Cute hang out spot in North Park. Visited for a holiday event. All cider is gluten free (of course) and much of the food menu is also gluten free.

Nice atmosphere with good food and ciders. Staff was knowledgeable and items were clearly marked. The chicken wings were a bit pricey for the amount served, but enjoyed them nonetheless.

Had the wings, fried chicken (bunless) + fries, and the carnitas tacos. They were so good. The server was really helpful and knowledgeable. All the ciders are also gluten free and very tasty.

Carnitas tacos. Not flavorful and oddly sweet.

We love getting burgers here. The fryer is safe for French fries, the ciders are SO good! Plus, the potato bun doesn’t fall apart, and the fried chicken is GF.

(I’m a celiac) We got takeout from Bivouac, and the ambience was really charming and pleasant. I had spoken on the phone with one of their servers before coming (just to see what their status was on cross-contact in the kitchen), and she mentioned that her sister is also a celiac so she understood perfectly what I would need. Once we got there and re-explained the “allergy” to the people taking our order, they were very quick about it and communicated it to the kitchen, who said that using separate utensils/surfaces/etc. would be no problem at all. Their ciders are all GF and SUPER delicious!! The food was delicious too. Totally would recommend.

Very accommodating and aware staff.

Delicious, changing menu. I miss their gluten free squid ink battered fish and chips.

Very weird vibe here. The staff seemed uninterested in the difference between gluten free and celiac safe. One server told us there were bread crumbs everywhere but that certain dishes were safe anyway. Both servers seemed confused about why I wanted them to tell the kitchen that I have celiac. I don't get sick from cross contamination, just itchy, and I was damn itchy several hours later.

Also, the food wasn't great, the portions were small for the price, we had to fight over the skimpy number of water carafes they gave us, and the staff just seemed to want us gone as soon as possible. I was still hungry after my tacos and would have ordered more food, but they ignored us for a long time, then gave us the check without asking, so we left.

This place was great! Basically everything is gluten free except the buns for burgers. Although our server said there is no dedicated area for GF food prep and I'm super sensitive, I felt pretty confident I would be ok. I feel fine a day later and would totally eat here again! No cross contamination issues!

Menu is well marked and the food is delicious. The waitress was very attentive and checked on ingredients for me whenever I asked. The menu isn't marked perfectly for gluten free and dairy free, so it's worth asking questions.

I have to point out that while I was there, thanks to my questions, they discovered that the gochujang (korean red pepper paste) they were using isn't gluten free, though they thought it was. I knew to ask, because I've been glutened by gochujang before. Goes to show that it's always good to be thorough and ask them to check things. The good news is that they seemed happy to do so and didn't make me feel bad for making them talk to the chef about ingredients. The food I did get was absolutely delicious and the cider flight was tasty and a lot of fun.

I’ve eaten here several times. The staff is very knowledgeable and they can modify any sushi roll to be GF. They also have a large variety of saki :)

This is probably the best GF food I’ve ever had! Their menu is almost all GF and they have a dedicated kitchen space and fryer. The staff was very knowledgeable. They brew their own cider on site, it too was fantastic! I highly recommend this place, it’s my new favorite restaurant.
