My husband and I just had a wonderful "Thursdate" experience last night. When making the reservation I indicated I had celiac disease, and the host who seated us also asked about "food allergies." I also heard her ask others as they were walking to their tables, so it reassured me food safety is a priority.

The server explained they were prepared to split the fondue into 2 pots with separate dippers, but we clarified that we would both rather eat GF to prevent any cross contamination at the table. The server knowledgeably participated in this conversation and agreed it was safer for me if we both ate GF. Just wanted to let others know their options before going.

We had a fantastic meal. The menu items were clearly listed as GF and our server was completely familiar with the GF subs. The bread dippers looked so good I wasn't sure if they could really be GF but all was well and delicious too. Even the dessert fondue included GF brownie and cookie dippers.

Not gluten free! Didn't even get through the 1st course before a having huge painful reaction. Only giving 1 star because zero stars were not an option. Staff was very nice but not gf! Manager didnt even come by after. They just said not to worry about paying for the cheese and we left.

Fun change from the usual fare. I enjoyed a salad and the duck cooked "bourguignon style." The night I was there they were out of gluten free bread--so I skipped the fondue. You may want too call ahead to make a reservation and reserve your bread. The restaurant only allows one pot at the table at a time. I think it's about 4 people per burner. This is a great option if the people without dietary restrictions are willing to share the gluten free options with you. If not you have to take turns with courses.

Love all the gluten free dippers (bread, brownies, pound cake)! Staff seems very knowledgable... However last time I was there, there was a new drink menu with mixed drinks labeled GF and non GF. I talked to the bartender about what appeared to be inconsistencies (drinks with alcohols I thought were safe were not labeled GF and then drinks with unsafe ones were some labeled GF and some not). He said he didn't think the labels were correct and advised me what to get... so I would be careful to trust the gf on the drinks and make sure you let them know you are gluten free.

I thought I was going to have to give this place up when I found out I was gluten intolerant. So excited to discover they did gluten free. Great food and always great service.

Very good fondue place. Knowledgable staff and good options. As with all fondue places, it's on the pricier side. Look for specials and coupons or have it be a special occasion.

Shawn was a lovely server. He explained how all surfaces are wiped clean before preparing gluten free dishes. Started with Wisconsin Cheese fondu with GF bread, veggies and apple, it was delicious. Next was coq au vin fondu with chicken, steak and tuna, all great. Followed by milk chocolate fondu with GF dippers. Everything was delicious.

Extremely celiac friendly. Waiter broke down everything my husband could have, even made sure we knew the shredded cheese did not have flour additives. Gluten free beer available, gf bread dippers and chips too; everything clearly marked.
