Upon mentioning that I have Celiac, I was asked if cross contamination was okay. Server seemed to have zero training. We left and went somewhere else.

Mixed feelings leaving this review - ordered a simple salad with steak on top. I specified that the steak should be cooked in a clean pan rather than on the grill. They clearly didn’t follow my instructions, and the meal came back unsafe (gluten found with the Nima).

They very nicely remade the meal, which then came back as being safe. However, I was frustrated by the fact that they did not follow my instructions. Overall, a tasty salad, but a very inconvenient way to eat.

This was a great restaurant when it opened but has gone way down hill. A burger without bun and some oysters. I used to love their charcuterie board before I went GF... I asked for one to go, so I could eat it at home w/ my own GF bread, and had the server double check to make sure all the meats were GF. She said it was safe, but it made me sick. :/ Far better options in Harvard Square.

No dedicated menu, and a bit of confusion between the staff and kitchen as to what could be made GF. They did have a pasta option, but no GF pizza dough which was a shame. While the menu was disappointing, the staff handled it phenomenally and worked hard to make sure we had options.

No GF menu, no bread and shared fryers, that said I had an excellent swordfish salad and the server was extremely knowledgeable and offered to check with the chef on customizing items if needed.

Great meals all around, and my daughter (celiac, age 9) had a large burger without bun and a large bowl of fresh fruit. Wait staff seemed knowledgable.

Went for brunch. There was no GF bread substitute available, so I had the eggs Benedict sans muffin and sans home fries, but still had a reaction to something, maybe the sausage or Hollandaise? Also, no GF menu.

Food was tasty and the staff was incredibly helpful in pointing out what I could eat. This place is a bit loud though so keep that in mind if you're looking for a quieter spot.

They do not have a gluten free menu but the staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. Still, there aren't too many gf options so I wouldn't make this a regular spot
