    They had a hand-written GF menu - but brought out soy sauce with the seared tuna. Some of the GF options included teriyaki sauces as well - skeptical that they have a good understanding of GF options - order carefully. Otherwise, the food and ambiance is good.

    Would not recommend this restaurant. No gluten free options or alternative selections. So had a salad ...again!

    Restaurant manager had no idea they were listed as having gluten-free options and no interest in modifying even the salad.

    Fresh food. No GF menu, but they will work with you. Knowledgable about cross-contamination, and took precautions. The tropical slaw is super yummy and I generally dislike slaw.

    Ordered salad and told them was gf but came with croutons and bread crumbs all over it. Then the server never checked back. I will never go back!

    The waitress was very knowledgeable about my needs as a celiac. I explained that I was highly allergic and the waitress told me that she would personally tell the chef and the other staff to make sure I was not cross contaminated. My food was wonderful. They even had creme brûlée that was GF. Definitely worth the higher prices.
