Items are marked on the menu that are gluten free or that can be modified to be gluten free. Huge portions!! I enjoyed the Notch fried rice.

Nice decor and upscale vibe. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and asked if I had celiac or a gluten allergy. I had the Chicken Pad Thai and it was so delicious! I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Called and asked about practices - they handwash their pans (they are never dishwashed) most likely using a sponge that has already been used to clean pans containing gluten. So if you are a very sensistive celiac, it may be best to skip this restaurant.

The waitress was so nice and knowledgeable about not only gluten, but my other fish allergy. She said they take celiacs very seriously in the kitchen (I’m not celiacs) but nice to know for those with celiacs. Food was amazing and there were so many GF options. Portion sizes were large and you definitely get what you pay for. Their chicken wings are probably the best I’ve had since going gluten free. Will definitely be back!

The food was delicious. Many items are marked that they can be made gluten free, but they may not be celiac safe due to the presence of a shared fryer. However, the staff was very knowledgable about celiac as well as the ingredients in each dish, so definitely ask for guidance and let them know they need to take extra precautions to keep you safe. I ordered the bibimbap and berry mango basil bubble tea and both were very tasty.

We had an absolutely delicious dinner here! I do not get to enjoy Asian food often because of the soy sauce issue so it was a treat to have food that I knew was safe to eat! Our waitress was very knowledgeable and helped me chose an entree that I would enjoy. Everything was phenomenal!

Fantastic service and food was excellent. Entire staff seemed very knowledgeable about Celiac. I don’t eat out much as the risk for cross contamination is high, but I felt very comfortable here and will certainly go back.

NOT all items marked on the menu as "gluten free" can be made celiac safe! I found this out by discussing my needs with the server/chef. They were very knowledgeable and helpful, but if you have celiac don't just order from the gluten free menu items and assume it's fine. Food was very good, but only had a couple of options.

The food and staff were amazing. I have celiac disease so eating out can be stressful. I was excited to try Notch because I never had any problems at White Orchid, which is one of my favorite restaurants. Notch did not disappoint and took my gluten free request just as seriously. I also loved the variety of gluten free options and the specialty cocktails.

Great food, been here twice now and felt great after each meal. The staff are very knowledgeable about what items are safe/are not. They'll ask about appetizers or other shared items being gf also. Very accommodating, lots of choices on the menu. Highly recommend you try it!

They have a great selection of gluten friendly options! Their options are clearly marked on the menu and the staff will ask if it is an intolerance or more severe, like celiac (mine is an intolerance).

Their cocktails and bartenders are AWESOME!!! You must have the umami old-fashioned!!!

The menu has all gluten free items noted with a symbol that makes gluten free eating easy to navigate. The chef uses tamari instead of soy sauce to make all Asian dishes gluten free! The staff is very helpful with answering questions.
