As much as I used to love this restaurant before I knew I need to eat GF, they do not care about GF at all. And chips are cross contaminated. A waiter told me as I was eating them. Go for drinks only.

One waiter said the tortilla chips were GF and my daughter ate some and then we found out the they weren’t. They are fried in same fryer as flour tortillas! They seemed to be confused as to what was GF. Wouldn’t come here again.

Very limited options. Waiter says they routinely contaminate the “ dedicated” fryer. Had limited knowledge of the menu. Was not willing to ask the chef questions. We should have just left but I didn’t want my daughter to feel bad (she’s the one with Celiac). Disappointing.

Very little selection. I went for dinner and they said that essentially nothing was gluten free but that they could make me some special enchiladas. Then another woman in our party requested gluten free and he said the same but he could make her fish tacos. What? Disappointed with how it was handled.

Gorgeous restaurant, excellent service, I got the shrimp enchiladas and they were delicious. Our waiter Joaquin was perfection and very knowledgeable about gluten free options. I have celiacs and had zero negative reactions to the food. The restroom attendant Marta was delightful. Can’t wait to return here!!

I have eaten here several times. I’ve always been very clear about my needs and I’ve had good luck. Steak salad is my go-to.

Great food and experience! I was told by our waiter that most menu items are GF besides the quesadillas (the flour tortillas are heated on a separate grill) and a couple of other items. Be sure to let your waiter know that you have a “gluten allergy” and they will be sure to take extra precaution.

Ate here last night. Server seemed knowledgeable and we ordered 2 beef tacos. They came out with gluten and we where later told they where fried in a mixed fryer. They remade it and it still tested highly for gluten - we have a Nima. My son ended up getting in and out on the way home. Definitely not celiac safe.
