AquaKnox locates in the hallway that connects Venetian hotel to Palazzo hotel in Las Vegas. I’ve walked by the restaurant many times, but never ate there. The design in front of the restaurant is very aquarium like decor, with blue water and bubbles. It’s easy to tell that’s a seafood restaurant, but it never appealed to me like the fine dining restaurant I would want to try. I finally went there last year. The experience was great!
For starter, I had fresh oysters. Needless to say, all the oysters I had in the great restaurants on the strip were always fresh and delicious. For main course, I had American Red Snapper and my friend had New Zealand John Dory. Both dishes were cooked just right; tender and not dry at all. The snapper was made with chive potato puree and wild mushroom with tomato vinaigrette. And the John Dory was made of lobster succotash, fava beans, and sweet corn with white truffle essence. The sauce added flavor to the already delicious fish. Beside the great food they offer, their services was excellent. The server was personable and attentive. The manager even came over and chatted with us about their business. Overall, I think AquaKnox is the best seafood restaurant I ever had on the strip!
