Giada - The Cromwell Ratings and Reviews

Very modern decor. Hostesses were friendly and warm. Our waitress was also friendly and explained the menu and restaurant clearly. We ordered the chicken marsala meatballs, white lasagna, and ravioli. The bread basket was brought out shortly after ordering and was tasty, a bit greasy but good. It felt like our food took awhile to come out but it was busy that evening. The food was fair, nothing to write home about. My husband had the ravioli and I thought the pasta was a bit chewy. Portions are small for the price but it is Vegas. On the way out we tried the photo booth and it was not working. The picture was just a black blob. We told the hostess and she said that it should work when emailed. It did not. Overall I do not think we will return on our next Vegas trip.

The highlight was the bread and then everything went downhill.
My rigatoni was RAW not al dente but RAW and hard and inedible. When we informed the server his response was "that's how we serve it here because the pasta is homemade." The sauce was good but I couldn't enjoy it with hard and crunchy pasta.
Lobster ravioli was just ok, a mild unexceptional flavor.
Overall, it's a beautiful restaurant and I anticipated better food.

The restaurant was BEAUTIFUL and the service and food EXCELLENT. I booked a party of six for my father's birthday -it was definitely a hit.
The drinks and tonics were delicious, the food looked and tasted divine. I would definitely recommend and I hope she opens one in California.

Excellent food and service but when they open the windows you can't hear a conversation de to the noise on the strip and sirens. Also, the music is too loud and not appropriate for the atmosphere they are trying to create.

We live in Las Vegas and it was my daughter and son in laws recommendation that we dine at Giada and especially to order the tasting menu. (they had a wonderful experience doing this a year ago). I found it strange that the "tasting menu" had not changed at all in over a year's time!! A tasting menu usually makes adjustments to the produce of the time of year -- especially if it is trying to be a true gourmet experience . The appetizers were good but clearly not exceptional. (the dates were overcooked) I ordered the creamy shrimp pasta: the swirl of spaghetti was dry and stuck together in one lump - the shrimp however was quite succulent. The mashed potatoes served with the main course were uneatable due to being excessively salted. When I am expecting a truly exceptional dining experience this is totally unacceptable. We did bring these issues up to our waiter and the restaurant paid for our round of cocktails . While this was nice I certainly don't feel the food made up for these inconsistencies. We were truly totally underwhelmed.

Food was awesome, but prices were very absorbent, especially the wine. The noise level was higher than any large casino with slot bells/whistles going off. I was disappointed with the menu list which did not include many of the famous/traditional Italian dishes. My favorite desert Tiramisu was available with the special of the evening meal, but could not be purchased unless you ordered the special... 😥 Very disappointing! Overall I would give this restaurant 3.5 stars out of 5.

Bad night. This was our third visit to my favorite chefs restaurant. Service was really bad, in part due to a large group being seated near us shortly after we arrived. Our assistant server brought us the wrong type of bottled water twice and the lemon spaghetti had no lemon taste where it is usually wonderfully noticeable.
We will of course go back and hope this was just a bad night not a reflection of issues with training servers and chefs to execute on what in the past has been an amazing experience.

We were so looking forward to dinner at Giada, having been huge fans of hers for years through tv.
Sadly, the restaurant doesn't cut it.
Inefficient and almost rude hostesses, martini glasses with chipped edges, Luke warm and expensive food, chairs that are incredibly worn...
Just not memorable...sadly.
Wouldn't come back.
Still love Giada and hoping they can up their game.

I was so excited to try Giada but I have to say I was not blown away. It was loud and I could not hear the kind wait staff.
The place was packed - so many people. I guess that's a good thing.
The food was not over the top. I felt like the experience for the cost was not aligned. When irritated about price, charging for sides when just a piece of meat is +$75 shows an arrogance that does not translate into acceptional taste.
I have experienced very expensive dining and an not opposed to paying top dollar for top quality. The food at Giada is prepared well from mediocre recipes. This is where the disappointment rests. A celebrity chef should has high expectations.

Lovely ambiance ! Great view! Tiny portions for full plate prices even tho the server explained that portions were small. Street performer below our window playing off key sax was a little annoying. My rigatoni was bland but once I seasoned it and asked for grated cheese, it was nice! Waiter was not very attentive or nice but efficient. Over priced but glad we went... One time. So many other Vegas choices with a better value. Sorry Giada!

exquisite decor and excellent service. waiter guided us through the menu choices and there is a tasting menu whete you can try a bit of everything. the window views are all worth it. warning the portion sizes are very as acknowledged by the wait staff.

