First time eating deep fried cheese curds in 5 years! Many gf items with a dedicated fryer. I would definitely go back in a heartbeat!
First time eating cheese curds in years. Also had fish and chips. Good fries.
Phenomenal food and wine selection. Chef was extremely aware and sensitive to cross-contamination, not serving quinoa with the (delicious) Tandoori salmon. Highly recommend.
Had a dedicated frier. wonderful knowledgeable staff.
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!
Incredible experience. Cheese curds were delicious and the pasta was on point!
nice restaurant. didn't have an issue with gluten.
GF marked on menu. Started off with the GF cheese Curds. Then GF Fish n Chips. Both were amazing.
Hands down amazing service, amazing food.
This place is AWESOME!!! The atmosphere was great, our server was wonderful and understanding, and the food was delicious! For the first time since my celiac diagnosis, I didn't have to worry about eating out because the menu was clear and the staff was informed. What a wonderful experience! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!
Good food. Understanding staff. Not a ton of options, but enough.
Delicious, delicious, delicious. Our party of four all ate gluten free and it was wonderful food, a fabulous atmosphere and outstanding service! I'm definitely going back again.
Amazing gluten free options and outstanding service!
Informed by the chef that this restaurant does NOT have a dedicated fryer due to space restrictions. Salad came with bread on the plate. Waiter was not knowledgable of celiac.
Absolutely wonderful! Everything clearly marked. The fish and chips here are breaded and naturally gluten free!
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!
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!
