Delicious food. Had clearly labeled GF options and the option to sub bread and pasta for GF versions which was great for my father in law (wheat allergy). Having Celiac's makes it harder for me but I was able to have the salmon main course, the waiter talked with the chef and they accepted my request for clean utensils and gloves and were very accommodating and understanding. They did say the grill (steaks/burgers) has risk of cross contamination and they do make chicken tenders for kiddos so the fryer is not safe, so no french fries etc... sadly. I felt confident about my salmon entree though after discussing with them and did not have any symptoms after dinner.

Update: not safe to order from door dash or grubhub. Ordered a cheese plate gluten free and got regular crackers and bread. When we called they said it was the ordering service’s problem.

not a dedicated kitchen, but they'll work hard to make it safe. go when it isn't crowded so they can just focus on your dish. Have had one of the salads and bbq pizza successfully

Went here with a group of friends and based on previous reviews, I expected to be able to eat. I am Celiac and when I asked about Celiac-safe options our server mentioned that the kitchen is very small and cross contamination was a strong possibility even though many menu items are or can be prepared GF. He said that if it’s more than a preference, he was wary. As a sensitive Celiac, I appreciated his honest answer and chose not to risk it. One star for being honest! I didn’t get sick, but I couldn’t eat!

Staff is knowledgeable and they have great gluten options. Gluten free pasta, gluten free pizza and many of their entrees are gluten free or can be modified. They can substitute pita for gluten free crust. Chefs girlfriend is gluten free and understands the risk of being glutened.

Gluten-free icon listed next to menu items, salads are AMAZING and huge! I've had the Cobb salad and Kale salad multiple times. They can do hummus with veggie sticks or gf pita (I haven't tried the pita yet). They also offer gf pizza crust and although they don't have a gluten-free kitchen, I always alert them of my Celiac and they are careful to do whatever they can to keep it safe. I've had the pizza multiple times now with no issue. The Brussels sprouts are the best I've ever had. Staff is friendly and helpful, I've always had a good experience there.

Amazing gf selection marked on regular menu. Staff was gf savvy- one of the wait staff was gf herself and was very helpful. They do not have a dedicated kitchen fryer but nonetheless so many delicious options I was fine without fried anything. Had the surf and turf dish and it was amazing!!!

Had the ceviche with tortilla chips on the side (sourced offsite so unclear of cross contamination - I didn't eat them). I also had the Italian Garden pizza on GF dough. The waitress was knowledgeable and helpful. The staff when I called ahead completely understood, including knowing before I said anything about the risks of shared oil. I'm Celiac and quite sensitive but I was able to go out with friends and we all left very happy and satisfied. Highly recommended.

while there isn't a dedicated gluten free kitchen, they are very accommodating to those with gluten sensitivity, examples are they are happy to substitute their pita Chips for humas with their GF pizza dough. which is great! plus their pizzas can be done on GF. There are also other items on menu that are Gf so give them a try, enjoy some wine or beer.. maybe some wine tasting at the wine bar while your there.
