Giada - The Cromwell Ratings and Reviews
Reservation was not honored, took them 30 minutes to seat a party of 10 with a reservation established.
The service could not have been poorer, slower or less elegant.
They seated us in a table where 10 people hit elbows in a VERY uncomfortable manner.
We were simply astounded at the lack of elegance and style of this establishment.
We were expecting something TOTALLY different, specially from Giada.
Atmosphere and service were excellent. We were a party of 4. Everyone enjoyed the appetizers, soup, salad and main courses with the exception of mine. My main course had great flavor but wasn't hot. I sent it back and it came back to me again not hot. It was maybe at most warm. I ate very little of it because I want my pasta hot. They did take my entree off the bill. Everything is rather expensive, but that's how Vegas has gotten with the celebrity restaurants.
We had an amazing time. The food and service were phenomenal. Lauren T was our server, and she made the night. She was fun and made us feel special. It was like we were her only table even though the restaurant was full. She took the time to get to know us and made sure everything was great with our meal. It was a wonderful experience and not something that you always get with a dining experience. We will definitely be back.
The venue is the standout here. The decor and view (overlooking the strip) with open-air windows make for a very nice dining experience. Overall, the food is very good, although pricey. We took a family-style approach and had some standout hits and some dishes that were not as memorable. The wine list was overpriced compared to other similar restaurants we visited. I'm used to seeing prices that are 2x what you pay in a wine shop, but expect to pay roughly 3x here.
I've been waiting to come to Giada's since its opening and was not disappointed. The atmosphere was refined and chic. We sat at a table with a view of the Eiffel tower and the Bellagio fountains. Our waiter Fred and the wait staff gave exceptional service. They made sure our dinner experience was first rate. The food was delicious and met all of our expectations. We will be coming back to try brunch at Giada's.
Service was excellent but the food wasn't quite up to the hype. Maybe it was because we went during brunch. We expected the Italian fare like the gnocchi and pizza to be outstanding but the weren't any better than our local new York pizza place. The pesto grilled cheese was excellent though.b it was very light and crispy with a lot of flavor.
Easily one of the best brunch spots on the Las Vegas Strip. With an amazing view out towards the Bellagio fountains. If you can get a table next to the windows, it's definitely worth it, but just about every spot has a good view. Great mix of modern Italian dishes, with top-notch ingredients and preparation.
Even though I have to drag my husband, we always stop here on Vegas trips. I love the food and the service is always great. One complaint this time, I had requested a table by the window when I booked the open table reservation. When we were not seated by the window, I mentioned this, and was told that they couldn't always honor every request for window table, and that if we wanted one it would be another 10-15 minute wait, This even though there were 3 tables open by the window, and one of them was given immediately after to a couple who walked in, no reservation, after us. What is the point of using open table if something as simple and obvious as this is not accommodated.
Our experience at Giada was extremely disappointing. To start, the waiter took an inordinate amount of time practically reading the menu to us in a tone that seem to express his view that we weren't smart enough to read or interpret it ourselves. Then, when we asked a server a question, the waiter interrupted and went on another overly long explanation. The wait between our salads (by the way, the arugula salad is just arugula on a plate -- very bland and unexciting) and the main course was about 45 minutes. Things got much worse when we were presented with the check, which included a $75 charge for water! When we protested it, the waiter ignored us and ran our credit cards without responding to our complaint. We then asked for the manager, who made some adjustments and then managed to run one credit card (we were a group of six men each paying separately) twice. Plus they added a mandatory service charge (despite the horrible service) to the bill. While the food overall was fine, it wasn't anything to write home about. Two words sum it the entire experience: never again!
We had a great time celebrating my friend's bday. Although she didn't received any complimentary dessert maybe we forgot to tell the waiter, but it was okay since my friend ordered one of the juices and we didn't liked the taste at all but the waiter Chris changed her drink with no charge. Good job to Chris! I ordered chicken waffle which was really, really good!
I have been there twice already since I know the restaurant. Love the food and atmosphere like I love Diada's cooking show. She is a beautiful , attractive lady with great food. We made a promise once we go to Los Vegas we will be Giada's restaurant.
Hope someday I will meet her in person.
Our server was fantastic. I regrettably didn't catch her name but she had the window tables on the Flamingo Rd side. This was Thursday night 3/16/17. She didn't even know what the occasion was but she could tell by my wife's reaction to the surprise dinner that it was a special night. Our server went the extra mile to make the dinner very memorable. It won't be forgotten. Not only will we be back but we will assuredly recommend Giada's as a special place to family and friends.
We ordered the margarita pizza which was very good and the bread they offer if outstanding. Portions are moderate and pricing is very high. My rigatoni did not taste good and was unable to finish it. Was told it was a tomato base by the waiter but it had a very mushroom flavor. Thou it was mentioned in the menu, my wives Pasta was extremely spicy and that was a bit over baring. Overall I would not go back.
We absolutely love the atmosphere and the staff !! Everyone is so friendly and kind here!
The atmosphere was so cozy and bright
The open kitchen was fun too !!!
We had the muffuletta sandwich which was amazing with flavor , perfect with a glass of Pinot Grigio!
I would recommend this gem to anyone who is looking for a beautiful place to dine
Food was underwhelming. Spaghetti would have better with anchovies than jumbo prawn that had no taste. Chicken was crispy but dry inside and tasted more like fried than grilled - nothing special here. Dessert menu was not compelling to try after food experience.
Big fan of Giada's, own her cookbooks, watch her shows so this reservation was made the day I booked my hotel and airfare. Rather than spend $30+ each on a pasta dish, we opted to try several different appetizers and were completely satisfied with the portions and prices. FIVE large meatballs, FIVE large bacon wrapped dates stuffed with Italian sausage, a delicious Caprese Crostone, Bresaola and a lovely lemon hazelnut dessert. The Rosemary bread and parmesan flatbread were delicious as well and the presentations were impressive. I would definitely come back for wine and appetizers.
GIADA'S WENT FROM ONE OF MY FAVORITE RESTAURANTS ON THE STRIP TO "WILL PROBABLY NOT RETURNING". I HAD DINED THERE 6 OR 7 TIMES BUT MY QUEST HAD NEVER BEEN THERE. I SPECIFICALLY ORDERED TABLES 44, 46 OR 48 BY THE WINDOW SO SHE WOULD GET THE WONDERFUL VIEW TO GO WITH THE GREAT VIEW. WE WERE TOLD UPON ARRIVAL PROMPTLY AT 6 PM THAT WAIT STAFF WAS NOT THERE YET FOR THOSE TABLES BUT WE COULD SIT IN THE BAR FOR "A SHORT TIME". 20 MINUTES LATER I ASKED ONE OF 3 HOSTESSES ABOUT THE TABLE AS SOME FOLKS WERE BEING SEATED AT THOSE TABLES. WE WERE SENT TO A TABLE FACING BALLY'S WHICH WE COULD SEE FROM OUR ROOM DESPITE THE WAIT. OUR WAITER TOOK 10 MINUTES TO SHOW UP JUST FOR THE DRINK ORDER. FORTUNATELY THE FOOD WAS EXCELLENT BUT THE MOOD WAS GONE. I WILL BE CHANGING MY ADVISE ON TRIP ADVISOR SOON.
Wonderful location for lunch. It was a gorgeous sunny day and the windows were open. Terrific mimosas. We had the salami pizza, muffalotta and the spinach bread salad. All were very good. Service was great and not rushed. We have not been for dinner but I highly recommend for lunch.
