Rude. $$$ Expensive, not $$. Gluten pasta in my gf pasta seafood dish. Overcooked. Because we were dressed in jeans and tennis shoes, we were shown to the back room away from the "nicer" clientele. We didn't order wine, so we were then ignored for ~20 minutes. We ordered gluten free, they brought bread, and we said no thank you. First, she tried to explain how to use the oil on the small plate to dip the bread into, but we told her again we were gf and no thank you for the bread. Then she took it away in a huff. Once we received our food, it was overcooked. I got a medley of seafood in a garlic sauce of gf penne - squid, shrimp, mussels, clams, calamari, and scallops. All were rubbery and chewy. My husband had a similar dish in a tomato-based sauce. There was regular, spaghetti-like pasta in my husband's dish. Our food cost ~$32 a dish, not a $$ price. After the food was delivered, we were then completely ignored. Our water ran out and sat empty. We slowed down a bit, and our waitress randomly appeared to take our plates - that we were still eating from. I told her so and she audibly huffed. Once we were done, it took another 15 minutes for her to come back and take the dishes. She asked about dessert and said none of them were gf. We said no thank you, because none of it was gf. "Fine. Would you like the check then?" Yes, yes we would. Walking through the "nicer" dining area to leave, the waitresses and waiters stood in the walkways and motioned us to the door as if to keep us apart from the "nicer" guests. Not to mention that the door is in the back and then you have to walk up a wobbly set of stairs to get in, through a loud door that gets stuck on the floor.
