Cannot say enough good things about Odd Duck! This is our favorite place to go for celebrations, birthdays, etc. Their menu is locally sourced and changes a lot, but the waitstaff is so knowledgeable and they will cross out everything on the menu and note alterations to either make it safe for gluten intolerant or if you’re Celiac, they ensure no cross contamination. The food is absolutely delicious as are the cocktails! We eat here a few times a year—I have celiac disease—and have never gotten sick. The ceviche and Waygu beef is especially delicious!!

I had a very traumatic experience here.

I have celiac, had the waiter hand-edit a celiac-safe menu for me and talk through each dish/preparation in the kitchen. I did everything right.

AFTER eating the first dish I was told it was cross-contaminated. I RAN through the restaurant to the bathroom in tears, to to make myself throw up to avoid getting sick later.

I’m so devastated that somewhere who told me they were “celiac safe” did that to me.

DO NOT COME HERE if you have celiac disease.

Odd Duck is phenomenal. There is no indication on the menu of what’s gluten free and what’s not but the staff is super knowledgeable. My waitress had a good idea but took a menu back to the kitchen to have the chef mark the menu to be certain. Most things could be changed to be gluten free! It is a tapas style place so my experience with these places and GF is it’s more scary with a big group (not knowing which plates are which). Going with just my fiancé it was very easy to order all GF modifications and then his 1 dish that had gluten was easy to avoid. I felt safe eating here, the food was great, the service was great, and the atmosphere was very unique and cool! I will be back!

Sample menu from November 2021 showing what is celiac safe. They underlined potato chips because shared fryer, so they brought those out on a separate plate for my partner to eat since he isn’t Gf

Odd ducks menu changes frequently but the staff can always direct how to modify items and they can mark what items are gluten free. The food is delicious typically American but with a culinary up twist. Delicious.

This is in general one of the scariest ways for me to eat... multiple courses coming out at different times, in a big group of people where everyone is getting a couple of bites from each dish. So I was apprehensive at best going into the situation.

Our sever was very knowledgeable and made me feel confident in ordering. My group decided to order off the gf menu except for bread, which was lovely of them. One thing that was slightly confusing was that a few items were more geared to gluten-sensitive people instead of celiac. So we asked for a few things on the side and were assured that would mean a separate plate for those items... sometimes it happened that way and sometimes it didn't. Our server was really good but it seemed to be a busy night and occasionally someone else would bring things out -- that was where things went wrong. That's why I took away the star.

I didn’t especially enjoy the food here, but they were very accommodating and helpful with my celiac and pescaterianism. My girlfriend loves this place though! No reaction whatsoever in terms of gluten. :)

Great food, friendly staff. Willing and able to make adjustments for allergy vs. Intolerance but there were several things on gluten free menu that we could not eat. Still, many choices and the food is amazing.

If you make it clear that it will make you sick they are accommodating. They have an allergy menu. Shared fryer

I'm intolerant (not celiac) and so have some wiggle room. I found this restaurant to be accommodating and to have many delicious gf options. Menu seasonal and always changing. One of my favorites.

what a terrible idea. they call their GF menu the "celiac menu" but don't have dedicated space and use shared pans. no way I'd eat here, and I'm furious.
