The 6 of us enjoyed the impeccable
The 6 of us enjoyed the impeccable service (Bryan was our waiter) and the salmon and steaks were done to perfection. The shared "sides" that we ordered for the table, were just delicious (green beans, mushrooms, red skin potatoes mashed, potato medallions and mixed steamed veges plate, to name just a few). Highly recommended.Great way to celebrate birthday, or any special occasion. TMS

Perfect date night destination.
It was a relatively quiet night at the restaurant, so we received exceptional service and attention. First and foremost, the steak was superb. I had a Chicago style, medium rare New York Strip (aged 45 days) done to perfection. My wife had a petite filet mignon, again done to perfection. The sides are also worthy of attention. We had the truffle lobster mac and cheese, highly... highly recommended, sauteed vegetables and sauteed mushrooms. They were delicious; nice sized portions and prepared perfectly.
The wine list is great. Substantial with a good variety of wines from all major wine regions, including BC.
My wife and I had a truly wonderful experience. We will go again.

All is good
We had a delay between the appetizer and the main course. They offered us a desert for the small delay to make up for it. The lamb was cooked perfectly and tender as can be! The chocolate cake is huge and amazing! We will definitely return.

Onyx has a lot of amazing
Onyx has a lot of amazing items on their menu. Highlights include tempura bacon, steak tartare, creamed corn, the petit filet. My steak was cooked perfectly, it was a nice quiet romantic meal and we enjoyed everything we ordered. The only thing I wouldn't suggest is the thick cut fries. I like a thinner fry and thought they were only alright. Great drink selection. Loved the pink lemonade with rum! Would highly recommend this restaraunt.

This was our first and defiantly not last trip into the restaurant. The meal was great and the waiter was very attentive. Ambiance was great and the variety of the flavors in the food all complimented each other. The staff were friendly yet professional. The food was priced right.

Tried Onyx Steakhouse and
Tried Onyx Steakhouse and Lounge as an alternative to the Keg and is was great. Beef quality was second to none and everything was cooked perfectly. There was a little bit of noise from the lounge side but there was a Canucks game on and it really only added to the atmosphere. Very nice decor and comfy seating. We will definitely be back.

Great Dining Experience
We 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..

Having 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.

The 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.

My wife and I took my nieces
My 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 home

As 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.

Will come back again
Brought 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.

Great food and location.
While kind of pricey, the food, ambiance, and beer is amazing. Excellent salad selections. Steaks are spectacular.

The 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.

Prime Rib Sunday special very good
When I made the reservation, I didn't realize that Sunday's special feature was prime rib. I was surprised when I received a call the day before along how many prime rib dinners we thought we might order so that they could make sure they didn't run out. The restaurant was very quiet with only about 2 or 3 other tables, but it was on a long weekend. Steaks are supposed to be their specialtiy so I ordered the prime rib and it was very good. My wife ordered the Tuna dinner and said although it was good, she probably wouldn't order it again as she said it was prepared differently than she likes. Overall, nice atmosphere, and good value for prime rib on Sundays. I definitely would recommend ordering steak if you go there.

Greatest martini outdoors
My husband & I enjoyed two entrees - mine seafood & his the top sirloin. Both were delicious! With a front row seat to the Friday night summer festival & the most delicious twist on the cosmo you could dream up, we sat out on the patio & had a truly lovely evening! Thanks go to the couple who gave us a 20.$ coupon.

Good getting Better
I have been here several times, however have had significant variation in how steaks prepared. This time was notably better than all previous times. If this can remain consistent, then this will become an excellent steakhouse. In the past, I found the "Chicago" technique was overly charred, and resulted in steak being more done than ordered. This time it was pretty much perfect charring, and, the steak was totally accurate for doneness.

Onyx was a great little restaurant. We were a party of 4 and were seated near the wine racks. The seating was comfortable and nice ambiance. The staff were all super! They were friendly, funny, helpful and very accommodating. The food was all really good too. Three of us had fillets and one a new york....we all enjoyed our meals greatly! It was a very busy weekend, so they actually ran out of a few tings that we ordered....but they were so great about it all and offered us great alternatives. We really enjoyed our whole experience. I will definitely go back to Onyx Steak House and Lounge.

Great Food, Service, and Waitress
My friend girlfriend and I went here for our first time Sunday evening heard good things and wanted to try it. We ordered the menu and really enjoyed everything we ordered. The beef hoison wraps are a to die for. Definitely going to try their tempura bacon on Friday when I return.

The aging of the steak shows in flavour and tenderness. It was cooked perfectly! We will be back.
