    Not especially impressed. GF menu was limited. Food OK. Much prefer the choices at Oxbow Market.

    Bread pudding? That is safe to eat? Really... Grabbed some desserts, bread, and cheese straws during a recent visit. I'm definitely going back (assuming Oxbow market survived the 6.1 quake).

    GF pitas! Whaaaa?! I discovered this place a little later than I should have. Got takeout once and ate on the patio the second time. Food is good, but not amazing. A safe place to grab lunch. I had chicken kebabs and one of the pita sandwich things.

    I agree with all the points in the previous review. Menu is clearly marked for GF and staff is knowledgeable. There are plenty of choices here. I had the seafood curry and my BF had lamb curry. They serve it with a choice of condiments so you can dial the spiciness up if you'd like. Very good. We dined downstairs on the patio and it wasn't too noisy.

    Separate prep area and condiments for gluten-free. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable about GF needs. Sandwiches are fresh and tasty. I ate here twice for lunch on a trip in July.

    I'm glad I spoke with the sever before ordering. Loteria offers a GF menu, but shares prep surfaces, so cross contamination could occur. She specifically said the surface used to cook tortillas was used for both wheat and corn. I chose not to dine here.

    Separate GF menu also clarifies how they prep GF pizza and pasta to avoid CC. We started with the caprese salad which was good. I had the GF cheese ravioli with arrabiatta sauce...a splurge...how often do you see GF ravioli? Super tasty! Felt safe eating here and would definitely try it again.

    Super tasty kabobs! Not dedicated gluten-free. They do have a separate GF menu. Had the chicken kabobs (huge portions!) and grape leaves as a starter. Didn't experience any CC issues the two times I've visited.

    Though the menu isn't marked, everything on the menu is gluten-free except some desserts. I called ahead and the waitress also confirmed it. That said - awesome tequila selection. Very tasty, fresh Mexican. I had the chicken enchiladas with fruit mole sauce. Rice and beans are ordered separately as sides. My friends ordered the shrimp and chile rellenos. Tasty all-around.

    After reading an online review, I was under the impression that these guys tried to avoid cross contamination. Wrong! The service at the counter was appalling. The guy actually said something along the lines of, " If you're going to die if you're exposed to wheat, I can't guarantee there won't be some flour in your food."Don't waste your time with this place. You'll pay a couple extra bucks and get sick doing it. (Admittedly, I walked out after the staff's tactless comment).

    123 E Colorado Ave, Telluride, CO 81435

    There are GF options here, but I didn't feel totally safe eating here. I opted for the tamale plate after learning that the enchiladas were somehow contaminated with the oil used for the battered chile rellenos and the tacos were prepped on the same surface with wheat flour tortillas. The menu is not marked, so you have to ask the staff. You might not get the same answer from different folks. I didn't get sick, but felt safer at Honga's.

    Sigh of relief! Not only were they willing to accommodate us when we showed up 15 minutes before the kitchen closed (10pm), but they had the only clearly marked GF menu we found in Telluride. We shared the asparagus salad and yellow curry with chicken. The asparagus was good, but I was pretty impressed by the curry. I'll admit that in a ski town I expected one of those bland curries with a bunch of veggies. This one had some spicy ginger/lemongrass bite to it. Very tasty. They've also got a premium selection of tea and what looked like a full bar downstairs. There were several GF menu options. I'd definitely recommend this as a celiac-safe option.

  • Allred's Restaurant

    5 starsAugust 08, 2013

    565 Mountain Village Boulevard, Mountain Village, CO 81435

    Wow! Even if I couldn't eat a thing the view would be worth 5 stars. Luckily, there's celiac-friendly food too. The menu is not specifically marked with GF options, but our server was knowledgable and helpful to suggest choices. Both soups were GF and they were willing to sub the salmon into the halibut setup if I wanted to avoid the salmon's original panzanella salad pairing. Dessert options included flourless chocolate cake (with salted caramel ice cream and raspberries) or sorbet. I started with corn chowder - yum! For my entree, I ordered the halibut (no compromises as this dish was naturally GF) and my guy had the salmon. My dish was awesome and my guy swore his danger-encrusted (breaded) salmon was perfectly cooked. We shared a flourless chocolate cake for dessert - also yum. Two cautionary notes:1) There's no BYOB. 2) Ladies, don't bother with high heels. There are thick rubber mats full of holes at the gondola station. Easy to trip.

    This was our favorite place for morning coffee. I had the GF Blueberry Pancakes for Sunday Brunch which were fluffy and tasty (and cooked on their own pan). They were served with whipped cream, so if that's not your thing, be sure to opt out. They also offer GF bread and wraps for sandwiches, though I didn't try them out myself. The restaurant is small, but we never had a problem finding seats for two even during the Jazz Festival.

    I emailed asking why Blackened Seitan Napolean is on the GF menu since Seitan IS wheat gluten, but never received response. Ignorance of ingredients that contain gluten is a huge red flag. I wouldn't recommend eating here until they fix that! (I'm local, so hopefully I can speak with them and post an update).

    The Winter 2013 dedicated Gluten-free menu includes shrimp served on a bed of farro. The server was very apologetic and the kitchen (who was alerted to a gluten "allergy" initially) remade the dish with rice. Did not feel safe.

    Definitely a large selection of GF entrees which are clearly marked on the printed menu (though not online). I had the Local Catch (grouper) with JuJu Slather. Our server was attentive and familiar with GF requests. My fish and boyfriend's chicken were good. Sides were OK. Restaurant is open, noisy, and looks out onto the marina. Good for large groups and good for watching the holiday boat parade. Margaritas were a little light on the tequila.

    By far both the best food and the best coffee we had during our trip. I called ahead and Zulma emailed me the gluten-free menu. I ordered the Arepa paisa con queso as a starter and the Delicious (seriously, that's its name! And it lives up to it!...lobster and shrimp with tomatoes and mushrooms in a white wine sauce over rice). My boyfriend had the Colombian Grace Salad and the Monserrate Steak. We finished the meal with hot chocolate. We went back to pick up coffee and hot chocolate to-go the morning we drove back. Be sure to check hours. They're open for dinner Tue-Sun and breakfast Sat/Sun.

    Make sure to visit the Elizabeth Street location since they don't carry GF at the Duval location. The GF Key Lime Pie slices are frozen and there's a patio outside where you can hang out and eat. This was my only GF dessert for the trip!

    829 Fleming St, Key West, FL 33040

    Combo of small organic market and restaurant. We ate here twice during our stay. I ordered the coconut curry with chicken and a half-portion of Indian Summer Salad. Both were tasty, though I was mildly annoyed when I heard the running commentary from the kitchen staff that the salad I had ordered did not contain gluten and therefore the ticket didn't have to be written up to request GF. Maybe I got lucky and she performed the necessary ablutions after preparing the previous customer's whole wheat wrap. I'd recommend specifying that you have an allergy to avoid contamination.

    We ordered 3 taco combos and sampled the shrimp, chicken, fish, and beef tacos (with rice and black beans on the side). My favorite was the chicken...very tasty when paired with New Planet's Off Grid Pale Ale. Server was knowledgeable about GF requirements and I felt safe eating here.

    Separate GF menu. Be sure to follow their notes about avoiding cross contamination. I order pan seared items instead of grilled items. The New Orleans BBQ Shrimp is my favorite dish, though I've tried several other fish entrees and sides. All solid. Have had non-GF teriyaki sauce served with the salmon at this location. The staff apologized and remade my dish.
