    I appreciate that they removed the gluten free menu because they weren't set up to avoid cross contamination, but the "gluten light" options remaining on the menu are not celiac safe. I did manage to eat there safely by having a mushroom burger on greens which they cooked a separate pan, but I won't be going back - too risky. Too bad - they are a fantastic restaurant.

    5/10/16: our server informed us they NO LONGER OFFER GLUTEN-FREE FOOD! Boooo.....what a bummer. Used to LOVE this place :(

    This is for hipsters who want to have "low gluten" options, not for those with celiac.

    They couldn't guarantee anything was gluten free for celiac. Say at the bar area in front of the kitchen. They were careless and all food cooked together. I don't recommend for celiac for sure. I had a salad and left.

    I really liked this place! I went here with a friend who does not eat meat, and it was awesome to find a place that could accomodate both of our diets. When I went in, the hostess actually asked upfront if we wanted a gluten free menu. In general, the staff seems knowledgeable. The menu is pretty extensive and the bread was good! I also tried one of their dairy free milkshakes (the PB/chocolate one) and thought it was surprisingly good.

    We found Veggie Galaxy to be UNceliac friendly, even though the ambiance and service were very pleasant. The GF menu lists pancakes and fries, but were told at the table that they are NOT actually GF (for celiacs at least). The GF veggie burger came between two slices of bread rather than a bun - disappointing for our daughter. There are several other good GF options (the Shepherd's Pie was good), but having been drawn by the promise of the other items, we felt they were disingenuous in their GF advertising. A GF beer or two on the menu would be extra helpful.

    sensational good food, even dessert options gluten free. If you ask for it you will get an extra menu. lovely place, my favorite spot in Boston so far.

    Always at least 2 gluten free desserts. Knowledgable, friendly staff, tasty food, a dedicated gluten free menu. Never disappointed but often a wait to get in. Especially on weekends. Worth it.

    Great food and great, knowledgeable staff. As a vegetarian with celiac disease, there are few places that I can eat out at safely without ordering a plain lettuce salad. I was staying in Boston for several days, and Veggie Galaxy was one of the places that came up with positive reviews when I was doing my advance gf research. This place was so good that even my non-vegetarian, non-gluten free co-worker loved it.The price is extremely reasonable for the amount of food that one gets as well. Beware that the food is very filling and the portions big, so you might not be able to try everything all at once. The dishes that I have had and recommend are the Inman Square burger, the Grilled House Smoked Tofu (which comes with a MOUNTAIN of fries, which are generally gf, unless the dedicated frier is broken, as was the case one night), the Vegan Frappes (both strawberry-banana and peanut butter & chocolate were delicious) and the coconut cream chocolate cake.

    Waiter was knowledgeable. I had an omelette with GF toast, and he offered a side of arugula in lieu of the standard home fries (because they are cooked on the common griddle). Good meal with lots of options.

    Please make sure you clarify that you have an allergy-- there are items ON the gf menu that are crossed contaminated and not safe for those with celiac. I was told I could not eat the hash browns, even though they were listed as gluten free. )-:

    This place is extremely accommodating to anyone with food allergies, especially multiple allergies. I have a gluten, dairy and egg allergy and I was able to get the best pancakes I've ever had and a big bowl of ice cream! Even the people at my table who have no allergies said they perfered these pancakes to regular ones! The staff was super knowledgeable on the menu (didn't even have to go back to the kitchen to check on anything) and I think we had the best waiter we have ever gotten! highly reccomended!

    The mushroom chickpea budget on gf today was very good. My server wasn't very knowledgeable about gluten so I was a little nervous but I'd go back here.

    My waitress got confused when I asked about their vegan cheese, but the food was good and they have safe french fries!
