Limited menu. But they were very attentive to my needs. They brought croutons on the side for the rest of the table. Didn't have a reaction after eating there. I will definitely go back.
NO appetizers. NO soups. NO desserts. 2 salads, 2 pasta dishes, 1 meat entree, 1 fish entree And it took over 10 minutes to get my salad! NEVER AGAIN, sorry I even bothered to come here.
Very limited menu! Very sad since Olive Garden claims to make everything so fresh! I can produce a lot more from my own kitchen, and do! I used to love eating here but now it'll never happen.. 2 proteins, 2 pasta options and 2 salad options oh wait let's not forget the kids, you guessed it, 2 options..
I ordered a GF pasta option. When the server put my first plate on the table he noticed a whole wheat noodle on my plate and took it back right away. I found another whole wheat noodle on my second plate after taking a few bites. I gave them a 2 star instead of 1 because the server and manager treated me very well. The server apologized profusely and the manager comped the bill.
Gluten free options are only salmon, steak, and gluten free rotini pasta. Asked for manager who provided a print out of all allergens on full spreadsheet which was nice but confusing. Younger staff was not education on celiac. I would not trust food items were not cross contaminated. My daughter with celiac elected not to take a chance and eat here.
There were very few options for gluten free. Rotini with marinara/ pesto/ meat sauce/ grilled chicken parmigiana and a Salmon dish. I do not have Celiac but I do have an intolerance, I feel horrible and I know for sure it was Olive Garden. Please be careful.
I was very impressed with the service I received at this Olive Garden location. I went on a Saturday evening, and even though it was busy, the manager was very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable with my celiac concerns. She personally ensured no cross contamination with my meal and the waitress checked in on me often. I had the chicken parmigiana (grilled rather than deep fried) along with the traditional salad (no croutons). Delicious and wonderful service. No celiac reaction. Will go back again soon.
We hadn't been to an Olive Garden in years but decided to give it a try. I had soup and salad with grilled chicken. I was told the grilled chicken would be cooked in a separate pan. I don't know what the culprit was, but I know I got sick. Something was well contaminated and we won't be back.
I was served pasta that was not gluten free and after a few bites I realized looking at the chicken it was friend and not grilled. I got the waiter and he apologized and then asked if I at least wanted to keep the fried chicken... needless to say it is not gf friendly for celiacs and I would not go back after breaking out in hives.
The waiters at this location are rude. I ordered a gltuen free pasta with chicken and pesto sauce, they gave me 3 small pieces of chicken not even strips and the pesto sauce was oily. I won't be going back to the Bowie location, for better service go to the Waldorf MD location!
Only giving it a 1 star because I couldn't give Olive Garden a 0. They served me regular pasta after I double checked it was gluten free and then they came back after and said "Oops". I was so so sick.
I didn’t even consider Olive Garden as a choice. Both milk and wheat make me emergency room visit sick and pain for hours. It is a hypersensitivity, not allergies. I ended up there for a work lunch. I have food in my office so no big deal. They were totally awesome. The manager checked on me, the chief come out before he cooked. Please they were discreet so it didn’t make a scene.
Terrible as every review has said. I was stuck since others had chosen the location. My pasta was raw on one side of the plate and mush on the other. My chicken was llitteraly about 2 oz. , the salad was okay. I am mildly sick from it. Fortunately I ate very little of my meal. I will never go back. 2018 I went back recently. It is so much better! They made my favorite soup gf🤗 toscanna. the pasta is good too with the meat sauce and a sausage. I have been 4 or more times at coconut point in estero fl with no problems.
I have tried to eat here a few times and although they are cautious... the gluten free food was absolutely disgusting. The salmon costs $17.00 and you cannot have any spices on it. I didn't eat it and I will eat the frozen filets I cook at home just because it is good for me.... so I'm not that picky.... it is just really not good. The vegetables also were unseasoned... It is really not hard to cook Gluten Free.... and have gluten free spices on hand.... just don't pretend to have a gluten free m menu if you aren't going to make an effort to give the food some taste......
Manager says they use separate water for gf pasta, cook says they use same water, waiter says if Celiac don't order pasta there. So I took his advice, ate a salad and left. Sadly I really wanted some lovely GF pasta like I had in Victoria Olive Garden. :-( Waiter did not know what gluten was. Unaware they offered GF pasta but was willing to learn. Manager unwilling to come to my table.
No bread, but GF/DF pasta and meat sauce or chicken Parmesan minus the breading and cheese. Side salad with oil and vinegar was only DF option. No soups, even though our waitstaff one time tried to reassure me one was gf. Not been sick if I stick with the one dish.
Our server gave my husband the regular pasta instead of the gluten-free pasta. When we brought it to his attention after he’d already taken some bites he asked if we wanted to swap it out. Needless to say he got so sick he missed a flight out with my family the next day.The managers comped our meal and took down our names for insurance purposes but having my husband not be on vacation with us due to an error like that left me with a bad taste in my mouth.
I ordered the Parmesan pesto gluten free pasta and the salmon, both off of the gluten free menu provided. I kept asking every time I talked to the manager and told him my situation right as he came to our table. I got my food, asked again if it was gluten free and was reassured it was not to worry. Halfway through my meal I found regular noodles in my pasta and told him immediately and the manager came and said they have rules to avoid these situations and that the waiter must not have been trained properly. The waiter came back and said he pressed the wrong button and the meal was put in as a regular meal and not gluten free. The manager handled it properly and her reassuring about separate cooking area would be the only reason I would go back.
Friends frequently ask me to eat lunch there. Each time I have had so called gluten free entrées I have gotten sick. The restaurant does not guarantee that items are gluten free.
You have a very tiny limited menu on those crazy little iPads. And don’t have dreams of having appetizers or desserts! It’s salad or 1 kind of soup for an appetizer and no dessert but you can watch everyone else eat dessert!! Never going back. Can make better at home.
Limited items to choose from... Pasta marinara, grilled chicken parm, a fish and a steak. There is one soup you can choose (something with sausage if I remember correctly) or salad without the croutons. That's pretty much it. Like most places, no apps are GF. Not worth the money or time. I make my own Francese, Vodka, Alfredo sauces and a bolognese and experiment with sausages, meatballs, and veggies. They're an Italian restaurant, they can do better than that. I'm an amateur and can make it work. Pinterest it for ideas!
