I’m celiac, I did not get sick. Menu items are marked, but you need to tell them if it’s an allergy. They have GF pita for the hummus if you request it. The GF pita seems to be a store bough pizza crust but it was nice and tasted good with the hummus. They have several vegetarian/GF menu choices. I would recommend this restaurant it’s a great experience.

Enjoyed having a dinner out on the patio. The waiter was great and acknowledged all of my concerns. Ate the hummus trio with gf pita, tomatoes and cucumbers, chicken kebabs, Dolmades. Everything was delicious.

I got the ribeye meal. Menu is clearly marked what is gluten free which made it easy to find stuff I could actually eat.

Was nervous after seeing some of the old reviews but decided to give it a go, was not disappointed. The server took great care of me. I safely ate a few things including grape leaves, and lemon potatoes. The server also offered gluten free pita to go with hummus. Many items are marked gluten free.

No dedicated fryer. Not very knowledgeable about cross contamination. Want to help but not trained or prepared. Menu has listed GF items and GF bread. Depends on your sensitivity level. Not recommended for those with celiac's.

Service was lack luster. Waitress wouldn’t discuss gluten free sides. Just said you’ll get GF sides. No gluten free pita. The chicken kabobs were tasty but two pieces were raw. Raw chicken in a restaurant is a pretty unforgivable mistake.

Lots of gluten free choices salmon seabass, gluten free appetizers and stuff too! Always check with the server about gluten free and remind them of cross contamination... i had several platters and a day later my stomach is happy and it was awesome! They accidentally brought out the wrong pita at first, which is why at any restaurant when the server brings out the food i double check if its gluten free... even if u order gluten free just check with the server a second time. I ate ALOT here and was amazing! Deff will be back! Plus i was dancing on the table fun environment great for a date!

Ask to speak to the manager. I did not feel comfortable with what the server was telling me. That being said had a great meal and so far no ill effects. Had feta and olives and dolmades. Dolmades were warmed up and yummy and good quality feta and olives. Got the shrimp kabobs and they substituted cooked greens and a Greek salad since the normal sides were not gf. All tasted great. The shrimp had a really great taste. Environment was nice. Meal was expensive however but good food. They DO NOT have a dedicated frier anymore.

I LOVED this place. I went with my 100% Greek mother and my "Greek by Marriage" dad and we all agreed that it was super delicious and authentic. I had a number of dishes with the prominently displayed gluten free logo. Everything was delicious and authentic. My parents even described the atmosphere as similar to nightlife in Naxos and Santorini, their favorite islands. My family and I even discussed trying to drag out relatives down to Florida for the specific purpose of taking all our greek relatives to this place. I adored this place and I think anyone who likes Greek food and parties would love this place too!

They have GF indicators on their menu. The staff was extremely knowledgable. They even have a GF fryer for French fries. Many of their sides have a gluten filled chicken stock so make sure to check with your server before you order your sides. You have to try their Saganaki, it's a vlachotiri cheese flamed tableside.
