We have always had a great meal at the Nautilus. The food is always inventive and the service is top shelf. Additionally, the bartender really knows how to make a good drink. The atmosphere is casual and always welcoming. Highly recommended as I believe the food to be among the best on the strip.

Once again our group was totally impressed by the selection on the menu, the quality and appeal, and the best service we could possibly expect. It was Sunday at 1 PM, so there was a quite small crowd so our conversation level was perfect.

The Nautilus Cafe is a very good choice for fish or meat. The food is always done to perfection and the staff is attentive. They offer a BYOB with a minimal corkage fee and also have specials. We have enjoyed dining there for years and will continue to do so.

Seated promptly for 8pm NYE dinner. Table was in a bit cramped location, but it was a last minute reservation. Bay scallops app, halibut, swordfish and key lime dessert were all excellent.
Two minor hiccups; server splashed a bit of hot tea water on hand, and a bit of difficulty getting second glass of wine. But, particularly considering level of activity NYE , staff were attentive, and efficient. If you have not tried it, by all means, do. You will be happy that you did.

Nautilus is a longtime favorite. It has maintained a high level of food and service over the years.
I wish I could afford to eat there more often. Its priced fixed menus and early birds do help.
All in all the prices aren't eye-popping considering the quality of the food.
