GF menu & educated on CC. Chicken nachos were amazing, as was the smoked brisket. Craft cocktail selection out of this world! This makes for a fun, Celiac safe meal. Negative: parking is valet only in the Middletown location & it’s so, so unnecessary. 😕

Very yummy. They used to have a gluten free menu. Last time I went they handed me the menu, then came to my table and took it away because they don’t offer as many dishes anymore and no longer have a separate menu

They had a separate menu. Items that are gluten free but not celiac safe are marked. Food was very good. Recommend the salsa 4 way.

A small place but well worth it. I had the fish tacos and they were so good. The gluten free corn tortillas were so good and did not fall apart. Also had the nachos with chicken. Lots of food and so yummy. A little on the pricey side but again it’s worth it.

Diego's has an extensive gluten free menu with tons of options. I got the "perfect rice bowl" and gluten free tortilla chips. It was delicious! The vibe in this restaurant is really cool and fun. The kitchen is open to the rest of the restaurant which is unique. I'd definitely recommend eating here!

I come to Newport every summer and always look forward to eating at Diego's. Very knowledgable of what items are gluten free and even bring you GF chips. The fish tacos are my favorite!

Bartender took great care of us, server was eh. The food was delicious, but I write this review quite literally crying in pain less then an hour after my meal and drink. FOOD IS NOT CELIAC SAFE, and while I took a chance eating at a place with no separate kitchen (which is plenty risky), the reviews about this establishments safety for celiacs are completely coming into question. Perhaps a great place if you are not sensitive to cross contamination, because that's all I can gather the cause of this attack to be (unless there was some sort of mix up in the kitchen) and as I said, the food was nothing short of stellar. Also, upon hearing I was a celiac, the bartender came over to our table and assisted me. The server somewhat copped a bit of a 'tude when I informed her of celiacs, which is always annoying. That "subconscious eye-roll" so to speak. Gets a "3" because of glutening, would have been a "5" other wise.

Great Mexican place. Definitely go there if you like Mexican food. They have a lot of gf options. Very tasty. They are, however, a bit heavy on the rice. About half of my dish was rice. Service is also very good.

5 stars for taste and an extensive GF menu. Be cautious though as they list a few fried items on their GF menu even though there's no dedicated fryer.

My favorite spot on the Wharf for gluten free dining. The guacamole is to die for and the dishes are a bundle of flavors in each bite. The wait staff is knowledgeable and attentive to allergies. One waitress in particular, Hannah went out of her way to make sure my white sangria was gluten free. Hannah and the bartender made a delicious concoction. She even brought over the brunch menu so I could pick her brain on what was available. If you are traveling to Newport make sure to stop by this gem on the Wharf. You will not be disappointed.

Great spot, small and fun. Great food and great drinks! You can have their chips and salsa, the salsa four ways is the best. Hard not to fill up on these before your meal comes.

Great food, great menu. BEWARE! Years ago had a major blunder gf wise and decided not to go back. After years passing, reading good GF reviews and children now eating Mexican, we decided to go back. 5 of us are GF. All was well until we requested another chip basket as we had run out . Kids dove in and we soon realized these chips looked different. They were not GF. Long story short Mgr took care of us but damage was done. So if you go, request to see the Mgr upfront so he can oversee your dinner and prep. We will go back, if not for mix up would have given five stars. Kids commented on how excellent the food was..which they never do! Call ahead.
