I went here for a private party with 60+ people but they still gave me very personalized attention to my GF / Celiac diet. I could eat the cheeses, salads, and eggplant dish for appetizer and then had delicious assortment of chicken, pork, steak for dinner with potatoes and vegetables. They specifically brought family style platters to me saying “this is gluten free”. Amazing! I get symptoms from gluten and was 100% fine after eating here. They even brought out a delicious chocolate molten cake that GF for me! Highly recommend. The staff is knowledgeable and very attentive to GF diet.

Great service - marked GF items on menu. Cognizant of cross contamination. And wonderful food.

One thing - they have a beer on their menu marked gluten free, it's actually a gluten reduced beer so it's not.

I’ve been here so many times and been totally fine, but unfortunately got glutened last week. They don’t mark their food with a flag or anything when they bring it to your table, and they don’t confirm it’s gluten free when they put it down. The waitress said they have a dedicated GF fryer now - in the past I’ve ordered potatas bravas and they’ve pan cooked the potatoes for me to be safe from cross contamination. I was feeling sick within 10 minutes of eating the potatoes. I won’t be coming back to this location. The one in the south end is much better with confirming safety.

Our server marked the menu with what is possible to be GF. We were also asked about cross contamination sensitivity. Gluten free bread was provided (on our bill appeared as free, not sure if always the case but so awesome to not be charged for bread!). Food is DELICIOUS.

Come here all the time as a celiac and always feel great. One time they brought something with bread (we asked to be sure) and they felt so bad they gave us free dessert even though I hadn’t had any. Food tastes great and servers always happy to mark up the menu for options. They also ask about CC which is great.

they are great with cross-contamination and gf! the patatas bravas can be made gluten-free and are delicious! the swordfish is also gluten-free. they mark up the menu with gluten-free options, and they sometimes have gluten-free bread, but i usually call first to check. they also have gluten-free yogurt with fruit (not the granola, because I don’t eat oats) tortilla, and even chocolate cake! most of the menu is gluten-free.

We had a fabulous dinner here! Our server marked up the menu with the few things that weren’t GF and also which were GF but we needed to have them cooked separately. Lots of options. It wasn’t made there but they also brought GF toasted bread to dredge in the olive oil and made sure our son had a separate plate. Super impressed by how knowledgeable our server was about celiac!

I’m sad to report that I got glutened here. The waitress marked my menu of what could be made without CC and we even got gf bread for the table. I had a lovely experience eating and thought the food tasted pretty good. However the next day I could not deny my symptoms- I had definitely gotten some gluten and I think it was the patatas bravas.

Delicious food, safe experience! The waiter took my menu back to be marked up when I explained I have Celiac. He double checked that everything we ordered was safe for me. In addition to regular bread and oil they brought me a whole stack of tasty gf toast (couldn’t recognize the brand) and separate oil. We loved the patatas bravas, duck fideos and paella mariscos. Excellent service from everyone there and great food and safety.

While they don’t explicitly have information about gluten free items on the menu, the staff can answer any questions and most of the items are gluten free or can be prepared gluten free. They do have a dedicated fryer so I was able to get Patatas Bravas which I can’t do at many Tapas places. We shared a lot of plates and all were delicious!

Food was absolutely divine. Felt like I was right back in Barcelona! The waiter was great and marked up on the menu exactly what I could eat. So many great tapas options, and literally all of the paella is gluten free! Great dessert options as well! Unsure of their specific celiac precautions, but as someone gluten intolerant this place could not have been better!!

Let your server know you need a menu marked for gluten free- they’ll ask if cross contamination is OK as they will cook your food separately if is not. If you have other allergies they will mark up your menu accordingly. The best food- must order the patatas bravas!

Despite a 2 hour wait we had an unbelievable meal. When we asked about a gluten free menu the first question they asked was do we need to be concerned about cross contamination? On the GF menu they wrote separate pan and use GF bread. No issues and didn’t get sick.

One of the best GF options around. They are very careful with allergic guests and sometimes have a manager oversee the order. They offer GF bread which is pretty good and have a knowledgable staff with extensive menu.

Some of the best GF tapas are hangar steak, potato tortilla, fish a la plancha, garlic shrimp, cauliflower and chorizo w/figs.

They do an excellent brunch as well, def try the GF fried egg sandwich.

This place is terrific! Our server asked about allergies up front, and when I said gluten, she modified a menu and gave us the copy to keep. She was very knowledgeable. The food and the atmosphere are wonderful! My wife and I split a charcuterie & cheese (Jamon Serrano, soppressata, mahon), tapas (potato tortilla, chorizo w/ sweet & sour figs, pork belly), and chocolate cake for dessert. Highly recommend. We’ll be back!
