Not Celiac Friendly! Do not recommend for sensitive folks.
Great service, fun atmosphere, and they know there gluten free and don't act weird when asked about the food. They heard we were visiting and brought a GF comp desert super yummy.
I wanted to love this place-but they made me (celiac) sick. They were knowledgeable, subbed chips for corn tortillas, but I think in the lunch rush something got contaminated.
I had the best experience at cactus. We were first greeted with this waitress who was very excited to tell me about the restaurant about the gluten free menu when I mentioned that it was our first time there and that I had a gluten intolerance. I asked her what she would suggest and she said the brisket tacos which were fantastic. When we asked for the check she came back with a flan on the house just because it was our first time there! What made it even better was that she knew we were from out of town and that it wasn't very likely we will be back anytime soon. I was impressed and if I fly back to Seattle I will most definitely be back!!
Fabulous food and drinks - all servers are conscious of gluten free!
Two dinners. Both servers very knowledgeable about GF and warned us about the chips. Delicious.
Gf menu for easy ordering. Don't eat the chips if you need a dedicated fryer. I had the tortilla soup and it was very good.
The list their chips as GF with a disclaimer that they're deep fried with flour containing products. It's a huge red CC flag to me. Otherwise the food was great and you should definitely go for a drink!
Mexican & Southwest cuisine. SO good!
great selection of GF items. cross contamination is possible, but I am celiac and did not have a problem. only been once but I plan on returning. edit: been back several times with no problem. I don't eat the chips since they are fried with gluten items, but this is a go to place.
After eating at the Alki Beach Cactus multiple times, I had a work lunch at the Bellevue location. Just as previously, at the other location, I was not disappointed. The grilled portobello–vegetable escabeche was delicious, the staff very knowledgeable, and the portion sizes very generous. I appreciated that the waitress asked whether I had celiac disease when I told her I had to eat gluten-free, and that she assured me that she would make a note stating that my food had to be prepared separately. The atmosphere was also very pleasant. I highly recommend this place for celiacs and non-celiacs alike!
Great service and was quick to find out if our daughter was gluten intolerant or celiac. Pointed out immediately she couldn't have the chips. But offered us lots of choices and made sure everything was perfect. The food was amazing and we found several GF items we all loved!
Not just incapable of proving safe food- but incapable of owning their mistake. Will not eat there again. If I could give negative stars I would. I asked for gluten free tacos and the waitress assured me the food would be gluten free. When I was eating I felt a crunch and called the waitress over - she told me it was breaded and that she had put gluten free on the ticket. On my way to the bathroom I heard her telling the manager I hadn't told them I was celiac.
Excellent food and large portions for the price ($$ price range). The staff was extremely knowledgable about gluten free foods and celiac disease. This is always very important to me, as a lot of restaurants don't understand the importance of avoiding gluten and cross-contimination. I was told that the majority of items on the menu were either already gluten free or could be modified to be gluten free. Besides this large variety of delicious foods, I was excited to hear that there were also 3 gluten free dessert options. I ended up ordering the Fajitas with portobello mushrooms and vegetables. For dessert, I had the Tres Leches Flan. I definitely recommend this place. The service is excellent, the staff is knowledgable, the food is great, the location beautiful (you can see the water from the window), and there is a variety of gluten free options (including a good amount of vegetarian meals).
Love this place! They totally understand celiac. They have a gluten free menu and very knowledgable staff. They understand cross contamination. Delicious food! Only downside-their tortilla chips are not gluten safe (no dedicated fryer) but they are quick to mention that.
