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.

The staff were super friendly and knowledgeable about gluten free! Most of the menu items were gluten free or could be prepared gluten free. They even gave me gluten free bread, brownies, and cookies! Each course was delicious, and there was a wide variety of options to choose from. The sever ensures that those with celiac are taken care of and that everything is sanitized to minimize cross contamination.

I went here for a girl's night with 3 other friends that were kind enough to eat gluten free with me, since you do share the same pot. They have a gluten free menu with a lot more selections than I anticipated. Even with the cheddar cheese fondue, they used corn starch instead of flour and gluten free beer! it tasted just as I remember from before I was diagnosed Celiac. Their gluten free bread is well, you know.. gluten free bread. But I didn't even care. Even for dessert, they have gluten free brownies, marshmallows, chocolate.. Everything was delicious and I did not get sick!

Staff was extremely extremely knowledgeable, told the waiter once I’m celiacs didn’t have to mention it again. When I tried to order something not gluten free he told me exactly what in it made it not gluten free safe! And suggested something different. They had gluten free bread dippers, and gluten free brownies, we requested apples for the chocolate and they happily obliged. Got the steak and they let you sub the teriyaki one for either of the other two. 10/10 would recommend this place!

Made reservations ahead of time annotating gluten-free requirements. On seating, discussed with waiter and ordered gluten-free menu offerings and substitutes. First course cheese fondu was served with wheat bread; sent back for gluten-free bread. Main course fondu was brought with teriyaki sauce (identified by waiter to have gluten) served in same sauce bowl caddy immediately adjacent to / side-by-side with gluten-free sauces (high concern for cross contamination). For the dessert fondu, low level of trust that brownies were gluten-free. This experience was the exact opposite of dining event in January (which was outstanding).

This has become me and my husband’s favorite place for celebratory meals. I’ve never had any issues after eating here. I will say that I always double check that each entree brought out is GF, and that occasionally the kitchen will send out the non-GF dessert tray, but they are always very accommodating with taking it back (and usually my waiter has noticed it before giving it to me).

Our experience was great! I was with a group and I am the only one GF. The others in the group enjoyed the GF options as well. Things are clearly marked on the menu and substitutions were easy. Our server said she just hits the GF button and it automatically substitutes. She even asked the cook staff to prep our veggies and fruits separately since the containers are close together to prevent CC. We had several options for dessert including GF brownies, fruits, marshmallows, and rice crispie treats. The other in the party got pound cake as well and just dipped fondue out with a spoon rather than dipping. I did not feel like I missed out on the experience at all and it was delicious. I had no reactions. I highly recommend.
