While options were a bit limited, the staff is friendly and knowledgeable and my food was clearly prepared specially with a GF flag to mark it, and my waiter bringing it out separately. The food was delicious, the drinks were amazing, and the location is adorable!

The staff was nice and knowledgeable. They put a red flag in my food to ensure the kitchen knew about my dietary needs. I had the kale salad and will go back again! It’s delicious. They have a nice drink selection, too.

Delicious GF pasta. When I asked for GF pasta, they asked if I was a celiac. They then 'red flagged' my order to ensure the pasta was cooked with no contamination. Great meal.

I explained I had celiac and manager came out to assure me that a flag would be in my food to signal it was safe. I had the kale salad with quinoa with the Dijon vinaigrette for lunch. Delicious

I do not recommend this restaurant for those with celiac disease. I ordered brunch at this restaurant (midtown location) last weekend on a date. I asked about gluten free options and mentioned having celiac disease. The waiter told me the Rancheros breakfast with the corn waffle and egg were gluten free, *as long as the waffle was baked. When the food came out, it was someone from the kitchen staff who handed me my plate of food, along with my date's food. We had both ordered the same thing, but mine had been marked with a flag. I got about half way through the waffle when the waiter came out and said, "wait! Hold up, your plate doesn't have the sauce on the side. The gluten free order usually has the sauce on the side." At that point he told me to stop eating and he checked with the kitchen. A few minutes later the manager came out and was very nice and apologized, but said they had made a mistake with my order. They had given me the wrong waffle. Now, perhaps this is my fault for taking the risk of ordering a corn waffle at this restaurant, but if I were a GF customer looking at reviews, I would want to know that this happened. This week I have a full on celiac rash, I am bloated, lethargic, sniffly, and just feel lousy. So moral of the story: if you are Celiac and do not want to risk a mistake, do not order from The Smith.

The waiter was extremely knowledgeable. They flagged my allergy and every plate came out with a flag indicating it was for me. There aren’t a ton of options or anything flagging gluten free friendly foods on the menu. Hence my 4 start, otherwise this place was great.
