Giada - The Cromwell Ratings and Reviews
Have eaten here a couple of times when in town and have never been amazed which is disappointing because we love Giada’s recipes. The Cromwell where the restaurant located is a little subpar to the standards I would expect.
We decided to give it another shot today but again we left underwhelmed. Our appetizer never arrived - went straight to main and then my entree was wrong. Service staff did recover but having been on a few occasions it may be time to say ‘we tried it’.
Sorry Giada. We love you but this restaurant disappoints a little
From the very beginning to the end this place will not disappoint. Clean, modern, friendly staff, the menu options are fantastic. The Chef gets a thumbs up with the wonderful job he or she is doing at the restaurant. We dined for breakfast. Incredible food flavors and the presentation is top notch. I will go back. Has a nice few of the Belagio water show too. The Cromwell is very clean casino resort.
Went here for the 2nd time and it wasn’t as good as my 1st experience ... order lobster ravioli and lobster was not fresh. The steak w/ egg that we order was really good! Order few other dishes as well and was just ok... service seem slow, we had ask for our drinks 2-3 times
This was my first time in Vegas. I have grown up watching Giada's cooking on the Food Network; It was very nostalgic to visit the restaurant. The ambience was very delicate and very well thought out. We were greeted by smiling hostesses and were seated at a window table - perfect for a date! Service was amazing and unlike any other I have experienced before. Fred was very knowledgable and patient with us. (We were sad to see him go!) Lauren was also very charming and involved with her trade. Both have been there since the beginning which reflects well on the success and future of the restaurant. The support staff was also very helpful and made sure to romance all the beautiful and tasteful dishes that came out. I suggest asking the server to out together coursed meal (or 'omakase' some would say) so you'll have an honest and thorough opportunity to try a little bit of everything on the menu - don't forget the wine! The tasting menu looks very delicious as well and I can't wait to return to try it. Thank you for a wonderful experience! I'm looking forward to returning on my next visit to Vegas. I send my praises and wish Giada all the love and success... I'm eager to see what Pronto has in store!!!
I had been before and thought it was the best pasta I have ever had, but this time was a big disappointment. If it wasn’t for my waiter I wouldn’t have been happy at all. I hope Giarda keeps a better eye on things. The antipasti was great, my 3 different pastas left a lot to be desired. The house pasta was also disappointing being all clumped together and pricey.
A beautiful room and excellent wait-staff complimented food that was very good, though not the best I have had. The rosemary bread was outstanding as was flatbread. Margherita pizza appetizer was also excellent. My dinner was the filet with carmelized onions and smashed fingerling potatoes (subbed for the sweet potatoes). The filet was fork-tender (m-r) and very good but I've had tastier. Onions and potatoes were wonderful. Had the raspberry sorbetti--really good. My wife had the salmon (excellent-though she wasn't thrilled by the pomegranate emulsion), parsnips, and the tiramisu cheesecake (also very good but too much coffee in it).
Spent about $140 plus tip. No drinks.
I was so excited to eat here... it was on my Las Vegas restaurant bucket list. We made reservations and it ended up being at the end of brunch. We ordered the Baked Pasta (Lasagna). The plate was not all that artistic or pretty. And the food itself was a bit underwhelming. I was really expecting to have my socks knocked off. Our assigned server was never around when we needed her... and gave us a bit of attitude for ordering the dessert soufflé as they were closing to prep for the dinner crowds. Overall - disappointed and won't be back.
