The restaurant has quite a few options for GF, but there’s simply too much cross contamination. My Nima sensor tested positive on all three “gluten free” entrees. Definitely a spot for gluten sensitive, but not full blown celiacs. I passed on eating of course and waited until I was home.

Such good food, I had the fajitas. I’m pretty sensitive to cross contamination. And I didn’t get sick. Good size menu to choose from as well.

Very good food, kind and understanding staff! I was worried about the food being cc but it was fine. My waitress brought me corn tortillas instead of chips!

GF menu. They are consistently careful about cross contamination and I've never gotten sick from dining in or takeout! Unfortunately, the chips are fried in the same fryer as everything else, only reason for 4 stars.

Gluten free menu. Service was great, food was delicious. Very knowledgeable about cross contamination and waiter knew to point out that the chips are made in the same fryer as gluten food.

Just a heads up - although their menu (both online AND in restaurant) says they have GF chips fried in a separate GF dedicated oil, this particular Bellevue location does NOT. I asked for GF menu, prepared to order the Guacamole & Chips - the waiter made sure I knew the chips were GF but they couldn't guarantee no cross contamination because non-GF items are fried in the same oil at THIS location. Otherwise, their GF menu options are great and service is always good here in my experience.

Cactus has a gluten free menu. There are quite a few choices as well. I chose the steak fajitas with corn tortillas. It was all delicious and fresh. The decor and the service is ok but food and drinks were great.

We had an excellent experience at Cactus tonight. The gluten-free menu had plenty of options (although their tortilla chips are not GF - bummer!) I ordered the carnitas tacos, which were excellent. When I ordered, the waiter made sure to ask if I had an allergy or if I was ordering from the GF menu because of a dietary preference. I felt great that my order was taken seriously.

Although the gluten-free menu does not include tortilla chips (darn!), the food was good, fresh, and safe for us.

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!

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.

Knowledgeable staff. I have eaten here many times and have only had one time when they mixed up the order. I double checked before eating it and they quickly redid the order.

They offer a gluten free menu and the waiters are usually pretty understanding when you order gluten-free. I’ve never had an issue. However, I’m not sure it would be entirely celiac safe as I’m sure there’s some cross contamination happening in their kitchen .

Have been to Seattle locations but was a little hesitant to try a new location...had a great experience here! Waitress was kind & knowledgeable about gf options, separate gf menu had tons of options. Chips are not gf which is a bummer but I wouldn’t be above bringing my own in and the veggie option is delicious with guac. Will definitely be back!
