Staff was lovely. Extremely knowledgeable, made grilled cheese is separate tray, changed gloves to handle it, etc. Have gf fryer for tater tots. Was delicious as well. Would definitely recommend it whether gluten free or not. Based on two visits.

All grilled cheeses and quesadillas can be made gf. As soon as I told the waitress I had celiac she immediately assured me of the methods the kitchen used to insure no cross contamination. Food was delicious and I didn’t feel sick! Highly recommend for both gf and regular eaters.

They are inconsistent with preventing cross contamination. Although the food was amazing I got very sick and had to stop everyone I was with and go home.

Do not go. It isn’t worth the risk!!

I got glutened here even though the employee told me it was gluten free and that they had procedures to stop cross contamination.

This place was cheesy and delicious! You can get basically anything on the menu gluten free (minus the lobster and Mac and cheese). The grilled cheese sandwich was fantastic, the bread stayed together and wasn’t flimsy at all. I ordered the bacon jalapeño popper and it was amazing. The tomato soup was so delicious and the tots were crispy and scrumptious! The wait staff was very knowledgeable and there is even gluten free beer! Totally a must in dc and will be returning.

*edit to add I got sick anyway*

So, the food itself was delicious. Knowledgeable about CC and dedicated fryer for the tots.

But, they charge you an extra $1.50 for literally half the sandwich that my gluten eating friends got. And it's already a $13 grilled cheese in the first place. If you go here skip the sandwich and just go with the loaded tots or something.

Amazing food!! Perfect crispy tater tots. Unusual or more classic grilled cheese depending on your preference. I recommend the fig goat cheese and prosciutto. It was amazing. Staff knew exactly what to do. 3 celiacs did not get sick!!

Great little place! Grilled cheese sandwiches with a twist, a delicious twist. I got the grilled cheese burger - ground beef, pickles, tomato, and LOTS of cheese on gf bread with tator tots. Separate oven. Separate utensils. One employee handled everything. It was awesome. And the sandwiches were HUGE; I couldn't finish all of mine. Definitely loved them! Everything is available gf except the mac 'n' cheese and anything with lobster (since that's breaded). Today, the poutine tots were not gf because of a mix-up with a supplier who sent the wrong soy sauce - but the waitress told us that immediately and without missing a beat.

After all the positive reviews I was so excited to try it out with my two celiac kids. It wasn’t busy when we were there. The staff was very knowledgeable. The food tasted great but unfortunately we all got sick. All three of us who are celiac are experiencing gluten exposure symptoms. We definitely got cross contamination.

This place was excellent! Everything on their menu can be modified for gluten free except the Mac and cheese. They don’t even have a fryer so cc as far as that goes is not a concern. The bread was so good my daughter double checked it was gf! A manager came right over to us and ensured us it was and also offered her some gf mini chocolate cakes free of charge. We were really impressed. Great food in a great location

Good food and a great place for trusted GF meals! Owner and servers are very aware of need for truly GF food and take all precautions to prevent cross-contamination. Most menu items are available as GF, just ask the server. As a bonus, Tuesday evenings are completely GF - all gluten-containing items are removed for the evening. It’s a very popular spot for GF get-togethers. Highly recommended.

Ordered a GF sandwich and tots. Server seemed knowledgeable about cross contamination. My meal was delivered by a different server than took my order. Halfway through, my original server arrived and said I’d been given a non-GF meal by mistake. She ordered me a new meal and sent the second one back when it was also non-GF. The kitchen’s 3rd attempt was correct, but I was already feeling ill by that point. The server and managed were very apologetic and comped by meal but the damage was done. Not sure what’s going on in the kitchen, but can’t recommend them without a clearer system to track allergy meals.

This place was incredible. Had the the chicken parm grilled cheese, and my boyfriend had the lobster grilled cheese (so obviously I tried both). Omg, both were SO. GOOD. I didn't have any Celiac response, but I did go on their "Gluten Free Takeover" night when everything was GF, so I can't speak to their usual ability to avoid cross contamination. That being said, I spoke to a manager who said they frequently have Celiacs in there and obviously they had a whole night just for gluten free people, so I feel comfortable with their ability to serve Celiacs any night, so I'll be going back! So delicious.

GF grilled cheese and a dedicated fryer. Had the poutine tots... omg yum! It was a bit busy. They didn’t cut my sandwich (to decrease cross contamination). Tomato soup is a plus with your grilled cheese sandwich.

I'm Celiac. This was the best grilled cheese. Loved the tots. Service was excellent. My husband is allergic to soy and the servers went out of their way to learn what he could have and when they noticed I was getting something with soy they came back to note that he couldn't have what I was ordering due to the soy. I definitely felt safe and I felt like they were very knowledgeable.

Delicious! Tater tots are GF and all but one sandwich (can't remember which, possibly the lobster) can be made with GF bread. Indoor & outdoor seating. Knocked off a star because, for a seemingly popular place, there really isn't a waiting area.
