Respond to Review of Falafel Bistro and Wine Bar
by Michael X. James
Review: Located near Tunies grocery store in Coral Springs (check out Tunies, they give Whole Foods a run for their money), Falafel Bistro and Wine Bar is truly a hidden gem in South Florida. As they say on their website, don't let the name fool you, this place has much more to offer than just wine and falafel. They have a stellar brunch on the weekends (both Saturday and Sunday) that features gluten-free, vegan french toast (among other things). I'd certainly recommend getting this item as it is both rare to find and deliciously prepared. It comes with vegan whip, fresh fruit and date syrup. So good. The falafels are amazing. They have the standard or a few gourmet options (the cranberry ones are very good). Service can be spotty at times. One time there were understaffed but everyone was polite and doing their best. And another we had a waitress ask if we didn't want tomato because she thought tomatoes had gluten in it. An honest mistake in most restaurants but a place offering gluten-free options should have staff that is a tad more informed. Overall though the servers are nice and it's not something that detracts from your experience. Oh, and get the cauliflower appetizer...it's awesome.
