    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.

    Small portions, very pricey, not the best food.

    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).

    Lots of gluten free options and amazingly knowledgeable and helpful servers. They take all allergies very seriously. And the food is delicious!

    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.

    Overpriced and food was not good. Better options in the city.

    Delicious food. Extremely considerate about cross contamination - they ask you immediately when you bring up allergies

    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

    They take great care to make sure there is no cross contamination and to warn you if there is any.

    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.
