Wonderful Evening

We recently moved to the area and have found the community to be very friendly and receptive. Onyx was no different. The atmosphere was cozy and comfortable, and our tenderloin steaks cooked to perfection. The 30 minute Caesar was delicious (and thankfully didn't take 30 minutes to make). Our... read more

We had a delicious meal at the Onyx -- their steak is very tasty and tender. The servers are attentive without being intrusive.

Atmosphere is a little lacking, but the food was excellent. Both the steak and the salmon were perfectly cooked and delicious. Service was very good. Although it is a little pricey by White Rock standards, we will go again for special occasions.

reasonable service very nice wait staff attentive enough Prime rib reasonably priced good suggestion to order the mashed and split it as there was more than enough for two to split. Prime rib was in both cases medium and med-rare a bit overdone as I guess they slow roast it for hours (then how do you get rare??)

Visited this restaurant for the 3rd time for dinner but this time with my husband. Server was new and couldn't tell me the top 3 dinner entrées. Not good. Food was great and the filet mignon and it was perfectly cooked! The flavour was fantastic. The tables were a bit worn looking and need some TLC. Or professional touch up.... More

Best steak in White Rock. Great service levels, which is worth something for sure! Our son loves the ribs.

We went for a family birthday. The sides were enticing but everything was an added cost to the basic entree. Portions were great. Fairly pricey, nice atmosphere - some of our group complained of the low lighting but I liked it.

Restauranteur has opened a meeting room upstairs...but obviously cannot handle both food service in the main restaurant as well as upstairs...60 minute wait for a casual neighbourhood supper is unacceptable...no matter how many times the sweet staff came to apologize....food overladen with spice...detracted rather than enhanced flavours...so sorry it will not become our local haunt...

Do not order the fish and chips. The fish was overcooked. The chips are like potato chips but covered in allot of lime juice and allot of salt. I sent it back. The basic burger was good. Seems they do beef alright but everything else is a waste of time. My friend ordered Yorkshire pudding with the beef in it.... More

Took my wife out to ONYX for her birthday. We went on a Monday night and it was a quiet night at the restaurant. We had amazing starter salads! She ordered wild Pacific Salmon, and I had a steak. Both entrees were fantastic. The service was very good, and the food was excellent. The pricing is commensurate with a fine... More
