Emeril's Italian Table

Last night we spent the night in the Sands Hotel and spent quite a few hours in the casino. Unfortunately, we did not think to get Sands playing cards. We played the slots for quite a few hours, and even though we didn't hit any jackpots, we had a very enjoyable time. Unfortunately for us, for dinner my cousin Paula made a reservation for 6:30 for the four of us at Emeril's Italian Table. We weren't called until 7:00. We started our meals with an appetizer of fried calamari. I can definitely say, because we are Italian, that it was the worst calamari we have ever had. It was followed by a mixed garden vegetables salad which was extremely wilted and the tomatoes were bad (sour). We referred to it as being a "dead" salad. We asked our waitress (a very nice young lady) to please take it back to the kitchen and give us a freshly made salad. The second salad came out the same way. We couldn't eat it. Our entrees consisted of 2 scampi and spaghetti entrees with five little shrimp which were drowning in enough oil to clog our arteries for a very long time. We were very disappointed with our meals overall, and felt that Emeril would like to know that his "bam" food was unsatisfactory. The other two meals were chicken piccata which was dry and tasteless, and the pasta and meatball entree which was tasteless. Our bill came to $120. We left the restaurant both disillusioned and hungry.
