Good Gluten Free Experience at Now Larimar resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

Learn this phrase before you go: "I am allergic to wheat" = "Tengo alergia al trigo." The resort has nine different restaurants and all (except the French restaurant, I think) have menus with a gluten-free logo on the dishes that are gluten-free. The staff doesn't speak much English, so most of them didn't understand when I told them I need a gluten-free meal. As long as I ordered a menu item marked gluten-free, I was fine. I would avoid the teppanyaki tables at the Spice restaurant (which require reservations), as you will get some dried up chicken and plain rice with no sauce. I left there hungry. Our favorite restaurant was Tamarindo, the Mexican restaurant, which serves endless margaritas, so be careful! The Capers restaurant (Italian) was good. The Castaways grill for lunch was good (outdoor grilled chicken, pork and hamburgers. At the Windows buffet, I asked one of the waiters about gluten-free foods and he went back and made me some fresh gluten free grilled chicken. There was a small area at the buffet labeled gluten-free, but it was only one small shelf of corn bread (yummy) and crackers. The shelf underneath it had glutinous items, and it wasn't 100% clear that these weren't also gluten-free, so be careful! I did not get sick the whole week we were there!

Concerned about gluten cross-contamination. My daughter's symptoms that evening and the next day indicated that she was exposed to gluten. Service was just OK. Food was OK, not great. My family will not return.

Gluten Free heaven a restaurant in Rochester, Minnesota

I've been trying to eat out Gluten Free comfortably for over 3 yrs. now in Minnesota, and Twigs Bar and Grill in Rochester is by far the best. One of the owners is a diagnosed Celiac and knows all about cross-contamination issues. They have a separate Gluten Free menu AND a separate area in the kitchen for GF cooking only. The staff always seems very aware and knowledgable when taking Gluten Free orders. I almost cried when I looked at the Gluten Free menu (all especially for me) appetizers, salads & dressings, dinners, sandwiches, FRENCH FRIES, desserts and even Gluten Free beer. Please go to their website and just try not to drool. I think they get their Gluten Free breads/buns from a local bakery & they're special ( better than all those GF breads I've been trying). We've been there several times now sampling many items and my wife (not GF) and I both felt everything was properly prepared and delicious. Great ambiance also. And all thanks to my Mayo Clinic Celiac doctor, when told we were looking for a place I could safely eat, who just smiled and said "Try Twigs".

Fabulous BYO with a gluten free menu in Washington Square West area of Philadelphia. I am not from Phillie, but I visit there frequently. EVERY time I do I make a point to go to Giorgio's with my son, a Phillie resident. They have fabulous food, really tasty gluten free bread, and great desserts too! A must visit if you are GF and in Phillie!
