Excellent service and a gluten free menu. Pasta was nice, just a shame they don't do pizza too.
it was great!!!!our waiter was amazing and knows his stuff about gluten frew and help me with the gluten free chooses
Just diagnosed with Celiac. Chef and server, Brooklyn was very helpful and accommodating. Thank you for taking the time.
They had lots of GF options and were knowledgeable on how to avoid contamination. The food was very good. Thank you!
GF pene was as if made yesterday and reheated in microwave- brittle and scorched. Nice that they try to accommodate but come on. And no GF dessert option.
The chicken and steak that were on our Mixed Grill (GF menu) were delicious. The vegetable sides were uninspired. Salads were delivered without croutons. The manager came to our table to make sure we were comfortable ordering from the GF menu and explained that our orders would be tagged as GF when they were submitted to the kitchen. He also came back to check with us once we received our food. Overall-a very good experience from a restaurant that we would not have chosen without this app.
You can’t even get a salad here. I would not eat here again unless I wanted to torture myself by watching others eat and to feel nauseous from the smell of gluten lingering in the restaurant. I wish I could give them -1 star. I feel they owe me a star just because they are so not gluten free friendly!
The first time I came here and order gf pasta and they served me regular pasta😡. It was very frustrating because they acted like it wasn’t a big deal. I decided to give them a second try last week and I got very sick after eating here. I would not trust them if you are highly sensitive or celiac.
I went today with my husband. I knew thye did gluten free but I originally could not see much on the general menu. The waitress eventually found the separate gluten free menu, which made it a lot more clearer as to what my choices were. There were 3 choices of entrees, pasta with 2 choice sauces, marinara and meat sauce, of course they'll give you grated parmesan cheese on top if you want. That was $9.99 for the pasta which included an amazing hearty tasty soup or salad as an appetizer option. The grilled chicken option entree was like $12.49 and the salmon like $15. The only fault I have with the dish was I could immediately tell with how yellow the pasta was that it was most likely made from 100% corn, so the cheapest gluten free pasta available.
This was a terrible experience!!! The waiter went out of his way with my salads and he was fantastic. The problem was the pasta. I did a Nima text on it and it tested positive for gluten. I brought it up to the manager and they offered to bring me another plate. I turned it down as I was scared to eat at this point and they assured me I was wrong and it was gluten free. That’s just not the case.
I have celiac and have never had symptoms from eating there. The selections are limited for gluten free., but are getting better. I met girl friends there for lunch once. They didn't have some of the items I asked for, so I ordered substitutions. The other girls had $5-$6 lunches while I was charged $26!.
I think we all know better than to expect a safe experience at Olive Garden, but someday you may find yourself there anyway. Here’s what you can expect: the gluten-free menu consists of tuscan soup, salad, and rotini with marinara or meat sauce. Three items. (And if you happen to also be sensitive to dairy, pass on the soup and salad.) Grilled salmon and chicken don’t contain wheat, but are listed as high risk of cross-contamination due to shared grill. Godspeed. Personally I hope to never return.
Used to LOVE this place prior to Celiac diagnosis. It was a CC nightmare here. Definitely had a reaction even after ordering off the gluten free menu. Server said he was familiar with Celiac but seemed offended when I asked for the GF menu. Their GF menu is only available on the little table kiosk, btw. I will not be going back. Too many issues with two visits post Celiac diagnosis.
Update: I went back and got violently ill off of salad and their gf soup. Normally I have a great experience here, but not tonight. I gave it 3 stars cause normally they are wonderful. I was not given my gf noodles. I asked the server to verify they were correct, because they didn't look like my usual (they were a different type) and she assured me they were. I thought they got in new pasta. I get the receipt and she didn't even ring it up gluten free. I called and talked to a manger when I started to get sick. Lots of confusion on his part on what a reaction to gluten is. I got an apology, a promise to educate the server and I get to pick up a gift card. Not worth it for how I feel!
Please be warned!!! This app says “Gluten Free Menu.” However, Olive Garden itself does not call the menu “Gluten Free,” but rather “Gluten Friendly” (is cross-contaminated). I did not notice this distinction until after I ordered and eaten some of my food. I have Celiac and got sick. If you are non-Celiac, you probably will be fine.
I would give them zero stars if I could. Would not recommend for celiac. Although our server was knowledgeable, my celiac husband’s grilled chicken Parmesan came out with what looked to be breadcrumbs on top. I tasted them and determined it was bread crumbs. He sent it back and they confirmed it was. Offered to make it again for him. He declined, said he didn’t trust them. Manager came out and offered to personally make it for him. He declined. Didn’t feel safe and getting sick isn’t worth it. What’s odd is that I had the regular grilled chicken Parmesan and mine didn’t have bread crumbs.
Ordered gluten free baked chicken parm, and when I received it, it was topped with bread crumbs. The waitress quickly had it replaced and I don't blame her because it was a kitchen error. The ticket with my order clearly stated that I had an allergy and that the meal was to be gluten free. Not a good experience.
We went to Olive Garden and told the waitress that we were gluten-free my wife is a celiac, I eat gluten-free to be on the safe side of no cross-contamination’s. She brought us at our salad with croutons and breadsticks which we of course sent back because we don’t eat it. We ordered the gluten-free rotini with a marinara sauce my wife and I both started to eat our meal and partway through there was a piece of spaghetti in my wife’s meal, regular spaghetti. I asked to speak to the manager to point out the spaghetti and my wife said she was concerned about cross-contamination if there was a piece of spaghetti in her meal she didn’t eat anymore of course, but she also thought did they use the same utensils, which of course would have caused cross contamination. The manager responded by saying that the utensils were in hot water so it kills off any of that, to which my wife says that gluten is a protein in it wouldn’t die off by hot water. Celiacs beware, this place thinks that you can use the same utensils in your noodles whether it’s gluten-free or regular because the utensils would’ve been in hot water, eliminating cross contamination, we all know that’s not true. CELIACS BEWARE!!!!
We had lunch today. There's a separate menu and are server was GF aware. My daughter ordered GF chicken breast and pasta. Unfortunately, she was served regular pasta. She asked the person who delivered the food if the pasta was GF, because it looked the same as her sister's regular pasta. She was told it was GF, but she got violently I'll about 45 minutes later. When I called the restaurant they confirmed that the spaghetti she ate contained gluten, because they do not have GF spaghetti.
Update: OG eliminated most of the items that used to be marked gluten free. Staff told me they could still make a safe gluten free me even though it’s not listed anymore as gluten free. What a disappointment that OG went from being accommodating to the opposite. No reason was given for the change. Staff was knowledgeable, gluten free menu was on the video screen thingy & clearly marked. Food was good, better on the second visit, nothing to write home about, but I have Celiac and did not get sick, so if I'm in the area, I will eat here again.
Waiter was very kind and knowledgeable. And he educated me that the kitchen never changes the water for gluten free noodles. This unfortunately was after I was halfway through my GF rotini and found a shell noodle mixed in. Never again. Major cross contamination issues here. :(
GF menu sucks. They only pulled the obvious items from their normal menu and slopped them into a makeshift gf menu. Obvious items such as salad and meat and about one gf pasta with plain bland tomato sauce. Olive garden is not very accommodating to the gf community. Save your money.
