The food here is delicious. Very fresh and unique seafood preparations. The owner is always there and checking on everyone to be sure the service is great. One of our favorite places.

The presentation of the food was equally as good as the taste. The servers were prompt and friendly. They carry a very nice wine assortment with very reasonable prices. We will make this a must return soon!

David came out of the kitchen and asked if I wanted to try a special he was putting together. Sea bass and lobster. It was brilliant

Our table of 5 for lunch had 4 different fish entrees, each of them delicious and beautifully presented. The waiter made just the right suggestions when we were struggling with the many choices we had available to us—everything looked so good it was hard to choose! From appetizers to desserts, the lunch experience was excellent. I intend to try dinner there in the next few weeks.

This was our first time at the Blue Onyx and was very please with the friendliness of the restaurant. Stacy our server was very helpful, and the food was simply great... we will return for the Sushi dishes they offer, but our fish entries were very tasty, and not overcooked.

The food and service was fantastic. There were several large parties, but that did not seem to distract from the attentiveness of the service. There were four of us and everyone loved their meals.

Very creative cuisine, focused on fish, seafood and sushi, divine sauces and elegant platings, fish cooked perfectly and many dishes with little or no carbs, accompanied instead by creatively-cooked vegetables. Service is very attentive and friendly. Excellent bread too (details that matter).
If you have frequented the Red Fish restaurant on HWY 249 you will recognize some familiar dishes, this is an up-market version of that place, with Chef David masterminding the menu.

Once the food was delivered correctly, either the kitchen’s or our waiter’s fault, it was very tasty. The service was a little sloppy as empty glasses were not removed or paper from straws removed until I said something.

Overall our experience dining at Blue Onyx was exceptional. The service was prompt, courteous and professional. My Hawaiian flounder with crabmeat was delicious and the portion typically "Texas" generous. The gulf snapper with chef's spicy sauce was also excellent, but if you are sensitive to hot, spicy dishes, this one is not for you.
Chef Chang visited with us during and after our meal and was the consummate host.

The food was excellent - there were 4 of us, and we each ordered something different and everyone really enjoyed their choices. The one big negative was our waiter - while the service was fine, he put on a very affected way of speaking that was really annoying. For example - “I’ll be genuinely happy to guide you through the menu so that you may make a proper selection”

The food was phenomenal and the service was even better. Our waiter, Peter was very helpful with menu suggestions. He was very attentive and professional. We had the sea bass and prime rib and both were absolutely delicious. We started with the sticky ribs, at Peter’s suggestion, and they were the best we’ve ever had. The tuna sashimi was very fresh and yummy. I wish we had a Blue Onyx Bistro in the DFW area!

Blue Onyx has become one of my favorite places to dine. The menu and food is outstanding, the service is always good, the noise level of the main dining room is low enough, and the background music is low enough that you can hear your guests’ conversation. But their bread is to die for — the dough flown in from Paris regularly and cooked on the day of your meal.
