I was so sad when I got my celiac diagnosis because I thought Athos, which is a long time fav of ours, was a no go. But, they are actually accommodating! Make sure to specify GF pita. They do not have a dedicated fryer. And their beef has gluten in it. It’s hit or miss on whether staff will know this, but they’ve gotten much better in the last few months and even changed their menu to identify GF items. What I can get there is now much more limited, but you can eat safely here if you advocate and speak up about your needs.

WONDERFUL! I was so happy to hear about this place and then experience it. It was a truly delightful experience with flavorful dishes, kind attentive wait staff, and all together a beautiful dining experience.

We started with the GF pita(!!!!) and 3 dips, then each had the Bistro Filet (with gluten free onion strings made in a separate fryer!!!). Everything was perfect. And dining on an outdoor patio was an added bonus - not to mention the Adele/Amy Whinehouse tunes and the generous wine pours.

Could not say enough. Thank you to the restaurant for taking GF seriously and helping us have a stellar night out ❤

Very good Greek food at a popular restaurant. Most items are GF. Not cheap but good deals on dinner packages to go for four people. They have GF pita.
