We ate here with friends who come often before the Pops concert. They initially seated us downstairs. After a long conversation, we were moved upstairs. The food was fine but not outstanding. The decor is pleasant.

I had the most delicious lunch here. I had the gnocchi in a bolognese sauce. My daughter had a duck dish. We were given yummy crusty bread and excellent service. Our martinis were excellent too. Sammy's is close to Penn Station. I found it moderately...More

Their menu says "pre-theater menu." That made ME think that they were used to serving "pre=theater " dinners. The waitress and manager seemed surprised that everyone had to leave at the same time even though they are a mere two blocks from the symphony. We...More

I don't know about gluten specifically, but give them a call. As I noted in my review, they were very responsive to my wife's soy allergy and managed to find a workaround here and there.
