    OMG finally empanadas that I can eat! Tasty sauces for them as well. Good wine selection too, I was very happy! I will tell you there's a chance for cross-contamination with the empanadas. They had a really fantastic grilled meat combo platter. I really enjoy their wines especially the Malbec which paired well with the South American Meat dishes. This place is very small and often very crowded. You're most likely to need a reservation after 5 and parking will be challenging then too.

    I have eaten here several times and it is great. It is Latin American food which lends itself to be gluten free naturally, but it is sooo good. I would highly recommend and they are great with gluten free options and very knowledgeable—I am celiac and will go back again and again.

    came here to celebrate a birthday...our daughter has celiac...she had a perfectly cooked steak with rice and yucca bread which was out of this world. What a relief to find a great meal so close to home and no cross contamination.

    Delicious, fresh food. Many menu items are naturally gluten free and servers have always been happy to check with the chef to confirm GF status. Speaking of the chef, he's very friendly and has come out to our table both times I've been there to make sure everything was O.K. and to answer specific questions. A tad bit pricy but worth the occasional splurge. I'd eat there once a month if I could!

    About 85% of the menu is gf. The waiter will walk you through it. They feature foods from South America. It is a small casual room. They have small plates and large plates. The food is delicious.
