    Fabulous food, with no apology needed for the missing gluten. My non-celiac husband said the burger was one of the best gourmet burgers he's ever had. I agree. We also loved the fish tacos and sweet potato fries. I wish I could eat more, like I once did. Absolutely delicious. We cleaned our plates.

    No gluten-free menu. Our server told us to choose, then she would tell us if the dish was gf. She said she didn't really understand gluten-free and she proved it. My husband loved the chargrilled oysters but does not have to follow a gf diet. I chose a salad and did ok. But I am cautious when servers are ill-informed.

    Decent selection, and the staff regularly culls outdated packages, but few have any concept of customer service. If you need help, you will have to be a pest. And don't count on their recommendations as some will tell you a product is great but, when pressed, admit they have never tried it. Favorite items may be out of stock for weeks at a time. Prices are very, very high.

    I bake a better GF pizza, but this one is good and I don't have to cook all the time. Our waiter told us the GF pizzas are prepared in a separate part of the kitchen and baked in their own oven, to prevent cross-contamination. He did not know if the salads were GF, so we skipped them.

    The fries are always safe, the staff always knows what is GF so I don't have to rely on a corporate website. Managers are hands-on.

    Most of the time, the food is safe but I have been glutened -- most likely from cross-contamination as I did not see any source if gluten. We also noted the health department ratings have been slipping, which really concerns me.

    Olive Garden has perhaps the most limited gluten-free menu of any restaurant offering gluten-free food . . . but that's the least of the problems. The staff at this location have not been trained to know what is gluten-free. We stated three times that we were ordering from the gluten-free menu -- we even had to point out to the bartender (takeout order) where the gluten-free version was on his screen -- and we made the cardinal mistake of not checking the food before we left. Instead of the gluten-free child's chicken dinner, we got the regular child's chicken dinner with regular spaghetti served alongside the chicken. I'd ordered that, because what I really wanted was a Chicken Caesar Salad, which is not available despite the fact that the menu did include a gluten-free Caesar Salad and a gluten-free chicken breast (only for kids) dinner, which came with salad. The menu has since been changed, so I can't do that anymore. The gluten-free pasta is not particularly good. I agree with the previous post about the salmon -- did that once, never again. I do not consider this a true gluten-free option, due to the indifference of the staff and the limitations of the menu.
