No, you cannot eat at a restaurant by just avoiding bread and noodles. Wheat flour is used quite commonly as a thickener and as a coating for all kinds of cooking. You really do need to ask for a gluten free menu. Most higher end restaurants can accomodate you now.
A big surprise for me was that soy sauce (and a lot of umami flavorings) have wheat in them. You can get the same from tamari, but most asian restaurants will not have this. I haven't eaten chinese food out in a long time.
