    My husband and I were very impressed by the food at Aquaknox. From the atomic cocktail sauce with our shrimp, to the incredibly delicious Green Goddess dressing on our Crab Louie salad, the freshness of the Tuna Tartar, the velvety perfection of the lobster bisque and then on to our entries (shrimp in creamed lobster sauce over pearl couscous, seared tuna), we found unusual but wonderful ingredients. We really loved our meal and would go back...tonight, if we weren't already back home. Thank you Aquaknox!

    My husband and I stopped in for dinner after a show. We don't often get alone time and boy was this the perfect evening. We started with the seafood plateau, which came with the BEST crab legs you will EVER have. Seriously the best EVER! For entrees my husband ordered the "Surf n Turf" Filet mignon served with a crab stuffed whole main lobster. I had the Scallops which came with a creamy corn polenta. Both of our dishes were fantastic! We didn't do much drinking, however Scott the sommelier did pair the perfect sweet wine for us. Zack was our server, he was outstanding he never missed a beat. Brian the manager stopped by to check on us and also sent out a mid course since we were on"Date Night" Made our evening even more special! Thank you!

    We were celebrating our engagement. They seated us in a semi private booth that had a romantic feel. The entire staff down to the wine sommelier were very accommodating and cheerful. The food was beyond expectation and the desert was capped off with a "Congratulations" inscribed in chocolate on the plate. It made the entire experience special.

    The pawns and especially the atomic sauce are not to be missed. Was disappointed that they no longer have John Dory on the menu. They have substituted Halibut in its place. It was not quite as tastey as the John Dory. Service was very good.

    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.

    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.
