This place is AMAZING! It is a great spanish restaurant style tapas restaurant. The patatas bravas WERE TO DIE FOR! Dedicated fryer - the chef even came in to verify the separate fryer. The waitresses marked the menu off of what isn’t GF. We had the patatas bravas, potato tortilla, radicchio, paella verduras, and parillada barcelona, & even the basque cheesecake! The wines & sangria (especially buns&roses) were great! It is a very popular restaurant so would recommend booking a reservation!

Great experience!

I’m celiac and am very sensitive. Their staff was knowledgeable and helpful.

Got the Spanish tortilla, tuna crudo, and the chocolate cake! I had to get the cake because I haven’t had one in years and it was amazing!

I was curious about why a lot of the charcutière options were not on the gluten free menu, but better safe than sorry!

I love the other locations but this place sucked. Music was super loud, they told me everything was gluten free and celiac safe with no cross contact but I got really sick, worst reaction I've had in years (including the coffee shop that put graham cracker crumbs on top of a latte). Food was also just not that good really.

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!

Wonderful experience. They were knowledgeable about gluten and offered to adapt a number of dishes to make them GF. The staff were very nice and accommodating. And the food and drinks were delicious.

This used to be one of my go to spots and always felt safe. I have experienced symptoms my last two visits, very soon after eating. Disappointing but I’ll have to take it off my list.

Staff is knowledgeable and food is great. Even has a dedicated fryer (but I’ve been warned the “dedicated fryer” wasn’t available on certain visits which had me nervous).
