1 star for service & a GF menu, but Definitely NOT Celiac safe.

As with most restaurants that are GF friendly but do not have a separate/dedicated area of their kitchen, they offer a disclaimer on their GF menu saying there is the possibility of cross contamination.

This must have happened to me as I ordered something off the GF menu that would not have had any gluten containing ingredients to begin with, & I told the waitress I had Celiac and she made a note about severe gluten allergy on our order, but I still got sick.

I am Celiac and do pau hana here about once a month. We always get the same thing - chicken nachos - and I have never reacted. Super friendly staff and they always seem to take my “allergy” very seriously.

Good experience. GF MENU. Had the mussels which very good but definitely need to add a side of rice or something with them.

Gluten Free menu. Serveuse très attentionnée avec les allergies. Super expérience, mais menu un peu dispendieux. Ça vaut la peine de l’essayer !

Food was ok, definitely not like the previous reviews!!! The gluten free menu had between 5-10 options. It cost $50 for mediocre GF lemon macadamia nut chicken and kalua pork nachos. There was no reason kalua pork nachos weren't on the GF menu. The lowest cost meal on the GF menu was $22, up to $50 for a mediocre meal!!!! Won't be going there again.

Delicious food and they have a separate menu for gluten free. I told the staff I am celiac and also ran the food through Nima and was gluten free. I ordered the lemon macadamia chicken.

Waitress was very knowledgeable. The GF menu was outdated and incorrect, so she had to guide me through the regular menu. Decent food and lovely cocktails.

Daughter had chicken macadamia nut that was on the gluten free menu. We found Gluten pasta in it after she started eating it and she was severely sick after eating here.

Delicious food. They have a chalk board listing the daily catch of fresh fish. The day we went it was Ono, yum. Menu says gluten free and vegan is available. Asked my server and she said the dish I ordered is naturally gluten free but she will definitely let the Jed's know so they can change their gloves etc. Statements like this our music to my ears from restaurant staff. I highly recommend checking this place out! Great vibes!

Waitress very helpful with gf order for me and my daughter- went through the menu and confirmed choices. THere is not a "separate gf menu" but there were plenty of choices that are farm to table. The ahi was excellent. Reasonable prices too!

Had Lauren as our server - she was wonderful!

The menu is not labeled as GF, but they are very accommodating - immediately highlighted that anything fried was not going to work. As soon as I placed my order, she asked if I was celiac, and then went over cross contamination protocol they have. She knew what could and could not be altered. Great sign of very well trained staff.

We had the caprice ap (really good!). My husband had the brioche on the side. I had the fish tacos - pretty good. Nice Mai Tais as well. They do also have GF cider.

The burgers look amazing as well, and they can modify.

The previous reviewer said that they identified gf options on the menu. This is no longer true. It just says that several items on the menu are gf, so ask your server. Fortunately, my server was really helpful, and I was able to get some tasty fish that satisfied my dietary restrictions. Most of the menu was sandwiches and pasta, so there aren't many gf possibilities.
