Terrible experience. The manager was loudly apologizing to tables near by saying that delay in their food and service was because of someone ordering gluten free. Will not return.

We have tried eating here sporadically over the years. Too many times, we have found gluten noodles in the gf rotini pasta. We think it’s coming from the sauces. No more Olive Garden for us.

Staff was very knowledgeable and made sure to keep my food separate. Good portions and didn’t get sick! Their menu says “gluten sensitive” bc they have a kitchen full of gluten, but this staff did their best to keep my food separate.

DO NOT EAT HERE Untrained staff, got served soup with wheat after waiter recommended the soup for GF. My pasta had a few regular noodles in with the gf noodles. Then was charged for the dish after sending it back because I obviously wasn’t gonna eat it

They have a gluten sensitive menu and were able to make accommodations but I received my refill salad and it had a crouton so I immediately stopped eating. Cross contamination is a big risk.

Went with two individuals with Celiacs. We asked the staff which items could be made gluten free, to which they stated any item. Both “gluten free” dishes made them incredibly sick. Apparently they put bread crumbs in the dish. Would not recommend for gluten free dining.

My husband received a gift card to olive garden and I was nervous about it. I was able to eat salad without croutons and their zuppa toscana soup which is gf and tastes amazing. It is like a potato soup with sausage in it. I'm very sensitive to even the slightest bit of cross contamination with severe reactions and I had no issues at all. We will definitely go again as it is so hard to find safe places to eat. I won't risk their gf pastas though. I've heard they use the same water for both regular and gf pastas. Don't know if that's a fact but I'm not willing to chance it. The zuppa toscana soup and salad was amazing and I was safe with no adverse reactions.

Sad to say I enjoyed eating here because of the convenience of the gluten-free menu, however the last time I ate here I found regular noodles mixed in with my gluten-free noodles. This was despite me questioning before ordering whether the gluten free pasta was cooked in separate water. It clearly wasn't but they told me it was. What a shame would love this to be a safe and convenient option for celiacs but sadly this problem changed my mind and their response to it proved that they didn't really understand the issue fully.

I came to this Olive Garden and asked for a gluten free menu. They had a nice menu with a decent number of options. When I ordered the steak and Alfredo off the GF menu I was given regular Alfredo linguine and was told the pasta was made from whole wheat. This location has absolutely zero clue what they are doing when it comes to gluten sensitivity.

Ordered gluten free pasta and when it came out was not gluten free, had regular pasta mixed in very apparently, so most likely boiled in the same water. I'm celiac and was illl for days! Would not recommend.

My boyfriend has celiac and he ordered gluten free rotini pasta (the only kind of gluten free noodle they have) only to have his plate come out with a fettuccine noodle from his daughters plate laying right in the middle of his noodles. Needless to say he was soon sick from it.

They don’t care about cross contamination. I was severely glutened, and won’t be returning. It’s sad because the GF pasta itself was fantastic. Just not safe for Celiacs.

Waitress was clueless. Should have asked for the manager, but ordered something safe (salmon), so didn't think it was necessary. I got VERY sick - seemed different than the usual gluten exposure though... Maybe food poisoning?

While I was impressed that this restaurant had a whole gluten free menu the one item they are lacking is a bread option. Their bread sticks are what Olive Garden is known for they should look into making a gluten free option

We tried this again for the first time in several years and my son loves it and didn't get sick. He's not been tested for celiac but is very sensitive to gluten. He had salad, buttered rotini noodles and steamed broccoli. So far we've successfully been to the Coin Rapids and the Maple Grove locations. His only complaint is that options are somewhat limited and there is no bread option.

They list Gluten Sensitive on the menu, so be very careful if you have Celiac. My daughter and I ate there and were so sick after eating. The food was very good and the manager assured us our food was GF, it was very apparent that something was not GF.

This restaurant has one of the most limited GF selections, and their pasta tastes terrible. I’d rather go to Biaggi’s, which has an amazing and tasty GF menu. If I could give 0 stars, I would!

The gluten free pasta at this Olive Garden is heated up in the same water as the regular pasta with gluten in it. I happened to ask of they use the same stirring utensil for the gluten free pasta as the regular pasta. That's when I was informed about how it it prepared. If you have celiac disease, I suggest not eating the pasta and asking how your food is prepared.

Boo! Stay away! We ordered gf pasta and it came out late. My son was about to eat it when we noticed it looked just like everyone else’s pasta. The waiter had brought out regular pasta instead accidentally. Luckily we caught it before he ate it. They brought out his pasta about 10 min later and it was still slightly hard and not cooked all the way. Yuck! Spending $15 on a pasta dish is bad enough, but having it be inedible was even worse!

We had a great experience here for my celiac daughter. Waitress was awesome and very knowledgeable! She let us know that the gf rotini is not even cooked in the kitchen. It comes pre packaged and they simply heat it up in the microwave. My daughter also had the gf soup and loved it! Our waitress told us that when someone has an allergy it shows up as bright red on the order screen. And she went the extra mile to alert everyone in the kitchen that our daughter had celiac.

Found regular pasta in my gluten free pasta after I explained my severe gluten allergy to the waitress. (Asked for clean workspace, new utensils, glove change etc.) was told they probably reused boiling pasta water. NOT celiac safe.

We went to a different Olive Garden, but my experience was the same as others posted. One GF pasta available. The waiter was very kind but didn't know which sauces were safe. I was extremely sick after eating there. Salads have croutons on them but they did bring me one with out. Not GF friendly.

I just ate here last weekend and honestly it was amazing. The salad, pasta and grilled chicken all were so well prepared I was sure I was getting glutened, but never got sick! The staff was extremely accommodating and made sure everything was switched out before serving me. I highly recommend coming here to have a meal. Totally felt normal and not like a burden.

The chain is celiac aware and the tabletop menu app has a list of allergins, however the employees themselves are not being properly trained at this location. Be your own advocate, if you are new to being gluten free, do not take risks, and any place not dedicated to being gluten free is a risk. The server assured me that he would communicate my celiac status to the kitchen, if he did, they did not comply.

I was assured my management prior to my experience that I would be safe, and the food was cooked in a dedicated area. I was 5-6 bites in until I realized it was REGULAR pasta and FRIED chicken. The waitress offered to call an ambulance after realizing I told her I had an allergy... I was atleast given a refund for my meal.

We use the curbside. They've been great @ keeping my food separate from my family's food. Very good too. Could put more sauce on it, a little skimpy, nothing that can't be taken care of by requesting more. Thank you
