I was diagnosed with Celiac less than a month ago. My boyfriend took me here for a nice birthday dinner last night as we'd been the previous year and really enjoyed it as a special-occasion restaurant. I'm calling this gluten friendly because all of the sashimi is fish and nothing else - they do not put any soy sauce on it for you first, and everything in the tray it comes in is gluten free. It's also the best sashimi you'll ever eat in your life; make sure to ask the wait staff for their recommendations, as our waitress recommended a baby yellowtail (I think that's what it was) that wasn't on the menu, and it was AMAZING. And fresh sea urchin - glad I tried it, and it was one of my favorite types of fish I've ever eaten. What a treat.The restaurant has gluten-free soy sauce upon request, but the sauce at the table regularly does contain wheat, so just make sure to ask for GF and they'll bring the bottle (it's the actual bottle you'd see in a store, so can check the ingredients yourself.)The sushi/sashimi is only about a third of the menu. The other 2/3rds, including everything on the robata grill (which had frequent cross-contamination) and all the main entrees, contained gluten. The menu was not well-labeled to indicate this, but our waitress said that most things had sauces that contained wheat-containing soy sauce or some other gluten-containing sauce, and that there was no gluten-free part of the kitchen except for the sushi bar that could be used to safely cook it. Plus, we ordered matcha ice cream for dessert thinking it would be ok, and it came out with a wafer roll thing on top when that wasn't on the menu. My non-celiac boyfriend was able to eat it, but our waitress brought out another separate fresh scoop for me.Our waitress had a family member with Celiac so was extraordinarily knowledgable and helpful and spent extra time with us to make sure we could have an enjoyable night as much as possible given my new restriction. Based on the waitress and sushi/sashimi alone I'd give it 6 stars if I could.But unfortunately I can only give 4 because the rest of the menu was so limited. If you do get a chance to eat here, I would highly recommend sitting at the sushi bar if you're a small group. I think part of what made this such a fun experience for me was seeing all the delicious types of sushi I could still eat and not really seeing the other entrees that other diners were eating that were off-limits to me. The sushi chefs there are some of the best in Texas (coming from a big sushi afficianado), and it can be mesmerizing watching them work.
