My family and I are going to The Lodge at Geneva for a wedding. The chef made himself available to me via phone and as we discussed the allergies he let me know that there were separate prep areas and equipment to handle such situations. They have in the past prepared food for numerous allergies and would be able to handle my situation. Hopefully the wedding goes as well as this has!!
Our family recently enjoyed a birthday celebration in a separate dining area at Shuhei Restaurant in Beachwood. They were very accommodating to our nut, milk and egg allergies. When making the reservation, our needs were clearly stated. Upon arrival, we spoke to the chef, manager and our waitress. They allowed us to bring in our own birthday cake and were gracious about all of our needs.

Our family recently had lunch at Buffalo Wild Wings in Avon Lake. Before arriving we checked out the online allergen information which was very detailed. At the restaurant the our waitress made sure to note on our order that we had a member of our party with an egg and tree nut allergy. She offered to show us another copy of the allergen list with the menu and assisted us with ordering. We were very pleased with our visit and found many things on the menu we were comfortable ordering.
