    People! They bake their own wheat bread! Flour stays airborne. Huge cross contamination risk! I cannot believe no one else has posted this previously Sadly, I couldn't stay and eat there. I will say, though that the staff is amazing and honest about cross contamination risks. The food looked wonderful! I wish I could have stayed.

    I stayed at the Kimpton Monaco, and came here for brunch. They have separate menus for each meal of the day, anything that might be put in a shared fryer is pan fried instead. I had a gluten free muffin (coconut chocolate chip), and the eggs Benedict with polenta. It was all amazing, and I felt very secure with their knowledge of celiac. The muffin was so good, my boyfriend was worried it contained gluten! I wanted to take some home with me, but the were out, so our waitress gave us free homemade gluten free focaccia bread. This restaurant is a must if you're in downtown Denver!

    Deliciously romantic and worry free! HIGHLY knowledge staff will bend over backwards to accommodate any and every allergy. Having Celiac, soy, and corn eating out can be scary. This place makes you feel totally at ease and safe to eat anything including breads and pasta dishes. While on the higher end of the price spectrum it is worth every dollar spent.

    I went on restaurant week so my options were limited. I ordered the Caesar salad and asked if they would put some grilled chicken on it for me. They obliged and it was the best Caesar salad have ever had!

    Absolutely amazing! I was recently diagnosed with Celiac's and kept reading about horror stories of restaurants not knowing what they're talking about when it came to gluten and cross-contamination. My waiter knew more than I did! He was telling me how a dish was changed so that it as gkuten free, their processes to ensure no cross-contamination, and more. He even asked it my table would like to share a gluten free bread basket instead. I'm glad he mentioned this as old habits might not have made me think twice before grabbing a piece. Wonderful experience, great food (if a bit pricy), and I'd recommend it.

    I was being cheap and got a delicious arugula salad and a still pretty expensive turkey panini that was alright, but if you're willing to pay, their other dishes looked amazing. Waitstaff was friendly and knowledgeable and I did not get sick.

    Hostess and waitress completely on top of it for gf. Extensive gf options. Delicious and healthy...we all felt well afterwards. In the Hotal Monaco. They surprised us with gf bread and tapenade. Dessert options too.

    Had two great breakfasts here and they were so accommodating! They offer a GF muffin of the day and can make 2/3 of menu items GF. Our first server was amazingly knowledgable and offered to have my potatoes pan fried instead of deep fried to make sure they were safe. A chef brought my meal out to confirm. Second server was enthusiastic but said something about the oil being high enough temperature to "kill" the gluten, which I was skeptical of. Had a great GF continental breakfast though and was brought extra muffins at no charge. Would definitely recommend.

    While traveling in Denver Panzano popped up as GF so we checked it out. They had many GF options, our waiter was aware, it was nice, but... Traveler beware.. It's pretty foofoo- pricey. Ultimately we left because there was nothing on the menu suitable for picky kids

    This was the best meal I had ever had and included bread! No sacrifices for an amazing meal...fried Brussels sprouts, egg plant Parmesan, scallops with risotto and dessert. Just wish I lived in Denver...would make the snow bareable.

    Yummy! - Dinner was great. Chef Elise does a great job offering items that can be made GF. I tried the Fried Brussel Sprouts and Scallops with Forbidden Rice. I skipped dessert but there were several options.
