    8191 Strawberry Lane #2, Falls Church, VA 22042

    Great restaurant for an elegant meal. Owner is one of the 4 sisters of Celiac-friendly 4 Sisters vietnamese restaurant across the street. Wait staff are very knowledgeable and all dietary requests go through the head chef. Many gluten and dairy free options to choose from. I had grilled squid and whole branzino. Hubby had tuna tartare, salad, and scallops. They make sushi on site but i didn't ask if they offer GF soy sauce. They had a GF almond tart for dessert (as well as the usual mango and raspberry sorbets).

    Serves only Pho (Vietnamese beef soup). Only gluten in the resraurant is in the optional hoisin sauce. Staff barely speaks English, but all you need to know is good quality Pho is naturally GF.

    Excellent, authentic Mexican food. Corn tortillas made in house. Chips are fried in commingled fryer, but they will sub fresh jicama chips to scoop up salsa and guacamole. Good for groups. Sweet plantains are baked, not fried, and amazing! Tons of safe tequila-based drink options. I'm extremely sensitive and had no issues.

    A safe place to get a nice variety of GF options. Love the fish GF entree. They usually offer Udi's buns and GF beer.

    The GF pizza was great according to my husband. I can't eat corn or dairy, so the pizza and GF penne were not options for me (both are made with corn and rice flour). There are no dishes with meat and vegetables, only pasta dishes, so I asked for a salad with any GF meat on top. NONE of their meats (chicken, steak or shrimp) are GF. They all come pre-marinated. If you have any sensitivities beyond gluten, good luck finding something on the menu.

    Chef's friend has celiac. Staff very knowledgeable. Lovely ambiance and nearly every entree can be made GF. GF fried calamari made with corn meal is amazing.

    Wonderful, trendy Thai restaurant with GF menu and beautiful presentation. They cook with GF soy sauce. Staff is fairly knowledgeable. Sticky rice is amazing and is included with most meals. I am very sensitive and had no issues.

    Delicious pizza, pasta, gelato and sorbets, but cross-contamination is likely.

    Wish they cod make a decent lettuce-wrapped burger instead of a burger patty in foil with lettuce shreds. Safe, but blah.

  • Whole Foods

    2700 Wilson Blvd, Arlington, VA 22201

    Good for groceries but they rarely label any prepared foods GF (due to kitchen cross-contamination I guess?) so hot bar is not safe. Can't understand why they would open a cafe and bar upstairs without the ability to make fresh juices. Many other Whole Foods and Mom's markets have juice bars. Wish they had discount/loyalty programs for frequent shoppers or families struggling to eat for allergies on a budget. They seem more worried about catering to the specialty wine and cheese crowd.

    Has GF pizza (still riding crust) and beer but I've been glutened here. Ok if you're not that sensitive.

    I haven't been glutened here. Love the GF lettuce wraps and beef with broccoli. Online ordering with curbside pickup is really convenient.

    Had an amazing salmon dish but haven't tried the pizza due to fear of cross-contamination.

    I worry about all the fake meat options containing gluten on their menu and many soy sauce containing foods.

    Pretty good lettuce wrapped burger and safe fries. Knowledgeable chain restaurant that tries hard to address allergies.

  • Dogfish Head Alehouse

    6220 Leesburg Pike, Falls Church, VA 22044

    The GF menu has evolved over the last few years, and is now on the back page of the main menu. They now offer Udis buns for burgers and Still Riding crust for pizzas. Salads with grilled salmon over the top are good. Sautéed calamari and grilled wings are good. Tweasonale GF beer on tap and Crispin cider in bottles. Nice that they'll sub grilled asparagus, sautéed spinach or salad for the fries which are not safe. My only concern is potential for cross contamination in the kitchen.

    Meats, sauces, and several sides are GF. Can get GF fries from kitchen next door and treats from GF bakery across the street. GF beer and cider also available.
