servers don't really know the answer to that(the cooks are supposed to have that in its own area, the servers don't make the food), there are a few places that train their servers on their menu, most don't want to wast the time training someone on what does and does not have ingrediantes when their turnover is 25% +

MFW I was eating lunch at a Zen temple and warned them ahead of time of my severe nut allergy but was still served food literally covered in nuts, then when I asked for water saw two big-ass cashews literally resting in the bottom of the kettle filled with water.

I'm a celiac ( ******* google it) People who have to ask the waiter do not have a real allergy.

im a Celiac. and ive pretty much remembered every food in most restaurants that dont contain gluten. and its becomes easy when instead of fries ask for mashed potatoes or rice. its not on the menu but they usually have it in stock and would rather cook it than **** up your insides

i have worked in food service for years... gluten allergies are a joke to us... it has actually been proven that unless you have cialiacs disease you do not have an allergy to gluten, a lot of people use the word "allergy" because they just do not like a food... however they do not realize that telling us an allergy doesnt mean just skipping your ******* bun, it means cleaning everything involved with your food and changing gloves and washing hands, wiping down everything and... while this seems like it should be done often, and it is it means in the middle of a 100 person rush we are making your food special... and as a side note... semen is not a thing people are allergic to... neither is spit

It's the ******* balls when you're a server at an Italian restaurant. This is about how the conversation would go for me and customers.
Customer: "Hi yes, what pastas do you offer gluten free?"
Me: "Spaghetti ma'am"
Customer: "You sure you don't have anything else?"
Me: "I'm sure. But we can substitute the gluten-free spaghetti into what ever dish you want."
Customer: "Why don't you have a gluten-free option for every dish?"
Me: "Because that would cost the restaurant too much money ma'am."
Customer: "Is there anything else that is gluten free?"
Me: "Ma'am, you're at Pasta Cafe, EVERYTHING has gluten in it."
*after another 5 to 10 minutes of going over every item having gluten in it, and going over her order*
Me: "Ok, so I have your order written down and I'll place it shortly. Just to let you know, we have to cook the dish fresh because the cooks don't prepare gluten free pasta prior to opening."
*15 to 20 minutes later*
And that's why I'm glad I'm no longer a server at the restaurant.

I am allergic to wheat. I'm not gluten sensitive, intolerant, nor do I have celiac disease. I am literally allergic to the plant. I can eat pasta and bread, I am just itchy. That and celiac are real diagnosable diseases. am a server, and luckily we have a ton of gluten free options because I am in LA. Not to mention, vegan, vegetarian, dairy free, nut free and all that junk. I pride myself on knowing what's in the food so I can be confident in helping someone pick out a dish that they are comfortable with. That being said, if you are going to the be the prick who makes me go through literally every menu item with you, then **** off.

"gluten allergy", you mean ******************************* syndrome. People who actually have celiac disease aren't douchebags because they know gluten can **** them up faster than finely minced razor blades in their bowl of cream of rice.

Celiac isn't the only reason that people might not eat stuff with gluten. I was put on a gluten free diet by my doctor at one point because of stomach pains. It ended up being something else, though.
People on this site are pretty quick to make assumptions and be the douchebags they say they hate.

Well... I mean, knowing the dishes you are serving and being a dietitian is not the same thing... I guess...

I don't know about other places, but I worked at a reasonably (not michelin quality but still) high-quality restaurants and whenever the chefs would make a new menu they would provide allergen informatie to all serving staff to study.

That is simply one of the services customers rightfully expect when paying high prices for food.

However, I think that even in cheap restaurants the chef should be knowledgeable about allergens and the serving staff should consult him when necessary. This is not only to protect the customer, but also the restaurant and it's reputation.

Having said that, this content could be made by an American and given the pay and job quality standards for foodservice employees over there I can fully imagine them not giving a **** about anything at work.

American servers expect tips and they can't even do the basic task of talking with the chef to ensure the food is safe for one of their customers?

This is why I didn't tip through my entire time in America.

I just got off work at a browns social house, women comes in with bf seen them before, they tell the waitress they want a two of our blacken chicken salads. we get the bill make the food send it out when it's done, the girls gets sent back oh she's allergic to ginger that we put on top of the salad as part of the plating. then bitches when we take another five mins to cook a new breast, because the other one had touched ginger. sorry would rather not have you have a reaction because I was careless.
