Staff was all very knowledgeable about their items, as far as leaving gluten free dishes off of a cast iron skillet they are usually served in and serving them in other dishes to avoid any cross contamination. Lots of attention to detail! I felt very confident in their ability to serve a great meal with no hidden gluten, a super tasty one at that!

San Chez is amazing about allergies. I have celiac disease and a shellfish allergy and in many visits over 4+ years, I’ve never had any problems. Plus—it’s delicious food!

They serve gluten-free food alongside bread and other gluten products. I have gotten sick eating there.

Amazing! They have a gluten free menu as well as a menu for most common allergies too. The gf toast points were great. Made me want cry because of how good it was. Worth every penny

I love the concept of Roam by San Chez, the decor, and the atmosphere. What fell short, was their knowledge on food sensitivities. Having gluten allergies/celiacs is not about what level you can tolerate or have. GF people beware! Substituting the bread for GF and then leaving all other components like beer and sauces with gluten is not validating to label a menu item GF! These should be corrected as they are not truly GF. I could explain my whole experience but basically the above is what I wanted to share and address.

This was the first place I ever ate in Grand Rapids on my first visit. I fell in love with it and made it a point to stop everytime I was in the area. After I moved here it became a mainstay. I don't get there as often as I'd like but they have a wide variety of gluten free options fand a GF friendly staff

Exceptional! loved everything, great knowledgeable and sweet staff. I'm very a sensitive celiac and everything was perfect! we ordered paella, salmon tapas, chicken and chorizo tapas, and there were plenty more choices. Their menu as well descriptive for alerting any possible contamination and how to order each dish

Good GF options and great service. The two items we ordered were odd, like the ingredients didn't quite blend right. But we didn't get sick and you can't argue with that.

Awesome place! They take allergies seriously. Fanciest GF menu I've seen, usually use to a binder with pages or loose leaf paper ls but they have separate menus for allergies just like their original menus. They are very respectful!

I've eaten here several times and I always feel safe as well as welcome. The staff go out of their way to make sure they understand your needs. Since this is Tapas, my server explained which foods ordered by my table mates were gluten free and brought GF bread or crackers on the plate while putting regular bread on the side, to prevent cross-contamination. This helped me feel like I didn't have to be annoying to my friends about what my needs were.

This place is great! They have a separate full menu dedicated to GF with many choices. The wait staff is very accommodating and knowledgeable. And the food is amazing! We have been here twice so far and both experiences have been excellent. Make sure to try the Goat Cheese Pavlova Cheesecake; it is to die for!

Immediately after landing in Grand Rapids, we headed to San Chez. I ate here in 2013 and discovered their gluten free bread and welcoming atmosphere, and it was the first place I wanted to visit on my return.

They have a really kind and well educated staff on celiac disease. I ordered off of their separate gluten free menu, and our server (Tyler) circled back to check in with me about the tostones because they are made in a shared fryer. I didn't order them as a result. I did have the pollo y chorizo dish, the gf bread loaf with the quince butter and salsa verde. All were fantastic! I also tried the whole garlic and red pepper appetizer, but didn't love it.

I can't wait to eat here again!

I have never been so sick after eating here. Like an extra for the exorcist movie. I was comfortable with my waitress however different people bring out your food and I don't think she communicated my gluten allergy.

We ate here twice, we thoroughly enjoyed it. Because it was just the two of us we wanted to try more of the tapas. Love this app for helping us find amazing food, especially when traveling. Wish we had more time to explore GR!

Very knowledge staff, great menu. this place never disappoints! Be sure to have anything with goat cheese, if you can tolerate dairy, and never leave without having the chocolate flourless cake with hand made truffles and raspberry sauce. San Chez is my favorite place in GR!
