Just got back from a strange Vegas trip. Too many weird problems with poor service, bad rooms and crappy dining. Figured I would post my Valentine's Day review of Giadas in case anyone is planning a night there. I do get that everyone's experience can be different. Unfortunately this was ours. Had a Valentine's dinner reservation. Requested a window seat 3 months previous. Was not honored as they require you to commit to a minimum $100 per person for a window seat. Ok, I missed that one in the original reservation. We were seated in a horrible row of tables that were backed by a cushioned bench on one side. The most uncomfortable dining seat I have ever had. Felt like a little kid trying to sit at the adult table. Keep in mind that I'm a slim 6' so the problem was not with me. The tables were so close together that it was very uncomfortable when I or the guest beside me had to shimmy in sideways to squeeze into our bench. Do you go in front facing, or rear facing? I missed that lesson in etiquette class. I was closer to the guy beside me than I was to my wife across from me. With the noise in the restaurant conversation was almost impossible. We were attended by two waiters. Unfortunately I could not hear them as they couldn't fit between the tables to get closer, and without yelling, communication was not possible. Basically they spoke to my wife and she leaned over to relay to me. Bread plate was good. Nothing special. Prosciutto was good, but when isn't it. Bacon wrapped dates were delicious. I would get those as take out if I could. We each had soup. My wife's squash was good. My mushroom tasted like canned pea soup. She had the tortellini which she loved. I had lobster ravioli which I guess was ok. By that time in the meal I was so uncomfortable I just wanted it to end. Drinks were good. I can't remember what i had, and would have had another if the waiter asked, but he didn't. He just leaned over, grabbed my empty glass and walked away. Over all it was extremely disappointing. No pasta dish is worth what they are charging, but the ambiance is supposed to make up for it. Unfortunately it didn't. Funny, I was at a comped buffet a few days later and they had the same crappy bench seats. But you didn't have to shimmy sideways to sit down.
