    We came here for breakfast. All the wait staff were wonderful and friendly. Gluten free options were indicated on the menu, but the breakfast bar really called my name. When I asked about the gluten free options on the breakfast bar, the waitress was more than happy to list these for me, as well as tell me what to avoid. In the end, most of the breakfast far was safe. Also, the waitress had a concern about the eggs on the bar as far as a contamination, so she offered to get fresh eggs from the chef cooked just for me however I wanted them cooked to ensure they were safe! Everything I ate was amazing, but 100% the star of the meal was their grits. I don't think I'll ever encounter grits better than those, I've thought about them every day since. If you are a person that likes a good breakfast before a day of walking around town, you must go here!

    Only 1 item on the menu was marked gluten free (lunch). I asked if others could be adapted, rude no from waiter. Ordered the one item - 1/4 was inedible as a little tomato stack as it was all core. I asked for that to be replaced (3 times), was given a tiny shriveled over cooked tomato slice...not the stack with the sauce and other items. My third underwhelming experience there. That is a strike out in baseball - 0 for 3.

    There are extremely limited gluten free options here. We ordered anyway and was given the wrong food. What we did get was not good.

    Excellent food. GF items were indicated right on the menu and the selection was very good. Had a few desert options too. Service was very good and staff were on top of the GF options. Knew which of the specials worked and which ones didn't. Highly recommend it.

    Good options and the food was great! We ordered a cheese board with the bread on the side for the non-celiac people and they have us extra apples.

    Gluten free items are clearly marked on the menu. Staff is friendly and seems knowledgable. Pretty place - good for a date night on a busy New Orleans street. Would recommend to others.

    They did not have a GF menu when we were there. Very limited options my 3 year old w/ celiac would eat. If you can eat gluten, the food is awesome but if you can't I'd go somewhere else with more choices.

    it was good. they don't have a gluten free menu, telling you to notify waiter and they would take care of it. my waiter didn't seem to know what celiac/gluten free was, but he did check with chef and was able to make recommendations. it's celiac friendly if you're careful

    The wait staff seemed annoyed about our Celiac family, however if you are proactive it is a good option for gluten free dining. The food was great. Take note that there are 3 Dickie Brennen restaurants in the Quarter. Dickie Brennen's Tableau was a great Celiac friendly experience. The wait staff was very knowledgeable and the Chef made adjustments to make meals gluten free. We also dined at Dickie Brennen's Steakhouse. Although pricey, this was by far the best Celiac dining experience while in New Orleans! Highly recommend all of the Dickie Brennen restaurants!

    No gluten free breakfast menu and server did not know, or seem to care, what gluten was. I asked him to please ask the chef of a good breakfast option- other than the buffet- that i could eat, and he wouldn't. Such a bummer because the reviews looked great and I was so excited to go here and totally disappointed. I ended up with the $16 breakfast buffet- the bacon was sitting on top of a loaf of bread (?) , I was able to eat the ham and scrambled eggs. Didn't get sick from that so that's a plus. Wouldn't recommended coming here for breakfast.

    They have a pretty good selection on the gluten free menu here. I know the Palace Cafe has won some awards for its food, but I wasn't very blown away by my meals. I had the cobb salad with chicken for lunch, and the rotisserie chicken for dinner one night. Both were good, but not award worthy. The cocktails were pretty good, and they had a few good selections on the desert menu, like a white chocolate creme brulee and the famous bananas foster. I had the bananas foster twice, and it is seriously delicious!

    Went for brunch. Really appreciated the dedicated GF menu. Husband may have gotten a bit sick from the eggs and hash served in a skillet that my have been source of cross contamination. I had the Cobb salad and no issues. Quite tasty!

    Very good. Separate gluten free menu - just ask for it. Husband, who is not gf, was very happy with his meal, as well.

    This is a wonderful, classic New Orleans establishment on Canal street downtown. The servers have been very knowledge about gluten-free options, they have a dedicated menu, and work to accommodate patrons with celiac's disease.
