    The staff seemed very knowledgeable, and even had a gluten free tag on my food. Unfortunately the gf avocado toast that I ordered made me sick anyways. Very disappointing.

    I went to this restaurants based on the reviews here and I’m glad I did. There were 4 of us that were gluten intolerant. I had the fried chicken on the giant waffle. Delicious and indulgent. We also ordered appetizers: vegetable potstickers (dumplings) and spinach dip with chips. Drinks were small but good. Service was really good. We will be back.

    I literally flew back to New York from Colorado to eat here for my 49th birthday! I ate GF pot stickers! GF Cheddar Cheese Waffles with Jalapeño Honey and GF fried chicken! GF macaroni and cheese and I added bacon! My husband and I ate here 2 out of our 3 nights in New York (would have eaten here the 1st night, but we arrived in NYC at 11:30 and they close at 11 - seriously worth the trip! 99% of the menu can and IS made GF - the chicken and waffles ARE GF! And so good that even gluten eating customers love it :). We need this Resturant in Colorado!!

    Great choices! Herb fries and fish tacos were a treat, sauces were made fresh and healthy. I am refueled, satisfied and no tummy issues! They also deliver.

    Place was packed at lunch time, so I picked up a chicken shawarma salad for takeout and it was delicious! A little on the pricey side ($21 for the salad and an iced tea) but it is NYC after all! Would definitely go back.

    Very good food, friendly and efficient service. Totally celiac friendly. Really a gluten restaurant with a few gluten options kept totally separate to avoid cross contamination. Daughter of the owner has celiac. A treasure, highly recommended.

    I have dined here many times, and now order lunch to be delivered from time to time. No issues. Every single item on the menu can be made in a GF version - including the Mac & Cheese which was delicious. They take every precaution and really get GF right! Highly recommend.

    This has become our favorite neighborhood restaurant. Some of the best dishes are only made in gluten free versions including, unbelievably, the outstanding chicken and waffles.

    I've been here for brunch and dinner. The restaurant is cozy and comfortable, and the food is great. A great option for upper Manhattan.

    Great staff and great gf options. Only complaint is that the prices are a little steep for brunch -- but it's without a doubt the best brunch in the area. Skip Community, eat here. Looking forward to when they start having more seasonal options, like the other Friedmans outposts.

    Like its sister restaurants downtown, this new branch of Friedman's Lunch in Morningside Heights near Columbia is excellent. Nearly everything on the menu is or can be prepared gluten free. Good wine, good food, very knowledgeable and helpful servers.
