I am so grateful the Terrace is right here! The food is great and safe for Celiacs. They even have choices for dessert! Update: the food is prepared with love. It us a family-owned and run business. They have been here for 28 years! Be patient. Slow down. I always feel safe here and the food is delicious.
We didn't experience the level of service I've seen in other reviews. My daughter is Celiac and extremely sensitive and I felt that the staff was a little insensitive when answering my questions and concerns. After our over priced meal my daughter spent the rest of the night with a terrible stomach ache. I don't vote this place celiac friendly,
Wow! This meal was phenomenal. The waitstaff was able to answer all my questions about gluten free dining and how they avoid Cross contamination in the kitchen. Chef Tom even called me back to reassure me that he prepared gluten free meals on a regular basis. While he doesn't often have gluten free pasta, he made the extra effort to have a corn/rice pasta for me. It was a full meal experience. We started with the lamb "lollipops", which were extremely tender and flavorful. The house salad can be a meal in itself with tomato, lettuce, feta cheese, Sunflower and a creamy dressing. Chef also went out of his way to make sure we had gluten free corn lavasha and quinoa bread with a yummy garlicky bean dip. My entree was the trigger fish piccata over the gluten free pasta, and my dining companion who also dines gluten free had the panseared parmesan chicken over gluten free pasta. Plus, we shared some gluten free grits that were fantastic. Before dessert, Chef Tom's came out to check on us. She was delightful and explained that she makes both a gluten free white chocolate creme Brule and a key lime pie with a gluten free almond flour crust. Considering I get creme Brule at most restaurants, we opted for the key lime pie. To say the least, we did not leave hungry. I will be dreaming about this meal for weeks to come. While pricey, it is well worth the money, especially for special occasions. The chef's wife did recommend calling ahead for reservations as they can get busy at certain times of the year. Also, if you can call a day ahead, you have a better chance of getting gluten free pasta, which they don't always have available. She also suggested trying to get reservations for 5:30pm so chef can make sure the gluten free food is prepared first, as they only have one stove and he will more easily be able to make sure to avoid risks of cross contamination with any gluten containing items.
From the outside, this restaurant doesn't look like much. However, it has been featured in several publications. It is a bit upscale but well worth it and well worth the drive. An excellent place to visit if you are on vacation! Very sensitive and aware of celiac needs. Enjoy!
