Nice selection for adults, clearly marked but not any gluten free options for my toddler be nice if they can add a gluten free bun or pasta to make it easy for us to dine here with her.

Lots of gf options, knowledgeable server (Gloria) and they will help you to order something safe. I actually had choices for lunch which is unusual. Servers usually say I can have a salad.

Ordered the branzino, cauliflower mash and polenta. The menu stated these items were GF on the menu. Tested the polenta with my Nima sensor because the polenta looked fried. So glad I did because it tested contained gluten. The waitress swore it was GF. Apparently not!

They have a separate allergy menu. Regular menu has gluten free icons. You can have pretty much any fish grilled. I had grilled tuna with a garlic chili sauce. With mashed potatoes and rice. Was excellent. Waitress was very knowledgeable. Great experience.

Very few gf entree options. I also have a dairy allergy and there was only 1 side dish option. When I tried to customize a suitable meal I was told the kitchen couldn’t do it because the meals were already portioned out… I ended up with a very boring and tasteless skirt steak and broccoli rabe. Thankfully when the waitress saw I hardly touched it, she removed the $38 (overpriced) meal charge. Very disappointing.

The staff was very accommodating regarding the gluten free options. For example, instead of a bread basket, they brought chips and green salsa. They also brought a smaller version of the artichoke dip for my non gluten free fiancé. The only issue was the limited number of entree options available. I had the crab and corn risotto and it was pretty good.

The menu has a gf symbol on the menu and if it doesn't, it can be made gf , if possible! And if they aren't sure, they ask a manager and they really cater to your specific needs.
