This charming Las Vegas restaurant welcomes diners with warm colors, comfortable furniture and natural lighting thanks to the restaurant’s huge retractable windows.

We were a party of four. Each got a different dish and shared. Lobster ravioli and crab entrees were excellent. Rigatoni Bolanase very tasty also. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. I would definitely go back.

My wife follows Giada, religiously, on the Food Network. Normally restaurants that have the "hype" don't live up to that "hype", but that is NOT the case here.
From the moment we rode the escalator up to the reception area until the moment we rode back down, it was beyond our best expectations.
Our server Radoslava was amazing and his recommendations were top notch.
Our food was prepared perfectly, served promptly and the presentation was awesome.
The pricing was far below what we anticipated and was very fair for the portions served.
The seating was perfect for us to celebrate our 41st Anniversary as we had a window seat with the windows wide open.
We would highly recommend this dining spot for a great meal.

Great ambiance, friendly hostess, and knowledgeable waiter. Veal Chop Saltimbocca tasted amazing but the White Lasagna tasted like the seafood in it was rancid or not fresh at all. Then the waiter said it's because it's cooked for an hour and a half!

This was our 4th time at Giada's. It has always been a 'go to' place whenever we are in Las Vegas. Tuesday was most disappointing.
We were seated at a table by a window and had the sun in our eyes, blowing drapes and the street noise level was so loud we couldn't hear each other. Our server spoke so fast (my husband wearing a hearing aid could not hear or understand her. We told her and were moved over one table over (still in her section) but the noise continued.
The selection has not changed much and we were disappointed there was no daily special. A glass of wine cost $17 (which seemed extreme for lunch). I ordered the orzo meatballs and my husband ordered the muflfetta. The muffletta was dry and needed olive oil (which the server brought). The zucchini strings were tasteless (and no salt or pepper on the table). I had requested some bread with my meatballs. The server brought a wooden board with warm bread.
There was a man at street level pounding plastic containers (his drums), which increased the noise level even more! They wait staff closed the windows which muffled the noise a bit.
When we received our bill, we were shocked the bread costs us $6.00! I believe the server should have mentioned it.
Also, the hostess dress was ripped (under her arm) and just seemed messy. Given the price of our 'lunch' and with so many other options, I am not sure we would return.

The restaurant is beautiful and should be a lovely, romantic spot for fine dining and a respite from the clattering cacophony of the casinos. But it was WAY TOO NOISY! There is nothing to absorb the sound from diners and on top of that they play Rock and EDM at high volume with the thumping bass drowning out normal conversation. Since when did Rock and EDM become music to accompany fine dining? Thankfully, the service was very good due to our efficient, personable waiter, Timmy. The food was pretty good with the exception of my salmon, which I ordered medium well. The thicker end of the piece was raw in the middle. And I think pairing it with beets was a little odd. But we thoroughly enjoyed our appetizers (sweet peppers with goat cheese and Buffalo Mozzarella Ciliegine) and my husband's rack of lamb entree and chocolate leaning tower dessert were very good. The rosemary bread was excellent. We would only consider going back if they fixed the noise problem.

My friend and I were really looking forward to our meal here and and the experience of the food. I've eaten at Giada's on two other occasions and really enjoyed it, but this time we were very disappointed. Our reservation was for 8:00pm and we arrived 10 min early and sat at the bar waiting to be seated for 45 min! The bartender was very nice and helpful, but we were pretty hungry by the time we were seated. The noise level was intense, super loud, so maybe not the best for a business meeting or date as its a struggle to hear one another across the table. The food we ordered was good, but the delivery of the food was very poor. We received our appetizer promptly, and salads shortly thereafter, but waited about 50 min for our entrees. Our waiter explained there was a large party ahead of us and our ticket was delayed, but by that time it was 10pm and we were pretty much ready to go. I really think a restaurant of this caliber should be prepared for larger parties and should not serve them at the detriment of their smaller parties. The large party likely had a reservation, as did my party, but it seemed the restaurant was a bit chaotic for a Monday night. It's unfortunate, but I probably won't return.

Reservation time was running 45 mins late. We decided to eat at the bar instead of waiting for our reserved table. Bread was the BEST ever but we had to ask for it and the entree spaghetti with lemon and shrimp was overcooked and other than salt (shrimp) was pretty much tasteless. Giada is clearly living off her reputation.

We were in Las Vegas for a special occasion. Giada's tv show is a favorite of my wife and she really wanted to try it. We had a wonderful meal and the service, food and atmosphere are fabulous. We will go back in a heartbeat when we are back in Vegas!

Third time there, food was as always outstanding! The service was a bit disjointed in that we were left waiting for a long time between courses (enough time for us to need more bread) and when the main course arrived the polenta was runny but we could not find our server for a long time so we ended up eating the runny food.

