Giada - The Cromwell Ratings and Reviews
I ate at Giada 3 years ago and have been DREAMING of the lemon spaghetti ever since! This time around, it was every bit as mouth-watering. I had the opportunity to taste the Lobster Ravioli, Polenta, Broccolini, and Seafood Tower, and our table also ordered the Tiramisu, Key Lime dessert, and Giada's favorite cookies. Everything was delicious! To top it off, our servers were attentive, warm, and very helpful throughout the evening.
We had been before for brunch And it was great however dinner left us quite disappointed. We were stuck in a back room alone with no window view at all. Service was not good, we were asked how our meals were and when we said the chicken was dry and tough Our server walked away. Why bother asking???
Food taste was great, although small portions. Prices were exorbitant for pasta. OK if you want to experience a TV chef's offerings, but not a place I would return.
Seating was crowded and noisy.
Good view of the Strip and fountains of Bellagio if you are lucky enough to be seated on that side of the restaurant.
Really great food. Should be three scallops with risotto for price. Small portions but I was full. For the price, people should not have to split one herb roll. Save the salt and chile pepper, give each guest an herb roll. I would go again, but I have to $ave.
We’ve been twice now and the food was not as good as the first time. The dessert menu was a let down in comparison to our last visit. Also, on three separate occasions we mentioned we there to celebrate a 21st birthday and the restaurant failed to do anything special for our guest. I love Giada and her recipes, but I’m not sure I would return for a third time.
Did you know Giada’s serves breakfast?! Neither did I until this last visit. Now how can you spice up a breakfast menu one may ask...she does! Try the salmon cakes benedict and wood roasted mushrooms...yuuuuum! I will be back for dinner and breakfast again!
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.
I really wanted to love this place, but when they sat my husband and I in a narrow hallway with 6 other tables lined against the walls/windows, I was very disappointed. No atmosphere sitting in a hallway that separated two dining areas. The service was great and so was the food. But please don't seat people in a hallway!
I had a great meal, and a great waiter, with Rocco! I should have had the oysters, but opted for a salad instead. I have to have a salad at least once each day.
Disappointed that you did not have a Moscato wine, but the Riesling was satisfactory.
Giada need a good rich chocolate dessert, like a flourless choc. cake, or truffles. The extra large macaroon was good, but did not hit the spot for a true chocoholic.
The spaghetti with Parmesan and shrimp was fabulous.
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.
Marvelously delicious as always! Giada is true fine dining, with well appointed staff, lovely decor and ambiance, and outstanding food. We'll keep coming back to try everything! Must try breakfast and lunch as well. This time we came back again for dinner, and had to have the charred octopus appetizer once more after loving the first time. After that, we ordered the veal chop (huge!) and the lobster ravioli (which is a pasta course but I had it as my main). Both were absolutely delicious! We shared and could not even finish everything. I think we overdid the bread opener - which is one of the best things EVER with a rosemary loaf, Parmesan crisps, and various toppings!
The only little critique is that the wait staff does push the many-course fare a bit much. They seem disappointed when we order only a couple of items rather than one of each from appetizers, pasta, main, and so on or the full tasting menu. We can't even finish it all anyway!
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.
