    I ate here a few times and was so excited about all the gluten-free options. Unfortunately, the last time, I got very sick in the restaurant almost immediately. I do not trust their kitchen practices for celiacs.

    Excellent gluten free menu. Many options that are not usually available to those who do not eat gluten.

    I love Lili's 57, and really wanted to love Lilli and Loo to have a similar menu with better atmosphere to bring friends and family... but they just didn't take my allergy seriously. My date and I both ordered a GF entree so we could share. When they dropped it off, I asked to make sure it was GF. The server said "no" then I said "but we ordered them to be GF. I'll get very sick if I eat gluten", he responded, "oh. Ok. then yes. It's gluten free then." I asked him to please double check with the kitchen, and with a huff he did so, came back and without a word swiped our plates away. Some time later they came back out, he pointed at my plate and said "Gluten free. Ok?" and I said, "both, right?". "No just yours. You are gluten free. not his." then walked away. We waited a few minutes and finally gave up and decided not to share. Turns out my date's meal hadn't even been kept warm, and had been sitting on a counter cooling for 15 minutes with they remade mine. Terrible service.

    Very large gluten free menu with tons of options! Everyone around near us ordered GF. Appetizers, soups, main entrees and sushi with tempura! Everything was delicious and reasonably priced.

    This is my go to restaurant. I'm a super sensitive celiac and have never had a problem. The food is always great and there's a lot of options.

    Hungry and walking the streets of NYC, found this little gem. Felt like it was my birthday! Had the General Tso's chicken. Hard to believe it was gluten free!! Listened to their great live music. Could not have asked for a better night.

    So good! There were a lot of options that were gluten free and staff was very aware of my needs. My boyfriends family is Asian and I was finally able to sample some of the delicious options I've heard about. I had a spring roll, pork dumplings, and a sushi roll- all tasted amazing and I had no issues after this meal!

    Great GF menu!! I'm not used to having so many choices! It was amazing to eat Asian food without having to worry about getting ill. They offer a lot of menu items I thought I would never be able to enjoy again. Gluten free crispy honey shrimp?! Be still my heart! Staff could be friendlier and the food is slightly overpriced but I plan on coming back because of the options they provide.

    About six months after being diagnosed with Celiac disease I finally worked up the courage to start going to restaurants again. Lilli and Loo was my first destination as a designated GF diner, and another six months later, I've been here at least 20 times and look forward to every opportunity I can get to return. The waitstaff immediately brings me the GF menu now instead of the regular menu, and I feel completely comfortable here. The sushi rolls (all of them) are frequent choices, but the steamed pork dumplings and sauteed chicken and eggplant are delicious as well. I normally give high marks to any restaurant where I don't get sick afterwards, but L & L is in a class of its own.

    My nine year old has celiac and sometimes the gluten free menus are super limited. Not here! Many choices, all yummy. And very reasonably priced for NYC. Definitely recommend!

    I love Lilli and Loo!! Definitely my "go to" gluten free restaurant uptown. The Tom Kah Kai soup with brown rice on the side is a meal and a feast of great flavors. I eat there with confidence and as often as possible.

    The gluten free menu here is great - so many options! They even have gluten free soy sauce if you decide to order sushi. I ordered the orange chicken and it was SO good. However, the best was desert. I ordered the pecan pie and it was to die for. I definitely suggest ordering the pecan pie if you ever come here.
