The place is legit gluten free however service is awful. We were there for less than one hour, took forever to get food and then we were asked to leave because they needed the table. Who asks guests to leave their establishment?

Perhaps tip is added automatically because they don't care about their customers.

Shocked and disappointed.

Love this place! Pretty much all gluten free and so delish! We had chiccarone, guac with chips, plaintains and fried yucca, shrimp and avocado salad, soup and the cod. All excellent, esp the margaritas! Super nice people too. Can't wait to go back.

Very good food & service. Got the vegetarian Bandeja Paisa veganized (omit egg).

A little pricey, but not for the area. Space is on the small size, but nice bar & decor.

Tested my dish with my Nima device & all smiles.

Will definitely come again.

Excellent meal. 95% of their menu is already gluten free. Had their empanadas and bread basket with no issues after. Delicious!

They do not have a specific GF menu but most items on menu are already gluten free. It was brunch when I went and they do serve some gluten items (pancakes, toast, etc) but told the waiter of my celiac and was assured everything was prepared in a separate space. Got the shrimp and cheese grits and an arepa, it was sooooo good! I want one right now as I write this review!

Excellent food with numerous GF options. Hard to choose. If I had more time in the city would have gone back. Arepa was delicious. Had a frijoles with steak and plantains bowl. See pics. The place is small so you might have to wait.

Almost everything on the menu is GF, and it’s marked if not. They have a GF fryer that they make their empanadas in— a real treat!

The food was amazing. Almost everything is gluten free and the staff is knowledgeable. We had the mixed grill for 2 and the soufflé for dessert. Sandra and mojitos are also excellent. Nice citrus and pineapple notes add to a traditional mojito.

The food was good, and it may be gluten free - but the service was very poor. Be warned: they automatically add gratuity to your check, too.

GF food is clearly marked and the food is great! I tried this place after returning from Miami and craving empanadas. Now I order once a week- I highly recommend chicken empanadas!

This place was really fantastic for us. Seating is a smidge tight, but service was very friendly and pretty quick. And almost EVERYTHING is gluten free naturally .. awesome. The empanadas were great, asking with the tostones with guacamole were delicious (mild was hotter than we could really handle... recommend no spice if you aren't a heat lover). They also had gluten free desserts... Will definitely be back.

As noted by others, the empanadas are really good, especially the chicken empanadas. The stuffed peppers are amazing, with lots of flavor. The red beans and rice are excellent as well. I'd say over 90% of the menu is GF, including nearly all of the Colombian food. Burgers and sandwiches (both not GF) are available for those tagging along with you and want something a bit more American.

This meal just fixed my day. Nice warm soup, fluffy rice and attentive staff, makes all this snow so much more bearable! It's so celiac friendly they mark the few items that actually CONTAIN gluten, which makes a nice change!! Highly recommend.

This lovely little place has yummy empanadas & pandebonos among their GF specialties. Gives the feel of a Spanish diner, eat in or take out. GF is not always marked, so ask the knowledgable staff. Try a few dessert options! Worth the trip!
