    Waitress was helpful, but food came from a teenage food runner, not the manager or my waitress who I think said "no soy included" and ran away. I had to flag down my waitress to make sure the kitchen got the gluten allergy. She did, but still no manager. Food was gross. Chicken was like rubber. This is the first time I've ever sent my food back in a restaurant and it was my birthday. I've been to other locations and had better luck, but I won't be returning here.

    Many excellent GF options and the staff always understands "celiac" and "need to be very careful" and I did not have to belabor the point. LOL Had a giant family birthday party here back in January (i was visiting again) and 3 of us are GF. Ease in ordering, careful attention to prep....and good food. Love the Joe's. Wish I had one near me in NY.

    If I could give this restaurant 100 stars, I would! Impressed from the moment when we walked in the door and were automatically offered a gluten free menu. When we sat down, the waiter noticed the gluten free menu and asked if I had an allergy and explained that they clean the kitchen station and use clean utensils to cook the gluten free items. All of the staff was extremely friendly and personable. The manager, Will, was a very nice gentleman and made sure that we were happy with our food. The gluten free bread and dip was absolutely delicious! I had the chicken picatta and it was very good as well. This will be our go to when we are in the area!

    My wife and I went there for lunch. My wife has Celiac and it is often very difficult to dine out on Cape Cod for that reason. This place was great, starting with a dedicated Gluten free menu. There are many excellent choices. The waitress, nothing that my wife had the gluten free menu asked if we wanted bread and informed my wife that they had gluten free roll if she would like that. Two different servers brought the bread and roll to the table with different shaped dishes containing their dipping sauce so as to avoid cross contamination. The same routine was followed when presenting the entrees. They definitely pay attention and the food was great. Bravo for the attention to detail.

    Went there for Mother's Day with my Family. I told them I had celiac and waitress was on top of it, she informed manager and cook staff. I asked for gluten-free bread and within minutes, a different server came over and put bread on the table stating "here is your gluten-free bread". It was regular bread....... waitress and Manager both apologized but that doesn't fix the problem ......will never go back. Besides all that, Service was awful!

    I'm new to the gluten free world. I don't have celiac but I'm very gluten sensitive/intolerant. Who knew. This place is great. Decent options on the menu from bread with a dipping sauce at your table through dessert. I just finished eating so I don't know about any cross contamination issues. They were very knowledgeable and friendly.

    LOVE NYAJs! It's one of the very few places that offer GF bread (and its caramelized onion bread that's served warm with my own dipping sauce). Their menu changes which gives new foods to try. I attended a GF 6 course wine pairing at the Glen Mills site and loved sampling more foods with other Celiacs and those with NCGS. I rave about this place at the NJ Celiac Support Association #9 support group.

    So, I did get glutened here, but I really don't think it is something that normally happens. That is why I am still giving them a 4 star. Ordered the Ahi Tuna Wontons. Someone in the kitchen made a mistake and they put regular soy sauce on it. They actually caught the error, but not in time. The manager came out asked me how sensitive I was. I have celiac, so, pretty sensitive. He was very upset that it happened. Our whole meal was free and he took my number to call me the next day to see how I was. We are always taking chances when we go to any restaurant. I really appreciated their honesty and they really could have not said anything to me at all, butnthey made a point to come and talk to me and I was really disappointed, but I could tell they were all very disappointed too. Even the server was so apologetic. I would still recommend this place, but if you get any Asian flavored food, make sure it is GF soy sauce. Side note: The GF onion bread and oil dip is amazing.

    I got a carry-out and the pasta was already cold when I got it and the chicken was just a big over-cooked slab. The sauce was really salty and they put the potatoes in the same compartment so it was drowning in salty, lemon sauce.
