Another couple and my husband and I had dinner last night at Cafe Poca Cosa. Because of previous reviews, we looked forward to a great Mexican meal. The restaurant is very pleasant inside and the service was excellent. The food, however, was a disappointment. The...More

This is a beautiful restaurant in an unlikely location - under a parking deck! It had been recommended by friends, and the food was delicious. Very ample portions of the entrée (try the two different moles) and a beautiful heap of salad in the center.

Four of us enjoyed an evening meal and the food was very good but did not live up to some of the reviews that I have seen. I'll give it another try and see if I am more impressed the next time.

This restaurant is all about well prepared fresh food, a stylish contemporary dinning room and top notch servers. The fact they serve Mexican food is minor to the experience. No smashed beans covered in melted cheese served in a room decorated with pictures of bull...More

I have an incredibly difficult time finding desserts. This place has the most amazing chocolate dessert I've ever had and you would never know it's vegan. They also have fresh cupcakes daily in different gourmet flavors. You can call ahead and order in advance for...More

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.

They have a very limited menu so I wouldn't be surprised if there aren't gluten free options, but I have no idea.
