Ate here recently. So much choice for celiacs on the menu, went for the chicken sandwich and cup of tomato soup, both delicious! Will definitely be back to sample other menu options before we leave NYC.

Service was amazing and the food was delicious! We have 2 out of 4 in our family with celiac so it was the perfect place for all of us to eat at. Banana bread and potstickers were so good! My daughter loved her gluten free French toast and my husband enjoyed his gluten free chicken and waffles.

We had breakfast. Waiter was well aware of gf options. We had chocolate chip pancakes and sides. The pancakes had some chocolate flakes sprinkled on top, not actually chocolate chips in them. Other sides were bland. Waiter was nice, but busy and we never got the ketchup we asked for. Ambiance was fun.

French toast was amazing!! Food came out specifically marked gluten free. I heard several other patrons mention to their waiters that they have celiac, so it must be a popular stop for celiacs. Service was very friendly.

Long time customer of their other locations. Had the fried chicken and waffle here. Great waffle but atrocious fried chicken—dry, overcooked, flavorless, and skimpy serving of quarter breast and one wing. It seemed to have been long pre-cooked and reheated by flash frying. Our host was wonderful and swapped our chicken, which was slightly less unacceptable. I’m a longtime customer of their other locations and this experience was disappointing. Upside—no gluten reaction. Perhaps they’re still getting used to in-person dining again….

I had eaten here safely twice before, but I was glutened terribly last Friday. I ordered the fried chicken and waffles, and I believe it was the gluten free waffle because of how it looked and tasted, but either the fried chicken was not gluten free or there was some serious cross contamination. I felt light headed immediately after eating, followed by nausea, vomiting and diarrhea that night. Now the joint pain is starting so I am 100% sure it was gluten and not food poisoning. This is too bad because this is one of the few places I had trusted, it makes me feel like an idiot for ever leaving my house..
