I spoke to the owner years ago about having farro on the GF menu and was assured he’d correct it. Sad to see another, more recent review that states it’s still on there. Avoid for anything other than drinks.

Menu states a salmon item is gluten free, but it comes with farro, which is not gluten free. Confidence in their knowledge of gluten ingredients is low accordingly.

The gluten free pasta here is cooked in the same water as gluten pasta. I’d avoid.

We went there based on reviews with our children bc my daughter has celiac. They advised they had no gf buns for the hamburgers and the fries was made in a shared fryer. We were very disappointed and left.

Good food, attentive and knowledgeable staff. Basic “no gluten ingredients” info marked on the menu, but they also have a separate GF “no/minimal cross-contamination” menu with a few different options for those who are more sensitive. Busy during peak hours; make a reservation.

Lots of GF choices. Ribs for appetizer were smoky good. Sauce not sweet and very good. Loved my lamb chops and wood smoked brussels sprouts with bacon were excellent. Service very good. They made sure we had plenty of water.

Visited Oak and Almond with several friends who eat there regularly. Gluten free and vegetarian are denoted on the menu. Everyone at the table ordered the lamb chops, and I now know why. So delicious!

Oak and Almond has a neat vibe and is a no-brainier for gluten free eaters.

They have markings on the menu for everything that can be made gluten free or is naturally gluten free. The food was really excellent too. I've heard they do hand made gluten free pasta there but it wasn't on the menu when I went, will have to go another time.
