The waitress was knowledgeable, and told me they have GF breading available! I had chicken cordon bleu for the first time since my diagnosis and it was really good! There’s also a flourless chocolate cake on the dessert menu! 😍
Was able to confidently eat gluten AND dairy free here easily. Absolutely delicious farm to table locally sourced food. It really was an amazing meal. Both in the meal itself and service/environment.
I happened to catch the chef/owner out front earlier that evening to inquire about eating there and he was happy to accommodate. I truly didn't feel it was an issue for him which was nice.
When we arrived our waiter was great, chef knew my concerns already. When meal came waiter kindly reminded me that chef just wanted me to know that my husbands meal was not "safe". which I did know since it was handmade pasta. LOL It was awesome that he passed on that info to prevent me from tasting by accident though. ;) (I'm long past that phase of accidental "glutenings" thank goodness!)
Really surprised this doesn't have more reviews as its one of very few places in a really touristy area you can eat a great meal. This is a top notch little bistro though.
One warning: if you are celiac ask about cross contamination prevention. I didn't require that discussion, however the kitchen is tiny. Doubtful they could have a dedicated allergy area. They may have other practices in place to reduce this risk though so call ahead if that's a concern.
Everything on the menu can be made gluten free. The best gluten free food I have had in years.
I am trying to change a illegal discriminatory policy that Roger's Riverview Bistro is trying to uphold. I was refused service on 4/9/2015 because I have a service dog. They insisted, and continue to insist, that patrons have their dogs registered with a bogus company. This is illegal.
They have not obeyed federal requirements as well as Washington law. To wit: RCW 49.60.215 prohibits discrimination in a place of public accommodation due to the “use of a trained dog guide or service animal by a disabled person.” WAC 162-26-130 requires “fair service in a place of public accommodation regardless of the use of a trained dog guide or service animal by a disabled person as well as because of the disability itself.”
Awesome food and you can even get chicken Milanese which is like chicken piccata (breaded) because Roger will use gf bread crumbs, gf flour etc.
