Fantastic hole in the wall location / the staff was very knowledgeable and they explained well that of their locations this has a much smaller kitchen so there is more risk of cross contamination - they made provisions by specifically cleaning the griddle between orders which they said they can’t always do during a rush. Food is outstanding the GF lemon ricotta pancakes are truly outstanding!

Had a fantastic brunch here today! Managed to get there right before the rush. I’m stuffed and excited to go back at some point. There isn’t a separate GF menu because everything except for about 3 items can be made GF.

Super disappointing due to (lack of) service. Lots of GF options and food is decent (though sandwich rolls are not properly stored as they were stale and fell apart on bite #1 ☹). We are all struggling with staffing shortages, but being rude and or dismissive isn’t ok. Suggest trying another Friedman’s location…

Had the artichoke spinach dip as an appetizer and a buttermilk fried chicken sandwich. It was so delicious that we ate there twice! It was so nice to eat somewhere safe and feel normal. The website states that the Friedman’s founder had Celiac. The waitstaff assured me that everything in the restaurant is gluten free except that they do offer non-GF burger buns. I let the waitstaff know that I had Celiac and needed my meal to be GF. The waiter assured me that everything on my plate would be safe. My food came out flagged as GF. Knowledgeable staff and delicious food!

A NYC gem for sure. There are 4+ locations and I’ve been to 3. It is wonderful to feel taken care of and “normal” for once.

I’ve had the fried chicken sandwich twice and a brunch option once. Service has always been friendly and accommodating, too. All good here.

Everything on their menu can be made gluten free. Three of us dined here and we were all happy with our food: pancakes, latkes, potato hash, so many options. The waitstaff is knowledgable and all GF food arrives marked with a GF flag. Their lattes are also delicious.

We were so excited about eating here based on so many reviews but it was just so so. The fried chicken was dry and flavorless. The fries had so much rosemary and thyme on them that it was nauseating and it didn’t help that the restaurant had a bad sewer odor as well. I thought the prices were high for the taste of the food. Not impressed.

I’ve lived in NYC for about 4 years and ordered from this particular location at least 20 times without any problems.

However, last September (2021) I ordered for pick-up and tried a BLT sandwich for the first time. There was a gluten free sticker on the box and my receipt clearly marked in red GLUTEN FREE, but unfortunately they had given me wheat bread. I realized it was wheat going into my second bite, but by then it was too late. I promptly returned to tell them what happened and was met with the rudest waiters/waitresses (snickering on the side thinking I couldn’t hear them calling me a Karen and other things I don’t have time to list). Finally, the manager came out and she was great—very professional and I felt she understood the gravity of the situation. Nothing was really done though and I’ve never been sicker in my life. I haven’t been back since.

I recently saw that my review was deleted, but these kinds of mistakes are very serious and I think every celiac should be aware of the risks. Proceed with caution.

I’ve been here several times over my last few year’s business trips to nyc, every time is a joy - superb service, that food though... I have celiac, and have never gotten sick here, I have shed tears in this restaurant- over how delicious a restaurant entree reminds me of life before my diagnosis over 10 years ago. Their gluten free foods don’t taste like gluten free foods. The first time I ate here I was actually scared. Haha. It’s delicious and an amazing experience. The only thing that is possibly a negative is the rude loud obnoxious tourists at this location who want the world on a platter. The staff is excellent.

I love this restaurant.

It’s my default spot for gluten free dining in NYC because it’s low key, unassuming and has a wide variety of food. And the food it serves is delicious and worthy of your time if you’re in the Hudson yards area.

I always default to the burger for dinner, but they also have some amazing salads.

The drinks are also superb and the outdoor dining area is becoming more robust.
