my daughter is recently diagnosed Celiac and went to this restaurant for her highschool homecoming dinner. the server was the server was completely the manager challenged her as to whether this was a choice or an allergy! Over an hour after a meal containing gluten came out she was told that her state was still frozen.
Gluten free menu is VERY limited. Staff knowledge of gf is terrible! I tried to give them a second chance but they blew it! First time going they had spehetti noodles that were not gf mixed into my gf noodles. I asked if they were gf and they ran off with the plate. Of course I was sick that day. Second time going my daughter and I whom are both Ceilac ordered the same past dish with gf pasta. Pasta came out so undercooked it was crunchy!!! Sent it back. Food finally arrived as other members of party were boxing up leftovers and check was delivered. Decided to take it to go only to find when home, it too was crunchy, just not as bad as the first go around! I honestly don't feel they even deserve the one star!
Normally I wouldn't complain since until now I have never had a problem, but within 30-minutes of eating my stomach was aching something fierce, which means there was some cross-contamination.
Had five cheese marinara shrimp with gluten free pasta (on the 2 for $25 promo) and was fantastic--didn't upset me at all, but some of the pasta was dry as it needed more sauce, so get extra as it's probably a thirsty pasta (and did seem to take a long time, as GF pasta can). No GF breadsticks which sucked, but salad without croutons was easily accomodated!
I ordered a carryout and they gave me noodles that weren't gluten free. Thankfully I have eaten at a different Olive Garden before so I knew that the noodles should have been rotini and they weren't. When my husband took my order back, they asked him if he was sure the noodles they gave me aren't gluten free? Clearly, they have no idea which ones are and aren't. I won't eat here again.
Location in sherman has good food and always seems to try and be careful. I'm always clear about being gf but dot make a big deal about it. I've learned to stir up noodles and watch for the random stray noodle that's not supposed to be there. Have not had that happen in a very long time and been told they cook gf noodles in there own place. Good place to go. They seem to care and hardly ever end up sick when eating there. Hard not to stare at other peoples bread though.
They have gluten-free menu on the little machine they put on the table. You can actually make your own combo entrées from that gluten-free menu. I was skeptical about gluten-free pasta in any restaurant, so I made my entrée with grilled chicken with 2 sides, asparagus and broccoli. Chicken tasted good, except the veggies were steamed without any seasoning at all. If they can put uncontaminated garlic butter on the steamed veggies would be perfect. My last two or three experiences at this location back few years was terrible. I went there again because our guest chose this location. This time the service has improved. The waiters are aware of "gluten-free". I was surprised I can have such good service at Olive Garden in this location.
Very limited gluten free options especially at lunch, and the menu isn't well marked for gluten free so you have to ask a lot of questions. However my server was careful to ask the kitchen about what was safe for me to eat and the dish I got was safe, but mediocre.
Ordered the Chicken Parm. Came breaded. When I asked if the bread crumbs were gluten free the waiter assured me they were. Wrong!!! No care was taken in preparing my meal. Unfortunately my waiter had 0 knowledge of what GF is and didn't take a minute to find out disputed me mentioning the seriousness 3 times. Unless you want to be sick do not go to this restaurant. I wish I could give this a less then 0 review
Great food and they have a great gluten free pasta! But every time I get the side salad they put croutons and they have to send it back! It's just common sense but no one is perfect especially cooking for many people! I did enjoy the meal and might come back!
They have a small menu for gluten sensitivity however I have a high dairy sensitivity and they were not very accommodating. I've been eating nothing but meat, fish and salad my whole vacation and getting tired of it. I wanted shrimp but all they can do is oil and sherry wine which I really don't like. Plus I can't have too much oil or it upsets my stomach too much. I ended up eating my daughters grapes from her meal. I also asked if they had a fruit plate or some other option and all they were able to offer was more grapes and some strawberries from the bar. I'm very disappointed I wish there could of been a little more effort to accommodate my food allergies.
Very good!!! Been here multiple times and it never disappoints. I always get gluten free noodles with marinara sauce with shrimp or chicken. Both are delicious. I would give 5 stars if they made their chicken gnocchi soup gf. I have made gluten free gnocchi soup copy cat before and it wasn't to hard. I would be even be willing to pay extra. however if this isn't possible, which I do understand if it isn't, i wish they offered better gf salad dressing since their house salad is usually bland. I love olive garden and will definitely come here again. I have never gotten sick and it's one of my favorite Italian restaurants.
Never had a better knowledgeable waitress ever anywhere PERIOD.
Terrible service. The food is mediocre, at best and it made me sick. The idiot server dumped the tray of drinks all over my toddler! The only think they asked is if we wanted to move to another table. My kid is wet and cold, no thank you! The manager wouldn't show her face. Never again!
I became very sick after eating here. I was offered a gluten free soup which clearly was not after eating it. I would not recommend nor ever go back again. My pasta dish also was delivered as regular noodles and I had to ask if they were gluten free before they noticed. Those mistakes were convincing enough that they aren't considerate enough for celiac sensitive.
You have to request the gluten free menu, the menu is one sheet, prices aren't listed, the server said you just have to go by the prices on the main menu. They have GF pasta and the salad is the same minus the crotons. There is one soup and no dessert options and can't guarantee on mixed drinks. But more than I expected!
