I will never eat at this restaurant again and I urge you to take caution when choosing this restaurant as well. I took all necessary precautions and despite being assured multiple times by waitstaff and management that my meal was prepared gluten free it was not. If they can't even get a simple caesar salad correct (dressing was on the side so they didn't even have to mix it!) how can you trust them with anything else.
Be cautious and think twice before choosing this establishment.

Macaroni Grill locations now have gluten-free penne pasta, which is prepped using separate cookware.
Thanks! I don't see this listed on their menu on the website, but it has been confirmed on Facebook.

Not absolutely related... my oldest daughter was the manager of a Macaroni Grill. Knowing my issues, she used to serve a regular customer who had a young daughter w/ celiac. She would take care of them personally... taking the gluten-free pasta they brought from home and cooking it up in a clean pot. Those parents were SO grateful that they could take their daughter to a restaurant and eat safely. Wish there were more managers like that.

Sorry you had a bad experience at Romano's Macaroni Grill. Since you are in the area, you might try the Seadog Brewery in Woburn. ( I know, the name is a little scary for celiacs!) I can vouch for a safe gluten free eating out experience there...salads and especially the pizza. They are a small new england based chain worth traveling for.
Hope you're feeling better!

I went to Macaroni Grill for lunch with coworkers. I'd checked previously online and found that they had a gluten-free menu, so I had high hopes. When I ordered, I told the server about my food allergies, and she seemed to understand. When the food was brought out, mine was actually brought separately from everyone else's (I was happy to see they went to such pains!). By the time I finished my meal though, I was already having the usual gluten issues. Obviously the food got cross-contaminated somehow. I won't be going back there.

Not had a problem with Macaroni Grill. I think it depends on how educated the servers are to their allergy menu.
