My friend and I went here for dinner. The service was great, the food was even better! The plating was excellent, I didn't want to eat my food because it just looked so pretty on the plate. It was fancy and romantic, but also down to earth and friendly. The wine list was great, lots of choice and not too pricey. Three courses for $46 is a great deal!
I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone!
They also have "special" nights. Fridays - half price drinks! (the martini list was amazing too)
Overall, amazing experience.

This was our first time to
This was our first time to Onyx, we found that the atmosphere was very charming. We loved the Live Jazz Music being played. The food was fabulous, I especially liked the Beef tenderloin and my husband enjoyed the Tuna appetizer and the main of Lamb.
Our waitress was very pleasant and friendly, and we found the other wait staff seemed to work well together.

Incredible food. Incredible
Beatiful live jazz on Wednesday night + no corkage fee!
Their price fix menu is to die for.

This was our second visit
This was our second visit to Onyx, and it did not disappoint! The host remembered us from our previous visti, and our seat request was accommodated. The service was simply excellent, which we've come to expect---very knowledgable, super-friendly, and not at all intrusive. The food was excellent, and presented wonderfully. Will definitely be returning!!

Very Pleasantly Surprised
I expected it to be very good, but it was absolutely great. Amazing food, friendly and professional servers, and Eugene from Cavan at the bar made you want to sit and spend some time at the bar.

Onyx is simply amazing! We drove by it a couple of times as it is sandwiched between other stores and the sign isn't prominent. However, once you enter the restaurant it is beautiful and the wait still is amazing! Go for the Prix Fixe menu. The food is wonderful and the drinks are even better.

A perfect date.
This was probably the 5th or 6th time I've been to Onyx in the last couple years. I usually go on Wed. night for a ladies night (and for no corkage and back when I went it was half price apps too).
So when my date asked me where I wanted to go for my birthday celebration I immediately said Onyx. He had never been before. He was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and drinks. It's a great place to dress up and spoil yourself. He also said that in the past 18 years he's lived here he's never had better calamari... and he makes a point to try it at every place he goes. Compliments to the chef. Service is fantastic.

My wife and I celebrated our birthdays with dinner the evening of July 31st. It was one of the most enjoyable evenings we have had at a restaurant.

After reading some of the reviews, we were a little apprehensive, however we found the whole dining experience very pleasant.
Food was well presented and very tasty - had the duck a l'orange and beef medallions. The new appetizers, scallops (2 large) and grilled eggplant were delicious, as was the baked Alaska and Turtle for dessert. Went away feeling full and satisfied. Service was very good and attentive to our needs. Not that busy on a Saturday evening. Would return and recommend.

The highlight of Halifax
Finally, on the last night in Halifax, we found a gem-no pun intended. Service was great, the martini was top notch, a good wine list and the food was outstanding. Amazing the quality that comes out of a micro kitchen. When in Halifax, eat here. Every night. Nothing else can compare. Go to this place on your first night in town. You won't go elsewhere.

Possibly my new fave Hfx resto
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.)
