Update: had dinner here a second time (Jan 2020) and got sick from cross contamination. No longer recommended Decent German food! Very old restaurant with lots of history. There are a few gluten free options marked right on the menu. All staff are knowledgeable and friendly about Celiac's and GF allergies. The flourless chocolate cake at the end was my favorite part!

Many GF options and a great awareness by wait staff and the kitchen. I highly recommend The Berghoff, especially if you want a taste of Munich in Chicago.

Excellent! The food was exceptional. The staff wrote down that we needed gluten free. They had ton of options! So much so that my husband ordered a second gluten free entree so I could try his. We had bacon wrapped shrimp with polenta for an appetizer and they had two options for gluten free desserts! I got the caramel cheesecake! I would highly recommend. So impressed. I will definitely be back.

We went for lunch. Totally took care of the celiac in group. She had the roasted chicken and loved it. The others had the goat cheese salad and the beet salad; both good.

So three meals and no one was glutened, but the food was 'uninspired'. Yes it's an institution, worth a visit, but the foods nothing to write home about (except to say it was safe!).

I had the sauerbraten and it was delicious. The gravy is a bit sweet and the potatoes are a bit bland, but add a little salt and its pretty tastey.

The bacon wrapped shrimp was amazing. Everything tasted good. On the menu it said something along the lines of their kitchen is certified by beyond celiac in preventing cross contamination. Everything tasted good and I had no reactions.

Tried it after speaking to the restaurant via email, reading reviews and discussing at length with waitress. Had the scallops, the zucchini noodles and the bacon wrapped shrimp. Wonderful food but was sick the next day..

Didn't wind up eating there. There was no gluten free beer and no gluten free options on the happy hour menu. The service was very slow and couldn't really answer any questions so we decided to move on and eat somewhere else after the first round of drinks.

Had the penne with vodka sauce, didn't have much flavor. Mom gave me her mushrooms from the gf chicken which helped. gf salted Carmel cheesecake is delicious! Thank you! Why can't Cheesecake Factory do that??? Mom didn't lik the texture of what she expected to be mashed potatoes, rice? Ice tea was very good. So was my son's ice cream.

This place was definitely celiac friendly but the food was not that great, which is why we give it only three stars. For the price of the food we expected much better flavor and our meals just didn't deliver.

In a word, Superb! I really enjoyed my meal (saurbraten). Lots of gluten free options, even deserts and cider! Nice wood, comfortable decor and staff was knowledgeable and friendly. Price was reasonable for downtown Chicago. I will certainly be back, maybe tomorrow!

It was good and felt safe. I just had potato salad and beets in the café downstairs. The beets were very good. the German potato salad had a little too much vinegar for my taste. I ate it all though.

Separate kitchen, the GM'S child has Celiac and she is heavily involved in the Celiac circles with U of C hospitals, lecturing etc. according to our waitress Esther! told my celiac friend about it and we will all be back!!!! Best place since our find in central coast California!!

My husband and I just stopped by to get a drink and an app... The bacon wrapped shrimp was on point, but only came with three shrimps so you should probably not plan to share this (you won't want to at least). They had GF cider too so it was great for what we were doing! *only did 4 stars because we didn't get a meal there and I don't know what kind of options they have for that.

We came here for lunch after reading reviews. My 8 year old son is celiacs and I was so excited for him to have choices. However while the gf menu is nice there are really no options for children. Not one item on kids menu is gf so he ended up getting the $17.00 lamb entree for lunch. There were really no sides except for German salad or cabbage. So he left hungry and frankly I would have gone some where else for the cost. Good for adults not children!

The owner's daughter has Celiac. This always makes me feel safe from the start. The staff was knowledgeable and accommodating. Our bar tender made a special note on our order and spoke to the kitchen too. Tasty food that I would enjoy going back for!
