This is one of the most unique restaurants I've been to. Though you can order everything a la carte, generally you have a four course meal. The appetizer is fruit, bread, vegetables, and apples dipped into cheese fondue (several types you can choose from). Then your choice of salad. Then the entree is several meat options plus vegetables cooked in a pot of several choices of spices. Then for dessert, fruits, cookies, and marshmallows dipped in chocolate, where again you can choose the type of chocolate.

The majority of the menu is available gluten free. This includes gluten free bread and cookies/brownies. There's practically no chance of cross contamination since each table has its own cooking area where you see it being made right in front of you - assuming nobody in your party gets any of the few options with gluten and dips into the fondue, absolutely no need to worry.

The staff is super knowledgeable and what has gluten and it's clearly marked on the menu. Just be prepared in advance - this isn't a casual meal. A four course meal for two, without alcohol, is about a hundred bucks before tips. And takes a couple of hours to eat.

I was so impressed with the gluten free options! Almost all of the cheese fondues can be made GF and they have GF bread to dip. The salad can be made without croutons and main entrees are safe also. End with chocolate founde served with brownies, ginger snaps and fruit. Absolutely amazing experience but pricey!

I had a great dinner and the waiter was so good and knowledgeable. The food was fresh and tasty. Most items in the menu can be adapted and become gluten-free, even a full gluten free fondue dessert with brownies! I would definitely recommend that restaurant. I’m celiac and very sensitive to any cross contamination.

Our waiter was very knowledgeable on gluten free options and made our experience feel just like the normal one! We had the NYE menu and got the red pepper bisque, Caesar salad, GF bread, chips and veggies with cheese fondue, scallops, shrimp, chicken, filet and GF brownies, cookies, marshmallow and fruit with chocolate! So delish and did not get sick. 10/10 recommend!

Our server made sure to check everything before sending it out. I am gluten intolerant and my husband is lactose intolerant. She was very friendly when we asked her about the food and even checked all the boxes of dressings and ingredients to make sure we were safe. Gluten free items and substitutions are all over the menu including drinks!
