GF labeled salad definitely made me sick. avoid.
It's a nice place and the staff try their best to accommodate but NOT SAFE FOR CELIACS.
super good gluten free bread for yummy sandwiches and plenty of salad options. Bustling eatery in a cute location. Recommended if you want to feel like a normal sandwich eater. :)
very disappointed, it is not gluten-free, they share all equipment with gluten containing foods.
One of the most delicious sandwiches I've ever eaten and creative flavorful salads. I ordered the Steak BLT sandwich and the Quinoa Beet salad. Both items were outstanding. I'll come back many times. They have many clearly marked GF items on menu and offer very good GF bread for the sandwiches. If you let them know you have celiac or an allergy, they handle your food with care and make it separately in GF zone.
Leaving a review to lower the rating as this site is supposed to be used to help people find safe restaurants...and this is 100% not one of them. The Mendocino chain is NOT CELIAC SAFE, and is GF only by Los Angeles fad-diet standards. Certainly doesn't deserve a 4-star rating on FMGF...
Their salads are quite good (and actually interesting compared to most sandwich places) and they take special note when I say I have a gluten allergy/celiac. Have eaten here a handful of times, never been sick.
So I had a sandwich on gluten free bread and the bread was toasted and tough. I tried to cut the bread with a plastic fork and it won’t cut the bread. I went inside and asked if someone could cut the sandwich and the answer was no. Apparently no one could go wash a knife. So I’m appreciative that they were trying to be gluten free, thank goodness I have all my teeth. I have five people standing around me trying to figure out how to cut a piece of bread, really! I just said give me the sandwich and I’ll deal with it. No management response and sandwich ultimately was good. However, WTF, I can’t cut your bread or re-do your sandwich.
