    I've eaten here several times over the past few years and have never gotten sick. I do avoid anything fried (and obviously no pita) and make sure each time that my server is aware that I have both a gluten allergy and dairy intolerance. If you communicate your needs they will take care of you here. Only 4 stars because the options are a bit limited and the humus a touch on the bland side. But they DO have plenty of wine and bellydancing show on weekends so I'll always like this spot. It is superior to its sister location on the seawall for sure.

    I got sick. I accidentally wrote my review on the other location's page. This is the location where I got sick.

    I don't know why this place is rated so highly. Very mediocre Greek food for an expensive price tag. Gluten free menu was a plus but that's about it.

    Have eaten here multiple times and only had an issue once (the dolmas seemed to set me off, but YMMV). Love their food (the lentil soup!) and dedicated gluten free menu. I wish they would bring back the ceviche!

    Ordered chargrilled shrimp off the GF menu. Seasoning was delicious. Asparagus was excellent too. Also has a great tasting GF beer...Kirin Ichiban. My husband and I ordered the same meal. Both need to be GF. Neither of us got sick.

    Not a good experience at all. I explained to our waiter that I need to order off the gluten free area. When i ordered i specifically asked if the olives and feta appetizer came with pita bread and explained if it did please leave it off. he assured me it did not. When it came out it was stacked with pita bread. We sent it back and all they did was remove the bread from the plate, didnt even bother to get a new plate. needless to say I could not eat what was left on the plate. their service was horrible. My hisbands salad came out less an a minute before his meal. Will not be back.

    The managers took great care to make sure our food was prepared safely and free of multiple other allergens. Also, the food is very good, and the service was extremely friendly. The outdoor deck is super nice, and it is right next to the gulf!

    Unfortunately my experience here was not good. Even though I made it clear to the waiter that my son & I have gluten allergies, & ordered from the GF menu, he offered us sides from the regular menu. When asked if those were GF, he said was not sure, but did offer to check. He then said the fries were GF. I asked if they use a dedicated fryer, he said no. I was nervous, so when the manager walked past, I asked if he could make sure the chef knew about our allergies. Very rude response. Made me feel so bad for checking. My grilled chicken piccata was nothing to write home about. I would never eat here again.

    The food was good. I had the grilled gulf shrimp and the rice was good. We went to check with the manager since the waiter had never served a gluten free costumer. The manager was very demanding. If you are looking for a manager that is nice don't eat here.
