Gluten free Mac & Cheese with gluten free breadcrumbs. Cooked in separate water and mixed in separate bowls

Delicious! Owner told me that although the little skillets are washed three times between uses, they don't have dedicated gf ones so if you're very sensitive get your order in a to go container (you can still eat it at the restaurant). All the breadcrumbs are gluten free. I loved the Alpine, and the nosh size was just enough.

Amazing gluten free. I came in, ordered my meal. It was very easy and I felt so relaxed ordering a gluten free option as some places I feel a bit awkward after asking about gluten free. I got the napoletana it was BEAUTIFUL. I got a nosh size.. it was definitely enough! One of my favourite meals visiting NY.

Fantastic food, haven't eaten mac & cheese in a long time. The breadcrumbs are all gf, so we were told. Enjoy!

Visited 19 May 2018. Fabulous! I’m extremely reactive, and loved every gooey, cheesy, bite. They are extremely aware of GF requirements and said all sauces/versions were safe with the GF pasta. Loved loved loved it.

Soooo good. Couldn’t tell you the last time I had real Mac and cheese. Added roasted garlic to the all American, hit the spot.

Tasty, vegan and gluten-free mac and cheese.... build your own by selecting toppings.

I got the GF buffalo chicken and was told they had GF breadcrumbs, which I was skeptical about, but also stupidly optimistic and got them. I was VERY sick for the rest of the evening.

Best mac and cheese I've had by far! I had the gf cheeseburger and split it with my brother (not gf) and he said that it was the best mac and cheese he has ever had. They even offer gf breadcrumbs on top.

I have been here twice now, the first time was good but I went back and was definitely served Mac and cheese that was NOT gluten free - I felt terrible all evening and still felt the effects in the morning.

It was delicious the first three times I had it. I thought it was such an amazing Mac and cheese that I haven't had the pleasure of enjoying in a while! However, the last time I was there I was for sure "gluten poisoned"- which is the phrase I use ha. I haven't been back since. Could have been bad luck but just a heads up!

HORRIBLE- after a 1 hour and 20 minute wait I was served Mac and cheese that was not gluten free. The place was dirty, the staff was rude and lazy and people that got their 45 minutes after me had finished eating by the time I was even served. I have been throwing up for hours after eating this and I would not recommend it to anyone that has a gluten allergy or someone without allergies. Worst dining experience of my life

Service was terrible! We left no tip. But I ordered the gf parisienne. My boyfriend ordered the regular buffalo chicken. They are really good. The aromas and cheese factor was so good and stretchy.

We love S'mac and none of the three GF eaters in our family have ever been glutened here! None is a diagnosed Celiac, but I believe myself to be, and I'm very sensitive to the smallest amount of gluten....But I haven't had a problem at all. The food is superb! Best mac and cheese I have ever had! It's quite expensive, but restaurant food in Manhattan always is.

Food was excellent. Only after eating did I see that the regular pasta and the gluten free pasta are next to each other in the Bain Marie, where some serious cross contamination can occur. I'm still waiting to see if I have a reaction, but, as a celiac, I will not dine here again.

I haven't eaten in the restaurant - yet - but have had it delivered twice. The four-cheese gf mac and cheese is mouthwateringly good. Will definitely have it again during this NYC visit, and probably every visit from now on.

Smac used to be an amazingly fun dining experience. Unfortunately, the quality of the restaurant has gone downhill in recent years. Still serve good gluten free Mac and cheese, but I do not believe they are as careful as they should be based on the cleanliness of the restaurant.

Cheese soup. Delicious but gets old after 4 bites. Also, if you're Celiac you probably have issues with casein.. They sell lactose pills but they're probably not gonna save you. Also you will smell like fried cheese when you leave.

Delicious gf Mac n cheese, but way too long of a line. Very crowded and cafeteria-like atmosphere. Will order delivery or to-go next time.

I was very disappointed in my vegan gluten free Mac and cheese. Didn't taste a thing like cheese!!

Was really exciting having gluten-free Mac and cheese! I didn't know what it would be like so I went with the American option which is just Mac and cheese but there were a ton of really cool options. The top was great because the cheese was baked and it was crunchy and hot but the cheese didnt have much flavour. I'd say it wasnt bad at all it just didnt blow me away but ill definitely try it again. Staff was really knowledgeable about celiac disease they have posters on the walls about cross-contamination. Would recommend checking it out

One of the first GF places I visited once I was diagnosed in 2009. It's a small, crowded, noisy hole in the wall that cranks out the best Mac n cheese in the city. Unique and a must visit for anyone GF.

GF / DF Mac and cheese that actually tastes awesome. This review is for the 33rd st location. Much bigger space and easier seating.

I had gluten free, cow's milk free mac and cheese and it was awesome! they had goat cheese and a vegan option available for me. I would definitely go back!

Delicious and gluten free! I ordered it while attending a business meeting nearby. I didn't order it myself but when it came it was sealed with a label that specified it was all gluten free so it appears they take it seriously.

The food was great comfort food and its always a treat to have the ability to eat mac n cheese GF without making it yourself. We didn't get sick but as others have mentioned the kitchen is very small and they serve everything in cast iron so I wonder how they know and keep the cast iron pans separate from the gluten pans.
