We had a great time, great food, awesome service, and recommend sitting outside
Came here after another restaurant wasn't celiac friendly. I am so glad that one wasn't. Simply excellent. My son with celiac said best pizza ever!
I am severely allergic to wheat, lactose intolerant, and a vegetarian. Had an amazing pizza!!! only the 2nd place I've found so far with vegan cheese on a gluten free pizza
I was here last week and had a pizza out for the first time in over two years and it was FANTASTIC. They use smart flour crust and I had green pepper and bacon on mine. Not only that but it was a good sized pizza (12") and I was able to take some home.
The best gluten free pizza I've ever had, hands down! Dedicated kitchen space and trained staff, so no worries about cross contamination! Mellow Mushroom is one of my go to places in St. Augustine every time I'm there, wish there was one closer to me!
This is the best gluten free pizza that I have ever had. Everything is prepared separately and is free of cross contamination. I am very sensitive and had no problems at all. The staff is very well trained and my waiter was wonderful. The waiter reported to us that many people with out allergies come in for the gluten free pizza because it is their favorite. I highly recommend Mellow Mushroom.
They just get it. They handle the GF pizzas in a separate area. You can have hummus with veggies too. Great atmosphere and someplace my son who has Celiac can go and eat with friends and he's safe.
Excellent GF White Pizza and also GF Chesse Pizza! Great Manager Amber and Bartender Tim! We'll be back!!
Gluten free pizza with pesto sauce, talk about yum!!
Very good pizza! Despite the other reviews I loved the crust. Will come back.
I'm super sensitive to cross contamination and did not get sick. They go to great lengths to keep their pies safe (dedicated space, change apron and gloves, etc). Great pizza, great staff. A definite must go!
Service was great. Pizza was good but not great. I was hoping for better crust on it. The crust was really thin and soggy in the middle (although I like and am used to the thin gluten free crust). It was one of the better gluten free pizzas I've had, that's for sure, just was hoping for a bit better crust from a place that was rated 5 stars.
Excellent gluten free pizza!
smart flour pizza crust...the kids approved! and I enjoyed the specialty pizza with the GF crust! would go back :-)
GF pizza was great. Kitchen staff has been trained on how to handle food for celiacs. Server was also well informed.
Awesome service. My wife is G-F and we're both dairy free. This pizza place has Daiya Cheese and GF crust. It is great. It is served by someone with gloves and the pizza is cooked on a special tray to keep it clear of other crusts.
Love their pizza!!
The gf pizzas are tasty and there are several options. They have Angry Orchard Ale on tap.
Very good pizza crust!!! Have a selection of gf pizza which I ordered from. Staff was very good at answering all my question. separate area for gf food prep all utensil and pans gf specific.
4 stars pending 5, once we come back (pretty sure it is inevitable, the mushroom pizza had my husband licking his fingers, sadly the toppings aren't guaranteed GF ) I had the GF Kosmic Karma. The crust had good chew and flavor, and the toppings were tasty despite my congestion and inability to properly smell. I definitely recommend this place.
Pizza was a definite 5stars. I'm not GF, but my husband, who is, and I shared a pizza. We both thought it was great! I did, however, have to take away a star for the difficulty in getting there and poor parking options. It took us so long to travel from I-95 (8mi: 105 min round trip) we called in the pizza to go and just ate it in the car. Good thing, too , bc they were packed with a long waiting line and we couldn't 'to find a place to park even just to grab our to-go order!
incredible experience and my first GFDF pizza in 3 yrs
No offense, but this place was a joke for the price. My teenager has Celiac's. Pizza wasn't that great and for $22+ it wasn't worth the rest of our meals to sit through. She said it compared to Udi's frozen. Our bill for a family of 4 was right around $120+ with appetizers and drinks, not including tip. None of us finished our food due to taste. My 7 year old wanted just cheese pizza and it came on garlic bread, which she hates and was not advertised as that on children's menu. Our service was the other issue. It took TWO HOURS and most of the time we were flagging our waitress asking her for things versus her anticipating need: drinks, plates picked up, orders placed and not yet received. We all got our meals at different times. We were on patio, therefore out of mind out of sight, I guess. This place is not worth the $$$.
I have been here several times, and my rating is an average of all of the visits. This location has a small, dedicated space that they use to prepare the pizzas. I have never gotten sick from the pizzas. The gluten free pizzas are really good if they are served just out of the oven. (The gluten free pizzas typically come out at a very different time than other pizzas at your table.) If the gluten free pizza is rushed/"flown"due to a mistake or a possible contamination issue, the pizza is not very good.
Definitely a hit or miss type of place. The actually care they take in preventing contamination seems to depend on how busy the restaurant is. And it's super expensive for a thin, crusty pizza.
Extremely pleased! We ordered take out -!My non gf son ordered a small pizza and I ordered the gf veg pizza. When we picked up the pizza left w a large and small box/ my son said the large was mine... Couldn't be, he must've missed heard.... Nope! He was right the gf was the bigger pizza! Thin crust but larger diameter than you typical gf. I'm eating it now, and it tastes delicious. I feel 99.9% confident this is safe for Celiacs- of course I'll modify this post if anything changes tonight!
We had dinner here tonight. We have eaten at many Mellow Mushrooms in different states and never had an issue. We ordered two gluten free pizzas (cheese and house special). They were both wonderful and our celiac daughter had no issues and didn't get sick. We dined with some friends who aren't gluten free and our pizzas were brought out separate from their food. Will eat at this location again.
One of the best GF pizza crusts I've had. The menu explains how they prepare their GF pizza, so it lets you feel safe. They also have GF beer & delicious salads. We came here twice in two days because no other GF-friendly place was open for lunch.
Unfortunately, as a Celiac, I cannot recommend this specific Mellow. First time I ate here, I was sick before leaving the restaurant. Second time around, sick halfway home. Both times, I specified that I had Celiac, and asked if it would be prepped and cooked safely. I was assured it would be. My digestive tract says otherwise. The Raleigh MM, however, I've had zero issue with (to date).
I have eaten their twice without any problems. I always get a salad since I cannot have any grains at all. Staff has been knowledgeable and helpful. My kids have eaten their GFDF pizza with their vegan cheese and really enjoyed it without problems despite previous reviews on here. I suspect they have made positive changes based on previous feedback. Not the safest location for those who are most sensitive but it is a workable option.
Gf pizza was delicious! Friendly staff.
Mellow Mushroom now has a gluten free menu and the crust is fantastic. You can get one of several speciality pizzas or build your own with gluten-free toppings. There is also an in-depth description on the menu of the type of crust used and their handling practices to ensure there is no cross-contamination i.e. cook changes gloves and apron, special pan is used so crust isn't in contact with stone, and gluten-free ingredients are kept separate from gluten items. The server seemed well-versed in what was required. The restaurant seemed to really take celiac needs seriously.
Gluten free pizza crust was delicious! They actually had an entire GF pizza menu complete with specialty options or build your own. There were probably 15 different topping options (at least) and 3 different sauce choices. Additionally the menu had a paragraph about how they handle GF orders to avoid cross contamination. I had to laugh because the GF menu said at the top "You are no longer second class citizens." I was in heaven :)
