Entertaining Allergies

General question to people who regularly entertain: when you have a guest who's got a particular food allergy or aversion, do you think its ok or bad form if you serve a dish that they might not be able to eat, as long as you serve other dishes that they can eat? (Like appetizers or side dishes). I have a running debate with a family member: is the fact that you've put something on the table that they can't have negate all the other things you have put out for them?
