Delicious food & great service! I had the French toast breakfast and it was so delicious that I returned that evening to try dinner. Everything is delicious and I did not get sick. I have Celiac & a milk allergy. I returned for dinner every evening while vacationing in L.A. The sticky buns are out of this world!
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!
Wow this place is amazing for coeliacs and other allergies!! Kids had coeliac safe fries and burgers for dinner and coeliac safe and dairy free pancakes for breakfast. All staff knowledgeable about coeliac, dairy and other allergies. Can’t recommend this place high enough!!!
Knowledgeable, caring, and friendly staff. My non GF friends were very happy with their food, as was my vegan friend. We shared starters and the restaurant were able to accommodate both the GF and vegan diets at the same time. Separate fryers are used.
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.
We ate a few things: turkey burger with gluten free rye bread, fries, Mac and cheese (non vegan version), and the Dutch baby pancake special (OMG I hope they put this on the full time menu). It was all incredible. I would drive out of my way to eat here again. Zero cross contamination. Very educated staff. Recommend.
Good food!! The menu can be a little adventurous for my taste so i just suggest to choose carefully when you order. For example I ordered the 'Go Green' frittata and it was VERY green. My fault bc it came as described. The staff is friendly and very patient when asking questions. They have an allergy chart you can ask for. If you see something you like on the menu, you can just cross reference it. And you can choose from indoor or outdoor seating. Ate there 3 times and my Celiac girlfriend did not get sick. Great coffee!! Try it!
This place is great, not just the food, but also the service! Gluten-free (as well as vegan and vegetarian) menu items are clearly marked. The staff appeared to be knowledgeable, and I (a celiac) felt safe eating here. The portions were very large and the food delicious. I recommend the Mac and Cheese, Tiramisu, and Brownie Torte.
This place is super celiac friendly as long as you know what you are ordering. Let them know your specific allergies. Be aware that they do not have a dedicated fryer so anything fried is not safe.
Amazing! Almost everything is gf or can be made gf. I had a gluten free vegan Reuben with tomato bisque soup. The gf rye bread was the best bread I've had in the 17 years since my Celiac diagnosis. I asked where they got it and the server said the chef bakes it in house. Seriously one of my best eating experiences since going GF.
I have been cross-contaminated twice and ended up so sick after making it very clear to the server and staff that I have a medical intolerance. I do not believe this place is safe for those with Celiacs even if they tell you they know what they are doing. Never returning.
It was so satisfying to have real breakfast food on my vacation! We ordered the chocolate chip pancakes and cinnamon bun, which was plenty for 2 people to share. My mom who isn't GF enjoyed the food, and we returned later in the week for more.
Staff were great and we're very informed about coeliac disease. My friend loved his GF chocolate chip pancakes. I had an eggs benedict but they only had GF flat bread which was disappointing. My meal was okay, not amazing.
chicken, club, with bacon on gf.. flatbread. 5 stars!!! I'm going to have the gf rubin on gf rye.... then pancakes, then their berger on gf buns.... then... way to go Hugo's.!!! I'm having their tacos too... and borrito. .... they have lots of HIGH QUALITY menue items
5 stars for the many choices and the safe choices. But like other restaurants that have huge menus- the food tends to be just average. Since there is no specialty, none of it is special. Not rushing to go back, it was fine.
Many great GF options, clearly marked on menu. Staff seems knowledgeable and accommodating. They'll actually put a little marker on your table indicating you're GF. Food is delicious. Been there numerous times with no reactions.
I am not sure why one of the reviewers said that they do not have a gluten free menu. They did! Their menu has so many selections that my family had a hard time deciding what to order. Food was fantastic!
Great find! Thank you gluten free ap! You will be spoilt for choice for gf options here- pasta, hamburgers, breakfast- everything! Highly recommend the Vietnamese spring rolls to start and the ginger lemonade! Our waitress was great. Don't be put off by the exterior of the place- it's great!
This place is Heaven for people with Celiac Disease. I love how thoroughly they treated my disease and made sure the waiters and the cooking staff knew to make sure everything was gluten free. Definitely worth the price. I highly advise anyone to go here if you are in the area...the vegetable casserole was amazing and the sherry vinegarette on the arugula salad made me actually enjoy arugula!
This place is incredible - almost everything can be made GF including the entire kids menu and they try hard at avoiding cross contamination - a good place to take a mixure of gf/gluten eating/veg/meat eating people.
This is my favorite restaurant, hands down! There are so many options for gluten-free, vegan, etc., there is something for everyone. The menu is enormous and they are very knowledgeable about allergies and cross contamination. Highly recommend this place!
The Gluten free flat bread is delicious!! I was pleasantly surprised. FYI, I was expecting it to be disgusting. Great service! I didn't give it 5 stars only because they don't have regular mayo. They have a peppered mayo that I believe is vegan. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great. I will be going back though:)
I eat here once a week at least (and at their other location in West Hollwood for 2+ years). Great food - loads of choice - 1/2 the menu is GF (or can be) & they have a dedicated fryer. Great staff - very knowledgable, celiac aware & never had an issue with cross contamination.
Just wow! What amazing options for someone with Celiac disease, or any food allergies (they really get it) or someone who just wants healthy quality food. Had the turkey meatloaf with mashed potatoes and a vegetable melody, but the most amazing part was their gluten free pumpkin pie. Also you should note that they do not use high fructose corn syrup in their entrees, which is definitely a credit to high quality. The service was amazing and spot on. Never left us wanting for refills on tea or anything and very knowledgeable on entree ingredients. Will definitely go back or recommend.
The staff here was super helpful. Everything GF I've had here has been good. The Menu is massive and there are so many options. Plus it's easy to find what is gluten free (or could be made GF) because its right there on the menu.
Sorry to the reviewer who said he got sick, but I go to Hugo's often (once or more a week) and have NEVER been glutened by them. It's also my go-to place when out-of-town GF people are visiting. Menu is so clearly marked and easy to understand, and the food itself is freshly prepared and really good. And I can't resist their GF Chocolate Mousse with a GF cookie on top! BTW - I'm not Vegan, but if you are they have some great Vegan options and Vegan desserts as well.
