    Mateo is a great restaurant, if you're not GF. Unfortunately, their gf options are pretty limited, and the menu is not labeled. One thing I will say: the olive oil and sea salt flan is amazing. Stop by for dessert and a glass of wine, at least.

    I had great gf food and service when I visited. The staff was very helpful.

    The food was decent, but I was unimpressed with the handling of my dietary restrictions. After speaking with the server, I was extremely confused. He rapidly pointed at the items on the menu that were supposedly gluten free. My table ordered a selection of the ones we could remember him mentioning, but at least one had to have gluten, since I had a reaction. I would recommend that the chef develop a gluten free menu, since the servers aren't aware of what is ok.

    I highly disagree with GF Tarheel. Only about 1/4 of the items on the menu were GF, as far as I could tell. When I asked the waiter what was GF, he said "it's pretty self explanatory". Well, I wouldn't have asked if it was. Not even sure I made it out of there unscathed. The place was noisy, crowded, and the food was just not great at all. Needless to say, I won't be going back.

    bowled over by the sheer perfection of this place. really authentic spanish tapas, atmosphere w/ class, top notch wine list, and too too many GF options. you have to ask as they're not marked, but there are olives, nuts, salads, cold meat plates, hot meat dishes, grits, tortilla espanola, and cheese.
