I wish zero stars was an option. This was one of the most disgusting dining experiences of my life. The food( that was very expensive by the way) was old and dried out and had obviously been shipped in and not prepared fresh. I'm terrified to know how old the stale bread was. We took two bites canceled the rest of our order and left. I did not get sick at least, but don't waste your money at this place.

We had an amazing dinner last night. The gluten-free menu is detailed, listing exactly what changes need to happen in which dishes (some of the cheese fondues substitute Redbridge beer for the lager beers, no croutons on salads, etc). We had the Endless Fondue special, which gives you four courses (cheese, salad, entree, dessert) with unlimited meats for your entree. The cheese fondue came with gluten-free brown bread; we had to skip the teriyaki sirloin and the spinach ravioli on the entree; dessert had gluten-free brownies and pound cake. Their gluten-free items come from French Meadow Bakery. I recommend getting the premium cheese fondue dippers as well; the meats really add nuance to the course. A nice, leisurely, 3-hour dinner.

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.
