Have had several good experiences here years ago, but tonight we were seated and waited 20 mins at our table with no server coming over. We asked the hostess and still no one came over. Our two young kids were starving and crabby so after 30 mins we gave up and left.

Absolutely my new favorite Colombian restaurant. The menu is large but not too expensive and very well labeled. The service is attentive enough but not overly unctuous. Happy hour runs 11 AM to 11 PM. What’s not to love?

My favorite joint in BK! They are super knowledgeable about celiac and gluten free customers. Flavors are delicious and staff are always so nice! It's authentic Columbian food! The steak and veggie emptiness are my absolute favorite. You also get a bang for your buck for lunch vs dinner. My favorite dishes are the plantain crusted chicken and skirt steak!

Extensive GF options on the menu, and I didn't get sick at all, so in terms of gluten I would say it's safe. However, the food didn't taste very good (overcooked, dried out, generally lacking in flavor) and the service was terrible. We waited 10 minutes for someone to take our order, another 10 minutes for chips and guacamole, then almost 45 minutes before food arrived, and no one checked on us in the meantime. Maybe they're better for takeout.

Despite being reassured by my server several times that everything was fried in the gluten free fryer, I spent the night on my best friend’s bathroom floor getting sick all night long. Ruining my vacation. Don’t eat here if you’re Celiac.

Excellent! Just order the lasagna (yes lasagna) and thank me later. Sooooo good. Most of the menu is gluten free. Pricey. But you're not eating dinner in Park Slope for cheap.

This place is so wack. No phone orders. The arepas are literally just the corn meal bread. No filling. Got chicken and cheese and it was the corn patty with cheese and chicken on top of it. Carry out and there were no utensils or napkins.

Used to be my favorite place, but they aren't careful....They got popular and don't care anymore. They served me raw food and told me that's how they make the food! Lol forgetting that I have allergies, they just don't know how to cook for non-allergic guests either.

A bit on the noisy side. But what really got them down to only 2 stars is the food was horribly salty. Almost inedible. Latin restaurants in general have salty food, but this was the worst.

Absolutely delicious food! They were so accommodating. I wanted to know if the coconut mussels could be GF and it turns out that the side of bread they put in it is the only reason it's not listed GF so they made my dish without. Everything was so savory. Definitely coming back here!

Wonderful place, the first place in the neighborhood I could go to safely. Take advantage of the gluten-free fryers for some great cornmeal empanadas or any other fried foods you've been missing. They also have gluten-free pancakes on weekends. I've never had a problem, and their gluten-free selections have only gotten more extensive, and more delicious, over time.

Eat here, it's amazing.

First my only complaint: the plantain chips they served to the table weren't cooked in one of their dedicated gluten free fryers.

Now for all the good stuff: The majority of the menu is gluten free. It was nice to have the normal menu in a restaurant and have so many things to choose from.

In my party of seven everyone was very happy with what they ordered. The food was absolutely delicious and some of the best I've ever had. Well seasoned, flavorful, fresh and colorful.

There is a link to their menu on Findmeglutenfree.com, but to summarize their menu is Colombian/Latin American cuisine.

The ambiance was great to. Very funky cool restaurant. Can't wait to go back.
