    My issue was that didn’t have any gluten free options. My friend was recently diagnosed with celiacs and she cannot have gluten. Two waiters told us there wasn’t anything on that menus that was gluten free…except maybe a caprese salad. I took her there for her birthday celebration and wanted to be able to order more then a stupid salad. The waiter said they could have the chef make the omelette with olive oil instead of canola. So we did that. But still just in shock that the chef doesn’t have a GF entree option. It’s 2022! Get with the program geez.

    being seated next to an event wasn't the best. Before taking us to our seat they should've told us that we would be seating in an area next to the event.
