I thought I saw someone on this forum mention that they had posted a review about a restaurant where they got sick. If there is a site where celiacs can post whether or not they got sick from eating supposedly gluten-free food at a restaurant, that would be very helpful! And, of course, if people can post when they DON'T get sick, that's very helpful too. Does anyone know if there's a site like that somewhere?
Is There A Gluten Free Yelp?
Posted 25 August 2013 - 08:20 AM
It was me that posted!
I've used Yelp, but I am not aware of a dedicated Yelp site for gluten-free. I've posted just one review about a local Chinese restaurant who goes out of their way to make gluten-free dishes for our family.
I did use the "Find Me Gluten Free" website to post a review just this week concerning Red Robin.
I'm the person who did not have abdominal issues prior to my blood test. Now, months later after being on a strict gluten-free diet, abdominal symptoms hit me hard (besides body aches, headaches, fatigue) after my recent restaurant glutening.
When it's very nice restaurant and the chef and manager come out to talk to me, I feel pretty confident that my food will be gluten-free and chances for cross contamination will be low. The same for burger joints (that sell only fries and burgers) where I can WATCH them change their gloves and make my burger!

I think Find Me Gluten Free is your best resource for dining out, rather than yelp,
I post regularly on FMGF as do many others.

Thanks for the responses! I'll go look at "find me gluten free" before we try eating out again. It helps to know when people have already tried a place and NOT gotten sick so you can be pretty confident it's safe!
