There are no GF markers on the menu however the waitstaff is well aware of what items are available to be made GF. I ordered the Triassic Trio; a lot of food! Food was brought out separately and the chef was alerted to the allergy concerns.

Amazing service! The chef came and spoke to us directly and was incredibly kind and accommodating. I really wanted nachos but their tortilla chips were not gf so he made me nachos with safe for me potato chips! It was also my birthday and they brought me a dessert specific for my needs.

Chef came and talked to us. They did have gluten free buns, but fell apart. It needed toasted. Cant have their fries, they are coated. Mashed potatoes were ok. Friendly staff.

We have been several times. The chef comes to talk to you. This time the chef kept talking on his headset and barely told me what to eat and wanted me to order so fast. If I hadn't been here before I wouldn't know what to get. I also have a pepper allergy and my food was definitely peppered (luckily not anaphylactic- just burns my lips and need a benadryl). A friend with a severe dairy allergy came here 2 days ago and had to use 2 epi-pens. Not sure what is going on here now...

Do not eat here!! Our waitress had a chef come out, he told us the nachos he could make gluten free he would just change out the nacho chips to regular potato chips we said ok... some other man brings out a plate of nachos I said are these gluten free for told us... I start eating them... 5 minutes later the chef comes out with the gluten free nachos 🤦‍♀... then we get told the frys are gluten free from the manager.... minutes later the head chef comes out and tell us they are not gluten free. I would never ever go back here again..... let’s just say I am sick as ever right now from this place.

Brought my son regular pasta, I asked if it was GF, they told me no and they would take it back. Brought same plate back out and asked if he was gluten “sensitive”? I said no he’s a celiac. Food was remade.

The chef came out to see me and personally take my order. She was able to modify most of the items on the menu that I was looking at (burgers). Then later they took the extra time to make sure my burger was GF. The only downside was not being able to get fries, but they had really good mashed potatoes instead. If shopping at Disney Springs again, they would be my top pick!

Probably one of the most allergy-accommodating restaurants I’ve ever been to. The chef came out and talked to everyone with food allergies (three of us total) and we all got food we loved. No bad reactions and we all had a lot of fun.

The service is always great and the chef personally comes out and walks me through the options I can have with celiac. The chef then brings the food out separately in order to make sure that there is no cross contamination. Plus my kids love the place so I get good food that’s gluten free and my kids are entertained at the same time.

My two celiac kids ordered gluten free pasta. When it came it had bread on it that did not look gluten free. When I asked they said sorry it is not gf bread!!!! Had I not asked we would have had a terrible cross contamination issue. They rushed to remake the pasta and the noodles came out hard. Beware and be careful.

Food was celiac safe with GF buns. No dedicated fryer. Waited 20 minutes to talk to a chef who acted very annoyed and like he was too busy for our questions. We had reservations for a second night which we canceled due to the way we were treated. Didn't get sick and atmosphere is really cool but do not recommend.

We went here because it was 100% rated in this app and we were traveling and wanted to play it safe... the first visit went really well and instilled a lot of confidence... so on our last day of the trip, I decided to play it safe again and eat hear so I would not be sick for my 11 hour car trip home... well, fortunately my meal was fine, but unfortunately, they served my daughter regularly pizza... I had noticed that it looked different and even had them double check before letting my. celiac daughter eat it... (I figured maybe they switched bread brands, but I was also concerned because to prevent my 1yo son from being covered in gluten, we ordered him gluten free mac and cheese... and my wife said it tasted too good to be gf...) Anyway, the waitress checked and said that it was fine, but as soon as my daughter took a bite, she ran out and said that now she is being told otherwise.... While the management handled it reasonably well, and even had paramedics called in (as it was ordered off the allergen menu), if they made this mistake for someone who hadn't eaten there before, there would be much worse consequences... because they wouldn't have known... they even said allergy when they placed her plate on the table... we're still waiting to see how much she actually ate, and whether it was enough to get her to vomit, or just enough to get her to be devil child for 11 hours in the car... don't want to get in the car until we know the extent...

Just ate here and so far my favorite meal in Disney. Chef came out to go over what I could have and what my son could order from the kids menu. Delicious Mac n cheese for my son, cheese burger for my other peanut allergic son (could get GF buns) I had the meat trio-steak, scallops in a chimichurro sauce and shrimp and rice pilaf. Chef brought out the allergy meals as well. All portion sizes at the table were huge. We could have split the entrees.

As local Orlando residents, my 11-year old Celiac son and I have eaten here dozens of times without any contamination issues. (And I'm super sensitive!) Just tell your server you have "food allergies" at the table and they'll bring a chef out. They're all very knowledgable about Celiac and gluten and can help you find a meal you'll enjoy. I LOVE the GF Omnivore Salad and our son loves the ribs. Dryer is not dedicated - no fried foods here. Great Celiac family place to safely eat at Downtown Disney Springs!

We had a great experience at T-Rex! The Chef came to our table and helped us chose meals for our girls. He then went back to the kitchen, prepared them, and personally delivered them to our table. It's really loud in there, but worth it to keep our kiddos safe!

They don't have a gluten-free menu, but the chef will come over and walk you through your options on their menu. They have gluten-free pasta, and it was pretty good. Not overcooked like most places do. My only complaint was the chef ran me through the menu really fast and seemed in a hurry, which was rude.

Great GF experience for our family! Chef came out n explained the options for the kids and me. We went with the pasta dishes, super good especially the Alfredo that they made special for us so it would be safe! Highly recommended! Chef said it would take a little longer to make cause he had to use a separate kitchen!!!

Hectic restaurant great for capturing little kids' attention with all the dinosaurs. Told the waiter of my gluten allergy and he summoned the chef who personally took my order. I had the fish tacos (blackened) which he said did not have to be modified. Cool place and they take allergies seriously. Good food too. So far no reaction.

It's great for the whole family. Food was good and the chief will come out and offer a bunch of different things. They get the whole GF thing and will work to customize your experience. Can't beat the atmosphere that takes precedence over the food. Whole package is a 4 star.

Their options are okay, food is okay, but you really go here for the atmosphere, dont you? The dinosaurs growling at you, the giant jellyfish sparkling on the wall, and the meteor shower that happens every 20 or so minutes. Do it for the kids, they won't mind the kids menu anyway... the fish tacos I got were decent, but lacking in fish. The chef will come out and talk to you (as with all Disney restaurants) to review the menu and then bring the food to your table so you can be sure it's completely safe of all allergens.

an update review.....the last review left me certain that this was a risk but we tried it. The chef came out and personally took my celiac daughters order on a bright pink slip, then our waiter came back for the rest of the family. The chef gave us about 15 options. On a side note they also unlocked the dino dig area for my five year old even though it was closed because we got there at 740 and they closed at 8. They went out of their way, provided excellent service, and my daughter did not get sick.
