I would never post a review unless I had actually eaten at the restaurant. I will say that when this first was posted I looked at their reviews on Trip Advisor and very few were flattering. This was before the "scandal" broke and none of them were from celiacs. Mostly along the lines of "used to love this place but it's gone way downhill" and "don't waste your money". So they can't 100% blame their shoddy reviews on the gluten free community!

I noted the same, lynnelise. Nearly every business has to go into damage control mode at some point over something, and it is entirely proper that they defend whatever reputation they have, but you can't blame the public for talking about something so brainless and harmful and wanting to know (and everyone else to know) where that idiot worked.

I didn't notice this until today. It's horrible :( Hopefully all the publicity will make people think twice about gambling with our health.

27, F, from the beautiful area of Twente in the Netherlands. English is not my first language, so I apologize for any errors.

Symptoms started in 2007, but no link to celiac disease was found until 2009. I learned of celiac disease through the internet, my doctor never recognized it. She put me on a diet before tests were done, so the initial tests failed. My GI advised me to do a gluten provocation, which had to be stopped too soon to take a reliable biopsy. Based on symptoms such as vitamin deficiencies, GI problems and osteopenia my diagnosis now is: glutenintolerant, suspected celiac disease. This diagnosis was in march 2010, and I've been so much better ever since.

Wow, that is scary. I pretty much just go to Jason's Deli now because they handed me a copy to keep of their Gluten free menu, and they ask me every time if it is an allergy, and then they write "Gluten allergy" on the order sheet so that the cooks will change their gloves and be careful of cross contamination. I am seriously afraid of going into a restaurant that has the attitude of this ignorant chef.
