If you are super sensitive to gluten, Capitol Cider is the place for you! Their kitchen in 100% gluten free. Their cider is 100% gluten free. They also have a full bar that I do believe, is 100% gluten free. It is also a gorgeous space upstairs with booths and room for groups large and small. The downstairs is even more intimate. There are candles, a full bar, and a stage where there is often live music being performed. It is a great place for dinner with the family or a date night. I really cannot say enough wonderful things about the place.
It is located on Capitol Hill, hence the name, on Pike St. The parking is not awesome, but you can find a spot a couple blocks away. It is totally worth it for the food.
The menu is clearly labeled for other food sensitivities as well. It doesn’t even say gluten free on it, because everything is gluten free! They have lots of vegetarian options as well as a few vegan and dairy free options. The menu has both large and small plate options so it is easy to just have a light dinner or a full meal. They have gluten free vodkas and other spirits as well as their many ciders. They also have desserts and even dairy free desserts!
I got the lamb ribs and french fries. It was expensive, but it was amazing! The lamb and sauce was so delicious although the portions are small. The fries were amazing! I am a french fry fanatic so I do not say this lightly. They were hand cut potato fries, again 100% gluten free. We got a cider taster with three different kinds of English cider. It was alright. Admittedly cider isn’t really my thing and I don’t drink much in general. The cider tasted more like beer than most ciders I have tried and was definitely more bitter than I like. However, just the experience of trying it was worth the money.
Capitol Cider is not cheap. For the two of us, I went with my wonderful husband, it was almost $75 before tip and we didn’t order a crazy amount of food. However, if you are looking for a great date night place with food you won’t have to worry will send you to the bathroom later this is the place for you. I know that can be TMI, but let’s face it sometimes eating out is a nightmare. This place was like the best dream ever.
I am not affiliated with Capitol Cider at all, I just truly love it. You can see their menu online here: http://capitolcider.com/food/dinner/
Or just look them up, they also have events that look like a lot of fun so I will definitely be back!
