    I hate to be the person leaving a negative review, especially because I've eaten here many times before safely, the food is tasty and the waitstaff is great. However, last Friday I got really sick about ten minutes into my meal (fried chicken on the dinner menu). I've got celiac and unfortunately I'm quite sensitive to cross contamination, This was definitely my typical gluten reaction. I was sick for the next two days. Like I said, I have eaten here many times before safely. I guess it just shows that even a celiac-friendly place can mess up -- any time you dine out, you are taking a chance. :(

    I was so excited to try Friedman's, but they glutened me badly. Not sure what went wrong.

    Staff extremely friendly and knowledgeable about food allergies and intolerances. They even used a gluten free toothpick sign to mark my food to make 100% certain it did not get mixed up.

    Food was absolutely outstanding! Only one item on the food menu is not gluten free. I had the vegetable dumplings as a starter and for an entree I had the fried chicken with waffles. The best gluten free restaurant I've ever been to!

    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. If you go for lunch or dinner they have a great veggie bowl (vegan) that you can get over rice or quinoa that's delicious. You can add tofu, but I've gotten a couple times without.

    Amazing restaurant, attentive staff who were really switched on. We had just landed from an 8hr flight and been on the go for 24hrs, long transfers and our body clocks were way out. Recommend to try the chips with spinach and cheese dip - Amazing. Burger was more than perfect and the homemade tomato soup was the best I've ever had. Our 15yr old has the allergies but we all eat the same, he said it the best place he's ever eaten in and I would agree. He's not been ill either (THANK YOU TO THE CHEFS AT FRIEDMANS). It's not cheap at all but worth every penny.

    Fantastic food. I ate here twice while in NYC, and had the fried chicken sandwich with fries the first time, and the chicken and waffle the second time. Both meals were delicious, though the waffle got soggy quickly, and the fact that nearly everything on the menu can be made gluten-free is awesome. Easily the best GF fried chicken I have ever had!

    Food is amazing. Service is diner service.; so-so. Celiac and cross contamination awareness is stellar. (Thus the 5 stars) Celiacs looking for a safe, great tasting meal, this is a must. Just be patient with the service.

    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!
