Great service and great food! Only GF substitute noted on the menu is the pasta but waiter was very knowledgeable and confirmed everything that we asked about with the chef. After we ordered, manager came over to confirm order and let us know GF meal would be marked with a red flag. Our daughter is super sensitive and we did not have any issues!

Good food. Said we were celiac and staff was serious and made sure to avoid cross contamination. Even flagged it with an allergy marker.

The waiter was super knowledgeable about what on the menu was gluten free and made sure to check with the chef on one dish he was uncertain about. Food came out with red flags indicating the dishes were gluten free which is always reassuring. Had the spaghetti bolognese (with gluten free penne), mashed potatoes and coffee ice cream for dessert. All was very good and no reactions!

We got a reservation the same day. We did have to wait for about 15 mins even with reservations. It was really busy and a bit loud. The vibe was very energetic. The waiter - Carlos promptly took our order and checked in on us several times. The food was great and they did have gluten free options if you ask. They marked it with red flags to note the allergy.

Staff was very knowledgeable- doubled checked my order with the kitchen to make sure it could be made gluten free. I had the salmon- a bit spicy, but very good!

Many options on the menu can be accommodated for GF. Additionally, the waitress could very clearly state to me what was GF and how things would be adjusted and that they were not at risk for cross contamination. Just make sure to say you are GF and they are exceptionally good at accomodating for allergies!

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.

I felt completely comfortable eating here, the waiter walked me through the entire menu and what would be safe to eat. There was something he was unsure about and he went back to the kitchen to check and make sure. They are able to prepare a lot of the menu GF and they also have GF pasta which they prepare separately. After ordering, a manager also came over to our table to ensure me that he and the kitchen were aware of my GF needs and that everything would be prepared safely. Anything with an allergy also comes out with a little red flag on it, so you know it’s been handled properly. My meal was delicious and I had no issues. I felt really taken care of here and I will definitely be returning!

Felt extremely comfortable eating here. Server was very knowledgeable and did not hesitate to check on GF status. After I ordered, the chef came out to double check. All of the staff were very proud of the ways they accommodate allergies. All celiac safe items were marked with a red flag. Choices were a bit limited, I had an excellent steak and sautéed baby spinach. Bummed that the smashed potatoes were prepared at the pastry station, so they were a no go. Also, they had fabulous looking desserts, but none were GF (except ice cream).

Fun, nice place to eat! The location is perfect because it’s on a street that is dedicated for restaurant seating (no cars!), so it’s a fun atmosphere/area. Has an okay selection of celiac safe options. Loved the oysters, shrimp cocktail, and enjoyed the salmon. All of my dishes came out with a red flag on them, marking my gluten allergy. They also have gf pasta available!
