    Gluten free menu was fairly limited. The sushi was the best part of the meal. I had the filet and it had a strange after taste. Not sure if it was marinated or not, but was not a fan. Steak was cooked correctly. My wife had the salmon, which was overcooked but thankfully not dried out. Service was spotty. All the staff seemed to be running around but did not see anything being accomplished, just seemed to huddle up in different places. This was our second trip to this restaurant and honestly not sure I will return to it if I come back to Baltimore.

    Gluten free menu is really good. I do think I got cross contaminated, which is partly my fault I shouldn't have eaten where they prep with gluten.

    I tried it twice, asked all the right questions, ordered off the GF menu, and still got cross-contaminated pretty badly both times. I'm not sure how - I ordered the burger (no bun) the first time and a salad the second time, so it's possible that the pans they used or the grilltop are not clean enough. You're probably better off getting sushi or salad with no meat.

    Great place to go in Baltimore for someone with celiac disease or an intolerance. The sushi was fresh, gf soy sauce was great, fresh pickled ginger yummy. We really enjoyed the kona salad too. Dedicated gf menu makes things easy. Would be great if they offered gluten free buns instead of without options. Overall great place. I recommend it.

    Delicious food, wonderful presentation. They have a dedicated GF menu that even includes a dessert! The fish is incredibly fresh. They are well known for their sushi (which I did nothabe), and there are several selections on the GF menu. They have a vegan menu, as well. Felt very safe eating there.

    So happy we came here! Separate GF menu, GF soy sauce (!!!!!!), fantastic sushi (it really worked for me because I am a tuna freak, so I might be a touch biased), and knowledgeable staff (Austen was wonderful and ready to accommodate with some sashimi items that come with premade sauces!). I had the Houston roll, spicy yellowtail roll, and 2pc octopus. Houston roll was so good I split another one with hubby. Hubs had the avocado eggroll (not GF but smelled incredible), yellowtail sashimi w/ jalapeno (not GF, but pretty), and we shared the passion fruit creme brulee (amazeballs). Even the blackberry iced tea was great (actual tea, not tea with blackberry syrup). I am one happy, happy pregnant lady with a tummy full of deliciousness.

    The food was good, service was friendly and knowledgeable to our issue. You just have to ask for the GF menu, as it's a separate sheet. Knowing I could not eat the fries, the waiter offered me a salad. It came with 2 croutons. He offered an apology and to replace the whole salad. As I'm not super sensitive, I just removed them. This will not keep me from eating there again, but I will be sure to ask for no croutons.

    They no longer have a gluten free menu. They do have a few items marked as GF on their new menu, but options are very limited. No longer worth going.

    Has been one of our favorite places to eat but with new menu, had no entrees that were gluten free. The jambalaya that was very spicy , which we normally like, was not eatable.

    They said GF when I called but there were so few options to choose from. Including most of the sushi. Which is what we wanted. No dedicated fryer or space. Very disappointed and frustrating since it took a while to find it. When I called I said I flew into Phoenix and they should have mentioned that they were in a mall inside the food court. We left.

    Kona recently updated their menu offerings and now have less gluten free options - just edamame, one salad option, jambalaya, and a couple sushi options. They are willing to make some of their old sushi options if you ask, but are now more limited than they used to be in what they offer.

    Staff very knowledgeable about gluten free. They were able to modify their poke bowl for me even though it’s not one of the official GF listed items. I had asked for the gluten free soy sauce instead of the sweet sauce it comes with, and they knew to also eliminate the seaweed salad because it had soy sauce in it. Delicious and friendly service.

    There is a separate GF menu ( as well as vegan). It is limited but there were good options. The server wasn’t super educated in why things weren’t GF or if they could be altered to be but was willing to go ask. I ended up with the Chili Lime shrimp salad which was perfect for a lite lunch. Expensive for a salad ($15) but tasty. And I didn’t have any issues with it after. I would like to have more options for the sushi rolls.

    An extensive gluten free menu, and tasty food, to boot! On the flip side of the gf menu are a vegan and vegetarian menu, for those who need it. They don't offer gf buns for burgers, so it's the meat on a leaf of lettuce, but it's presented nicely. The server was helpful and knowledgeable. Great experience!

    I sat at the bar and told the bartender I have Celiac's. He explained to me that because they are a from scratch restaurant a lot of the recipes could be modified to make a special dish for me. The gluten free menu already had a lot of great options. He went back to the kitchen to assure that cutting boards, knifes, and gloves were changed out and brought me gluten free Tamari sauce for my sushi. It was really great to not have to ask for this level of service. He understood my situation and knew exactly what to do. A+++

    The service and food is well below average. They are also not very service dog friendly. All 3 times I have been in there they want to put us in out of the way areas. That's not acceptable. They also seem to think it's acceptable to allow families with children to run around the restaurant. (Put people with service dogs in the back corner but allow children to run rampant - not acceptable) I won't be back. The food isn't that good.
