Update-9/19/21 wonderful wine dinner with outside seating. Chef prepared a perfect GF meal for me to pair with the wonderful Argentinian wine.

Update-3/12/20 Another great meal. The chef is amazing. I posted the menu for this special dinner. Some parts of my meal differed from the menu to make sure it was GF. Let them know beforehand that GF is for medical reasons and they bend over backwards to prepare a safe meal.

Update- had them deliver dinner 1/26/20. As usual they worked with my gluten free diet and my meal was amazing.

Update- went to a wine dinner last night 7/25/19. What an awesome meal. The chef actually works with my dietary needs. They have me in their system as celiac. If you go, call ahead to give them a heads up. They are wonderful to work with.

Still awesome! Went to a wine dinner there 9/20/18. They worked with my dietary needs. The menu for the dinner did have to be changed, but the food went great with the wine and I had no issues. Call ahead so that they are prepared and can work with you.

Update- Since this review I have attended wine dinners and even their New Years Eve party. I still call ahead and they do a wonderful job preparing my food.

I have eaten there a few times since being diagnosed with celiac. I attended wine dinners. The kitchen worked with me on a menu and the staff was excellent in double checking everything. I think calling ahead helped to avoid any issues.

I had the gf pasta and had no issues, it was delicious. I agree portions are small for the price, but I will definitely go back: )

We gave this restaurant several chances and were disappointed every time. Our food was always very under or over cooked, fruit was moldy, restaurant is overcrowded and loud with tiny cramped tables. The restroom is awkwardly placed in the entrance to the kitchen and very close to some tables. The prices are ridiculous for the serving sizes and quality of the food. Avoid the gluten free pasta, they don't know how too cook it. We got sick on two of the three occasions we ate there. Not a good place for folks with food intolerances or anyone else for that matter.
