    Prior to Celiac, this was a favorite of my entire family. Warm people greet you throughout the entire restaurant. There new menu is marked with GF warnings and a asterisk system. I was pretty confident that they were going to be safe after I explained to the server that I would become ill after consuming items with GF or that were noted with an asterisk. The communication between my server and I was difficult though, as English is not his native language. He returned from the kitchen and said the chicken riganatti would be safe if they left the sauce off of the vegetables and potatoes/rice. So I ate with gusto once the delicious meal appeared. Twenty minutes later, I was showing symptoms. This is a great place for people with mild gluten sensitive people, or people without gluten issues altogether. I am still a huge fan of this restaurant, but I can no longer partake of their entrees.

    Maybe gluten friendly but not for celiac. Kabobs are grilled on the same surface as the pita bread. I suffered for two days after eating here!

    I was disappointed in the restaurants knowledge and staff on gluten-free options. I asked about the Chicken Riganati since it had GF on the menu. The manager said it has a little flour in the recipe. Why is it a GF item? Menu has a lot of gluten-free options but after that I was concerned. For example a post said the saganaki was great which is not on the GF menu. Since it's dusted with flour. If you have celiac's I wouldn't recommend this restaurant. I find when restaurants market GF but don't understand the health consequence that is very upsetting.

    Excellent food. GF options are shown on menu. I had the tavern salad with grilled chicken breast and it was really tasty. Server was knowledgable about celiac and assured me of careful preparation to avoid cross-contamination. Here on a business trip and would definitely come back.

    Very good food, most being grilled lamb, chicken, fish, and veggies. Excellent Lamb chops. Very reasonable wine list. And great music. Oh, and very large GF menu.
