After hearing about their gluten free menu I decided to try
Olive Garden in Fairfax last weekend. I obtained the g-f menu
and chose a caeser salad to start with. I asked waiter if g-f
dressing was available and he didn't know. I asked manager and he
said no. So I ordered the salad and waiter kept repeating
to himself No Croutons, No Croutons. Salad was OK though - I
had oil and vinegar for dressing. Then I ordered only gf pasta
meal on menu as I didn't want chicken or steak. Manager told
me it comes frozen and they zap it in M/W. When I ordered
this from my waiter he put his finger on my menu selection and
said he was taking it to kitchen to show them. Needless to say,
this did not inspire confidence! All in all meal was just OK. I did
not feel comfortable & really gave manager the third degree.
Long story short, I will not eat there again. There are too many
places where my confidence level is much higher.