This was our second time to Giada's for weekend brunch. Overall we really liked it. But my Bloody Mary tasted too much of tomato juice, not enough vodka, and the garnishes were OK but suffered by comparison to the Mary I had the day before at Mon Ami Gabi (which was fantastic, and unbelievably garnished). We got the goat cheese stuffed peppers, which my wife loves and I like pretty well. Also a Caesar salad and the carbonara pizza, which we call breakfast pizza because it has bacon and egg. The two basically over easy eggs on top were quite amazing, how they can get the yolks to a consistency that they are not hard, but they don't run either. Really perfect. Coffee was good; our neighbors' desserts looked wonderful. Really only complaint was they brought all the food at the same time. We would have preferred to have the peppers, then salad, then pizza. Maybe we thought it was obvious, and didn't make a point of it. But bringing cold food and hot food at the same time I think is kind of odd, inviting eating the hot food first, and neglecting the salad, which is supposed to be a palate cleanser, or at any rate should be before the main course.
I was visiting Las Vegas with my boyfriend, mother and aunt in celebration for my aunts birthday. She had always been talking about Giada’s restaurant, and since we live in Missouri and don’t have restaurants like this, I wanted to make her birthday one to remember. As we are greeted by friendly faces and are sitting by the window just giggling and enjoying ourselves, that’s when the real nightmare began. We first ordered some pastries for us to try as a starter before ordering our bunches. When our pastries arrived, we then placed our order. (This was at approximately 11:05am since we arrived at the restaurant at 10:45am and they sat us before our actual reservation time.) After we place our bunch orders, we then continued our conversations, but then realized our food was taking longer than usual. We look around and look at the time and it’s now 12:00pm. We look for our server and he just simply ignores us. It was finally at 12:20pm, our server came up to us and said “ I’m so sorry, I forgot to ring your food in. It will be up soon.” Now, as me being a former waitress myself, that is simply unprofessional. If you forget to ring in food, you should immediately tell the table or immediately tell your manager. In this case, he did neither until it was too late. So as we were sitting there, hungry as ever, watching people look at us as they were leaving with full bellies, I begin to get even more frustrated. We don’t travel often and the fact that we wanted to make something special for a family member, that all got ruined because of poor customer service. When our food finally came at 12:40pm, we did not receive an apology from our server or the manager. I was expecting the manager to bring out our food but instead he chose to look at us from a distance and then walk away as soon as I made eye contact with him. The food itself was good but the fact that our server made this experience absolutely horrible was very upsetting. We won’t be back.
I've tried restaurants owned & operated by many of the Food Network chefs, and generally been very pleased, so was anxious to try Giada's when my wife and I recently visited Las Vegas.
We weren't at all disappointed. We each had delicious appetizers - my margarita pizza was outstanding - and pasta for our dinners. The pasta was amazing, and the dishes were very creative. Spaghetti with lemon and mascarpone cheese? One of the best pasta dishes I've had in years! And my wife's lobster ravioli was equally tasty, although a heavier dish than we'd anticipated.
Excellent, excellent wine list, and very attentive service, with the only glitches being that it took a little longer than one might expect for our wine to be served, and our check to be presented at the end of the meal.
The only negative thing that happened is that there was a table of folks there - probably from a convention - that included a woman who'd obviously had too much to drink, and got uncomfortably loud. I wish the staff had been able to get her under control, as her behavior ruined an otherwise lovely atmosphere...but I can't really blame them for another patron acting like an idiot.
I'd strongly recommend Giada's to anyone looking for a great meal. Not an inexpensive meal, to be sure, but unlike a lot of Las Vegas restaurants, a place where you get the quality of food and service that you're paying for.
Every course that we ordered was absolutely incredible. Hands down, some of the best food we have ever eaten anywhere and absolutely the best Italian food in Las Vegas. So authentic and a refreshing step away from the ol spaghetti and meatballs. Her handmade pasta is out. of. this. world. And that truffle pecorino. OMG. Its like dying and going to heaven. Giada's wine list is bar none one of the best in the industry, easily satisfying even the most discerning wine enthusiasts (ourselves included). Just a great, great place. We will definitely be back. One negative drawback that management should have handled - there was a party of maybe 8 or 10 adults seated next to us that were celebrating one of the couple's 26th wedding anniversary. Even a blind man could see how obviously drunk these characters were. I get that its Las Vegas, but there's also a time to pull it together. They were loud and unruly, yelling and carrying on. At one point, a female at the table literally gave a male at the table a lap dance. At the dinner table. While there are other people dining. Including us. Not acceptable or appropriate.
