My wife and I went to Onyx last week and we were thoroughly impressed with the service, drink menu and especially the food menu. My wife had the tenderloin and it was fantastic. I ate the Thai curry Ling-cod and was blown away. if coming to White Rock this is definitely a restaurant that you should visit!

The Onyx never disappoints. Special dinner, out with my mother in law. Our waitress was colourful and fun, knowledgable about the menu. Mushroom tapas are delish, filet perfect. Classy atmosphere.

Went here a couple days ago for the first time. The mash potatoes had no flavour, steaks were overcooked. We didn't even get our side of mushrooms I guess the server forgot? First and last time here. Why bother when there's so many other restaurants in the area.

We have been to onyx on several occasions. The food is usually ok, it's nothing special I usually get a striploin and my girlfriend gets the salmon entree. Last night we visited and wow has this place ever went downhill. It wasn't even busy and we still had a long wait for our food. When it arrived I was disgusted.... More

You would think when you make a reservation that you wouldn't have to wait 30 minutes just to get seated at the bar. Well at Onyx that is what you get. Terrible terrible service. Ignored by the bartender and staff while time slowly creeps by. Even when we finally got to our table I had to ask a random server... More

This was our first time at the restaurant. It was very busy probably because of the taste of white rock. The service was terrible, The stuffed Yorkshire was hardly warm. The utensils were the last to show while the food got even colder. We had two bottles of wine foe 4 people and we had to get a different wine... More

Onyx use to be my go to for date nights and special occasions, there's a lot of things I love about this place but it has gone so far downhill that I won't spend another dollar in there. Went for dinner last night, and Dine out is currently on so I was understanding that they were busy, not a problem,... More

It was a busy Saturday night for this restaurant during Taste White Rock the last week of January. Reservations were only available for 5:15 and 8:15 when we booked a table online Saturday in the afternoon. The online booking service was impressive. On arrival, we conveniently found free street parking in front of the restaurant. We were greeted by the... More

The Taste of White Rock 2016 brought us in the door but the food and the staff will bring us back. This was our first visit and we had heard good things about this restaurant. We came in a bit early for our reservation but the hostess was very accommodating and very easy going about us showing up early. She... More
