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!
Chef came out to discuss my options. I told him what I would like and he recommended modifications. Did not get sick:)
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.
Knowledgeable chef staff and had a couple appetizing options for GF. Mashed potatoes and ribs were good.
Very sensitive Celiac. It was amazing!!! When I mentioned gluten/Celiac, the server immediately sent out the chef to advise me and take my order. They were so confident and knowledgeable. My dinner was fantastic!!! And...no reaction at all!
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.
Took our son to T-Rex cafe and he loved it. Chef came out to our table and quickly showed the GF options and there were many to choose from. Food was decent.
Great kid friendly option. They were very busy yet went above and beyond. the food was delicious! I had their guac burger with GF bun which is the best I've ever had and my son had GF pasta which was terrific. highly recommend with kids.
We are here multiple times. Every time the waiter/waitress said they were not allowed to take my daughters order(celiac) The chef came out every time and wrote it down. Great service and very friendly.
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.
Chef comes right to your table for the order. Tell them Celiac & they are so attentive! Excellent service and great food! My kids & husband loved it too!
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...
WONDERFUL!! The buns are awesome, they have gluten free pasta too. The chef comes out and tells you EXACTLY what you can and cannot have. Plenty of options and OH EM GEE the food is delicious. Get the mashed potatoes, the chicken sandwich or the prehistoric pasta!
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!
Way too busy & the prices are ridiculous! We were sat and a good 15 minutes went by, no one even came to acknowledge us at our table. So we of course got up and left.
Chef came out and went over menu and took my order. The wait staff and manager were great.
Great staff and delicious food - especially if you love dinosaurs as much as me!!! The chef will come out and speak with you - no fried foods, no stuffed food which is already pre-made, they have GF hamburger buns and pasta. I had the burger with guacamole and bacon, so darn tasty!
Food was great, chef knowledgeable and explained what and how it is cooked.
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.
the best GF dinner I had at Disney. Chef made amazing pasta w same sauce as mushroom ravioli I was pining for. Delish GF cheesecake w crust!
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!!!
I have had the best time visiting Disney World! Every restaurant I have got to have sent a chef out to visit with me. The chef at TRex was very knowledgeable and my meal was awesome. Having celiac disease I am always concerned.
Good job- chef comes by and goes over the menu. Hubby had so many choices that he needed a few minutes extra to decide.
Chef helped me with the menu items and prepared separately!
Had mamouth chicken. SOOOOO good! Head chef takes your order and prepares it.
The kitchen manager coming to the table is a great way to make sure everything is handled correctly. The food is always great and it's a lot of fun. One of my favorite places to eat.
This restaurant was very helpful and willing to work with you...they send the kitchen manager right out to you table to place you order! the food was also delicious!! I would recommend it and would go again!
Loved this place. I felt very safe and confident with the staff. The waiter had the chef come out and speak with me about the menu. Chef Chuck was very helpful and knowledgable.
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.
Chef chuck was the most knowledgeable chef I have ever worked with at a restaurant! No messing around with him! I felt very confident in their training and kitchen precautions and knew I was in good hands. I walked out full and happy!
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.
Chef came out and made suggestions. my husband ordered the exact same thing. waiters couldn't figure out which was GF or not. I was sick on way home. won't be going back. Not CD friendly.
