    We've been here a few times as it's a good reliable place. The best time to visit is for their weekend brunch. They don't take reservations, so plan to wait but it's worth it. The chilaquiles and blueberry pancakes (with ricotta depending on the season) are always a hit with my family. They offer tofu as an egg sub. I recommend paying them a visit.

    The restaurant was packed. Hostess was friendly and helpful. Menu is ok. Food was not that tasty. Needs a little kick; seasoning, salt, etc. I had my order to go. No sure that makes a difference, but it was a little cold when I ate it.

    Found this place with this app. Went for breakfast after the Luke Bryan concert. I got the blueberry pancakes. I was very excited to try them. You get 3 big, fluffy pancakes. They were not like hockey pucks. Even though I was full I ate them all because they were so good. I would definitely eat there again. I did not have a reaction.

    What an amazing experience! Knowledgeable staff and delicious food! So much to choose from....Appetizers, entrees and dessert! We had veggie potstickers (gone in seconds) burgers with fries (bacon cheeseburger was best thing ever according to one of our kids), steak, mac and cheese (amazing) and brownie sundae and apple crisp (yum)! This was one happy gluten free (celiac) family!

    So many delicious GF breakfast options. We had a breakfast sandwich, wrap and potato hash---all gluten free and labeled as such when they came out of the kitchen to ease any worries. They were super tasty! My one compliant is that the coffee was awful, both the drop coffee and americano we ordered were very bitter.

    Great place. Very friendly and helpful to our family while visiting NYC. Restaurant was very busy for Sunday brunch but they still took time to care for our GF needs and make certain we were happy. Chicken and waffles is fabulous must have for Celiac. Where else can you get fried chicken and waffles that taste awesome?

    Hoped for the best, but....tried takeout. When we got the order home, we had received the wrong foods (we had paid more for lamb, got ground beef), didn't get the aioli sauce that was supposed to come with sweet potato fries, etc. as a result, we were afraid to eat anything because we couldn't tell if the buns or Mac and cheese were gluten free-$70 for a meal we were too nervous to eat! Won't be back!

    I've heard good things through social media about friedmans .. Had an awesome lunch there today. The servers were knowledgable and almost care free about it because they are accustomed to celiacs coming in which made me more comfortable if that makes sense. I ordered the burger with sweet potato fries (all fryers are gf) and when my order came out there was a little gluten free sign in the burger. This makes me feel very safe eating my food! Food was delicious and I will most definitely be back for more!

    Food either comes out on a different sized/shaped plate or with a toothpick flag in it. Breakfast, lunch & dinner -- I've tried many things. All delicious. They don't take reservations so be prepared to wait. Fried chicken & waffles for celiacs? ✔️😁

    Super good GF sandwiches with homemade chips! Nearly everything on the menu can be made gluten free and gluten free foods are served with a pick that clearly says gluten free on it and our waiter also asked if we needed to be dairy free. Although I don't need to eat dairy free, it seems they can accommodate that as well. Knowledgeable staff and celiac safe haven. Yum!
