Upscale and creative menu, extremely crowded. Unusual dishes, some good, others not so much. Waited a while for a table even with a reservation. Disappointed considering the rave reviews and crowds.

Everything is very good. We usually go for the chefs choice. It’s a generous sample of 3 entrees. If there’s something you don’t want, tell the server and it won’t be included.

To be honest I don't know. You may want to call them. I don't believe the meal I got even had any gluten. It's all meat and vegetables. Maybe the rice and tortillas probably have gluten. I would call them.
