They have a separate gluten free menu and they're great about making accommodations but when asked why certain dishes from the main menu weren't on the GF menu, the chef didn't know. The GF menu is also a really small compared to the regular menu. Otherwise it would have 5 stars!
Extensive GF menu. Delicious tapas & homemade sangria. The atmosphere is pleasant, but much less interesting than the St Pete location. Love the food and it's nice to have so many choices.
Not good for especially sensitive folks, but it's got a ton of options (including vegetarian ones) if you aren't as concerned with cross-contamination. I'd never had a problem with getting things gluten free at the Ceviche in Sarasota, and I hadn't gotten sick in over a dozen visits to that location, or in a couple of visits to the one in St. Pete. A lot of the menu is naturally GF, so the staff don't have to deal with substitutions, which is always good. But the luck ran out this August at our first visit to Tampa. I talked with our server about it when we first got there and we ordered dishes we'd had before, but I got sick before we'd paid the bill. I'm guessing that there was an issue with cross-contamination. Were it not for the gluten issue, I would have given it 3-4 stars - the food was adequate, but a bit blah compared to the other locations. The patatas bravas were a bit bland and the papas fritas weren't crisp, but the tortilla espanola was fine. The building, however, is really amazing - definitely worth a visit for those who wouldn't have to deal with cross-contamination questions.
Over 80 items on GF menu!
Love this place! Perfect for a romantic date night. There aren't GF indicators on the menu, however most of it is gluten free (except fried things or things served with bread mostly but just ask your server). They have a special on Tuesdays with certain discounted tapas.
Big GF menu. Great food and service.
This place was fabulous!! They have a separate gluten free menu and everything I tried was delicious. Their shrimp ceviche was super fresh, the fried eggplant was very flavorful, and the beef tenderloin was extremely tender. The waiter was attentive to my gluten allergy. There is the risk of cross contamination but we arrived shortly after opening, when it was pretty empty. The waiter said all gluten free requests are prepared fresh. Other food is prepped ahead of time so they can quickly serve patrons. I would return to this establishment.
Tapas Tuesday was a great day to go to our favorite restaurant in St. Pete! Half price on many tapas - including the oxtail in red wine reduction. The quality of the food here is exceptional -yet reasonably priced- and it is safe for my Celiac wife. We've eaten here twice and there has been no gluten reaction. For those who know- that earns an A+.
There are no gluten-free indicators on the menu, but my server was pretty knowledgeable about which tapas were safe for me to consume. I enjoyed the Pollo Ajillo, Vegetables a la Parilla, Patatas Bravas (delicious) & Solomillo a la Parilla (without the cream sauce which is not GF). I wish that there were GF indicators because the menu is extensive; but overall my server was knowledgeable and accommodating and I had a wonderful experience!
