We went on a busy Saturday night. The waitress was very responsive. My salad was really good. My son got a burger wrap that he said was good and fries that were way too salty!! Like, not sure if that was a mistake or if that’s the way they always taste, but way too salty! Their menu has a lot of gluten free options and that was really exciting. They had no gluten free desserts except a couple that were made in a shared kitchen with wheat flour/baked goods, etc. The main issue is about three hours later, after the meal, I was feeling pretty much like I had been glutened. My son had symptoms of being glutened as well (he has celiac too). I’m guessing that we dealt with some cross contamination, particularly because it was so busy. This was a bummer because I had seen so many good reviews regarding their ability to cater to a totally gluten free diet. The waitress did let me know that they would take precautions but there’s always a risk, and it turns out she was correct. They say that in their menu too. I might try to go again but if I did I’d try to go when it was not so busy and I would talk to the chef.

Beyond fantastic and the servers are super up on Celiac. I had the green chili cornbread, braised short ribs with handmade corn tortillas and flourless chocolate cake. Try to get a table out on the patio. It’s awesome!

Drove from Tucson to pick up family from the airport and found this place! I have celiac disease so I cannot have gluten. This place caters to being gluten free with the exception of a few items. It was an incredible dinner for my honey and I. The best filet mignon and the nachitos are DELICIOUS! 10/10 will visit again.

I loved my experience here. My boyfriend and I went for our anniversary and had an amazing time. Our server was very knowledgeable and let us know that a majority of the menu if gf, even the cocktails! The patio had a very romantic atmosphere with string lights and a fireplace. The shrimp tacos and prickly pear margarita were delicious. I can’t wait to come back one day!!

We tried the kale and quinoa salad and the brussel salad. For our lunch we had the short rib tacos (it’s more of a shared meal). They come with corn tortillas, guacamole, and fresh pico de gallo. It was fantastic and not fatty at all. Would return.

I’m very sensitive and I didn’t get sick, so that’s something. I didn’t think it was particularly tasty, apart from the incredible cornbread. But I would say it’s safe for celiacs.

Food was good, not great, and way overpriced. And the restaurant was LOUD. Went for lunch on a Saturday and were given a brunch menu to order from. I liked Jewel way better.

My first time eating here. They only had a couple of choices--which is still better than nothing. I had Sea Bass and acorn squash. $30 ! It was only good. No reaction thank goodness. Grills are not deficated.

Was visiting Phoenix and loved this place!! Lots of gf variety! I had the chicken nachos, rib tacos, and chocolate cake for dessert. Amazing. The waitress right away mentioned Titos vodka when I first was seated after mentioning I was gf. You know you're safe when they know about corn vodkas.

CHELSEA'S KITCHEN is another local hot spot. It is located next to the valley's favorite hiking area, Camelback Mountain. The staff is extremely knowledgeable about serving safe gluten-free food and takes it very seriously in their restaurant.

Yum! One of my favorite gf spots in the valley. Fries in a dedicated fryer, although the they do have seasoning with brown sugar, but I'm told it's gf. Short ribs and short rib tacos are to die for!

Excellent dining experience. The Kale Quinoa Salad was delicious, and they eagerly omitted the Parmesan cheese since I also have dairy intolerance. About 90% of the menu is either already gluten free or is easily modified. The owner is a member of the Celiac Board in town. I'm not sure about breads, pastas or desserts since I wasn't planning on eating any of them.
