    They were amazing! Manager brought a gluten free menu without being asked and explained how the whole process works. I was so excited to be able to eat without any fear!

    Perfect! Manager came to our table explaining how they deal with GF for Celiacs, all the personnel was prepared and knowledgeable. And it was delicious, tasty and abundant!

    The staff was AMAZING—a manager, Marcelle, was able to help me customize everything for all of my allergies/intolerances (celiac, dairy free, no nightshades—which is unheard of in a Mexican restaurant!) and my server was incredibly helpful as well! A must try :)

    Fantastic care for their GF customers and large portions with many options for GF. Staff were incredibly friendly. Food was good, but not best I've ever had.

    They have a dedicated celiac menu!! The manager, Marsala, came over to offer even more GF options. The waiter, Gabriel, made sure the seasoning was GF, even made sure I was okay with dairy. The service was impeccable, I was hugely impressed by this place, if I lived here I would go there every week. The guac was super fresh and great, they don’t have a dedicated frier, but they offered to grill soft corn tortillas and make them crispy. I had the fish tacos, they were great.

    Extremely knowledgeable staff. Actually best I’ve ever had in regards to knowing what is gluten/celiac safe and how to prepare. I have soy and dairy as well and they were great with that as well. Felt fine after and food was delicious.

    The staff was very friendly. Worst food I ever had. Rice was terrible,black beans even worse fish tacos were blah ,I had to ask for salt and pepper. Hopefully, it’s a new chef and they are learnings if not I recommend new chef.

    I’m celiac. No issues at all. The manager came out and explained everything. A separate gf menu. Great food. Guacamole with grilled corn chips was super.

    Staff was very knowledgeable and communicated how they tracked my food in the kitchen. They have a separate menu for GF. Be sure to tell them when you order though so they can take proper care of your food. I had the carnitas tacos. They were quite good, traditional Mexican style. The chips and guacamole were great too. Loved the red sangria too!

    Outside of eating at a GF restaurant, this is the best care you will receive. Not only was the food excellent but they make sure that the chances of cross contamination are next to nothing. My cocktail was even returned when I realized the vodka wasn’t a GF brand and the bartender made sure it was remade with Tito’s.

    They take such great care of their GF customers! We basically had two waiters: our waiter and the manager who often came to check on me and explain the GF options. They have a separate GF menu and cook GF items separately. Cannot have regular chips but they will grill corn tortillas for you. Did not get sick. Not used to being able to eat at Mexican restaurants so this was a real treat. Some restaurants make you feel guilty about being GF but this is the opposite!

    I decided from all the great reviews that this would be a safe place to eat at, even as a super sensitive celiac, and I was NOT disappointed!! We stopped by to grab take-out before hopping a train back to LA, and just by asking for a gluten-free menu from the hostess, the waitress was alerted, and even the manager (or owner?) came out to discuss my level of sensitivity and what would be safe for me. INCREDIBLE service, and I am so grateful for their help. I had the grilled fish tacos off the GF menu and had absolutely no reactions. Absolutely a gem for Celiacs!

    This restaurant is great if you are looking for somewhere to eat that is celiac friendly. I have celiac's disease and am always looking for new accommodating restaurants. I tried this place out with my friend who also eats gluten free and we loved it! We had a great experience here. They were extremely friendly. I asked the hostess if there were any gluten free options and she immediately brought me a separate gluten free menu. We were even greeted by the owner! This made my experience so much easier because I didn't have to modify anything. I come to eat here all the time now and am always showing this place to my friends. I would highly recommend for anybody with a gluten intolerance, celiac's disease, or anybody just looking for a great Mexican restaurant to eat at!

    I brought my mom to this restaurant because a friend told me they had good celiac/ gluten free options. I was blown away by this restaurant. When I told my server, Alex, that my mom had celiac disease he told me was going to bring us a new menu. The manager came and presented this menu to us, which was very awesome. We ordered guacamole and fish tacos and they were both very fresh and amazing tasting. Overall pleased with this restaurant and will come back next time in San Diego, highly reccomend.

    Very impressed by how attentive the staff is in making sure no cross contamination occurs. The manager even came by to explain they have separate cooking surfaces for corn tortillas but no separate fryers. The best tacos and amazing service!

    They were very knowledgeable about Celiac disease and immediately sent over a manager who helped prepare my food. Unfortunately, the Nima showed that there was gluten in my chicken tacos. They were understanding and gave me white rice instead.

    Matt was very friendly and knowledgeable about gluten intolerance. He knew which tequilas were gluten free as well as which entrees were safe for me to eat. Alan, the CEO, came to the table and reassured me the fish tacos I ordered would be prepared without contamination. The food was delicious! The Jalapeno margaritas were the best I've had (and I've had a few!). I look forward to my next visit to Las Hadas Bar and Grill.

    The food at Las Hadas is delish and the service and accommodation was extraordinary! I asked for info on gluten free options and our server asked about my specific restrictions so they could ensure a safe meal. He advised on celiac safe options and provide separate chips and salsa for me. This was a stress free, amazing dining experience where I felt understood and respected. Thank you to our server, Andrew, and all those behind the scenes for a wonderful evening!

    Amazing. Hands down the best restaurant I’ve ever been to for celiac. I have been to places across the country and the world and this place was amazing. The manager talked to me and then they accidentally cross contaminated my tacos and told me it would be a minute because they started me a fresh plate on a new pan with manager supervision.

    If I could give more than 5 stars I would- the food was excellent and the waiter got the manager right away to discuss my needs. The staff was so friendly! A great experience all around.

    I can't say enough great things about this place! Our server was super attentive and accommodating ... they even grilled me corn tortillas on a separate grill for my guacamole. Server talked to the manager and kitchen to make sure everything was safe and with no cross contamination. Food was great and tasty too!

    Amazing and amazing. Matt, who helped us, and Alan, the manager, took such amazing care of us. They knew exactly how to prep the food and what I could and could not have for celiacs. Definitely recommend this place.

    This was one of the best experiences I've had at a restaurant in dealing with my celiac. First they sent over their manager Marcelle who went through the menu with us , explaining the options, then the owner Allen came to the table to assure me once again that my order would be prepared appropriately. He even offered fresh made gluten free "chips" since they do not have a dedicated fryer. The meal was delicious! While I was there someone else came in with celiac and received the same great sevice, I was glad to see that was their standard! I will be back!

    The owner and the chef personally came to me and assured me that there would be no cross contamination. They both thoroughly explained their kitchen set-up and which meals they could easily make for me. I had a lot of options! They told me that they often deal with many food allergies and are more than happy to accommodate for EVERYONE!!
