    We were here on a crowded night, and found it very enjoyable. Our waiter was very nice, checking in and modifying our choices as necessary. The gf menu had many choices, all our food was good.

    The gluten free menu is about 2/3 the size of the full menu, so there are lots of options. The food itself was very well done, and they asked lots of questions to make sure the food came out safe.

    My husband and I went there the other night. I was so excited because it had a designated GF menu. We sat in the bar area. The waiter started out great until I said I was Gluten free. Then he kind of rolled his eyes at me and said well are you celiac or is it a preference? I said it’s not celiac but it’s a severe intolerance, which he didn’t believe. He said well we have to ask because not everything on the gluten free menu is in fact gluten free. I was horrified. Why have a Gluten Free menu if it’s not all gluten free? I asked about the tuna tartar and it being safe. He said they have to do it a different way and it takes much longer. He was kind of rude about it. I said fine I’ll wait. I did not get sick from it but he made me feel bad about myself and ruined the dinner. He was knowledgeable but went through the gf menu pointing out what was safe and what wasn’t with an attitude!It’s expensive and I was really disappointed considering what a nice restaurant this is. So BEWARE!

    This has always been one of my favorite restaurants, but I went this past weekend for the first time since going Gf. I ordered a cocktail and wasn't familiar with one of the liquors in it and the bartender came over to explain what it was and that it would be safe for me to have. I had the pan roasted cod with mushroom risotto and it was delicious. My only complaint (and reason I subtracted one star) is that I wish they had some gf bread so I could have it before my meal with their homemade maple butter.
