Tim at the front desk was very gracious and helpful!!. He knew we needed GF menus because we had mentioned in our online reservation that I have celiac. I also mentioned to the server " I have Celiac" (yes, I say this politely to everyone who will be handling my food because I do not like to get glutened and get sick) .... and she seemed to understand. I felt relaxed--oh good, I can dine safely Of course, the irony of eating at WHEATfields is not lost on me. :)
She took our order, brought our drinks (curiously, one was more of a "generous pour" than the other and we had the same thing ) and we were happy.
Then, we were given a basket of bread.
hmm. I'm pretty sure I have been a bit of a pest and made it clear I have celiac and I do not like to keep bringing it up, but...hello? I can't have bread!! I flagged him down asked if he could take it away. And asked nicely "Do you have any GF bread by any chance"? He says "Oh you wanted Gluten Free bread?" Er, yes please? It came about 10 minutes later (they heat it up) and I was delighted to see it was an Against the Grain baguette I like so much.
Dinner was VERY good! I had the lemon spinach risotto with shrimp. Hubs had a Caesar salad (he picked the croutons off) he is also GF, but not a celiac or NCGI and he did not specify he did not eat those, so it was no one's fault and not a big deal.
However, I was offered a "flourless chocolate cake" for dessert. After asking a few questions, I learn....... it's not baked in a certified GF facility. So, actually, no, this dessert is NOT GF. Note to Wheatfields: You should make this clear to your patrons. Cross contamination is a very real problem for celiacs. I know. I have become quite ill from eating a flourless chocolate cake at another restaurant, only to learn it came from SYSCO.If you can't "source it" you cannot claim it is GF.
The made- on- the- premises creme brulee , however, was DELICIOUS!!
Kudos to the chef and baker.
Go there and enjoy the GF menu options, fellow celiacs... but ask questions first.
Ask them where the GF pizza dough is made, for example..... Just sayin.
Extra good thing: No glutening symptoms 2 days later.
One bad thing--this place is as cold as a meat locker....BRRRR... turn up the heat, guys.
Thank you, Wheatfield's for offering so many good GF options!.
