This place is great! The chef/owner was extremely accommodating. We liked it so much and felt so safe that we went twice. The Reuben was delicious. The omelette was amazing. This is a must do for celiac who are in the area.
They have a very extensive GF menu. Pasta was delicious! Generous portion too. The pizza crust was very thin and undercooked, but it was still very tasty and devoured by my 6 year old. No one has gotten sick, so we will be back!
Tavolino has the most extensive gluten free menu I've seen, it is actually multiple pages! We had a very attentive server who took my need for gluten free food very seriously. She said that the restaurant takes gluten free so seriously that they had recently fired someone for failing to enter an order as gluten free. Which is unfortunate, but also very reassuring. The waitress even labelled my husband's take-out container as "gluten filled."
I had the veal saltimbocca which was very yummy and completely satisfied my Italian food craving. We also had the meatball appetizer and they were also delicious. We even tried the Cream of Pickle soup. The waitress stated that all of their soups are GF.
There was also an insert in the menu that advertised a four course GF dinner which they offer Sundays through Thursdays. I believe the price was $24.95. It looked delicious and like a really good deal, but I don't remember the specifics so please call ahead before you get your heart set on it!
Sweet Frog has an extensive allergy list of all of their flavors and they are clearly listed on sign over the machine. The only reason they did not get 5 stars is the open topping bins which can lead to contamination and while the staff showed me how to determine the yogurt they stopped their service there and did not offer any non contaminated toppings.
Went here for the first time last night. An hour wait but it was definitely worth it. Staff was attentive. Waitress extremely friendly and accommodating. They can make almost anything gluten free. Food was delicious,portions huge. Too full for dessert but got it to go because they had a gluten free brownie sundae. Definitely adding to my list of favorites
Pretty dang good! Everything was delicious, and the Pakora is GF, so eat away. The special dipping sauces are really yummy, and everything is well-flavored. If you want spicy, ask for hot or extra-hot. Medium-hot is not enough.
Had the 2 Ginger Sandwich and was not impressed. The chicken was very dry as was the bacon and bread. They offered me a free drink card but I don't drink, would rather have had them waive the fee for GF bread. Not sure I will be going here again.
SHORT STORY: This restaurant is out of the question for those with Celiac, even though their website says they can cater to gluten-free diets. There is absolutely no way to avoid cross-contamination.
LONG STORY: After being seated at our table last night, I asked the waitress about their preparation for gluten-free diets, and she confidently affirmed that preparing gluten-free was no problem, and that the cooks will clean the grill upon request. We were then instructed to pick up our bowls at the beginning of the food bars and fill them with the meat, veggies and sauces we wanted. Here was the first issue: the noodles were nested between the meat and the veggies, and pieces of noodle had dropped into some of the veggie trays right adjacent to the noodles. Okay, so obviously I skip those veggies. But, going forward, as people pile their bowls up with their selections of veggies, the serving tongs are naturally contaminated as they are plunged into the noodles in their bowls to press everything down. So I carefully select the veggies, assuming the ones further down the line may be the safest. At this point we reach the sauce bar, where there is obvious cross-contamination. Someone who appeared to be the manager was nearby, so I inquired further about the sauces and the preparation, explaining that I was extremely sensitive to gluten since I have Celiac. He reassured me that they have had no problem with handling allergies in their ten months of operation, and then offered to get me two gluten-free sauces from the back. So I move forward to the grill where my concoction of meat and veggies is to be cooked, and am immediately horrified. There is one large round-shaped grill where everyone's meal is being cooked, noodles and all. I tell them I need gluten-free, and they proceed to “clean” the grill, pouring hot water on it, using a system to scrape off the accumulated debris, and then re-greasing it. For someone with Celiac, this is a far cry from being “clean.” At this point, because they were so confident of being able to prepare gluten-free food, I decided to still eat my food. Needless to say, I got very sick.
My sister found this place and we loved it. This is a small, intimate jazz supper club venue. We went late night after a theater show and I had gluten free ribs and great collard greens. Gf options listed on menu. A bit loud because it is so small (and no talking during sets) but a really fun true New York experience, especially if you like jazz.
