One of the most amazing meals I have ever had. Save room for the soufflé.
Girls vacation. Two of us wanted to experience a little fine dining and love Giada’s cooking shows. The lobster ravioli was fabulous. The risotto and scallops not so much, but the presentation was lovely. It was hard to read the light colored print on the menu. Loved the ambience and the low lighting. Would recommend a darker print color on the menu. Would happily come back and try one of the meats on the menu. A bit pricey but you are paying to be at Giada’s.
We all chose the tasting menu and everything tasted great. My bucatini was perfect and my wife's lemon pasta was also very good. We had the filet which was perfect and the dessert cart was wonderful.
Always a wonderful meal, with great service, and energy. I’m sure I’ll be back and bringing lots of friends with me.

beautiful upscale restaurant with wonderful views, superb food, excellent wait staff
our primary server, I believe his name was Andrew, was outstanding and went out of his way to try to get us out in time for a play
all staff very attentive and helpful
best steak I have had in my life
My son wanted to eat here after his high school graduation - he requested to sit by the window so he could see the Bellagio fountains - he had a great view of the fountains— seated by the window, the waiter was excellent, food was great... everything was great. Glad we chose to dine here.
Way too loud, more then a hectic sports bar, not for a quiet birthday dinner
The bartenders were extremely knowledgeable and went out of their way to help us select the wine that we wanted. The food was exceptional.
We were there on a Monday night during a large convention week. Food and cocktails were outstanding.
We had a drink at the bar while waiting for a table because we arrived early. There was one bartender for the entire bar. He did an outstanding job trying to handle all of the customers, but it was poor staffing by the restaurant management. Regardless of this situation, it was a great dining experience.
Our waitress was amazing! She shared the stories about the food, the ingredients, the preparation and how all he combinations worked to make it an amazing dish....! One of my top 10 experiences!
I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone at this time. In the shows, Giada reflects friendship, family, and home goodness. However the restaurant was just the opposite. It was very disappointing that it has not been maintained. It reflected Giada as someone who just doesn't care about her friends, family and place. Although it may be just using her name, it was absolutely terrible. Seats were cracked, dishes were dirty with food dried on it, service was very slow and sloppy - giving us one menu for 8 of us to share, good grief! Food was moderate at best. The chicken was burnt, surprised they even served it up. Instead of taking a group picture for us to take home, we get a picture of Giada.
No doubt much needs to be improved to win back customers. Perhaps those who have a vested interest should dine there and experience this themselves and see how it has not been maintained.
We were celebrating my daughter's 17th birthday and we all enjoyed our dinner very much! We each (4 of us) had different entrees and they were all delicious. The desserts were out of this world and they made a special plate for my daughter! Thanks for a great night!
Everything from ambiance to food to service was impeccable. Frankly, the best meal I’ve had. I was hesitant about ordering steak at a place known for Italian food, but the bone-in filet was marvelous. Cooked to perfection with accompaniments that paired well. We brought our own wine because Vegas wine prices are stupid. Unlike other fine dining establishments on the strip, the sommelier was not put off, asked about our wine, and offered to chill it a bit for us as it was a little on the warm side. Overall an awesome meal and experience.
The food was amazing but it is very very loud. There was no way to have a conversation unless you yelled at eachother. I would still go back but at a different time so hopefully it will be quieter.
We went to Giada because it has a good reputation and gluten free pasta. Appetizers were good but vegetarian Bolognese was super salty - we ate it anyway because it was late and we were hungry. My main course pasta dish had to be sent back because it was super salty and inedible, and the replacement was also too salty to eat. Unbelievable. Waiter felt bad but had no good reason for this. We wondered if the gluten free pasta was the reason as each of those dishes was made with it - but whether it was the sauces or the pasta, it was unacceptable and surprising the kitchen would send that out. Won’t be going back.
When we first arrived we informed the hostesses that we had a reservation at 715. We expected to be seated on time however we were seated 15 minutes late. As we noticed that the restaurant was busy, we let that slide. However, our server was questionable. We ordered a medium rare steak and scallops and it took 40 minutes to arrive at our table. When the server came to inform us as to why it was taking so long, he said it was because the steak takes longer to cook. We knew instantly that he was not being honest with us because there was a private party of at least 15 people who had not received their entrees. We would have much rather him be honest with us and say the kitchen was backed up as opposed to another excuse. Finally, when our dishes arrived, they were delivered by another server who had apologized on his behalf. Our existing server noticed that I had not finished my steak and it was because it took so long that i had lost my appetite. I had paid for the steak regardless. The server then took it upon himself to give us a free dessert without our consent (servers should at least consult with the customers how to rectify a situation before taking initiative). Not even a manager came to apologize for the length of time. When our check came, we just paid cash and left as soon as possible because we did not want to engage with our server and his negligent and non conscientious service. The food itself was fine but definitely was not worth the wait and price....40 dollars for 4 regular sized scallops is absurd. Finally at the end of the night the unoccupied hostesses did not even inquire about our experience or say goodbye. For first time diners it was a very off putting experience. I know Giada would not tolerate what we experienced last night and we hope these issues are rectified for future diners.
Ordered Shrimp pasta Prawns were not deveined and very tough and had iodine taste.
Dates with wrapped bacon mushy tasting.
