    I had the Rueben—generous portion, great taste. The GF bread was tasty. They have a separate toaster.

    The pancakes were rubbery. We thought they were undercooked but they said that’s the way they are.

    Visited 19 May 2018. Every single person working there understands GF care, and they are super friendly and nice. They’ve a separate section where all GF orders are prepped and cooked. I’m extremely reactive and had a wonderful brunch.

    Good food, fun retro decor. Knowledgeable able staff, free pickle bar. Only drawback was old school gluten-free bread, probably Udi's, resulted in a less exciting, smaller than expected sandwich (although it was nicely toasted. Seperate Gluten-free menu. I didn't get sick.

    I am visiting from Arizona and did eat here two times with no issues, they have a dedicated kitchen. This third time that I ate there, I ordered the chicken soup. And it was contaminated with their matzoh ball. It was like it fell in and they must’ve tried to pull it out quickly. I understand it’s hard to keep things separate, but I did have a reaction later that evening although mild, I will never return here again

    Lots of choice. Good service. I had the gluten free French toast with banana and choc. We would have returned had it been closer to our hotel.

    Decided to give Bloom the benefit of the doubt despite the varied reviews so had breakfast there this morning, ordered what I expected to be gf pancakes from the very sour faced waitress. They were tasteless and had to be covered in syrup to be edible, soon after leaving I realised something was wrong my stomach blew up like a balloon and the food just lay in my stomach, a sure sign for me that gluten had been ingested and sure enough the uncontrollable diarrhoea arrived soon after. Please don’t take the chance on this place like I did it’s just not worth it, totally ruined my last day visiting NYC.

    Not so celiac safe after all. Have eaten here twice without an issue but this past weekend I was sick 30 minutes after walking out the door. I don't think it was from the kitchen but from the waitress. She wasn't very neat when bringing food and drinks to the table, even touching the tip of my fork that I had to clean it before using again. Not worth returning if staff is so sloppy. Sick 2 days now, can't function and don't know when it will end.

    I love this place and make a point of visiting (sometimes more than once) every time I'm in NY - the staff is super friendly and it's so nice to be able to just eat and order normal food without a million substitutions. Also they have a pickle bar.

    Every time my family and I visit NYC we go here. We end up going almost every day of our visit for one meal or another. They are excellent about cross contamination and have the best GF selection for any time of day. HIGHLY recommend!!!

    They have a large gluten free menu with a wide variety of items. Their bread is really good and it's obvious that it toasted on its own as the non-gf toast has grill marks. I had the "Special Rueben". My daughter had eggs, bacon, fries and gf toast. Neither of us had any issues and all of the staff was great about reassuring us that everything was gf without us even asking. Their coleslaw was delicious too.

    Amazing Reuben sandwich...coleslaw was decent...potato salad-not so much...I felt like it was made from leftover potatoes that were intended for hash browns (because it was mushy) with a few red peppers and green onions tossed in...that's okay, the service and the sandwich were definitely worth the stop : )

    Good was good, but more important, the staff were super knowledgeable and responsive. If they didn't know for sure, they *immediately* went into the kitchen to ask.

    I wish I could give this place a higher rating. As far as being gluten free and Celiac safe, I give it 5-stars. Staff was very aware and careful. However, my food was really not good. Got a chicken sandwich with no bun and fries. Don't bother getting the fries. They were not cooked, greasy, really not even edible. The chicken, on the other hand, was totally overcooked and I could only cut through one of the two pieces of chicken they gave me. I gave up on the second piece and went to bed slightly hungry. Maybe ask them what their specialities are before you order. If you're in a pinch, you can feel pretty aafe eating here, but don't expect a gourmet meal if you ordered what I did.

    Had the gluten free pancakes were not very good, hard and dry. Even the home fries were bad. Wasn't worth the 20 minute walk.

    Lots of GF choices, but frankly unimpressed with the food. GF daughter wanted pancakes ($10), which were good but not the best. And only syrup was packages of Kraft maple syrup with caramel coloring as a main ingredient. Sandwiches in general started at $15, were loaded with meat but not much else. My roast beef was so big I couldn't fit it in my mouth, but was topped with only a thin slice of Swiss cheese, one slice of tomato, and a piece of iceberg lettuce. No mustard available. No pickle, chips, cole slaw, or anything to garnish. It was my most expensive lunch in Manhattan during our entire trip, and my least favorite meal. Can't believe I walked 10 blocks to eat here.

    My daughter had her best and safest GF meal during our whole trip. She LOVED the food. The rest of us enjoyed our non GF meals as well. We're going to get back there before we leave town.
