AquaKnox in the Venetian offers diners sophisticated seafood and steak selections in a gorgeous atmosphere. When guests arrive, they are greeted by a visually appealing dining room including an open kitchen and massive wine wall. The restaurant’s aquatic vibe prepares diners for the fresh menu featuring dishes with Mediterranean and Asian influences. From the signature Fish Soup and Maine Lobster Bisque to the Butterscotch Bread Pudding every course at AquaKnox is deliciously memorable. Seafood selections such as the Meyer Lemon-Herb Stuffed Grilled Branzino, the Maryland Blue Lump Crab-Stuffed Maine Lobster, and Seared Fennel Pollen Sea Scallops are favorites, but the talented chefs also offer a variety of mesquite char grilled steak and poultry entrees. AquaKnox has received multiple awards from the Forbes Travel Guide (including 4 Star Awards in 2016-18), Wine Spectator, and has been listed as one of the 10 Freshest Seafood Restaurants in Las Vegas according to USA Today.

Food was mostly good. Some dishes were great but some missed the mark. My grilled white prawns were amazing but the sauce in the curry mussels was a little bland. My sister said the gnocchi was good but not best she's ever had. Our dirty martinis were amazing, possibly best I'd had in awhile. Server was very friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was OK. Felt like I was in a hotel restaurant. Nothing too spectacular

My friends card was declined yet there was more than sufficient funds. My card was charged twice. When I checked transactions there was small amounts I was unsure off. My friend had in fact been charged despite not signing as they said it had been declined. By morning one my second amount had been cancelled but some of the small transactions were still present

We had late reservations (9 PM) due to my Hubby’s conference. They called to let me know that the kitchen closed at 9:45 PM, so we needed to make sure we were there earlier if possible. The food was amazing, but we felt like we needed to rush with as many times as they kept coming back to see us. A little too over attentive.

This was my second visit in as many years. The service was excellent, but to me that's why you pay the kind of prices you do at fine restaurants. I had a filet which was perfectly cooked, but to be totally truthful it was a little hard to cut. Better cutlery would help. My friends were happy with their meals as well. We had a lovely time and will be back.

The food was very good, the service time was extremely slow. Additionally, the restaurant advertises an $89/person special in front of the restaurant. However, the sign was not noticed by our party until the next day. When we inquired, then, with the hostess; she indicated the wait staff is not expected to mention this special. Several in our party paid full menu pricing for the exact items included in the special. The is a deceitful practice. We will not return.

Food was just OK. The service was underwhelming. I was hosting a business dinner for 9. The appetizer pricing and options were not explained well at all. I ordered the big seafood appetizer understanding it would be enough for the whole table. After thinking it through, I had the waiter come back and he then explained they would be bringing 4 of them @ $83 each. He allowed me to cancel it, which was good, but I was a bit embarrassed. 8 of us were served our meals but the 9th guests meal was missing. They either forgot to put it in, or the kitchen messed up. I dine out frequently, and I understand things happen. They did bring her a bowl of soup to eat while the rest of us had our meals.

When the bill came, they did comp the meal they messed up, so they did make it right, which was appreciated. They also removed the automatic gratuity and allowed me to figure my own tip. I still tipped 20% because I don't believe the missing meal was the server's fault.

To be a successful restaurant in Vegas, you have to be top notch and provide exceptional service. Aquaknox was disappointing. The overall dining experience was OK at best. With Delmonico right next door, and tons of other options very close by, they'll need to improve if they want to keep their spot in the Venetian.

This resteraunt is located in the Venetian. They serve seafood with the ambiance of being under water (everything is blue). While accommodating for kids, this is definitely not a place to take kids under 8. Prices are very high, while the food is of great quality (very complex tastes). A great spot for a date or special occasion.

Aquaknox Fish soup outstanding! Did not expect amount and quality of fish in delicious tomato broth over couscous. I had filet mignon mesquite grilled with Madeira sauce- melted like butter in your mouth. Expensive but good portions of excellent prepared foods! Definitely will go back.

This restaurant didn't meet my expectations, the servers dint treat you as a welcome guest, if you have a question of the menu they answer but not in a friendly manner.

This was the second try I gave to this restaurant and that was it, next time Red Lobster will be better and chipper, at least better service, the worst of all was that the restaurant was empty only a few tables were occupied, now I know why.
