My husband took me here last night for our one year wedding anniversary. I’ve been wanting to go since I saw it on the “find me gluten free” app a few months back. This place was definitely gluten free friendly and our waitress was wonderful and reassuring about everything. There was even gluten free bread to start! The whole staff was friendly and welcoming. The food was delicious and exactly what I imagined, if not better. I really liked that it was BYOB due to them not having a liquor license at the moment because we were able to bring what we like to drink and it didn’t skyrocket our bill. I’m actually going to be more bummed when that’s no longer an option. The ambiance was perfect, we moved to a table closer to the fireplace where it was toasty warm. It was absolutely perfect. I 100% recommend this place and will be back!!

ARI, the owner was so very welcoming. She explained that very little flour is used in their kitchen ( BTW the kitchen is visible from the entry). I have eaten at this restaurant several times and have had NO issues. The food was amazing. I spoke to the chef on the phone. He assured me that most of their dishes are gluten free, by nature. As always, if you are VERY VERY allergic, you need to only eat at a restuarant that is GLUTEN FREEand totally exclusive.
