    My 4 year old with celiac had the supposed gluten free pasta with Parm Cheese and stopped eating after 3 bites. As soon as we got home he had diarrhea. Never going back.

    The food was great here. The staff was very knowledgeable about gluten free eating. Would be nice if they had an independent fryer. Lots of gluten free choices. We really enjoyed the gf bread with oil dip.

    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.

    I ordered take out, and there were so many options! The food was delicious. I’m not sure if the bread roll I got was GF so I didn’t chance it, but it looked good! Edit: came back to eat, the roll was amazing!! Such good dip too.

    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.

    Have ordered Take-out twice now. I like how there is a separate gluten free menu and also an option to mark “no gluten” when ordering online. Forno-baked chicken quesadilla and steak wedge salad are both delicious.

    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.

Passionate about allergies and very knowledgeable about celiacs. Would recommend to anyone gluten free or not, very good experience!

    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.

    Separate menu, free GF bread (not bad). Most items are gf replacements though. I’d like to see less replacement bread and more options that are naturally GF. Burger wasn’t bad. I’d go back I think.

    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.

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

    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!

    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!!

    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!

    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.

    We were excited to go here after reading the reviews but were sorely disappointed. The utensils and plates were dirty, our waters had floaters in them and my celiac daughter was ill right after she ate. She had the gf bread which a piece looked like it had some green mold on it (she didn’t eat it)and had a hamburger and fruit. Hamburger was not good and bun was average. Not impressed with serving staff either. Would not recommend d for celiacs.
