    We ate at two different branches and both were fantastic. Food comes labelled as the GF one and staff knew what they were doing. Recommended.

    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.

    Not only was that staff knowledgeable, but my daughter loved her GF Chick n & Waffles. So many options and all good, plus Nima testing bears out the GF claims.

    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 had a reaction - not a big one, but still not safe for ppl with celiac disease. I had the fried chicken and waffles w a hot chocolate. Do NOT recommend.

    Amazing gluten and dairy free meal. Mark, our server, was helpful and knowledgeable! The Korean chicken wings and fried artichoke hearts almost made me cry! It’s been so long since I have had food that was so tasty and gluten free!

    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.

    AMAZING GF MENU. This is the first place that I've eaten at since my Celiac diagnosis where I felt 'normal' again. I was able to share sides with others at my table and was not afraid of getting glutened. They offer GF buns and several GF deserts. Great food.

    This restaurant never disappoints. Only a couple items have gluten on the menu. Staff super knowledgeable. One of few places in nyc where I have gotten a food fresh salad. Fried chicken delish as is the tuna melt.

    Great food, almost everything is gluten free! For New York food, the price isn’t outrageous and everything we had was delicious! We ate here twice and I didn’t get sick either time. Very safe for celiacs and anyone with a gluten sensitivity.

    Hmmmm to go to a gluten free restaurant ( where they clearly advertise GF on the huge banner above the front door ) to be told they “sold the last GF bagel”...I’m disappointed . For anyone willing to go there on your own, it’s INSIDE the Edison hotel, just FYI.

    Got the gluten free French toast. Most everything on the menu can be done gluten free. Staff was knowledgeable and food came out marked as gluten free. French toast wasn’t that great, especially for the price, but I didn’t get sick. I’ve made better at home with Franz gluten free bread, so maybe I’ve just gotten picky since finding really good gluten free bread! Lol

    An amazing place if you are gluten free. All but two items are gluten free. It was very good gluten free food. I had the French toast and my boyfriend who loves (non gluten free) fried chicken very much enjoyed his gluten free fried chicken. I would recommend coming here for plenty of gluten free options.
