Giada - The Cromwell Ratings and Reviews
unfortunately, our meal was ok but disappointing. Antipasto starter was very good. the spaghetti was a signature dish but it was bland and the shrimp was overcooked. Veal Milanese was pretty good but was served at the same time as the pasta course. Wine list is excellent. noisy to the point where our server made an error on the wine selection and brought us glasses of house instead of the bottle we ordered - which was quickly rectified. all in all, pretty average but we were expecting exceptional.
This restaurant never disappoints. The food is always outstanding. We had the lobster ravioli and the three pasta assortment. We started with the charcuterie plate and it was outstanding. Vincenzo the waiter is amazing and always makes sure everyone gets exactly what they want and he offers customizations as needed.
Amazing. We had the tasting menu and everything was delicious. The pasta was cooked perfectly. My steak was tender and the seasoning was a great compliment to the meat.
The desert cart... just wow. You have to try the lemon ricotta cookies.
I highly recommend taking some time during your Vegas vacation and experience this restaurant.
Seated next to wall while other more desirable tables were available. Entrée was overcooked and dry. Attitude of restaurant seems to be they don't care if you don't come back. It was a very disappointing evening. The "attitude" started as soon as we walked into the waiting room. It was our second and last visit.
Very disappointing experience! I have been here twice before...the best being the very first time, right after they opened. They seem to be steadily declining, ever since, and this was by far the worst. My husband and I dined here at 8:00 pm on Sunday, Dec. 10th. We had to ask for bread, after sitting there for quite some time, without any. When it did arrive, the waiter did not tell us anything about the selection of items on the bread board. If there were any Chef's specials of the day, we were not told about them. Our water was not kept full, the waiter was not overly friendly or smiley, and did not make us feel particularly welcomed. We wanted the butternut squash soup, but were told they were out of it. We wanted a window view, which we got, but we were stuck way back on the corner, so it wasn'tsuch a great view. The best part of the meal was the Oysters Rockefeller appetizer. It was amazing! Unfortunately, the veal saltimbucca ($57) was cold and dry, and very bland. It had way too much breading, and because of the temperature, the cheese was not ooey gooey, as it should have been. It was terrible! I have had much better saltimbucca at much more reasonably priced restsurants. This place is way overpriced and underwhelming. Add the fact that, even as a local, we had to pay $14 for parking, we will not be returning. On previous visits, the manager came around to greet everyone and check on them. That did not happen, either, this time around.
I am a big fan of Giada DiLaurentis's work and frequently prepare her recipes in my own home. I loved the food, everyone in my group loved the food. I had spaghetti, and they were kind enough to leave off the shrimp, since I am vegetarian. There were plenty of vegetarian options and I wanted to order several items. We also had zeppole and Giada's favorite cookies for dessert, which were scrumptious. The service was outstanding and everyone is so nice and accommodative. The decor is quite lovely, but, these are my only critiques:
1. Music: Clearly, Giada must have come up with her cardio playlist for this. I like Justin Timberlake, but, it is a weird vibe when trying to enjoy a meal. I think the background music should be more calm and relaxing, as many of us who love to eat prefer to do so in a relaxing environment.
2. Decor/ambience: For the most part, I loved the colors, upholstery design, glasses, and wall hangings. I did not like that the name "Giada" was embedded on EVERYTHING, including the paper towels in the bathroom (not going to lie, I did swipe one as a souvenir). After all, the restaurant is named, Giada, so we know it's hers. It is a little like McDonald's or Subway, where everything has to have your logo or brand to validate something. The food is delicious and the atmosphere could be really fun without trying so hard.
Overall, my friends and I loved the experience. But, we universally became quite put off by the level of narcissism, which was more apparent as the night progressed.
This was a disappointing restaurant all around. The prices were way too high, the food bland, and decor was not cohesive. Everything just felt like an afterthought and we were so disappointed. We eat at fine restaurants occasionally and I’ve never left a bad review. I feel like I’m easy to please.
We wanted to try Giada’s on a recent trip to Vegas. We thought brunch would be the perfect time. It was! The food is spectacular with the blending of different yet subtle ingredients. I loved the savory & sweet of my polenta waffles. The wait staff was so kind and helpful. I appreciated that he shared his favorites and his knowledge of how the differing ingredients played well together. I would HIGHLY recommend giving this a try especially if you like to have delightful, surprising and differing dining points of view.
The location is perfect, great view to the Las Vegas strip. The service at the bar was excellent , lovely girls as hostess, we had reservations and excactly at the time of our reservations we got seated. The table was a bit too small, it took our server a while to see us. He was sharp and very knowledgeable of the menu and recipes. The appetizers were delicious , especially the caponata and oysters! So good, but when our meals came, I was not too impressed, it was good but not “melt in your mouth best pasta ever”, my dish was a bit cold. Our server by then got a huge table of about 12 and unfortunately didn’t come around as often after that, we weren’t offered dessert from the server, but I’m sure he was very busy. Overall, it’s expected to be expensive, and that didn’t fail. I couldn’t wait to try her Signature dishes, but there weren’t many of them either... so, expensive, great location, friendly service, Good food.
Wonderful experience. Server Nancy was the height of professionalism. Lemon spaghetti with shrimp, the complimentary breads, and desserts were outstanding. Great food in a classy location, and being in the Cromwell the in and out is not to painful either (enter off of Flamingo to the valet).
