    Amazing! Would recommend to anyone. I got the fried chicken mean and my husband got the Parmesan chicken and we both loved it. For dessert he got the raspberry s'more parfait and I stole several bites because it was so good. The owner brought our food out and his partner explained to us that there are only two items with gluten in the restaurant which is gluten pasta and bread bun. Everything else is gluten free and there is no wheat flour in the building. We may have to come back before we leave.

    The food tasted great, and our waiter was nice. However, we feel this is a good restaurant for someone who is gluten free out of choice (paleo, etc.) rather than necessity. My wife is celiac and I have a gluten allergy, and we both had profound, day-ruining reactions within an hour of eating there on Valentine's Day. We were able to rule out anything we'd eaten at home beforehand. The website says "Everything gluten free." The reality is that we were handed separate gluten-free menus with more limited offerings. That was a major red flag, and we asked lots of questions about the kitchen and food prep to make sure we could still eat there. We were assured everything would be fine, and yet it wasn't. We feel the least Addiction Bistro should do is put a cross-contamination warning on its menu, much the way Hugo's does.

    Just had a spectacular meal here and EVERYTHING is Gluten-free. The Fried Chicken was moist, crispy, and flavorful. The Gnocchi was perfect with the most wonderful Bolognese Sauce I've ever had. My friend had the Pork Belly and I sneaked a bite...it was moist, fatty, bursting with flavor...a delicious slice of heaven. Then it was off to the desserts...all home made and, as with everything here, all gluten-free. The Creme Brulee ice cream was truly special and the S'more Pie was off the charts good.My only disappointment was that it was Friday night and they were barely half full. I always thought LA supported local independents but this is clearly not the case. This place should be packed every night by the general public and we GF-ers should be filling this place to the brim all day. Hopefully, tonight was an anomaly...it would be tragic for LA to lose a gem such as The Addiction Bistro.

    They can make anything on their menu Gluten Free. I had great fried chicken, creamed corn, and mashed potatoes. A definite win for both the GF and non GF individuals in our party.

    My celiac son truly enjoyed the fried chicken on our first visit so we returned one week later on a rainy Saturday at 6. By 6:30 there was a line at the door and several parties were dining outside on the covered, heated patio in the rain. Delicious, fresh and gluten free. The perfect combo.

    Love this place. Definitely my favorite gluten free restaurant. Everything on the menu is gluten free. The gnocchi is amazing. Love the fried chicken, Mac n cheese. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Just be sure to save room for dessert! I always order food to take home with me. You have to try everything on the menu!

    I come here every time I go to a Largo show & it never disappoints. Everything on the menu can be done gluten-free! I always seem to go back to the prime rib chili, though. So delicious. And everyone who works there is great. Can't say enough good things about this place.

    I think this is the only restaurant in LA where you can get anything on the menu made GF. That, plus the fact the food is amazingly tasty, makes this place uniquely awesome! I've eaten here several times and there are still things on the menu that I wanna eat. For starters, you gotta have the fried chicken.

    Absolutely AMAZING!!! I'm visiting the LA area from the Bay Area and I found this gem of a restaurant! When I saw that EVERYTHING on the menu is gluten free I had to go! (Yes, they do also offer regular buns and pasta, but other than that everything is made gluten free and all made in-house! They are also VERY AWARE and cautious of cross contamination procedures) The service was great, staff is very knowledgeable! I really enjoyed meeting Chef Johnny and talking with him! It's not often you find a chef who is so involved in the "front of house" operations in a restaurant! I also loved his passion about cooking! Let me start by saying: SAVE ROOM FOR DESSERT!!! I had a side of GF Mac and Cheese to start! Yum! But probably not the best idea as it filled me up a bit. I ordered the Short Rib dinner which came with mashed potatoes, AMAZING! The flavor was great, the meat was tender...I was very happy! Everyone had said save room for dessert...well...ok. I boxed up half my dinner and ordered the S'mores Pie for dessert! The marshmallow topping is torched right at your table, to give the top of the pie a "roasted marshmallow" effect, so delicious! I'm only here until Wednesday, but I will be back! I can't wait to try more of the menu!

    AMAZING!!! The food was so good as well as the service!! My non-gluten free boyfriend loves it too!! :)Went here twice in two days. Literally EVERYTHING is gluten free on the menu except for the pasta and bread but just tell them you have an allergy and they will give you gluten free bread and pasta instead!! The head chef/ co-owner has Celiacs too, so you know that what you're going to be eating is perfect quality

    Great gluten-free option in Los Angeles. My non-gluten-free husband loves it also. Good selection of desserts, all the food I've had so far was very yummy. Great place to go before or after a show in LA. Near the improv (and many other places). The servers are always so friendly, one of the nicest things about this place!

    All items offered gf! And they have a Vegan menu! Waiter knew what few things on the menu had dairy, and double checked with the chef. I Got the short rib with coleslaw and red cabbage, yum! All made from scratch! Loved it! And my fb got a wurst with jalapeƱo and cheese and loved it! Sweet potato fries with mango habanero ketchup was great too!

    The place is amazing! The ENTIRE menu is GF, and, HOMEMADE!! They recently got their beer/wine license and, yes, they have GF Beer as well! I had the Carnivore Burger on a GF bun. The burger was outstanding and the bun was by far the best I've ever had. I also had the WeHo Fries...fantastic. I finished it off with homemade cookies 'n cream ice cream and a GF brownie...both were awesome. I don't know why this place doesn't come up higher on the "Find Me Gluten Free" list...Find Me...you should be ashamed of yourselves, :(( I'm already planning my next trip back for the Pork Belly, then the Homemade Gnocchi with Carbonara (yes, GF Gnocchi!)!!
