I know that this location has gotten a bit of a reputation for not being the most consistent, but I took my chances for a family member's birthday lunch as it was the desired location of said birthday boy.
Warning: they have a dirty kitchen.
I was very clear in the need for Gluten Free meal, stated it was a health concern, etc. A special waitress came over and took my order, and she was very confident in that my request of "plain broccoli and baked salmon" was something that the kitchen could "absolutely" prepare. This gave me confidence.
I was 4 bites into said broccoli when I discovered pieces of wheat pasta on the plate, hidden in the pile of broccoli -- not full pieces, but 4-5 two inch pieces of pasta that had clearly fallen off of dirty utensils in the kitchen.
The manager apologized and then told me how careful they are; that broccoli is steamed away from the pasta. I told him that the precaution makes no difference if you use pasta crusted tongs to plate the dish.
Even without the health concern (and I am sensitive, so the tummy is still not right), I found it disgusting that pieces of old food for another person's meal landed in mine.
