I wish I had read the reviews before agreeing to meet friends here. They have a sort of GF menu, but seem to imply that they don't guarantee not to cross contaminate. I would not recommend for anyone celiac. Forgot to reread my own review above. Still true. I haven’t gotten sick before here, but menu still listed as only “gluten sensitive.” I’ve been glad that they’re open fairly late, but the service is sometimes not great—bartenders and servers sometimes more focused on cleaning (and socializing with each other).

Update 7/30: Ate here again following their gluten sensitive menu. Got a delicious salad with fresh cooked shrimp. I still need to try the pizza but I'm on a diet! || Their menu says "gluten sensitive" but the waitstaff seems more knowledgeable than the last reviews have indicated. I got the sesame crusted tuna salad which was very fresh and delicious and also ate the gluten sensitive option of the spinach and artichoke dip. I didn't get sick. Make sure to ask for straws though since they are on the "no plastic straws" train that is pretty popular right now and will only give you paper straws if you ask. Next time I'll try the gluten free pizza. Wood fire stoves are usually hot enough that they burn the gluten particles left by other pizzas but if you are extremely sensitive you might want to stick to the entrees especially on busy times when cross-contamination is more likely to happen.

I’ve been here about 6 times in the past year. I must start by saying BEWARE of their “gluten sensitive” dough. I was told the dough itself is not certified gluten free nor is it prepared in a dedicated space/on dedicated equipment. Makes me wonder why they even bother offering it. They do have good salads - I like the Apple + Pear Salad and the Blackened Chicken + Kale Bowl. Their minestrone soup was mediocre at best. They once made the salmon with just plain steamed veggies for me (I can’t have dairy, so no mashed potatoes for me), and I enjoyed that. The atmosphere is nice, but the service has been awful the past 4 of the past 6 times I’ve been there. I’m a pretty laid back diner and think I’m pretty understanding when it comes to waiting for service/food, but this place definitely tests my patience. We’ve frequently had to request utensils (after food has been brought to the table), napkins, refills on waters, etc... Things that diners really shouldn’t have to ask for at a “$$-$$$” establishment. The only reason I’m a repeat visitor is because my husband loves their pizzas and in the past, it had been a great place to take out-of-town visitors with no dietary restrictions. I don’t know if we’ll be back.

I’m celiac and went as part of a group - They told me their “gluten sensitive” pizza is cooked in the oven all together with regular pizza without a separate pan or any other separation. So I had a bunless burger with their side potatoes- very tasty but seemed like there was a lot of potential for cross-contamination. Silver lining was the server seemed knowledgeable and I felt fine afterwards. Not great for people with celiac though, and for the price, I wouldn’t choose to go there if I was picking the place.

This place is ridiculous! No understanding of Gluten-free or celiac friendly. All food is cooked and prepared in shared places/cooking pots, etc. I don't even understand how they can claim gluten sensitive if there is cross-contamination. Oh Lordy.

Ordered off the gluten sensitive menu, ordered short ribs. Came with flour based gravy all over it. They acknowledged and took it back. Beware!

They had a nice gf menu, although there was no gf pizza on the menu. My waiter asked me if i wanted gf pizza and that it what i was looking for! So if you ask the waiter for gf pizza, they have it, but for some reason it is not on the menu. The pizza was really great and i had a great overall experience there.

Their gluten free menu is going under a lot of changes. I was there three or four weeks ago, and there were some things on the gf menu that were clearly wrong. The chef came out to talk to me, looked at the menu, and says, "well, this is all wrong! HERE is what is gluten free. I'm sorry. The menu is undergoing changes." He whipped up a delicious salmon dish. Halfway through the meal, the chef came back out to see how I was doing! I didn't get sick, and the food was exquisite. I will go back, but I will give them some time to sort themselves out.

Surprised to hear this has a gluten-free menu. I ate there last night, asked about gluten-free and the waitress provided no information at all.
