We chose this restaurant because it had gluten free options for my coeliac partner. It’s an intimate space and the service is excellent and helpful. The menu identifies all items that have gluten in them however it was not accurate. There was a barley risotto did not have a sign next to it indicating gluten which raised alarm bells. So many restaurants think gluten is only found in wheat. So my husband decided on the cauliflower soup and to our surprise the waitress returned saying there was gluten in the soup even though it was identified as GF. Eventually it was decided the pumpkin soup was GF. I had the best club sandwich I have ever eaten and wow I have eaten a lot so I feel I can safely say it was stupendous. This cafe is not cheap! Soup, club sandwich, 1 beer and three very small glasses of wine cost us just over $100 AUD. The staff are helpful with GF and the attached patisserie is exceptional. Attached is a photo of the menu.
This review is for the restaurant lobby along with hotel room service. I had a gluten free dining card with me written in Japanese and it was not necessary at all for the staff at the Peninsula. They have a separate gluten free breakfast menu offering an egg white omelette, gluten free toast and fresh fruit. They also have gluten free penne and spaghetti at the lobby restaurant and for room service. Along with this their entire menu labels items that contain gluten. It was a great surprise for them to recognize a gluten allergy and pay close attention to detail, which was a challenge at other places around the city. The service was exceptional and it was the best hotel I had ever stayed at. Location is great, with only a 5 minute walk to the center of Ginza.
