Staff seemed really knowledgeable and really took their time to walk me through everything on their menu to see what was gf and what wasn’t. The cold messes are prepared in the kitchen where the pita is also made, so I decided to opt out of that. But on the other side of the kitchen there wasn’t, I went for the grilled Branzino with chickpeas and Lebanese veggies, which they would prepare separately and not directly on the grill. Our server specifically put the sous chef on my meal and after ordering immediate went to inform them about everything. It made me feel safe and accommodated, the food was absolutely delicious. However, I did get sick. I’m thinking maybe the chickpeas weren’t from a gf source and could have been cross contacted with gluten pre-restaurant. Very bumped.

Almost too yummy! No separate menu, but the staff was extremely knowledgeable of what on the menu could be prepared as gluten free. Our waiter was fabulous and suggested that the chef prepare the falafel in a different pan, since it typically is fried in shared oil. He also offered a veggie plate to go along with my hummus, which included lettuce to make wraps. I felt extra accommodated!
