    Asked if the Bermuda fish chowder was gluten free and was assured it was. It came to me with two pieces of bread on top. Our meal came very piecemeal and we had to ask whether my son's clams and frites had gotten on the order. Arugula salad was very salty.

    The waitress assured me that she was knowledgeable about the gluten free aspect of the menu (not a separate or tagged menu). I had it narrowed down to 2 fish dishes and asked what she thought. She recommended the fish with the curry coconut sauce which I love! The people I was with had bread and appetizers; once that was cleared, the waitress came out and said that the curry sauce was pre-made and contained gluten. She wanted to know what other sauce would I like. I told her that I would rather have the other fish then and she was obviously very displeased. She repeated 4 times that the sea bass was plated and the chef just needed to know which sauce I wanted. I truly didn't want that fish with any other sauce (I dont like watermelon on fish). She stormed off and got the manager. The people I was with are not gluten free and looked at me like I was crazy. It made for a very uncomfortable situation!!! It got better once the manager came over, he took the sea bass off the menu and had the chef make up a spicy butter for me. The waitress was extremely curt after that and I would never go back because it has upset me. The fish was not very good and one of the people who were with me didn't care for his meal either.

    We had Bridget as our waitress and she was very friendly and made our visit memorable. She was very educated on the menu and the kitchen was very accommodating. Beautiful outdoor seating and gorgeous atmosphere. Food was very good!

    They do not have a gluten free menu, but the staff was very knowledgeable. They informed me that the majority of the menu was gluten free and the few items that weren't could be altered to accommodate my allergy. Of course the fried items and chowder could not be changed.
