I tried eating some of their gluten sensitive food, not gluten free as they don't have a dedicated part of the kitchen, and I became very ill. I'm not sure if it's because not all the elements involved, sauce, meats, etc., aren't gluten free or if there's too much cross contamination but I do not recommend eating here.

The GF menu is minimal. CC is high. Unless you’re eating a plain salad, I wouldn’t be comfortable eating here.

This is not recommend for celiac! Cross contamination is part of the problem here. Also, GF pasta is boiled in the same water as the wheat pasta.

Their gluten free pasta tastes great and they are very helpful in making arrangements for me, they bring out croutons separate from the salad, less bread sticks so it's not as tempting (lol), and most dishes can be substituted with gluten free pasta.

The manager came over to explain that they were remaking my meal bc they didn't prepare it properly the first time... And he apologized for the delay. I didn't mind bc I'd rather wait than get sick. But it didn't matter... Within a few hours I was sick and knew I was glutened.

Has a limited menu with disclaimers. The manager said he would make sure it was free of wheat etc., however I became very bloated and had much discomfort. I think the entire kitchen staff are foreign.

They did have a small gluten free menu. Our server’s attitude was :’ Don’t know, don’t care’ when asked about ingredients.

I had a great experience here! I called earlier in the day and inquired about their GF/celiac protocols. I talked to Jeremy and he let me know to let my server know I had celiac (state as a severe “allergy”) when I order from the GF menu, and to ask for the manager after ordering. When I arrived, I did as instructed. Not too long after that the manager came by. She assured me that they have strict safety protocols in place, including separate cooking area, changing gloves etc. She said that she would also supervise them preparing my dish, in order to make sure all protocols were followed. They brought my dish out first and checked on me multiple times! I am an extremely sensitive celiac and did not have any issues or reactions from eating there. Will definitely go again!
