Horrible experience. Asked two people for a gluten free menu. They had barely any clue and pointed me to the table top kiosk. It was hard to navigate so I just used my phone. They have a clearly listed gf menu on their website but staff is completely clueless. I order the steak and broccoli. First they brought me out steak with pasta noodles and Alfredo. They had to take it back. I received my order when everyone else was done. The steak was basically raw and the broccoli was too. I barely ate 5 bites as the food was very gross. No effort was made to compensate or remove even a small amount of my bill for the horrible experience. Definitely do not recommend as a safe place to eat.

GF pasta very inconsistent, the first time I got it it was cooked correctly but the second was way over cooked and mushy. So it’s a toss up.

They have a gluten-free indicator on the gf item's. My waitress was very knowledgeable regarding gluten,and if she had questions she went to the chef. I will be going back.

I don't know if this location can cook the noodles right because I haven't wanted to test it out since the last time I went to a Olive Garden and got penne pasta that was shredded and disgusting because they didn't know how to cook it. It's great that they have a gf menu but this is always last on my list of gf restaurants to go to because of the over cooked penne pasta. I wish I could give them gf cooking lessons with pastas! The salads are still awesome though!

Ordered the gluten free rotini and there was a non gluten free noodle in the middle of the pasta after explaining it was a gluten allergy. Do not go here

The server was knowledgeable about what sauces contain gluten. The gluten free pasta was pretty good, but I’m pretty sure that it was boiled in the same water as the regular pasta. It’s the only thing I ate today and I have a very obvious skin reaction to gluten. So that sucks. That’s happened more than once at a restaurant where I’ve gotten gluten free pasta (I’m new). I guess all you can do is stress the need for a fresh pot of water.

I really wish I could give them a zero stars. The server promised me it was completely gluten free, but I was still a bit nervous. Very little options, and even then, as soon as I ate it I knew it was not safe. It took a weeks to get over the effect and I felt so sick. I do not recommend.

Ordered GF pasta and informed server it was an allergy, and I found at least 6 regular shell noodles in the GF rotini. I am not sure if I accidentally ate some regular noodles or just had cross contamination, but I did not feel well at all that evening ☹ be very cautious and check your pasta!!!

I was told they only had one gluten free pasta & it wasn’t on the menu. Website states there is a gluten free menu, but staff was not aware of any gluten free menu.
