Great food with lots of options to choose from. Chef Katie Button has earned every accolade she deserves. They understand GF, but with one caveat: the place stays busy and can be kind of a circus. Even if you've discussed your allergy with your server or the manager, you may have random food runners bringing you similar tapas that aren't GF that were meant for other tables. Example: I ordered the serrano ham without bread. The plate arrived with toast points. I thought they'd given me GF bread, but I flagged down my server just in case and found out it was meant for the next table. That said, rest of the meal was perfect, and I had no reaction from the meal.
The food was excellent and the atmosphere was great. However, I ordered only there "GF" labeled plates and told my waiter of my Celiacs and I still had a reaction. I'm not sure where the contamination was as all of the plates I had should not have contained any gluten.
Great little spot in the heart of downtown Asheville. It is always happening. The menu is interesting with lots of gf options. They do not have a dedicated fryer so a few of their items were off limits. Loved the Jamon (ham) and sausage plates. They provide you with gf crackers instead of bread. We also ordered Marcona almonds; olives; spicy octopus; lamb kabobs; shrimp (not our favorite). The service was good. Prices are high. We dropped $120 for the three of us and no drinks. Nice date spot.
Limited but DELICIOUS options for celiac diners, more options for gluten sensitive or gluten diet diners. Stellar staff. Four different types of cured Spanish ham. Sous chef came to the table to go through menu options and answer detailed food prep/ingredients questions. If only they had a dedicated fryer, the tortilla would have been GF as well. Definitely worth a return visit.
I told the waiter I was GF, ordered a GF item but then he served it to me with regular bread and said that it always came that way. Didn't make much sense. He replaced the bread with GF crackers for me but I'm glad I didn't trust the labeling and just believe the bread was GF like the menu suggested.
