They only have gluten-free salads, and they cannot guarantee there is no cross-contamination. But the waiters are very friendly. The place is wonderful to see, they have an incredible terrace where you can see the river!

Fun place for dinner--we were there on half-price night so an even better deal. Filet Mignon burger was top notch. Service was good despite it being a busy evening-we will be back.
