Waitress was very friendly and checked everything with the kitchen. I only ordered an appetizer (bureaus and tomatoes, no croutons. It was delicious) because we just stopped for a snack, but they can make pasta GF in separate water they said, and flatbread on cauliflower crust. Waitress let me know flatbread would be in same oven, but in its own pan. Shared fryer unfortunately. They have items marked GF on menu but only the ones that need substitutions to be made that way (pasta, flatbread) and a lot more items in the menu are already GF

Glutened!!! Ordered the gluten free pasta for my child. They gave us gluten noodles. This is obvious because now she is getting violently ill. Unforgivable.

I was so impressed with the upstairs cafe. The waitresses were all super knowledgeable about gluten and they double and triple checked our order to make sure they knew who needed gluten free food. They had brown rice pasta for my daughter and she was so happy.

Nordstrom Cafe always a classic. Our server was awesome! Understood celiac and was able to accommodate! Had a very nice lunch. They offer gf pasta which I did not have but it was easy to cobble together a few GF items to eat.

Absolutely unsafe. I ordered the cilantro chicken lime salad with an allergen note, and found a single strip of tortilla in my salad. I know for a fact their tortilla strips are wheat based (and I verified this with management) and while they were apologetic it still seemed like a pretty big mess up, especially since they knew it was for a celiac customer and were supposedly using extra safe practices. I definitely won’t be eating here again. At least they comped the salad....

Excellent food, but should be listed as $$. I had an $18 Salmon salad. They have many gluten-free possible items, be sure to let them know. Excellent service. I did not get sick.

I’ve eaten here once pre-Nima sensor and once post. I had the same meal each time (kale apple salad and creme brûlée). The salad is labeled GF, and creme brûlée is naturally GF. I tested the salad and it Nima tested GF, I was assured both dishes would be prepared safely. Did not get sick either time.

Ordered a salad with grilled chicken that said gluten free. Got so sick right away and was glutened with cross contamination. Blacked out at table as I have celiac. Also let my server know about my allergy. EMT’s came. Manager said they would call me and never did😢😢

If you are celiac and need to eat safely, this restaurant can accommodate. The GM is celiac and has a separate set of kitchen utensils and pans that are not cross contaminated. Ask for the GM.

I've ordered pasta here. It's okay. However, I was served normal spaghetti once. I took a bite and asked the waitress if it was gluten free since it didn't seem right. She went back to the kitchen, and came back out and informed me it was the regular pasta. Awesome. I haven't eaten there since. It's super uncool to be so careless about food allergies.

Staff tries very hard to make any accommodations requested to insure a GF meal. I usually bring my own GF bun or bread. They do not have a GF menu but will make suggestions or adjustments.

Food is delicious, but they need to post more GF options, and staff need to exude more confidence and clarity about ingredients.

The staff is very helpful and occasionally will send out the chef to assure accuracy. I have always gotten the salmon cooked in a pan instead of the grill (other allergies) also salads with chicken and shrimp, risotto and the pasta cooked in a separate pan/waterThey make a huge effort to please you!

They had no idea what I meant by gluten free. And they were rude. (Well, one girl was rude; the other apologized for her, which is still not okay.) No way will I ever come back.

A few nice GF options. If not too busy, you can take a menu, sit down to read the menu at a table, then get up to order. It is not terribly convenient & would go more often if full service. Will never go if crowded.

Excellent food, takes some extra time of you order GF pasta, as they make it to order. Staff well educated on GF diet & CC issues in kitchen. Many options, clearly marked on menu by a small " cross" next to menu item. All pastas can be offered GF, upon request. These are not marked GF on the menu ( FYI) , you must request these. Multiple GF desserts that are amazing!

Gluten free options, and very good. It is a semi-service restaurant, where you order and pay first and then they serve everything at your table. Very professional,good service. One star off because I wish it were full service like some other locations.

Bummer. Only have GF pasta, and it takes 30 minutes. Didn't tell us that when we ordered it. Sloooow and not many options for my 10 year old with cd. They ended up buying the kids pasta, it came out really cold. :(.

Nordstrom Cafe saved the day when we found out that Margaritaville at Navy Pier can no longer do GF. Fantastic food and service, all staff was knowledgable about allergens. Mom and Dad had shrimp over risotto with asparagus and the kids had mac & cheese. A pleasant surprise!
