This long-running Iberian restaurant is as traditional as they come.The waiters are dressed in the red waiter tuxedo. The paella is fine, and the service is accommodating.

Darn....didn't live up to expectations. Food was good, sangria had not been mulled well, seemed like it was just wine dumped in a carafe with some fruit, very disjointed service with all sorts of errors. Probably won't go back. Bummer.

This meal was not cheap, but it was delicious. The room was very quiet (not even music); the waitstaff was very attentive, polite, and professional. It was the perfect restaurant for our special occasion. The meal was rich and excellent, and it came with bread...More

Sorry, but I don't know. The chef, however, is very knowledgeable and friendly, and I suspect he can help you with your gluten questions.
