1st off our table was wet, the hostess left us standing in the middle while she went and got something to dry it with. She accidentally used my napkin and gave me a wet napkin. 😳 the waitress had to go back to the kitchen 3 times to verify the special was GF. The manager came out to verify allergy and said kitchen staff was changing gloves and utensils. Great but i think the kitchen staff thinks GF means no flavor or seasoning. One crab cake with sauce no flavor, one wedge salad with jalapeño ranch no flavor, one salmon oscar style with berneise sauce no flavor, one grouper with lemon blur blanc no flavor and two waters. We looked like salt and pepper freaks trying to get some taste to emerge. Not worth the $120 bill. Giving 3 stars because they at least tried.

We are in town for a medical procedure at Lakewood Ranch Hospital and I was delighted to find The Grove right across the street with GF options. My experience as well as my food was great. The server, Travis, was amazing in his knowledge and help choosing gluten free. Turns out he is also a dietitian at the hospital and is used to diets for people with celiac disease. There were so many things I wanted to try and Travis made the experience perfect. Check out The Grove for lots of gluten free choices!

We had a great experience for brunch this morning! Three members of my party have celiac, we all got omelettes with a side salad. Our waiter told us the potatoes are fried in a shared fryer. Staff was knowledgeable and confirmed questions with the chef. Will be back soon!

I absolutely do not recommend their breakfast food options. Super disappointed. They advertised their breakfast bowl as gluten free and after the order had been placed they said it’s actually not gluten free. I got an omelet instead and it was super oily and small portion size and the breakfast potatoes aren’t gluten free. ... skip breakfast but lunch is good!

My son ate here with no issues. They have items marked as GF and can alter other items. The manager brought out all GF dishes separately, wearing gloves. The staff is well informed and takes care to prepare and serve food safely. And the food is delicious, especially the cauliflower flat breads!
