Their gluten free menu is definitely better than it used to be. I ordered the chicken park and it was delicious! And I had no reaction!

Limited choices, average food, server completely oblivious. Placed an order, was assured it was gluten free. Just as I was about to take the first bite the manager came over and grabbed my plate. Turned out server was wrong and the kitchen prepared and sent it out even though it was ordered as a gluten free meal knowing it was not. I would have been in the hospital had it not been caught. Very negligent on both the server and the kitchen.

I tried to order Alfredo sauce which is very easy to make. But the waiter said "maybe we could wash off the red sauce", I was very disappointed when the waiter said the GF food comes in frozen!!! This deserves no rating.

I had better luck combining items from the regular menu with GF pasta, than I did with the GF menu. All they offer is over cooked GF pasta with red sauce. I could stay home for that. Overall poor understanding of GF and how cooking GF pasta isn't the same as regular pasta. This is a restaurant that makes me feel sad about all the things I can't eat.

I got the steak and broccoli and had some salad sans croutons. I don’t blame the establishment necessary because I had read so much about the cross contamination and still went for it.

Every dish came back as if ordered on the typical fashion with gluten. Mistakes happen, but it was clear the kitchen and even the server had no awareness of gluten. It’s what I expected and went because a friend wanted to go so I was fine with it. I don’t get extremely ill but could tell there was cross contamination the next day.

Never had a cross contamination. The pasta is great. More gluten free options would be nice.

Horrible!!! I have celiac disease and explained that to the waiter. She explained they were great with allergies… then proceeded to bring the salad with croutons when I asked for them without. I got my pasta and while eating it I found a normal noodle in it. I was so sick last night and feel horrible today.

They cook all the noodles in the same water. Even the "gluten free" ones. The manager has no idea about gluten free allergies either. I've talked with one of the two higher managers. I would not trust it. The most recent review by “Angela” or the blond lady that give this place five stars is not celiac. Possibly gluten-intolerant, but if she had pasta, then she had noodles that are gluten free, but made in the same boiling water as every other kind of noodles that do contain gluten. If you are celiac, please do not eat here. Their menu only says “gluten-friendly” and if you don’t believe me about the noodles, then click the part on this app that shows the menu and read one of the first few numbers up at the top of the nutritional/allergen menu and see for yourself.

Horrible experience!! The waiter said they had no gluten free options. He wouldn't ask a manger my questions because he already knew it all, then he just moved on and took everyone's order and ignored me. I will not go back.
