We take food allergies very seriously. While we can never guarantee that our food is 100% free of allergens, there are several steps that we take to minimize the risk of cross-contamination and offer some alternative options including gluten free, nut free and dairy free options.
We take great care to process common allergenic ingredients such as nuts and soy separately to avoid cross contamination. Please specify with your server the nature and severity of your allergy.
