Everything was amazing at Joes! The food was so good that I wish we were staying here one more day so we could have another meal. The outside seating was great and the servers were friendly and efficient. Highly recommend it.

We have eaten at Joe's at least three times. When we come for vacation it is one of those places we just have to visit. It is always fresh, and meal creations are fabulous every time. Great food and great service!

I would phone the restaurant directly to arrange the gift. I have done this elsewhere and it works out just fine. I can't see that Joe's Bistro would be any different. Very nice gift!

Don't know as neither of us has a gluten problem so I would suggest phoning them directly to get your answer.
