This place is a joke for gluten free. They fry or grill most dishes both have opportunities for cross contamination. The fryer is obvious but they grill bread too so that pretty much knocks out the menu.

The staff was very knowledgeable, and there were several good options. I ate here without any reaction. There’s not a separate fryer, though, so anything on the menu that says it’s gluten free but is fried is not celiac-friendly.

I've been here a few times and I've had very knowledgeable wait staff and also very clueless wait staff. Make sure not to order anything fried as they have no dedicated GF fryer.

limited options, a lot of things are fried so cross contaminated, make sure to ask about how things are cooked and prepared.

Wow- many, many items listed as GF. And yet the waiter told me they fry many of those items in a fryer with gluten items. The menu gives very limited descriptions, and after consulting with unknowledgeable & unhelpful waiter for 10 minutes, we gave up and left.

The food was great. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. We ate a late lunch here and were truly impressed. My wife has celiac, diabetes 1; I have Crohn's. Turned out to be a wonderful dining experience.

Wonderful! I ate here twice because the food was good, the staff was awesome and I didn't get sick. The second time I brought back friends (non GF required) and they loved the food also. Tapas plates are good portions. We ordered 3 plates for two people and it was plenty.