I am not a Giada follower so I was not prepared to have everything taste like lemon. I grew up in Maryland (known for crab dishes) and was very disappointed with the crab dip, which tasted like lemon with dry, stringy crab pieces in it. The lobster ravioli was delicious, but had a lemon butter sauce - too much lemon.

My husband and I enjoyed the Tasting Menu. Everything was great! Only complaint was the choice of music over the speakers. It didn't match the ambiance of the place. Some nice Italian music would have been much better. Waiter Tim and helper Jim, were very attentive. Just love Giada! Was very appreciative of the gluten free products. Thanks for a great evening!

I have dined at Giadas many times. The last two have been very disappointing. We were told they couldn't sit us at the time of our reservation as to let the wait staff get "caught" up. We waited in the bar area for another 30 minutes and never was offered a drink.We ordered the antipasto plate and had barely started before they asked us to pull our plates to the side to make room for our entrees! This same experience happened the last time we dined at Giadas! The food is delicious but the management of the service is horrendous!!

This is another typical tourist restaurant headlined by a celebrity chef. This is basically Olive Garden fare. The dining room decor is California modern situated on busy corner of the strip. Bottom line: the food is not well cooked, not tasty and not on par for the high prices and expectation of finer dining.

Went for dinner. It was really busy and even though we had a reservation we had to wait 20mins. Overall it was really good. The burrata was one of the best we have ever had. The salmon was absolutely fantastic. The Portions are small so orders apps but avoid the oysters Rockefeller. They were the only think we disliked.

6 months ago we visited this restaurant without reservations for Sunday Brunch, we were turned away due to no capacity even though the restaurant was about 1/8th full. Last Sunday 10/16 we made reservations this time, we were very excited as we are fans of Giada from her Food Network shows. We sat for 43 minutes until our appetizer showed up, mind you we ordered prosciutto so all they had to do was slice it, it was accompanied by 2 mustard sauces. I ordered the Italian Fried Chichen and Polenta waffles, something you don't hear much about something different they were ok, absolutely nothing that met my expectations coming from Giada. My wife ordered the Lobster Hash. Her meal was tasty but $35 for Lobster hash is a bit on the high side, I only say that as the lobster portion was very very small but hey it's Giada you have to try everything once. Although our waitress was very friendly and nice she was overwhelmed with the number of tables she was tending too, her service was way below Vegas service level. We were disappointed we would not recomend or visit this venue again.

Second time to eat at Giada's. My BFF and I agree that it will be a standing tradition every time we visit Las Vegas. Not only was our food fabulous, we had outstanding service. I'm unsure of her name but believe it was Elana.

My husband and I went on a "date", we've always wanted to go to Giadas so we went for Brunch. My husband had the Lobster Hash, which he loved and I had the Caprese Fritada, which was very good except that water seeped out of the mozzarella cheese on to my fritada and that part wasn't very appealing . I think toast should come with the Fritada, I had to order it separately .

We were so excited to eat here and then it was disappointing. They sat us near a service prep stand, so loud glass, silver clanking noise. I asked them if it would be loud by the table and she said....I certainly hope not.....well it was. Opening and shutting of doors . It Took them 20 minutes to get us ice water. They appeared disorganized. We had 3 waiters. Food was marginal. It was so loud, hard to visit. I have to think Giada herself would not be pleased.

Seating was timely--within 5 minutes of our scheduled reservation. Our waiter, Rocco, was attentive and helpful with selection of the appetizer and entrees. Both of our entrees, the lobster ravioli and 7 oz. filet, were well prepared and we thought were worth the price.

The food was great. We were seated right by the window overlooking the Las Vegas Strip. One of the best views of any restaurant there. This is our 3rd time eating here and everything was very good. The only slight complaint was the long time it took to get our cocktails after ordering them. One of our favorite restaurants in Vegas.

Always love dining at Giada. Did brunch this time, but dinner is also amazing. Impeccable service, especially with food allergies they were very diligent. One of the few on the strip places that is worth going to! Oh and Kale Farro salad was delish:)

I have been here 3 times and I cannot wait to go back! The food is divine! The moment you arrive until you drag yourself away, the staff treats you like royalty, the food is first rate and the ambiance is perfect!

This is our 6th time to eat at Giada's. The food is first class. The bread course and accompanying items is amazing. We don't eat large amounts, so we were put off that the tasting menu was $120 each. Instead, we had the bread, fabulous entree's, and decadent deserts. FYI: her lemon cookies are amazing.
We made our reservations several weeks in advance. The lady who took my phone reservation at the restaurant upset me when she said that we had to guarantee that we would spend $100 each in order to have a seat by the window. We have been seated by the window 2 times before without that threat.
