I'm not sure if it was gluten, but something really bothered my system. They don't have a separate fryer, so no fried items. Very few GF options.

Food wasn't great. It was heavy and greasy. Flavorful but didn't make me feel good after eating.

However, I want to warn you that they induce customers into double tipping. They already add a 20% fee on all meals. Then when you pay, they offer the standard tipping option. I almost tipped 20%, which would have totaled to 40% in tips/fees above menu price. So I didn't tip extra. It's unconscionable and unethical. They should just be honest and raise food prices if they can't afford to pay their employees.

Server was knowledgeable and quickly told me the fryer was shared and not Celiac safe. She was also clear which items could be modified for Celiac. I got the soufflé pancake and it was delicious. I had no issues at all!

I wanted so badly to like this place. I’ve been multiple times, and been glutened twice.

The food is quite nice, and the vast majority of the staff are knowledgeable. The ambiance is great and it is a dedicated vegan establishment.

There is a GF pasta option which I tended to get. There are two styles, one with shells and one that looks more circular. The one with shells is the item that is made with gluten. I was served those once and got incredibly sick.

Today I got an order of them with a GF burger. The first time came out raw and cold. I sent them back, and they came back with a topping that contained gluten. The third time, I tried one bite and nearly immediately felt sick.

It’s not worth the risk. The old saying ‘fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me’ really applies here in my case. I will say that for folks that do not have a severe gluten sensitivity that this establishment is a great option. But for celiacs, don’t stake your well-being on eating here.

Before going to dinner here I researched the menu and saw that there where lots of gluten free options…or so I thought. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about what would be safe for me to eat which I appreciated (she has a family member with celiac). Unfortunately, a lot of the labeled gluten free items I was interested in were at risk for cross contamination and not celiac safe…especially the salads which which bummed me out. They don’t have a dedicated fryer, but do state that on the menu so I knew before going. I ended up with the risotto which was fine but definitely not my fav and super spicy. I didn’t get glutened thanks to my waitress…not sure if all of the staff is as knowledgeable as her or not. We probably won’t go again but it’s a cool/funky spot and I appreciated the fact that it’s all vegan.

Pleasant dining that is not pretentious. Lots of green plants that help the atmosphere. A little loud but overall nice energy. Vegan and vegetarian. No gluten free fryer unfortunately. Our server was EXCELLENT and super great with knowing what is celiac friendly vs GF. They get baguettes and baked goods from Deby’s GF bakery. I had soup and risotto and was too full for dessert but they had great options. I will be back. Great for dinner or brunch. Date spot.

They were so cautious and knowledgeable about celiac and had many many options on the menu. I had the buffalo tempeh sandwich with a Caesar salad and a side of Mac n cheese. The Mac n cheese is worth skipping. It is good but I honestly didn’t think it was good enough for the calories. The sandwich and Caesar salad was 10/10. If you’re going with somebody who isn’t celiac, my husband had the Big Rig breakfast and he loved it so much he said, “It so good, I could cry.” Highly recommend this place!

The menu denotes gluten free and gluten free optional items, but there is no dedicated fryer for the GF items so you end up with as few options as you might have elsewhere. Even though I often settle on a salad, with minimal risk for cross contamination, I have gotten sick from this place three times now. I’m scared to go back :(

On the menu, they have tons of gluten free options. However, several things I wanted to order (chicken and waffles) have a shared fryer and are not actually gluten free. That was a bit disappointing. but our server was very knowledgeable on what was actually gluten free and what was not. I had the French toast with fruit and it was great!

Even though they say they have many options for GF they really don’t. Do not have a separate fryer and even says that on their menu. When questioning the waitress she said “Oh it is only if you have celiac’s that you shouldn’t eat that”. I won’t be back.

The GF options are very misleading, because everything is prepared in a shared kitchen with shared equipment, so if you have celiac there's very little that's safe. The food is very expensive and the service is terrible.

Yesterday was our first dining experience at Watercourse Foods and my gluten-free dinner was amazing. Our waiter was so friendly and knowledgable...just plain fabulous. We were all so impressed by the ambience, the staff, and all the little details that make Watercourse so special. We are already planning our next visit.

Yummy food! Just be sure to let your waiter know you are celiac or very sensitive. Anything fried is not safe for Celiacs as they do not have a dedicated fryer. The scout cookie tastes just like a Girl Scout Samoa cookie! So good!

First time I ate there I did not feel well. Decided to give it a second chance and made sure to tell the waiter about our previous experience and he said he would make sure our food was safe. It was wonderful and neither my sister or I (both Celiacs) got sick. We will eat there again