Our interaction with the manager and sommelier were horrid. No care for customer satisfaction at all. We brought in our own wine and they were completely passive aggressive about opening the bottles - after more than 30 minutes and four requests, including a trip to the reception desk to discuss at length - there was no apology or care for our point of view. I told the manager that I wanted him to understand our concerns - I wasn't asking for anything - and he NEVER apologized. Giada needs to know her management team is not looking out for the long term health of this restaurant. It took more than 1 hour and 45 minutes for our entrees to appear. There are MANY other choices in Vegas and they need to better understand what customer service and experience means. We ate the following night at Lago in Bellagio and it was WONDERFUL! Going back there for sure next trip!
When we got to the table, which was next to a waiter's station, there were dirty dishes on the station, and a dirty napkin on the floor, which was very unappetizing. Our waiter was very professional and friendly, and he was the saving grace to the meal. The meatball appetizer was very good. However the entrees were lacking. The Chicken Vesuvio for 2 was so dry, it was inedible. We told the waiter and he insisted that we order something else, so we chose the lobster ravioli. It had no taste, the pasta and lobster were very chewy. We each had one ravioli, and left it on the plate, making it obvious that we did not like it. We were charged for the lobster ravioli, which we were really surprised about. No apologies for 2 really bad entrees.
The atmosphere is great, but not enough to compensate for poor food. I think Giada needs to spend some time at the restaurant that bears her name.
My wife has a tree nut allergy. We told our waiter about the allergy and he recommended we go with the tasting menu for $120/person. My wife was unable to eat any of the desserts because they all contained either tree nuts or almond paste. We did not discover this until the dessert tray was brought out for us. We were very disappointed that we were lead to order the tasting menu when we would not be able to fully enjoy the dessert.
DON'T GO. I was skeptical of going here, but my wife loves Giadi and being our anniversary I figured the worst that would happen is I'd be eating Italian food in Vegas. As instructed by the waitress, who was nice and friendly, we ordered several dishes. The fresh ricotta crostini was bland and mediocre. The truffle burrata was served with 4 small tomato slices and was slightly hard in the middle. Confused, so I asked for some more of the complimentary bread platter, the rosemary bread was rather dry, but the focaccia cracker was good. Then came the margherita pizzette, which looked like something you'd get at a school lunch. It tasted better, nothing to write home about, but I'm not even sure I'd consider it equivalent to a slice of pizza anywhere else. And then the pasta, Bucatini. Noted as "Calabrian chili pomodoro & fresh ricotta." My wife took one bite and put her fork down immediately gasping at the heat being unbearable. As with any good relationship, I immediately took to the pasta to show her what a baby palette she has. My lips began burning, but I was able to get down about a 1/4 of the dish as I paired the rest of the burrata and ALL of the quarter dollop size ricotta served with it. Every bite was a chore, but I'm not one to make a scene in a restaurant, just rather never provide my money their again. They were nice enough to provide us with an anniversary gift of a couple of cookies. It was a nice gesture, but if I'm being honest, weren't any better than something you might get in your local market. I awoke in the middle of the night dealing with the heat from the pasta I ate. Possibly 1/4 of the entire dish. And I'm not a baby to heat. I don't eat habanero peppers of the plant, but I do like spicy food, but that was just ridiculous. The best thing at this restaurant? The plate the pasta was served on. Really. It was very nice.
I was very disappointed in the restaurant. The table we sat at , two chairs were broken, then the food was awful. I asked for Salmon with no salt and it was full of salt I could not eat it. Four people at our table sent back their food. The service was poor. I was very disappointed. We had two special birthdays at the table, and I picked this restaurant because I wanted it to be very special and it was a big disappointment.
