    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.

    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.

    My very first restaurant experience after my celiac diagnosis was at the Glen Mills, PA location. Our server immediately noticed my GF menu and was kind, knowledgable, and helpful. He made recommendations (which I followed) and the food was delicious. I had the grilled chicken caprese. The food runner delivered my food by saying "here is your GF chicken caprese," which I appreciated. From start to finish I felt as though my allergy was being considered and taken seriously.

    NYAJ is one of the few chains I feel confident eating at when traveling. This location was no exception; friendly staff and seamless accommodation. Waiter brought gf bread to the table with a separate dipping sauce dish without being asked, and a different person brought out the gf meals separate from the regular ones. Would have been five stars if the sandwich was as good as I've had at other locations. The grilled chicken was a bit dry and there was a single pale tomato slice instead of the sundried tomatoes advertised. Still, I'm always happy to be eating somewhere safe!

    Kudos for having a GF menu, but very confusing when I ordered off it and the waitress told me someone might come out to tell me they can't make the meal. Luckily that didn't happen, but stressful and embarrassing when eating with non-GF diners... Don't want to draw extra attention to my dietary limitations. The chicken caprese I had was good, but left me hungry. As a very small woman, that never happens to me.

    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.

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 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.

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.

    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!!

    Every time we eat here they manage to screw up our order. I know it's hard to be picky but if you're going to bother with it, at least eat there rather than get takeout; you may end up waiting a half an hour but at least they can fix their mistake if they make one (they will). Whether or not the new dish is any good is a crap shoot.

    I wish I had a gluten tester like the other reviewer, because after eating here I ended up becoming VERY ILL for a long time and the only thing I could think of was they must've fed me straight up gluten. Yes, the way they behave in the front of house make you feel safe, and the gf selection is huge, but whatever is actually going on in the kitchen is NOT safe for Celiacs in my opinion. I don't think I've ever been sicker in my entire life like I was after eating here. I struggled with writing this review, but I feel like reviews like this are important because places like this are why I never eat out anymore.
