  • "We always enjoy our visits to onyx. From day one it has been our favorite restaurant. The service is amazing and the staff is always friendly. We have brought friends to the restaurant and reccomend onyx to all of our family and friends as well."

  • "Have been a number of times and always enjoy this restaurant. The prime rib on weekends is delicious. Many choices of appetizers so it is easy to make a meal out of these alone. Great for a couple or a small/medium group. Service always excellent. Price is reasonable."

  • "We were a group of four people, having dinner before a concert. We thought we would try Onyx. It was great. We were warmly greeted; the service was really superb and the food was fantastic. My prime rib was a perfect medium rare. We will return!"

  • "We were after steaks. My wife's filet was excellent. Last time I was there, I had the best steak and lobster I'd ever had. However, the sirloin with the lobster had a weird taste that I could not identify. Of course, it was taken off the bill, and we were given a nice dessert and coffees."

  • "Good food, though not stellar. Prime rib was rather tough. Excellent Calamari - and to me the Calamari is a good indicator of if the chef knows what he is doing or not. Decent wine list, typical well over 100% markup for a bottle of wine. Pricing was as high as some of the best restaurants in Vancouver that I have been to, may need to get the food down a little better to warrant that price point. Great service, friendly staff. Surprised by the number of small children there, would not have expected it to be as much of a family place as it seemed to be. The open concept made things very loud with the several yelling small children there. Did not like that there were TVs showing sports, too high a price point for a sports bar."

  • "Not sure what went wrong with my steak and I probably should have sent it back. Ordered bone in rib steak. For starters I doubt it was 16 oz....secondly it tasted terrible and I think it was pan fried vs grilled. Very disappointed. Oysters however were fantastic. Too many kids ...uncontrolled running in the restaurant and crying.....definitely not a special dining out restaurant...maybe recommend for lunch, but thats it."

  • "For the amount of money you pay, you hardly receive any food. To small of portions, steak was burnt."

  • "Thank you Onyx!! What a fantastic experience! We normally go to the ?eg. We were looking to find a new local spot to change things up a bit so I thought I would try an online reservation at Onyx. I really did not think that the reservation would work out but to my surprise it did. We happily prepared to go and I receive a confirmation email. We were on time and were seated right away. Unbelievable menu that we are looking forward to exploring more! The ribs were to die for that is for sure it will be hard not to order them again as they were that tasty. Thank you again Onyx looking forward to coming back. Cheers JAA"

  • "Have been here a few times before but this time the food definitely fell short, Onion Soup was burnt, Treo Brulee was well off and more like a mouse then Brulee , Even after mentioning this it wasn't adjusted from our bill. Water was only refilled when asked for (my telltale if service is good is if my glass is filled without asking)"
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "The food is excellent, and the service was perfect. However, I am in the wine industry, and the wine here is ridiculously overpriced. Delicious food, but we won't be back because of the wine prices."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "My fiancée and I celebrated valentines day a few days after the fact and really enjoyed our meals at Onyx. I had the steak Caesar salad and my fiancée had the fried rice dinner dish. We also ordered the maple bacon brussel sprouts (which were seriously life changing for someone who really dislikes brussel sprouts) and the cauliflower gratin. Everything came out quickly and hot and was incredibly delicious. We'll definitely be back :)"
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "Fantastic as always. They always remember that we've been there before and they are so personable, not just our server but other servers will say hi. And of course the food is always amazing!"

  • "Went to The Onyx when it first opened a few years ago - food was decent, but service was 'weak' ( new server, new restaurant needed time to mature). The Onyx is now comparable to any 'downtown' Vancouver spot - seated right away ( asked for a smaller table), menus arrived promptly,suggestions made substitutions not a problem and maybe the best prime rib I have had. (the Vegies were perfect) My partner's salmon was right on. Really like the idea of being able to order a main dish or a la carte with choice of sides. Only not 5 star category: We had rotating servers - which made it a bit of a challenge sometime to know who to contact. A Great night and will be back"

  • "No sense making reservations through open table, we got seated in the bar area on high stool n table, extremely uncomfortable when trying to enjoy fine dining. Portions were ridiculous for the price, do not ever order a petite steak, it wouldn't even fill your cavities. We have dined quite a few times, never had issues, but friends mentioned the same problem, we thought they were just being difficult customer, BUT they were right. Bar scent great, fine dining...give it a pass....lost us and our friends as regular customers."

  • "An excellent evening out.The food was great ( I loved the rib eye steak along with the bacon/ broccoli and the Mac cheese and lobster sides) We especially appreciated the excellent service we received . We also appreciated our server's knowledgable wine recommendation. We will definitely be back!!"
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "Loved the ambience of the place. From the time we walked in to the time we left. My boyfriend loved the buttermilk chicken wings!!! I tried the cheese toast. I had their steakhouse caesar salad, medium rare steak! It was delicious. My boyfriend had the steak, he was smitten. I was happy that he loved my find, as it was my turn to plan our date night. The waiter was awesome! the drinks were great!!! Will go there again soon!"

