Had a lovely dinner. Food was innovative and delicious. Service was prompt and courteous but not overbearing. Has above average entre selections for simultaneous Celiac and vegan (not just a salad). Ambiance is upscale casual.

One of my fav GF places to eat! Went 2 days in a row just to get my fill. The first day I had the quinoa salad with chicken and the second I had the red fish tacos that came with the best beans I have ever had. Everything tasted great and settled well too.

They assured me that they take lots of precautions to avoid cross-contamination, and they seemed to know what they were talking about. I had the charred cauliflower and a GF margarita pizza. I didn’t love the cauliflower, but the pizza was pretty good (nothing special, the same crust everyone uses, but fresh toppings). I didn’t have a reaction, so I would eat there again. It’s overall fairly expensive, though the pizza is a pretty standard price for GF in this area ($15.50).

Food was great and seasonal! Lots of variety, including the GF options, which is always exciting and overwhelming as someone with celiac. Waitress was knowledgeable, nice, and accommodating. I was informed they are familiar with cross contamination, have a separate fryer, a GF pizza dough option, and that many gluten dishes could be made GF.

Didn't even stay. Not many options, and the cucumbers and lettuce were being prepared on a counter that also had a bowl of flour, and flour spilled all over the place.

The staff was knowledgeable and assured me it was gluten-free. As I walked out, I saw a waiter rolling the silverware onto the napkins on the same table where they roll out pizza. The flour was everywhere. I tested with my Nima and there was gluten in my dish that was supposed to be gluten-free. Sorry. If you are celiac, I wouldn’t eat here.

It’s nice to feel not guilty of eating out. In fact it felt healthier than homemade meals. Menu was clearly marked and had a lot of options. They made a mistake and brought something not indicated as gluten free but made gluten free, so I’m sure they are very accommodating. Had pad thai(so so, don’t expect pad thai you get at thai restaurants), quinoa burger(delicious), fish tacos(kids ate very well). Especially the quinoa burger was very creative. Our dishes had more veggies and less carbs than what I except at most other restaurants. Didn’t get sick. The only thing was, none of us were full after...

Food was good and gluten free items are labeled on the menu. Staff is very knowledgeable, but my charred cauliflower appetizer did come back gluten positive on my Nima Sensor. Manager was very nice and had it remade “correctly.” Also had their pad Thai, and nothing I ended up eating made me sick.

GF options clearly marked on the menu. I ordered a seasonal salad and asked that it be prepared separately, which they did. They were clear again when they brought my dish out that it was gluten free. They also brought gluten free pita to go with the hummus dish. I would definitely go back.

Menu lists which dishes are gluten free. If you say you have an allergy to gluten they make the dish in a separate room and use clean utensils, prep surface area etc. Waiter staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. Delicious food too! Eating here a number of times and have never gotten sick.

When we walked in I could immediately tell the would be understanding of my dairy and gluten allergy and felt safe even though the menu says gluten “friendly” not free. The menu had lots of options, some of which I don’t get to experience when going out. I expect there to be a gluten free bun or taco shell but not an entire dessert menu! The bartender who served started to list the 3 options and I stopped him to say- you only have to tell me which are gluten and dairy free. To my surprise he said ALL! He was knowledgeable about the menu and the ingredients and informed the kitchen of my allergies. All the food was very delicious! My husband keeps talking about how much he enjoyed it, especially the flourless warm chocolate cake. The whole restaurant including the bathrooms was immaculately clean. The customer service was wonderful from everyone even the runners bringing plates over. Of all the restaurants in this downtown area we tried, this was my favorite!

10/10 would recommend! Josh was so nice and informative on our first visit here! I’m gluten sensitive and the menu had a little “gf” next to everything gluten free. We had the charred cauliflower (delicious!) the squash casserole (yum cheese!) and the flourless chocolate cake (YES 100x!) No flare ups and will definitely be back!