To start off we made reservations and were greeted nicely and escorted to the bar to wait, order drinks, or tapas while we waited for our reservation(we were early). The bartenders were nice, down to earth, knowledgeable of the menu and eager to suggest good wines or cocktails. Despite a busy bar, they were attentive and timely. We were escorted to our table and told happy birthday on our way. We were asked if the seating was okay which is always a plus. We sat in comfortable chairs at adequate height and width that I did not have to readjust I the entire night. The table is laid with monogrammed dishes and decor that are simple but yet you know where you’re at...Giada’s duh! The waitress, Nancy, was prompt and explained the drink menu, tasting menu and regular menu to us and explained how she would suggest ordering. Not only did Nancy greet us sweetly but she was able to manage up her assistant and their menu. I’m not the biggest spicy food fan and Nancy offered to have the chef tone the spice down so I could still enjoy an item. The assistant brought us bread to go with our wine that we got at the bar and explained the different toppings to us. Oh my the BREAD and the delicious toppings! To die for. We decided on the tasting menu and it did not disappoint. The bacon wrapped dates melted in our mouths, the crostini and goat cheese peppers were delicious. Oh my goodness, an amazing start! Lemon Spaghetti and the Bucatini were superb! Fresh pastas and light but powerful flavors. We both ordered the filet medium rare, him with lobster and I with shrimp. Holy Hell!! It came with sweet potato mash and some onions with lemon potatoes and polenta served family style. Wow, it was all perfect. For dessert we got to pick from the dessert tray and my plate said Happy Birthday in chocolate. Get the Napoli! Great! Never once did we feel rushed and we always had a full glass of sparkling water. Nancy was amazing and so is Giada’s. Highly satisfied and will tell all my friends.
Had reservation at 1:00pm which we were sat promptly at that time. We waited 19 minutes and no sign of the waiter the hostess passed by and took out order and I asked why was she the one taking our order and she said that the waiter asked her too. I then asked a random bus boy for at least water since we had not been served anything and I asked him if he can get me the manager. When the manager came to our tables I asked if this was customary and she said no that there was some confusion on there side. By this time our meal had come and she asked if we needed anything and I asked for salt. She the. Sent salt and 2 glasses of proseco and the salt requested and she asked that she hoped that would at least make up for the issue. She then sent another waiter as I asked her not to send the waiter that never assisted us as I would not be nice. When we asked the same bus boy that got us the water if she can get us our bill the original waiter came to our table and said the tab was on him and he apologized but, I did not acknowledge his existence my husband did and we then left.
I've eaten at Giadas before, about 18 months ago and it was great. Not so much on Friday, the food was not good, the service was horrible. I honestly will not go back. It was wonderful the first time and really bad the second time.
The dining room is beautiful with a view of the Strip but they have a serious problem with service. Three of our brunch entrees were served but they entirely forgot my sister's food. We waited and waited and then noticed the bus boy who served our table was behind a podium looking at paperwork. We finally flagged down our waiter who went back to the kitchen to find the missing dish. The other 3 dishes went cold during the 10 minute gap in service. We had to ask for salt & pepper.
Our waiter was personable and nice, but he was working too large of an area to be effective and his back-up staff were MIA (missing in action). How can you possibly not NOTICE that you are missing one entire person at the table? How can you not come back after the food is served to make sure everyone has what they need....like salt & pepper or missing meals? That is just standard practice but Giada's misses the mark on service.
The food was just OK. The best item on the menu was the bowl of fresh berries with lemon yogurt sauce.
There are too many great dining options in Las Vegas to put up with mediocre service & food. Try Bouchon at the Venetian or Mon Ami Gabi at the Paris if you want great food & good service. Giada's was disappointing and missed the mark because of sloppy service.
We had a great view of the Strip and the god was great. The bar area was fun and dynamic and the drinks were different and the appetizers were great !The noise level is not good for a romantic evening. The main courses were very nice. Overall , it was a a good experience.
This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend. She was absolutely spot on in her high praise of Giada's. This was our second visit to this restaurant. We arrived a little ahead of our scheduled reservation but were still seated immediately. We had a later reservation after a show at the theater but the restaurant was still very busy. Upon being seated our server Lauren welcomed us back. It may seem silly to point this out but taking the time to know that we were repeat customers just highlights their attention to detail and appreciation for their customers. We also had an amazing table located against the window facing the Bellagio fountains. What a view!!! Lauren was amazing!!! Though she was very busy when we arrived she was very attentive and their was a wonderful display of teamwork by one of her colleagues coming to her aid by taking our drink order while she caught up. Again, I must point out that we arrived early for our reservation. At no time did we feel anything less than welcome and taken care of. As the restaurant cleared Lauren was a great conversationalist but not the overbearing type. We could not have asked for a better server. The food and cocktails were exceptional!!!! We enjoyed the tasting menu which is very reasonably priced as tasting menus go. Let's be clear, this place isn't cheap but here you actually get what you pay for which is not always the case with some overpriced tourist trap restaurants. Some of the aforementioned tourist traps being located in Italy itself.
We found the food at Giada's to be on par with the best meals we had in Italy. The filet was amazing as were all of the courses but it was particularly notable. Most of the courses are small but I can assure you that you will be stuffed by the end of the meal. I look forward to our next visit. Well done!!!!!!!
