    The fryer is not safe, and they reuse regular pasta water to cook the gluten free pasta. They said they had GF pizza, but then came out and said it would likely to be contaminated. Finally, they offered to boil fresh water for spaghetti. One Celiac who ate that, plus a salad and a flourless chocolate cake, was fine. The other Celiac, who ate a fish entree that was marked gluten free and a birthday ice cream sundae, was very sick after the meal. Very disappointing.

    Absolutely beautiful and a friendly staff, however my daughter and I both were very ill after dining. My daughter was so sick she was laying on the bathroom floor before we left. (Gross, I know, but she was REALLY sick.)

    Had a great meal here with a big group of family! Our server, Chris, was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and the GF options. He assured me they didn't reuse pans in the kitchen and any GF option on the menu would be safe for me to eat. I had the filet mignon which comes with a mushroom/caramelized onion topping and a creamy sauce of some kind. Whatever it was, it was amazing. And it comes with a side of smoked Gouda potato gratin which is amazing! I could eat a whole plate of just that. For dessert, the Chocolate Meltdown is awesome, as well as the Creme Brulee (hold the almond cookie). Highly recommend talking to the servers before ordering; this made me feel safe about the meal I had and it was awesome.

    I was So excited to have a Nice resteraunt have a gluten free menu.... But my excitement waned 3 days later when I got sick :( . If your nearly gluten intolerant you will probably be fine but for anyone with celiac I would think twice..... On the other hand Crows Nest who does not advertise gluten free was able to accommodate my requests and I had a superb meal and never got sick.... I had the prawn cocktail for appitizer, mashed potatoes , steamed veggies , plain choice of fish with absolutely nothing added and a side of plain melted butter and lemon wedges. It was Delicious ! :) . Hope this was helpful for all you Santa Cruz celiacs...

    A very nice restaurant. Beautiful grounds, fresh, well prepared food. They have several gluten free items. They assured there was no cross contamination. My daughter has Celiac, she had a nice dinner of broiled salmon, broccoli, and scalloped potatoes. I am gluten sensitive. I had creamed spinach, filet mignon, and scalloped potatoes. Both if us felt fine after dinner, no reaction. Don't forget to ride the hillavator! $$$
