Let me preface this review by saying that I used to wait tables. It was a surprisingly difficult job and I was terrible at it. I’m embarrassed and sad when I look back on those dissatisfied tables and what trouble I had caused them.

I asked for a vodka and soda with a lemon. I got a vodka and water. I told the server that I have celiac and confirmed with her that the chips for the nachos were corn chips. I ate two of them before I realized I should ask about the cheese sauce. Another server came by and told me no part of the nachos is gluten free. I had just had two flour chips. The salad was brought out with croutons. There were more inconsequential mishaps afterwards, but though my belly is upset today and I will spend a lot of time in the bathroom, I’m not mad. She was genuinely dismayed that she brought something I shouldn’t eat. She hadn’t been trained and she was doing her best.

However, I can’t just let you all have the same experience. I don’t recommend the place.
