Excellent Dining experience! Each small plate was amazing with varied flavors and the drinks were the same caliber. Fine-casual setting and a bit more on the expensive side, but we’ll worth it for flavors, service and safety. Highly recommend!!

Colita is my favorite restaurant in Minneapolis! The food is delicious, and I love not having to worry about cross contamination since the entire menu is gluten free. The scallops and shrimp tacos are my go to, and it’s always worth it to get the churros!! Yes, it’s expensive, but the food and service are always top tier. Highly recommend!!

Wonderful! Everything we had was delicious and the portions were generous. A bit pricey but so worth it having a nice night out with no worries about what you order. Fun drink menu too!

So happy!! Served tapas-style, so we tried the cold tuna tostada, the cacio e pepe stacked tostada, the spare ribs, the green chile pork tacos, and the corn elote, and liked them all (would go back just for the stacked cheese tostada!). We each got our own churros-with-dulce-de-leche and didn’t regret it a bit! Fun wine selection, too, and my husband enjoyed their version of an Old-Fashioned.

Fully gluten free kitchen. I had zucchini enmolatas and chicken tostados, both of which were wonderful. The only dessert on the menu is churros, but that’s fine because they were incredible. Plenty of outdoor seating, plus it’s mostly open air anyway.

Colita was amazing. Yes it’s a bit pricy but really not unreasonable for a fine-casual experience. The way people talk about it on Yelp make it sound like it’s gonna be the most expensive visit of your life. It’ wasn’t. Two people, two apps, two entrees, one dessert and two drinks came to $100. Completely gluten free, even the churro dessert. We had multiple NA beverages that were gluten free and fun. This is a great date night spot for the gluten free person in your life.

Am I dreaming??? Everything was amazing. The food was exceptional. And to be able to eat dinner with my daughter who has celiac and have her be able to choose from everything without limitation or worry was such a wonderful experience. Shrimp tempura tacos, fried green tomato salad, black bean hummus guacamole and are your kidding me?? churros!! We will be back again and again. Lovely atmosphere and great service too!!

AMAZING ALL AROUND.

All expectations exceeded. Not just delicious for being gluten free, delicious for gluten eaters also! Got stuck in Minneapolis after missing a connecting flight. Staff was amazing and made me a complimentary drink and made great conversation. They felt bad about me missing my flight so the churros were on the house. The pork tacos were so good I momentarily considered moving to Minneapolis. The environment was very modern. Ordered the churros after reading others reviews and they did not disappoint.

The entire kitchen is gluten free, and the food is delicious! I'd come just for the cinnamon sugar churros with dulce de leche. One of the most delicious things I've ever eaten! Shrimp tempura tacos and Kansas City pork ribs were fantastic.

Loved this place! A bit pricy, but didn't feel like we had to dress up or anything. Everything's gluten free, so choosing what to eat was a challenge. Everything we ordered was delicious including the to-die-for churros for dessert. Also, if you sit at the bar you can watch the bartenders making fancy cocktails for added entertainment. Also, although I'd heard it's hard to get a table without a reservation, we (2 people) showed up on a Saturday around 6:30 and half the seats at the bar were open, so no problems!
