Olive Garden - Gluten Free Disappointment
Gluten Free Preparation - Complaint
SAN LUIS OBISPO, CALIFORNIA -- Ordered Steak Toscano from the Gluten Free menu. Steak was to be medium-well. It came rare! Server was most attentive and offered to get a new meal. What happened was that the plate was microwaved!!!
The original steak was rare and the vegetables (zuchinni) extremely crunchy. Less than 5 minutes later the plate was back. The vegetables were correct and the steak was rubbery. It has been microwaved!!! Not something I expected from Olive Garden. AND the dining room was not busy. The kitchen had plenty of time to prepare a new meal and do it correctly but they did not. I should have complained but did not as we just wanted to get out of there.
This was our second experience ordering from the Gluten Free menu and the second time we were disppointed. The previous time we had the Penne and it was crunchy when served. Anything that is on the menu should be within the capacity of the kitchen to prepare correctly. The service was good but the kitchen dropped the ball again! I seriously doubt if we will be back to Olive Garden again.
