Mostly this place gets it right. It's one of the few go to places near where I work where I can go that I can depend on for a gluten free meal. They have a gluten free menu, however you have to specifically tell your server to remove specific items from the regular dish. The menu tells you what to remove to make it gluten free. Once I ordered from the gluten free menu and the server served me my tacos, I bit into them and had a horrific sinking feeling as I realized the tortillas were FLOUR not corn. The sweet lady that waited on me was very sorry, but I don't think she realized how devastating her mistake was. I got severely sick. She asked about my disease and what my symptoms were, which was nice of her, but it was too late for me that day. Since then, she has served me and there has been no problems. I order the Carne Asada (steak tacos) a la carte with corn tortillas and as long as there are no flour tortillas I am fine and don't get sick. I'm also allergic to dairy so I also make sure there is no creamy dressing or cheese, which there is not, but I mention also my dairy allergy as a precaution. The other thing I order is the spicy tuna roll. I get conflicting info about this food item from servers. Twice I have had two different servers claim that it is not gluten free even though it's on the gluten free menu with the caveat to not serve it with the soy dressing. When these servers have talked to the kitchen the chef claims that the tuna is premade and has gluten, however I have ordered this item dozens of times in the GF version without any problems. Perhaps they are being overly cautious?? Who knows?? When you order the spicy tuna roll, it comes with three sauces, sirracha, sesame oil and soy vinegarette. Have them omit the soy vinegarette because it IS NOT gluten free. They used to put ginger chips on top, which were also not gluten free, but they don't use those chips any more. There are some other items on the menu that are gluten free (steak, salads, etc). There food tastes pretty good, but sometimes service can be relatively slow and their prices are guaranteed to be high. With careful ordering the wait staff for the most part are understanding and helpful. UPDATE: The last time I ate there I had to order the spicy tuna roll 3 different times and ran out of time to eat in restaurant so had to take the final version to-go, but it STILL made me sick. The first iteration clearly had mayo or something creamy mixed in with the tuna. (I explained I was allergic to both dairy and gluten when ordering), for the second attempt of the dish the tuna was clearly mixed with something that looked suspiciously like soy sauce, the third time, the tuna looked "clean" but it still made me very sick I immediately got the worst migraine of my life that lasted throughout the next day. Normally I came sleep migraines off. I was miserable at work the rest of the day and missed an important meeting the next day because I was still so sick. To Yard House's credit they did comp my whole meal, however I'm so scared to eat there after this horrible experience. It was super busy at the restaurant, so I'm thinking that possible cross-contamination was the issue. It's too bad because I'd usually drop about $30+ each meal there, but I can't risk getting sick there any more. You might get lucky and be okay here, but who wants to play roulette with your health. 😬 With tons of other restaurants in the area that seem to better understand gluten/dairy allergies, I will be eating elsewhere in the future.
How can a restaurant claim to have a GF menu that simply tells you to tell your server to remove most items from your dish and then pay full price! The Yard House is insulting to us and if they don't change we should boycott them. When I saw the menu I walked out.
Decent enough service. A decent number of options, but the menu wasn't created with us in mind. I didn't feel yucky, but I don't think it's probably Celiac friendly.
Their gf menu consists of telling you to "take off the bread". Even their bruschetta and dips aren't served with corn tortilla chips as an option instead of the flatbread.
Their French fries are not gluten free and their gluten free options are VERY limited; not much available. One star rating for at least knowing about gf eating requirements.
I eat here a lot and have yet to get sick. I usually order the César salad with chicken and of course they put no croutons. I’ve also had the lettuce wrapped burger with a salad on the side and it had great flavor! I admit there is probably a risk of cross contamination but they’ve always seemed very careful- a manager or chef always brings my food out separately and they really seem to have a knowledge of what a serious gluten allergy is. So far so good!
I had a very bad experience here. They brought out a salad covered in croutons after I was very clear with them about my gluten intolerance. They took it back to kitchen and brought a “new” salad. It became very clear to me later that they had just taken croutons off the salad and brought back to me. I was very sick for days after eating there. I will never go back as they don’t understand gluten free.
The staff was not knowledgeable about the gluten free options. The restaurant has a gluten free menu which I order from for takeout. The chicken avocado sandwich came with a bun. Other than the lack of understanding and bum which was not gluten free (cross contamination) the place is great. Be careful.
