We will definitely be going back on our next visit. There are many vegan and vegetarian options as well as gluten free. The bean burger wrap was delicious as was everything else that we all ate.

Went as a group for business. Love the cocktail menu to start. We had dinner including apps, main course and dessert. Large portions and delicious food. Nice size place and not loud despite its openness.

They have vegan options. . . not so sure about gluten free. I asked for gluten free bread and they had none. They do juicing before 3pm. That would be gluten free. . .and vegan.
