    I dined here and attempted to order a salad that had fried mushrooms on top (only thing that was not gluten free about the selection), so I asked if they could simply be left off. Waitress goes to ask and the chef suggested I simply order something else, as she felt the mushrooms were integral to the dish. Waitress let me order them on the side. Husband tried them and said they were awful anyways. It will be hard for me to go back to a place where the chef could not easily accommodate my gluten allergy over some stupid mushrooms. I found it overrated. Also, the fake meat items aren't gluten free, so I didn't feel I had a ton of options.

    I have been here several times. The servers are always very knowledgeable about gluten free options. Love the cornbread appetizer and almost always get the farmers market plate if there is a gluten free option.

    Went for brunch and loved it. I had a lot of options and my family was ok to try non meat items too. Everyone was happy and when travelling to Raleigh i will go back for sure!

    We went on a Saturday, very early and it was full but not yet packed. The space is small, ‘dark’ and noisy. They’re a veggie vegan restaurant right near the amphitheater. I ordered the Nori Rolls with Sashimi Tofu and it was amazing along with a ginger soda that was hot! It was great, the waiters were very conscious of food and dietary issues. It’s pricy, but you’re paying for quality, so I happy too. Don’t forget you can eat at the bar. The staff seem to love their job. Can’t wait to go back.

    Can't say enough good things about this restaurant. There should be one like it in every city!

    The Fiction Kitchen is an all vegetarian place with mostly vegan options. Over half of the menu is GF. It is clearly marked and the staff is amazing. The food is delicious and creative!!
