I would love to give this place 5 stars because the food was great but the acoustics inside prevent me from doing this. My boyfriend and I both had ear pain from the noise. Thankfully our table became available just as we had reached our limit and we were able to leave the bar and sit outside. There isn't really anything inside to absorb sound. I would be interested to know what the noise exposure is for the employees during the evening. The wait for food was crazy long and I got a little sick from low blood sugar. I had no idea it would take an hour for food after our order or I wouldn't have gotten a drink. I'm not a drinker but they had fresh mint so I indulged. All that said, if you sit outside and be prepared for a long wait the food is delicious and they have lots of gluten free options. The menu states most items can be made gluten free. I enjoyed the Paella.

I had the lemon chicken with broccollini & root mash and it was SO GOOD. Most foods are gluten free or can be made gluten free. The server was knowledge me and although my food was GF anyway, she told the chef. We got the cheese board for an appetizer which was really tasty as well. I had a great experience and no reaction.

I had the teriyaki vegetable stirfry. They make their teriyaki there and it’s gluten free. It was okay. I didn’t really enjoy the services. We were seated at an awful table in the entry of the downstage dining room. Our waiter was helpful but every other interaction with staff was a little busy and pushy. As if the staff couldn’t bother to stop and help because they were stressed or rushed.

Not my favorite place in Savannah.

No buns but a few good GF options like shrimp and grits. I opted for the cheese board which was delish. Great sangria too and cool atmosphere!

They have gf salads and maybe 3 random other plates (e.g. Cauliflower risotto, shrimp and grits), but no gf buns or bread for their awesome sandwiches. It was fine to just eat one bunless, but I really would have appreciated an ordinary burger. Had one gluten free beer option.

Excellent Food, location and service for this trendy hip corner Restaraunt! Plenty of GF option. They even made the Risitto GF and Cow Dairy Free... but disappointingly no GF Bun options to go w their Grass-fed beef

I had a horrible experience here. I was looking forward to it based on all of the great reviews but the waiter had no knowledge of what was gluten free and only offered me a burger with no bun and then, of course, it came with a bun. Based on that, I did not end up eating with the rest of my party.

This is a great restaurant for gluten free and non gluten free people to eat at. I get the Shrimp and grits and have never had an issue. Very good food all around!

Had an awesome meal!! I am also allergic to peanuts, tree nuts, and dairy products. I am able to consume goat cheeses and milk, so the Stuffed Chicken breast was a real winner for me. The waiter was not entirely sure how to help unless I asked questions, but other servers appeared to be more knowledgeable about food allergies. Be assertive and know your food "yes-es."

Wonderful food in a nice atmosphere. The bison burger (no bun) was incredible. Two of their three desert options are gf and much of their menu in general.

The staff is very knowledgeable and can say what items are gluten free. Most of the items on the normal menu are (except for the sandwiches). Good food and good quality!
