    Despite reading underwhelming reviews we gave Onyx a chance. The waitress was great. The food was not what we expected. Menu items that are showing on line aren't offered any more and some that are, aren't cooked the way they are described. Between the three of us, we wouldn't order half of the items we did because of the unusual spicing, heavy batter being undercooked and luke warm.

    Having read good reviews about this restaurant, it was disappointing to say the least. The highlight of the night was the free bread basket and garlic butter. Everything went downhill after that. The steak was below average, lobster was definitely NOT fresh. Best part was the waitress who was friendly and helpful.

    Both our filet mignons were dry, chewy and over cooked. The minimal amount of blue cheese sauce did not cover up the lack of flavour of the steak.The other two people ordered the salmon which was also over cooked and dry. The prices are unreasonably high - $37 for lousy steak ONLY plus cost of side. For $256 for the four of us (only one drink each) it was a huge disappointment.

    I love my steak...who doesn't. But seriously, it's been a while since I've had a steak like the one I had at Onyx. My knife cut through that New York like a hot knife through butter. Aged 60 days!!! Why go to the Keg and give your $$ to a massive corporation when you can get a better meal at a comparable price? It was very quiet and other than having to fill my own wine glass a few times the service was great.

    Although the restaurant appears unassuming, the food and service were good. Both the Wild Salmon and Prime Rib we had were well prepared and the accompanying side dishes very plentiful. Found the prices were a tad on the high side but considering the portions we received and how tasty everything was, it is within reason.

    Good is pretty good. Prices are slightly on the higher side for this type of restaurant. They did not supply any kind of bread with butter or spread during dinner. Service was just okay. Considering restaurant was not busy, server could not remember getting the order 100% correct. Nevertheless the restaurant is worth a first try for anyone looking for a nice dinner out.

    We had been to this restaurant when they were still pretty new years ago and we weren't too impressed with their food or atmosphere (we were sitted upstairs, which I found had depressing atmosphere). We were there for Father's Day this Sunday after staying away from them since the first visit. Service was great - we are not drinkers or dessert eaters and our waitress did not try to upsell us which I found very refreshing. Food was good too. We will definitely go back now.

    Service was the pleasant as usual but the food experience was probably the worst we've had at the Onyx. We had the Prime Rib Hash and Blueberry BBQ Chicken Sandwich. The hash was bland, missing the roasted corn, skimped on the hollandaise & the meat was dry. Chicken sandwich was also surprisingly bland despite the blueberry bbq sauce. We have had dinner and appies here before, and quite enjoyed the food, so did not think that brunch would be that bad.

    The atmosphere and decor were terrible. For a high end steak place....awful. Had reservations... Restaurant barely anyone in there and not even set. Paper menus :-( website prices not the same. Charged a lot more. Meal didn't even come with the ingredients it says it does. Honestly a huge disappointment and we would never go back.

    We went for breakfast for Fathers Day and although service was good, food was overpriced and we expected better. We were the only clients at the restaurant and even when they asked me how I wanted my eggs Benedict, they were over cooked! They didn't get it right! Not even because we were the only ones there!

    We had been to Onyx White Rock before and had a very good experience. Port Moody definitely did not live up to our expectations. They don't seem to deal well with a group. The service was mediocre and we waited a very long time for our food to come. We were not impressed with the food, the calamari and onion rings were soggy. I would not recommend this restuarant to other family or friends and we will not be going back to this location.

    This is our third time at Onyx. The service was excellent. The slow-roasted prime rib was very good and the mushrooms were excellent. I would have given it 5 stars, but for whatever reason, I felt that the prime rib from the last 2 times was a bit better.

    Looking for a restaurant for Mother's Day dinner near my mother's and we luckily discovered Onyx. The menu had some items not often seen such as Steak Tartare so there was a good selection to choose from. We especially enjoyed the service provided by our waitress Melody, she was very helpful and friendly!

    Servers were very attentive and friendly. Nice little neighborhood. Tons of free parking in parkade across the street. Nice ambiance. We found our appetizers a bit bland. We liked the option of the a la carte plus family-style sides. Our meat was cooked properly to order, but again sides were a bit bland.

    Attention to detail by the server was excellent. I did not want mash potatoes and was offered a salad with my salmon. Chef did a good job but salmon was a tad overcooked; a drizzle of olive oil would have solved the problem and the amount of dressing on the salad was insufficient. Overall the food was nice. The chocolate cake is not for the feint hearted; split between 2 there was still 1/3 left over. Was almost enough for 4 people. Overall 8 out of 10. Wine was delicious.

    We'd heard service had improved, so we decided to try it again. We had a coupon for a two for one entree and figured why not? We went in very skeptical as we'd been twice before and on both occasions the service was slow and painful. Happy to report it was not the case this time. Our waitress was prompt and very attentive, as was the greeter. Really happy with our experience this time. Now keep it up!!!! We need a good restaurant in this area. All the best.

    It holds a solid 4 being carried by the ambience and service. The staff was exceptional and I have dined from Daniel in New York City and about 50 nights of fine dinning service thru Chicago, Miami, Vegas, Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, DC, Charlotte etc.. I tried a bit of a few dishes that were great BUT I must say that I was not so thrilled with the Prime Rib which is featured on the weekends. I really didn't want to complain but it was lacking in any flavour and not seasoned correctly. With the service we received I would visit again .. Just going to try another dish. For people in Port Moody area it is a great option for date night, guests, business ambience. If your outside, I would highly recommend as its a gem in a unique spot.

    Despite the ridiculously overattentive service (we' were there here to visit our friends, not chat with the waiters), one was left with the feeling that this restaurant is a chain and their bottom line is the most important thing. The typical steaks and prime rib were flavourless, the caesar salad was dry, and the side of braised brussel sprouts with bacon tasted like the bacon was left over from last weekend's brunch. A giant chocolate cake for dessert was dry and the frosting grainy. Have to say that even though the Keg is not a place I frequent gladly, if we're talking apples to apples, the Keg is superior in every way except for noise level.

    Service was prompt and friendly. Waiter (Jose) recognized us from before and remembered that we had expressed interest in returning on a weekend for the prime rib special - which is exactly what we ordered! We also ordered a few appetizers. The fresh oysters were phenomenal. The prime rib was fantastic - Onyx definitely has a way with their beef. The Yorkshire pudding and veggies were also fantastic. We ended the meal with a banana split - hadn't had one in years, and it was very good. Jose checked on us regularly without being intrusive. All in all, it was a fantastic experience!

    Was greeted very nicely and seated right away. We didn't like our table so we asked to move which was done fast and got a great booth. The service was impeccable. Everyone was so nice and friendly. Not a big red wine list. But found a glass from California that was very good. We had the 5oz filet mignon. Nice to have the smaller option. Mine was good. My dates had some gristle and fat which he did not like. I added the Brussels sprouts to my dinner and were very yummy. The food needed something. Not the best steak dinner. I've had better and I have had worse. But felt very comfortable and wasn't all the way downtown.

    We had reservations for two and we were seated after some consultation between the Host and the manager. Our table was so near the front door we had a cold draft every time the front door was opened. We were not greeted by our server for at least 5-7 minutes which at that time she took our drink order. We thought it unusual since it was Valentine's Day and the store was busy. The service from her did not match our expectations of good service. The restaurant manager ended up taking our food order. Our drinks took a long time to arrive but our food came out to us in a timeley manner. The food was good but not exceptional. We only left a 15% tip to our server. We expected better service from a restaurant with the reputation of Onyx.
