They have a separate allergen menu, pretty limited. I asked to have the bibimbap w/o the mushrooms like others in the reviews have noted, but the servers kept insisting I couldn’t eat it. Ended up ordering the fish & eggs which were really tasty but more expensive than I would’ve liked.

I noted a gluten allergy when I put my name on the waitlist online, so when I showed up they greeted me and said the waitress would come buy to discuss the menu and options with me. She was super accommodating and helpful. I do wish there was a separate GF menu— it would have made it easier to pick something. I ended up ordering their bibimbap made GF (just taking off the mushrooms that were cooked in soy sauce). It was great! It seemed like they had a variety of GF options available, it was just hard to tell without the menu or markings.

Super understanding of celiac, but there was only a hand full of options and pretty pricey in my opinion. Definetly felt safe though !

Absolutely phenomenal. The restaurant is owned by a Masterchef champion, Leanne Wong and it shows! The staff were very familiar with celiac disease and knew about all the substitutions that were needed to accommodate.

Staff is knowledgeable about Celiac's and gluten allergies, just let them know, and they'll either know what can be made off the menu, or they'll check with the kitchen. Don't forget to buy the kitchen a beer! This place has a very homey and comfortable vibe. FANTASTIC food! Definitely recommend!

Extremely knowledgeable staff and accommodating kitchen. Delicious and creative "local" food that I was assured had been preparedness separately to avoid cross contamination. I had the bimimbop and hubby had the volcano eggs, wish we were going to be here longer to go back and eat again!
