    I have celiac disease and notified the server of this. I ordered the items that were marked as gluten free on the menu but unfortunately it was clear within a half hour of finishing dinner that I had been glutened. I do not recommend eating here if you are celiac.

    Yum yum! Staff are knowledgable but no GF menu available. Plenty of options to choose from.

    Even though the server was new, she checked on ingredients for my other food sensitivities and advised me well. She also made good menu suggestions to my dining partners. Another member of the staff thought to bring me a plate of cucumbers to dip in the tasty GF hummus. (I was using my own GF crackers.) I enjoyed the shrimp and corn, too. (Still feeling fine four hours later.)

    Just ask for a manager and they will get your food from prepped boxes that haven’t been touched yet by staff. They are quick to change gloves without even asking!

    I am not sure what you people are eating here that is gluten free. Most of thier items are not gluten free. Sorry but beans and salad is not worth a $75 tab. I am officially done coming to this place. Disappointed in how much they have changed the menu.

    Wonderful restaurant. Knowledgeable staff. Gluten free items are clearly marked on the menu. I’d go again if I return to DC.

    Love me some CaVa. This is a new location as of autumn 2017. It Would be celiac friendly if you make sure they change their gloves but you’d still be taking a risk of contamination with the open kitchen and food containers. That said I’ve never had an issue and I’m super sensitive.

    I wasn't sure after reading that they no longer had a GF menu, but when I stopped in I was excited to hear that they did! Very knowledgeable staff and great food. I'd go back again!

    No longer has a gluten free menu. No dedicated fryer and everything is cooked on the same grill. Everything is at risk for cross contamination.

    Very good. Very accommodating, but ask the manager to help. Sometimes the staff gets confused. Excellent food and safe if you make sure. I think that's pretty standard for everywhere. The food is worth asking for the manager!

    Cabs has a lot of gluten free options but the staff has inconsistent levels of awareness about gluten free options at the restaurant. The menu marks if something is GF or if can be prepared gluten free. One waiter told me the pita bread was gluten free but it definitely is not, trust your instincts and if you are in doubt then ask another waiter or host if you feel uncomfortable! The food is great and they are very accommodating. They were happy to sub out pita for veggies when you order hummus.
