Wilde is the best restaurant for gluten free in all of Chicago! I never stray from their gluten free artichoke dip (with GF toast) and their mac ‘n cheese. But the menu is HUGE! There are flat breads, burgers, sandwiches, and more. The “ultimate grilled cheese” has cheese on both the outside and inside of the sandwich. I’ve eaten here and at their sister restaurant, Lady Gregory’s, many many times and never once gotten sick. Definitely safe for celiacs! I also love that they put American flags in gluten free food for extra safety and awareness.
We live in the neighborhood and have eaten here with our two celiac daughters dozens of times without issue and they are extremely sensitive to cross contamination. The restaurant has an extensive GF menu for brunch/lunch and dinner. Your order is always delivered with American Flags indicating it is GF.
Very large GF menu but no dedicated fryer so fries, chips, etc. are off limits for celiacs. However, staff was very helpful and our GF meals were marked with American flags so we knew they came out as GF. Nice to have a place that offers appetizers thru dessert in a fun atmosphere. Delicious brunch, too!
This is one of my favorite restaurants in Andersonville. They have a huge gluten free menu. Their burgers are great. Good gluten free beer. Their servers are even knowledgeable about what cocktails are gluten free. I have never been sick after eating here. Great place for kids too!
Was there last weekend and I had a horrible experience with the server. When I had mentioned that I was sensitive to gluten he had a very negative attitude towards me. As a person with celiac you know that when you go out to eat you are taking a risk. However when I explained my situation and asked for extra care (wash hands/clean surfaces) instead of saying he would let the kitchen know he told me it's not a separate kitchen and my food will be the same. I had been there before and had no problems so I figured he was just having a bad day and let the attitude go. We finished our meals with no problems and my friends and I got up to use the restroom and leave. I was waiting behind a post and the server did not see me standing there and he thought I had left. He began to talk about me to another tAble. He said many negative things about people who order gf, and how "real" celiac's don't eat out at restaurants. He talked about how he could not believe I had the nerve to ask them to wash their hands/ take extra precautions and how I was ridiculous. I stood there humiliated and when he finally looked up and realized I was standing there he walked over and attempted to apologize. My only response was shock and I told him that was rude. As a person with cealic disease in know how hard it can be to find restaurants you feel comfortable eating at, and I would hate for someone else to be humiliated for something that is not a choice.
Their gluten free menu is robust and full of delicious options like their Mac and Cheese, which is to die for. But best of all, they bring out gf meals with a little american flag on top--it's simultaneously celebratory and reassuring to know you're meal didn't get mixed up in the kitchen. (especially since everything is so yummy you're liable to second guess whether it really is gf). In pretty sensitive, and I've never been glutened here.
Great place! Love the food, and the precautions they take are just fabulous. Marina in particular is great. The food is fabulous. Love it. Have something different every time I go. I highly recommend the flatbreads and the white bean soup. The flag system is greatly appreciated to identify gluten free food. And the staff is great - we went on St. Patrick's Day and the chef came out to clear their special menu with us.
I am a regular and absolutely love this place! They have great gluten-free breads including flatbreads that rival wheat breads. They also buy local and organic whenever possible. They have staff that is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. For the most GF server, be sure to request Marianne. Not mentioned in the description, but they do have a dedicated space for GF preparation and dedicated friers to prevent cross contamination. Chef Henri is always cooking up some different. BTW the GF selection is huge and they have fillet minon!
Mediocre. At best. The burger was JUST okay. The bun was burned and stale on the outside, but oddly enough, very soft and fluffy in the center. The meat was dry and COATED in BBQ sauce. So much so that I had to eat it with a knife and fork bc it kept falling apart. The apple slaw on the burger was warm and boring. I'm a believer in the cold should be cold and hot should be hot. I wasn't given any type of beer menu or even asked if I wanted a drink. If you're going to offer a GF menu, I would think you would want to point out and offer any GF beer or alcoholic beverages available. But that was par for the course with waitstaff. I wasn't asked if I needed anything or how my meal was. She just refilled my water and walked off. The soda in my vodka soda was completely flat. Not one bubble to be seen. For a thirty dollar meal I was incredibly disappointed. Beautiful bar. Wonderful potential. Completely average experience. Very sad.
What a wonderful food experience!!! There was not one part of my meal from cheddar artichoke dip, sweet potato fries coated in chili pepper and served with a side of maple syrup, and then to finish off the meal, lobster Mac n cheese. Amazing food!!! The food itself deserves a five star rating for the explosion of flavors I experienced. Service though was only three stars at best. She was good for drinks and appetizers, but then forgot to come back for an hour and a half for our entree order. Guessing someone called off, because she was very flustered. The food was worth the wait though, and outstanding selection of gluten free food choices. Can't wait to go back.
Great place! the menu is very expansive, many GF options, I couldn't decide what i wanted. right away after ordering a Green's beer, our server started talking to me about gluten free options, she seemed excited and very knowledgable about the menu. This place is going on my favorite list!
