Giada - The Cromwell
This charming Las Vegas restaurant welcomes diners with warm colors, comfortable furniture and natural lighting thanks to the restaurant’s huge retractable windows. Guests can eat in the dining room, lounge or at window tables, boasting breathtaking views of the Bellagio fountains and Caesars Palace.
The menu consists of Italian cuisine with refreshing, Californian influences. Menu items include lemon spaghetti, chicken cacciatore, marsala herb chicken meatballs, rosemary focaccia and lemon flatbread and vegetable Bolognese rigatoni. GIADA adds a lighter touch to Italian dishes, all while staying true to classic Italian recipes.
There are family-style options, along with a vegan and gluten-free menu options. Desserts, like the lemon ricotta cookies and sorbets, serve as the perfect ending.
We were seated after waiting 25 minutes after our reservation time when they checked us in. Couple came in after us got a nice window table while we were seated in the really noisy section. Just very annoyed. Nice window seat was left open our entire visit. Our waiter was good, and the manager did come over to say hello. But the evening began on a sour note. Get it together hostesses! Probably won’t be back because of this.
Excellent food. Service seemed a bit off, took a while to get to us after we were seated, then the waiter didn’t seem to be able to get the timing of service quite right, but he did suggest a extremely delicious Caesar salad, and a wonderful desert.
There was trouble at the start they ignored our reservation and our request for the window seating. We had to argue for our table so the event started on a rough note. Our server was professional but the rest of the staff was uncoordinated. With the food , the menu looked inviting but the dishes we got were overly salted, the octopus was highly salted , the salad underwhelming and the lobster ravioli was tough salty and overwhelmed by the brown butter sauce. The risotto was closer to good but still a little too wet. We paid a lot for a meal that left us wanting and disappointed.
Our reservations were at 6:30 and we didn’t get seated for 40 minutes, ridiculous! This in turn caused us to not be able to enjoy our dinner as we had to get to a show. Will not come back!
My wife was familiar with this restaurant from the food network. We had not had the opportunity to sample this food previously despite great reviews. We were not disappointed the food was great the service was great. The next time we are in Las Vegas I would return. We recommend Giada’s without reservation.
Wonderful!! Best brunch ever!
Exceptional service and wonderful meal! Plus a great view of the Vegas strip! I have been lucky to have table 50 each one of the 5 times I have visited Giada's. The team of professionals have been incredible each time and have exceeded my expectations each time. This trip I enjoyed a cocktail at the bar on Friday afternoon and Brunch on Sunday. Both times, your staff made my experience wonderful and were very inviting and knowledgeable about all aspects of your menu and beverage selection. The chef's excelled in the culinary department as well. Overall my visits to Giada have been fine dining at its best. Love to meet Giada one day.
I was disappointed with this experience. The overall atmosphere had such potential but it was so gimmicky! We arrived on time for our reservation but were seated late. (Fine, I know things can get crazy in a restaurant). It still took our waiter several minutes to get to us and even bring us menus. Then he came back to fill our water glasses and bring us an IPAD!!!!! with the cocktail and beer menu on it and the antipasti menu (that was on the regular paper menu). It was very gross to me to have to use that grungy iPad that who knows who else has touched to select a cocktail. And so unnecessary. It’s not like the drink menu was that lengthy that they couldn’t add pages to the additional wine list that was set on the table and the menu we were handed. Needless to say, our little two top table was very crowded by all this and it just seemed to odd for a restaurant of this caliber to stoop to the level of TGI Friday’s and give me an iPad to look at. After the drink menus were taken away THEN the waiter came back with guess what-another menu- it was the evening’s tasting menu that if you ordered the $125/5 course dinner you could keep the paper menu with a picture of Giada and a few recipe cards that featured recipes of dishes on the menu. Again- so gimmicky! If I want her recipes, I’ll buy her cookbook. If I want her picture- I’ll buy her cookbook! And bringing us the tasting menu 20 min after we are seated was certainly a missed opportunity. He was so slow at being attentive I had plenty of time to peruse the regular menu and decide on what I was going to order. The food was outstanding and the location is cool. I would recommend the restaurant but this was by far the best “experience” we had while eating in Las Vegas. I’ve eaten at Tom Colicchio, Thomas Keller and other celebrity chef restaurants and none of them were as gimmicky as this was. Just stick to the cool vibes and delicious food Giada!
Chicken cacciatore was not very good. It was fried chicken with sauce on the side!
I ordered a 4 course dinner for 2. No price on the menu. It was $120 per person. Not worth it.
Great experience like always
Food was amazing! Loved the ambiance as we watched the fountains. I cant wait to go again.
Excellent food and service as always
The spaghetti was fantastic as we hoped, the caprese not so good - literally only four little cherry tomatoes hidden in a ton of egg bake and a mountain of prosciutto. Overall still a great experience. The waiter was very professional.
