Great GF options. Even bread to have before dinner. Love this place.
Always a great and safe choice!
My son was given regular pasta. He took 3 bites before we realized. Terrible experience.
Fantastic bread and oil for the table. Plus clear GF options that they take seriously. Been there 3 times and will keep going back.
love it. had the bread first. then chicken lettuce wraps and a salad. it was delicious! can't wait to go back.
NYAJ has an extensive GF menu. My daughter did not like the pasta dish, but liked the GF bread brought to the table for her. Will probably try a different item for her next time.
Dedicated GF menu with many tasty options. Brought my daughter her own GF bread basket with separate dipping sauce. Was nice to see their concern for cross contamination.
Great food with great options. Yummy fresh made onion bread with a dipping sauce. Had the burger which was served on a freshly made onion roll. The roll was Soft and tasty. They even had gf carrot cake but I was too full to try it.
Thoroughly enjoyed my meal & was reassured from the start when our server came with gluten free bread & dip for both normal & gluten free bread showing their awareness of cross contamination risks. Definitely celiac friendly can't wait to go back!
This is my favorite restaurant. I have never been sick from eating there & they have an amazing menu. (You also get GF bread and your own dipping sauce as an appetizer.
We have been here 4 times and the staff is well-trained and thorough. No issues for our celiac child.
This did not go well for me. At all :(
First time visiting this chain, and I will definitely go back! Good food and good service. The server brought out gluten-free bread at the beginning of the meal, and the turkey blt with roasted root veggies was delicious.
very well trained staff. tons of options. GF bread and dip upon arrival. All burgers and sandwiches on GF buns. Grilled chicken sandwich was great.
Been here a handful of times. Sometimes the food is great; others not as good.
The 5 stars are based on food only. I really enjoy the gluten free bread as a starter. I had the burger and was delicious. Server took a min to warm up to us. He may have been having a bad day. All in all great place.
Extensive gluten free menu and very well trained and knowledgeable staff. They will ask you if you want gluten free bread brought to the table. Never had a problem there. Try the cobb salad with horseradish mustard dressing or the quesadilla appetizer which is big enough to share or eat as an entree. They have Angry Orchard Hard Cider, too, which is a great substitute for gluten-laden beers. Yum!
Awesome they will customize anything, staff is very knowledgable and they have gf bread to start you off.
Awesome GF menu with LOTs of options! Great bread before dinner! Really helpful staff! We can't wait to come back!
Awesome GF bread before meal with olive oil. Then had GF pasta corbornara. So yummy. I am definitely going back for the cheeseburger!
Our first time. Pleasant atmosphere and great service. Waitress made note of my son's allergies the minute we mentioned it. I've never felt so worry-free eating out with my son before. The waitress was knowledgeable and if she want sure, she made sure to check for us. I didn't notice any allergic reactions - unfortunately my son's reactions are delayed so they are hard to pick up on. They did have a gf menu (with a kids menu section) and gf bread that was served while we ate the regular bread - I thought the gf bread tasted pretty good. The kid's menu also came with ice cream for dessert. It was gf & ef. Only four stars since it was our first time and we'll just have to keep trying to find out if my son's allergies are ok with it.
Very nice place, I do like their bread and the burger was pretty good as well. I must say its best hot and fresh, when I warmed it up later it just wasn't the same. Great GF menu!
Great menu with lots of options. The gluten free bread before the meal is to die for. You don't feel deprived eating here, and the staff is very knowledgeable about allergies.
Love this place! And, the food is yummy. The carrot cake is amazing.
I've been here twice this spring and have unfortunately had cross-contamination symptoms both times. The first time I visited, my GF bread was delivered with obvious residue from the regular onion bread on the base of the roll - it seems like they may not know to change their gloves. The second visit, I opted to forgo the bread, but felt mildly ill 24-48 hours later, which is my usual response to cross contamination. I'm extremely sensitive, so those who are not may have better luck!!
The waiter brought me warm spongy delicious gluten-free buns and Parmesan dipping sauce - and I was in heaven! That alone was enough - so delicious! Then my hamburger in a gluten-free bun came, and I was so happy to enjoy that rare treat. The staff are very attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable. They told me the fries are not gluten-free so that was a disappointment - I hope they can change that in future. Overall, it was a wonderful experience! I’ll definitely go back!
Incredibly celiac and allergy friendly. There are few celiac friendly restaurants in Woodbridge, but this is a safe place with knowledgeable staff. They have a large GF menu, and if you say you have celiac the manager/chef will probably come by or may even wait on you. Several good experiences. Did have one waitress once who was a little off her game since it was a very busy late night and slipped up with regular bread, but I checked before eating it since I’m careful, but it was a good reminder to be extra vigilant.
I don’t know if there has been a change to the kitchen, but in the past 8 months, I have had issues with cross contamination. Twice with barley in my food, which they said was due to a cutting board to close to the gluten food, and tonight I found a piece of pasta in my green beans. The manager said chances were that it was regular pasta. I loved this place and trusted them. Love the place! They actually have a menu that has quite a few choices. They seem to understand about celiac and gluten intolerance. Each time my meal was brought out separately.
