I used to love this place and eat here all the time. My favorite dish was the shrimp paella. They changed the recipe somehow and although I confirmed with the waiter and the food runner that it was still gluten free, I didn’t even leave the restaurant before becoming violently ill. The dish used to have a delicious fresh pico de gallo, and they substituted it with an over spiced purée sauce. I haven’t been that sick in a long time. Maybe fine if you are not celiac, but celiacs beware.
Although the menu has a variety of gf and gf options available, I had the worst experience of my life. I ordered the tortilla soup, which said it was gluten free. I have never been to this restaurant, so I asked if the queso was gluten free that came with the soup. The waitress said yes. After my friends and I all ordered, the chips and dip came out. I then asked if the “queso” dip with the chips was gluten free and to please double check with the manager. I got the ok it was safe and I dug in. I really enjoyed every bite and the soup was delicious, until later when my stomach began to hurt. I literally have never been so sick in my life. My body was rejecting everything and the amount of pain that I was in, and still in, is excruciating. The next day I called the restaurant to try and investigate what could have happened and shocked to hear that the dip that was with the chips is NOT gf. It’s not even queso, it’s something else that is actually made with bread!!!! I don’t believe anyone was at fault, maybe a miscommunication, and maybe not knowing the menu well enough, is what happened. Just be careful.
This was one of the best restaurant meals we have had out with our celiac son. The staff was very knowledgeable about celiac and virtually everything on the menu can be done gluten free. We asked that our entire table of 9 be made safe for celiac so our son could share everything, and they didn’t blink an eye. Food was delicious and he felt very safe. Two days later no reaction. We will definitely be back!
Amazing! Celiac friendly and they totally get it. They made all plates GF free and confirmed celiac friendly. Food was awesome!
Great food and seem to understand celiac disease and the need to avoid cross contamination. Even listed in Schärs app as a safe place to eat with celiac
Amazing food! They are very accommodating - lots of gluten and dairy options for me. Good service too! I'll be back next time I'm in town.
Small plates. Food was above average. Lots of GF options but none on the kids menu. Great atmosphere. Service was fantastic!
Wonderful food and cute little place tucked away. Service was terrible, otherwise I would have rated it higher. Very different selection in food but all clearly marked on the menu for gluten free and vegan options.
Super tasty, great service, and fun atmosphere. Best restaurant in SLO!
Disappointing. While the menu has gluten free options, the menu is small and the food was only so-so. The pork was undercooked and bloody, the kids dish was discolored from the pan it was served in (try feeding a child dark gray mac!) and 3 meals were over $100. Boo.
Best trout I have ever had! Their lunch menu is great. I have celiac and I'm really sensitive to gluten and I've had no issues the 3 times I've eaten here
Excellent menu with GF options well marked, knowledgeable wait staff and awesome food! Food coma indeed..
Well labelled menu with a huge variety of gluten free options. We love the bacon wrapped dates!
Stopped here on our way through town, and it turned out to be a great lunch spot! We shared a few items, which were all clearly labeled GF on the menu. The bacon wrapped chorizo-stuffed dates were delicious, as were the goat cheese stuffed piquillo peppers, quinoa burger, and black bean + avocado fritters. Our server was fine, she seemed a bit more interested in chatting with her friends in another corner of the patio, but a few other employees stopped by quite often to refill water, etc.
stopped on the drive south...this place was awesome! the menu has a clear gluten free or gluten free option. delicious prosciutto wrapped dates..cheeses tapas. ahhhh food coma :)
Delicious lunch and well trained staff. They have dedicated oil for the gluten free appetizers and the menu makes it very clear which dishes are gluten free or have a gluten free option. The burgers and sandwiches are lettuce-wrapped. Lunch time was busy and service was a bit slow, but was worth the wait.
Sensitive celiac here.
No reaction! Yay! They are very accomodating. Plus, the food here is spectacular! I definitely recommend the creme brulee. It is craving-inducing.
The only bummer is that there are no options besides bread as a appetizer.
Amazing food and service! Vegan options also.
