    Upon telling the server I was celiac they immediately got the manager. Who washed all items used to cook my food twice. I've never received such VIP celiac service. Absolutely amazing--yummy too

    Delicious gf food! The onion-baked bulky rolls are amazing and might make you cry if you've been pining for good-quality bread since going gf. The online app is terribly problematic: don't use it. You can call in as early as 9am tho they dont open until 11:30am

    On 10.3.15, I ordered the Gluten free green machine pesto pasta to go. While my meal was labeled gf and with my first name, within an hour of eating, I was violently ill with obvious gluten poisoning. It became so bad, I passed out and my husband called 911. I was in the ER for hours as they attempted to control my symptoms and rehydrate. The next day, weak but functioning, I called and described my meal. Both the chef and the manager confirmed that the gf pasta should have been a penne style, while what I ate was a curly cavatapi (sp?) full of gluten. They sent me $75 gift card, as if I would ever trust them again. Not to mention that it barely covered the cost of our meal, to say nothing of copays for ER and ambulance ride. No one ever followed up with me, either to discuss how we can put checks and balances in place so this never happens to anyone else. Appalling. Please do not take your life into your hands by eating here.

    The caramelized onion roll is really good, but I wouldn't go there for anything else. The fries are not GF, and the garlic mashed potatoes that I had to eat instead tasted like they came out of a box. Definitely not one of my best gluten-free experiences. I definitely will not be going back.

    There is a separate gluten free menu with a variety of meal options, including burgers on GF buns (no fries though). They serve warm, GF onion bread when the wheaty bread comes out, and provide separate dipping sauce. They seem to 'get it' as far as preventing cross contamination goes.

    Every time we eat here they manage to screw up our order. I know it's hard to be picky but if you're going to bother with it, at least eat there rather than get takeout; you may end up waiting a half an hour but at least they can fix their mistake if they make one (they will). Whether or not the new dish is any good is a crap shoot.

    I wish I had a gluten tester like the other reviewer, because after eating here I ended up becoming VERY ILL for a long time and the only thing I could think of was they must've fed me straight up gluten. Yes, the way they behave in the front of house make you feel safe, and the gf selection is huge, but whatever is actually going on in the kitchen is NOT safe for Celiacs in my opinion. I don't think I've ever been sicker in my entire life like I was after eating here. I struggled with writing this review, but I feel like reviews like this are important because places like this are why I never eat out anymore.

    I'm so sorry but I'm going to have to give this rating. The menu looked great; huge gf. The food looked good. The staff was amazing. Chef and 2 managers talked to us. First dish came back with gluten after testing with Nima. 5/6 of us had already eaten. Tested next 5 dishes. All had some gluten (one was high). Tested this later with EZ gluten strips. Same result. May be from airborne flour. They are trying very hard and want to do this right but something went wrong. 4 of us had small reactions the next day but were minimum bc we only ate one thing. Could have been worse.

    If I could give this restaurant 100 stars, I would! Impressed from the moment when we walked in the door and were automatically offered a gluten free menu. When we sat down, the waiter noticed the gluten free menu and asked if I had an allergy and explained that they clean the kitchen station and use clean utensils to cook the gluten free items. All of the staff was extremely friendly and personable. The manager, Will, was a very nice gentleman and made sure that we were happy with our food. The gluten free bread and dip was absolutely delicious! I had the chicken picatta and it was very good as well. This will be our go to when we are in the area!

    My wife and I went there for lunch. My wife has Celiac and it is often very difficult to dine out on Cape Cod for that reason. This place was great, starting with a dedicated Gluten free menu. There are many excellent choices. The waitress, nothing that my wife had the gluten free menu asked if we wanted bread and informed my wife that they had gluten free roll if she would like that. Two different servers brought the bread and roll to the table with different shaped dishes containing their dipping sauce so as to avoid cross contamination. The same routine was followed when presenting the entrees. They definitely pay attention and the food was great. Bravo for the attention to detail.

I asked for gluten-free bread and within minutes, a different server came over and put bread on the table stating "here is your gluten-free bread". It was regular bread....... waitress and Manager both apologized but that doesn't fix the problem ......will never go back. Besides all that, Service was awful!
