We didn't even eat because we sat there for over ten minutes with no server and looked at the menu that had ridiculous prices for almost everything. I can make good Gf pasta at home for $3, I'm not going to pay 13 just for pasta I can make at home and 17 for chicken and pasta!
Went there with my siblings and I told them I had Celiac's and they just rolled there eyes. after I got this gluten free pasta my sister had to basically carry me out. worse cross contamination I've ever had. will not go here again
I love their gluten free pasta!! I think it's cooked so well and it takes like real (non gluten) pasta! I could eat it forever! But if you want more options for being gluten free I would not choose to eat here, definitely a very limited selection of choices.
I was severely glutened here after telling the waiters I have celiac. I had to send my plate back twice because the noodles were obviously not gluten free. After all that, they charged us exta for my meal because it was gluten free!
The gf noodle are always dry. They were so disgusting last time I had her take it back and bring me chicken also not the best. They need to seriously get some better food. I am in love with their salad though! I could eat that all day
I also feel that for such a well renowned chain they are seriously lacking in the gf department. The gf noodles are disgusting. I actually had the waitress take it back and she removed my meal from the bill and also brought me more salad. So yes they made it right. But the salad is the only redeeming factor.
I don't believe that anyone at Olive Garden has tasted what they are feeding us GF customers. I had the penne pasta with marinara sauce and chicken. The whole thing was tasteless with no flavor anywhere. No season on the chicken, stewed tomatoes and undercooked pasta. The salad was excellent, but I won't be going back.
No prices on GF menu and what I got was pretty lack luster. I suspect GF pasta was cooked in same water as regular pasta. I had "issues" later in the evening. Wanted to treat my wife to a nice dinner out but my meal was poorly executed. Even the added chicken was just thrown on as an after thought and it was about as tasty as shoe leather.
I had the penne pasta with marinara sauce and grilled chicken. I thought the portion size was ok. It was about $15. It came with salad. I requested no croutons. It tasted good but a few of the noodles were crusty. I was really hoping they had an alfredo sauce and gluten free breadsticks would be a dream come true. So far no expansion in that area ; (
I had an awful experience here three years ago. I've always loved Olive Garden until then. When I got my pasta, it tasted like regular pasta so I made the waitress go back to check and she said it was gluten free. I couldn't even eat 1/3 of my food I was so full. About twenty minutes after we left i got sick. I was sick all night long and into the next day. I have not been back since.
I ordered gf rotini pasta with grilled chicken and pesto sauce. I waited 30 min for my meal( curb side pickup). I received my food and paid the bill. I opened the container and tasted the pasta. OMG!!!!! 😡😡😡 the pasta was undercooked and dry with no sauce in sight. This cost me $16. with tax. I called the server back to look at my food. She called the mngr and told her twice that I didn't like my food. I was angry. I called the mngr myself and she refunded my money. I can't understand why it's so hard. to boil pasta until it's done. The whole dish was a disaster!!!.
I have eaten here several times. The GF selection is very limited. So far I have never been ill after eating here. what I have eaten was usually good, but very basic, GF pasta with marinara. One time the pasta was tough and cold.
Perfect for my sister that has celiac
I appreciate that Olive Garden offers anything. for the longest time, they had two pasta options: primavera and marinara, plus steak or salmon entrees. the house salad is gluten free without the croutons, which is great. however, it's a bit acidic without any bread to go with it... but recently they've ben expanding the menu. the new pesto pasta was pretty good, though a whole dish of it is too much. next time I might ask to get half pesto, have bolognese (which is also a new offering). also, they just added the toscana soup to the GF list, which is very exciting!
Okay food(nothing amazing but yet again it's a chain restaurant) but awesome service. Waitress was understood celiac and food allergies. At that time they only have 2 pasta options so I went with the gluten free pasta with meat sauce. But they recently added more options. Will be going back.
Service was great but halfway through my meal, I found tons of regular macaroni shells mixed in with my gluten free rotini! I was told that the order wasn't rung as "allergy" but I have a feeling it wouldn't have mattered. Cross contamination is one thing, but actually having gluten shells in my pasta is unacceptable. The manager was nice and gave me a refund for the meal. I will not be coming back.
