I had the lamb chops which come with spinach and green sauce. It was all GF and the wait staff seemed knowledgeable about what I could and could not have. I ordered them cooked medium, but the meat next to the bone was raw in the center (I order my stakes medium rare, so I know the difference between rare and raw. This was rare with raw bits) so I had to send it back and asked them to cook it more. It came back well done. The food wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t great. None of my friends (who are not GF) thought the food was worth coming back for either. On top of that, the service was terrible. I would not recommend going here based off service and quality, but they seemed to know how to handle GF food and I didn’t get sick.

I have celiac and was impressed by how knowledgeable they are about cross-contamination. They have limited GF options, but the food was amazing and so was the service. I ate there on Friday and did not get sick (writing this 4 days later). They're very passionate about their food. If they know you're GF due to allergy, they'll make sure you have a safe meal and a great experience. I ate the lamb with spinach and had Nutella panna cotta for dessert.

Celiac friendly?
