    They do not have a dedicated fryer. They fry the chimichanga in the fryer. Chips are also fried in same fryer. Bummer. However they are good to help with menu.

    The staff was very nice and knowledgeable, but the food was just okay. My wife is super-sensitive to gluten and had no problems.

    Great selection of GF options, knowledgable staff, dedicated fryer, terrific service, great views. They totally understand CC issues. Monday's are 20% off GF orders. Loved this place.

    I did my wedding reception here and everything was wonderful. Not only did they put together a great buffet style reception but they also had a gluten free option for me. The staff was friendly and helpful during the reception.

    Food is tasty. However, it is NOT safe for a celiac.

    They have a GF and a Paleo menu. I enjoyed my dinner though on the bland side. I got a little sick on my stomach. I called to ask about how the chips were cooked after i realized i never asked if they were cooked in the same oil as breaded items specifically (I did ask my waitresses if the chips were GF and was assured they were) and the girl was clueless when I called. I asked her to ask the chef, she said some times it gets contaminated from changing pans, not what you want to hear! I am hesitant to try it again, but not against it. I will be very detail oriented with my questions/ordering...as I should have been the first time. The salsa is great!

    They also have a Paleo menu. Had the chicken fajitas off Paleo menu, needs seasoning and more meat options. Steak is marinated in soy and not an option. Kinda bummed as this is a good restaurant!

    One of my favorites!! They have recently updated their gf menu and added even more choices. So yummy, and they know their stuff. Kitchen is very knowledgeable and careful with their cooking methods.

    GF food is delicious! I am giving 3 stars because they DO NOT have a dedicated fryer for their homemade tortillas.

    There are limited options from the Mexican menu. I ended up having ribs. Waitress was not very informed about Celiac or gluten and could only repeat what was on the menu. My meal was then delivered with the glutinous side and had to be sent back. While they do have gluten free options I could not in good faith say they are gluten friendly.

    I've always loved Salsa Brava! I remember them adding a gluten free menu years ago, back before I really knew what it meant. Now that I have celiac, I really appreciate having a restaurant in town that has been offering gluten free options for awhile. The hostess automatically pointed out the gluten free options when she seated us (without knowing my need for it), and when I asked the server about the chips, she immediately knew they were fried in the same oil as other things. She actually said she has celiac herself, and said she isn't bothered by the chips, but knows some people are more sensitive, so I was glad she pointed that out. I decided not to risk it this time (and I wish they'd get a dedicated fryer because I LOVE their salsas and guacamole). Anyway, she recommended the chicken stuffed poblano, and it was really good! I definitely recommend Salsa Brava, as they seem to be one of the more knowledgable places...plus the food and service are great!

    Food was excellent!! Better than that was the service!!! My wife has Celiac and because of cross contamination she was unable to enjoy the chips and their trio of guacamole, mango habanero salsa, and queso. But our waiter decided to save the day by taking tortilla shells and putting them on the grill!! So in the end she was able to enjoy the trio!!! It's the little things like this that matter!!!! It's too bad there isn't one of these Mexican restaurants back in St. Louis!!

    We weren't impressed. The menu wasn't extensive by any means and the portions were small, yet pricey.

    I wasn't impressed in the least. The tortilla soup was orange, and I'm talking orange like preservative filled soup ya buy at the store. I dropped a bit on my shirt and it stained it. And it didn't taste any better than that which I can buy premade in the store. It was however, more expensive. Mexican food is cheap to prepare so an expensive mexican restaurant, especially one with what appears to be store bought soup, is ridiculous. But, for those who are all about following the crowd, by all means, hit up Salsa Brava. I prefer to spend my money on food that tastes original.

    Staff is very friendly, and it is safe food to eat...however, the food is extremely bland. I mean, like, the kind of bland you have to work at to achieve. Please don't come here expecting good food. Safe food for your allergy and a really friendly staff, yes, but tasty food, no.

    I was disappointed with my experience. I ordered the fish tacos from the gluten free menu and it arrived on flour tortillas. I hag to send back wait 20 minutes for new tacos and then was charged twice for the tacos. Had to get the check fixed but waitress not very amicable.

    establishment has a gluten free menu with a gluten free 20% off discount day, and that would be Wednesday, if you're wondering. service was great! the chips and salsa were really delicious, they were really fresh and the salsa had a lovely lime flavor to it. the gluten free menu had a few items on it, so I didn't feel left out at all.

    WOW! Salsa Brava offers quite an extensive gluten-free menu! I've tried several items, and each time I've been so impressed with the variety on the menu and fresh flavors of the dishes. My favorite items are the Tableside Guacamole, Carne Picada Enchiladas & Blackened Sea Bass Tacos. They also offer a clean-cooked paleo menu. You can tell that Salsa Brava is really focused on catering to guests with special dietary considerations, and the staff members seem very knowledgeable, too.
