    They were fantastic! Huge gluten free menu with delicious brunch and lunch options. They were super diligent in accommodating my dairy allergy & celiac. I did not get sick! For an appetizer we got the Caramelized Brussels Sprouts (GF) and for my entree I got the Mexican Hashbrowns with scrambled eggs & a side of GF toast (they have a separate toaster) both orders came out with an ALLERGY pick and were ran out separately. I highly recommend this place to everyone - also, if you plan on going on the weekend I suggest making a reservation as it gets pretty packed!

    I love brunch here! They have a separate gluten free menu with avocado toast, and fries are made in a dedicated fryer!

    Tons of options - better for brunch I believe. Eggs Benedict, French fries, etc. Gorgeous space and nice sunny atmosphere. Make sure to make a reservation, very long waits on the weekend.

    Like everyone has said, the food is good and when you tell them you have celiac, they make up a special ticket. Last time I was there I had the guacamole and beef tacos. So good! Our server was very kind and helpful, and she even gave me a cookie to go. 4 stars instead of 5 because the prices are a little ridiculous.

    Great food! As a Celiac, I haven't been able to have a California roll or French fries since my diagnosis. Well I had both (because the crab was real crab and they have a separate deep fryer) and had no reaction. They have an extensive gluten free menu and they even put an allergy pick in the gluten free dishes. Highly recommend any lettuce entertain you restaurants.

    Waitress was very knowledgeable in gluten allergies. She explained to me that a special pink ticket needs to be created for a gluten allergy and it requires 2 managers to sign off on. Definitely reassuring!

    LOVE this place. So many gluten free options. They label everything when it comes out with an allergy pick. Would highly recommend.

    The Lettuce Entertain You restaurants are always good with gluten free options. It was nice to have all the sandwich options with gluten free bread. The cookies were good too!

    Be very careful when ordering at this restaurant and make sure you specifically tell them that you have a food allergy because apparently ordering off the gluten free menu isn't enough to let them know not to bring you gluten free food. I ordered from the GF menu even showed the waiter what I wanted from the menu and my food didn't come GF and had a bad reaction. I have ordered from other restaurants from GF menus and not had any issues but here I did so please be very careful!

    Their fish tacos are the best thing I've ever eaten in my entire life no joke I would eat those tacos every second of every day for eternity. Their sauces and slaws are amazing, and my mom takes me there a lot because I love them so much. They have a very large gluten free menu, for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner, and it includes all kinds of dishes. They also have two gluten free cookies which rival the tacos in their culinary exquisiteness. They are kept in the same case as the normal cookies, however, so ask that they bring you one from the back to ensure no cross contamination. A wonderful restaurant to visit 10/10 would recommend!!!!!

    Like most Lettuce Entertain You Restaurants, they had a very nice GF menu. They fill out an allergen form for the chef.
