They have a GF menu and it’s easy to understand. I had a steak with a cream sauce, carrots, asparagus and Parmesan mash potatoes. It was lovely. I’ve actually had this same meal at the Yard House in Sacramento and both times it went very well.

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 had the Waitress double check all of the ingredients in my order and they also have an allergy alert on the computer to let the kitchen staff know.

I had a lettuce wrapped burger and it was delicious. I skipped the fries because they don’t have a dedicated gf fryer. I’m happy to say I didn’t have any reactions after eating here!

Although they don’t have the menu marked for gluten free, they do have it logged in the computer. Just order what you want and they will substitute out gluten containing ingredients.

They provide a lot of gluten-sensitive choices, but they do not offer a Celiac kitchen.

I had a Beyond Burger with vegan cheese and the gluten-free bun was the best I've ever had.

Not a place if you have celiac. Ordered a burger, no bun, no toppings with side of mashed potatoes. The manager came out and asked if I had celiac... wow I thought! Someone knows what the world celiac means?!!! Well no they do not. I was glutened within 20 minutes. My other celiac friend went here for a salad on lunch break, it has croutons on it. After going though her allergy and also being asked if she had celiac so they can prepare separate. NOT CELIAC SAFE

Wait staff is not knowledgable and there seems to be no effort put into making "gluten-friendly" items safe for celiacs.

Options are very limited. This is the "we have salad" school of thought in serving gluten-free customers. Sorry, but a salad is not enough to bring me back.

This is just another chain restaurant making a half-a$$ effort to serve gluten-free customers just to say that they did. No concern shown for celiacs or others with medically-necessary gluten-free diets.

The staff was great! I ordered my food and made the waiter aware of my allergy. He made sure to read my order back to me and then the manager came over to check in about my allergy and noted that I had celiac. He said the kitchen would make all precautions to avoid cross contamination. Very impressed. I felt safe eating and did not get sick.

Only negative was the hostess not being educated on gluten free (was told she didnt know if I could order from the gluten free menu at 10 am)

Had a decent gluten free menu. I dont believe they have a dedicated fryer or GF buns. We ate here twice and they made me plain eggs the one day for breakfast on request (wasnt that hungry ) and assured me several times that it was kept separate from everything else. Also ordered a quinoa/beet salad to go (to take on the plane) . It was delicious and packaged nicely to take with and was a good size. Prices are very affordable too.

I live nearby and love The Village, so I have eaten here quite a few times. I always specify that I'm ordering from the gluten free menu and request dairy free as well. If I order the lettuce wrapped Beyond Burger I don't have any problems but they rarely get my order right if I order tacos. Yesterday my shrimp tacos were served to me on flour tortillas even though the server said she requested gluten free. When I asked another employee if the rice was gluten free he said "Yes, it should be" (that answer was a bit "iffy" for me). Luckily I am only gluten sensitive, not celiac, but if I was celiac I would not feel confident eating here. They did prepare a new meal for me and comp my meal but I'd rather have a safe meal in the first place.

Asked about gluten free when we arrived and they brought out a "gluten friendly" menu. Had a disclaimer at the bottom that they can't guarantee no cross contamination. When I asked further, the waitress got the manager for me, who was coeliac herself. She said they will cook in a separate pan for me and told me which sides I could have. I had a cheese burger with a GF bun, with mashed potato and Caeser salad with no croutons. I found it to be very coeliac friendly, but it may not have been if the manager wasn't there.

Giving 1 star because I can’t give 0 stars. The food was delicious and staff was helpful but I still managed to get extremely sick with the worst gluten reaction I’ve had in a long time. Even after confirming with our waitress that everything was GF as it came out, this food was clearly unsafe for me to eat and my last night in Vegas was ruined. Do not eat here if you have a high sensitivity or Celiac.

The staff knew which Gf options were available. BUT when my lamb burger was delivered and I asked if it was GF bun the server said yes. One bite in the other waitress came back and said they gave me the wrong sandwich and said they’d remake it. The manager then came and said not to worry as the bun was right but the meat was beef and not lamb.

However when the new sandwich came it was on an obviously different bun. A clearly GF bun, so the first bun had been a regular gluten bun!!! A free meal doesn’t make up for health impacts.

I really appreciate the vegan and gluten free options but the quality control needs to be improved! My Beyond Burger came out on a regular bun. Luckily I realized there was no way the bun was GF and requested it be remade before I took a bite! Could have gone very wrong for me otherwise. Our server was awesome in recommending I get with with a lettuce wrap as their GF bun isn’t vegan. Hoping next visit will be a 5 star one!

The food has to go through the manager to be allergy approved. The gf bun fir the burger was fantastic. Servers were very careful- we sat at the bar and ate so that may have been a help.

Appreciated having a separate gluten free menu and ordered the porcini encrusted halibut with mashed potatoes, asparagus, and bok choy with porcini cream sauce. Waitress was well informed of GF celiac needs. Also, a staff member separate from waitress visited table to confirm they would change gloves and take precautions with my meal prep. Same member also inquired about my family’s satisfaction with the condition of the bathroom upon our exit from the restroom area. Good customer service! Food was delicious too!! No tummy upset and I was able to enjoy time on the National Mall after the meal in comfort.

We had a GREAT waiter. He and his manager both were so intent on finding out answers for me, like whether or not the margaritas were gluten free. Together we figured it out. They are. I ordered the sushi dish off the gluten free menu, and it doesn't share a dish with anything that might cause a cross contamination issue. Overall, we had a lovely experience here and I trusted the waiter because he was very diligent and we worked together. I didn't get sick after eating here.
