    The service was outstanding. Everyone was very friendly, greeted with a smile, and the table side service was very, very good. Our waiter(s) were incredibly nice and made a good honest effort to make conversation and be genuinely friendly. That was not a bad part of the experience at all. The menu was fine, not super elaborate, yet not at all traditional. The prices were reasonable, but don't expect this to be your average Red Lobster-style pricing. I did think that $97 for Surf and Turf was a bit extreme (even though it was a 10oz filet and a lobster). We ended up getting excited and ordering a "plateau" expecting some good seafood. Well, it was actually served cold (which we were not aware of) and the portion sizes were not as expected.

    Had dinner at AquaKnox based on good reviews. The service by our waiter Miller was very good and we enjoyed the food. But with all the outstanding restaurants in Las Vegas, the overall impression was there are several other choices for the same or less money where the experience would be more unique or the food just as good.

    Second time here and was not disappointed. Great seafood and their steaks are also excellent. Both times there for my wife's birthday while in Las Vegas, the second time also treated my daughter and son in law for second anniversary. Romantic and intimate dining experience. The food and wine compliment it. The wine steward had excellent knowledge.

    We've dined at numerous restaurants here and Aquaknox ranks among the best. The service, led by Jesse, was prompt and attentive from start to finish, warm and welcoming. My wife and I were treated like friends who had come for a visit. Began with Alaskan King crab legs, absolutely fresh and tasty. All the portions were generous. We also received complimentary tastings of a couple other items on the appetizer menu (fried squash blossoms), delicious. We ordered the surf and turf. The crab-stuffed lobster was wonderful, delicate not chewy, and flavorful. My wife declared the lobster the best ever. The filets were larger than expected and cooked to perfection. Not cheap but worth the money. We're locals and definitely will return!

    The Aqua Knox is your typical vegas high end spot with excellent choices on their menu. My husband and I are no strangers to dropping a few bills for a great meal, but this one took the cake. The chefs "special" was steak and lobster- a half lobster stuffed with crab-not whole. For a seafood resturant, the lobsters were horribly over cooked- nearly complete dry mush. And the stuffing was like crab salad.. Very subpar. The filet however was probably one of the best tasting and cooked I've ever enjoyed. The ambiance was there and our dual waiters were attentive yet not clingy nor did they linger too long. We had a couple of great appetizers and the chef sent out his nightly taste as well. Over all great- just not a 100 plate worthy

    We went in to participate in restaurant week to help donate to Three Square's food bank. This restaurant did not have a menu printed for it, nor did the server mention it which was disappointing because its such a wonderful charity event. I asked about it and he went over it. However, this is my only complaint... The food was excellent. The lobster bisque does have some spice which should be mentioned.. But it's so good! Stuffed lobster was cooked perfect.. I did ask them to deshell the claws. And the trout on the restaurant week menu was cooked perfect. Both servers gave near perfect service... Not pushy but there when u needed them. We went in right at 11 and I expected to get pushed out of there but nope... They welcomed us. Bravo!

    We went for restaurant week but have been here before. Everything was great, from the salads to the dessert. Their lobster bisque is one of the best and does not suffer from too much salt as in many other restaurants. The burrata salad had thin slices of white peach which was a perfect complement. Both the ocean trout and steak entrees were prepared just right. The crispy skin on the trout was very tasty. All in all, a fabulous meal. The service matched the food. Waitstaff were very engaging and knowledgable. We even got a visit from the executive chef to see if everything was good.

    Went there last year for the restaurant week & was already surprised by how well the food and service were. Came back this year & it was even better. Kept spoiling us by giving us different kinds of complimentary amuses.The best amuse was the oyster.Not your average oysters from the buffet.Excellent service.Food was great.Famous for its seafood like the rich lobster bisque but the prime rib cap we had for the last 2 years was a hidden gem.Its off the menu so you can only have it during the summer restaurant week. Somehow the restaurant had a record of us dining there before so they brought a 'happy anniversary' banana pudding which I liked so much last year.The extra final course of a limoncello shot & white chocolate truffle was so yummy.

    I have eaten here for the past 5 years - and I always get the crab stuffed lobster. The dish is superb. But this last time was not nearly as good as my previous visits. I found the lobster to be a littel overcooked and dry. I suppose it was possibly the lobster itself, but I never had this issue before. I will still come to this restaurant and order this particular meal - unless I find that my current experience becomes a pattern, rather than the exception.

Excellent seafood tower. I wanted to try the halibut, but sadly they were out if it. Good steak options available if someone in your party doesn't like seafood. The banana cream pie is a must try for dessert.

    An amazing experience, my wife and I experienced to us what was an amazing meal here while celebrating our marriage. The atmosphere was serene, romantic and although there were other guests it felt private. Everyone was so polite and knowledgeable of not only the menu but everything offered. Food was amazing as as the presentation. We enjoyed the Tartare and oysters for starters both were outstanding...the wife and I seriously considered ordering a few more Tartares for desert and the oysters were so clean, crisp and fresh tasting. For our main course we each enjoyed surf and turf with a 8oz filet mignon and lobster. The filet honestly melted in our mouths, it was seasoned and cooked to perfection. We will eat here each time we visit.