Amazing service, Great food. Recommend the Mediterranean Salmon. I am very very easy to get cross contaminated and I felt great after my meal, Really good chefs and a good location for someone with celiac disease. I’m considering going back tonight for seconds🤤
I went to Yardhouse last night with a group for my birthday. I asked for a gluten free menu, which I thought had a lot of wonderful choices. My waitress, Haylie, was very thoughtful throughout the process. Even commenting and writing down gluten free when I didn’t remind her. My friends, unbeknownst to me, pulled her aside to tell her it was my birthday and she worked with them to figure out an option because they usually give cake. They’ve just gotten in a new creme brûlée cheesecake. It was INCREDIBLE and my friends told me she was the one that prompted the change in desserts, again without being reminded. Very happy with our service and I haven’t had any side effects! I had the blackened shrimp tacos, extraordinary! -I’m not as sensitive to cross contamination-
This restaurant is not celiac friendly. Their "gluten sensitive" menu says there can be cross contamination. The options are very bland with no seasonings and are over priced; there are no gluten free buns or fries which is disappointing in a bar-like restaurant. The atmosphere is very loud. Not impressed.
Found restaurant through this site's positive ratings. Ate a late lunch (around 3 on a Friday). It was a pretty day with a growing crowd but not yet dinnertime. They did have a gluten free menu. Waiter not at all personable, I asked to speak directly with manager. My 6 y/o (with celiac and food allergies) only wanted burger with cheese (no bun as I had our own) with side of fruit or vege. Manager not very encouraging or accommodating. Said they could do the burger but did not offer options beyond fruit. Reviewed how they would safely prep burger and explained no dedicated cooking area/protocols. He, too, acted as though he didn't want to be bothered. Meal was safe but would not recommend overall. Maybe celiac friendly if you want a salad or happen to be served/managed by someone different.
Ordered salmon kale salad from the gluten sensitive menu after explaining carefully to the server that it was extremely important that food was cooked separately and no cross contamination could be tolerated. The salad then arrived with Croutons on it. Went through the entire discussion again with the server and was assured that it would be cooked again from scratch. Second salad arrived without croutons and assurances that it was cooked separately. Feeling ill within an hour of leaving the place. Unbelievable they have no clue what gluten free means.
The food was good but the burger section needed a little care they didn’t say if they had a gluten free bun or not so it had came out and was wrapped in lettuce. The server was very notable and my food came out separately a manager also had came out with my food. The server I had was very kind and knowledgeable, thanks Matt! I would definitely go there again though.
Had a separate GF menu & waiter was super helpful. Our food took a while because the cook put a burger we ordered on a regular bun instead of GF bun. Before the food was delivered to us, the manager came to our table to tell us of the mistake in the kitchen, and to assure us they were completely redoing our order which we appreciated. We felt they were really making an effort to respect our dietary needs.
I've tried The Yard House in Las Vegas and felt great afterwards. This one is Northridge was the same. They gladly substitute items for others if you have additional food allergies. Would give five stars except for staff which lagged but it could have been an off day.
Starting with the good: the food was tasty, staff knowledgeable and helpful, and they even have a gluten sensitive menu. Why three stars? For starters, the GF items are what I'd consider "low effort". Yes, a salad is gluten free. A hamburger patty wrapped in lettuce is gluten free. A corn-shelled taco is gluten free. Anything fried (like tortilla chips) are fried in a shared fryer. It appears that they don't go out of their way to have actual gluten-free items though. Not even a gluten free pizza crust, which most places order frozen in bulk anyways. My point is that, if you're in Seattle, I think there are so many better ways you can enjoy gluten free food from places that will go out of their way to keep gluten-free items in stock.
Lots of options on the GF menu. Gluten free beers (IPA and Lager). I had the red quinoa salad with chicken. It's was delicious. Only down side, which could have caused contamination, the waiter was holding my dish and my friend's pasta in the same hand. But I didn't get sick.
I have celiac. Ordered salad from GF menu and it came with croutons. Server was not concerned. Also ordered the ahi poke stack from GF menu and it came with soy sauce. Server was unsure if soy sauce was GF and unconcerned. Suffered for a few days after meal.
I ordered street tacos and asked for them to be gluten free. The waiter who brought them to the table said "gluten free street tacos" when he set them down. He came back a minute later to say the rice on the plate was not gluten free and he would bring me the gluten free rice. He did. Now, the rest is partially my fault because I should have stopped him and sent the whole thing back and I didn't. I took a bite of the taco. It tasted funny. It was a wheat tortilla. I spent twenty minutes in the bathroom while my husband dealt with the manager. They comped the meal, but not without a little back and forth.
Staff is very knowledgeable and attentive. I have celiac plus several additional food allergies. The manager came to my table twice with suggestions, and substitutions to meet my needs. Very friendly and attentive. Plus the food was fantastic!I will be back again!
