    We used to go frequently since my wife is gluten free and Capitol Cider was one of our Seattle go-tos. But the food quality has significantly declined, while it seems the prices have increased. It’s unlikely we’ll go back.

    Great GF menu! Took my family and friends and my daughter has Celiac. Was a treat for her to order anything off the menu and get to enjoy foods that are impossible most of the time when we go out. Everyone in our crew enjoyed the food and cocktails. Service lagged a bit but it was busy and I’m one who appreciates NOT being rushed out of our meal anyway.

    I’ve been here three times over the last two years. It seems like the quality has gone down a bit. I did not get my cider until we’ll after my food came. The food was over done (chicken was hard and DARK brown on the edges and cheese curds were mostly a melted clump). The server only came back twice the whole meal (no refills). She never took one of my teen’s meal order. My teen was too embarrassed to ask her to come back so she just ate off our plates. I ordered lemon cake to go. Wow. Over priced for what it was a brownie sized lemon scented spongy cake that was very eggy… for $14 a 4x4 slice. I think I will try somewhere else for my next gluten free dinner.

    We arrived for our reservation a few minutes early and were told that they no longer had any tables. When we looked around we saw several recently seated parties. You'd think the whole point of reserving a table would be that they'd have a table reserved for you (i.e., a table not occupied by another guest). We were told that maybe someone would leave our table in 20-30 minutes and we should check back. So while the pictures of the food look quite nice, we never got to eat any of it.

    My partner has some pretty serious food restrictions right now, and Capitol Cider was suggested to us because of their great allergen matrix! It really helped us feel safe eating the food (and it was pretty good food too)! We had a fabulous time and would definitely come back. I will caution that depending on the restriction your options will be pretty limited, although you should be able to find something!

    I have celiac and this was the first time I’ve gone out to eat in a long time. I got their burger, which was huge and I made a big mess of it, but it was fantastic. The fries that came with it were also amazing. My dad got the pesto shrimp rigatoni, and he loved it! We also got the fried calamari to start, also very good. The only thing that was not the best, was that we sat outside, and it’s close- ish to the street and bike lane, so we def got a bit of road dust on us. I didn’t really notice until later, back at home, so it didn’t mar my experience at all. Even with that, 5 stars. It was a great first restaurant since I was diagnosed with celiac. I couldn’t have asked for anything better.

    Acceptable gluten free fare, but barely and not a good value for the price. The fried chicken was dry, and not well flavored. The fries were like bad Chili's fries. The Caesar and ranch dressings were not tasty. Neither the lemon cake nor the cream dollop tasted good. The fried fish was the only saving grace. We wanted to love this GF pioneer but it needs an overhaul.

    This is a nice casual place and is great for those with Celiac or gluten intolerance. All the food is GF. I'd describe is as good and not exceptional My only complaint is the hostess. She was rude and unpleasant to every customer. After seating us at a sticky table we requested it be cleaned. It was really gross. The entire table was sticky to touch. She informed us she could help but we’d have to wait a while. We then offered to do it ourselves if provided the supplies and she walked away. Then when our waitress arrived we requested those supplies and then cleaned the table ourselves. Service here was subpar. Also, it was not just us. Since we are near near the hostess station we witnessed her rudeness to other guests too. Maybe she was having a day, we all do, but came across that day as ill-suited for customer service.
