Giada - The Cromwell Ratings and Reviews
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 consider myself loyal to Giada’s and go any time I can find a reason to. I’d say we go to Giada’s around 12 times a year and love celebrating holidays there. I recently went for a Friday brunch and everything was consistent except the service. The server seemed contrary when I asked questions and his answers and body language were almost as if I was crazy? One Example: do you offer the anti pasta plates (seen on iPad) during brunch service? I love the anti pasta plates during dinner and was hopeful to treat my friend to a plate during our visit, but didn’t receive the iPad during our visit this time. He seemed to have no idea what I was talking about with two more exchanges before he asked someone he worked with. We got the plate, it was great, but the service this time was the worst service I have ever received at Giada’s.
Giada was truly spectacular. Excellent food - we had the lobster ravioli and the spicy Bucatini, which exploded with great flavors. The limoncello souffle was a creative recipe that was perfectly made - normally I only see only chocolate souffles on the menu in other restaurants. Service was impeccable. The place was energized and the views are amazing - you have a view of all the major hotels surrounding the Cromwell. Seems like a minor detail, but the coffee was smooth and really great so worth mentioning. I will definitely return in the future and have already spread the word to my inner circle. Great job, Giada, for making a successful restaurant!
I was asked to sit in the lounge/bar area and they would come get me. It was almost 15 min before a bartender took my drink order. Then when I was seated at the table, it took another 15 min to be greeted by a server. All in all, it was very slow service wise. I was in the restaurant for over 2 and 1/2 hours... Food was great.
I have watched Giada for years on Food Network and this was my opportunity to taste her recipes. I chose the tasting menu because this was my opportunity to taste a variety of her dishes. It was a culinary delight for me and I enjoyed the complexity of the flavors with each course. I also loved the contemporary, yet comfortable and beautiful decor.
With the exception of the male sommelier we had a wonderful experience. They were out of the wine requested and didn't have anything comparable at a similar price point (within $10-$15). Granted, we were looking at less expensive bottles (around $90), but when we asked for a different recommendation that might go with our meals he indicated that he "really didn't have anything for us" - and just pointed to the other cheaper wines. The whole exchange was really annoying and poorly handled. As expected, the food was delicious.
Shame on Giada! Great tv chef however this Resturant was one of 7 night’s choices , michael Mina at Bellagio, largo at Bellagio, Rivera at Delano, Olive’s at Bellagio, all first class!
Giada’s food was poor at best and the chicken for two was not eatable(way over cooked) the eggplant Pam was a bit under cooked and the olive dish was extremely over priced!
We left the chicken, paid the bill and told the waiter how bad the whole dinner was!!
So sorry Giada!!
We had a lovely time; however, the service was just ok. The waiter took forever to come back to ask if we needed anything and even longer to bring our son a soda. The lemon aioli was flavorless and so were the lemon smashed potatoes. The rib eye was to die for and the pappardelle with braised rib meat was delicious! If we went back it would definitely be for the ribeye. The restaurant is very pretty. Ask to sit at or near the Terrace. The view is gorgeous.
I was impressed with her restaurant. We shared plates and tried a little of everything. The lemon pasta dish was my favorite! Small portions, but I already knew coming in and really was satisfied since we shared a few dishes. Definitely, recommend Giada to others.
Beautiful restaurant and plating of food. The staff was super friendly and on top of everything. I just was not impressed with the food. For the price, I was expecting to be blown away and it just wasn’t that great. We started with the meatballs. Besides the tiramisu cheesecake that we had for dessert, it was the best thing we ordered. I had the pasta trio and my husband had the risotto. The risotto was fishy and kind of bland. The parpadelle was the best out of the three I ordered of the trio. We chose this bc of the reviews and the proximity to Absinthe. If I did it again, I would probably choose another place.
Food was delicious and the service was superb. The room was very hot, but we made them aware and they adjusted it some. It could have been a little colder but they tried to accommodate. The highlight of the meal was dessert. We ordered the selection of cookies and all of them were good, but nothing like the Lemon Soufle .... it was delicious, perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. one of the best I’ve ever had. If you go, you should order it. It is out of this world.
Good experience. My husband is a Giada fan and it was fun to surprised him with dinner at her place.
Cannot beat the location and view overlooking the Bellagio fountains especially if your seated by a window. Our server Ronald E thoroughly explained the menu items and was attentive and professional ensuring our higher end dining experience was a great experience.
We had a window table on the Flamingo side. What an amazing view of Bellagio, City Center, and Ballys. The waiter was polite, pleasant and knowledgeable. Overall, the food was as expected - outstanding. We started with the bread selection. The oil and spice dressing was sooo good with the bread. The arugula salad with vinaigrette and Parmesan cheese was excellent. For my main meal, I had the Papardalle. I loved the touch of short rib with the pasta. Very tasty. My wife ordered the seafood ravioli which she thought was very good. The ambiance was great. It's a nice spot to bring guests from out of town and impress with great food and scenic views.
