    After being assured there were abundant menus choices for a celiac customer, we were quite disappointed to find that was not true at all. The waitress knew little about celiac limitations and the clarifications she got from the kitchen were vague enough to make us extremely dubious about their ability to actually cook to gluten free standard. So, again, my wife had to settle for a salad "dinner" to be safe. My halibut was well prepared and tasty. If the cooks knew what they were doing, it could have been prepared GF. It's not that difficult.

    There's a lot new at the Wayfarer -- a new chef and a supposed new renovation. I think the renovation only encompassed the carpeting as the booths still seem scratched and everything else looked the same. Also be careful as the menu posted online has not been updated so a number of things are no longer there -- like the fried oysters and the seafood stew. When we asked about that they sent the chef over who told us he was new and had just been there for three weeks. I've been to the Wayfarer a lot and it is still my favorite Cannon Beach restaurant. The new chef seems to have a penchant for edible flowers as they are now on top of everything. The portions seem smaller. The burata was good -- but definitely smaller than it used to be. The calamari was excellent. I had the pork and polenta and there was a ton of polenta but a smaller portion of pork which was quite dry. My husband had the clam bake and it didn't have it's normal amazing broth -- it looked rather oily, a smaller portion of crab legs and just didn't have that to die for broth that it used to have. I'll definitely go back to give the chef time to settle in -- but he can get rid of those flowers on everything -- they don't really add to it.

    Our waitstaff was excellent, attentive and patient. The pork dish was overcooked. Wine vintages listed were not available.

    Server was a nice guy, he get them the third star. The food wasn’t great seared tuna was so pale, I’m not sure it was tuna. Also, meals were served with Mexican rice. Very strange flavor to mix with seared tuna and salmon. Would find somewhere else to eat next time And as a follow up, I sent them my email as requested but no one reached out…
