Very good service. They had a separate gluten free menu and were very clear that they didn’t contaminate. The bread was delicious and so was the food.
The waiter brought me warm spongy delicious gluten-free buns and Parmesan dipping sauce - and I was in heaven! That alone was enough - so delicious! Then my hamburger in a gluten-free bun came, and I was so happy to enjoy that rare treat. The staff are very attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable. They told me the fries are not gluten-free so that was a disappointment - I hope they can change that in future. Overall, it was a wonderful experience! I’ll definitely go back!
Went on Monday for lunch with 6 people including my 5 year old celiac child. Was impressed with the breadth of the GF menu. She was thrilled to have some GF bread. Unfortunately, while she was eating the GF macaroni, I realized there was a curly noodle in the middle of her GF penne. The kitchen said they think a noodle from a regular mac and cheese just accidentally slipped into her dish but I don't see how that is possible if any sort of basic precautions are being made. She woke up in the middle of the night with cramps. We will likely try another location of this chain again due to the broad options but I was pretty disappointed in their safe food handling.
The gluten-free bread was the best i have ever had! I ordered the Tomato basil soup and the gluten-free chicken quesadillas which were absolutely delicious!
The quality of the food has gone down a lot.
Food was good and staff was knowledgable. The manager brought our our daughters food and talked to us about gluten free preparation. it was great and she didn't get sick!
I got a carry-out and the pasta was already cold when I got it and the chicken was just a big over-cooked slab. The sauce was really salty and they put the potatoes in the same compartment so it was drowning in salty, lemon sauce.
The food was great, plenty of gluten free options, including dessert. The waitstaff was knowledgeable and very considerate about Celiac. They brought out gluten free bread to start with--it was awesome. My young daughter is the one who has Celiac, so she was disappointed not to see gf fries, but they said they could make some for us in a pan. It was very busy, yet the manager came over and let us know he knew we were eating from the gf menu and they would take it seriously and pay special attention to our food preparation. The combination of their attention to gf needs and delicious food means we will definitely be back!
Wonderful attention to needs of food challenges.
Great food, fairly extensive list of entrees, gluten free rolls and bread that's pretty good, and a lot of attention paid to my celiac.
This place is awesome. Very well educated staff and managers come and speak to you and actually bring all of the GF food. Strong processes. Great menu. We will be back many many times. Finally a place in Bethesda with a GF menu.
YOU GUYS. This place is unreal. Fresh, delicious bread, ridiculously good food, and even a dessert option or two. I was so grateful to have such an amazing meal I was nearly in tears. And they were VERY careful, even announcing with my entree, "no gluten has been near this dish." Can't wait to come back.
The bread!! Amazing! It is so good and appreciated. My whole family loved it. I got the penne with seafood and lobster sauce. It was good but the pasta had the weird after taste. Carrot cake for desert was solid.
A perfect dining experience for me is good food, good price, gf dedicated menu, and the manager bringing my food to me with the verbal assurance that it's 100% GF! I got all of that here!
I’ve seen great reviews about this restaurant, but I honestly wasn’t impressed. I don’t think the gluten free menu was very big. They advertised as having gluten free chicken parmesan, but all it consisted of was chicken with some melted cheese on top. The food was bland and lacked flavor. There are better places than this to go for gf dining.
OMG the Gluten Free bread is SO yummy! So soft, delicious and spongy... not dry and crumbly like most GF bread. The GF Chicken Piccata was Awesome!! They have a separate GF menu (orange) with lots of GF options... even Dessert! I posted photos but not sure where they went.
Appetizers, many meal selections and dessert options all gluten free. Also GF bread and dipping oil/parm cheese at the table. Waiter was very knowledgeable. Not everyone at our table ordered GF. Manager brought out all GF dishes to ensure they were correct and not cross contaminated.
The staff was very accommodating, even had delicious gluten free starter bread! Wide variety of food on their GF menu, including pastas that tasted like regular pasta. Passionate about allergies and very knowledgeable about celiacs. Would recommend to anyone gluten free or not, very good experience!
Soooooo good for celiac! We had the GF pasta 4-cheese with the sausage option. Didn’t get sick and it was good! lots, Lots, LOTS of options! A fantastic place which is cognizant of celiac and GF people!
Best GF experience ever! Very big GF friendly menu with GF knowledgeable and accommodating staff!
Joe’s has an extensive GF menu, GF bread and GF rolls (both caramelized onion), and GF pasta, however, depending on the wait staff and how busy it is, you need to be careful to ensure you meal is actually prepared GF. I have had a few instances where I have asked the staff who delivers my meal if it is both GF/DF and they were unsure about one or both allergens. Ultimately, an awesome menu but you need to be proactive about advocating for yourself.
It has been 3 months and I must say Joe’s has done an awesome job at redeeming themselves. I contacted the head office and they were wonderful at addressing the issue ( see below). I have eaten there 4 times since June. They put in the computer that I need to speak to the manager before ordering due to gluten. The manager makes sure the kitchen is aware and then he brings the food out. I don’t know if there has been a change to the kitchen, but in the past 8 months, I have had issues with cross contamination. Twice with barley in my food, which they said was due to a cutting board to close to the gluten food, and tonight I found a piece of pasta in my green beans. The manager said chances were that it was regular pasta. I loved this place and trusted them. Love the place! They actually have a menu that has quite a few choices. They seem to understand about celiac and gluten intolerance. Each time my meal was brought out separately.
An entire separate menu dedicated to people with gluten allergy/intolerance. I felt so welcome! They even have gluten free bread to snack on. My waitress was very knowledgeable about cross contamination and gluten in general.
This place is fantastic!! There is an entire Gluten Free Menu. A full menu not just salads or burgers! Chicken parm, scallops, lots of G F pasta plus lots of good sides plus desserts not just ice cream. Staff is knowledgeable about GF. And kitchen understands cross contamination. Very good will come again. Fresh food nothing canned. Prices are good considering the large portions. Will not be disappointed
My daughter, mother and myself are wheat and gluten sensitive. My daughter also has a dairy allergy. We received Excellent service. The staff was very accommodating. Our waitress was knowledgeable and friendly. This was the best GF meal we have had eating out in a long time. Will be returning here soon.
Amazing! Our waitress was so accommodating when she found out that I was the GF one out of our party of 6. She brought me GF bread to start and even asked if I needed separate dipping oil. When I ordered she verified that it was gluten free. They even had a separate person drop off my meal and he verified again it was gluten free. I’ve never been out to eat and felt so normal! Such a great experience!
Love this place! And, the food is yummy. The carrot cake is amazing.
I've been here twice this spring and have unfortunately had cross-contamination symptoms both times. The first time I visited, my GF bread was delivered with obvious residue from the regular onion bread on the base of the roll - it seems like they may not know to change their gloves. The second visit, I opted to forgo the bread, but felt mildly ill 24-48 hours later, which is my usual response to cross contamination. I'm extremely sensitive, so those who are not may have better luck!!
Incredibly celiac and allergy friendly. There are few celiac friendly restaurants in Woodbridge, but this is a safe place with knowledgeable staff. They have a large GF menu, and if you say you have celiac the manager/chef will probably come by or may even wait on you. Several good experiences. Did have one waitress once who was a little off her game since it was a very busy late night and slipped up with regular bread, but I checked before eating it since I’m careful, but it was a good reminder to be extra vigilant.
Amazing GF menu selection: appetizers, burfgers, pasta, dessert. Had a hard time choosing but went with 4 cheese pasta with added steak tips. Bread and dip were delicious.
