    I experienced Ellen's Stardust Diner about a week ago with a school group. Due to being with a large group, we were asked to preorder of a condensed menu. We are gluten free and the only options initially available to us was gluten free pasta with chicken. We were unable to get an answer prior to visiting as to if the pasta was cooked in divided pot with wheat pasta, so we asked for plain chicken with a side salad. This eventually turned into a salad with chicken on top per the restaurants decision. Our salads first arrived with croutons, so they needed to be remade. When the waitress returned the salads consisted of lettuce and chopped chicken. I inquired about salad dressing and unfortunately a gluten free option was unavailable. I was told they could bring me oil and vinegar so I could mix my own. I asked if the salsa was gluten free and was told yes, so that is what used in place of dressing. Overall, I did enjoy the singing and whatnot, but wouldn't necessarily go again if we visit NYC on our own as there are other restaurants we'd like to check out that can accommodate our gluten free status with more variety.

    My 13 year old had a burger. Since the fries are not GF and they do not have GF buns, the burger meat with cheese and union was all she could eat. After we asked she got two leaves of lettuce. We had to pay full price for the burger and she left hungry! Not enough food for full price!

    Pasta Primavera with chicken(GF) and a glass of wine was good and the performances were great. Limited gluten free options. Twenty-five performers have made it to Broadway in the last two years. Excellent evening.

    I was so disappointed. The food was gross, but the atmosphere and performances made it at least a fun experience.

    We ordered burgers without the buns and our server seemed to take great care with our order. They had a GF apple spice cake that was delicious. All-in-all, it was a good experience for us!

    Not worth it for someone who is GF. There are literally only 2 choices on the menu- nachos and pasta primviera. But based on the previous reviews I didn't risk it with the nachos, even though they told me it was fried in a separate fryer. The pasta was bland and had no type of sauce. Used a low quality pasta that basically just fell completely apart, and left half of the dish impossible to eat.... and is $20. The singing was cute but we were upstairs and couldn't see most of the performances. The non gluten eaters had a wide selection and said the food was "alright"

    I'm sorry to say that this diner has no business being in a gluten free app! They were super nice, but really no options. Had a salad and today I am sick:( can't have nachos, as advertised on this app because they are in a common fryer. Avoid if u can.

    We went to Ellen's after seeing Wicked. There's always a wait but it wasn't too bad. There are limited choices but they're clearly marked on the menu. I had the nachos and they were good. I did not get sick. :-)

    GF food options were terrible and the food is SO overpriced. The experience is fun but not bill.

    Super fun experience, all the staff are aspiring Broadway performers who perform one after the other. It may be loud for some but it's non-stop performance! The food was good enough, but not the primary reason to go. No GF buns but they have GF pasta and GF items marked on the menu.

    Staff was very clear on what I could and couldn't eat. But the food wasn't very good and options were kinda limited. In addition the staff sings to you while you eat. Which is fun and unique, but you can't enjoy your meal because the music is so loud.
