Have eaten here 5 times, most recently this week, and always had a fantastic food experience. I have a dairy allergy as well as gluten issues and am always pleased by the number of options, even a dessert! Make sure you ask for their gf bread too!

This has always been an easy place for me to eat. The gluten free options are fairly extensive. I am also dairy free. That limits the options quite a bit, but there are still several options to choose. The gluten free rolls are very good. However, friend ordered the Jambalaya. Not a dish they should have on the menu...just because it was not Jambalaya!

I have eaten here many times with no issues! They have good gluten free options for kids as well as adults. Staff are knowledgeable and explain how they keep everything separate. This is a good place to eat with a large group.

Slow service and no flavor in the food.

Upon telling the server I was celiac they immediately got the manager. Who washed all items used to cook my food twice. I've never received such VIP celiac service. Absolutely amazing--yummy too

They are very knowledgeable about gluten, and their onion rolls are delicious.

Delicious gf food! The onion-baked bulky rolls are amazing and might make you cry if you've been pining for good-quality bread since going gf. The online app is terribly problematic: don't use it. You can call in as early as 9am tho they dont open until 11:30am

On 10.3.15, I ordered the Gluten free green machine pesto pasta to go. While my meal was labeled gf and with my first name, within an hour of eating, I was violently ill with obvious gluten poisoning. It became so bad, I passed out and my husband called 911. I was in the ER for hours as they attempted to control my symptoms and rehydrate. The next day, weak but functioning, I called and described my meal. Both the chef and the manager confirmed that the gf pasta should have been a penne style, while what I ate was a curly cavatapi (sp?) full of gluten. They sent me $75 gift card, as if I would ever trust them again. Not to mention that it barely covered the cost of our meal, to say nothing of copays for ER and ambulance ride. No one ever followed up with me, either to discuss how we can put checks and balances in place so this never happens to anyone else. Appalling. Please do not take your life into your hands by eating here.

The caramelized onion roll is really good, but I wouldn't go there for anything else. The fries are not GF, and the garlic mashed potatoes that I had to eat instead tasted like they came out of a box. Definitely not one of my best gluten-free experiences. I definitely will not be going back.

Super delicious! Ask for a roll and dipping sauce, and they'll bring you out a Gillian's Carmelized Onion roll! So good and they just rolled out a new GF menu with more options.

There is a separate gluten free menu with a variety of meal options, including burgers on GF buns (no fries though). They serve warm, GF onion bread when the wheaty bread comes out, and provide separate dipping sauce. They seem to 'get it' as far as preventing cross contamination goes.

Very good gluten free options. They have gluten free dinner rolls available. Only one dessert, hopefully that will change! I love NYAJ!

I so appreciate the gluten free menu with Paleo and keto options and the flexibility to substitute. The customer service was also excellent all around, from Chef Jeff to our server!

The staff was so careful when they found out we had celiac. Delicious rolls with olive oil. Loved my club sandwich. My daughter enjoyed her plain pasta with butter. The dessert was out of this world - the chocolate cake was like cheesecake consistency and fantastic! Happy to see GF beer on the menu, didn’t try it this time but will be back.

Been here multiple times and enjoyed the food. The staff is knowledgeable on celiac disease. *update- the last two times I've been here I have gotten sick.

They are not quite like they used to be. In the past, the gluten free plates were a different color, the manager brought the food over and the servers were very aware of cross contamination. The last two times we have been the servers did not know what celiac was, th food was delivered together and the plates were the same. We asked numerous times to confirm it was gluten free and it was, but the care they used to take is now gone.

I used to love going to NYAJ. Have had a few poor experiences now, at least for this Warwick location. Burnt chicken. Over peppered spaghetti sauce. Over cooked gluten free noodles. And worst of all, their endless gluten free rolls are now small, dry and don’t have that fresh baked feel or taste. And to top it off, we had poor service. I won’t be going back nor recommending it again.

I’m not sure yet if it was safe but the quality of the food is definitely not worth the price. My son found a large piece of fatty chicken skin in his nachos and it went downhill from there.

My wife and I ate there two nights in a row while visiting the area. The food was very good, and the wait staff was awesome (Big shout out to Claudia!). They really get it regarding Celiac preparation and cross contamination. Highly recommend this place and wish they would open some up in the Phoenix area!

The jambalaya is BOMB but the last few times I had a sandwich, their buns were too small to hold the contents in. Still an excellent option with a great gluten free menu. Their gluten free bread served with olive oil and parmesan to dip is however amazing.

This restaurant offers lots of gluten free options including bread and pasta. The warm gluten free dinner roll was super soft and squishy, and the carrot cake was delicious and moist. Those two items are the best gluten free items I’ve ever had. You would never know that they were gluten free. Highly recommend this place.

Separate gluten free menu but the quality has really gone down since they opened. I paid $13 for a chicken breast on a stale bun. I would recommend the jambalaya.

I don’t think I got glutened but the food is not good here and I don’t feel good after eating here—not a full celiac reaction but definitely bloated, tired etc. It’s like a 1980s menu—chicken Parmesan etc. If I were eating a meal on a layover at an airport between two long flights I would be ok I guess with the meal I had just because I didn’t get glutened but I didn’t enjoy it. Also they delivered our entrees and totally forgot our apps until we asked. It’s basically just a restaurant for people who aren’t really into food. The waiter was nice though and they seem to be careful about cross contamination. This restaurant would probably work for older visiting relatives or kids.

All I can say is AMAZING. Just went in for burgers. The buns were a little dry like most gluten free, but the flavor is good. The burgers themselves were delicious as were the mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli. My daughter got the kids meal gluten free mac and cheese which was to die for. Finished off with a piece of gf carrot cake. Our waitress was attentive, but not invasive. Manager brought my food to the table as I also have shellfish and dill allergies. I have never had this level of service outside of Disney World. Will be back, even if it is two hours from home.

Great service. I'm GF and DF. Manager came to the table because she has DF allergies too. There wasn't much for me in regard to menu items because of being DF, but from what I saw, everything GF looked good! Server and manager kept coming back to check up on me. Great job!

They have a gluten free menu. I am pretty new to this no gluten thing, only about 6 months in progress. And I'm not sure I have an issue with cross contamination at this point i haven't noticed an issue yet. This restaurant has a gluten free menu which gets me sooo excited now! Its actually a pretty wide variety of options too I didn't feel deprived at all! They brought me glute free bread too, i am not sure if its the same at all locations, but the warwick RI locations bread is bomb! I would recommend you try it for sure.

One of my favorite restaurants. Their staff understands that people truly need gluten free. Their gf bread is amazing, and the carrot cake (which is always gf) is the best. It’s my husband’s favorite cake, and he hates carrot cake. I am never disappointed.

I’ve seen great reviews about this restaurant, but I honestly wasn’t impressed. I don’t think the gluten free menu was very big. They advertised as having gluten free chicken parmesan, but all it consisted of was chicken with some melted cheese on top. The food was bland and lacked flavor. There are better places than this to go for gf dining.

I ordered take out, and there were so many options! The food was delicious. I’m not sure if the bread roll I got was GF so I didn’t chance it, but it looked good! Edit: came back to eat, the roll was amazing!! Such good dip too.

OMG the Gluten Free bread is SO yummy! So soft, delicious and spongy... not dry and crumbly like most GF bread. The GF Chicken Piccata was Awesome!! They have a separate GF menu (orange) with lots of GF options... even Dessert! I posted photos but not sure where they went.
