Excellent food and service! All of their sauces are vegan, so in addition to being totally gluten free, there were lots of dairy free options as well. The cocktails were strong and tasty and Arro took great care of us!

We’re going as far as using them for catering for our wedding next year.

The staff was super friendly and knowledgeable, the food was delicious!! Everything in their restaurant is gluten-free with vegetarian and vegan options as well!! The food was delicious!! I had the fajitas and my friend order chile rellanos with agua frescas and shared the queso fundido appetizer. It was so liberating to be able to order food with both our dietary restrictions (me celiac and her vegetarian) without worrying about cross-contamination or not being taken seriously. Definitely recommend Verde Cosina!!

While everything is GF safe and the waiter cross-checked for other allergens, this does not taste like traditional Mexican food. The flavours were not there, the corn chips had more flavour than the guacamole and salsas. The enchiladas taste nothing like any Mexican dish I’ve ever had. Essentially come with an open mind and imagine you may not be eating what you think of when you think of Mexican and your tastebuds will be just fine.

Lovely to have yet another dedicated gf restaurant. We are traveling from Norfolk, VA, and it's nice not to have to worry about cross contamination for my husband, who has Celiac. Very tasty, though the enchilada I got was spicier than anticipated! (I am a total spice wimp, though)

We found this place with the app while passing through Portland last week and we made a point of passing through again today so we could have dinner again! The food is fantastic, it's beautifully presented and the service both times was so great. They are really enthusiastic. The whole place is 100 percent GF. We are staying in town tonight because the breakfast and brunch looks so good. There is seating both outside and inside. The atmosphere is lovely.

100% gluten free so obviously a plus. Unfortunately the food was really bland. Like REALLY bland. I got the tacos and they needed salt bad, the green sauce it came with literally tasted like nothing. I will say the black beans were pretty good and that saved the meal. The other three people I went with all agreed the food had literally no flavor at all and it was just super disappointing.

We had the Chilaquiles and fajitas (not on the menu, yet available if you ask for them) The food tasted very bland in our opinion. So, it was a bit disappointing on that front. Also, I felt funky after eating. I realize they state that it is a solely GF restaurant. Yet, I can’t vouch for it being safe!

This place is fantastic. We were looking for a place to get a good gluten-free meal without worries—my daughter has celiac. The restaurant is completely gluten-free. The food was outstanding! The Chile relleno was delicious and the carne asada salad with the belly bacon was out of this world. I highly recommend this place. We were pleasantly surprised, not only by the quality of the food, but by the yummy drinks and great atmosphere as well. You will be too.

Holy cow!! So so good! I wasn’t expecting it to be as delicious as it was! Chile relleno with pork belly. Guac, steak salad. Steak and potatoes. Chimichurri. OMG! 😍 we did a Grubhub delivery and our chips were forgotten. Which is the only negative. But nothing to take away from how good the food is! We are on vacation and needed some major veggies in our lives so it was a good combo for Mexican and getting away from the rice and beans and getting some veggies!

Overly plant based “Mexican” styled food. Disappointing lack of flavor. Salads are probably the best option, but everything is gluten free. I was really hoping for more. The green and red salsas tasted very similar to me.
