They did not have many options. The staff were not knowledgeable about my gluten allergy. Their broth actually contained gluten after I had them pull out the box with the nutritional label.

I have now had two different visits here and both times my order has been glutened. So disappointed because it could be such a fun experience. I think the company seems to know how to do gluten free safely, but unfortunately the wait staff does not.

As long as you go in expecting to spend a pretty penny, you're good to go! There are plenty of GF options and they're all amazingly delicious. Also, the booth seating provides for a cozy/more private dining experience than being in the middle of everything! I loved going with my boyfriend and spending time to actually enjoy the food, the ambiance, and did I mention the food! The waiter was extremely friendly and knowledgable, very kind and helpful. Overall, a great dining experience!

Wife is celiac. We told the waiter she had celiac and we needed the gluten free options. He confidently said he was happy we told him, but he kept bringing things to the table with gluten. He brought teriyaki sauce and all the glutened dippers. The wife is currently fighting off glutening, so we can only assume that there was cross contamination.

The quality of this place has gone way down. The dippers for our cheese and dessert were not fresh at all. Itching tasted good. We couldn’t finish our meal.
