Much of the menu is GF. Outstanding food, impeccable service. Perfect for a romantic outing or special occasion. I have eaten here several times and it has been a fantastic experience each time.

This is a family favorite for celebrations, so I was glad to see they have a GF menu. It has about half the items on the regular menu, with multiple options for each course. I usually get a salad, steak and side (spinach, asparagus, scalloped potatoes), and creme brulee. The staff are very knowledgeable and careful.

They have a great gluten free menu and our waiter was very accommodating. No issues during our meal and no symptoms afterward.

Although they had a Gluten Sensitive menu that I ordered off of, the salad arrived with crostini. After I sent it back, the “new” salad was just the old one with the crumbs of the crostini removed. I sent it back again and they remade it. Despite having a card with all of my allergens on it (of which gluten is only one), and the server promising to double check everything on it with the chef, they didn’t tell me until my entree arrived that I couldn’t have the sauce which was why I’d selected that particular dish. They’re clear about not meeting GF standards and that they’re really gluten sensitive, so I guess it is no surprise that I’m writing this from the bathroom I had to rush to.

Menu is not labeled. Most waiters have been knowledgeable and helpful. Not a lot of options if you are vegetarian or vegan.

On our holiday and birthday place list, it's pricey but the service and food are great! Separate GF menu, and our thanksgiving server even went back to the kitchen to double check something for me.
