I am a super sensitive celiac. My daughter is also celiac. We both had the filet and also the cauliflower appetizer. Everything was really delicious. Best filet I’ve had in a while. I loved the blue cheese on top. I also had a side of the almond rice and pineapple crème brûlée for dessert.No problems at all.

Items are clearly marked “GF” but I would be leery…chips (with salsa and guacamole) which are marked gluten free, are cooked in a shared fryer. Found out the hard way…was definitely glutened. Called the next day and they confirmed my suspicions. If you’re celiac or truly gluten-sensitive, I would really press them about how the food is prepared.

I’m very sensitive celiac and my girlfriend is allergic to peanuts, tree nuts, sesame, and shellfish. Our server was helpful and made us feel comfortable, which is hard to accomplish honestly. Our food was SO GOOD. I had mahi mahi and she had the salmon. Highly recommend this place.

Be careful! Several items are listed as GF, however they are fried in a shared fryer, and would have cross contamination. Server was not knowledgeable, I had to talk to the chef directly. Tried the Mahi Mahi - not worth the price.

I called ahead of time and was told they could follow an allergy protocol when preparing my Celiac son’s dinner. The server was extremely accommodating and aiming to please. Although there were not many options, my son thoroughly enjoyed a simple piece of chicken ( cooked in a fresh pan) with a side of tropical fruits. The server also brought tortilla chips out for him that she explained are prepared in the fryer each morning before foods with gluten are introduced. I was skeptical about the chips, but he really wanted to try them. He never complained of feeling glutened, which would typically happen with cross- contamination.

Our meal at Tommy Bahamas was amazing! I had the Ahi Poke with taro chips and the Seared Ahi Special, both were so fresh and delicious! They recently installed a dedicated gluten free fryer so we were able to have a side of French fries which were honestly some of the best I’ve had. Definitely celiac safe and so yummy!!

Gluten-free and gluten-free by request items are clearly marked on their menu. Staff were friendly and there was live music outside. My wife has Celiac and ordered their Mahi Mahi Bowl and she really liked it. You have to order and start a tab like you are at a bar which was kind of strange but good experience otherwise.

This restaurant was very committed to a safe dining experience-they provide a list of allergen ingredients, check and re-check to make sure all dietary restrictions are protected and if you call ahead they will prepare fish or meat to your specifications. I was very impressed though this restaurant food is not my favorite, it is nice to feel safe when invited.

We visited to ask questions the day before we went, and found out that there’s a kids menu that’s not listed online. Since it’s our 11yo that is celiac, I was excited that the chef reported being confident that there would be no cross contamination for two items: grilled chicken with veggies ($10), and steak medallions with veggies ($15). There’s a kids sundae that can be GF by leaving off the cookie crumbs so it’s vanilla ice cream with Hershey’s chocolate syrup. This place is always super busy, so I was nervous, but we ate there yesterday and he’s fine. It’s a 4 star rating instead of 5 just because the server was a bit rushed and didn’t take the time to reassure us. The adult GF menu isn’t that extensive, but has some good options. Best patio in Palm Desert.

I’ve eaten here at least 5 times and I’ve always felt safe. Their gluten free menu is at the back under the vegetarian options. I’ve always enjoyed the chips and guacamole to start. The ribs are especially very good, and I’ve had the creme brûlée for dessert (with a modification). Be sure to ask about the fries. They originally were in a shared frier but the last time I was there they were fried separately so I could eat them.

Whether or not it was caused by gluten, I was sickened, as was another in our party without food issues. I won’t return and don’t recommend it. There are other, better options in St Armands.

Gluten Sensitive Menu-that should be the first sign it’s not safe for Celiacs since it absolves the Restaurent of literally all liability, but I hoped they’d surprise me. I was wrong:

Despite a conversation about the chips being fried in a shared fryer, my appetizer was served surrounded by, you guessed it, said chips. The best part is that my entree side dish had a fried wonton in it (hint-it wasn’t supposed to be there). So, celiacs beware!!! The server didn’t seem to care nor was any amount taken off the bill. Unacceptable.

Went in for a quick lunch and loved the GF options. The bartender was extremely helpful and considerate regarding Celiac Disease, the ribs were delicious (the mashed potatoes were a little flavorless, but still edible) and the gf Creme Brûlée that comes in a pineapple was so good! Will definitely return!

Very few options for gluten free. Staff unsure of what is gluten free or not. But she did list ingredients of glaze. so that was good. But only two real options. Overall staff isn’t trained. Just not a priority here. The pork chop was gluten free and it was very good. I just wouldn’t go back.
