in the pot de creme (not comforting). She also went to go check with the kitchen, came back out shortly afterwards, whisked the dessert away with many apologies, and brought us a new one. Considering that the owner's wife has celiac disease and the menu claims to be almost entirely gluten-free, I was very uncomfortable with my experience and the training of the servers. The incident with the dessert made me worry that my entrée was also contaminated. I did not get sick, but I also did not enjoy myself.

    90% gluten free, the Celiac way! An understanding and dedication to providing a gluten free meal, the staff is also genuinely concerned and attentive. They even have a dedicated GF chef and of course, separate GF kitchen. The food...fabulous! Fresh and artful plates that call for my return and an atmosphere that can't be beat. Casual and so Portsmouth, also artfully becoming my favorite choice of restaurants.

    I am insanely excited! it was explained to me that the owners wife is celiac. 90% of the menu is gf. They even have a dedicated fryer. Our server, Jess, extremely knowledgeable and attentive. I am also vegetarian, and it's the best black bean burger I've had in forever. Husband had fish and chips, he reports as excellent as well. Am about to become a regular!

    Really great! I was so happy with a menu that had more gluten free options than any restaurant I have eaten ate since being gluten free. The food was great, service was excellent and the location is fabulous with a great water view and a sophisticated atmosphere. Well done class act!

    Very excellent lunch on the deck overlooking the harbor! 90% of the menu can be made GF, buns are dairy-free as well! My server was very well knowledgable about not only GF but other allergy concerns as well, will definitely go back for dinner/apps one night for live music on the deck with their fire pits!

    Went in July and was excited because I thought I could finally get a cheeseburger with GF bun AND French fries at the same restaurant...I thought they had a dedicated fryer. Unfortunately when I asked my waitress she said "actually all we do is fry the French fries in a separate spot in the fryer...but it's fried in the same oil as everything else." Very disappointing. My cheeseburger and GF bun were good but no French fries. And no GF beer options either.

    Went here back when I was first Diagnosed. The Chef actually came out and took down a list of all of the Foods I could not have. It was one of the Greatest experiences I've ever had at a Restaurant.
