Symptomatic Celiac

Overall Rating

Review


This place was recommended to me by another celiac and they said that they use a dedicated fryer if you tell them you have celiac. I went last night and the server informed me that they used to do this, but their second fryer for dedicated GF has been down so I couldn’t have anything fried. I’m hoping they get this fixed!! They still had a good amount of celiac safe options, but the options would basically double if fried items were safe again.

Highly recommend! We stopped by and had some tapas (the patatas, mussels, and short rib empanadas) and it was amazing! Perfectly filling for two people and the menu was labeled with what was GF. Drinks are great too! Highly recommend. Especially during happy hour!

I had booked this dinner reservation a month out, when all the reviews were good. Then, the morning of, we were scrolling through looking for lunch when we saw the newest, terribly unsafe review! We decided to risk it by informing the restaurant about it and exactly why I was nervous. Our server showed great concern (because it hadn’t been accidental, environmental contamination, but the diner being given the wrong food!) and was extremely conscientious, double-checking with us and the kitchen several times. I safely ate the apple manchego salad (delicious!) and a scallop and a scoop of mango sorbet. My non-GF husband and friend really liked their paella and several tapas.

The kitchen and/server mixed up the gluten free and normal crackers. I ate about 5 normal crackers before one of my friends realized they were eating the gluten free crackers I normally buy at home. I doubled checked with the server and she said she would double check with the kitchen. Came back out very apologetic and let me know they had mixed them up. Good food and drinks. If you are celiac triple check with your server that everything you’re eating is gluten free. Worst I have been glutened since being diagnosed about 4 months ago.

Fantastic meal. I had the sweet plantains and glazed beef short rib. Menu is clearly marked and I felt very safe eating there. Will be returning!

The food was excellent! My fiancé and I split three tapas - salmon ceviche, scallop and braised short rib. It was very good and our server was on top of the celiac safety and nut allergy for another family member. The plantains are so good, too!

Very understanding of celiac and precautions necessary. Dedicated fryer if you tell them you have celiac and knowledgeable server didn’t seem phased or bothered at all. Everything we ordered was sooooooooo good I would highly recommend

The menu is prominently labeled as GF and there are tons of options. We started with the plantains and Brussel sprouts as hot tapas. I had the incredibly spicy but also awesomely peanutty and tasty Thai red curry for me meal. We loved it. We’re visiting from out of town but we’ll be back.
