Went here for lunch. GF items included a soup, two salads, and ribs with French fries. I didn't trust the fries, so I bought a salad. Salad tasted okay, but was small despite the relatively high price. I left HUNGRY. Everyone else in my group filled up on the bread basket.
Menu had many options, all clearly marked. Wait staff made note of my gluten “allergy” and they re-confirmed each dish as GF when they delivered it to the table. It was very good and I feel fine! We’ll be back! Returned Oct2019, had Steak Frites, again the server was very knowledgeable, confirmed dedicated fryer and assured gf meal would be ordered and kitchen staff would be aware. Meal was delivered by another server who confirmed it was the gf meal and I tested with my Nima and it was confirmed gf. Excellent meal, great wines, love this place!!!
I just ate here this past week, and got really sick. We ordered take-out, and I don’t think the person on the phone alerted the kitchen. They do have many GF items on the menu, though, so it might be better to eat there in person so you can make sure the staff is aware.
My son and I ate here and it was delicious! Gluten Free options are clearly marked on the menu! We had the bacon wrapped stuffed shrimp and it was amazing! I finished with a steak. Everything was amazing and I didn't get any signs of being glutened
Very aware of precautions needed to be taken to avoid cc for our celiac son. Several GF options and extensive menu, my celiac son enjoyed bbq ribs from kids menu. Have separate GF fryer for French fries. All around good food and service.
Updated 12/2/17 - i used my Nima Sensor to test my meal and the french fries, polenta and pork chop w/out sauce came up GF. Previous review: i am an asymptotic celiac and don't appear to have had any issues at SC but depending on the particular server determines my cross contamination confidence. The more veteran staff always makes me more comfortable. Overall the food is good.
I react severely from even white vinegar and I was assured that there wasn't any and I got the cauliflower steak menu item and plain French fries and everything was delicious. I'll update if I get any reaction but I loved the music where and Our waitress Michelle was the perfect waiter. I enjoyed the Malbec $9 glass. I think it's a bit pricy for an all veggie dish.
Great service. Our server knew her menu and brought a gf bun when they brought my husband's bread. Make sure they know you are gluten free as its not automatic for all dishes. I got the steak frites and they put the fries in a separate fryer.
I do not know if we were unlucky or what but my daughter, who is two, had only some fries and two bites of the flourless chocolate cake. She reacted horribly for three days! Very disappointing considering the prices.
Delicious dinner and clearly marked options!! A def must if in Laguna beach / Dana point area!! Staff well versed in gf! And very aware of cross contamination situations. Had dinner an hour ago and no problems. CELIAC friendly
The hubs and I just got back from a great dinner at Salt Creek Grille. It was our first time there and we really enjoyed our food and the overall experience. Steve was our waiter and he was great! Very knowledgable and friendly. They have GF options right on there main menu. I splurged and had the ribs and garlic fries. The ribs fell right off the bone, very moist and tasty. My hubby had the prime rib and mashed potatoes. He said the prime rib was good but we both loved his mashed potatoes. They even have a flourless chocolate cake with chocolate gelato which My hubby and I shared. We ate outside and the weather was perfect. We will definitely be back! Thx for our great service Steve!
We're both very sad that Salt Creek Grille eliminated the wrapped salmon dish, which was their best GF (and dairy-free) option. The service quality has always depended on the know-how of the server, even now that the menu has GF markup.
Love this place! Have been going there even before they identified each and every item on their menus that are GF. There is no shortage of choices of GF meals. They could have a better selection of GF desserts though (currently only have 3 different flavors of sherbet), which is the only reason I gave them 4 stars. Great atmosphere and great food. Staff is super friendly and sensitive to any allergy.
