All of their pasta can be made gluten free. If you tell them you have allergies they put a card on the table so everyone serving you knows. They take every precaution!

I wish EVERY non-dedicated restaurant operated like Hugo’s. This place is so hassle free. GF items (and other dietary restrictions) are marked super clearly on the menu. So many naturally gluten free items (even the cornbread and french toast!!) and almost everything else can be modified to be GF. My sister is vegan and we have a hard time finding restaurants we can both eat at together so Hugo’s is our new go-to. I wish other restaurants would take notes!!!!

Food is not that special, but they made me feel very comfortable -- waitress was very knowledgeable and asked questions of the chef when I needed confirmation of their procedures. Fried pickles!!

I have a zillion food sensitivities and these folks really worked with me and were very cool about it. They also don't seem to over salt their food and drinks (like lattes) don't come sweetened. This is a place we dream of. That said, I didn't end up looking their food much! I thought it was just the one thing I ordered (tacos) but I got the vegan Mac and cheese to go and that just tasted like smoke and the lentil pasta was tough. Granted I have a cold and that affects taste. Still 5 stars because it's really knowledgeable and patient and careful.

Loved Hugo’s! Incredible GF menu. I had hush puppies! not traditional in flavor, but I’ve missed that texture. Delicious entrees. Great GF dessert options. I believe the entire menu had GF or vegan options. 6 out of 5!

The menu is well labeled for multiple dietary needs (GF, Vegan, veg). The food and cocktails were delicious! I’m DF and dessert is usually a no-go for me, but they actually had a few options! We had the sticky buns, which I would describe more as a churro rolled into bun shape and covered in a DF caramel sauce and pecans. There is a small parking lot next door and garage across the street which was also a big perk!

The French toast was amazing don’t get me wrong, but I go SO EXTREMELY sick from eating here!! Was it gluten or food poisoning I don’t know. I also ate the bacon so maybe some kind of cross contamination? Be careful!

5 stars just for the French toast. Menu clearly marks GF items and items that can be altered to be GF. I also had sausage biscuits... They were umm gluten free... Good coffee, pleasant staff. If I lived in this area this would be a regular spot for me

Really nice allergy-friendly place!!! The menu is very clearly marked with what is already gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian, and contains nuts and what can be altered, while still having lots of “normal” options (great for the rest of your family that may not have any allergy specific needs). They have all-day breakfast as well, including pancakes and other normally wheat products that I feel are usually pretty hard to find. I had the spaghetti and meatballs with GF penne. All of their noodles were homemade! I did not think about the cheese on top of the pasta, (I am also dairy-free) but the waitress was very kind and patient, not only offering to have them redo the plate for me but also letting me very kindly know that their turkey meatballs also contained Parmesan cheese, and so offered to swap out with veggieballs for me. The food arrived very quickly, even with my new plate. Everything was delicious and service was great, would definitely come and again and would love to try more of the menu!

Hugo’s was a great place regarding their food and their gluten free options. At first, I wasn’t sure that they were knowledgeable because some things on the menu like rye bread were labeled as gluten free. It turns out that instead of rye bread, they had a gluten free substitute. Their menu is labeled clearly with things that are gluten free and can be made gluten free. Most of the items on the menu were already gluten free. They have a separate fryer, and many of the things they fry are breaded gluten free. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about gluten and celiac and made me feel very comfortable eating. I got the tikka masala chicken, and it was delicious. I even tried some of my family members’ food because it was already gluten free and the waiter told me it was safe to eat it. Loved this place and definitely coming back.

My daughter has Celiac disease & I researched dining options before visiting LA. We were so happy to see the restaurant had so many GF items on their menu. She ordered the Mac and cheese with fries. After 3 bites she started to feel sick. We didn't think to test the food initially due to the reviews & because they make such an effort to protect those with allergies. They put a card on the table to let wait staff know there's an allergy. We tested the Mac and cheese after she felt sick & the machine detected low gluten . We tested the fries & they were GF. I appreciate their effort but there is still work to do. Perhaps cross contamination is the issue.

Arrived at 12:30 on Saturday and the wait was only bout 15 minutes to get a table. Received the drinks rapidly and the ordering was fine. You will need your smartphone to get the menu online. Very well laid out menu with labels for food daily free, gluten free, gluten free modification possible, nut allergy, soy free, vegan and vegetarian. So many gluten free options, about 80% of the menu. Had the burger with bacon and fries without any reaction. It did take about 25 minutes from the order to receiving the food. All tables inside now and well spaced out.

I cannot wait to go again and try something else.
