Our waiter was clueless on food allergies and kept suggesting things I couldn't eat. Kitchen seemed to know what they were doing though. My pasta dish with garlic and oil was good. My wife tried Alfredo and it was lousy.
There is an allergy menu which lists gluten allergies plus dairy, shellfish, tree nuts, and other common allergies. They have gluten free pasta that's very good. The waiters double checked the gluten free pasta and took good care of me. Ill definitely be going back!
general mgr very knowledgeable, including about safe wines (staff trained for food but not wine-if you are very sensitive like me). take many precautions including separate dishes, cookware and serveware..its the most comfortable I will ever be with someone else making my food.
HEADS UP! Upon arriving on 8/17/14, our server told us that the reason they are no longer offering a GF menu is because the kitchen has been reconfigured and GF can't be prepared without cross contamination. If you have celiac or are gluten-sensitive, be aware.
We try to eat at Macaroni Grill's when we travel as there are none in Vermont. This one was terrific! The waiter was very knowledgeable and we had no problem with our meals. They even have gf alfredo sauce - great for kids! They have an allergen menu with all allergens clearly marked.
Amazing experience here! Both me and my friend have to eat gluten free (my friend has celiac) and we both enjoyed the delicious gf penne with arriabiata sauce and spicy sausage and also pasta Milano with a garlic cream based sauce. Neither of us got sick, we were treated so kindly, and both had delicious entrees! Yummy yummy!!!
Although they give you a handout saying what is gluten free, there is very little. things can't be seasoned because their seasoning had breadcrumbs and things are already pre seasoned. So you can have unseasoned food. On the whole truly disappointing
they went out of their way to provide a safe gluten free meal. I have celiac and I did not get sick :). I love that basically the menu with some minor exceptions can be made gluten free. the manager kept checking to make sure everything was ok. they cooked the meal in separate water and too extra precautions. I highly reccomend the restaurant. they have kid friendly options as well.
We ate lunch here and I ordered the GF penne pasta with meat sauce. It took a few extra minutes to prepare but we were not in a rush. It was delicious! Our server got me the allergy menu when I asked (Gluten free is on it) and was very helpful. Probably not a good place for celiacs, but Italian food is like that.
The Fort Collins restaurant has done away with the gluten free menu. Going backwards here. You have to speak with the server, explain & then ask for gluten free pasta & make sure other ingredients in the dish are gluten free. Service was slow & our server really never understood my gf issue! Good Luck
Finding gluten free options for dining out in Mobile was just made a little easier for me! I was in the mood for gluten-free pasta and read that Ramono's Macaroni Grill offered GF pasta. Nervous by the fact that there was not a written review on this app or elsewhere, I called and spoke with the service manager David. Turns out his fiancee and mother-in-law-to-be are both Celiac! He said they eat there about once a month and also have several people requesting gluten-free accommodations often. He did a great job explaining how they avoid cross contamination by preparing the gluten free pasta in a clean pot with fresh water and that they use clean utensils and clean cooking surfaces. Regarding the food, I had the GF pasta (rice-based, penne styled) in alfredo sauce and grilled salmon. My fellow GF diner had the GF portofino pasta dish in a white wine butter sauce with grilled chicken. We split dessert, which was Double Vanilla gelato. We were very pleased with the experience, which was made all the more pleasant but our gregarious server Kara. She went above and beyond to make our experience all the more enjoyable.
My son, 13 years old, was recently diagnosed with celiac and we have been very careful about eating out. I called before we went and the manager was so friendly and helpful on the phone. He assured me that there would not be cross contamination. My son ate there Mac and Cheese and hummed the whole time eating it (it's one of his favorites). This was the first time in 6 months since we've ate out and we can't wait to go back! Yeah, he didn't get sick!!!!!
Knowledgeable and concerned about all food allergies. I went with a friend who had a peanut allergy, and the waiter was very helpful and conscientious of both of our meals, and the manager kept a careful eye on our entrees, as well. I felt safe eating here!