  • "Great Food, Great Service, I would highly recommend this restaurant. I have already raved about it to about ten people. Looking forward to the next visit"

  • "Overall our experience was okay. The restaurant is intimate and comfortable with oversized booths. Classic rock did not match atmosphere. Lime presentation was great however, not fresh and browning. Our server did a great job of the menu tour and explained the highlights of what separates Onyx from the other steakhouses. Service was slow overall. Cocktails took more than 10 minutes, appetizers 25 minutes (oysters, caesar salad, and escargot). Bread arrived after apps. Only one other table in during our experience. Caesar salad was amazing! Escargot was bland and the demi glaze used made the escargot and mushrooms become indistinguishable. Steak seasoning great but they were more pittsburgh style then our request of medium and med rare."
    Dined on 1/27/2014
  • "Enjoyed the "bite of the rock" - food and service terrific for a very reasonable price. Try the Caesar drink special - excellent!"
    Dined on 1/20/2014
  • "Delicious steak as always, bacon creamed corn and sautéed veggies were excellent. The quality of food & service is outstanding as usual."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "Went for their Bite of the Rock Menu - $35.00 3 course menu. Could have ordered off of the menu for similar price. Steak bites - bland, virtually no taste. Squash Gnocchi was excellent. Great Flavour. Cheesecake- neither of us finished it. Again little taste. No bread with meal. Disappointing experience."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "Have been several time to the White Rock restaurant and each time have left wanting to go again. Sitting at the bar having drinks and appies, they mix special drinks for you, great to chat with, the staff are alway on their game and are there to make sure your evening is one to remember. The food has always been the reason to go back, taste says it all."

  • "Steaks cooked to perfection, really enjoyed the tasty sides. Staff very attentive but not obtrusive. A very pleasant dining experience."

  • "Grew up going to the Keg for prime rib and so presumed they were the only ones that could do it "right". Sunday we celebrated a 70th birthday party at Onyx and we all had he prime rib, and it was 2nd to none. Meal - 10 Service - 10 Room - 10 A perfect night. Thank You."

  • "We go often and it always seems to get better every time we go. There new all day menu is fantastic and we are thrilled to have another dining option for Lunch/Brunch in White Rock/South Surrey."
    Dined on 12/23/2013
  • "The reservation was made online and it was not made clear that by doing so I was prepaying for our dinner. It was excessively expensive for what was offered. The meals themselves were substandard. Dispite having a reservation we were not seated for at least 10 minutes from upon arrival even though there were tables available. The server was polite and attentive but we definitely were disappointed with the menu, quality and lack of clarity regarding the fixed price menu."

  • "We had passed Onyx many times before but not gone in for one reason or another. We decided to give it a try on our anniversary and were pleasantly surprised at how large and varied the menu is... ie not just a steak house. The service was good, the noise level a bit unpleasant at the time, which was around 6 pm as the place was quite crowded. The clientele was of all ages, which we like. We will re-visit, although maybe a little later in the evening past the usual dinner hour so the noise isn't quite as interfering with our conversation."
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "Whether this was just a bad night or not, the food was second rate at best and unacceptable. The appetizers were the best part (tartar & baked brie). The baby back ribs were overcooked and dry even with the BBQ sauce. Both my wifes' and my mashed potatoes had areas that were hot but the bulk of them were cool to cold, the sauted mushrooms were schrivelled little black items, unrecognizable. The worst was the lamb shank which is normally so tender that you could peel it off of the bone with a spoon, this evening it required a steak knife. Happy Anniversary dear! There's more, however it does not concern or reflect the culinary aspect so I will leave it out."

  • "Went for dinner with people from Tornoto, one of which has gluten, dairy and coconut intolerances. Menu was great with notes on dishes that are gluten free. Food was well prepared, steak was amazing! Wine list was impressive."

  • "We chose to eat at Onyx b/c we had heard great things about their food. While the service & ambience was nice, the food, sadly, was only so-so. Their signature Onyx seasoning (used, I presume, on most of their entres) has such a specific flavour (kind of aged w/ almost a parmesan taste), that IF you dislike it, you probably wont like any of the steak. The meat was prepared as requested but still an odd taste... Unfortunate, because we recommended it to our steak-fanatic friend who really disliked it! The waitress took his barely touched steak away without asking how it was but eventually, when we were asked to fill out a survey, our friend felt obligated to say he wouldn't be back again. Too bad b/c its a hip place w/ nice environment."

  • "Had our staff Xmas lunch here last Sunday. Everything we tried was delicious! I especially liked the filet burger and the 30 min Caesar. Don't worry, it doesn't take 30 minutes to make it. Oh, the baked brie appy was delicious too!"
    Dined on 12/8/2013
  • "The food is very good and well presented, and the service staff are excellent. However, the sides of fries and baked potato are overpriced. A very small portion of fries are given. The baked potato is also very small and sour cream, if requested, is not detectable. Their "free" bread offering is also a hit and miss. Wine selection is great and the addition of some menu items that include sides was very welcome."

  • "New menu at Onyx Steak House has takin the White Rock culinary schene to the next level! Finally a steak house that has it all including an apps/side menu that makes it OK to go in and not have to order a steak....but if you did WOW what a selection. Great job and will definately be seeing you soon."
    Dined on 12/2/2013
  • "A very romantic setting, comfortable and well decorated. The food was well presented and tasty with the exception of the smashed potatoes. Would order another side next time. The server helped us select a wine and it was delicious. Service was really good, the server made us feel at home. 5 stars for the washroom. Was a pricy evening out but if it's a special occasion, this is the place to go."

  • "The service was very good, and the food was exceptional on this occasion. We have no critical comments regarding our experience. Being well-served by the owner was, as usual, a pleasant experience."
