The chef came out, and it sounded like the food prep would be fine except for the cutting board, so we planned a dinner where nothing would touch that. I had salmon and a salad (bagged lettuce) and had no reaction despite being very sensitive. They were very friendly and helpful.
I have only had good experiences here so far and I’ve eaten here several times. I usually get the same waitress somehow and she’s always great (I wish I could remember her name!). They don’t have gluten free bread which is such a shame, but several dishes are gluten free and they usually have a GF dinner special. If you eat beef I definitely suggest the sirloin with white chocolate sauce. Sounds so weird but is so good.
Mehhh... If your only allergy is gluten, you’ll probably be OK. I was told that the owner is gluten-free & that they take GF needs seriously. However, if you want a great GF experience or have multiple allergies, you may want to skip it. They don’t have GF breads or buns & I did not see anything about a dedicated fryer. GF items were marked on the menu. The menu on the website did not match the menu in-house. I checked the menu online before we arrived, but the dish I planned to order was no longer on the menu when we got there. I explained my allergies to the waitress & gave her a card with all my sensitivities & allergies listed. She said she would show it to the cook. I could not have my second choice dish - chicken Marsala- b/c I asked that they hold the bacon . (I am very allergic to pork.) Apparently, the Marsala sauce was pre-made with the bacon already included. For my 3rd choice, I picked a turkey sandwich, hold the bacon & cheese (due to my pork allergy & dairy sensitivity) on a lettuce wrap since there were no GF buns. The waitress came to the table again to confirm that I wanted the sandwich w/o cheese; I said , “yes, no cheese.” The turkey came to the table w/melted cheese. I did not point it out b/c we were headed to a show, there was no time to re-make it, & I can tolerate a small amount of cheese. I just tried to eat around it. This was our first visit to Sixth & Vine. We were in town for an event. I would not go back without trying other places in Winston-Salem first.
The food was excellent. Our waitress was not. She was short and didn’t care to explain the gluten free desserts, which is a shame because when I looked at the menu before arriving, they looked fantastic. If we’d had a different waitress I’m sure it would’ve been 5 stars.
This is such a cute place! It's located in downtown Winston-Salem, not far from the chocolate factory. Very laid back atmosphere. The menu isn't huge, but they offer a variety of GF options. Most of what was listed were breakfast and lunch (omelets, sandwiches, salads, etc). I had a grilled chicken salad with walnuts, pistachios, dried cranberries and cherries, blue cheese, and honey mustard vinegarette. AMAZING! Perfect light and tasty lunch. One of the best salads I've had.
Really enjoyed my meal here, quality ingredients put together in a delightful way. And LOTS of GF options (now on the menu!). I tried the soup and a small plate off the specials menu, both were good, but the star of the night was the Pear and Bibb salad. So delicious I almost considered a second one for dessert. Would come back for that salad alone.
