This is a salad bar and that’s it. But what a salad bar it is. Fresh ingredients. An abundance of options. Items on the bar are marked GF and everything has its own utensil grabber. The employees make your salad, you just walk down the bar and let them know what you want.

Delicious, quick lunch. Portions were great. Line server immediately washed hands and changed gloves when I said I had a gluten allergy and then she took me all the way down the line of choices. Options were clearly marked GF on the front board and manager explained they have a dedicated prep area and utensils for gluten items so there was very little chance of cross contamination. Will definitely be back!

They are certified Gluten free, let them know when you walk into the door. They make every effort to make sure you are not cross contaminated. New comment...the workers on this day 8/5/20 did not change their gloves and was grabbing the items with their hands instead of using the spoons in the bowls. Talked to the manager on duty, she didn't act to concerned. Not thinking I will be back 😕

I told each employee that I needed gluten free and they point to the ingredients list. I had one employee use the same thongs to get pita chips for a customer and then toss my salad. The employees do not understand celiac at all.

Not celiac friendly, the servers(?) have extremely varying knowledge of what gluten even is and they take almost all the ingredients with their hands, so they touch something with gluten and could come back up the line and touch the lettuce or whatever.

Staff was so knowledgeable and so kind! They served me out of all new containers underneath the counter and would have any ingredient that wasn’t prepped underneath brought out from the back. A sigh of relief going somewhere like this knowing you won’t get sick.

They changed their gloves and one person made my salad all the way down the line, grabbing toppings from the cooler, not the top to avoid cross contamination. Everything is labeled well and the bread/croutons are only at the very end of the line.

The staff was very knowledgeable and accommodating. They knew what Celiac Disease was and were sure to build my salad in a separate area. I recommend ordering online, because they read the notes and take this stuff seriously. This is my new go-to restaurant for traveling.

This is basically a fancy subway like salad bar. They are “certified gluten-free sensitive”. I’m not sure what this certification means exactly but they did seem to know what they were doing when it comes to cross contamination. If you tell them you have a gluten allergy they are instructed to get a new server with clean hands and clean gloves. They will walk you down the aisle and open all new salad components for you. All of their salad dressings are gluten-free and made a gluten-free facility in Houston. All of the salad components are chopped on separate cutting boards with clean knives. The bread and pita chips are made in a separate kitchen away from the salad

I’m sorry I just had to balance out their rating! This is Find Me Gluten Free... not find me Vegan. It’s important for those w Celiac to have reliable ratings on here. Of course the bread is not gluten free. But there are endless salad/vegetable, fruit, dressing, and protein options that are.

While the concept of this place is cool and the salad was delicious, I got horribly glutened here. It’s sad as they could so easily avoid cross contamination if they had separate spoons/tongs for every ingredient instead of using their hands with the same gloves that touch croutons at the end of the line and go back to the beginning and contaminate everything. While they did change their gloves for me, it made no difference as like I mentioned before, things were cross contaminated. If you don’t have celiac, or a severe gluten sensitivity I think you may be ok, but if you’re celiac or have a severe intolerance stay FAR away from here.

Go here to eat safely if you are Celiac! Super salads in regular or large size bowl, delicious salad dressings, choice of 3 tasty soups (broccoli cheese is my fav!), meat, shrimp or salmon choices, you will be full when you leave! Just DO NOT eat the croutons or any of the bread of course. Eat in or out (but it is way too hot in Houston summers during the day!). I have NEVER been glutened here.

Gluten free soup and salad. Gets 4 stars because it is a buffet style and there is a small risk of cross contamination with bread crumbs and such. You guys have to keep an eye on your bowl.

I arrived here to meet a friend for lunch right after the doctors appointment where she said I probably have celiac (not even knowing what it meant to eat out)...wow I picked the right place! Made me feel welcomed, put new gloves on and got toppings out of separate containers under the counter. Everything I wanted was available. Even the cashier was reminded to not touch my tray.

My wife was diagnosed with Celiac disease years ago and has multiple food allergies. We went to Salata for the first time, and as I was paying for the food, I saw tears welling up in her eyes.

She said she couldn't remember the last time she'd been treated so kindly at a restaurant. Fresh gloves, separate containers for ingredients, and a knowledgeable server made her feel safe, but it was the feeling of being welcome that made her day.

Her server, Dina, and the manager, Olga, were amazing, and as we left they said, "Next time you come back, just let us know, and we'll take good care of you." They should add compassion as a menu item, because it was there in abundance.

When I said I was Celiac, the lady immediately changed her gloves and called another person out. She got all fresh items from under the bar that hadn't been touched yet. Followed me all the way down the line. Very safe and I had no ill effects!

Staff does not always change gloves after handling the bread and crouton items. I said something and the server offered to change gloves, but I declined to let my son eat there because I had concerns over how many other times gloves contaminated with gluten had been used previously in all of the salad items.

I have to uodate my review. Place used to be safe, but now there are so many people eating there, and so many bread crumbs where they toss the salads. My poor daughter was glutened a few months ago. Too afraid to go back. Shame. I wouldn't trust the soup. It's right next to the bread, and there are crumbs everywhere.

No problem at all with doing gluten free. The broccoli soup is really good! As far as the salad, I felt like they were super skimpy on toppings. I kept having to tell them more, more, more. . . and in the end my salad was still mostly lettuce! I guess I like going to Jason's Deli better where I can get twice as much for my money.

Extremely sensitive to gluten. I have ate there for almost about a month. I didn't have any reactions till one day it got me. I was sick for about a week. There is so much cross contamination if you really pay attention as how food is prepared. Will not be going there ever again.

Great concept but poorly executed. The staff was very accommodating to change their gloves as the bowl got passed through the line. However, part way through the meal I look over and the workers who were at the beginning of the line (the lettuce) had made their way down to the end of the line (the bread) and went directly back to dishing out the lettuce. All well and good, except that there was no change of gloves. This could easily be fixed by getting scoops for ingredients, changing gloves, or just having each employee stay at one section of the line. Beyond that food was good and decent portions but too much so on the cross contamination!!!

Negative 2 stars is more accurate. This place advertises assistance with selecting a gluten free meal and 2 employees had no idea what I was even saying when I stated the phrase "gluten-free". Thankfully, there were labels on the counter to assist me better than the employees. The salad is good and so far, there hasn't been a reaction to their GF/vegan tomato basil soup. The employees need better training for those with diet preferences. Needless to say, I will not be returning.
