I felt very safe ordering because the server (co-owner, chef is his wife) double-checked everything he wasn't certain about. Delicious.

This restaurant was great! They have items marked as GF on the menu and the servers definitely knew about gluten. They told me my meal was coming out last because the manager was changing gloves before plating and bringing it to me. They also left one part of the meal off the plate (substituted it) because there was a spoon in the salsa and they weren't sure if it had touched gluten. Excellent service, highly recommend!

Absolutely delicious! The owner Alina was so attentive and knowledgeable about my gluten and dairy allergies. I had the stew and Micci which she said were the most Romanian style foods on the menu. Everything was prepared fresh and just so good. And I loved the vampire theme 😂

A beautiful place! Romanian-American cuisine (Vlad/Dracula themed!). Open for lunch and dinner, Full bar and restaurant. There are over 16 different gluten free items on the menu - yay! No gf bread, but you can have burgers without a bun. My daughter and I (both GF) had a wonderful meal! Highly recommended.
