Symptomatic Celiac

Overall Rating

Review


While the restaurant is not entirely gluten-free, they are extremely accommodating and a lot of their menu is/can be modified to be gluten-free. There is a shared fryer, but they offered to cook the patatas bravas on a separate clean pan rather than frying to avoid cross-contamination (without me even asking :') ). Chef and staff were incredibly knowledgeable and conscious, even informing me of the decorative ingredients in my cocktail in case I wanted to look it up! 10/10 for a great celiac-safe date night

Menu was not marked but server could identify what could be made GF and also spoke to the chef. We had mushroom risotto and a salmon special with white bean succotash and broccolini. The salmon and broccolini were grilled and the tastiest we’ve ever had anywhere!

Great experience! The menu wasn’t marked but I was able to ask our server about the items I was considering and she asked the chef. I had the short ribs, it was delicious. Would definitely go back.

The staff was incredibly knowledgeable. The chef’s girlfriend has celiac and he is very careful about cross contamination. I could order almost the entire menu!