Amazing GF menu selection: appetizers, burfgers, pasta, dessert. Had a hard time choosing but went with 4 cheese pasta with added steak tips. Bread and dip were delicious.
We were excited to go here after reading the reviews but were sorely disappointed. The utensils and plates were dirty, our waters had floaters in them and my celiac daughter was ill right after she ate. She had the gf bread which a piece looked like it had some green mold on it (she didn’t eat it)and had a hamburger and fruit. Hamburger was not good and bun was average. Not impressed with serving staff either. Would not recommend d for celiacs.
Great food. This location in Silver Spring was a little chaotic. We had all the gluten free bread and cider and seafood pasta he could eat, but he was glutened and had a headache and issues within a couple of hours. No problems at other locations.
The staff takes gluten allergies/celiac disease very seriously. The manager has to personally deliver every gluten free meal ordered to ensure its safe. I had the gf bread with dipping sauce (they brought me out my own separate dipping sauce dish), Thai lettuce wraps, and the burger on the gf bun. All were delicious!!! The gf bread is really the star. I had no problem afterward and didn’t get ill!!
The food was VERY good, but service was absolutely poor. The service was poor enough that the manager got involved and comp’d our 4 person meal plus a free dessert. The appetizer bread and dip was DELICIOUS! And save a piece for the tomato basil soup. I didn’t love the rosemary mayo on the turkey club, but the sandwich itself was great. My family is all GF(true celiacs) and had the 4 cheese pasta, piccato and jambalaya with NO complaints 👌🏻 the gf carrot cake was a nice change for dessert options.
Amazing food! I'm celiac and RARELY have this many options! Separate menu with some many things to choose from - even dessert! The service was super friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Atmosphere/decor is cool as well. DEFINITELY will be coming back!
I have been here three times, and it is one of my favorite restaurants. They bring out great gluten free bread with a delicious olive oil dip. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. I have Celiac Disease and I was totally fine eating here!!
This place was great. The bread and dip was wonderful. I had the four cheese pasta. It was cooked in fresh water which a lot of places don't do. The menu had a lot of choices. The manager brought everything out to me so he knew I got it safely. I can not wait to go back.
From start to finish, you never feel excluded in the dining out experience. I love how they have gluten-free rolls as an alternative to the oil and focaccia. Servers will gladly provide you with your own oil dish to ensure there is no cross contamination. The meals are delicious and there are many choices. They take celiac seriously and it’s a great place to go with friends.
The staff is great. Have a dedicated gluten free menu. Have gluten free bread and will give you your own dipping sauce. I’ve never gotten sick eating here.
Went on Monday for lunch with 6 people including my 5 year old celiac child. Was impressed with the breadth of the GF menu. She was thrilled to have some GF bread. Unfortunately, while she was eating the GF macaroni, I realized there was a curly noodle in the middle of her GF penne. The kitchen said they think a noodle from a regular mac and cheese just accidentally slipped into her dish but I don't see how that is possible if any sort of basic precautions are being made. She woke up in the middle of the night with cramps. We will likely try another location of this chain again due to the broad options but I was pretty disappointed in their safe food handling.
It's a relief to go here, though you pay a bit more, that's no surprise. Every been several times and have always been served by the chef or very particularly by a lead server. More recently they offer a roll, which I appreciate. Pasta is great, salmon was good (a bit of an odd combo - squash, pesto, salmon), burger (yum), tried their carrot cake - they didn't let this thaw properly, it was 'ok' - a bit to sugary like some GF stuff tends to be. I don't recall getting sick, but I did have a rough morning after my most recent visit, can't be sure it was NYAJ's. I'll definitely be back there.
Twice now, I’ve been served gluten at this location. First, a burger with a gluten roll (make sure your roll has small pieces of onion, which is the GF version) and second I suspect was the pasta in the pasta al for no. Either the pasta wasn’t GF or it was cooked in the standard pasta water. They have GF options but I think they can be sloppy on the follow through. Days of suffering result!
I have never seen such a large gluten free menu offered at a restaurant before. You just have to ask for the separate menu. They even offered gluten free dinner rolls that were soft and delicious! Everyone at my table actually liked them better then the regular rolls. Waitress even gave me my separate dipping oil without me having to ask, didn't have to ask for the gf rolls either! I had a burger on a gf bun (same bread as dinner rolls) with a side of mashed potatoes. Did not get sick at all. Our waitress was awesome and was very knowledgeable. When she brought food to the table that was not gluten free (for the others with me) she made sure I knew that it was not gf. It's the little things like this that makes eating out for someone like me enjoyable again!! Thank you! Very impressed!!
Not only is the gluten free menu amazing but the servers are ALL knowledgeable about celiac and extremely helpful. We love eating here and have never had a bad experience!
staff is very knowledgeable! they're gf food is amazing! I always feel safe and full after! no anxiety or belly issues! love nyaj's! they're the best!
Great selection of food! Staff was extremely attentive! The bread and dip to start the meal! Amazing!
Good food with no issues
