There were lots of options, the staff was really knowledgable and I didn't get sick! Woohoo! I have multiple allergies and I still had lots of options. The food was really good with lots of flavor.

They did not know what gluten was and she didn’t even ask another staff member. I had the menu pulled up and was trying to get her guidance. I walked out did not eat.

They used to be safe and I ate here in and off for awhile but in the recent months it has not been safe. I ordered the shrimp kabobs with rice and veggies and there was orzo pasta with the rice. I called and talked to manager and he said that the orzo pasta and rice are in separate bowls with separate spoons and he didn’t know how that happened. I would not eat here

The food quality has also gone down in the last couple of months

Not careful with cross contamination. Said specifically no pita and they put pita on my plate. Got sick everytime I went there no matter what I ate. No more.

The menu on the wall when you walk in doesn’t have the GF items marked, but everything is marked on their online website and they have a paper menu behind the register that has the GF items marked as well. They assured us they would let their kitchen staff know about our order so extra precautions were taken. They have a good number of gluten free menu items. We ordered the chicken kabobs with potato salad and Greek salad sides and a kids meal with grilled chicken tenders and fruit. The food was very good. The woman at the register was helpful but they didn’t know which sauces were GF off hand so you might want to have their online menu pulled up when you order. Their kitchen staff didn’t know which sauces were gluten free either and weren’t super helpful with that. Overall it was a good experience and we would go back.

I heard the manager yell back to the cooks that a gluten allergy was coming, then she made sure that when the ticket printed, they knew which one was mine and I heard her make sure they changed their gloves before touching any part of mine! Very good experience!

I had to get them to remake my salad 3 times on 2 visits. Once they asked me to just take the bread off and eat it.

I find it somewhere between school cafeteria and hospital food quality.

They aren’t trained on cross contamination or have a clue what gluten is.

Almost all the items on the menu are gluten free minus the pita bread. They are each marked. Had the chicken salad and steak kabobs. Very good and didn’t get sick!

I said to the guy 3 times to not put pita bread on my order. And when he handed it to me in the bag I asked again and he assured me it there was no pita. We get back to our hotel room and open the box and there is pita. I was not able to eat the salad. I was so mad.

Staff here need better training. And also need to learn how to tell the truth.

They do have gluten free options and this used to be one of my favorites, but today I found the wait staff to be unkeep with straggly hair not away from face serving food. The bathrooms were dirty also. I might avoid next time, although I really like Zoe kitchen chains for gluten free options.

straggly hair not put up serving food and the bathroom was dirty.

The food here is pretty decent. I always order through a manager and specify exactly what I can and cannot eat. The manager always verbally communicates my needs (upon my request) to be completely gluten free to the cooks and I don't have any issues with cross contamination. Being very specific and saying things like "no pita bread" in addition to saying gluten free on the ticket is helpful.

My order was brought to the table with pita bread on it, however the shift manager said he was happy to redo the order for me. He did and there were no problems. FYI I did notice on the allergen list that their greek dressing does have gluten. It’s a good place but some extra care needs to be taken by a diner with Celiac’s.

I don't recommend this location any more. This use to be my #1 place to eat in Norman, OK. Today was the 4th time my meal has not been gluten free (allergy) this year. They use to get it right every time but this year they haven't been.

Today they brought my shrimp kabobs with pita chips. The server asked if she could just take them off & seemed upset when I asked her to remake my meal. It usually to takes 10 minutes to make a new order but today it only took 2 minutes.I was leary. By the 2nd bite I started getting asthma symptoms. Minutes later I started coughing & my throat started closing... I am ok but I won't eat here any more.

This will be the second time I've eaten Zoe's since going strictly gluten free, and they have been very accommodating both times. I get the Mediterranean Trio bowl with grilled chicken, and substitute extra quinoa for the pesto farro. The cashier immediately told the kitchen that the dish was gluten free, and the manager was knowledgeable about what's in each dish.

I’m newly gluten free and didn’t realize how hard it can be to find gf options at restaurants. Mediterranean is one of my favorite food cultures, and Zoës doesn’t disappoint. They have everything labeled with vegetarian, gf, vegan and whole30 options. It was so so simple to make a whole meal with sides and a main from what’s available as gf, and I didn’t even miss the pita bread (my weakness). I’m not celiac, just gluten sensitive, so I can’t speak on how good they are about celiac, but the options are tasty and great.
