Delicious fried chicken sandwich and fries! They had Glutenberg beer (IPA, Blonde Ale), and ciders. I will definitely be coming back to try the gf mac n cheese and chicken & waffles! Hubby who’s not gf had the chicken & waffles and really liked it.

Not a review but a heads up to those who rely on nima testers. The way that nima testers (basically an ELISA test) leads to false positives up to 21% of the time. You can be certain that there is no gluten if the result comes back gluten free, but if the result says there is gluten, there is only probably gluten. Not dismissing any claims of the safety of this restaurant, it may very well be that there was gluten in the food. Just be aware of the fact that Nima testers can yield a gluten result when there is no gluten to be found.

I’ve eaten here many times and always felt it was safe. However, tonight I tested my steak tacos on my Nima and it came back gluten found. Be cautious when eating here.

Loved this place. Great atmosphere and great food. Basically everything on the menu is gluten free or can be made gluten free. Staff knew exactly what we were talking about and made us feel confident to eat there. A little bit pricey but worth it. Will be going back.

It tested positive for gluten on my Nima Sensor. The manager told me that they can’t avoid cross contamination, if you have Celiac Disease.

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!!

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.

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.
