This was hands down the best experience I’ve ever had at a restaurant. They were able to take just about any menu item, change the way it was prepared, and offer me a gluten free version with no cross contamination. I’ve never had a restaurant do that for me before. Our server was extremely knowledgeable and hand delivered all the gluten free food. I’m definitely going back!

They have an extensive allergy menu but at first glance at the menu for gf options, it was quite daunting. The waitress came by to ask if we were ready to order & I told her it was so hard because there wasn’t much. She just said I know. The second time she came I said,”Why are all the vegetable plates not gf?” Even the rice with lentils wasn’t. Thankfully she came back with a Chef. He said even though everything is made mostly in advance they could accommodate almost any item. This was great! Food was tasty, portions small & price was high.

The staff was very knowledgeable and accommodating. They had an extensive allergy menu and were able to customize a salad to meet me needs. Food was delicious and beautiful. I had the Hommus with carrots and cucumber, smoked beet salata (made custom GF), and octopus santorini! No reaction.

Very accommodating, they were able to make adjustments to make sure there wasn’t any cross contamination. Highly recommend! Had the Hummus, Shish Taouk, Skuna Bay Salmon, and Greek Yogurt and Apricots and the Turkish Delight without the phyllo and they were all delicious!

When I walked in they had already noted celiac. Server was able to talk through options and how chef would make GF. Fabulous meal. Just missed out on pita bread. We had 8 different dishes, everyone a 5 star plate. Fabulous

Amazing food and a large selection of GF options. The lamb shoulder is amazing but order a half portion - which is still huge!! Our server was very knowledgeable and helpful.

Amazing place, go if you get the chance. They have a separate menu that covers all major food allergens. Server let us know they could still prepare additional items not marked on the allergen menu. We asked about a couple items and they were able to prepare them in a different way (separate pan vs. shared fryer). Service was impeccable and food was delicious. A must try if you're in DC.

One of the best if not the best restaurants I’ve eaten at and allergy friendly on top of that. I’ve had the same waitress twice and she knows the menu backwards and forwards and is very savvy about substitutions and cross contamination issues. Perfect date night or nice meal out. Lots and lots of options. Ask for the allergy menu where items are marked for gluten, dairy, nuts and other items.

They have very detailed allergen information, but by the time I narrowed it down to things I could have the options were limited (I also have to avoid nuts and dairy).

The menu is very easy for GF. Lots of options. They are a little skimpy with the sauces and it is easy to spend a ton of money but that’s par for the course with tapas restaurants. Our server was very knowledgeable about GF.

Delicious! Staff was well trained and able to help us navigate the menu. Allergen menu is comprehensive with many gf and df options. Food was great! One item did not come out and it was not on our bill, and they also sent out a gf dessert on the house.

Although the gf menu is limited, our waitress was very helpful in pointing out which items in the prix fixe menu could be made gluten free. The food was delicious, especially the baba ganoush!

Our meal was pretty good, but I agree with earlier reviews that they should have a few more options for the hummus and other spreads besides a few cucumber slices. I didn't realize they weren't kid-friendly either. Leave the kids with a sitter and enjoy

I must have showed up on a bad night. Waiter was really annoyed that I had celiac. Had no appreciation for cross contamination and refused to help me understand the menu. I ended up eating very little with my group and being hungry. At least they have a gf menu--however they need

Gluten free menu and dairy free menu. Proactively offered to ask kitchen to prevent cross contamination. Would modify off menu items as well. One of the better gluten free meals I have ever had. Reasonable and delicious!

Yes, they have a gluten free menu but they have no substitute for bread and crackers. Given that many of their dishes are things like humus or eggplant, rice crackers or GF bread should be available.

Outstanding food for celiacs & people with no dietary restrictions. I appreciated being asked whether they needed to consider cross contamination when making my food & servers being so aware of ingredients & kitchen procedures. Save room for dessert!

First restaurant I've ever been to where the waitstaff asked the severity of my reaction to cross-contamination. He then pointed out the dishes where cc could be an issue and said if I wanted one of those it'd be extra wait time but the chef could do it. Entire experience and food were wonderful.

Dedicated gluten-free menu. Server very knowledgeable about allergies and asked if I had cross-contamination issues. Everytime an item came to our table, she immediately was behind me (like she appeared out of nowhere!) to tell me if it was safe for me to eat. I had a great experience and the server made it such a great experience.
