One of us was served a dish that had a few NON-GF spaghetti noodles mixed in with the gluten-free penne. Luckily we’re only moderately intolerant, and not celiac like others in the family! I ordered a tuna dish that was marked as GF on the menu, and it was great. Proceed with caution if you eat here!

It’s been a couple years but had a wonderful dining experience there. Had their scallop special and it was divine. No problems after the meal. Going again soon. Can’t beat the beach front setting. 3 years later just as good as I remembered. They even customized the cauliflower steak to be both gf and vegan for my friend. Waves crashing nearby. A real gem.

This restaurant catered the reception on the beach for a beach wedding. It started out scary as an older women server stated emphatically that the King Hawaiian sliders were gluten free and insisted I take one. I tossed it as I am aware of this company and they make nothing gluten free. She later found me and informed me she has been mistaken, no apology for trying to send me to a hospital.

I got the manager to run through all the food at the buffet to find out what actually was gluten free. The corn, ribs and chicken all were gluten free and tasted wonderful.

You can't go wrong being located on the sand in Newport Beach. Add to that delicious food and great service and you've got a real gem. Our server, Brandon, was awesome - super friendly and helpful. The hubby and I have to be gluten & dairy free. They were able to make some tweaks and our food came out delicious and safe.
