Spiedini Restaurant Review

: Master chef-restaurateur Gustav Mauler’s spacious, high-ceilinged Spiedini offers seating in a main dining room, a banquet room and on its outdoor patio shaded by a European-style canopy. Many of the windows view the resort's lavish palm trees, gardens, waterfalls and ponds. For starters, we like the pepper-crusted beef carpaccio with baby greens, mustard aïoli and Parmesan, and the spinach salad with pears, Gorgonzola, crispy prosciutto, candied walnuts and balsamic dressing. The signature dish, lobster ravioli with a touch of Cognac and lobster sauce, is a favorite, as is the lobster and shrimp fra diavolo over linguine. Slow-roasted over the spiedo’s open flames, roasted pork crusted with garlic and fennel and a half chicken with herbs and lemon are served with garlic mashed potatoes and vegetable ratatouille. Carnivores like the 16-ounce grilled rib-eye steak with rosemary potatoes, onion rings and grilled asparagus. Among desserts are espresso-soaked tiramisu and espresso fudge ice cream cake.

Valentine's Dinner

I must say that my experience with Spiedini's was excellent.

First Impression: Upon arrival I was promptly greeted by the receptionist, and was quickly whisked away to our table. I had noticed that this restaurant had a decent seating capacity, and the tables were well laid out, meaning that there was enough space in between tables that you can have privacy and at the same time not feel like you were in a deserted island. Exactly what I was looking for a intimate dinner. My only suggestion is to have proper table lighting, because the restaurants lighting was just a little too dim to properly read the menu.

First impression: Very Good.

Service: The server that assisted us was very kind. She was not the straight-jacket type. a good thing in my opinion. She did not seem in a hurry, or rude. We had ordered a salad, a handcrafted pasta, 2 main courses and dessert, all of which came timely. What made this server great was that, she asked us if we were sharing, and decided for us that we get a plate each that had the 2 main courses and the pasta already in them. Good call. On to desert, we got the desert trio, and the server noticed I wanted the tiramisu and suggested substituting 1 of the 3 with it. Good call again. Service was Excellent, a thinking server, is always better than a robot with a tux.

Service: Excellent.

Food: Osso buco was moist and fell of as soon as the knife cut into it. Short rib ravioli was sweet and creamy, the pasta was not chewy, the filling and the sauce was just enough, it did not overpower the pasta. Rule 1 in a pasta dish, the pasta is the star. by the way, toasted prosciutto is a awesome sub for bacon in a salad, or chicken dish. Desert was very good, tiramisu was on the spot, as well as the creme brulee.

Food: Excellent.

If your looking for a quiet, intimate Italian dinner off the strip, I strong suggest Spiedini's. Bravo!
 
Terrible!!!

Spiedini looks lovely to the eye, with beautiful decor. But the good stops there. To start with, our server was slow to greet us. Her table manner was terrible, what you would expect from a waitress at a roadside diner. We ordered a lovely bottle of wine, and discovered that our server had no knowledge of the wine list and did not know anything about wine service. Our appetizer (grilled calamari) was passable, but my Chicken Parmesan entree was dry, and my husband's steak was overcooked. We sent it back, only to be delivered back with a small piece of fatty meat.

This was one of the worst dining experiences I have had, and I recommend that no one dine there.
