    Lettuce Entertain You restaurants always treat celiacs right, and Ema is no exception. Nearly all of the menu is either GF or easily adaptable...and I nearly cried tears of joy the first time they brought out their house-made GF crackers and beautiful crudité to go with the silky hummus (Pro-tip: get the spicy hummus or mushroom hummus). Grilled octopus is amazing, kefta is tender and flavorful and you may be tempted to lick the tziki out of the bowl. Don’t miss the cocktails - they have a small, expertly crafted menu of drinks, with Great NA cocktails available as well!

    Dedicated GF menu and staff was knowledgeable of gluten. Meals are small plate meals, like tapas. The grilled octopus was recommended by my server and was delicious as were the roasted potatoes. Great for a light meal and if you’re not starving.

    Used my Nima device on all the foods and they were perfect! The falafel and chicken kefta were very good and the crispy potatoes were insane!!!
