This restaurant is gluten-free (every item on the menu!), and the food is delicious. The menu changes daily because the food is locally sourced. For dinner I was served sourdough bread, chinook salmon with a rhubarb mushroom sauce, and quinoa. For brunch I had sourdough bread with apple butter and rockfish potato hash. Zach is amazing. I have several food issues besides a gluten allergy: I need to be dairy-free, avoid inflammatory foods, avoid reflux causing foods, avoid white sugar, and avoid greasy, oily, spicy foods. He gladly and cheerfully responded to every issue. He said he was happy to do so. The second time I ate at the restaurant, I didn’t need to remind him. I have never been treated so nicely at a restaurant. We will be returning to the area soon, and I have reserved every meal at his restaurant.

Zach demonstrates a clear understanding of celiac. Even swapped out some hand-foraged berries in his recipe since he “didn’t know where the berry-picker’s hands had been.” Pretty much the entire menu can be done gluten-free safely, and he has a personal text number on the website for answering dietary questions.

BEST MEAL EVER. I’m not kidding. Was served by Zach himself who is very knowledgeable about celiac/GF dining. Had the 6 course meal with wine pairing and MY GOD never been happier. Worth the price, worth the visit, please come here!

Fabulous Valentines Day dinner here! I believe it was a special Valentines dinner as were we able to order a 4 course meal out several selections paired with wines. We had the scallops as our main dish. The waitress doubled checked all our selections to ensure they were gluten free and even brought us gluten free bread instead of the regular bread they serve. Will definitely go back on our next visit.

Go here! It's amazing! The food was delicious and 90% of the menu is naturally GF! Zach served us himself and was very aware of cross contamination. We will definitely be back!

Update: we went back for brunch just today. I love that this place is so good and nearly dedicated GF, no flour in the kitchen! The coffee cake French toast was amazing and my husband had the long cod hash that was also great! They use baked goods from New Cascadia! Yum! Zach’s Bistro will definitely be a part of every coast trip from now on!

This small restaurant in a converted house served probably one of the best meals of my life. YUM. Everything but one entree & a bunch of beers was GF. The lovely waitress even brought us a hot GF roll as the pre-dinner bread! Our meals were fancy & delicious, & the dessert we shared had us wanting to lick the plate—which the waitress said would be fine. 😄 It was not cheap, but for our anniversary celebration, it was perfect, and we will definitely return. So, so good!!

Our server was amazingly welcoming to my dietary needs. As soon as we asked if they have any gluten free options, she was quick to say they can make anything gluten free and dairy free. Zach in the kitchen was so accommodating with my meal, I had the Hage, which was amazing, and when they brought out bread for the rest of my party, she brought out gluten free bread for me separately. They could not have been more helpful and I felt like they really cared about my health and wanted me to be able to have whatever I wanted on the menu. I can't recommend this place highly enough!

Unfortunately, this was not a great experience. We were seated promptly, but it took 30 min for the food to arrive. We both had hamburgers, my gluten free bun was fine, the regular bun was so hard it was inedible. The fries consisted of 7 of them and by the time the got around to get the ketchup there were only 2 left.

Zach does a different menu 3x/day, so I'd mention what we liked but it may be different tomorrow! The menu choices are creative, fresh and delicious. Nearly everything on menu is GF. We had gluten free bread with fresh, Himalayan salted butter to start. My burger came on great GF buns (slider sized), and every dessert on menu was GF. A GF place for foodies - just terrific!

The food was great whether you eat gluten free or not! I called ahead and told them I have Celiac. The service was great, I was informed of all the things I could order. I really loved the crab cake! I left and never got sick! I highly recommend this place!

Our new favorite place to dine. Zach is amazing and so is the food. I've never felt so comfortable eating in a place as a celiac to date (you always wonder). Everything, including the gluten free roll served with our salad was a delight, and the ambiance is so warm and welcoming. This is now our go to spot in Newport. Period.

This place is safe to enjoy if you are a super sensitive Celiac. The chef came out and checked with me about what I had ordered. He was so friendly and the food was AMAZING! They even had GF bread that I couldn't believe was GF it was so good.

**They do have weird hours and are closed on certain days so call ahead.**

I FOUND THE FOOD HERE AMAZING! I had a pasta dish and had to have the waitress re-question the chef regarding its being gf because it tasted exactly like regular pasta. even my husband couldnt taste a difference. the chef himself came out and told us they use minninis pasta which is completely gluten free. they use it for ANYONE who orders a pasta dish. not just gf! thats how good it is!! IF YOU HAVE CELIAC AND ARE IN SEARCH OF GOOD FOOD....GO TO ZACHS! YOU WILL BE PLEASANTLY SURPRISED!!!

Delicious food. Loved that only three menu items were off limits. I had some of the delicious fish chowder before my husband demolished it. He loved the (non-gf) dropped sourdough bread. My gluten free bread was very tasty. I loved that I could eat crab cakes here. For an entree I went with the duck with orange cherry compote served with black rice and zucchini. Yum! Had the blueberry crisp and the creme brûlée for dessert. There are quite a few wine and a few gf beer options here as well. Every third or fourth Thursday they also offer a Greek menu. Will come back again.

They seem to be very knowledgeable regarding food allergy issues. The waitress was extremely nice and either knew the answer to our questions or happily asked the chef if she didn't. The food was pretty good - though not amazing. However the GF bread was awesome!

95% gluten free menu with fabulous service! The chef also had pre-prepared gluten free substitutes on dishes that weren't originally gluten free. We were visiting from Portland and would definitely recommend this and come back again!
