Food and service were great. They marked up my menu to show what items were not safe or had possible cross contamination. Plenty to choose from and everything was delicious. The leeks dish and the mushrooms with goat cheese were my favorites this time.

They were so attentive jete, that they actually marked up a menu and crossed out the things that were not safe. They really know what they are doing and the food was wonderful.

I can't assess all locations of this restaurant chain but the one in Fairfield CT has plentiful gluten free options, particularly the tapas. The wait staff is generally (though not always)knowledgeable about celiac and make great suggestions as to appropriate choices. When they aren't helpful, the manager is easily summoned and accommodating. The food is good and there's great variety.

Everyone is very knowledgeable about what on the menu is gluten free. They have a gf dedicated fryer so many of the fried items on the menu can be prepared gluten free. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone with celiac

This is a Tapas restaurant and they were so very aware of making sure my food was was GF. They change their menu and occasionally. When they found out I had celiac’s they took my menu and crossed out what I couldn’t have. That made me so confident that what I was ordering was GF. Food was amazing, staff was great. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

So good! Almost everything was gf. The tapas were very delicious and filling. Not as crazy expensive as I would have thought. Wine cheaper here than other places.

Went here for my birthday. I’d say that about 80% of the menus is or can be made gluten free (I even had dessert). The food is pretty good and the staff is knowledgeable. I’d definitely go back.

Absolutely love this place, have eaten here many times with no issues. They mark up the menu for you and are very clear and careful. Offer GF bread, though it’s nothing special. Lots of options!

Our sever Zachary was incredibly helpful. He took my menu and marked what could be done GF and how it would be modified (roasted s fried). Zachary’s knowledge took the worry out of eating out for me and I really appreciate it. The food was delicious and came out timely. Definitely will return.

The server will mark up a menu for you. They will even ask whether you are sensitive to cross contamination and modify depending on that (eliminating things typically cooked on shared surfaces). The server even offered to get chips from bar taco if I wanted that instead of the bread they bring out.

Plenary of GF offerings they seem to be up on prep as well. Sometimes with a larger group sharing can be the tricky part.

One of my favorite restaurants! Visited during a trip to Yale after I’d just gotten back from Spain and it was phenomenal! The staff was the friendliest and the food was delicious! Definitely a must-visit place! I’m a very sensitive Celiac and didn’t get sick!

Waiter immediately went to talk to the manager, who went to talk the chef, when I mentioned my allergies. They marked up the menu noting everything I could eat and if any modifications were needed and asked about my toleration of cross contamination. When I said I was sensitive they said they could use a separate fryer for some of the items. Food was super delicious (chorizo, octopus especially) and the atmosphere is fun (but loud). Will definitely go back.

They have a lot of gluten-free options, I wish they had more “vegan gluten-free” options. If they did, we would go there more often. The staff is very knowledgeable and courteous. They work with you. Manager and staff are very friendly!

This is my favorite place in New Haven. I am celiac and eat here almost once a week. They mark up a menu for you and understand cross contamination issues. I always feel safe eating here. Tons of options.

Marked up our menu for what was/wasn’t gluten free. They made a few errors which was concerning, but obvious (the empanada was marked GF but isn’t). The food was definitely 5 stars

Wonderful lunch. Excellent atmosphere, food, and drinks. Staff and chef were very accommodating of dietary needs. Just ask for assistance with the menu and they will take care of you. Best meal I've had in Boston.

I inquired about the delicious gluten free bread served with some of the tapas and was told the chef comes in to bake it homemade and fresh every morning-it is to die for! Many delicious options here.

Staff was extremely accommodating. The manager marked up a copy of the daily menu to indicate gluten free options. She was careful to exclude the items made using a shared fryer. Fantastic accommodations and the food was great too.

They have a GF fryer. Since it’s tapas and we (party of 4) order a ton of food I was hoping that when each dish was brought out, the runner would announce if it was GF or not but that didn’t happen. They brought out the mussels with slices of bread right on top. The manager then came over and was very apologetic. I do wish the entire operation had better communication practices. Food was delish as always.

Staff was incredibly helpful. The marked up the menu to show what we could order. No dedicated fryer, but most of the menu can be made gluten free. The waiter followed the order to the kitchen just to confirm everything was ok with the staff. Best service I've ever had.

Staff was very knowledgeable about gluten free (marked up the menu for me) however there were not many options. Could only have meat/cheese, salad, and tapas that were not cooked. Was looking for something more filling, very unfortunate

No separate gluten free menu, but our server made a point of immediately asking about any allergies or food sensitivities, and when I mentioned gluten he immediately suggested certain items on the menu and said he'd reiterate with the kitchen. Very pleased!

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.

Great food! Very knowledgeable staff. They highlighted a menu with gluten free options - there were many! Rare to find gluten free charcuterie. They offered a separate plate of olive oil for the gluten free bread. All in all a great experience.

Very knowledgeable staff. No dedicated GF menu, but they will mark the menu up for you. They understand celiac and swap out pans to avoid cross contamination. We eat there often and have never gotten sick. Delicious and safe!

Our waitress was very knowledgeable about what menu items were already gluten free and where in the kitchen they were made to avoid cross-contamination. The food was delicious, and the gluten free bread was amazing.

Great stuff. Full restaurant on a Wednesday night, so I sat at the bar. The bartenders asked the chef to mark up a menu with GF options, and there were at least a dozen tapas, a few salads, and more. Great service and delicious food.

I became a Barcelona regular after attending my company holiday party here in 2013. Since then, I've been here easily 20 times over the past year, and have never once had an issue with GF. The majority of the items on the menu are naturally gluten free, and the ones that aren't do not pose an issue for cross contamination. The staff is generally speaking very knowledgeable about the menu, and if the waitperson does not know, they ALWAYS have asked the chef. GF considerations aside, the food and service are consistently excellent here, and while there is always a core set of staples on the menu, every week there are new specials and creations, none of which have ever disappointed. Can't recommend Barcelona enough.
