Menu is clearly labeled for GF. We ordered several small plates and "entrees" for everyone to share. Good portions, brought to the table fresh from the kitchen, did not feel rushed. Enjoyed the grilled octopus, pig & fig, pork belly tacos, greek meatballs, shrimp; ribs were a bit too sweet. Great desserts too, loved the orange panna cotta!

LOVE this place!! The batter used happens to be GF.. they seem to embrace this aspect and have maintained safe fries, fried calamari, etc.

I do wish they would invest in GF bread like Coopershawk..

I got violently ill less the 24 hours of eating here. They claimed they were accommodating, understood cross contamination and all the safety questions I usually ask but it was all false information. I am so sick off a meal that cost 100 dollars and was small "shareable" portions. Bastards.

This place is the real deal. My son and I have celiac and rarely eat out, but this is our go-to place for birthdays and special occasions. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable; never had an adverse reaction despite being extremely sensitive. We highly recommend! Our favorites are fried kale, general tso's cauliflower, fried chicken bites...and who are we kidding: everything marked "gf" is amazing!

We underestimated this place! We moved to the area last year but just tried last night. It’s now tied for my favorite local place! It’s small plates and food was absolutely delicious. Had the mahi mahi (catch of the day) tacos and Korean bbq shrimp. Nearly everything on the menu is gluten free (lots dairy free too) and they use an allergen free oil for fries and other items. Our server said they are always experimenting with new gf dishes trying to make as much of the menu gf as possible.

Very good food! I got the Birria tacos, fries, and creme brulee. They have allergen free oil so anything fried is gf. Most of the menu is gf too.

I went in with a party of 14. The service was so fast too! 5/5 would definitely go back!

I am allergic to all grains and my waiter did a great job of accommodating my dietary needs. The fries are gluten free but I was notified that the fries are made in corn oil prior to placing my order. Very happy and will certainly return!

Ate safely here twice before - but was glutened at dinner on 1/2/20. Based on my level of reaction, I think cross-contact was the culprit. I ordered only items marked GF on the menu, explained to my server that I have Celiac, and asked her to please let the chef and kitchen staff know. She asked me to keep reminding her of this, which I did. I suspect my order was handled without regard for cross-contact, but I can’t be sure. I ordered truffle fries, kale, General Tso cauliflower, and the fried chicken. Everything tasted good, but I am quite ill now.

The staff varies on knowledge about Celiac Disease but I've never had an issue with food being contaminated or being ill. I'd recommend calling ahead to confirm that the menu hasn't changed because last time I went foods featured on the online menu had disappeared including the GF, vegetarian item I planned to get.

However, I was still able to find something different among the daily specials but not what I'd intended. Almost had to leave without ordering.

One of the best celiac dining experiences I've had. Most items on the Spring menu are GF. Was with a group of 4 people. Everyone ordered GF so was able to try several dishes without issues. Favorites were General Tso's Cauliflower, Scallops, and Chicken Cabernet.

The whole menu with the exception for a few items are all gluten free. The waitress assured me the food prep and cooking is done the same for all foods so no risk of contamination. The chop salad was great and so was the lobester mash (Valentine’s special).

Unbelievable food, unbelievably friendly and caring staff! The menu is automatically marked GF and they have dedicated fryers to avoid cross-contamination.

Great place! Delicious food, creative menu, lively atmosphere, attentive and knowledgable staff. The menu had 15 gluten free entrees and several more GF appetizers and sides. We had fried calamari (dedicated fryer) for the first time since my wife was diagnosed with Celiac (more than six years ago) and it was wonderful. My wife had absolutely zero negative reaction to the food. Even if we didn't have Celiac in the family, this is a place we would visit again and again - and the Celiac-friendliness makes it even better. An absolute winner!

Looking for a great night out w/ a wide variety of fresh, delicious gluten free items? This is the place for you! Fantasitic ambiance, knowledgeable staff, with plenty of fantastic delicious gluten free items to choose from to satisfy all needs. For the freshness and quality of the food, the price is absolutely unbeatable.

I have eaten at this restaurant several times and not once had abad experience. All items a shareable. Very much like an American tapas style restaurant. Truly one of kind. There's absolutely nothing stale about this place. They even have a rotating menu that introduces new items to the menu, while keeping all of the customer favorite items to continue to enjoy. I highly recommend this place.
