    I didn't even order yet and I would give this place a zero if I could. I came here based on the reviews of how accommodating they are but I asked the server if he could help me with gluten free options and he said we don't have anything gluten free and when i further asked if they would be willing to change anything on the menu to make it Gf he just said "yea" and walked away! So now I am sitting here trying to find ANYTHING i can eat and very annoyed.

    OUTSTANDING... We had Rohit as our waiter. He was awesome and explained everything that was gluten free. I had a 1/2 roasted chicken with mashed potatoes, green beans and peanut butter pie for desert. It was so good we went back the next night and are going for brunch tomorrow. Prices are reasonable and service was great. It is a very busy place so make a reservation if you can.

    I found this while visiting the White House. The waitress was very accommodating and assured that the chef would be willing/able to alter the menu to be gluten free since there wasn't a separate gluten free menu as long as it is not anything fried (for obvious reasons.) I had the mussels with rice (instead of pasta) it was super tasty and a very big plate! They also have gluten free desserts. I didn't have a reaction after eating here, however I am just gluten intolerant not celiac & do not have a reaction as easily.

    Explained I have a gluten allergy. Staff was very nice but not knowledgable. Ordered a salad with no dressing and olive oil on the side. Salad came with premade salad dressing. After assuring me it was made with a white vinegar that would not cause a reaction, I ate it. It was delicious. But twenty minutes into the meal I got a reaction. Should have followed my intuition and sent it back.

    I found this as a traveler to DC on business and was downtown after 8:00 p.m. Many of the other GF restaurants that appeared on Find Me Gluten Free were closed, but this one stayed open until 2:00 a.m. I asked for a GF menu, but was told that my waitress would take care of me. The waitress didn't have a specific gluten free menu, but she was versed enough to be able to tell me which items on their regular menu were gluten free. I ordered the Wild Salmon. It was delivered to me separately so as to avoid contamination. The meal was GREAT as was the price (very reasonable for being a quarter mile or less from the Whitehouse!! Just missed out on enjoying their sourdough bread served with the meal. I highly recommend this place to other travelers or locals.

    I will gladly eat here again tomorrow! We sat at the bar, discussed our GFCF requirements with the bartender and were pleasantly surprised with his knowledge of the menu items, their ingredients and his suggestions. We both had the BLT salad minus the Bread, with oil and vinegar as the standard dressing contains gluten. We felt safe and enjoyed every bite...all on a Sunday morning in the midst of brunch, packed with runners after a 10k race! Ate there again this morning, arrived 5 minutes before breakfast ended but they squeezed us in. I ordered The American - apple juice, 2 poached eggs, bacon, no toast and asked about the hash browns... They brought me a safe GFCF breakfast which included potatoes hot off the oiled grill. I love this place!!

    Old Ebbitt was established in 1856, is near the White House and wonderful milieu and amazing fresh & local seafood & ingredients aiming for tradition but not afraid to look forward. Though no separate GF menu, the wait & kitchen staff are well-informed and will work with you to adjust the menu accordingly. I ate here twice in 3 days.
