Casual dining with innovative cocktails and wine bar styling on centrally located Argyle Street in Halifax's restaurant district. Sit at the back-lit white onyx bar and watch the bartenders at this bar work their craft. Ambitious cocktails, over 40 wines by the glass. Or peruse the extensive Wine Spectator award-winning wine list with over 350 selections. ONYX, a big city feel, yet intimate. We offer inventive cuisine with professional service. It is an evening you'll remember. ONYX has received many accolades and awards in the short time we've been open. Here are just a few: A three Star Rating in "Where to Eat in Canada", one of only 29 restaurants in Canada to achieve this rating.

  • "Gorgeous room, great service, wonderful cocktails (try the Poivre Poire!!), excellent Prix Fixe menu, terrific wine. Can't fault the place. (we did have a laugh with our waitress though. Dessert was Une Meule (referring to the Stilton cheese 'wheel') however the menu description said 'Douro Valley Stilton', so we asked her where the Douro Valley was. She said Stilton was from the Douro Valley in England. We laughed. It was the port (infused with the Stilton) that was from the Douro Valley - in Portugal, and yes, the Stilton was from England. But the dish, with figs and truffles, which sounds unbelievably bizarre, was totally amazing. Highly recommended - if you like Stilton cheese.)"
