    I was surprised to see that good reviews on this restaurant. For the record, I have never left a review on this app that was anything but glowing, but not this time. The one good thing was the service was great. The server was knowledgeable about celiac and I did not get sick. The food, on the other hand, was not very good. I ordered an appetizer that sounded delicious. It was shrimp, tomatoes, cucumbers, and lime. Sounds good and refreshing, right? Nope. I think the tomatoes were out of a can. It was not good at all. Furthermore, I ordered a burger and the multi grain bun that they use was just Udi's bread, not even their hamburger bun. Also, the bread wasn't toasted, so the whole thing fell apart. I mean, really? They can't invest in a $20 toaster? My advice is to skip this place.

    Outstanding staff - really the best service we have ever had in a family friendly place. John K was our server - get him. He knows the gf options and is so nice and helpful - even wrote down where to find their amazing soft gf bread. The burger was great and John even brought a separate dipping oil/herb plate and warm GF bread as an appetizer. I would give it ten stars.

    They have a separate GF menu that is extensive and has variety. Server was aware of Celiac and cross-contamination. Meal was delicious and service was great.

    Excellent service and GF choices. Food was delicious! Service was friendly and accommodating! Only wish they had GF dinner rolls like their competition 'Food For Thought' located down the street has!

    This place makes it clear that they don't have dedicated gluten space, and that's ok for us as we have gluten sensitivities in our family, not celiac--but they claim they have gluten free rolls and breads as alternative options. I confirmed this with the waitress when we sat down--she said yes. Then I ordered a burger and she said they only have sandwich bread, not rolls. And it's an extra $2.50 charge! Who puts a burger on sandwich bread?? Even the "pre-dinner bread" was cut up slices of sandwich bread. She seemed confused at best. No gf options on kids menu at all. We would not come back, especially with the other local gf options that are here to choose from. Go down the road to Food For Thought. You'll be happier!

    Excellent gluten free menu. There were so many choices. Awesome service. We came for late lunch and it was nice and quiet. Went again and it was ok second time.

    Fantastic food and service! Our waiter John made wonderful suggestions and was very attentive. They had a full GF menu and I was excited to see more than just salads! I had the salmon which was moist and delicious! Highly recommend!

    Thay do have a nice GF menue. I had salmon, sweet potato razoto, vary good. But the waitress tryed to serve me wheat rolls and didn't have GF rolls. She had limited training on GF.
