I have not gone for a long time because my last time was a disaster. A friend wanted to treat us to carry out and I refused. Made me look it up and I found this.
Used to love having gluten free pasta. Liability issues reported by staff the reason for getting rid of allergy menu items. I went with out and we will not return. HUGE MISTAKE to the new owners of the chain. It is time to improve food services not tell the world "our food is not safe to everyone in the world with any type of food allergy." Good luck with your customer service model.
Macaroni grill has stopped serving gf pasta so they decided to stop offering a gf menu. instead I got an outdated allergen menu and a rude look from the hostess. I expressed my worries to the waiter about the menu only partially matching the allergen menu, and he said, "I'm pretty sure the recipe hadn't changed for those things.". I went with it and had no problems, but the service was awful and the food was mediocre and cold.
Good GF options, especially if craving Italian food.
If you have Celiac Disease this is not the restaurant for you. Even the non gluten items like steak and fish are still grilled on the same surface as the bread. Our waitress was very helpful, but this establishment is not set up for gluten free.
— Not at all
— No gluten-free information on the menu
The gluten-free pasta was the best! Great waiter. She said she could make pasta dish on the menu gluten-free and she stuck to her word
— Gluten-free items are marked on the main menu
So they only really offer a pasta substitute that is gluten free, which isn’t bad and if you have cooked gluten free pasta you know it’s temperamental, which in my case they did a great wonderful job. I was told only 2 sauces were considered gluten free which is a olive oil garlic one, & normal red sauce. I am sure both would be great but not ideal for things like fettuccine Alfredo, or other dishes. But I did opt for their garlic cream sauce since i am gluten intolerant not celiac but it’s been a hour and so far no issues. So i would just say for celiac it’s extremely limited, for gluten intolerance i would say at your own risk. But i very much enjoyed my meal, they made sure to let me know when it came out it was gluten free and if there were any issues they would take it back ASAP. Also they do offer to add sauce on the side if you want to try the sauce out before pouring it over your entire meal.
I asked the waiter about gluten free options and he said “We have pasta, but it is really bad. You don’t want it.” Then proceeded to tell me I should get the regular pasta instead. We walked out. Not gluten friendly at all!
Create your own pasta... very knowledgeable staff!!!
