    We had dinner here over spring break and they were excellent with my daughter - who has celiac and is very sensitive. The menu was clearly marked, the waitress was knowledgeable and helpful (made a number of modifications/substitutions so that my daughter could also have a DF meal) and we had no issues. Made a 2nd reservation when we were on our way out and man who took them noted his mom had celiac as well. We would definitely return - lots of options for GF meals and what we found to be a caring, helpful and knowledgeable staff.

    Would give 0 stars if I could. If you have celiac run don’t walk away from this place. While the menu had gf menu it is not safe. The Ceasar salad in Parmesan bowl. NOT GF. The bowl fried in the same fryer as conch fritters! When this was pointed out to the manager well she didn’t care. She told me my celiac daughter would be ok. Really ok?! What does she know. Celiac or gluten sensitivities stay away!!!

    Excellent experience with great ambiance! Best gluten free menu we have found so far with many gluten free items. Celiac had no issues here and was a very happy girl with all of the gourmet-type selections. Pricing did not break the bank either!

    The Restaurant has many items labeled gluten free. However, I believe they’re not very accommodating or knowledgeable regarding cross contamination. Waitress was very confident about the items being gluten free. I ordered chicken with chimmichuri sauce. My Nima sensor detected gluten. I returned it and they brought a sample of soup which they were confident didn’t have gluten— I asked for whatever they were sure was gluten free. The Nima sensor detected gluten in the soup as well. This restaurant is not safe for celiacs.

    Lovely rooftop restaurant. The gf items are marked on the menu. The waitress was knowledgeable and they have a gluten free alert in their computer. I had prosciutto wrapped dates and a Caesar salad because I wanted something light. He had duck with mashed cauliflower and ordered it gf so I could taste it. The dates and salad were good, but the duck....omg....it was delicious. It had the tastiest gravy...yes, I said GRAVY! Being the generous sort of fellow he is, he kept giving me bits of duck until he finally just gave me the plate and took the salad. It's the kind of meal we celiacs can never have and he joyfully watched me polish off his dinner! I just managed to review the restaurant AND my man! Both are amazing.

    The staff was very friendly and our server was very accommodating. We had the fresh catch of the day and my wife (who has celiac) had no issues. The fresh catch was Mahi-Mahi and it was one of the best prepared Mahi-Mahi dishes I have ever had. The kids menu made it even better as my son is very picky and enjoyed the cheeseburger (not gluten free). I would highly recommend the Roof Top Cafe and will definitely come back again when we are in Key West.

    Our 6 year old celiac daughter had the seafood and corn chowder soup and then the grilled shrimp with mashed potatoes and vegetables. It was very delicious. She had many options and our food was amazing, too!
