Wow and awesome are my first thoughts to describe the food, the service and their knowledge of gluten free. Ordered a gluten free taco in a bowl. Gabrielle was a very attentive server at the end of a long day but gave us 110%. Will definitely stop here again. (Wish I lived closer!!)
Excellent Italian food and they understood GF and cross contamination! They had GF Ravioli, GF spaghetti and GF Penne. Their meatballs are NOT GF. They can make almost any dish GF. They also have GF pizza - I'm pretty sure on an Udi's crust. Several GF dessert options. Staff were very friendly and accommodating!
Love this restaurant! I have celiac disease and it's always been hard for me to find a grey restaurant with all the foods that I love. this restaurant, the food was delicious, and the staff were very helpful and kind. they ensured me there would be no cross contamination, and I did not get sick after! every time I visit NYC I always eat here. I've previously had, grilled cheese, chicken fingers, pancakes, French toast and fries (where you can rarely find with restaurants with a dedicated fryer), all delicious and never have I gotten sick! definitely recommend this restaurant for celiacs !!
Big enough menu. I got cod with a mushroom sauce on top of mashed potato with ginger & spring onion. Although slightly pricy, I enjoyed it. Waitress was knowledgeable and overall I felt comfortable there.
They have an allergy button that alerts the staff who then changes gloves and utensils to prepare your burger (so let them know you need GF), all the fries and shakes are GF. Highly recommend a double double protein and animal style.
Wow! If you are traveling in or near Santa Barbara, you must stop here! We stopped to pick up sandwiches and ended up splitting the ham & swiss on brioche, and the Waldorf chicken salad on honey nut bread. They were both delicious and the bread held up nicely! And after seeing their beautiful cakes, we ended up taking a few slices for the road! (carrot spice, bananas foster, cookies and cream cheesecake, and a Lemon meringue tart-- yum yum!). The only negative is a $2 up- charge to toast your sandwich.
As can be expected with most high end restaurants, Sierra Mar's wait staff and kitchen are well versed and capable of catering to a gluten free diet. Virtually everything on the $125 four course tasting menu, which changes seasonally, can be prepared gluten free. However, the gluten free bread that is served leaves much to be desired (warmed Schar brand) especially given the price. Nevertheless, if you want fine dining with a nice view, this is perhaps the best (and safest) option for celiacs in Big Sur.
Chef/owner Jean Hubert takes great pride in catering to celiacs - he explained the precautions he takes (including cleaning all utensils and cooking surfaces) which allowed us to relax and enjoy our dinner. The French onion soup is a must have, but the showstopper was at the end of our meal: gluten free souffle! If you give the chef 24-hours notice, he will be able to gather the necessary ingredients to make it happen.
