Best gluten free place in all of the Des Moines area!!!
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.
I stopped at 2pm on. Friday 11/10/2017. Their door was locked. The sign says they're open from 11am until 11pm. I assume they have closed?
All options easily marked on menu. Staff were super helpful and knowledgeable. Cute spot, love music, amazing fish and chips.
The cheese curds are a must have, and the wine list was extensive.
This is our go-to spot in the neighborhood! Safe for me & my son (celiac) and my daughter (NCGS)
I love the fish and chips!! Great service, delicious food and comfy atmosphere. I've never had a problem there and I am very sensitive to gluten.
Excellent GF fish & chips. Been a long time since I have found a place that served GF fish & chips. Very accommodating. Server asked if GF was a preference or an allergy.
You can have cheese curds again! This place never disappoints. They have a great selection for all of us gluten free, it's always hard to choose!
I have Celiac. Food is great and so is the staff. I never react.
amazing...very safe...cheese curds awesome and the bacon jam is to die for...
Awesome place! Very GF knowledgeable and helpful, very worth the stop!
Very knowledgeable and considerate. All but a few items can be made gluten free. Owner told us that the fryers are dedicated gluten free and their fries were amazing!
Almost everything can be made gluten free. Amazing pasta and salads!
They had knowledgable staff and both dairy free and gluten free options right on the regular menu! No special menu needed. I felt normal, not weird!
I believe this is a restaurant you could feel confidant going to and it be gluten free. Although I wasn't overly thrilled with the restaurant, I felt safe eating there. Rice flour breaded fish is hard to pass up for celiac friendly public dining.
They are very knowledgable and have many fresh made to order choices! I love the above the average menu items like GF Macaroni and Cheese w/ Lobster. Fish and Chips!!! OMG! So many choices.
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!
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.
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!
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!
Very pricy. Extremely loud. When I mentioned Celiac Disease, our waiter said, "Uh, that's a gluten thing, right?" The potion size was ridiculously small. And our waiter was more concerned with the table next to us who ordered multiple glasses of wine. He literally checked on them 4 times more often than us. I would not go here again.
The Fish and Chips are good. But the staff have no idea what they are doing. I asked for GF and Dairy free. Then asked for salad in exchange for the cream based item (which I paid extra for). It came out covered in bread crumbs and dairy based dressing. When I said this had Gluten and dairy - she looked at me like "well you should have said something." Well I did on the main course.
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!
It was our first time dining at Louie's and the experience was fantastic! Our waitress was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, which is always a plus when you are entirely gluten intolerant. The food was amazing and the number of gluten free appetizers and entree options was plentiful. The only thing I would suggest is to add a second gf dessert option... other than that, we will be frequenting Louie's!
This was really cool place. Their atmosphere was not quite as uppity as I expected (which was very relieving honestly). Their whole menu was labeled GF for gluten free and GF2 for items they could modify to be such. I had a pork chop that was great! But my favorite part of my meal was the patatas bravas potatoes served as a side...incredible!
This is my go to place for GF in KC ever since I discovered that I could have fish and chips again! I have tried other menu items (including mac and cheese omelette after asking repeatedly if it were really GF) and have always really enjoyed the food.
