Mel was a great server. It was really busy and food took a ridiculously long time (over an hour), but I knew it was a safe place to eat. Fries are GF and they gave GF burger buns (for an upcharge, like most places).
I was in DC for a week and saw this as my only option that was safe. I a very sensitive. I ate there three times, and the first two days, I had no issues at all. The third day, however, they put bread on my plate and had to remind my server/bartender that I order it GF. She apologized and took it back to the kitchen and I had to wait a little longer. It turns out they did not change the food, just removed the bread and the fries it sat upon it. I was glutened. It is a rookie mistake regarding gluten. I know I should have been paying better attention, myself, but became complacent after two days. I give them two stars, one for each day they got it right.
Awesome! Celiac friendly Great service!! Great food!
very friendly and helpful staff I've never had a reaction eating here and they have gf buns :)
Had a fantastic dinner here. They offer GF buns for burgers and the fries are GF as well. Even the adult milkshakes to wrap up our meal we're GF! Waitstaff was friendly and understanding when you mention you're gluten free for medical reasons.
I've never had a problem, staff is helpful. It's my go to.
they have a gf menu, just make sure you say no rolls. they placed one out of habit on my plate, and then tried to give me the same steak back without the roll. that's not good for cross contamination. while eating, I did have an allergic reaction. darn.
If I can give it zero stars I would. I am not sensitive to cross contamination, but I do have celiac disease. They fed me wheat and told me it wasn't, and I went home that night and had a seizure from how much gluten they fed me. DO NOT eat here with celiac disease or any intolerance.
Went with a party of 5 with 2 gluten-sensitive kids for lunch and another 2 with severe allergies and had such a great experience, long story short we went back for dinner. Both times the waitstaff were very knowledgeable and even volunteered what was GF and what was not. GF buns reported tasty and no one got sick after either meal. We had burgers and very fresh salmon which were excellent. Kids menu includes options like cedar plank salmon, grilled chicken and sirloin. Sliders are the burger option on the kids menu and when my son ordered a gf bun, the server said she’d request the smaller sliders be switched to one larger patty to fit the gf bun. Fries and chips are GF (but not dip that accompanies chips). So accommodating. Quality and service were excellent.
I have other food intolerances in addition to gluten so I had to do a bit of a custom order. As a side, I opted for a salad and it still had croutons on it, so I don’t think the staff is all that knowledgeable unless you’re micromanaging every little step. I didn’t eat the salad and had no reaction from the rest of the meal.
Overall, the food was quite tasty, and I’d rate it higher except for multiple snafus, both gluten-related and not. The waiter, who was new, was unaware that there was a GF menu, as it had said on this app, so I found it on their website and showed it to him. (He was otherwise wonderful and attentive.) However: my steak arrived wearing a large glutinous roll like a crown. :-/ I also can’t have dairy, or potatoes, and I’m pretty sure the asparagus was buttered, not oiled, as it tasted deliciously buttery. I had ordered a sweet potato in lieu of regular, but after about an hour went by and no food, they came back and said they just wouldn’t get done. Then, they said they had run out of my companion’s order, crab cakes. After an hour. No, seriously. They comped our meals, and gave us coupons, which did make it all okay...but “gluten-risky” is how I would rate this place. The waiter conveyed the appropriate info to the line, and yet. The roll. Sigh.
Love this place!!!! Kathy the waitress was awesome! Took excellent care of us. The head chief (Lindsey) LJ even came out and we had a long talk. Her roommate also has celiac so she already knew all about it. I would recommend going here for for sure!! The food was so good. Love the French fries!!
Extremely good, despite the limited gluten free options! Our server Maggie was very friendly and helpful, making our first night in New York memorable. The Avalon burger with chicken and gluten free toasted bun was so good! Highly recommend and reasonable priced for New York!
Dear Dennis, 5 star review for sure. Our servers professionalism and attention to detail blew us away. She made me feel confident and comfortable that my order was safe and correct. Furthermore, my husband is doing a Whole 30 diet (no dairy, gluten, sugar) and she made ordering not only easy but was well. Seperate GF menu. Brought my food out first and acknowledged is prepped GF.
I have had a buffalo burger on their gluten free bun and a regular beef burger on another occasion and French fries. Order your burger a little more done than you'd like as they tend to cook a little on the rare side. Tip: order medium well for a medium cooked burger. Did not have any gluten reaction for either visit.
Staff were knowledgeable and friendly. GF buns are heated separate from the others and the fries are GF too. The food is great and always freshly cooked to order. I'll be back again!
The gluten free menu is 2 full pages of options. This was so exciting for me. Since going gluten free almost 12 weeks ago, I’ve not seen so many options. The burger was great with the gluten free bun. My family thought food was wonderful as well. However, the waiter wrote himself in an extra tip so I won’t be going back.
This location doesn't get it. Ordered gluten free items off the gluten free menu. Plate showed up with a roll on it! Saw way too much of the sausage making sitting at the bar by the kitchen. There's no way there isn't cross contamination. Cooks never changed their gloves once in an hour. Sent mine back and observed them replating the same food that had touched the roll. The waiter was flabbergasted when I told him that I expected the entire thing to be re done. Still had diarrhea afterwards.
Bison burgers are delicious! They have a gluten free menu as well as gluten free buns available for burgers. When I was there for lunch, the server came back from the kitchen to clarify if my gluten free needs were a preference or allergy so they could prepare the food accordingly.
Not great Staff not well trained on gluten free Dirty restaurant
My husband and I love this restaurant! They have a separate gf menu with salad, steaks, and sandwiches. We've been several times and I've never gotten sick (I'm highly sensitive). Great steaks and you have to try the "kitchen sink" on gluten free bread! AMAZING!
3 of 4 steaks cooked wrong. Blamed us for ordering wrong. Service was slow. Food was average at best.
Have tried bison steaks and bison burgers. Bison burgers are better than beef burgers. Beef steaks are better than bison steaks. Gluten free buns are available for burgers.
Ted's has become a favorite. The burgers are great! I love the salt and pepper trout. The staff has always expressed their understanding. Most importantly, I've never gotten sick! Just wish they had GF French fries!
The food seemed to be ok as far as gluten, but overall was not good as I got food poisoning.
The restaurant claims to have separate prep areas for allergies. I didn't even make it home before I had a reaction. I order a burger with a GF bun and fries. Be careful if you plan to eat here.
