    Great gluten free options! I asked the hostess if they have a separate menu, and they do. She also told me she would let my server know to bring me gluten free bread. The bread was delicious and soft and they gave me my own separate dipping plate which shows how knowledgable they are about cross contamination. I had chicken piccata as my main and it was delicious. Will definitely be back! Service was excellent and very friendly.

    We called before choosing to go there. And we got Amy the manager on the phone. Explained I have celiac and she knew exactly what it was and assured us they take all necessary precautions. She told us to ask for her when we got there which we did. We had a great waitress in Jen who also was well versed with celiac and cross contamination. They took our order ( best chicken sandwich since I have been diagnosed) brought to the chef made sure chef did all proper procedures! They had Titos for a drink and they were so kind they gave us a free gf and dairy free dessert sorbet with fruit. DELICIOUS! Felt very comfortable because they made me feel comfortable. It's about an hour away from home but I will make the trip back! Thank you Jen and Amy. Ask for them if you go

    Great gluten free menu, and even a great kids GF menu. My son loves their GF Mac and cheese! They even bring out GF bread if you ask for it.

    I've ordered most everything on the GF menu and it's delicious! There are many choices, including seafood, chicken and steak. The guacamole appetizer is fantastic! NYAJ takes GF eating very seriously, so I know I'll never have any issues.

    Special GF Menu had a good variety. Everything was delicious. I'm also Dairy Free and the staff was careful to let the kitchen know this. My plates were even delivered separately by the manager so that I would feel comfortable knowing it was handled especially for me versus the rest of my table. Definitely recommend this place

    We told the server my daughter had Celiac and she just said ok, manager never came over. They do have a good size GF menu but because it felt too relaxed about her Celiac I am nervous about how it was prepared.

    The food/service was so good here, the manager came over and told us what went through in the kitchen. The GF bread was awesome and the regular food was amazing. The food came fairly fast and they definitely knew what gluten free is! The best part is that I didn't get sick after. 5/5

The gluten free rolls are awesome and most of the time they bring them to me without me even asking! I see that they recently added gf carrot cake to the menu, too!

    2nd visit was extremely disappointing starting with hostess. She forgot to tell our waitress about us ( my 7 year old) being gluten free. The waitress was nice & started out helpful. We ordered a garden salad with steak over the top (from the gluten free menu & a big discussion about dressing). The order came out of the kitchen completely wrong & covered in croutons. Disappointed she didn't notice before it left the kitchen. We sent it back & my husband jumped up to remind her not to just transfer the steak to another salad. That is exactly what the waitress & manager were doing...with their fingers. He opened the door to the kitchen & said no way am I accepting that salad. Make a new one. Ok they sent out the new salad with the steak raw. Barely grayed on the outside. I didn't even want to send it back...felt like I couldn't trust them. My husband & I were pretty angry at this point. Even asked the manager if that was how he would serve his 7year old a steak. We paid our bill & while leaving my husband expressed our disappointment again. The manager apologized and gave us a $50 card to come back. it's a nice gesture but how about retraining yourself & the staff. No this was not during a busy time it was the middle of the afternoon on a Sunday.

    Food wasn't great, booster seats and table was super sticky and bathrooms were gross. Those sort of things make me concerned about overall cleanliness and cross contamination. The gluten free carrot cake was the only thing good about this place.

    Chef serves the gluten free per their menu NOT! Gluten free burger served with non gluten free fries. Burger moved to new plate to avoid contamination too late! The fries were already in contact with that burger. Horrible experience and manager voicing nothing but oh my that's bad!

    I went to the one in Needham, MA. They have this amazing warm GF roll with carmelized onions baked on top (it reminded me of a biali). It was amazing. They gave me one to eat while waiting for my food and my chicken sandwich was served on one as well. It was delicious!! Although they should offer a separate plate of dipping oil and garlic. I shared the same one that my husband dipped into w his bread thinking I was staying on my side of the plate. Not good, dumb on my part for not asking. The wait staff are not allowed to bring any GF dishes to the table, so there is no cross contamination or mistakes. The chef brings it. Great place. Great service.

    Loved the GF bread and oil here! Don't get the Ahi tuna roll, it comes out hot. So weird. My server didn't know what gluten was since he was too concerned to give me the bacon I ordered for my cheese burger and asked me if I was sure I could have it. At least he was concerned.
