The entire menu could be made GF. Our waitress was so nice and accommodating. The food was delicious. I highly recommend the calamari, the stuffed mushrooms and the pumpkin cheesecake. We will definitely return.

Fantastic BYOB restaurant. Extremely knowledgable about celiac disease. Most menu items can be prepared gluten free and are marked as such on the menu. Decor is wonderful. Had two wonderful dinners so far (both without any adverse reactions) and looking forward to many more. There was even gf dessert!

I have many allergies, celiac is only one. They took my list and made me a couple meals from scratch. The skirt steak was amazing, so is the Salmon. Owners daughter has allergies, so they are very careful.

The menu changes by the season because the chef uses local ingredients that are in season during that time period. The owner was very knowledgeable and explained his immediate family has Celiac Disease. The food was wonderful and flavorful. If they ever have short rib on the menu, I highly suggest getting whatever that entree is. When we ordered it, you could cut it with a fork it was so tender. Definitely recommend.

I love RSK the food is always so fresh and amazing. We went in celebration of my graduation. I had the pistachio encrusted cod with broccoli rabe and fingerling potatoes. As an appetizer we had the shrimp bruschetta. The food was flavorful, the flavors paired well with each other and the food was hot and fresh. It is a little pricey but they have a dedicated gluten free kitchen and the waitstaff are all knowledgeable. My boyfriend got a pasta dish that was not gluten free and the server double checked with our table because he knew someone had a gluten allergy and wanted to make sure. It makes me happy to see that they care!

Absolutely amazing! 100% Celiac safe. Robert has 2 daughters with CD and has created a place that is safe for everyone with CD. Warm bread that is GF and delicious! Every dish on the menu is safe or can be prepared so (ex: changing a pasta dish to GF pasta). There are more GF desserts than not. The food was fabulous from start to finish. I cannot recommend RSK enough!!

Robert, the owner, has two children with celiac disease and is therefore knowledgeable and respectful of a gluten-free diet. His food is amazing and he goes out of his way to accommodate. From the minute we sat down we knew our gf/cd daughter would be able to eat safely and be happy.

Food is amazing!! They have gluten free rolls that they bring out upon request, they have a lot of choices. Salad is delicious. A little pricey but worth every penny. I have celiac, dairy free and am allergic to garlic and avocados. They are great in helping you pick something.

Amazing food and knowledgeable staff. Food could look a bit pricey but the portions definitely make up for it.

Roberts Scratch Kitchen what a wonderful find and right in my backyard. I have been going there since they opened. The gluten free food is so good. The owners family has celiac so the no how to prepare food that is safe. Even if you don't live close and you have celiac you should give it a try. Lovely atmosphere.

Great food, great service, great ambiance and the owner Robert took the time to explain how his wife and kids have celiac and they can do almost everything on the menu GF. The staff is aware of cross contamination and they had nice desert options from cakeover which was great. The place is also kid friendly , but I would go early with them, at least on the weekend anyway. No kids menu, but they did chicken fingers and pasta with butter which worked fine. We will definitely be back .

This cozy restaurant is PHENOMENAL! From the first-class, friendly service to the presentation to the scrumptious food. Definitely Celiac-safe. I have celiac disease, and I seem to be very sensitive to any gluten traces whatsoever. I have eaten here several times now, and have not had any reactions. This is definitely mine and my husband's favorite restaurant!

Awesome. Almost everything on the menu can be made gluten free. They use separate fryers and everything to prevent cross contamination. The food is great and the cheesecake is bomb.

If you have Celiac Disease, you know how hard it is to find someone who REALLY understands. Robert's Scratch Kitchen gets it! We just ate a fabulous meal in a beautiful restaurant. The meatball salad is delicious and the stuffed chicken is positively fantastic. Almost all items on the menu and specials can be made GF. A true gem of a restaurant!
