    Absolutely amazing food for celiacs and non-celiacs alike. They're super knowledgeable and almost anything on the menu can be made gluten-free! I got the Friedman's burger with the herb fries, and I would definitely recommend it! Would give more than five stars if I could.

    Fried chicken and waffles! So rare to find. Felt very confident in Friedmans, no concerns at all about cross contamination.

    I came here for dinner and breakfast and the food is phenomenal. Almost everything is gluten free and they are extremely knowledgeable. I had a wonderful salad for dinner AND fries! For breakfast I had eggs with toast and my mom ordered pancakes that were delicious. Highly recommend. We never had to wait for a table and the food came fairly quickly!

    Excellent! The menu does not indicate which is gluten free, but everything on the menu can be made gluten free except the matzo ball soup. The chef at this location has celiac disease. Had the Reuben sandwich and the fried chicken sandwich. Both were delicious! No reactions!

    Went for lunch before a matinee and worked out great. By noon it was filling up but not bad. I liked this Friedman's much better than the one in Chelsea Market. I'd go here over Senza next time (we went there for dinner).

    They advertise that they have an extensive gluten free menu which they do. However please beware - all of their gluten free bread items; bread, bagels and buns contain dairy. Since a dairy intolerance is so common with celiac individuals I was surprised at this. They had no non dairy gluten free bread options for sandwiches, toast, etc.

    The staff really knows what they are doing and made sure to tell me 99% of their menu is gluten free except for a few items that they told me to avoid. I am very sensitive and did not have a reaction. It was so nice to know that I could eat at a restaurant and feel completely at ease.

    My favourite place to eat in New York. So many options and almost everything can be done gluten free including the fries. They ask for allergies before placing an order and everything gluten free comes out with a flag on it. Are there every morning for breakfast and the rest of my group who are not celiac also loved this place. You have to visit here!

    AMAZING!! 99% of the menu is gluten free. Owners are celiac and have taught their staff extremely well. We went 4 times in a week in NYC. Fried chicken and waffles was awesome. They even have tons of desserts. I had key lime pie. Breakfast is a must. If you are celiac, you HAVE to go to Friedmans!

    Almost the entire menu is gluten free! The staff is friendly and the food is delicious! I got a lamb burger and fries. For Celiacs, we know how big of a deal it is to be able to order a full and “real” meal. Highly recommend!

    Practically everything on the menu is GF. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. They do get busy for brunch- but no reservations required. The prices are very reasonable. I will definitely return. We need more restaurants like this.

    Came here for a later dinner, we got in right away.. tried to go on a Sunday morning, and the wait was an hour.. I guess you have to go at off peak times or you are going to wait outside for a long time. I ordered the fries and the poke bowl, poke bowl was ok, fries were amazing! Staff was great! There was only one thing on the entire menu that wasn’t gluten free. I can’t wait to go back and try other items! I had no issues feeling sick, I am celiac. Would definitely try this place!!!

    When I asked for the GF menu I was told only 3 items on the menu were not GF, what?! Needless to say I was excited. My meal was delicious the the staff was courteous and food came out promptly. The best part...DESSERT!! As a celiac I'm often left out in the cold (literally) with ice cream and not other yummy baked sweet treats on the menu. I was floored when the waiter said ALL the desserts were GF. I was not disappointed, a delicious lava cake with a spoon of vegan ice cream. My gluten eating family was equally satisfied. We will be back.

    Only two items on menu were not gf free . Server seemed annoyed at me for asking so many questions about being gf but I have to ask. Chicken and waffles were amazing and the wings were so good. I would go back again!

    I had a fried chicken + waffles. I have celiac disease and this was probably the best glutenfree meal I ever had on a restaurant. My wife ordered a grill steak tacos which also was glutenfree and it tasted like heaven!

    I alerted our waiter that I have celiac disease and was assured my meal would be prepared accordingly. I received a burger on a regular bun. When I asked our waitress, she sent it back and they placed the same burger on a gluten free bun. I had to ask them to remake it as I could not eat the same burger on a new bun due to cross contamination. I left feeling sick and disappointed. Especially for a restaurant that advertises gluten free so heavily they should have done better.
