One of the best gluten free menus around -- in Charlottesville, VA

Reviewer: Lovetodinegf

We had an amazing meal at Burtons Grill a couple nights ago. We were down in Charlottesville visiting Monticello, UVA, and Montpelier and chose Burtons Grill for dinner, based on their very extensive gluten free menu (they have one for lunch and one for dinner).

Some of the items we ordered were the Spicy Calamari appetizer (the best we've ever had), a Beet Salad, Steak Frites (wonderful), Fish and Chips, and the Mediterranean Chicken Risotto (one of their signature dishes). All were gluten free, and all were fabulous!

We only wish there were more Burtons Grill's around! They are also very careful about preparing gluten free orders and serve them on special plates.

Lovely restaurant in The Plains, VA that offers gluten free

Reviewer: Lovetodinegf

This is a very lovely restaurant in the quaint town of The Plains, Virginia. Serving "authentic regional Italian cuisine," the ambiance really does make you feel like you are in the Italian countryside. The menu changes to take advantage of seasonal offerings and produce from local farms. Many of the meat and seafood items on the menu are -- or can be tailored to be -- gluten free (like by not dusting the veal scallopine in flour before sautéing it). They do stock gluten free pasta and can substitute this for most of their pasta choices. There are even some gluten free dessert options. They have a wonderful wine list with many Italian reds, our favorite. In addition to the Veal Saltimbocca, I enjoyed a delicious Antipasti platter with buffalo mozzarella. I would give this restaurant an even higher rating if they had a printed Gluten Free Menu so gluten free diners would know right off the bat what they can and cannot order, without having to ask a lot of questions or request substitutions.

Blue Ridge Grill

Brambleton, VA 20148

Gluten free dining in Brambleton Town Center, Ashburn, VA

Blue Ridge Grill has a decent amount of gluten free options, and fairly recently they actually began offering a printed Gluten Free Menu. It's a bit frustrating, because like many other restaurants that offer gluten free menus, they don't bother to stock gluten free buns for their larger burger selection. This is one of the easier things to do. They can be kept frozen until needed, too, so they don't spoil. Simply defrosting and toasting or steaming the bun enables it to be prepared quickly. But their burgers are only offered with "no bun."

Fortunately, however, they do have a fair number of other items on their gluten free menu, all of which are very good. You will find yourself with a choice of steaks, prime rib, baby back ribs, several fish entrees, shrimp, and a couple chicken options. There's a nice range of appetizers, too: buffalo wings and seared ahi tuna...along with many salads. Our waiter brought gluten free tortilla chips to the table instead of the usual bread. There are many choices of gluten free sides to accompany your main course, including the fries, which are fried in a dedicated fryer.

I had an outstanding fish prepared with coconut rice (they prepared it for me without the usual chicken stock, since they couldn't verify if it was gluten free -- and they knew to do this without even asking me...very impressive). It was topped with a delicious mango/pineapple salsa (it looked so good I started to dig in before remembering to take this photo!). Others at our table ordered steaks (gluten free), which were delicious.

Our waiter seemed quite knowledgable about gluten free, so we didn't even find it necessary to talk with the manager on this visit.

They have another location in Leesburg, VA, too.

Wonderful gluten free dinner at restaurant in Reston, VA

Our family had a wonderful dinner at Morton's Steakhouse in Reston, Virginia. They have locations all over the country. Their Gluten Free Menu is very extensive. There are appetizers, bar bites (available in the bar only), soup (to-die-for Lobster Bisque), salads, and plenty of steaks and seafood on the menu. Gluten free items ordered at our table included the Filet Mignon and the Mixed Grill (filet, grilled shrimp, bacon wrapped scallops -- delicious). You don't feel at all limited ordering from this gluten free menu. There are also plenty of sides to choose from, but note that they are all a la carte. There were also a fair number of gluten free desserts to choose from, including a wonderful, rich chocolate mousse.

Jamba Juice

Gluten free options at juice bar in Huntington Beach, CA

Reviewer: Lovetodinegf
Reviewed on Jun 17, 2013

Much or all of what Jamba Juice offers seems to be gluten free, but the person taking our order didn't seem particularly knowledgeable about gluten. However, he did offer to show us the ingredient list for the beverage we wanted to order, the Orange Dream Machine, which is a heavenly blend of orange sherbet, frozen yogurt, and orange juice. It appeared to be gluten free, and we ordered it without a "boost" (vitamins, protein, etc.) since we didn't know definitively if those were gluten free. They'd be smart to post a "GF" notation next to the gluten free items on their menu -- or include this information on their website.