So disappointed the salad was great until I reached a large dead bug in my bowl. The waitress said I will remove your salad from the bill. Turns out the salad was included it the meal. I received nothing for free. Gf Alfredo watery and bland. Will not return
The Macaroni Grill no longer has an actual GF menu. Instead they have the manager come over and talk to you about your options because “the servers don’t always know what contains gluten.” I don’t mind that, but I would still like to be able to look at a physical GF menu. I appreciated everyone’s effort in making sure my dietary needs were met. I had the GF penne in a creamy garlic sauce. The food wasn’t bad, but I didn’t find it very impressive either.
I would not eat here if celiac or sensitive at ALL. They gf pasta is cooked in the same water. The server told me that I shouldn't order anything if I was sensitive.
they do not have gluten free menue. They hand you a Allergen sheet and you have to order with modifications, now i have to trust kitchen help. I have dairy allergy too so I will not be coming back here. if you need gliuten free do not choose Macaroni grill
I went to the Macaroni Grill for the first time in 3 years last night. My first experience was not that great 3 years ago. The food tasted good but I got unbelievable sick from the food. My friends and I decided we should give it another try. I hate being one of the people that just goes off on people about everything being terrible so Let me start off by saying the waiter was nice and so was the manager. But that was it. We waited an hour and a half to get our food. They said it was taking so long because they had to make the gluten free pasta from scratch. Finally when our food arrived it was cold. We sent it back to get it re heated. When the food came back it was just barely warm but we were so hungry we just started eating it anyways. I was 3 bites into my meal and found a regular non gluten free pasta noodle in my food. We called the waiter over and expressed again how sever my allergy to gluten was. He apologized and said he would get a manager. When she came to the table she apologized profusely and said she had her best chef remaking my meal and that my food was on them. We thanked her and she asked how everyone else's food was. That's when we told her how long we waited and then our food was cold. Which was obviously something the waiter had not told her. She again apologized and said all of our meals were on them. At this point I had already started to get sick and I had only had the couple bites of food. I finally got my meal which tasted pretty good. We finished our meal and got the left overs to go and tipped the waiter because he did a good job. But I still got really sick after eating. I took my leftovers for lunch and as I was 3/4 the way done and I found another regular pasta noodle that was not gluten free in my food I thew the rest away And once again got really sick! Needless to say I will not be returning to Romano's macaroni grill ever again.
I had GF pasta and soup without any issues. It's nice to go somewhere that they have more than just one or two options, and really nice not to have to pay a fortune to keep from getting sick! Very affordable and quite tasty. The only detractor would have been what seemed like an awfully long wait for a small meal in an empty restaurant, but we weren't in a hurry.
Very good pasta. Not too much else specially gf, but plenty of things that are.
Absolutely horrible. Their kitchen staff is oblivious to gluten free. They cook clueN free pasta in the same dish as regular, don't care about fixing it properly, and often bring out gluten pasta saying it is gluten free. My best friend had this happen and was rushed to the hospital from the restaurant after being reassured she would be safe. Horrible place for anyone to eat, especially someone gluten free.
Ordered takeout with my husband for New Years Eve and it was good. The server who took our order made sure I received gf pasta and took extra precautions putting my gluten eating husband's croutons in a separate container just to be safe. I had the penne rustica- a bit of a bitter taste to the noodles but overall we enjoyed it! I am very sensitive (celiac) and did not get sick.
Excellent service. Staff was very knowledgable about their gluten free options and it has always tasted fabulous. Had an issue once with under cooked pasta, but it was corrected immediately, and the manager was fantastic about it!! This is our go to for Italian!!!
The wait staff were really nice. However I found a spaghetti non gluten free in my gluten free penne so needless to say I got sick. Manger was really good about taking care of our bill after me getting sick. But depending on how sensitive you are to gluten it could be a good place for you but be aware.
