Tried Whitney House curbside to get out of a pandemic celiac-safe takeout rut and pleasantly surprised! Several entrees on menu can be made GF, both meat and seafood options. The person that brought it out to our car verified that everything was GF and the boxes were labeled as such too so felt safe. Will be ordering from here again.
— Gluten-free items are marked on the main menu
I'd been to the Whitney House long, long ago for just casual eats. This was long before my celiac diagnosis. My husband and I wanted to go some place nice for dinner with good food and a decent bottle of wine. I looked at the menu for the Whitney House online and there were gluten free options. I was a bit nervous as the reviews for GF (on a celiac/GF review site) were not encouraging. However, we decided to take a chance. I made reservations and was very clear about my need to eat gluten free due to a medical condition. I even asked for a response if they felt there would be any issue with this request. I didn't hear anything so we kept the reservation. The hostess was incredibly nice and IMMEDIATELY acknowledged my request/issue and told me it had already been discussed with the chef and the chef even knew what table we'd be seated at so he'd know the ticket when it came in. I was thrilled! Knowing is half the battle! We were seated and met our wait-person, Anthony, who again, acknowledged my need for a gluten free meal and said he'd be glad to ask questions of the chef or help me with deciding on a safe meal. When you have an issue like mine, the person who is your liaison between you and the kitchen turns out to be so important. At this point I felt completely comfortable and was really excited to try out the food. Anthony even did a Google check for me on a spice mix used in one of the dishes to confirm it was gluten free! This guy was awesome! We ordered a bottle of wine and the clams & andouille for an appetizer. It was wonderful! I liked the sauce it was in... not heavy. For dinner I had the seared trout. It was very good...very tender. And it was a huge portion to boot. For dessert I had a glass of port. A manager stopped by the table to see how things were going (she did this with ALL tables, not just ours). The server stopped by often but not so much that we didn't get to enjoy our conversation and food. He was so friendly...we had a nice chat about the Olympics and skiing. Not a cheap night for us but we only go out like this a couple time a month and it was worth it for us...not only because the experience was great but also because I was taken seriously, ate very well, had a safe meal, and (most importantly) I had no reactions and didn't get sick! We will absolutely be back.
Do not eat here. We didn't eat anything that should have been questionable. Eggs, sausage, salad, burger no bun. All three of us are sick!!!!