Miserable experience for me. Hardly any selections. My GF pasta obviously had some form of gluten. I had to rush home since I was sick after 4 bites. I tell our server we are GF and she sticks a basket of bread in front of me. Apparently, she didn't care when I said our table is GF due to celiacs. Never again!!!!!
I have eaten at Olive Garden successfully, just not this location. My daughter and I ordered dishes with gluten free rotini. Her kids meal showed up and she was eating it before I realized that it was actually the cavatappi pasta which is definitely glutinous. I was eating my shrimp scampi with gf rotini when I found angel hair pasta mixed throughout!! I'm not sure what they are doing in the kitchen but it is definitely not a safe place to eat. That said, the manager was extremely apologetic and comped our meals and then personally fixed a fresh plate for my daughter which is why they got a second star. Hopefully, they will take more care in the future but I don't think we'll be back.
While there are gluten free options, they are very limited; salad, gf rotini with either marinara or meat sauce, a steak dish and a salmon dish. There is are also kid options, but not many more than three. The national website boasts more gf options than what is actually available at this location. There is a disclaimer that they cannot guarantee against cross contamination.
Every single time I've eaten here I've been glutened. The staff is uneducated about Celiac-friendliness and there's cross contamination in the kitchen. I was served salad with croutons even though requested it without and staff seemed annoyed that I asked for a new salad. Would not recommend if you have Celiacs Disease, too much stress and you end up glutened anyway.
I ordered off the gluten free menu. When my food came it was clearly regular noodles & bread crumbs on my chicken. The server took it back but then came back to question me as if they didn't offer that dish as gluten free. A few minutes later the manager came over to apologize and said they had just updated the GF menu and it was a new dish (that nobody seemed to be trained on). They brought me out the GF noodles right away but I had to wait a really long time for the chicken while my family was already finished with their dinners. Pretty soon after I had a reaction. Not full on - but definitely some sort of cross contamination. This particular location does not seem to take good allergies seriously. I would not recommend.
Really tasty gluten free rotini. 4 gluten-free sauces and a couple of toppings. Pasta is cooked in kettle separate from other pastas and then added directly to saute pan, per company website. Aside from the pasta, there is also a separate "gluten sensitive" menu that is not appropriate if you have celiac disease. Server was very sensitive to my questions since this was my first meal out since being diagnosed and still healing.
Ordered gluten free pasta, sauce, and shrimp. Ate some of my "safe" pasta and found a gnocchi pasta in my bowl. Manager said I'd be fine because they were cooked in separate water. He obviously doesn't understand celiac. It was rolling around in my bowl contaminating my entire plate. I also had to pay full price for being glutened. The manager just simply said to call him if I got sick. IF I got sick. ugh...
I went here for a family member birthday celebration. I ordered the grilled chicken parmigiana. I requested no pasta, because I couldn't trust that it would truly be gluten free. They brought the dish with the pasta anyway. The waitress assured me it was gluten free and cooked entirely separate. I chose to try it. Still hesitated, until the manager came to tell me it was cooked correctly, they were serious about cooking safe, and he understood because he had a good friend who was celiac. They went the extra mile. A pleasant experience, food good.
I agree that the menu is pitiful. I ordered the only thing I could as a Celiac the pasta with chicken. A month later I am still sick. I will not eat here ever again. Outback Steakhouse down the road is great and I have eaten there numerous times and NEVER got sick. If you are a Celiac avoid Olive Garden! Go to Outback (they have better service as well)
Something so wrong in the kitchen. Three times now I've gone and ordered gf pasta and find remnants of whole wheat (not gf) pasta in the mix. The manager went and checked and said she watched them boil when recooking a batch. I think they reuse pots or colander and don't wash them. I understand it is not guaranteed against cross-contamination, but actually finding noodles mixed is completely and easily avoidable. Don't eat here.
After speaking with the server and explaining very very clearly what happens if I get sick and asked what precautions they take if a person has celiac disease. Seriously it was such an in depth convo about it I order and get my food. After a few bites I just knew it was NOT gluten free. When she came back and I asked her if it was gluten free she points to my dish and says oh that? No it's not. I was so angry. Angry because of how sick I get for about a month after. DO NOT go her if you have celiac disease.
no...the waiter had no knowledge of jow to handle a celiac patient. my food was brought out overcooked, so i sent it back and it came with different sides the 2nd time. By then it was too late and I had been glutened. I was sick within 15 minutes.
