The entire place is dedicated gluten free but the food was a huge miss. Nothing any of us ordered tasted good and we were all still hungry. Very disappointed.

Admittedly, my husband is a foodie, and his amazing tastes have rubbed off on me some. I am glad this place is dedicated gf as I have celiac, but the food was meh. The oysters were the stinkiest, fishiest tasting we've ever had: 0/5. The fish taco tasted ok, but fish was dry and tough: 3/5. The enchiladas had such a powerful, overwhelming sauce that you literally couldn't taste a single other ingredient in them: 2/5. And the carnitas were meh. The meat was tender but the seasoning wasn't good: 3/5. The one margarita we ordered was good, but the tamarind powder didn't go with it: 4/5.

It's all very avant-garde, but not very good. I love when restaurants try new stuff, but it takes a good chef to pull it off. Crown Cantina probably does have a good chef creating their menu, but the cooks tonight just were meh.

At $130.00, we'd like to see more quality.

Dedicated they are very misleading. They sourced from shagbark Mills whoever repeatedly spoken to and I’ve told me none of their products are celiac safe and that’s the corn product they used to make their “gluten-free here”. When I brought this up to the owner after somewhat several discussion, they just decided to ignore me, I presented them with emails from Shagbark their supplier themselves

All GF. Delicious food, friendly staff. Went here for a family dinner to accommodate someone with gluten allergy but would go back independent of that as food, drinks, atmosphere and price were all great.

Fabulous experience! Dedicated gluten free—- the server was incredibly kind and knowledgeable. We shared a bit of everything and the flavors were fantastic, highly recommend getting some apps and large plates to share, and a flan for yourself for dessert! Cocktails just as delicious. Such a great find!

This place is 100% gluten free. This is the first time since my celiacs diagnosis I was able to feel comfortable at a Mexican restaurant. The guacamole is wonderful. I tried a sweet potato taco, it was wonderful but SPICY! Next we did the enchiladas with beans and rice, they were very good!! We finished with the churros. I washed all of it down with one of the best margaritas I’ve ever had! We will return.

This may be my new favorite restaurant!. Accidentally stumbled upon it as we were walking to our car from the ballpark.

Everything is gluten-free. Except for their bottled beers. They don’t even allow draft beers or outside food to be brought in due to the possibility of contamination.

As mentioned above, the fish tacos are to die for! The restaurant also has a rotating dessert. We had a churro, also gluten-free and very good!

OH MY GOD THIS PLACE IS AMAZING. Great service, amazing food, excellent drinks. Whole place is gluten free! The guacamole is worth every penny. And the fried fish tacos! As someone with celiac it was a joy to have safe fried food. Everything is made in house. I can't wait to eat here again! Oh, and get the Camote Asado, you're welcome.

Great experience. Got a classic margarita, guava jalapeño margarita, and the brisket taco, Baja fish taco, cilantro avocado margarita and the chicken verde enchiladas. We also enjoyed the tres leches cake for desert. The chicken verde enchiladas weren’t our favorite but we loved everything else! We did confirm with the server all food items in this restaurant are gluten free! They do charge extra for tostadas without telling you though so be careful with that! Highly recommend.

Cozy 100% gluten free kitchen. Eclectic Mexican menu with specialty cocktails, wines, beers. Not all bar cocktails are GF so be careful with that. Try to get a table if you have more of a farm boy build like me. The bar stools can be a bit narrow in the hips for a size 38. 😀

The food was fantastic and everything in the place is gluten free except a few drinks. The price was affordable for the quality and quantity of food. The staff was all so nice and hospitable. I made a reservation on open table and added a note that I have celiac. A week later a friend of mine went on my recommendation and mentioned to her waiter that I had recommended it and appreciated the fact that I could eat there safely. They remembered me and said that they had a staff meeting the night I went to make sure that all staff were very careful to keep me safe.
