Onyx Steakhouse and Lounge - Port Moody
Great foodThe kitchen prepared my steak perfectly (filet, medium rare, Chicago style) and the added lobster tail was perfect. My wife also loved her steak (same as mine) and her prawn skewer. The sides we got were generally good.
I would pick this restaurant over a lot of the steakhouses that I frequent downtown (it was a lot better than Black and Blue and the Keg for instance) and certainly over the other similar priced restaurants in the Port Moody area (Keg and Boathouse).
Not necessarily a fan of the restaurant layout, we had to move because of a draft, but the food was great and the service was friendly, attentive, and accommodating.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMNice FindWe had walked or driven by this restaurant for over a year, finally trying it out for an early dinner. Very nice staff, food was very good, we will defineately keep in on our list of dinner restaurants.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and location.While kind of pricey, the food, ambiance, and beer is amazing. Excellent salad selections. Steaks are spectacular.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWill come back againBrought my wife there for our anniversary. The slow-cooked prime rib was to-die-for. The mushrooms were also very tasty. Our server knew that it was our special day, and she was very nice to me and my wife. We had such a great time. We'll be coming back soon.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMNever FailsAs always, a great meal at Onyx, Port Moody. No question, it is the best restaurant in the area. They have a new, expanded choice menu, which should appeal to a greater range of patron tastes. Special mention needs to be targeted at Lloyd, who is a great resource for: wine recommendations and selection; service; and, customer attention. One should ask for him when you arrive. I do wish that they'd bring back the Gorgonzola for their Mac and Cheese side. The Blue Cheese is still good, but the Gorgonzola was better.
Great food, great service, great wine. One cannot ask for more.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I took my niecesMy wife and I took my nieces to Onyx for their birthdays. It was the girls' first time eating there; our third. The serveice was great all around, to the point that they not only let the girls split a steak, but served them as seperate plates .
Steaks all around were cooked to perfection. On a previous visit my wife and I had found medium rare to be a little overdone but no hint of that this time.
As expected, the lobster mac and cheese was excellent, as was the bacon brussel sprouts, which has created two new brussel sprout lovers.
The tempura bacon was amazing, and has ensured that I will spend hours attempting to copy the recipe at home5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent FoodThe food at Onyx is amazing. For an appie I ordered the tuna tacos. A very well balanced dish, perfectly dressed. For my entree I ordered the petit filet a la carte with a side of lobster mac and cheese and bacon brussel sprouts. Everything was cooked perfectly. The steak was the perfect portion. The mac and cheese was a huge portion for one person and very rich and velvety. The brussel sprouts were very well seasoned and cooked just right.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Dining ExperienceWe went to Onyx to celebrate our anniversary and had a fabulous meal. The restaurant was a little quiet that night but that made it even better for our romantic dinner. Our waiter was excellent and made some great suggestions. We had our steaks done "Chicago" style and they were delicious. From the appies to the desserts we were thoroughly impressed. We will definitely go back again..5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMSurprisingly goodHaving driven by Onyx a few times, I expected your typical mini-mall steakhouse. I expected a Cactus Club rip-off with appies from Costco's freezer and steaks that tasted like they came from there too.
However, I was wrong, and I am not afraid to admit that I was wrong. Onyx demonstrated what I like to call door-to-door service, meaning that from the time I came in the door to the time I left by it, I was treated with respect, consideration, and the care given to a valued customer. The food was spectacular. The prime rib was tender, flavourful, and perfectly cooked. The server was amiable, knew the menu well, and had the right mix of spending time at the table and attending to our order.
Overall, I would highly recommend Onyx steakhouse.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