I was dining solo and they made sure I had a table with a view. The food was amazing and the service great. The ambience was like going to a friends house and sitting in their dining room. I can't wait to go back!
Six friends sharing brunch couldn’t have been better! The antipasti was incredible and each of us enjoyed a separate dish with high compliments. Wonderful ambiance, menu choices, and quality.
We would not recommend this place to our families and friends for any special occasion. Way too noisy and the service level is subpar at best.
Excellent atmosphere for a special occasion. We chose to order off the menu rather than the tasting menu as we had a few dietary restrictions. Highly suggest the olive oil poached octopus and the branzino--they were amazing. All the special touches were there including red etched glassware.
Lobster in fettuccini was fishy tasting, may have been old or undercooked. The rest of the dinner was fine.
Delicious. Loved the cocktails, bread, salad, pasta. We pretty much covered the menu including dessert, hot chocolate soufflé. Took the kids for an early reservation and worked well. Watched the fountains at bellagio!
Always a wonderful time and food is fantastic!
Service was excellent and atmosphere was very pleasant . Food was not up to par for a restaurant of this caliber. Menu descriptions sounded great but food did not live up to description...too many other good places to go next time unless they bring up quality of food . We both looked at each other and said that was “ok”. To add insult, we asked for 1 cookie for desert instead of the whole plate of cookies . They charged us $2. Pretty tacky when you are dropping $300 on Dinner for two.
Everything from start to finish was amazing! The Book Brunch Menu is a fantastic way to experience the restaurant for the first time. The only thing that could’ve made it better was if Giada herself were there. I’ll definitely be back!
Great food , great service
This is one of my favorite restaurants on the planet. Always a great experience. Food, Vibe and Service are all excellent.
Everything was excellent! Waiter was wonderful and the sweetest person! The lobster fettuccine was the best I’ve ever had. Perfect night!
The food was amazing. Service was outstanding. My only issue was the shrimp on my spaghetti entree was in need of seasoning and a bit overcooked. The portion sizes are perfect!
The $16 Ceasar salad was puny...and offered very little flavor. It was just a few pieces of Romaine and a few croutons....
The entree tasted good, but the food is very overpriced for what is served..
Food is a little different but definitely worth trying things you don't ordinarily order. Service was outstanding and very friendly atmosphere.
I have been looking forward to this dinner for weeks. We were greeted by 3 girls wearing the same very short dresses & the longest eyelashes I have ever seen. Except for their height they could have been sisters. We had a drink in bar which was very nice. Service was excellent. We were taken to our table & from there the service was impeccable. The bread prior to dinner was delicious. We ordered the ravioli & lemon spaghetti. Here is where things went downhill for us. They give a whole new name to al dente. The spaghetti was just not cooked enough & I think they left out the lemon. The ravioli had great taste but was a little rubbery. For the price of this meal it was a huge disappointment.
The lights went out on the corner affecting Cromwell, Caesar’s, and Flamingo. We had just placed our orders, so the restaurant had to shut down.
Great service and amazing food! We chose the tasting menu for our meal and one of us paired t with the premier wine pairing. The food was delicious and plentiful. I am not sure the wine pairing part at $120 was worth the price, but the overall meal was great!
Amazing and delicious! There were 6 of us and all loved it!!!!
The food variety selections were outstanding. They were smaller portions, but ordering two selections (with the yummy bread) was sufficient for each person at the table. Preparation and flavors were excellent.
We brought our own two bottles of wine and willingly pay the corkage fee for them both. No issues with that.
With a reservation at 7:30 PM, we did not get seated until 7:55. (Group of 5)
Once seated it was sometimes difficult to have conversation as the noise level was high. .
Our waiter was very difficult to understand due to his strong accent, which was not Italian.
Poor room acoustics. Extremely loud, very difficult to carry on a conversation with our friends.
Everything overpriced. Bacon wrapped dates were delicious, $15. Simple Parmesan spaghetti with two pieces of shrimp $34. The veal chop was tasty but heavily breaded, $57.
We took home the Giada’s favorite cookies for $12. The container had one large chocolate chip, two small ricotta lemon and two small round chocolate jam. While good, they were not worth the price.
I was given a tasting menu first then asked to see full menu, to which those were just given out. Then felt like unsold (literally ended up with 2 entrees). That said when asked to move before meal was done they comp’d a bottle and a glass of port for the table which was great.
I took my family out for a birthday celebration and Giada's didn't disappoint! The food was fabulous, service spot on and dessert delectable! What can I say, but I'll be back.
I wouldn't return. The service was excellent- I will say that. But the food was boring and my husband had mushy shrimp. It wasn't worth the price and we could have eaten at any Italian restaurant. There was nothing special about it.
Food was awful, tasteless, tough. It all felt old. Nobody tried that night. No idea how this place stays in business. Maybe it's just the views. Forget it.
