    Beware! We called ahead to enquire about GF prep and manager assured us multiple times that it would be safe. My daughter asked for buttered noodles and they used the garlic butter that they dip the breadsticks in! Very apologetic but not worth the risk.

    Staff was friendly. I ordered the GF and dairy free salmon with broccoli and salad. I ate with no reaction. However, the salmon was over cooked. The steamed broccoli was not fresh and was already turning brown. The salad tasted like it came from a bag.

    It took three tries to get my gluten free chicken primavera. First the chicken came out fine but the noodles were regular. Then the noodles were gf but the chicken was the same as before. Finally I had a meal that was correct, but I'm pretty sure they boiled the gf noodles in the regular noodle water because I ended up in pain anyway. They really did try to make it better, they comp'ed my meal and gave me a smoothie - as all their desserts are not gf. But my boyfriend was completely done eating by the time I had gotten mine. Hopefully they have learned from this and will do better next time. They did try.

    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

    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.