Love Giada's! We've dined there many times and the Food is always outstanding!!! The service was a bit slow this time... we had to wait and ask for refills on water and iced tea... which is unusual ....
We ate there for lunch and had a window table ... the windows were open wide, so there was a lot of noise from the street but the weather was so beautiful, it was well worth it!

The food was not bad at all but the service was terrible. The waiter took our orders and never came back to check on us. We had to get attention from other to bring us the bill. It also ran out of main items from the menu. It was shocking!

Had a breakfast here on a Sunday. Group of 4 shared the chef's selection bakery basket as well as a breakfast entree apiece. Everything was delicious. The view was spectacular, and the weather was beautiful so they opened up some garage door-type windows for some much appreciated fresh air.

We usually have lunch here, but this time we decided to try dinner. We were not disappointed! We had a late reservation - 10 pm - after a show and were still able to wait to be seated by the window, they didn't try and rush seat us. The windows were open to the strip so it was almost like being outside. With a view of the Belagio water show and the action of the strip it was a real treat. The food, as usual, was excellent. From the chicken marsala meatball appetizer, to the salmon with corn and peas, and finally to the lemon souffle - could not have had a better meal. Topped with a bottle of Vermentino and the night was complete. 2 1/2 hours later we walked out happy campers and ready for our next visit!

Since we like Giada's tv show, we thought the food we be classic, like what she cooks on tv but that wasn't the case. The food tasted good, but the portions were so small they were insulting to the customer's intelligence. We had a hard time finding any classic dishes. Everything was fancy with a twist and very overpriced. When we finished, the waiter asked me if I had any room for dessert. I thought I was on candid camera!! My ravioli dish had a total of seven "mini" raviolis with a few peas. My boyfriend ordered a pizza since there was nothing else on the menu he liked and it turned out to be smaller than the frozen pizzas for one they sell in the supermarket. The waiter explained that if we had ordered the four course meal he suggested we would have gotten bigger portions. At the end, we paid $95 (without alcohol) and had to go out for a real dinner afterwards. Very disappointed.

This was a reservation made months in advance. I visited Giada's a year ago and had a wonderful experience. Thus, I brought my 88 year old father there for his birthday along with my siblings and their spouses. What a mistake!
After being seated in a VERY noisy dining room it took 20 minutes to get a drink. The waiter than went into a long "sales" pitch which was nothing more than a way to bring up the cost of the dinner. We ordered our food and was disappointed again with the meals. My risotto with scallops (at $48.00) contained 2 scallops. The side dish of potatoes ordered for the table came in a pudding dish and wasn't enough for 1 person, never mind to be shared by 8. My Dad's steak (very costly) was over cooked and dry. To top it off, I had asked for a special dessert for his bday. They brought him 2 cookies on a plate. I was humiliated and so disappointed that my Dad's special occasion was so ruined.
I will never return and never, ever recommend.

The food and service were great but overpriced. The biggest problem was the music. It was way too loud to carry on any kind of conversation. Definitely geared to a younger crowd. When we complained about the noise level, we were told that the owner wanted a high energy restaurant and that included the music, and they were not allowed to turn the music down.

Food was fantastic. Portion sizes were pretty small but prices were on Par for Las Vegas. The service we had was not great by any means. Our server was very short and sarcastic. He tried to be funny but came across as very cool condescending. The spaghetti was decent but the chicken was WAY over cooked. Beautiful view of the strip depending on where you sat. Overall good but not great.

This is our 4th time eating at Giada but our first with the Tasting Menu. It was such a wonderful meal, trying some new items and eating a couple favorites. The service is always great, didn't get to sit by the windows as we have in the past but do so if you can...the views are spectacular.
Will definitely go back the next time we are in Las Vegas.

40th anniversary celebration -- 8 people following a vow renewal ceremony. Restaurant was beautiful -- can't say that any dish stood out as outstanding. Requested window seating approx. 6 weeks prior and ended up way in the back of restaurant. Requested 2 separate bills -- one for food and one for liquor -- the manager agreed and yet it never happened -- I just let it go. Found the constant upselling by the staff to be so obnoxious - sure it wasn't their fault but something required by those in charge.

I was very please overall. My one complaint was that upon walking in the hostesses were busy giggling and talking about personal stuff and didn't acknowledge us for about 45 sec. we stood there and waited to be greeted and when they looked up it is as if they were surprised we were there. After that the night was perfect.
