  • Our Go To Restaurant in Vegas

    I have been to Ventanos on many occasions and have never been disappointed. The menu is extensive and they always have interesting specials. On this occasion took out a Vegan friend for a casual get together. I had the shrimp special and my wife the snapper special. Both were prepared to perfection. Our friend had a pasta arabica and loved it. Service is always good. The view of the Las Vegas valley at sunset is always awe inspiring. I think Ventanos is a restaurant that can satisfy many tastes and has become my "go to" restaurant when taking people out for a first dining experience in Henderson.

  • Average "chain"-style dining
    AriaVIP
    Dined on 8/24/2014
    The food here is very average - about the calibre you would expect from a chain restaurant (although I don't know if it is actually a chain). Salads are overdressed, pastas are heavy and oversauced, food is slightly oversalted. Service is friendly, if a bit clueless and sometimes slow. Menus are outdated, so some prices are actually $1-2 higher than what it says on the menu, and no, they don't honor their advertised prices. Ambiance is reasonably nice. Coffees and wines are average. Portions are generous and may last you a couple of meals. OK, all in all. Worth it if you are hungry and don't have a better option in mind.

    Food is delicious! Chef has daily fish and beef specials. You may have any dish with any sauce. I prefer the miso, my wife prefers the chili, both are great on any fish. For an appetizer you MUST try the "Shrimp on a Stone."

    Have not been to Ventano's for quite some time since earlier experiences were mediocre. Well something has definitely changed for the better. The three of us ordered a variety of things from chicken to tortellini to the filet mignon special. All were terrific and portions were generous enough that we took home what we could not finish. Happy to have a local restaurant of this quality. It was a busy Saturday night and our server had his hands full. Will go back during the week to try the eggplant.

    We were on a recent business trip to Vegas, but wanted dinner somewhere that was more of a locals' restaurant. We found Ventano's through reviews on both TripAdvisor and Yelp and it sounded like a place we'd love... and it is! Food, service, ambiance and views were spectacular. We recommend the shrimp on stone and the mussels for apps. I had the cioppino and it was good, sorry to say I don't remember what my wife ordered. You receive complimentary bread and it's great too! We were too stuffed to enjoy desert, but I bet it's great also.

    Excellent dining at Ventano! The food is always excellent and the service is impeccable. We typically order one of the chef's daily specials as there is always a beef and a fish special. One thing to know is that you can always select a different sauce or sides at no additional charge.

    have eaten here before. I had the Dover sole special, which turned out be a quarter of the filet...never had this small a portion before. My wife had salmon which was dry. Another lady had a pasta dish which was so-so she said. The other man ordered ribs, which he liked. Attentive service. Prices fair. My wife vows not to return.

    We had a wonderful time and the food was great. My lady had the "special" of Orange Roughy which was fantastic but I felt it was just a little over priced for an Italian restaurant. But it was good but really not a good value.

    Food quality has gone down terribly. Lasagna was solid meat with a little cheese on top drowning in sauce. Eggplant parmigiana was three THIN slices of mush. And mushroom risotto was nasty, maybe old mushrooms? Not sure when or if we will ever go back.

    The food was very good, especially the calamari appetizer. That was surprisingly tender and flavorful. It was a huge serving though, so my daughter and I couldn't finish our meal. My only complaint was that we had reservations at 6:30 and didn't get seated until after 7:00. If you are looking for reasonably priced yummy Italian food in Henderson with a great view of the strip, this is the place!

    We've been looking for a "go to" Italian dinner spot and we've found it. After a few visits we find the consistency of the food to be excellent, always on spot and a varied menu to boot. We've had the Chicken Parmiagiana, Lasagna, Lamb, shrimp and pasta and loved each dish. The spinach salad is the best. Great atmosphere and good service, a little slow at times, but overall good. Including the atmosphere the experience is very good.

    It has been a while since we've dined at Ventano's and I was surprised that the dining room was filled for a Sunday night. Both entrees were good but the lobster ravioli was swimming in sauce. The bread wasn't great; seems store bought? The window closest to our table was smudged and oily from the previous seating.

    A convenient neighbourhood restaurant that is great for a special dinner with friends and family. It has an extensive menu with both traditional and seafood specialties. I have not gotten around to the more common dishes but the house specialties were wonderful. Both salads and main dishes are large enough to split and next time my wife and I will try to share all of the courses rather than just focus on a salad and main dish.

    We've been dining here since 2003 and it's always been wonderful. The Mother's Day special menu had some delightful choices. I had the halibut, which was a bit overcooked but the crab cake was quite nice. Their fare off the standard menu is always excellent. View is spectacular.

BESIDES FOR THE OUTSTANDING FOOD AT A DECENT PRICE, YOU ALSO GET A SPECTACULAR VIEW, FRIENDLY SERVICE AND ALL THE AMENITIES WHICH GO ALONG WITH A GREAT DINING EXPERIENCE. THE ONLY POSSIBLE SUGGESTION IS TO PROMOTE MORE ADVERTISEMENT BECAUSE NO MATTER A PERSON'S CHOCIE OF FOOD, THEY WILL ALWAYS LEAVE COMPLIMENTING VENANO'S AND REMEMBER IT WHEN A DINING OCCASION ARISES. PLEASE DON'T CHANGE, KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK AND THANKS AGAIN FOR ANOTHER GREAT MEMORY!!!
