    Had great experiences in past & used to love this restaurant but most recently (may 2017) had horrible experience. Told server I was gluten free several times & received salad that ended up having croutons mixed in only after eating a few bites. I told the server & she asked if I had even ordered gf. She didn't apologize, didn't comp the meal or even send a manager over. When we received the check we didn't tip for this sole reason. Later my credit card statement reflected she had given herself a tip. We emailed the restaurant & have gotten no response. Such a shame when I had such good experiences in past but will not return & others with allergies should not either.

    Delicious food. Extensive GF menu. Waitress was also GF so she helped to ensure my daughter had a safe meal - chips with guacamole and a GF bunless burger with fries. We will definitely recommend and return here.

    Great food and service. Our server had several family members that had celiac disease, so she was extremely knowledgeable.

    Best place I have ever gone as far as labeling and there process for allergy meals. 5 star all a round and tastes good too. If you have a celiac this is your place . I heard about it from a local celiac blogger.

    Great service, knowledgeable staff, large selection, and great food. Any place that has GF sushi rolls is a winner in my book!

    Food was good and the servers were knowledgeable about cross contamination. I was initially concerned when i saw the open kitchen, but all gluten free food is prepared in the back in a separate area. sushi is quite good and they prepare the wasabi in house with no flour as a thickener. service was excellent.

    Very knowledgable about gf and cross contamination. Great service too. Dedicated fryer and even noted "gluten free" for the French Fries when they were brought to the table which made me feel extra safe. Tasty wine list. Not a ton of vegetarian options but still delicious.

    Awesome service! Decently priced. Music and chatter seem loud when walking in, but the atmosphere was really nice and comfortable for a date.

    This place was great! Had realllllly good tacos, but also had a great variety of food! Was a little more expensive, but the service and atmosphere was great for a night out. Our waiter even brought us a complementary dessert because it was out first time there (would normally do the carrot cake that they're known for, but knew I was GF so brought us sorbet). They also had great alternative music playing! Loved this place!

    Extremely knowledgable about cross-contamination, and their fries are prepared in a separate fryer - very important. They also have gf soy sauce for the wonderful sushi. Our server had a lot of recommendations and took me seriously. I thoroughly enjoyed the fish tacos! My husband, who is not gluten free, also enjoyed his meal.

    Amazing chicken nachos! Thin, crispy chips, a ton of toppings, and a big enough portion for 2!

    Went here while visiting Chicago. Great menu and food, conscientious staff. The tacos were inventive and SO tasty! Had fries and felt perfectly fine - they have to do them without their seasoning, so make sure to clarify. Would definitely go back.

    The gluten free menu is very extensive, and the staff was excellent. The pulled chicken nachos were amazing and HUGE! I would have loved to go back and try everything else on the menu!
