Great food enjoyed by Celiacs and non-Celiacs. Felt great after eating there. Dedicated fryer.
Not only fabulously delicious GF food, but also good servers and drink choices! Amazing pineapple nachos, Emily’s salad and GF APPLE COBBLER
Fantastic menu. Have been twice and both servers inspires confidence. The confit chicken wings were incredible. Looking forward to my next visit!
This place is amazing! There are so many GF options! And the good is absolutely delicious! Our server, Amber, has Celiac Disease. She’s extremely knowledgeable! I will definitely be coming back!
Have the champagne fish and chips. 🤤 So good
The fish and chips were amazing! I would also recommend getting the Brussels sprouts!
I loved coming here. So many options!! Best fish and chips I have had, gluten or gluten free! Thought the gf dessert would have been better warm but the entrees were so wonderful
Excellent fish and chips! I’m celiac, didn’t get sick. Had fried calamari and deviled eggs also. Wait staff very knowledgeable and friendly. We’ll go back.
This place has several gf items on their menu and several others that they say can be modified to gf. Everything on the menu is fried with rice flour, so their fryer is safe. I had the fried calamari as an appetizer and it was delicious. Fish and chips were good too. Our waitress was knowledgeable and proactive. She knew not to give me malt vinegar for my fish and chips. I’ll definitely be back.
Awesome fish and chips! So happy to be able to have them-1st time in 12 years🙂
Lovely experience. The GF options on the menu are marked, and my waitress was knowledgeable - she let me know that when me entree was first ready, someone mistakenly put bread on it, so she had them redo the whole thing for me! The food was quite tasty as well!
Calamari was great! The gf fish and chips were pretty good. A little fishy tasting.
Gluten free fish and chips! First time in the 9+ years since my celiac diagnosis that I've been able to order that, and it was fantastic. I also got a side of patatas bravas (very tasty fried potatoes), which are not marked as gluten free on the menu, but they were able to make them in a dedicated fryer. I have dreams about those potatoes; they are one of the best things I've ever eaten!
Must visit for celiacs. So delicious and dedicated fryer.
Gotta go! Had the Calamari breaded with Rice Flour (all items that have breading have Rice Flour) as an appetizer. Lightly crisp coating & tasted very fresh, not rubbery. Hubby ordered fish & chips (naturally GF) since use Rice Flour & dedicated fryer, while I ordered the gnocchi so we could share. I was so excited to have Fish & Chips. My gnocchi was actually just substituted GF noodle, not true gnocchi so little disappointed as we asked bartender waiting on us difference to adjust for GF. Still good, but I would highly recommend the Fish & Chips! We will be back.
Absolutely in Love with Louie's! Amazing to have a fabulous glass of wine and anything I wanted on the menu made dedicated gf! Thank you guys for an amazing experience!!
They have dedicated frier and use rice flour breading. It was so nice to have appetizers and even desert. Will come back soon-really good!
Fabulous you have to try!! Calamari and fish and chips - I'm addicted!
Not just celiac friendly but allergy friendly. My son has celiac disease and a peanut allergy and upon learning about celiac and his questions revealed a knowledge of cross contact and the difference between peanut and tree nut allergies. Wow!! Food was delicious. How often can someone with celiac enjoy fish & chips? Great choices.
Lots of GF choices on the menu, and ones that celiacs don't usually get. The food is excellent. Great flavors and textures that are very unique. This chef can really cook! The calamari and dipping sauce appetizer was amazing, and the fish and chips were a rare treat for those on a GF diet (GF fryer here, of course). I also really enjoyed the dessert. If you get the apple crisp, be sure to mix the whipped cream with the apple crisp in every bite; they complement each other perfectly.
Louie’s has a true understanding of celiac disease. So many restaurant owners just don’t get it nor do they understand about cross-contamination, etc!! This is one of the few places we can trust in Iowa City! Excellent food & great wine too! Staff is very educated about celiac disease!!!
So happy we found this place. Stopped by at 1030 on a Friday night (they stop serving dinner at 11). Even though we came late the staff was very friendly and the food came out fresh and piping hot. Many options to choose from and they are clearly labeled on the menu. I got the fish and chips and it was AMAZING. They have a dedicated fryer and all items are battered in rice flour. Can't wait to come back and try the other selections
I go the this restaurant at least twice a month!! They have so many unique gluten free options that are so hard to find anywhere else, such as the fish and chips- which are amazing- and cheese curds (these do not always appear on the menu due to the seasonal changes but just ask the waiter for them and they will make them for you). I have never had a bad experience here, the staff is awesome!!
Staff very knowledgeable and happy to serve gluten free patrons. I was super excited to have fish and chip!! Dedicated fryers yes I said fryers. More than one!!! I had beignets for desert. Omg you must go to this place!! I wish I lived close by but definitely an oasis for my travel day.
Louie’s is a great new addition to Liberty! Great wine selection, delicious food, knowledgeable staff, and a fun outdoor patio area. Their gluten free selections and ability to modify menu items to be gluten free is great too. The Squeaky Cheese is amazing—GF deep fried cheese, yes please! We also had the pleasure of meeting the proprietor and discussing wines we tried in our Sauvignon wine flight. Super cool place that will definitely be a new staple in our repertoire of dining/mommy’s night out choices!
I am celiac and ate here and the food was the best I've had during my time in Iowa. I didn't worry about getting "glutened" and was totally fine after eating with no reaction or even a rash so they were amazing handling celiac. I had rabbit with red beet risotto and my boyfriend and I couldn't get enough of the pecan brussels sprouts. Coming from Boston, I hadn't come across any restaurant in Iowa that could compare to some of the food from back home but Louie's Wine Dive topped the list for any restaurant I've ever eaten at. I would highly recommend and will definitely come again!
I liked it enough. I got the chips and guacamole which was great and beautifully plated. For main course I tried the fish and chips. I got 3 strips of fish with a tiny bed of fries in a small bowl. After all that and 2 glasses of wine I was still hungry. For $44 I want to be full. Seemed celiac friendly and the decor was hip.
This is our FAVORITE GF restaurant! All the dishes we have tried have been fantastic with the added bonus of a wide ranging wine selection. Street tacos, fish & chips, and Sinatra burger are all good choices...but you will not be disappointed with other menu items. Staff is wonderful!
This in my opinion is the best, safest restaurant in Des Moines. I also like when I have the option of getting an appetizer, meal, and dessert because having celiac your lucky to just get a gluten free meal. I love the calamari, fish and chips, tacos, poutine, and the flourless chocolate tart.
Clearly marked gluten free options on the menu and knowledgeable staff! Everything I've eaten here has been delicious (but not cheap). Edit: love this place! I have eaten their shrimp, calamari, fish and chips, tacos, deviled eggs, Brussels sprouts and have NEVER felt sick!
80% of the menu is Gluten Free or can be modified to be GF. cool wine bar, foodie atmosphere, descent prices, amazing wine selection and the food is over the top and super satisfyingly. They have a dedicated fryer. First time I had Calamari and Fish and chips (fries) in 5+ years. their tarter sauce is perfect. very friendly staff, very accommodating. Harry was our server, very attentive and knowledgeable. highly recommended to Celiacs and anyone else!
Absolutely amazing! Celiac safe GF champagne fish and chips were so delicious as were the GF cheese curds. The apple salad with grilled chicken was also scrumptious. Great atmosphere and lovely presentation. What a refreshing change of pace! Can't wait to return!
