Giada - The Cromwell Ratings and Reviews
Food was outstanding albeit pricey (but probably par for Vegas). Service was very good. Decor very relaxing. Only complaint was the noise level. Very difficult to carry on a conversation except with person sitting right next to me. Even then, we had to lean over and speak into each other's ear. Also, the ergonomics of the forks/spoons/knives made them a challenge for anyone with arthritis or other dexterity issues. Would definitely go again.
As usual the food was superb. We had a window table and could watch the people go by. The waiter was very attentive and we shared two appetizers--parmesan with wild honey and the Marcela meat balls--both were exquisite. The entrees were the creamy risotto with shrimp (pieces cut up), asparagus and two perfectly done scallops and spaghetti with2 giant prawns (shrimp) that tasted like lobster. My wife had the persecco and I had the pino gregio.
No room for desert.
My only recommendation is that the hostesses learn how to make it easier for a handicap person. My wife has difficulty walking and she wanted us to wind all around tables to get to ours. After hesitating she finally pointed out another stairs (3 steps) that could take us down. if we would have gone down the ramp it would have been worse.
Still a memorable meal and evening.
We had a most wonderful evening. Our server, Fred, was fantastic. Very helpful in suggesting choices and attentive in his service. In fact the whole team worked seamlessly together. From Gilda's favorite Antipasti to the Veal Saltimboca. All was well prepared and presented. Definitely end the evening with a Limoncella Soufflé!
I'd looked forward to my dining experience for a couple of months. The atmosphere inside is beautiful, and while the view of the strip is appealing with the ability to have open windows, it made for an awful lot of background noise which at times left me feeling like I was having to holler across the table to my friend. I ordered an Italian favorite hoping it was going to be somewhat like my mother's but was disappointed that it was not. It was good - but not like mom's.
I will say it was a good dining experience, but it wasn't nearly as spectacular as I'd hoped.
I really enjoyed my experience at Giada's at the Cromwell. Everything was first class from when I was greeted when I entered, while being quickly taken care of at the bar and then being cared for by the tremendous staff that perfectly created my wonderful dining experience. The only thing that would have made the experience more enjoyable would have been to meet Giada herself but I have a beautiful autographed picture of her so that will have to do. Thank you again to the entire Giada's team and I will be sure to stop in Giada's again when there is an opportunity.
This was a total disappointment. I am a big fan and watch her show all the time but her portions were small and expensive . The service was bad.I ordered the risotto with scallops and crab. There wasn't any crab and only 2 chewy scallops! The manage took it off my bill. I wouldn't recommend this restraunt to anyone.
Excellent food and service. We really enjoyed our experience here. You can tell they have taken the time to really develop a good menu and train their staff. Highly recommend dining here. It also has a great view of the Strip since it is on the second floor.
disappointed in entres apps good but entres pasta too aldente after ate rigatoni with bolonase had the runs something bad about it. my gluten free friend had fried polanta substituted without asking- why couldn't high end chef fry it separately in pan so shed get entre as described. hand made pasta disappointing tastes raw flour in spaghetti.
The quality of the food was subpar. The only thing that made the meal tolerable was the view of the belaggio fountains. Otherwise, the entire meal was shameful. Ive pretty much decided that your best option in Vegas is
1- in n out
2- del taco
3- grocery store
Anything else is hit or miss at too costly a price point. Buyer beware.
As a local I have been here numerous times. My son's girlfriend is a huge fan of Giada so I thought this would be great... although she loved the place here is a few of my comments.. we sat in the bar area for a good 30 minutes waiting for a window seat and not one person came over to see if I wanted a drink.. I didn't care for the grilled cheese sandwich, way to much pesto on the bread for me.. service was wonderful and ambiance can't be beat.. if you are visiting a real must
Very Disappointed!! The waiter paid attention to everyone but our table of 6. The appetizers were very good but 4 of us ordered the lobster ravioli which was recommended by previous diners and was looking forward to tasting the fish and thinking it was amazing. It was anything BUT! The dishes all came out cold, the pasta was not al dente but tough and the truffles were tasteless. The waiter was not apologetic and made a comment he'd let the chef know. You'd think with all four of us saying something he'd be more concerned. He did have one removed from the bill which was appreciated. We were all looking forward to an amazing Italian dinner and were let down.
Most of the food was wonderful. The main courses were all very small though. Dessert display was gorgeous and I regret not trying something. The shareable platters on the tasting menu, I believe, are the way to go. Delicious shrimp, delicious Crostini options(especially the Riccota, Lemon, Honey, and Pink Peppercorn one). However, I did feel that the dough/crust on the pizette could have been better. The Bucatini pasta was absolutely perfect in every way (texture/al dente/ sauce). Lemon chicken soup was underwhelming. Greatly enjoyed almost all of the food and the ambiance was very nice, very contemporary and feminine. Lastly, the service at Giada's is exceptional. I liked it very much.
Had been looking forward to trying Giada's restaurant as I am a huge fan of her, however, was very disappointed in the dinner service food and pricing. Signature pasta dish was nothing special and shrimp on the dish were over cooked. Not to mention the price of the dish was way too high. $34 for two shrimp and a single portion of pasta is insane. The bacon wrapped dates had very little sausage and Gorgonzola dulce sauce portion was skimpy. The seating took an additional 20 minutes from our reservation time and dinner service was very slow and lacking in attentiveness. The only positive was our Bar experience. Service at the bar was top notch and cocktails were delicious.
My sister and I took a trip to Vegas to celebrate our 50th & 60th birthdays and this was our celebratory dinner. It took a while to be seated, but it was worth it because we had a window seat with a great view of the Bellagio. We ordered two appetizers - bacon wrapped dates & eggplant. In the meantime, we received the bread tray which was amazing. My sister eats gluten free most of the time, but went off just for this. The appetizers were very good. We also ordered the cosmopolitan blanco, which was supposed to be a white cosmo. I was disappointed as it was pink, like any regular cosmo because they ran out of the white cranberry juice. Not worth the $15 price tag as I've had better cosmos. We both ordered the risotto entrees, but my sister substituted chicken. It was creamy and divine. Then dessert - the lemoncello soufflé and Americanos. Best coffee I have every had next to Kona in Hawaii. The service was slow, but overall it was a good experience and the food was great. I'm planning to go back next time I'm in Vegas.
The restaurant was so noisy that we couldn't even carry on a conversation. Our food was cold when it was finally brought to us, people who ordered after us were served before we were, our waiter did not ask us if we needed anything after our meal was brought or offer fresh grated cheese. We were looking forward to an evening eating amazing Italian food and we were very disappointed. The meal definently was not worth the money we paid for it.
Our original table was too loud because a large party was 30 feet from our table. We were moved to a small room where the people at the neighboring table guests were ear piercing loud. The evening felt like an assembly line push. The food was not good and expensive. Disappointing. I'll guess Guadalupe hasn't been to her restaurant in a while.
