They ensure that they speak to their kitchen staff and that they are trained on how to handle allergies.

The food was great and I didn’t have a reaction. The staff was super nice, knowledgeable, and understanding. I’ve been there a couple of times and wouldn’t hesitate to go back

Ordered take out and was very clear in requesting gluten free. When it arrived, it was obvious one dish had not been altered to accommodate this. When I called the restaurant they confirmed that they had made a mistake and had not made it gluten free. They said they would refund the order and never did.

Amazing with gluten free, take celiac seriously and have a manager bring out gluten free food. Would eat here all the time!

I love coming here. They change the menu seasonally, they take precautions, and I’ve never been sick. The flourless chocolate cake is a must.

I have eaten here more than a dozen times because they are so careful and I have never had a reaction. They have gluten free pita, pizza. And can turn almost any meal into GF. I also only eat plant based so eating out is very stressful. This is my favorite place to go.

I ordered a GF pizza for my 5 year daughter (with celiac). They assured me it was a safe area. It tested positive for gluten on my Nima. They brought out a second one & same thing. Positive. Tested it twice. And the test aren’t cheap. Went home with a very hungry & sad kid & made a gf pizza at home. Tested it ( because I was worried I possibly had a bad batch of nima testers). The pizza at home was a smiley face on the nima (no gluten detected).

Told staff I had celiac disease and was promised they would be extra careful. Ordered the Pad Thai (marked GF) on menu. When food arrived, I began eating and noticed a ravioli mixed in with the food. At first, they claimed it was a mushroom, but quickly realized their mistake. The explanation I received was the ‘pasta station’ was next to where they prepare the Rice noodles. I asked how they would be addressing this in the future and they did not have an answer. Was offered a free meal, but have not gone back.

Staff was very knowledgeable & a manager personally ensures your meal is gluten free. I’ve eaten here 4-5 times and never been sick. And I’m the type who feels symptoms very acutely

Healthy food and the staff does a great job handling allergies. I’ve never had any reactions at this place. A good place for brunch for sure.

The only down side is it’s kind of pricey and portion sizes are small.

So many gf options (much more than is noted on the menu, tbh) and I've yet to have a server who wasn't super caring and on top of it. Plus, a manager usually walks the food out when I've told them I have celiac to answer any questions and ensure the food is safe.

When we walked in I could immediately tell the would be understanding of my dairy and gluten allergy and felt safe even though the menu says gluten “friendly” not free. The menu had lots of options, some of which I don’t get to experience when going out. I expect there to be a gluten free bun or taco shell but not an entire dessert menu! The bartender who served started to list the 3 options and I stopped him to say- you only have to tell me which are gluten and dairy free. To my surprise he said ALL! He was knowledgeable about the menu and the ingredients and informed the kitchen of my allergies. All the food was very delicious! My husband keeps talking about how much he enjoyed it, especially the flourless warm chocolate cake. The whole restaurant including the bathrooms was immaculately clean. The customer service was wonderful from everyone even the runners bringing plates over. Of all the restaurants in this downtown area we tried, this was my favorite!

10/10 would recommend! Josh was so nice and informative on our first visit here! I’m gluten sensitive and the menu had a little “gf” next to everything gluten free. We had the charred cauliflower (delicious!) the squash casserole (yum cheese!) and the flourless chocolate cake (YES 100x!) No flare ups and will definitely be back!

I have eaten here many times and never gotten sick! I love their food and they have lots of healthy, GF options. Highly recommend their butternut squash GF pizza and their cauliflower app and curry bowl 😋
