    Food & drink was great but our waiter forgot about us & didn't serve our main dish for 30 minutes. Conejo Deals is a good way to visit this great restaurant.

    We celebrated our anniversary at Onyx. From the moment we walked in, we felt welcomed... All staff that saw us come in welcomed us in. We were quickly seated. The food was presented very well, tasted excellent, and did not disappoint! Both my husband and I were delighted with our meals - and can't wait to eat there again!

    We have been here many times, a number of them on the Living Social deal, the last couple times we have just gone there for sushi, both times, really good sushi, the sashimi is thick cut and fresh, the rolls are very good, but I have had better, still good though. The only complaint I have is that it's much more expensive than going out to another sushi place, like double. Maybe that's because it's in the Four Seasons, not sure, but it is a bit pricey.

    The wife and I were really looking forward to dining within the Four Seasons hotel chain. I have to admit that the landscape on the grounds was amazing and our waiter, Jesus, was quite attentive. One can't help but enjoy dining outside while looking at lush grounds and a beautifully landscaped waterfall area. However, the food left much to be desired. My wife and I ordered 4 rolls and to be quite honest, they really didn't taste any better than "mall restaurant sushi." In fact, we concluded that any mid-range sushi place was noticeably better. The same can be said of their food presentation-such a disappointment. It made you feel like you weren't dining at a fine restaurant. Again, great service, but food leaves so much to be desired.

    We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of our meals and deserts. though the presentation could have been nicer for this level of a restaurant. We have selected this restaurant for our get-together with friends whom we haven't seen in a long time, in hopes that it would be quiet enough for us to have a conversation. While we were treated beautifully by the kind, caring staff, the noise level became a bit above what we hoped for. So, overall, a good experience, though not quite as good as what we experienced at Four Seasons hotel in Santa Barbara.

    From the seating to the check, the service were excellent. Our server was courteous and helpful. Our entrees were a bit delayed so the our server offered free drinks for the delay. Each course was superb. Didn't notice any noise, and the room was full. I would recommend the onyx for date night - kids were there, but not many.

    Food was fabulous. Modest portions and a great presentation. A somewhat limited menu however a good variety of options. Service was impeccable. Found the prices were a bit high...expect to pay ~$70 per person for appitizer/entree/desert without drinks. Overall a good recommendation for a casual Asian dining experience.

    We decided to try Onyx after receiving a coupon offer. We were immediately and warmly greeted and seated. The chef came over to our table and asked us if we had any questions about the menu and the choices available under the terms of the coupon. He later returned at the end of the meal to asked how we enjoyed the food. I cannot recall that ever happening before in other restaurants including some very exclusive locations. The food and service were all outstanding and the portions very generous.

    This is the second time in a year that I have eaten here. Both times one person in our party was served when everyone else was finished with dinner. The manager said he was very sorry but didn't do anything about it. The food is less than average.I am very disappointed in the Four Seasons. I used to love Hampton's and went there at least once a month. It went steadily downhill. I don't understand why they can't improve their restaurants. I love the hotel and will miss going there.

    From our table overlooking the gardens and a huge waterfall, the setting was beautiful. The food was pretty good, but for the price, it should have been better. My "chef selection" sushi/sashimi plate appeared to have been put together in advance and kept in a refrigerator. At half price with my Conejo Deal, it was a good value, but I won't go back and pay full price.

    Went for my birthday and they were mindful of that with a card and a little something extra at the end. I knew it would be pricey but thought the food would be a little more special. Their soft shell crab roll was just average and the size of their individual sushi pieces was small. They make a lot of their food spicy which I can't eat so I found the menu rather limiting. Portions on their entree items were very small as well. Service was very good and our server was extremely helpful in making our selections.

The garlic noodles were delicious. They didn't have my favorite wine by the glass but she have it to me anyway. We will go back soon.

    We had fish and beef -- excellent. The appetizers were striking to look at and tasted just as good. The ambience leaves a bit to be desired. I think they have crammed in a few too many tables. This was our second dinner here. Both the food and the service were much better than I recall from the first visit.

    We had a Travel Zoo coupon for the Onyx restaurant. When we arrived, we asked to sit in the bar area so we could watch the television (NHL playoff game was on). The hostess was very accommodating and made sure the current channel was on so we could watch our game. Our Waite was very nice but the major complaint that I had was on how long it took for us to get our main course. The food was average and the only dish that stood out was desert.

    Decided to take advantage of a previously purchased Groupon that would soon be expiring, so wasn't exactly sure what to expect - in terms of meal quality/quantity, etc., relative to promotional price paid. My fiancé and I were very pleasantly surprised... from the visual presentation of our meals, to the quantity provided in each course. I am not a sushi fan, but my fiancé quickly finished his Sushi Plate appetizer and was quite pleased. Other meal highlights included the Sea Bass entree (excellent!), and the Wagyu Beef (which was brought to the table raw (w/veggies and seasonings) for me to prepare on the hot plate)... quite tasty. Service = attentive. Atmosphere = a few too many kids for my liking. Would we return = Yes.

    Not only is the food out of this world, but the service could not be better. We hosted a table for 6 for my husband's birthday - the food, presentation, and ambiance were all top of the line. The chef was so sweet, he came and wished my husband happy birthday, sent over two bowls of steaming mussels on the house….and kept checking back with us to make sure our experience was excellent. Four Seasons knows how to take such special care of their guests!