Did have good wait staff as they offered a different dish and compt a dessert. second dish pasta was rushed and not cooked.
If u want the soufflé order at beginning of meal or wait 35 minutes for it.
What a disappointing meal. Cannot fault the service, wait staff and sommelier we're attentive, engaging, and pleasant. They made a point to ask if we were in hurry, and we weren't, so they didn't rush us. The Led Zeppelin tunes were a little out of place in such an otherwise elegant setting.
We called ahead and asked about corkage, the $35 we were quoted was steep, but not unexpected...the $45 we were charged was a bit much.
Food-wise? Apparently salt is a principle component. From the focaccia bread to the veal to the charred version of medium-well done lamb, it was overpowering. My wife commented that we do a better job with Giada's recipes at home. Sorry.
Very nice meal, dessert was fantastic, lovely atmosphere, clean and welcoming 😊
Very dissatisfied! Service slow. Gilda needs to do a recheck on the operations as it bears her name??
Neighboring tables complained as well . Disappointed overall expetience.
The professionalism of our server Frederick made our experience that much better. The starting breads were tasty with a nice selection of dipping and spreads. We ordered the arugula and caprese salads. Both were fresh and had good flavour. For the mains we tried the lemon spaghetti and the chicken cacciatore. The spaghetti was wonderful, but the cacciatore was overly salty, quite greasy and in some ways unpalatable. Aside from this, the restaurant checked all of the boxes. A celebrity restaurant that didn’t disappoint.
The a mbiance in Giada's is great and the service is wonderful. It is rather high priced and the appetizer and dessert were much better than the actual main course. I have found that to be true with both brunch and dinner.
Ordered the calamari.. tasted salty. Had the chicken cacciatore for my main entry and it was also very salty. Was disappointed by both having such a salty taste. Wife had the halibut which was very good.
We have been to this restaurant many times. This time we were celebrating our anniversary, there was really nothing special from the service or the restaurant regarding our celebration. We're also seeded in probably one of the worst tables in the restaurant. Don't like to complain the food was good but the experience was not anniversary Worthy.
Giada at The Cromwell was fantastic. We were seated within 5 minutes of our reservation time. We had wonderful service and the food was fantastic. We will definitely dine here again.
Only bummer was that it was my birthday. Had been to the restaurant several times before and we were seated in the back. No view and basically in the back near the stairway. We will still go back as we love the food etc but hoping that the next visit we will be able to have a view.
Great place to eat in Vegas. A must do every time.
The food was excellent. A bit over priced for pasta
Celebrating my Birthday and it was a great dinner celebration. The food was amazing and the service was excellent. Hope to visit Giada again next time I am in Vegas.
Perfect in every way!
Gorgeous restaurant, delicious food, and wonderful service! Just make sure your wallet is ready before you decide to dine here!
Really enjoyed the cuisine and cocktails here. Amazing experience all around. Didn't see anything too appealing for deserts though
We had the most wonderful dinner at Giada's. Our Waiter, Rocco, was charming and attentive and treated us so specially. His recommendations were excellent and his friendly manner was so welcoming. We were especially touched by the hand written "Happy Anniversary" in chocolate on our dessert dish! Nice touch.
It is evident that Giada is involved in the aspects of this establishment, recipes are true to her tv personality and all fit the theme of authentic Italian. Service was exceptional, professional staff and welcoming atmosphere. A meal is pricier than average but wel worth it.
The restaurant was impeccable, service and food amazing! I appreciated the business casual attire rule .. the weekend we were in Las Vegas there was also a large rave. I would have been mortified if that dress code had been allowed to enter this very nice establishment. Kids are ok if the parents make them mind and teach them about dining in a nice restaurant like Giada's!
Lovely décor and airy atmosphere with high ceilings and an open feeling. We arrived at 2 pm and ordered from the brunch menu which was varied and interesting. For antipasti one can choose 3, 6 or 9 items (at varying prices) - we had 6 items for $18.00, which was delicious with my Peroni and her Bloody Mary, excellent value and, frankly, enough for three or four. For mains, I had the crab cannelloni and my date had the butternut squash and pancetta cavatelli. Both were reasonably-sized servings, carefully and freshly prepared and very tasty. Service was prompt and helpful and our waitress was engaged, knowledgeable and friendly with a comfortable, personal approach. The photo booth in the reception area was a fun way to remember our visit. Overall, we enjoyed Giada immensely and will definitely eat there again on our next trip to Las Vegas.
The food was outstanding again. They had the windows open and it was a little warm and very noisy. Our waiter was very slow and even spilled my Bellini. We felt neglected and if the food wasn't absolutely fabulous we would not consider going again. Very disappointed this time.
The food and service were outstanding. Everything we tried was delicious. Only complaint is that even though we had a reservation it still took over 20 minutes to get seated. And people who came in after us were seated before us.
Unfortunately - Lacking this time. Inconsistency out of the kitchen.
We tried the tasting menu for our group.
Several of the petite Filets came out "Well" instead of "Medium Rare" as requested.
The server took the 3 over cooked meats back but left the sides.
It took over 30 minutes for the repalcement Filets to come out.
We got back Rare + Med Rare + Med. Really - don't mess up the second time.
Sorry - for the money - Quality and Service need to be better.
