I got sick after eating food from here. Ordered off the gluten free menu and got sick. They offer gluten free menu but do not have a gluten free kitchen...so why offer gluten free food if you’re not going to take the steps to avoid cross contamination and keep your customers safe?Makes no sense!!!

I have eaten here twice as a celiac with no issues. People taking order are familiar with gluten free options available.

Great, healthy food, much of it GF. Brought my Celiac daughter here, and she had the GF mac and cheese, steak and broccoli with parmesan, and she LOVED it! No reaction! They have GF cookies, muffins and awesome brownies. They take Celiac seriously, just make sure to tell them when ordering.

Menu is marked for gluten free. They will also mark your meal for allergy if you notify them when you order. Healthy, delicious food! The chocolate chip cookies are amazing!

Been enjoying this place 2years! Its a frequent stop when visiting from Philly! Plenty of GF options. Favorite is the Thai Cashew Quinoa bowl with roast chicken added! Also fantastic sides from spicy eggplant, roasted cauliflower, and gf Mac and cheese! Never disappointed! So excited one is coming east to DC!

Soo good. Although it’s not a GF facility, they do a good job of trying not to cross contaminate. Macaroni and coffee cake was great! A lot of options.

Great place for a celiac. Mention celiac and wheat allergy and it will be prepped accordingly. Menu is marked with GF items. Never had issues here. It’s wonderful.

I spoke to the chef, who said he makes his own handmade pita bread with wheat flour. That means this restaurant is not celiac safe because wheat flour can be anywhere in the kitchen. Because it’s not celiac safe, I have no idea what star to give it. I just gave it a 3 arbitrarily.

Lots of vegan and gluten free options. My husband is celiac and has never gotten sick here! Their bowls are amazing and they are knowledgeable on gluten allergies and will make substitutions to make a dish gluten free. They have gluten free Mac n cheese that my kids loved!

I absolutely LOVE this place...I typically stick with a plate with Avocado, Spinach and Cauliflower with either chicken or salmon. It’s delicious!

There was a huge selection of gluten free items to choose from. All of the selections I made were tasty and, as far a I can tell one hour late, celiac friendly.

Easy to navigate away from the gluten items on the menu. I was concerned about cross contamination but we did fine.

I always considered this place relatively safe, but on the last trip things did not look right as I watched the prep - so I broke out our Nima to test for Gluten when we got home. Sure enough -- Nima tested and Nima failed - positive for gluten (notwithstanding the giant allergy alert on the ticket). Celiacs be careful here.

For celiacs with other dietary restrictions, it's important to visit when it isn't busy and when a supervisor is available to check ingredients and answer questions. There is no printed menu with a key to what is GF. If you also avoid soy, ask to see the sauce ingredients.

Only been once so far, but I'm going back. Really liked the salads, and it was easy to tell what was safe.

I had ordered with everything being labeled gluten free. Something was cross contaminated, as I found out the painful way. Therefore I no longer trust Flower Child. They used to be great for many years so I'm not sure if the kitchen education changed or something else happened. I just know that my old go to, has turned Flower Child into a never again because it wasn't safe for me.

Went to a Flower Child here and one in Austin. Creative mix and match menu with bowls and wraps and salads. Quality food and ingredients and casual, fast and tasteful environment with a farm fresh vibe. Gluten free options are many and all annotated on menu. They have a GF pita to substitute for their wrap. Their Mac and cheese is GF by default. Also offer GF muffins and brownies. Tasteful, healthy eating.

This is the 2nd Flower Child restaurant at which I have eaten. The other being in Phoenix. They make it very easy to order GF food - as well as vegan and vegetarian. The staff is knowledgeable. Food is good.

Just arrived in Dallas from Scottsdale and so excited to find a Flower Child! My favorite is the Tai Cashew Quinoa with added chicken and a side of GF mac and cheese. FC is consistently awesome! I'm moving to Philadelphia.....when are you bringing one to the Northeast?

Don't trust their "Gluten free" claim. Ate there today and now am sick. Too bad.

Easy on the GUT and easy on the EYES. By gut I mean all the foods are delicious and prepared the right way and easy to digest which is so important for all of us suffering gut issues. By eyes I mean this place is pretty like 'Better Homes and Garden' pretty and all the employees and patrons are fresh and pretty and happy all smiling. Deserts are GLUTEN FREE (what a thrilling find) and foods are carefully marked in easy to read vegan, vegetarian, GF. I wish all menus would be forced to follow their format. Finally a menu that is not a chore to order!Also employees are great to answer questions and make substitutions. I ate 'Mother Earth' salad: quinoa (instead of grains), sweet potato, portobello mushrooms, avocado, cucumber, broccoli pesto, leafy greens, lemon avocado dressing (instead of miso) and hemp seed. Soooooooo good. I want to order this again.

Went here for lunch looking for gluten-free options. Great salad choices (I had arugula with goat cheese,coconut, and strawberries) and my family had Thai cashew quinoa bowls. Both were delicious and gluten-free. Lots of other GF options on the menu too. Really cute vibe- very California. We will definitely return.

So happy we seen this restaurant and tried it. Very yummy glutenfree food. And the atmosphere is fun and it's such a pretty restaurant. The food came out very fast and they had glutenfree cookies and brownies. Needless to say we will eat here often.

New fast casual restaurant. All of the desserts are gluten-free, and so is most of the food! When ordering they ask you if you have any allergies. I tried the GF mac & cheese, sweet potatoes, Japanese eggplant, and topped it off with a brownie & it was all delicious! I will definitely be back!

Unbelievable number of excellent choices for GF including dessert. Try the Thai Cashew Quinoa bowl for a fabulous flavor combination including zucchini, snap peas shiitake mushrooms, and jalapeño. Added some roasted chicken for protein too. A+++

Many delicious GF options here. We like that they strive for organic produce and serve GT'S Kombucha on tap. I usually get the salmon with glazed sweet potatoes and sautéed spinach. My kids get grilled chicken with mashed potatoes and Mac n cheese. All of their desserts are GF too!
