    Had the rueben off the Sunday brunch menu and it was good. Almost everything on the menu can be made gluten free. The guy next to me had the gluten free fried chicken sandwhich and he really enjoyed it.

    Staff is very knowledgeable and had a separate fryer for fried foods. I had a burger in the first day I was here and it came out non gf, but they quickly remade me another which was safe. Came for breakfast on a different day and ordered the eggs benedict on potato pancakes. Very good and no problems! They mark the food with GF prep as well.

    Staff was very knowledgeable. Very safe place to eat with flags indicating allergy. Toast made in dedicated toaster. Food OK and over priced.

    Nice gluten free choices! Staff very knowledge about gluten and cross-contamination. Try the burger with the french fries. It’s a normal burger but he taste heaven. Bread is very good and meat taste the same at the casse-croûte during the summer. They have gluten free beer too!

    We had brunch with son who lives in city. I had the gluten free waffles and fried chicken. It was wonderful. Ask for maple syrup. They give you something else and I didn’t like that sauce at all. But the meal was lovely! I did get concerned because the man who brought my food forgot to put the Gf stick in my meal. I verified twice that it was gf. He said yes but that he forgot to add the stick to indicate it. All was well. I will go back again!

    Like so many reviewers, we had a great meal (first visit) at Friedman’s Lunch. My son’s grilled cheese on GF bread was delicious (he has celiac), and the remaining five of us had salads, soups, and great sandwiches. Our server was a sweetheart, knowledgeable and outgoing, and we all agreed that celiac or not, we will definitely be back.

    Absolutely amazing food. Everything is or can be GF. I had fried chicken for the first time in years and it was delicious. Waffles that were perfect. Potato pancakes with salmon and poached egg equally amazing.

    I was so glad to find this location within walking distance from the Javits. I went twice for lunch during my conference and it was great both times. Service is super friendly and most of the menu can be made gluten free. You can even have fried chicken!!

    Very chic, very small, a smidge expensive. I got the gluten free chicken and waffles- I was impressed that there was not an up charge but it was $24. They have happy hour 7 days a week until 9pm which is pretty cool.

    I ordered the Asian salad and it was horrible... the chicken tasted like uncooked fish and they didnt remove the skin.... it was just lettuce, couple small pieces of chicken, red bell pepper and scallion and cost $16.00! too expensive and poor quality.

    Excellent food and service. I have eaten in all their restaurants (except the new one.) This one is the best of the three. All are good but it's the personal touches and the little things that this place does best. I have severe allergies to wheat and barley. Never had any problems and I've eaten in their restaurants at least half a dozen times

    I loved this place! The staff answered all the typical GF questions before I could even ask! Their food was great and good portion sizes too. I had the chicken sandwich with their "famous bacon jam" and it was AMAZING! Their homemade potato chips were great too. Also great options for the non Gluten members in your party. Such a cute and cozy atmosphere too. Prices were a bit higher for lunch however. And FYI they stop serving breakfast at 11.

    This place was amazing. I will go here every time I'm in NYC. Almost everything on the menu is either GF or can be made GF. The night we went, there was only one thing on the menu that couldn't be made GF (matzah ball soup). We had a large group and everyone loved their food: spinach artichoke dip, hummus trio, salads, chicken breast & mashed potatoes (delicious), fried chicken & waffles with a spicy syrup (yummy and so unusual to find this GF), short rib (this was the only thing that I felt was just good, not incredible). Everything GF came out with a little flag in it that said GF, so I felt very comfortable eating there. Our server, Brooks, was fantastic. For dessert they have ice cream sandwiches and the cookies are GF too! It's been 5 days since we ate there so I feel pretty confident that I didn't get sick. Loved, loved, loved this place!

    Love that almost anything can be prepared gluten free. Pancakes were fluffy, tasty, and tender. Went back a second day and was great to eat a breakfast sandwich for once! Wished I had a Friedman's in my hometown!

    Our favorite gf restaurant!! 99% of the menu can be prepared gf (in a separate kitchen). Herbed fries are the best. Good atmosphere, excellent service. Brunch menu is exactly what you crave at brunch. Fried chicken and cheddar waffle, chilaquiles, pulled pork Benedict, grilled salmon salad - all gf, all delicious. Those fries, though!

    Outstanding! Everything we had was delicious. Even the picky kids were oohing and ahhing at the food.The staff are knowledgable, friendly, and they were incredibly kid friendly. We had a kid accident at the restaurant and they treated us with such kindness. This had nothing to do with gluten free, but their kindness made it my favorite place on our trip.
