Honestly had a great dinner. The waiter didn’t know much, but their website has an amazing allergen menu that tells you exactly what you can and can’t have. Including cocktails! At at the salad bar, had the majority of the meats that came around, got a drink and a dessert and did not get sick!

We asked the a manager to walk us through the salad bar and sides that were gluten free. She started giving us a list which included cheese, deli meats, potato salad and asparagus for the salad bar. Then they brought hot sides to the table and we had to ask her to come back and tell us about those. She told us the rice, French fries and cheese bread was gluten free. I questioned the fries and asked what else was fries in the same oil. She said nothing. My boys (both with celiac disease) spared no time and dug in. About 5 minutes later she came back and told us the fries were not gluten free. We left with a $200 bill and 2 sick kids.

The food here was terrible and overpriced! With the facade of a fancy restaurant, they served canned beans, bland cheese, and raw vegetables. Definitely not vegetarian friendly, but they have a lot of meat —which we didn’t try because the salad buffet was terrible so we didn’t feel like paying double to eat meat. There are gluten free options, but the food is simply not worth paying for. I don’t understand the hype at all!!

I ate there and it was delicious. Didn’t get glutened. However, the staff did not walk me through the salad bar. My waitress gave me a sheet of the GF options but the salad bar items were not labeled. A manager went through the salad bar with me once I asked.

The tabbouleh contains gluten and it was next to the GF mozzarella balls. I found pieces of tabbouleh in the mozzarella for example. I’m a new Celiac so I’m sure this is very common.

The meat is GF and the fried bananas and cheese bread. I ate a lot of those ;)

Free cheesy bread when you sit down which is gluten free, amazing salad bar filled with mostly gf options, all meats are gf as well. Pricey but a cool experience, worth it for a nice dinner out in Detroit.

I can not say how impressed I am. I told the waitress I am gluten free she got the manager who personally walked me around the salad bar area. He sent plantains to me instead of mashed potatoes. Their mashed potato’s are not gluten free. He checked on me several times through out the meal. All the meet was cooked to perfection and all is gluten free.

Went to Texas De Brazil for Valentine’s Day. Almost all the meats are GF except the spicy something or other. The incredible Brazilian cheese bread IS gluten free. The white rice is gluten free. The other sides were not. The salad bar had quite a few options and they said all dressings were okay except Caesar not made in house so I was suggested to avoid. The mashed potatoes, French fries, etc NOT GF and not made in house so I was suggested to avoid. There is someone there named Anna that knows everything and will walk you around the salad bar. Anna was super knowledgeable, our server wasn’t as much, but was willing to check, which is what really matters. No gf desserts. They had gluten free marked on my reservation. No issues. Nice date night and I’m super full.

They have a dedicated GF menu on line. The wait staff brought over the manager when I asked about GF. He walked me around the salad bar and kitchen area pointing out the GF options. Delicious.

I order from this place all the time, it is delicious! You can’t eat everything but what you can eat is enough options. There is a allergy menu online to be able to identify what sides are gluten free. You can eat all the meats no problem and the cheese bread.

The server told me exactly what I couldn’t eat and that list was really pretty short! I loved the bacon wrapped chicken. Only downside was that no desserts were gluten free.
