Description: Specializing in fresh seafood and sushi, ONYX at Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village offers delectable Asian fare. Backlit wall panels of semi-precious stones, such as carnelian and onyx, create a dramatic dining atmosphere. Bamboo floors, Japanese antiques and chandeliers grace the main dining room, while silk lanterns hanging over the sushi bar give an exotic feel. Watch while the freshest Japanese delicacies are being prepared, or sip a drink at the bar, where colourful aquatic creatures live in a double-sided, 2,000-gallon (7,571-litre) saltwater aquarium. A variety of sushi, sashimi and specialty hand rolls complement delectable Asian-influenced seafood creations. The menu offers many options to sample a variety of dishes, intended to be shared at the table. Also pairing well with Japanese cuisine is an extensive wine list featuring choices from California and around the world.

The food was extraordinary. We had ordered an entree of short ribs and another of cod. Apparently their was some confusion and two entrees of ribs where delivered. Once we clarified what we have ordered, the "server" said he would take one plate of ribs back and bring us the cod that we had ordered. The plates were in front of us, looking beautiful, and we didn't want to waste such a beautiful dish. So, we assured our "server" that it was perfectly fine and we would enjoy the two entrees of ribs which he had delivered. My husband and I started to eat our ribs - which were fabulous - and a little bit later the "server" brought us a plate with the cod was melt in your mouth extraordinary. It turns out that our charming "server" was non other than Masa Shimakawa, Chef/Restauranteur of ONYX. It was our first time eating at ONYX but it will definitely not be our last. Wonderful eating experience and Mr. Shimakawa is as charming as his restaurant.

Sushi was incredibly fresh and the service was perfect. The Wagyu beef appetizer was sensational! It was a perfect evening.

I will definitely eat here again on my next trip to Westlake Village. We ate outside on the patio, which I recommend. The food was fresh and very well seasoned- absolutely delightful.

The food here was okay. I wouldn't go out of my way to dine here unless you were staying at the Four Seasons Westlake Village (it's on site). Dinner for two (with tip and without drinks) was roughly $80. The service was attentive; we never had empty water glasses. But, food was awkwardly timed. I would rather have been served most of the courses at once, as opposed to almost one at a time. The restaurant is very liberal with the sauces they drizzle on their sushi.

On a Friday, we walked in without reservations for two. If the weather is cooperating, try to get a table outside on the patio. It was very relaxing.
