food and service are amazing! a little pricey but worth ever penny. love that I got my own warm bread.
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.
Wow! This was some of the best food I've had in ages! The gf bread was super tasty and the French Onion soup is all I've talked about the past week! They serve all the gf food with little French flags to indicate they have been prepared gf. I loved dining here! Can't wait to return!
Amazing experience. They really understand gluten free. Chef started the restaurant with the owners years ago and immediately incorporated gluten free cooking. Chef is highly in tune with the need for separate cooking and preventing cross contamination. We had wonderful entrees and dessert (including crepe suzette).
Most of their food is GF My meal was very good !!! The servers were thoroughly knowledgable / friendly I even had my own warm GF bread basket There is a cute, cozy, outdoor setting with heaters /fire pit (a nice touch are the little cozy blankets on the back of the chairs just incase) Enjoyed the atmosphere of flowers --water fountain and hummingbirds as well
Excellent food and service. A little pricy, but so is the rest of this area. I would return if I could. The best part of my day :-)
I am sad to say that on our 2nd visit (yesterday), I got glutened. Today has been quite a challenge. I've downgraded my review from 5 stars to 4. 1st visit: I am adding in my 2-cents worth. This restaurant is wonderful! A bit pricey, but worth every penny. Excellent food, lots of choices, and completely celiac-friendly.
what a wonderful experience! phenomenal customer service, knowledgeable owner (or manager) dedicated kitchen area, GF bread basket!! many GF options, delicious food, after ordering they told me that my food comes with a French flag on it and if it doesn't to return it and they'll cook another order. super impressive! Had french onion soup, steak w fries.
Exceptional food, chef is extremely well educated and went to extra lengths to explain the protocols he had adopted. Every star is well earned - a real find for celiacs - dessert was outstanding and tasty. We came back for lunch before leaving Carmel!
Great food, so many options! Service is wonderful.
Service was good, dinner was delicious, and the crêpes were to die for. Enthusiastically recommended!
So great!! I had the penne papa gluten free:) they had a lovely gluten free bread basket yippee. ... that never happens
They get it. Got to eat a whole meal. Bread, salad, entree and declined on the dessert. Very good food and awesome educated staff. I will be going back.
Outstanding and very attentive to gluten and dairy issues. Try the GF Crepe Suzette!
First time I've ever had GF French onion soup!!! 98% on the menu can be GF
Great food and almost all of the menu is or can be gluten-free. Staff is attentive and helpful. Gluten-free food is clearly labeled so no confusion. The gluten-free bread is excellent. This is our new favorite place!
Excellent experience!! Stumbled upon this place and ended up coming back! I have severe food allergies to gluten, dairy, soy and nuts and was able to eat like a king. I had the crab and spinach pasta dish one night and the burger and fries another day including the sorbet which was absolutely amazing. I even got to have a bread basket. This place is must- everyone was so kind and accommodating. Will definitely be back next time I'm in town!
Food was delicious. Almost everything on the menu can be gluten free.
This restaurant offered almost it's entire menu with the Gluten Free option. Not just a few options. Pastas, great gf pizza, amazing gf desserts. But be sure to make reservations or get there before 6 or the wait will be an hour long.
Awesome GF pizza crust. Went to great lengths to avoid cross contamination. Great service. This is my new favorite resturant in Carmel.
Great gluten free options. Meal was delicious.
They get GF concerns. I visited this place on a road trip to SF. My wife and I are both Celiac. After reading other reviews I called ahead to make sure they were GF (I am very anal about GF) and the owner answered all my questions. When I told him on the phone I was 10 minutes away, he actually met me at the curbside and saved me a parking space. Who does that today? From the servers to the bussers to the chefs, this place gets GF. The owner knows about cross contact, potential gluten in sauces, etc. He graciously told me to "relax" that they understand our concerns and will do everything to ensure a GF meal. Music to my ears! Great food! Fresh/organic salads, GF bread, GF Pizza, fresh fish, GF pasta... just go here!
GF bread on the table for no extra charge! This is my absolute favorite restaurant in Monterey County. If you are celiac or gluten-free, this is the place to go for lunch or dinner in Carmel. The staff are all fully informed about gluten cross-contamination and this is one place that never seems to get me sick. Owners Mary and Chef Jean have gone above and beyond to provide wonderful gluten-free breads and pizza crust from Wild Coast Foods, and they also offer gluten-free pastas. Most menu items can be ordered gluten free, and this is noted on the menus. The desert menu has many gluten-free items, including gf crepes and flourless chocolate cake. The seafood special is often locally caught and always fresh and delicious. The filet mignon is superb. The pasta dishes and pizza are great and very inexpensive (you can order them off the lunch menu even at dinnertime). You really can't go wrong here. My daughter, who is 7 and also gluten-free, loves to eat here, and even asked to come here for her birthday dinner. They really went above and beyond to make it a special birthday for her. It was so sweet! This is a great place for families with kids, couples, whatever.
Gf on menu and great service.
Great GF bread and buns! Had my first burger and fries in months and went back the next day for a nice evening meal of pan-roasted chicken. A wonderful find.
Wonderful restaurant! Food was delicious, was a taste of France but gluten free heaven! Highly recommend and we will definitely be back.
Very friendly & helpful staff. Almost everything on the menu can be made gf, including most of the dessert menu! Try the chicken breast with artichokes; best chicken I've ever had!
