  1. Another lovely night out at Pura Vida!! Something good for everyone at the table! Peanut Soup as always was divine, a beet salad and entree of Butternut Squash Risotto. Took a couple tastes of one of my fellow diners Marshmallow Ice Cream to finish off the dinner.

  2. Limited but luscious options from tonight’s menu at Pura Vida. Options included an African Peanut Stew and a Beet Terrine from the starters. From the Main options, Lamb Striploin, Beef Tenderloin or Blackened Scallops. Many of the sides from the menu are prepared gluten-free and desserts included a Peach Crisp in a gluten-free preparation. Everything was served beautifully as is typical at P.V. with the service being extraordinary! Definitely will return often – the non gluten-free diners with me commented that this one of the best restaurant meals they had ever been served including the vegetarian gluten-free option that was enjoyed at our table.

  3. We have always thoroughly enjoyed the fantastic food and superior service when dining in the restaurant, with plenty of seasonal, gluten free options available. Recently, we used their catering service for a party at our house. Chef Scott was able to create all the food gluten free at our request, and everything was phenomenal! I am not usually able to eat much at large get-togethers, so it was a great change to be able to relax and eat everything in sight! They have great knowledge of gluten free ingredients and safe handling/preparation methods. The flavors of the menu were bright, complex, and memorable, and included hors d’oeuvres, salads, sides, 3 main dishes, as well as dessert . This was by far the best event we’ve ever hosted or been to, and I would not hesitate to highly recommend them. We can’t wait to use them for our next event-and may have to invent an occasion to do so even sooner! And, oh yeah, they also left our kitchen cleaner than when they started!

    1. Thank you for your post to the webpage! Your news on Pura Vida is very exciting to hear. I have attended the Gluten-free Wine Tasting Events in the restaurant in the past and they were wonderful. It has been very disappointing that these have ceased being offered.

  4. We have always thoroughly enjoyed the fantastic food and superior service when dining in the restaurant. Recently, we used their catering service for a party at our house. Katie was a pro at organizing the entire event. She is extremely organized, detail-oriented, and dedicated, and worked with us from beginning to end to ensure that all of our needs and wants for the party were met. She exceeded our expectations in every way, and the party was a huge success-thanks in great part to Katie and her staff. Much gratitude and kudos also go out to Chef Scott and his staff for a marvelous menu that received many, many complements from our guests. He was able to create all the food gluten free at our request, and everything was phenomenal! I have Celiac Disease and am not usually able to eat much at large get-togethers, so it was a great change to be able to relax and eat everything in sight!
