I went to this restaurant because it was GIG recommended I was very disappointed. The waitress did not seem sure about what was gluten free. My friend and I were sharing a pot and she had agreed to do gluten free yet the waitress brought regular bread for her and gluten free for me. It was frustrating and I was nervous.

The waitress was very knowledgeable about gluten! They asked when we checked in if there were any allergies and almost everything is gluten free there. They even brought us gluten free bread for an appetizer and brownies for dessert. Would recommend!

Our waiter had no idea what cross-contamination is. They do offer gluten free but they took no precautions whatsoever. Carrying, pouring, stirring, dripping stuff across the plates of gluten free food and person we had just told him was extremely sensitive to gluten. My daughter ended up eating nothing at all there.

The waiter was not very knowledgable or accommodating. I told him about my dietary restriction and asked for a salad with no croutons. He brought me a salad with croutons. I told them, and they said they would fix it. I thought they did, but as I finished, I found a crouton on the bottom. My guess is they just picked off the croutons. I went with a large group and the waiter decided which items he wanted to make gluten-free (like cheeses) so be sure to tell him which one you want gluten-free! (I thought I did) If I go back, I will ask for a different waiter and make sure they know about my celiac! I might give it another chance because the food is SO GOOD!

it was good! you cook eveything at your table in your own pot, so as long as you are with other diners who don't mind a gf meal, it seems pretty safe!

We asked for the table to be entirely gluten free. First thing she brought regular bread and we asked and she traded it out then they were supposed to substitute out the teriyaki beef, and they didn’t. Wasn’t until the celiac in the group tasted it that it was discovered. Manager was pretty useless, gave a coupon off the next visit. Then waitress pretty much ignored the entire table for the rest of the night. We have been there in the past and had a good experience, but we will not be back

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.

The server was incredibly cautious and clear about what was and was not gluten free. There were tons of options at no extra cost. The food was delicious too.
