My family and I stayed there this past May. We had good experiences at Wolfgang Puck's restaurant and Craftsteak. We went to Craftsteak our last night there. It is a little expensive, but in our opinion worth it. We enjoyed the Spring Tasting Menu. My daughter informed the waiter she was gluten free and he checked with the chef to confirm safe foods. To my daughter's astonishment he came back and told her the chef said she could choose anything on the menu and he would make sure it was gluten free. She also chose the tasting menu and she was thrilled to be able to try all of the different foods. It seems so often her only choice is a salad with chicken. I would highly recommend the tasting menu. It was fun to try all of the diffent foods and everything we tried was exceptional. The only thing she had to have different was dessert, but they brought her out a beautiful bowl of fresh fruit (blackberries, raspberries, etc.) all the vision of perfection with cream. Our desserts were good, but we had to admit we were jealous of hers. The presentation was beautiful. If you watch "Top Chef", this is one of the restaurants owned by the head judge Tom Colicchio.

She enjoyed her meal at Wolfgang Puck's so much she still brings up how much she liked it. She had fish of some sort, but I do not remember exactly what she ate there.

I would highly recommend both of these restaurants.

    • Thanks.  This is very helpful.  Our first post diagnosis grocery store trip took several hours, just trying to read labels to make sure everything is safe.   Our son loves bread and this going to be the hardest part. 
    • i would agree with most of your assessment but overall the popular chefs are very aware. Ed Kenny at Town did have  gluten-free options on the menu.  Mavro's will fix something special given advance notice but its expensive.  excellent but very expensive.  Alan Wong is very aware and will have his staff prepare something as well.  We did find many options at both Oahu  whole foods -- mostly  with tofu. the only thing  there is to be aware of cross contamination with things  next to it.  they make a great gluten-free southwestern tofo dish which is great but not if its sitting next to anything with gluten. Its not whole foods but people use the smae  spoons and tongs i found more at   down to earth in peal city than by  University ave  
    • Hi,  I'm in KOna but my kaiser doctor just retired  who was pretty good about it. I dont know of a specialist here  but most of hte kaiser docs wil test you if thats when you need to talk to them about. good luck  
    • Yes.  And wouldn't it have been nice if your doctor had tested you for Celiac disease before you went gluten free? Then you would know if your issues are Celiac or not.  That would help you know how careful you need to be, what other illnesses and problems to look for, whether you might be passing a genetic disease on to your children, if you should look for another cause of your symptoms, etc  
    • I would be very careful in giving this kind of advice, she is in an advanced stage. I was there and one additional symptom that I was getting was a strong urge to commit suicide so eating gluten for three months might not be the way to go for some people. If a gluten free diet stop the problems them gluten is the problem or a least part of it. I eliminated MSG from my diet because I notice that the common denominator for some products that affected my well being was MSG. I eliminated oats because I notice that I would get canker sores every time I ate it. Wheat is what affect my brain the most, irritability gets uncontrollable, my mental capacity greatly diminish, rash in my arms appear, can't sleep,etc. Barley makes my stomach groan, and constipated. Will try testing how Rye affect me some later time.
