I ate here on a Sunday and I have been bloated and had stomach cramps for the past two day definitely would not recommend for anyone with a gluten sensitivity. They were very busy when we went so maybe that had something to do with it but I did let the server know that I had a wheat allergy when ordering.

Staff was knowledgeable about their gluten free options. Had quite a few options to choose from. They were out of their cauliflower polenta, so I had steak tacos. Pretty spicy, but very tasty! I’d go back for sure.

This is one of my favorite restaurants. I enjoy their chicken, cauliflower, and flourless cake. I've eaten here at least a dozen of times and it never disappoints and I’ve never had any issues.

Ate here once a couple weeks ago. They were incredibly busy for being early evening, which made me nervous. Menu isn’t huge in general, so limited GF options. They did understand my needs due to Celiac & mentioned the precautions they use. Pricey for what you get. Chia Seed Pudding was delicious though.

Staff was extremely knowledgeable about cross contamination and their gf items were clearly labeled. They assured and reassured me that they’d change gloves, ensure clean surfaces, no fillers in their sauces, etc. Unfortunately although I felt great about my order, it tested positive w/ the Nima and I couldn’t eat. Thankful to have been spared a painful glutening but sad to see that even w/ all their assurances of a safe meal, gluten was still detected. Our waiter was very apologetic and seemed embarrassed at the fact that although the manager came and apologized, he didn’t give a discount or comp my husband’s meal or even offer a different plate even though I had to sit there unable to eat. I asked them to remove my plate off the bill and they did. Sad experience overall for someone w/ Celiac but thankful for my Nima.

Ate here last night, food was tasty and the waitress was very knowledgeable of Celiac. I had the Chared Cauliflower appetizer, which BDW was delish, the baked chicken and the antioxidant beverage. No reaction at all....will definitely go back!!!!

I've had nothing but success as a Celiac at True Food Kitchen. My favorite dish is the roasted chicken and several of the many gluten free/dairy free desserts. All of the staff seems extremely knowledgeable about food allergies/Celiac, and ensures that extra care will be taken to make sure I don't get sick.

Knowledgable staff. Manager brought out my food and made sure to clarify that everything was prepared gluten free. This is my second time here and I feel very safe.
