The food here is fantastic and the service was spot on without being stuffy. We were 30min late due to traffic and our uber driving getting lost, which we heard was common at the restaurant. They still served us without any issues and we couldn't...More

The standard of service there is so good that I have no doubt that they would cater for gluten free diets. Can I suggest that you contact them directly?
