Great service today. After asking whether a dish was gluten free I was served gf bread (normal bread for the rest of the table) without asking and the waitress made a point of stating that my dish was gluten free when she served it. Two people had decided to share an entree and the waitress asked the kitchen to serve it on separate plates so the two, who where not sitting together, wouldn't have to reach across the table. Water regularly topped up and staff very attentive. And importantly, the food was lovely!
